Pedal Commander is designed with safety in mind and is intended to improve your vehicle's throttle response without compromising safety or reliability. The device works by modifying the electronic signals sent between the accelerator pedal and the engine's throttle, allowing the driver to access the vehicle's existing power more quickly and easily. When you press the accelerator pedal, the Pedal Commander intercepts the signal that is sent to the vehicle's electronic system and modifies it according to the settings you have chosen. The Pedal Commander then sends a modified signal to the electronic system, which adjusts the throttle response accordingly.
The Pedal Commander offers a range of different modes and settings that allow you to customize the throttle response of your vehicle to suit your driving preferences. For example, you can choose from different levels of sensitivity, ranging from a more gradual response to a more aggressive response. You can also adjust the Pedal Commander to suit different driving conditions, such as when driving off-road or in heavy traffic.
Overall, the Pedal Commander is designed to provide a more responsive and enjoyable driving experience by allowing you to customize the throttle response of your vehicle. By giving you greater control over the vehicle's acceleration, it can help you to get the most out of your vehicle's performance and enjoy a more engaging driving experience.
When a dealership does any kind of work or repair, they run a scan on the vehicle's computer to see if anything has been changed. Other aftermarket tuners and programmers will leave "flags" on the ECU after they've been installed, and will remain even after they've been removed. These digital footprints are what causes dealerships to void any kind of claim or maintenance program.
Pedal Commander is 100% UNTRACEABLE by dealerships because it doesn't leave these "flags" on your ECU. Before going in for service, just make sure you turn the unit off and tuck it out of sight and you're good to go!
If you're going in for any kind of repair or problem, we recommend removing the unit just to be safe because when a dealership starts running diagnostics, they look for things like this to avoid a warranty payout.
The Pedal Commander is designed to improve the throttle response of a vehicle, which can make it feel more powerful and responsive. However, it does not actually increase the horsepower of the engine.
The device works by modifying the electronic signals sent between the accelerator pedal and the engine's throttle, allowing the driver to access the vehicle's existing power more quickly and easily. By reducing the delay between pressing the accelerator pedal and the engine's response, the Pedal Commander can make the vehicle feel more powerful and responsive.
It's important to note that while the Pedal Commander can improve the feel of a vehicle's acceleration, it does not actually increase the vehicle's horsepower or torque.
Absolutely! The Pedal commander compliments any tune, performance chip, or aftermarket add-on. We only intercept the electronic signal and remap the throttle curve, so its beauty lies in its simplicity. You will be pleased with the results.
No, the Pedal Commander is an easy plug-and-play installation that takes just a few minutes. Make sure to follow the instructions that's included with your unit to prevent any issues. Visit our Installation Page to watch installation videos as well.
The Eco mode on the Pedal Commander helps to save fuel by providing a more gradual and efficient throttle response. When you press the accelerator pedal in Eco mode, the Pedal Commander sends a signal to the vehicle's electronic system to reduce the amount of power that is delivered to the engine. This can help you to accelerate more smoothly and gradually, which can reduce the amount of fuel that is consumed by the engine.
In addition to providing a more efficient throttle response, the Eco mode on the Pedal Commander also encourages a more gentle and efficient driving style. Reducing the amount of power that is delivered to the engine when you press the accelerator pedal, it can help you to avoid sudden acceleration and rapid changes in speed, which can be less fuel-efficient. This can be especially useful when driving in stop-and-go traffic or in other situations where you need to maintain a consistent speed.
It's important to note that while the Eco mode on the Pedal Commander can help maximize fuel economy, it may not be ideal for all driving situations. For example, when you need to accelerate quickly to merge onto a highway or pass another vehicle, you may want to switch to a different mode on the Pedal Commander to get the most out of your vehicle's performance. Overall, the Eco mode on the Pedal Commander is designed to help you save fuel by providing a more efficient and gradual throttle response and encouraging a more gentle and efficient driving style.
Pedal Commander is not waterproof, but it is designed to be water-resistant. The device is built with a high-quality casing and sealed to protect it from water damage, but it is not completely waterproof and should not be submerged in water.
While the device is designed to resist water damage from splashes and light rain, it's important to avoid exposing it to excessive moisture or water, as this could potentially cause damage to the internal components of the Pedal Commander. If you need to use the device in wet conditions, it's recommended to cover it with a protective casing or bag to prevent it from getting wet.
Overall, while the Pedal Commander is designed to be water-resistant, it's important to take appropriate precautions to protect it from water damage and ensure that it continues to function properly.
Yes! The Pedal Commander is just as effective on manual transmissions as it is on automatics.

We recommend changing the modes of the PC unit ( Eco, City, Sport, or Sport+) while your foot is off the accelerator or while cruise control is disengaged. By doing this, it will prevent any CEL or EPC lights coming on and putting your vehicle into limp mode. Each of our modes have different signal strengths so we say to do this as a preventative measure.
Pedal Commander has four different modes that adjust the sensitivity and response of the throttle. These modes include:ECO MODE:
This mode reduces throttle response to save fuel and promote better fuel efficiency. It is ideal for normal driving situations where you do not require much acceleration.CITY MODE:
This mode is somewhere between Eco and Sport modes. It is ideal for city driving, where you need to accelerate and decelerate often. Many of our customers say that city mode allows the vehicle to accelerate as it should have from the factory. It gives you the response of an "old school" throttle cable with a 1:1 pedal-to-throttle acceleration ratio.SPORT MODE:
This mode increases the throttle response to provide a more responsive and engaging driving experience. It is ideal for sporty driving and situations where you require more acceleration.SPORT+ MODE:
This mode provides the most aggressive throttle response and is ideal for high-performance driving situations. It provides maximum throttle response for the most performance-oriented driving experience. It's suitable for racing or high-performance driving. This mode is not recommended for daily driving situations.
Each mode has a different signal strength that adjusts the throttle response of your vehicle. You can switch between modes at any time to match your driving conditions and preferences, allowing you to customize your driving experience to suit your needs.
To go into ECO mode, you need to press and hold the yellow program button for 3 seconds. This is a safety feature meant to keep you from accidentally cycling into a mode with a drastically slower response.
The (-) and (+) buttons on the Pedal Commander device are used to adjust the sensitivity of the throttle response within the selected mode. The (-) button reduces the sensitivity, while the (+) button increases it..
For example, if you are in Sport mode and want to fine-tune the throttle response to better suit your driving style, you can press the (-) button to reduce the sensitivity of the throttle response. This will make the vehicle's acceleration less sensitive to slight movements of the accelerator pedal. Alternatively, if you want a more responsive and sporty feel, press the (+) button to increase the sensitivity of the throttle response
The (-) and (+) buttons are useful for fine-tuning the Pedal Commander settings to suit your personal driving preferences and the conditions you're driving in. It's important to note that changes to the sensitivity settings may affect the fuel economy of the vehicle, so it's recommended to find the right balance between performance and fuel efficiency that works best for your needs.
To turn the Pedal Commander off, use the yellow program button to cycle through the modes. It should go from City, to Sport, to Sport+, and then to all the LED lights being off. When all the lights are off, Pedal Commander is off and you are back to your vehicle's stock throttle response.
The Pedal Commander has a memory function that saves your last selected mode, and it will automatically return to that mode the next time you start your vehicle. This means you don't need to re-select your preferred mode each time you start your vehicle.
You do not need to worry about turning the Pedal Commander off manually. The Pedal Commander unit will automatically shut off when the ECU in your vehicle goes to "sleep," which is usually 5 minutes after you shut off the engine.
