I see above it is plug and play, where does it plug?

Question: How easy is it to install?
It plugs in under the dash, in the diagnostic connector just to the right of the hood release. Takes all of 10 seconds, including bending down and getting up. Tests are going well...I hope to have it for sale sometime in March.

I just became a supporting vendor on this forum. You will be seeing more of me soon.

For now I am keeping it simple. It is just memorizes your last ESS setting and restores it when you start the vehicle. I learned from selling these to Grand Cherokee and Durango owners over the last few months, that is what most people want.

I do not rule out adding features to broaden the appeal in the future. If I do, my policy is exchange upgrades for the first two years just for the cost of shipping for those who want it.

Looking forward to seeing this product become available in March. Easy to add, easy to remove for dealer visits. Best of all no permanent modification.

My wife will appreciate it, she hates the current ESS button function as much as I do.

Just a quick note. @whitexkr popped back in a few weeks ago for a tweak to the programming. My module has been working flawlessly ever since, and my ESS has been permanently disabled since installing the module. No system faults or codes, and I could turn it back on any time I wanted to (although, why would you want to?). Just thought I'd give an update to the forum members.

whitexkr, any idea when these will roll out to the public? I love the exclusivity concept, but I'm sure other members are eager to get there hands on these babies!
