Auto-kill the ECO button on the 2014s?

Post by lewist57 » 2014 Sep 10 10:07

Most if not all of the 2014 Chrysler products with the 8 speed transmissions have an ECO button that by default is on upon start up. It tells the transmission to use higher gears at low speed to achieve better EPA ratings, but provides a very sluggish ride. Of course, the driver can press the button off at any time. However, this seems to me to be a perfect application of determining which message is equal to "turn the ECO off" and having the CAN interface setup to automatically turn this off on start up (with the user option to turn it back on).

Is it really this simple, or am I missing something?
