Then of course you tell me that it can't easily be done....but then you backpeddle and say that it can't easily be done without disabling the entire system...blah blah blah. You unwittingly admitted that it could be done, but had to put your own qualifiers in there to save face.
Nah. I actually said that way back in post #23 under "available options" before you started down this path and talking about phantom "signals" telling the ASCM to go into Aero mode and then reversing when you realized that didn't exist and going down the "Hall effect" route. But whatever.

Okay. Works for me.

Mission Accomplished! No warning lights, no issues. I can prevent or enable Aero mode with a simple flick of a toggle switch.

Any PROOF to this "claim"

Video would be best.

Why are you requesting he post a video showing him pressing the ignition switch on the Jeep?

That's how I prevent or enable Aero mode without warning lights or issues—simple and elegant: Jeep off = aero mode prevented; Jeep running = aero mode enabled.

Aero mode even with ECO off?

If he did anything at all he is simply cutting power to the ASCM with his switch. So, as noted a nauseating number of times already, he isn't disabling Aero mode selectively--he's disabling the entire suspension system (i.e. "tearing the engine out to increase gas mileage"). This was in fact discussed as an option (not a GOOD one)...to which he said that wasn't what he would do anyway. So if that's what he did...we're back to that I suppose.

When it is left off is that when by accident someone hits one of the suspension buttons or power cycles, or the dealership does anything involving scanning the vehicle is when there will be unpleasant surprises. Plus, the longer you leave the system without power the more the air springs will become "unbalanced" and start affecting handling due to the lack of leveling function compensating for weight, temp changes, etc. In reading the air spring PSI with WiTech over a 25 mile run it's pretty interesting just how much the pressure changes simply from temperature shifts. In essence it's a very bad mod and not one I would recommend, if in fact that's what was done.

Re: Aero mode even with ECO off?

I've been reading through all of this back and forth. Quite frankly, I just don't see the gain in making a mod like that.

I could see a slight "usefulness"...mostly from an appearance perspective. Though--it's really hard to tell the difference between aero and non-aero mode unless you're really looking for it. I don't believe any mod which completely disables the entire suspension (rather than properly finding the way to disable just that one mode) is very useful. It even has the potential to be dangerous.

In any case this silliness has run its course on all sides I think. I for one apologize to all the others on here if I was being a bit too...nasty in my responses to a certain individual. You all shouldn't have to read flame fests on here. I tend to react that way when I feel people are going off on uninformed tangents and should probably just let people do what they're going to do

Sure....but then it will take all of 10 seconds for someone to say the video is fake or that there I'll be long term consequences for what I've done. That's not an issue because I don't leave it disabled longer than I'm on the highway.
