AEV Procal used for high idle on a cold morning.

Works awesome!

This morning I took my AEV procal and used it for a high idle on the jeep to warm it up quicker. Dang thing worked.

Thought about it last night while getting off work. I happened to remember you could set it up for an adjustable high idle for winching.... thought to myself, why not for a cold morning and warm up. Only took me 4-5 years to think of it.

I ran it on the second click on the dimmer switch (from all interior lights off) which put the rpmís at 1k. Each click up takes the rpmís up about 200.

Now, I just have to remember it.

Just throwing it out there.

I've thought about using my Procal for a slightly higher idle while rock-crawling.. With a manual transmission, my pregnant-cow of a JKU stalls easily crawling over rocks and another 200 or so RPM might help..
You have given me the courage to try it!

EDIT: Nevermind..
Just read the instructions and to use Extended Idle Mode the e-brake must be on.. that would make driving difficult.. oh-well...

True that.

Quick thought... But for a possible work around, you could install a switch in the P-brake wiring so it would lie to the system to say itís on when itís not.

Might work, might not.

Edit: also the Procal will kinda do a reset on rpmís about every 5 min. I did not time it. Kinda runs at a higher rpm, then drops out for a second or two. Then revís back up and stays till there for the next 5 min. Or so.

I use OBD Jscan and a bluetooth adapter for the same thing. Lets you set your idle at a little higher RPM...comes in handy if you need it.

I have never liked high rpms on a cold engine. Not something i would do. My rig always warms up plenty fast at regular idle.

Understandable. When I do this, Iím only spinning at 1k. That said, my office is so close to my house. That my T-stat does even open on a normal start and go. Yes, the trip is that short.
