"Engine idle speed options (Improves winch performance and battery charging capabilities by temporarily increasing engine idle RPM)"

Can somebody explain how this works? How does it temporarily do this? Do we have to plug the module done every time we use the winch? How does it know we are winching?

You do have to plug it in every time you want to use this feature.

With the engine running you plug it in then rotate the light dimmer until you get the RPM you want/need.

When you take it out the engine RPM returns to normal.

It doesn’t know you are winching - it simply raises the engine RPM.

I have a ProCal, and have winched on a number of occasions, and I usually have someone sitting in the drivers seat and ask them to just rev the engine a bit when I have the winch on.

I do know someone who uses it with his PowerPlant when he is airing up. I just leave the engine running at idle.

Is it a worthwhile upgrade?

I bought it to re-calibrate my speedo after I got bigger tires, then again after I got gears. I also use it to adjust my tire pressure sensor warning.

My dealer said they recommend it and said it will not affect my warrantee. I actually bought it from them.

I don’t (currently) want a “tuner” type module. My performance is fine with my setup and my dealer doesn’t like them. I’ve read that you can reset you Jeep back to stock after using a programmer, and read that you can’t, but for me it doesn’t matter because the power I have with my setup is fine.

So for me the ProCal is perfect - I have my tire size, tire pressure, and gears setup perfectly (as far as the computers are concerned).

No problem. Maybe I'll see you out on the trail some time.
