WHAT IS

PEDAL COMMANDER?

If you are looking to improve your overall driving experiance or reduce your eco-footprint, you need a Pedal Commander Throttle Response controller. Most newer vehicles are equipped with Drive By Wire systems. This means your acceleration is no longer powered with the old school bowden tie throttle cable that gave you a linear relationship between your right foot and the throttle body, but now everything is powered by electronics and your car’s computer (ECU). The drive by wire systems does not provide the same performance as it creates a throttle lag from your initial accelerator push.

Manufacturers built vehicles with a "one size fits all" process in an attempt to make most customers happy. Actuality manufacturers can build more responsive vehicles but they do not know who would be end purchaser. For lack of a better term, they need to make the vehicle “idiot-proof".
This is the point all aftermarket tuners and acsesories companies jumps in the secene. you customize your vehicle to make it more comfortable and convenient for your individual needs.
This is what The Pedal Commander does for your vehicle. The Pedal Commander throttle response controller gives drivers full control of their gas pedal sensitivity. With 4 mode and 36 preset levels, the Pedal Commander has a setting for every driving style. You truly have the ability to make your vehicle’s response exactly how you want it when you want it.

What is With Drive By Wire System?

Vehicles technology is are evolving every year with new developments. The systems that were once mechanically controlled are now controlled by the vehicle’s computer. One such new system is the Electronic Throttle Control (ETC), known as drive-wire-wire, which is an automobile technology that electronically connects the accelerator pedal to the throttle, replacing a mechanical linkage.

A typical drive-by-wire system has 3 major components: (1) an accelerator pedal model, (2) a powertrain/engine control system (PCM/ECM), and (3) a throttle valve body that opens and closes by the electric motor. It also has several benefits such as reduced weight to take the pressure off the engine, better placement for easier time control and flexibility, and helps improve fuel economy and traction. However, it comes with its limitations. So Pedal Commander appliciable to only Drive by wire Sytems

What is With Drive By Wire System?

Why Do I need Pedal Commander?

The largest disadvantage of Drive By Wire System, It delivers the throttle response time is significantly slower.
Manufacturers limit the response of the throttle in 2 step.

  • First, they limit how much of the throttle body will open. For example, you can press the gas pedal all the way (100%), but the ECU will open the throttle body 80% to 100% depending of manufacturer
  • Second, the ECU programming decides how fast the throttle body will open. In other words, it doesn’t really matter how fast your right foot is flooring the gas pedal. The ECU controls the speed of the signal so your right foot can not make the throttle body faster.
    (same as hitting enter button faster, it will not make your computer faster )

Pedal Commander solves this problem. The Pedal Commander connects in-line with the "Engine Control Unit"system at the Pedal Position Sensors (gas pedal) and is designed to take the information at the PPS and compile it in a high-speed control circuit. It also slightly amplifies that numbers and sends it directly to the ECU. By sending the information to the computer this way, a couple of checks that the engine computer will make, so can be bypassed before sending the signal to open the throttle body.

This gives you the ability remap throttle map and speed to eliminate the delay from your accelerator (gas pedal), allowing your engine to respond faster. As a result, your gas pedal becomes more sensitive and make your engine more responsive like old school feel.

City Mode Chart

City Mode

Gives you a more active throttle response. 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 close to 1:1 pedal-to-throttle acceleration ratio.

*The recommended mode to drive in traffic.
