One question. When I go into the DIC screen and put it on Articulation for example and turn the car off then back on again, the screen resets to the 1st menu (I believe it's AUTO) of that particular screen.
Is there a way to keep it on the Articulation screen every time I turn the car on?
A bit picky, but just curious.
Lastly, you think I can just use the Uconnect app on my phone to remote turn off the engine for cool down instead of waiting 1-2min as suggested in the manual and other forums. After work I just want to get in the house and relax instead of sitting in my car with the garage open for 2 minutes.
The cool down doesn't mean you have to sit in your garage for 2 minutes. I drive home going 55 mph. The last mile it drops to 40 mph, then down to 30 mph for another 4 blocks. This is more than enough cool down time for the diesel. The only time I let it idle for 2 minutes is after I tow the boat on a long trip.
