    What about turning off the auto start / stop?

    I run through Athabasca and Wabasca sometimes so not far from you, next time I'm out that way I'll give you a heads up. Mostly I spend my time between Edmonton and Cold Lake. Truck is in Edmonton right now getting Suntek clear wrap and matte wrap to protect from rocks.

    That would be sweet. Im trying to get the dealer here to do it, but its not looking good. Im not mobile right now, but I would love to get it done. Mine goes in friday for tire/rims/tint/suntek/steps and other stuff. So thats the last mod i need.

    Not possible

    The only way is to jump the wires behind the dash if you always want it off

    It also goes away if you turn on sport mode

    So no chance of changing the default to sport mode? sorry if this has already been asked.

    Just read the first page of that link. But there's 578 pages. Ain't nobody got time for that. Basically, in a nut shell, and lay mans terms, simplified, broken down, it means we can "jail break" our trucks and add small features like the ones listed previously. But you'll need what?

    A way to tap into your truck through the OBD II port
    The account through FORScan
    The actual software "FORScan"?

    Those items and some technical knowhow to see what you're looking for and is that really it?

    I'd like to have heated steering wheel and seats to stay on after remote start. What happens is as soon as you get in and push the start button the they both turn off.

    Also, I'd like them both to come on when I start the vehicle next time. If I want them off I'll shut them down myself.

    Are our mirrors considered tow mirrors, and require the pin swap for the folding mirror/ key Fob option? can't seem to get that Forscan option to work

    No, no wire switching needed.

    This is exactly how my '17 Rebel is programmed--definitely smarter than my '16 Sierra Denali, which is apparently same behavior as the '17 Raptor.
