Pedal Commander Installation Guide

Install Your Jeep JK Pedal Commander

Step 1

Before an install, check out the contents of the package – make sure that all of the parts are present. The Pedal Commander comes in a nice compact box with a clear top. When you open the box you’ll see the small instruction guide right next to the Bluetooth Pedal Commander module, as well as the wiring harness. There’s a velcro/sticker mounting pad, so you can attach the module where it is convenient, and an alcohol pad to clean the area on your vehicle before attaching.


Step 2

The instructions recommend that you keep your key fob at least 35 feet away from the module for at least 10 minutes prior to the install. Likewise, it is recommended that you keep your Jeep's drivers side door open for 5-10 minutes prior to installation.


Step 3

Decide where it will be most convenient to attach the module. My recommendation is to put it in the area below the ignition and above the gas pedal. I also advise you to run the wiring for the Pedal Commander down through the neck of the steering wheel, which opens up under the drivers-side dash. This allows you to hide the wiring, as well as mount it in an inconspicuous but easy to access area.


Step 4

Next, locate the gas pedal cable which lives just above the gas pedal, up and under the dash. To disconnect it you’ll need to release the tab that attaches it to the connector. You’ll find male and female attachments to the gas pedal cable; take the male end of the pedal commander and insert it into the female attachment of the gas pedal cable. Then take the female end of the Pedal Commander and reinsert it into the gas pedal. Viola! It’s connected.


Step 5

Now, it’s time to mount the Pedal Commander module to your truck. Clean the area on the Jeep where you’ll be mounting your Pedal Commander module with the alcohol pad.

Peel off one side of the mount sticker and attach it to the back of the module, then peel the other side off the mounting sticker. Now mount it where it is easy to see and change modes while driving, but where it‘s also out of the way. Tuck the wires up under the dash using the provided zip ties. Ensure you are left with no loose wiring.

Step 6

Now the fun part! Test it out. The Pedal Commander will start up when you start your engine. Not only does it have modes for:

  • City 
  • Sport
  • Sport+
  • Economy mode 
Eco ModeCity Mode
Sport ModeSport+ Mode

Each setting also has a sensitivity range from -4 to +4, giving you 9 settings in each mode. This gives you the ability to really dial in the responsiveness and feel you desire!

When you start your truck, it will automatically be (most likely) in city mode, sensitivity level +1. It is super responsive compared to what you are used to with your stock throttle response and you’ll feel an instant difference! The acceleration capabilities are off the charts in sport mode, and sport+, allowing you greater control of your vehicle and its movements.

Economy mode doesn’t get as much credit as it should. I once averaged 20mpg in economy mode on the highway leaving from Frederick, Maryland to Virginia Beach, Virginia. Economy mode saves you mpg’s by having an even less throttle response time than stock.

Important Note:

One last important thing – to change modes, ensure your foot is not on the accelerator while attempting to change modes. You can change modes while moving, but not while your foot is on the accelerator. It’s as easy as that!
