Re: Economy Mode button, hate the default?!

I was referring to the ECO only TSB that the poster quoted (http://www.wk2jeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk2_0809814.pdf).

I had already written off as a hoax the TSB you quoted teasing us about changing the ECO default. I did so because it has zero of the language or tech actions listed in the ECO only TSB 08-098-14 for MY15. The MY15 only TSB speaks to a "reconfigure" that involves the BCM. The MY14 TSB lists only the ECO default as the only "new" item and yet it only has the prior version language and steps for a TCM reflash. Huh? So they changed the ECO default fix from a BCM reconfigure (MY15) to being included in a TCM reflash (MY14). Hmm, so a TCM reflash can effect the BCM? Interesting but I don't buy it. They just don't make sense sometimes. They are probably under a lot of pressure from us owners.

They boffed TSB 21-003-15 (5.7l) and TSB 21-004-15 (3.0l/3.6l) in stating that they addressed ECO default on MY14.

np, I'm hoping they meant what they said that the point of the revised TSB with only one addition, ECO default, was to do just that. I think they got caught up in this being a revised, as in delete old ones, trans flash TSB and so sure that all was carried forward properly with prior revisions that they just forgot to include the BCM reconfigure steps for the ECO default. Proof will be when/if they revise this TSB to include it once they see their error.

I wouldn't have to "slap her back" so much

I'm not sure if I follow but it sounds good :-)
I'm not giving up hope, pretty sure the Eco default will be addressed sooner or later, probably later, maybe never, haha

Interesting. I never had that message, using iPhone 5s and 6, that's actually one of the things that work really well on mine, no complaints in general with the 8.4 system, well, when I think of it, the Nav is not good (worse than the one in my 2009 VW Passat) and the speed lockout is insane...

Have iPhone 6 it's working okay. Some of Ram owners have had that message. Replace head unit.

Rewrite, that's bologna, they already have it in MY15.
It actually worried me first almost week was getting crappy MPG in my new MY15 compared to my MY14.

Until I realized the ECO button was off.
Zero difference how it feels, but MPG definitely improved.

This is for V6 gas anyway.
