Kill MDS
Anyone know how to kill mds so that the engine will just stay with 8 cylenders rather than flipping back and forth? :D

Re: Kill MDS
easiest way is to push the tow/haul button

Re: Kill MDS
is that the only thing that it does .. or does it also play with the gear box .... I just want it to run on all 8 and not keep switching.

It remaps the gear box. It enables an additional underdrive gear and disables the overdrive gear.

Re: Kill MDS
They way we used to do it in my Hemi Magnum was to drop it from "D" into the specific gear and that disable it.

Re: Kill MDS
Can't tell when mine switches other than the EVIC proudly proclaiming ECO. I just have to take it on faith that it is switching from 8 to 4 and back.

Re: Kill MDS
keep your foot in it. It only switches at light throttle.

Shift from D to 5, stays out of MDS regardless of throttle use.

MDS shuts off 4 cylinders when you are traveling 55mph+ and on flat ground or downhill to save gas.
