I have it in my LMM are you sure you don't have it? I am in the cold climates too. I saw last year -50C for a few days and used it.

What trim is your truck?

X2, you can select to have it enabled/disabled in the DIC.

If you just have a horn on your steering like i do, I know you can do a brake pedal code when the key is in the run position but not started...Just hold the gas peddle to the floor and pumping the brake's three time's then let off the go peddle. Pretty sure this is the code but it's been since last winter since i've messed with it, maybe someone else can comfirm this for us.

On the LMM's the DIC buttons are on the dash and there's less options compared to the classics There's only radio and cruise control buttons on the steering wheel now.

there is less options compared to the 2003-2004 classics.

2005-2007 classics have the same paired down/gypped option set as the LMM's. (no business/personal trip, no instant fuel econ, etc...)

Mine shows average fuel economy. If you want instant, just reset it!

Is there anywhere in EFI to set the cold weather idle rpm and what temp it comes on for the LBZ like on the LB7/LLY?

My lb7 don't have high idle. I have the steering wheel controls. I looked through all the settings on the DIC and didn't see anything about high idle. But then again, my truck IS from Texas. anyway to do this without going to the dealer and spending money to have it enabled? I'm broke at the moment.

There is elevated idle (in the DIC) apperantly GM got rid of it in cold climates because it locks the T/C and can fry trannys in extreme cold due to innsufficent fluid flow.
So madmaxx61 id be carfull under -30 *C with the elevated.

There is also a fast idle "factory" option on the LMM's, e-brake on cruise on use set and resume to raise and lower the rpm it has to be equipped from the factory

Im on the same OS as a friend who has both options so its not the OS its some where else in the ECM or maybe the BCM IDK

Dale, from what I've been told we can't change any settings for the high idle. I don't think GM got rid of the high idle in cold climates. I know on my truck they went to a less aggressive high idle so they say, which doesn't load the trans as hard, or something like that.

My truck hasn't been at the dealer in a year or so. I try to avoid them, plus my warranty is over anyway. I think they did my trans programming in the winter of 2007 2008.

why not just use the PTO function in the ECM? press the cruise control buttons and it raises engine RPM, as long as its in park...

nobody makes an aftermarket throttle controller for our trucks unless its some ghetto rigged mechanical setup that actually presses down on the pedal....which would add wayyyy more complication and cost than is necessary.
