Default Resetting throttle response?

I remember reading on here about those that were asking about throttle response and why some seemed more peppy off the line than others.

I believe the fix, or at least a suggestion was to fully depress the throttle all the way to the floor slowly then release slowly?

Just curious who has all done this, and curious if it worked or not?
Also, do you put the key on at the ACC setting or the RUN setting (but not running of course)

Thanks

I was curious about this and did a search; it was from 2012 and the guy said to turn key to on position without starting engine and let it cycle through everything, slowly press gas pedal down fully for 3-5 seconds and slowly bring back up. Turn key off and it's suppose to reset. It worked for him and another guy but the other few that tried it ,didn't sound like it worked.

Thanks, guess I'll have to try it and see if it works?

The reason I asked was because our 4.7 Ram at work is a lot more sensitive than what my 5.7 is, and my bud with also a 13 Ram with a Hemi says his is just like our work truck.

I haven't driven his to compare, but I have no reason to not believe him.

Was hoping the Ram Tech guy from Uxbridge would reply to this thread as I am sure he would know for sure? (Sorry, forgot his name)

I did it too and I think it made it more sensitive, but I'm honestly not sure.

Irv, it works. I do this on occasion as I tend to drive like someone's grandma most of the time. The computer learns this, and adjusts accordingly. Hope this helps, signed: Grandma Paul. LOL!!

I did it to my 4.7L and it feels like a different truck. It can't hurt to try it.

So this technique is used to get a better throttle response?

I'll try it tonight on mine, its a little sluggish off the line.

Update:

Nothing changed. I tried (I have the push button start, don't know if it changes anything):

1. Run position
2. Depress gas pedal and let off (5 secs)
3. Off position

And

1. Run position
2. Depress gas pedal and left off (10 secs)
3. Off position

I drove around the block and tried the procedure a couple of different ways and nothing. It was raining all night, the truck barely chirps the tires with the traction control off. When is hemifever coming out with a tune already? lol

Did you let the cluster and dash finish cycling through all it stuff before you pressed the gas.

I don't know if this little cycle thing works but I doubt it. If you want any sort of reset just disconnect your battery for a few minutes. This will erase all of the stored driving habits the computer has and it will start over again.

I know that will make the truck feel very different. Nothing crazy...just different.
