Yeah, no body told us about a more aggresive setting for the EB. is this something that the dealer has done for you or are you going off of the daisy chain of he said she said!!!!

back when i first joined this forum there was talk of ppl getting their exhaust brake set to a more aggressive setting the same way that they activate the high idle for the trucks.

I've never heard of that and as far as I know no such thing exists.

The only way to make your EB seem more aggressive is to drive in tow/haul mode. That doesnt actually change the EB in anyway, you just notice it more because of the lower gears and higher RPM's.

My eb seems to disengage a little at 1500 RPM's but only while in Regen.

The EB stays effective until the tranny unlocks. Another beautiful thing about the edge A2 is you can observe the lock status of the tranny.

The regular attitude monitor has that feature as well, not just the A2 monitor.

I really want a more aggressive EB. I was just thinking earlier today as I read some other posts about people that were nearly rear ended because they didn't light the brake lights but were able to slow aggressively...not me. It makes a really cool sound and it slows down, but not impressively unless I start dropping gears on the auto shift. I can see maybe how someone with a stick could slow more aggressively but how is that any different from any other stick?

If there is a way to make it more agressive by default (other than tow/haul or manually dropping the gears down) then I want to hear about it!

well all i know is that if you go back and look at some of the posts from a while back....back before there were any dpf deletes or anything....you should be able to find posts with talk of getting a more aggressive setting....i personally don't have time to look back through all of the old posts but I was just curious.

I was reading the forums when 6.7 first came out way before delete kits and i never seen crap. but still curious. hopefully im wrong

I know there was talk about the re-flashes and how they were either increasing or decreasing the "power" of the EB. I think that is all there was, I know because I posted about it once or twice. The manual tranny seems to allow the EB to go down below 800-900 rpm's before it shuts off. I drove an auto because they were getting better fuel milage so I was thinking of buying one, after the test drive I KNEW that I didn't like the way the EB worked on the auto and so I didn't want to get one. It would have been nice to only have 2 pedals though!!

Mine seems to almost work too well in Tow/Haul. I don't think I would want it to be more aggressive...
I have found that shifting down to 5th gear or lower (auto trans) makes the brake stay engaged much longer.
