No. I don't think so, anyway, and I'm looking down at them a lot.

The app is DashCommand.

Here's the OBDII scanner:

HTH...

So when you try to pass or accelerate from 30, does it kick down? When you stab the go pedal, does it kick down? That scanner is the Bluetooth variant, mine is the wifi, not sure on the settings you need but that's the same combo I have, dash command and my module looks like that one, just wifi.

Our transmissions do not have a kick down gear in them. Meaning no 2nd and 3rd prime gears. Depending on speed it wont downshift to a lower gear to take off if you hit it. Like if im doing 40 and its in second, it wont shift down to 1st. It will stay in second and thus will not pull like it should. (Btw 1st is good to 45 in manual mode)

It should still downshift in a passing situation, and cruising @ 30 would likely be in 4th or even 5th if minimal load, should kick down to 2nd or at least 3rd when power is requested. I hear ya tho Jeff, not a traditional kickdown of days passed, my '73 Ford BB acts like a horse stung in the ass when I stab it... Norris, maybe just drive like a rally driver and manny shift when you wana go hard...

Speaking of filling, last weekend I got to station with "4 miles left to tank" according to EVIC. I normally don't go that low, but was away for the weekend, and was waiting to cross into NJ for some cheaper gas. Anyways, it only took about 18 gallons. Aren't our tanks 21? So my WK is telling me I will only get 4 miles out of those last 3 gallons? LOL

Lets just say that when it got to where i shut her down the fuel gauge didnt move. Drove it to the gas station and she took 20.xx gallons. Never spuddered at all. The thing said like 0 miles till empty for like 10 miles lol

LOL. I am sure I will get more also. Would just be nice if the miles remaining were accurate. It was pretty on point in my WJ, even though the MPG portion was off. Maybe remaining gallons would be nice to see LOL

So my WK is telling me I will only get 4 miles out of those last 3 gallons? LOL

I must admit, Alex's recent interest in the folding keys reignited my curiosity as well. I've had a few different flip keys in my watch list on eBay for quite awhile, just never pulled the trigger. I did this week. I ordered one on Monday and tie was delivered Thursday. I disassembled it and took the blade to get cut at the local hardware store. When I reassembled it I wasn't happy with the fit and finish so I worked it over a bit. The screws that come with it are absolute junk, super soft and strip just taking it apart the first time, once I got em out initially I knew I'd be swapping those out. Months ago I went to my local ace and found the correct screws for the oem keys (they were starting to round out as well) and bought a few. I have 3 oem keys and have given some of my Jeep owning buddies/family replacement screws for their remotes as well, but I still had a few left in my bin. I had to mill out one of the holes to allow the slightly larger head of the new screw to recess, (if you do this, take care not to go too deep and take away any purchase the screw will achieve when installed), the bottom screw went in fine. If you were able to find the right screws with a smaller head to more closely match the ones it came with, this could all be avoided, I was working with what I had. Other than that it was pretty straight forward, swapped the internals from one of my oem remotes over, wound the spring tension about 1.5 turns, I did cut a small strip of electrical tape to take up the slight gap between the case body and the metal loop for attaching to the key ring, it had minimal movement but would've driven me insane, you'll see if you get one. All said and done, I like it well enough for now, it's a bit bigger than the oem when extended but much nicer in the pocket. I'll give it a couple months and see how it holds up. I'm only in the project about $8 or so, if any of y'all dive into it and have Q's, just hit me up. Hope this helps anyone on the fence to decide one way or the other.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

@Rkirk: I think Jeff is right. It doesn't kick down. I was paying attention this morning on my way to work.

@Strongjeff & Rkirk shifting down (aka manual shifting) DOES fix the problem (well it's 10x better).

@Rkirk when I was "granny driving" I hit 3rd at 30mph...
Pretty much EVERYTHING I do is WOT (0-whatever or whatever to "before that light turns red!" or coasting to whatever... )

Looks like I gotta spend some time getting the scanner connected to the phone...

On a side note, what I did today was clean MAF sensor!!
