Popular Isuzu models suitable for towing.



Rather than a traditional accelerator cable, many modern vehicles use 'fly by wire' throttle technology. This system relies on a sensor that measures the pedal pressure and position and sends a signal to the vehicle's engine computer which converts to acceleration. Many of these fly by wire systems have a noticeable delay. iDRIVE allows you to tune the signal from the accelerator pedal with multiple inbuilt settings to ensure you find a setting that suits your driving style, although there are other products on the market that can offer this performance.


So what makes iDRIVE different?

iDRIVE includes an automatic control function that changes the level of throttle performance based on pedal pressure. So if you are in traffic and accelerating gently the iDRIVE will select setting 1. If you are accelerating hard to overtake, towing a heavy trailer, or just having fun the iDRIVE will select 9. The result is the smoothest aftermarket control module on the market. 



How It Works


'Multiple settings ensures iDRIVE suits everyones driving style'

Eco Mode

ECO mode is designed for economy by reducing the accelerator response time. Also handy when you are on the trails and looking for a bit more throttle control when crawling.

Ultimate Mode

Ultimate Mode offers 9 sensitivity levels, this allows the driver to tune the controller to the desired level of sensitivity. Choose level 9  and grip the steering wheel tight or hit level 1 for a gentle smooth acceleration.

AC Mode

Automatic control mode automatically selects the sensitivity level based on pedal pressure. If you are in traffic and accelerating gently the iDRIVE will automatically choose a reduced level of throttle response. If you accelerate hard for overtaking or just even just for fun the iDRIVE will choose a mode with an increased level of throttle response. Automatic Control mode is what makes iDRIVE the most intelligent throttle controller on the market.





How does the iDRIVE work?

The iDRIVE throttle controller modifies the voltage signal from the fly-by-wire pedal assembly to allow you to tune the response from your accelerator pedal and greatly reduce throttle lag. The iDRIVE plugs directly into your pedal command module and can generally be installed in as little as 5 minutes.


Does the iDRIVE increase horsepower?

No, iDRIVE throttle controllers will not increase power output. They have no control over fuel mapping, air to fuel ratio or injection timing. The iDRIVE simply changes the way your throttle responds, eliminating any lags or delays in the throttle system and sharpening response. It essentially gets rid of the feeling that there’s a big wet sponge sitting underneath the accelerator pedal of most modern cars with the fly-by-wire system.


Is iDRIVE suitable for towing?

iDRIVE throttle controllers are very useful for towing as they help get your vehicle up to speed from a standing start while using less effort, placing less strain on your motor and using less fuel. Especially handy around town where there is a lot of stopping and starting.


What transmission does the iDRIVE work with?

iDRIVE throttle controllers are suited to both manual and automatic transmissions.


Is the iDRIVE hard to install?

On the vast majority of vehicles the iDRIVE can be installed in under 2 minutes with no tools or technical knowledge required. Every unit comes with a clear set of instructions which take you through a step-by-step installation. The iDRIVE was always designed with plug and play application in mind, so anyone, anywhere can reap the benefits of an iDRIVE in their vehicle.


Is the IDRIVE universal or vehicle specific?

Although every iDRIVE shares the same main hardware and applications, each iDRIVE is specifically

Programmed to each vehicle, meaning they are not transferable across makes and models. Please checkour application guidelines for the makes/models we can supply an iDRIVE for.


Is the iDRIVE suitable for petrol engines?

The iDRIVE can be used on both naturally aspirated and forced induction petrol and diesel engines.
