Ok so I had a weird experience this morning with the Pulsar:
I parked my truck and it was on a slight incline so I put on the parking brake on. When I took it off and drive away I had lost my Performance MDS off mode. I pulled over and installed it back again but that’s kinda odd?????? Anyone?

Drove the truck this morning. First time in the dark with the Pulsar. I have no back lighting on my interior controls. Dash works. Dimmer doesnt work for dash. No running lights. Headlights, brakes and turn signals work. I find this weird. Cycled the truck a few times with no change. Gonna pull the negative cable again to try that. If not Ill make a call and pull it off. This sux.

Well now that I have light and can see, I had my truck aligned yesterday and the tech must have shut all my switches completely off. Didnt realize the headlight switch when turned completely off turn off backlighting and tail lights. New to me. Feel like an idiot lol. I leave the headlight switch on auto so it didnt even dawn on me. But thats all it was.

I haven't got my Truck completely figured out yet either. There's a lot to learn. I probably would have been in the same Boat. What I do like about our light setup. Is you can turn the switch back one position. And you can turn your Brights on and off yourself. Nice when your out in the middle of nowhere ,and there's light from the side . Your lights stay on bright. But you have to flip them back to auto. When shut the Truck off. Or your lights stay on, and you get a chime when you open the door.

Ok so I had the same thing happen today that did yesterday with the eco light coming on and the gear selection not showing ( for those that don’t know, when you have MDS off it automatically sets your gear selector at 8 or 6, whatever speed transmission you have - still runs through the gears but that’s a tell to know MDS is off) and I could hear the engine kick down to 4 cylinders. :confused:
I’m actually on hold with Edge Pulsar as I type this. Gonna get this figured out I hope.

This is my first non Toyota rig so Im still learning. Hopefully you get it figured out. Mine has been working great except for my ignorance lol. Talking about the MDS, I have my pulsar set to stock with mds off. Every once in a while it does feel like it kicks in and when you hit the pedal it feels like it goes away like normal but Im not having any issues with the eco light turning on or the gear selection not going away. So it could be just me not sure. Definitely post up what Edge has to say, I am curious.

:emotions34:Finally got off the phone with them. The guy who answered said that the “eco” light coming on is a known thing. Not to worry about it (it does say that in the manual also). He wasn’t sure about the gear selection display going away so he put me on hold and asked a Master Tech. He said that is NOT an issue, that they’ve discovered it does that once in awhile.
Okay......... I’m going to keep an eye and ear out for it for awhile and see just how often this occurs. Not exactly the answer I was wanting but.........
