Graham Cahill from 4WD Action gives you the lowdown. IDRIVE WindBooster Electronic Throttle Controller. Suitable for all Jeep Grand Cherokee WK 2 Series, 2011 - 2019.Fits all Variants, Diesel 3lt 6 Cyl, Petrol 3.6lt V6, 5.7lt V8, 6.2lt Supercharged V8 & 6.4lt V8, 4WD Wagon including SRT & Trackhawk. The iDRIVE is also designed to work in conjunction with a custom tune/chip, so even if you decide to get a tune or chip youll only be getting even more out of it! Rather than a traditional accelerator cable, many modern vehicles use "fly by wire" throttle technology.
This system relies on a sensor that measures the pedal pressure and position which then sends a signal to the vehicle's engine computer which converts to acceleration. Most fly by wire systems have a noticeable delay. IDRIVE allows you to tune the signal from the accelerator pedal with multiple inbuilt settings to ensure you find a setting to perfectly suit your driving style. Plug and play fitment - fits in minutes. No wiring required - absolutely anyone can install it.Reduces response time between accelerator and throttle. 3 modes (Economy, Power, Auto) - 9 levels to set in Economy and Power modes. Auto mode adapts to your driving style on the fly - enjoy power on demand. Improved throttle response for everyday use. IDRIVE includes an automatic control function that automatically changes the level of throttle performance based on pedal pressure. So, if you're in traffic and accelerating gently, the iDRIVE will automatically select setting 1.
If you are accelerating hard to overtake, towing a heavy trailer, or just having fun the iDRIVE will automatically select 9 for you. The result is the smoothest and most intelligent aftermarket control module on the market. IDRIVE allows you to tune the signal from the accelerator pedal with multiple inbuilt settings to ensure you find the perfect setting for your driving style. Eco Mode: ECO Mode is designed for fuel economy by reducing the accelerator response time. Also handy for when you are on offroad trails and looking for a bit more throttle control when crawling.
Ultimate Mode: Ultimate Mode offers 9 sensitivity levels; this allows the driver to tune the controller to the desired level of sensitivity. Choose level 9 and grip the steering wheel tight or hit level 1 for a gentle smooth acceleration. AC Mode: Automatic Control Mode automatically selects the sensitivity level based on pedal pressure.If you are in traffic and accelerating gently the iDRIVE will automatically choose a reduced level of throttle response. If you accelerate hard for overtaking or even just for fun the iDRIVE will choose a mode with an increased level of throttle response. Automatic Control mode is what makes iDRIVE the most intelligent throttle controller on the market.

3M surface wipe to ensure a perfectly clean surface to mount your iDRIVE wherever you like. We supply everything you need to fit this part to your car, so you don't have to waste your time chasing up extra components. Nothing else is required for a complete installation. The iDRIVE Throttle Controller modifies the voltage signal from the fly by wire pedal assembly to allow you to tune the response from your accelerator pedal. Additionally, the iDRIVE allows you to greatly reduce the dead zone from when you initially depress the pedal, commonly referred to as throttle lag.The iDRIVE does not plug into the OBDII port. The iDRIVE plugs directly into your pedal command module and can generally be installed in as little as 5 minutes. Does iDRIVE increase power output? No, iDRIVE Throttle Controller does not increase power output. The iDRIVE has no control over fuel mapping, air to fuel ratio or injection timing. The iDRIVE simply changes the way your throttle responds, eliminating any lags or delays in the throttle system and sharpening response. It essentially gets rid of the feeling that theres a big wet sponge sitting underneath the accelerator pedal of most modern cars with the fly by wire system.
Is iDRIVE suitable for Towing? The iDRIVE Throttle Controller is very useful for towing as it helps get your vehicle up to speed from a standing start while using less pedal effort, placing less strain on your motor and using less fuel. Especially handy around town where there is a lot of stopping and starting. Is iDRIVE hard to install? The iDRIVE Throttle Controller can be installed in under 2 minutes with no tools or technical knowledge required in the vast majority of vehicles.Every unit comes with a clear set of instructions that take you through a step by step installation. The iDRIVE Throttle Controller has been designed with plug and play installation as the ultimate goal, so anyone, anywhere can reap the benefits of an iDRIVE in their vehicle. Is iDRIVE universal or vehicle specific? Although every iDRIVE Throttle Controller shares the same main hardware, each iDRIVE is specifically programmed to each vehicle, meaning they are not transferable across makes and models. Please check our listings for the makes/models we can supply an iDRIVE for. What transmission does the iDRIVE work with? IDRIVE Throttle Controller is suited to both manual and automatic transmissions. Is iDRIVE suitable for diesel or petrol vehicles? The iDRIVE Throttle Controller can be used on both naturally aspirated and forced induction Petrol and Diesel engines.
Can't I just press the accelerator down faster to replicate the same response? IDRIVE Throttle Controller works in 2 ways. When you first depress the pedal there is what is referred to as a dead zone where there is very little response. No matter how hard or fast you hit the pedal you can't overcome this.
The iDRIVE converts this signal to action, greatly reducing this dead zone. The second part is opening the throttle earlier in the pedal stroke, in theory, you might be able to replicate this by pressing the pedal faster and harder, but in practice, you can't.
Will iDRIVE work with other modifications? Aftermarket Cruise Control: Yes, we have not seen an aftermarket cruise control that won't work with an iDRIVE including units that plug directly into the fly by wire system. ECU Tune / Re-flash: Yes, the iDRIVE Throttle Controller can still be used after an ECU tune/reflash. In most instances, tuners don't change throttle parameters. Even when throttle parameters are changed the adjustability of throttle response that the iDRIVE provides can still be quite useful.
Power Chips / Exhaust: Yes, Power chips and upgraded exhaust system work on a different part of the car so an iDRIVE will only complement the positive effects of chips and exhausts. IDRIVE Australia has performed extensive testing to ensure a correctly fitted iDRIVE will not damage your vehicle. The same cannot be said with a custom tune or chip, which is why we here at Tuff Car Parts much prefer theiDRIVE for the performance gains it delivers - and at a fraction of the cost. My iDRIVE doesn't turn off? IDRIVE throttle controllers don't require their own power source, making installation a breeze.They rely on power from the accelerator pedal. In many vehicles, when power to the ignition is cut many accessories take some time to power down.
You may find it can take 30 seconds before your iDRIVE turns off. It may also turn off during periods of inactivity such as when cruise control is in operation.
Simply touching the accelerator will instantly turn it on. IDRIVE Australia warrants the iDRIVE Throttle Controller against performance deficiencies (on standard engines in good working order), defects in material and poor workmanship under normal use for the lifetime of its use to the original owner. IDRIVE Australia, at its discretion, shall adjust, repair or replace the defective iDRIVE Throttle Controller component/s as necessary.Unplug the connector plugged into the accelerator pedal assembly. Plug the iDRIVE connector into the vehicles accelerator pedal. Be cautious not to force into position as this may result in bent pins in the plug. IDRIVE connector should fit easily into position.
Although in most cases removing the accelerator pedal from the firewall is not required, this may be required for easier fitment. Re-fit connector into the iDRIVE. Using cable ties supplied, securely mount the iDRIVE cable in a position that will not affect the operation of the pedals. Mount the control module on the dash in a position that is easy to access.You may want to check the position at night to ensure the display doesnt affect night driving.
