    Yeah. Hit the switch and the LED lights up on it and stays in that position till I push it again. At which point I would need to restart to go back to normal.

    If you shut it off and restart it do you still have to remember to push it the second time?

    Mines been in the off position since I installed it last year. I had an intermittent sensor/wire issue and my TC used to come on when pulling out from a stop. After getting nearly run over too many times to count because the fucker starts that killing the power nonsense I finally did this. I can't see myself ever switching it back on again. I welcome the warning lights staying on. Means I never have to deal with that shit ever again.

    Yeah. But as Jerry has pointed out no real harm. I don't like lights on my dash so I'll try to keep it off unless needed. Super easy to do though except figuring out which way to wire the LED's in the switch but really that wasn't hard either. Took me all of 30 minutes with soldering and playing with the wires to get done.

    So just get a toggle switch?

    Toggle works just fine. I just throw crap around my console and just didn’t want to hitting it by mistake. You could also get a temporary push button switch like I have that would just reset them when you restart. Endless options.

    I'm sure hoping to get me me done while I'm putting the rest of the goodies on.

    I've drove for years without the nanny state trying to "help" me. Driving the mountain roads out here if you corner a bit on the aggressive side, it shuts you down. I've never yet had it come on and be useful, it is always a pain in the ass.

    I hear you. Just don’t forget while you have things torn apart like I did and have to dig back in.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
