engine Start/Stop question

Went to the dealer to ask them about ordering a new Rubi. I want the 3.6l with a manual 6-speed transmission. The salesman I spoke with was not sure if with this package it has the start stop, so he asked another salesman that thought since it was a manual, it did not have it.

So what is the truth? Does the manual transmission have the auto with start stop? thanks

Not sure if you’re referring to the engine auto stop feature, but if so-mine does. You can push a button to turn it off or do so in the set-up.

Bummer, I thought maybe only the automatic transmission vehicles would have that feature. I have been looking online for a rubi with the 6 speed in my area to look at it in person, but they are hard to come by. Thanks for the reply,

You can disable it with a button on the dash. If you turn the Jeep off with it disabled it should continue to be disabled when you start the vehicle again. If not you can always get HP Tuners or Tazer etc and disable the system completely.

The ESS defaults to being enabled whenever you start the engine, regardless if it was on or off when the Jeep was turned off. Yes, there are aftermarket things that can disable it permanently but I just press the off button when I start the engine if I do not want it left on. It has become as natural to me as having to press the brake pedal before it will start.

Thanks all for answering the question you would think the salesman should know.

Ah, No.

Automatically defaults to on. The only way to get around this is to either push the button every time you start it or get a smartstopstart or a tazer/tazer mini.

I just ordered the Tazer, hope it works as advertised.

The Tazer mini does not disable the ESS, rather it remembers the switch position upon restart, so I guess it’s kinda the same thing.

If the switch is in the deactivated position when you turn it off, the Tazer mini will remember that it was turned off when you restart the vehicle. Without it, the Jeep will reset it to the on position automatically.

The Tazer mini also allows tire size changes for speedometer accuracy, PSI thresholds for the TPS system, among many other features.

The Jeep can be reset to the factory settings, for when you take it to the dealer for service.

I recently took mine in for an oil change, and one of the first things they did was to connect to the data port on my Jeep, with a handheld device. I’m not sure what they look for, but I’m assuming they would have said something to me if they had detected something had been used to change settings in the computer. The young man doing the oil change asked if I knew my tires were low, and I told him, yes, I only need 30 PSI with the 35’s, so I didn’t need them serviced to 37 PSI.

I just drove about 500 miles from NC to GA in about 8 hours. I was going about 80 MPH most of the trip, and I got about 22 MPG average. Not bad for a JKU with 2” lift on 35’s.
