Its interesting but cars today sense weight and they choose the best gear for the engine. Better to get a lower gear than make engine work harder, so what you assume is a extended non-shift is actually by design, it's automatic.. it can handle it. The shift points are controlled by the PCM.Looking for something to fix my laggy throttle response. Pac only has 2 modes L for towing which hold the shift way too long for any real use. And the default ECO mode which we all know. I will update you next week after it arrives. The code SEMA10 will get you $33 off. Can't wait!
According to the site you can save up to 20% in gas, have you noticed increased MPG?It's been a week with the Pedal Commander and I have to say it changes the driving experience. Much easier to accelerate from a stop and highway driving. The kick downs are immediate and I have passing power. I use much less throttle than before. I have settled on City setting no additional + settings. I believe City was the default out of the box. I have the controller run the glove box.
I have only had it for 1 tank so far. The gas increase or decrease to me was not a deciding factor for getting it. Throttle response was the number 1 reason. I find the gas pedal needs much less input to get going and highway driving sometimes feels like I have no throttle applied to keep steady speed. With the higher settings Sport and Sport + it seems like the throttle can get away from you. Goose the throttle and pulls more than I want it to. This could be a problem in stop and go traffic for me.According to the site you can save up to 20% in gas, have you noticed increased MPG?

Yes, PC07 is the right Pedal Commander for the Pacifica.I had a quick look at the PC HP and
I find out that the PC07 is the right Commander for the Pacifica
Is ths right??
Did you get it installed? How is it working for you?Thank you for the detailed updates! Ordered the Pedal Commander on sunday, and its on its way. The throttle delay is nerve wracking with the stock setup. I tried to pull out quick and merge into traffic (Atlanta metro traffic SUCKS in case you didnt know), but i had to almost floor the pedal to get it to take off. Our 08 T&C was a drive by wire setup on the 4.0, but had a much better initial launch. Still doesnt beat the feel of an actual wired pedal, but those days are gone.
I'm looking forward to getting it installed, and fingers crossed, it will help raise the satisfaction levels with performance for my wife, the primary driver.
The instructions for pedal commander say to turn off the vehicle and let it sit for at least 5 minutes with the key fob far away to let the electronics shut down completely so it does not turn on the engine light. When you installed it did you leave the driver's door open or closed? I am wondering if you leave the door closed, let it sit for 5+ min and then you open it so you can get to the pedal, won't it wake up all the electronics?5 months with the Pedal Commander and here is my update:
I have the settings at the default which is City. My first impression and still current impression is the throttle response is immediate. I have adjusted the way I apply throttle especially from a stop. Very little pedal movement and slow throttle gets the van moving. I rarely hit full throttle anymore. The response while highway driving use to be 3 second delay between accelerating and the van downshifting. Now I'd say it's 1 sec delay with much improved acceleration. Overall transmission shifting has improved in downshifts and upshifting speed. Turning off the Pedal Commander shows the difference immediately. I had my brother over and he drove the van on a short 30 mile trip. He was shocked how responsive the throttle was and it took him a few tries to get use to it. He has a better impression of the Pac now. After 6 more hours in the van he was very impressed with the ride and overall feel.
I got it on Friday last week, because I had a problem with the German customs.Did you get it installed? How is it working for you?
