How fast is your idle? I barely move in reverse, usually have to bump the go pedal to get it moving. For me it's common to be able to idle and not move(without brakes) or creep along.Every time I start up the darn thing idles fast. When I put it in reverse to back out of the garage the darn thing takes off so fast I have to slam on the brakes or immediately switch to neutral to idle out of the garage and coast a bit.
This sounds odd... i don't notice issues with high idle and gear engagement. In fact, as soon as i rotate the knob, the idle drops. I don't use GDE's high idle either.WELCOME - First post!
Curious if you want a continuous high idle or just the high idle you get when starting up cold.
I have GDE but do not have their high idle option. Every time I start up the darn thing idles fast. When I put it in reverse to back out of the garage the darn thing takes off so fast I have to slam on the brakes or immediately switch to neutral to idle out of the garage and coast a bit. To me the high idle is a pain. Bet I can go 5-10 mph on the flat until that idle finally drops down.
To me the high idle is not wanted. Curious as to why you want it.
My truck is "key start" and GDE. The idle is slightly higher at first cold start and as soon as you put it in gear it drops. I would say 100-200 rpm nothing like the captains description above? I don't have the high idle option either. I would also be happy if it would idle at warm idle speed right off the bat.Capt's Post didn't make sense to me either, but my ED had remote start so I always started it and let it idle for several minutes. Capt's truck is key start ,so maybe that's the difference in high idling? VS remote start? Just guessing
The switch you want was mentioned in post # 2: http://www.ram1500diesel.com/forum/ram-1500-diesel-general-discussion/38633-high-idle.html#post573561It would be great to have a high idle switch! Example when driving all night in winter -5F and at 2am I stop for a 4 hour nap. It would be great to flip the high idle switch and idle at 1100 or 1200 rpm during the long idle time.
