FAQs

General

Is the Pedal Commander safe?

Yes! Pedal Commander only gives you the performance reserved by the manufacturer. It will only be switched on when you really need the power and will not push your vehicle beyond its original safety measures.

Will Pedal Commander void my vehicle’s warranty?

When a dealership does any kind of work or repair, they run a scan on the vehicle's computer to see if anything has been changed. Other aftermarket tuners and programmers will leave "flags" on the ECU after they've been installed, and will remain even after they've been removed. These digital footprints are what cause the dealership to void any kind of claim or maintenance program.

Pedal Commander is 100% UNTRACEABLE by dealerships because it doesn't leave these "flags" on your ECU. Before going in for service, just make sure you turn the unit off and tuck it out of sight and you're good to go!

But if you’re going in for any kind of repair or problem, we recommend removing the unit just to be safe because when a dealership starts running diagnostics, they look for things like this to avoid a warranty payout.

Does the Pedal Commander increase HorsePower?

Pedal Commander dos not increase horsepower, but it gives you complete customization control over how you want your gas pedal to respond with acceleration.

Will the Pedal Commander work with my tuner/programmer?

Absolutely! The Pedal commander compliments any tune, performance chip or aftermarket add-on. We only intercept the electronic signal and remap the throttle curve, so its beauty lies in its simplicity. You will be pleased with the results.

Do I have to take my car to a shop to get Pedal Commander installed?

No, Pedal Commander is an easy plug-and-play installation that takes just a few minutes. Make sure to follow the instructions properly that’s including with your unit to prevent any issues.

Will I save fuel using the Pedal Commander?

Yes, Eco mode reduces the fuel that you use by decreasing your throttle response and improving your MPG.

Can I shift through the modes while I’m driving/accelerating?

We recommend changing the modes of the PC unit ( Eco, City, Sport, or Sport+) while your foot is off the accelerator or while cruise control is disengaged. By doing this, it will prevent any CEL or EPC lights coming on and putting your vehicle into limp mode. Each of our modes has different signal strengths so we say to do this as a preventative measure.

Will Pedal Commander stay on the same settings after it is turned off and on?

The Pedal Commander has a memory that retains the last mode you left it in before you shut your vehicle off. You won't have to worry about putting it back into your favorite mode every time you go for a drive.

Is the Pedal Commander waterproof?

The Pedal Commander is water resistant, but it is not water proof.

Do I need to re-start the desired mode every time I start the car?

The Pedal Commander has a memory that retains the last mode you left it in before you shut your vehicle off. You won't have to worry about putting it back into your favorite mode every time you go for a drive.

Product

What are the different modes on the Pedal Commander?

To change modes, press the white star button. This will illuminate the LED light for City, Sport or Sport+.

 

ECO

Eco mode​ slows down the throttle response.

It allows you to maximize fuel economy up to 20% over the stock ratings. It also doubles as a valet mode to keep a driver (or even your newly licensed teenager) from being able to accelerate above a certain rate.

***Eco mode is not in effect while your vehicle is in cruise control.***

 

CITY

City mode​ is perfect for daily driving.

Many of our customers say that city mode allows the vehicle to accelerate as it should have from the factory. It gives you the response of an "old school" throttle cable with a 1:1 pedal-to-throttle acceleration ratio.

 

SPORT / SPORT+

Sport and Sport+ modes​ are not for the light hearted!

Gives any vehicle the response and acceleration of a race car, allowing you to get up and go when you need to without waiting for the ECU to catch up to your foot. Perfect for spirited driving or on a race track. Please use with caution!

What are the (-) & (+) settings on the Pedal Commander?

Each mode can have its sensitivity adjusted to 9 different levels.

The minus button “-” will light a red LED and decrease the sensitivity from -1 to -4.

The plus button “+” will light a green LED and increase the sensitivity from +1 to 4.

When there is no red or light LED lit between a number, you are in the base sensitivity setting for that
mode.

How do you turn the Pedal Commander off?

To turn the Pedal Commander off, use the yellow program button to cycle through the modes. It should go from City, to Sport, to Sport+, and then to all the LED lights being off.

When all the lights are off, Pedal Commander is off and you are back to your vehicle's stock throttle response.

Do I need to turn the Pedal Commander off manually when I am done driving.

You do not need to worry about turning the Pedal Commander off manually. The Pedal Commander unit will automatically shut off when the ECU in your vehicle goes to "sleep," which is usually 5 minutes after you shut off the engine.

Why is ECO mode not working? All the other modes light up, but it won’t go into ECO mode.

To go into ECO mode, you need to press and hold the yellow program button for 3 seconds.

This is a safety feature meant to keep you from accidentally cycling into a mode with a drastically slower response.
