LOL, time to get pissed!! hehehe The eco light is nothing more than a light on your dash and is literally nothing more. The V6 Pentastar does not have cylinder de-activation. Doesnt really need it as it does pretty good as it is especially in our heavy SUV's.

Re: Mind blown!!!

I found the strap when I was measuring to cut a stick to use to prop up the lid, and looking around for a spot to set it in.

Re: Mind blown!!!

Thanks, I didn't know it was there. From the OP's topic I was expecting to find out we were actually driving Transformers and at night while we are sleeping they are off fighting crime. Seriously though it's good to see people still appreciate the little things thanks again.

On the 6 cyl, all it means is the throttle is at a very light throttle application or that you have no pressure on the gas pedal.

Re: Mind blown!!!

Is there any WORSE feeling in the world than knowing you've been lied to? That is what is upsetting me the most right now. Yes im disappointed that I too have been unknowingly lying to my friends/parents that the car turns to a 4-cylinder. Oh well, I'm still incredibly satisfied with my Jeep. Maybe when the time comes to get another one I'll wait until the %@#$^& salesmen get more knowledgeable about what they are selling.

Re: Mind blown!!!

The OM is kinda vague (see page 312 in 5th) but suspect it is this: "This feature allows you to monitor when you are driving in a fuel efficient manner, and it can be used to modify driving habits in order to increase fuel economy" also "The FUEL SAVER MODE message will display above the average fuel economy in the EVIC display"

My ECO is on when in cruise at 60 mph.

Sorry I had to break it to you but I'm not surprised that other salesmen out there got this one wrong too. I wonder how many people with V6 think this because their salesmen told them so. Fortunately I knew better and by the time he said this he had told me 3 or 4 other things that weren't correct so I just dismissed it.

Good luck with that. I have never met a salesman that truly knew their product. That's unfortunate because they only have so many models and configurations - I would really think they would be experts. Sadly I guess they just don't care.

Re: Mind blown!!!

On your EVIC display for fuel economy there will be a little triangle on the graph representing your average since you last reset. ECO will display when you are doing better than that.

Re: Mind blown!!!

In the rear of the truck, lift the floor piece where the spare is located and look under the latch part.
