Default MDS off...

Got my bullydog installed and good to go, and thought I turned MDS off but in the system settings display it says its still on. Any idea how to find it again so I can turn it off?

What leads you to believe the MDS is on ?

Do you have a light or something that you installed ?

The Rams that i have seen only have a light for Fuel Saver or ECO
there is no light for the MDS to say whether it is On or OFF

I always assumed the ECO light meant that the MDS was engaged..

No, they are two separate entities.

I guess the transition is seemless to me since I cant feel it, other then the shuttering some people feel is there a way to feel the MDS?

Its possible to run on 4 cylinder and not be economical? lol, thats ironic

Exactly how I thought. I assumed ECO in the dash was indicating MDS was on. Maybe my minds playing tricks on me but I thought it was still on.

How do I find the MDS option in the bullydog once more?
Other than that and the system NOT turning off with the truck i love it

Yeah worth it in my eyes. Does give it more giddyup and throttle response, hits harder putting you in the seat when it shifts too.
