Re: Stop/Start

Can the dealer flash it to turn it off permanently?

I just got my wife a trail hawk and shes unsure if she likes it.

Maybe we can just pull a fuse or disconnect the switch?

Re: Stop/Start

We bought our 2014 Cherokee Trailhawk new last year, we now have a new 2016 on order.

We didn't know anything about "stop & start" when ordering our new Jeep. Is this standard on all new 2016? And if so, can someone tell me more about it? I don't think I would like it... We are going from the 2.4-liter four-cylinder to the 3.2-liter V-6 in the new Jeep for better performance.

Re: Stop/Start

If ESS Electronic Stop and Start is supposed to save on gas mileage, why does it disable itself when the gas tank is low?

Re: Stop/Start

We leave ours on. Easy to get used to, especially coming from a hybrid. Amazed at all the negative comments. I wish my GC diesel had it.

Jim:

I suspect you are right and FCA did this more to sastify the EPA and tree huggers that they were doing something to improve mpg than actually improving mpg to any great extent. I also suspect the elusive (unicorn) 9th gear falls into this same camp as well.

It looks like you can ONLY get a 2016 3.2L with the stop and start. I have never seen a window sticker with a 3.2L without it. I have heard that there is no way to have it disabled permanently, including no way to change the default in the settings. After each time you start the car, you can easily turn it off with the push of a physical button (no menus or anything).

Disconnect the wire to the hood switch.
