      Review & Installation Video

      Hey, guys. Today, we're going to be taking a look at and installing the Pedal Commander Bluetooth throttle response controller for all 2011 to 2018 Mustangs. You're gonna wanna be checking this out if you're looking for a way to improve your drive-by-wire throttle response in your car, without having to purchase a custom tune or go with a tuner. It plugs right in behind your accelerator pedal and it's gonna improve your throttle response. The install will be a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter and this costs about $330.So with drive-by-wire, there's a little bit of delay between the time that you hit the pedal and the time that the car actually moves. This is just because of the way that drive-by-wire works. It's not something that you can change by the way you drive. Basically what happens is you hit the accelerator, a signal is then sent to the ECU, which then sends another signal up to the actuator that's controlling the throttle body which opens and closes the throttle body and that's the delay that you guys sometimes notice. The Pedal Commander here eliminates that delay. It plugs right in behind the accelerator and it gives you a crisp and clean throttle response. It's a great way to change your throttle response and the driving characteristics of the car without having to purchase a tune or go with a custom tune. The Pedal Commander will change that for you. It's gonna give you a nice clean and crisp throttle response. It's a good option if you guys aren't ready for a tuner or a custom tune yet. It doesn't actually add any horsepower, torque, or change anything in the ECU. It's just gonna change your throttle response and the driving characteristics of the car.All right, guys, we're ready to get the install started. So the most difficult part if you wanna call it difficult is probably gonna be reaching the connection behind the accelerator pedal. It's just a matter of getting your arm in that tight space. What I'm gonna do is I'm actually gonna run the wire down right here between the steering column and the dashboard. You guys can do it any way that you'd like to. One thing I will say is just make sure that you don't have a whole lot of wire hanging. You wanna make sure that it's zip-tied up nice and clean and stays in place. All right so we're actually gonna squeeze this down through here. All right so now what we're gonna do is we're gonna reach up behind the accelerator, actually at the very top of the pedal. We are going to release this clip up here and we'll plug our Pedal Commander in. So there is a locking red tab on here. We'll pop the red tab off, and then disconnect the connection. All right, now we'll plug the Pedal Commander in. And make sure we clip the red tab down.All right guys, now we will plug in the other end of the Pedal Commander harness to the harness that we unplugged from behind the accelerator. Once again, locking tab. Make sure we lock that tab. Now that we have this thing plugged in, it's time to mount it. You can mount it anywhere you like. We're gonna mount it right here on the dash. Just know that there is a little backing on the backside of this velcro to peel off. So we'll mount it to the dashboard once we do that. And if you guys ever wanna remove the Pedal Commander, you guys can see how the velcro works here. So we can remove it, do what we need to with it, and then put it right back on the velcro and it'll stay in place. Once again, you do wanna make sure that you zip tie this wire up and out of the way.All right, so now that we have the Pedal Commander all installed, let's talk about some of the features and how this actually works. So you guys can see that you have four modes here. You have eco, city, sport, and sport plus. So city is gonna be the default for the Pedal Commander and that's great for everyday driving. Your sport mode is gonna be for more spirited driving. And then sport plus for race and track situations. Eco is really gonna be for things like bad weather conditions, when you need traction, maybe offroading, or if you're really concerned about fuel economy.So within these four settings, you also have sensitivity settings as well. You guys can increase or decrease the sensitivity. So we're gonna go ahead and turn this on. You can see right now we're in eco. All we have to do is press this button here and we'll switch over to city. You guys can see by the light which mode we're in. Now we're in sport. Now we're in sport plus. If we press and hold this button, all of the lights are gonna go off and this means that you're in stock mode. If you wanna turn it back on, just hit the power button back on. If you guys wanna increase the sensitivity of the throttle in the eco mode or any mode that you happen to be in, you're just gonna hit the plus button. Once again, you have lights down here so you can see where you're at. If you guys wanna decrease, you'll hit the decrease button.One cool new thing about the Pedal Commander is that this is Bluetooth compatible and that's gonna make it even easier to access for you. And just so you guys know, you can stack this with a tune or another programmer, which means that if you're ever looking to get a custom tune or use a programmer in the future, you don't have to uninstall the Pedal Commander. All right, guys, that's gonna wrap up this review and install. Keep in mind that you can always check this out more online, right here at americanmuscle.com.

      Description

      Eliminates Delay. The 2011-2020 Ford Mustangs are all notorious for delayed throttle response. That's where the Pedal Commander Bluetooth Throttle Response Controller comes in. Ford uses a drive-by-wire system that monitors the position of the gas pedal to control the throttle electronically, similar to a dimmer switch. The problem with this setup is that the signal from the pedal has to first be sent the ECU, which in turn then sends the signal to the actuator motor that controls the throttle body itself. This delay is most noticeable when trying to speed up to merge with fast moving traffic or pass a slower moving car. However, the Pedal Commander Bluetooth Throttle Response Controller will eliminate the delayed throttle response, and you change settings from your smart device, instead of bending over and doing in your Mustang.

      Four Adjustable Control Modes. Unlike other throttle control devices that are either on or off, the Pedal Commander comes with four preset control modes for Eco, City, Sport and Sport Plus driving applications. Best of all each mode has 8 different levels of sensitivity, this will allow you to personally adjust each mode to your own personal driving style and needs. It can be done manually on the Commander, or you can do all of that from your smart device, without having to bend over and physically touch the Pedal Commander.

      Easy Plug & Play Installation. The Pedal Commander Throttle Response Controller connects directly into the stock throttle position sensor found on the drive-by-wire gas pedal using an OEM style plug and play connector with no permanent modifications required. The Pedal Commander is 100% reversible making it warranty friendly.

      2-Year Product Warranty. Pedal Commander manufactures their Bluetooth Throttle Response Controller to the highest quality and standards with CE and TUV Certification. However in the event you do receive a defective or malfunctioning device, Pedal Commander will replace it free of charge within 2 years of the original purchase date.

      Compatible with Aftermarket Programmers. The Pedal Commander Bluetooth Throttle Response Controller can be used in conjunction with common aftermarket OBD-II programmers and/or monitors such as: SCT, Diablosport, Hypertech, Superchips, Bully Dog, and Edge. If your vehicle has a custom tune, it is not recommended to use the Pedal Commander Throttle Response Controller. A custom tune can improve the throttle response.

      Application.
      The Pedal Commander Bluetooth Throttle Response Controller is designed for use on all 2011-2020 Mustangs including the V6, EcoBoost, GT, BOSS, Shelby GT500 and Shelby GT350 models.

        Very Responsive throttle...

        My Shelby GT350 seemed to have a slight "pedal pause" when you give it throttle. It really wasn't a huge deal but I felt it should be more responsive. I installed the pedal commander and really did it with a open mind not expecting a huge difference. Well this is amazing!! Its so responsive and has a crisp throttle response that I am extremely happy with this purchase. note: Its not going to give you more power but it will enhance your existing power. Buy one! I have no regrets.

        Does not remove lag

        If you are looking for something that will remove the response lag in your pedal, this is not your puppy. If however you are looking for something that will make your pedal respond quicker after the initial lag this works very well. You can adjust it so the power comes on a little at a time or all at once. Many different ways to make adjustments to make your pedal feel differently. I tested this device on a tree at the drag strip just to see if it would reduce the lag at the first movement of the pedal, it doesnt. That being said, after that first bit of delay, it makes a Huge difference. Unfortunately this is not a delay box and will not remove the lag out of the pedal.

        No longer a skeptic.

        This helps with the throttle much more than I imagined, more noticable than a throttlebody. No HP gains but you lose the lag on WOT which can help in a race and possibly on your 60' for the 1/4. Good product.

        Happy with this mod!

        This product enables the driver to find the sweet spot for throttle response and gear changes. Combined with the different factory options, normal, sport and track, Pedal Commander gives the driver a lot of options for their particular driving style and how they want the car to perform.

        Wake up the Throttle

        As everyone does I did weeks of research on the Pedal Commander spoke with a few people that have it and some that did research as well. Purchased and installation was a breeze maybe 10 minutes tops.. and WOW ! I didnt think the throttle response would be that significant when in sport and sport if you really want to see what your mustang has before all the bolt on's grab this first as this is a must

      5 Top Rated Questions

      If i have a tune that improved throttle response already, would I still benefit from this?

      • We would not recommend using both a tune and throttle response controller as they would essentially be doing the same thing, although, the tuner with a custom tune would be more beneficial.

      Helpful (5)

      In the video you guys say it can be stacked with a custom tuner but in the description for the pedal commander it says not recommended with other tunes. So is it safe or not is my only question? Thank you guys!

      • The Pedal Commander Bluetooth Throttle Response Controller can be used in conjunction with a custom tune on your Mustang.

      I have a 2015 mustang GT and recently installed the Ford Performance Power Pack 2. Will the pedal commander benefit the car in any way?

      • From my understanding, it will not. Both will help increase the overall throttle response of the vehicle.

      Helpful (3)

      Does it come on automatically upon ignition to my preferred setting? Or do I have to turn it on manually everytime I want to use the controller?

      • The Pedal Commander Bluetooth Throttle Response Controller will always retain and store the most recently used setting. In terms, when you turn the vehicle on, it will still be on the last selected throttle mode you had it on.

      Helpful (3)

      I have a tune already and it's great. There is still such a delay in acceleration and throttle response because of the drive by wire. Can I use the pedal commander with the tune to fix the issue?

      • The Pedal Commander Bluetooth Throttle Response Controller can be paired with your existing tune as this device is connected directly to your accelerator which will give it direct power.

      I have been racing for years and use to leaving off the bottom bulb. I have just gotten a 2013 GT and the closest i can get hitting the throttle on the bottom bulb is a .650 reaction time, In order to get even close to a .500 green light i have to leave off the second bulb, before the third yellow even lights up. This is not very good for me and costs me many red lights. Will this product allow me to shave time off my throttle response so that i may leave off the third yellow and custom tune my reaction times?. 1 answer
