Do you have a Pedal Commander for my vehicle?
Most likely! Please click on the “Home” tab towards the top of this page and select your vehicle from the drop down options; it will ask you for the manufacturer, model, and engine size. If you see your vehicle listed, click “find my vehicle” and it should direct you to a product page with the right Pedal Commander for you!
If you do not see your vehicle listed, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put “Vehicle not listed on website” as the title of your email, and include your year, make, model and engine size in the body text. We will get back to you as soon as possible and let you know!
Will Pedal Commander cause any additional wear and tear on my car?
No, Pedal Commander only gives you the performance reserved by the manufacturer (which is provided in their engine design). As Pedal Commander will only be switched on when you really need the power (e.g. when you accelerate, Pedal Commander will not function during idle), your car’s mechanical components (engine, clutch, transmission, brakes) are only stressed in line with the technically feasible scope. All protection functions and safety measures of the engine and the vehicle’s ECU are never overridden or switched off. It’s impossible for Pedal Commander to push your vehicle beyond its original safety measures.
I installed my Pedal Commander and immediately got a check-engine light, what did I do wrong?
The check-engine light is a common side effect of the vehicle’s computer not being fully asleep before the throttle sensor is unplugged during install. It senses something was disconnected and it’s letting you know.
This is why it is very important to let the vehicle sit off with the key fob 30 feet away for at least 30 minutes. If you did this and still got the check-engine light, your vehicle may need longer to allow the ECU to power down (try 1 hour) and you should re-attempt the install.
Make sure you hear BOTH plugs *click* into place to signify they are locked in. Sometimes you can push them all the way in and it may feel snug, but if they do not click, they are not fully seated and you will get the check-engine light again.
The check-engine light can be cleared by unplugging the negative terminal on your battery for 15 minutes, or you can clear it with an OBDII code reader available at any auto parts store.
My Pedal Commander has been working great for awhile, but I got a check-engine light the other day and my vehicle went into limp mode. Whats happening?
This check-engine light usually happens when the plugs aren’t “locked” in during the initial install and they come loose over time.
Remove the Pedal Commander and reconnect your vehicle’s original plugs. You can then clear the code by unplugging the negative terminal on your battery for 15 minutes, or you can clear it with an OBDII code reader available at any auto parts store.
Then re-install the Pedal Commander, and make sure you hear BOTH plugs *click* into place to signify they are locked in. Sometimes you can push them all the way in and it may feel snug, but if they do not click, they are not fully seated and you will get the check-engine light again.
I broke my the bracket that holds my Pedal Commander to the dash, can you send me a new one?
Absolutely! Please send an email to email@example.com. Please put “Pedal Commander bracket replacement” as the title of your email, and include your name, shipping address, and your order number in the body text.
Is Pedal Commander compatible with other tuner’s and programmers? What makes Pedal Commander different or better than a tuner/programmer?
A tuner/programmer is a great tool to have, it changes multiple facets of your vehicle’s ECU: air/fuel ratios, timing, throttle, etc. BUT it will also void your warranty.
Pedal Commander just allows you to control the throttle response of your vehicle, and it wont void a warranty. Plus, it has a much wider range of customization ability than a programmer/tuner or anything similar because the only way to achieve these changes is by connecting directly to the throttle sensor, whereas programmers/tuners connect via the OBDII port.
But they absolutely work very well together. I personally run a DiabloSport programmer on my SRT8 Jeep with my Pedal Commander, and they make a great pair!
I sold my car, can I put my Pedal Commander on my new car?
Maybe! Some vehicles will use the same plug and program, however, most do not. Send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your previous and new vehicle information and we will be happy to let you know if the Pedal Commander you purchased is compatible with both vehicles.
Will Pedal Commander void my vehicle’s warranty?
We understand not wanting to risk voiding the maintenance program on a new vehicle, but that no longer means you have to wait 5 years/50,000 miles before you can start customizing your car or truck to drive how you want it to.
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. 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.
Why isn’t ECO mode working? All the other modes light up, but it won’t go into ECO mode. Is my unit defective?
To activate ECO mode, press and hold the yellow program button for 3 seconds. This is a safety feature to keep you from accidentally going into the dramatically slow throttle response of ECO mode.
Do I have to turn Pedal Commander off every time I turn off my car?
No. Pedal Commander relies on your vehicle for power, it has no internal battery. Once your vehicle has completely powered down (about 5 minutes after you shut it off), the Pedal Commander will automatically shut off.
Is Pedal Commander smog/emissions legal in California?
Yes! We are located in southern California and also know the struggles of wanting to modify your car within legal smog and emissions limits. Pedal Commander has ZERO effect on smog or emissions and won’t cause any issues when it comes time for inspection.
Will I have to put it back into my favorite mode every time I want to drive my car?
No. Pedal Commander has an internal memory that will automatically come back on in the last mode you left it in.
Does Pedal Commander have a warranty?
Yes! Each Pedal Commander purchase comes with a 2-year product warranty as long as you can provide a copy of your receipt. This warranty is not transferable if you sell the unit or purchase it used.
