    The Hellcat IS perfection - no doubt.

    But I have a small pet peeve - and maybe it can be programmed out:

    The instrument cluster lights up whenever someone without a key pulls the door handle.

    Whenever someone touches the capacitive membrane on either front door handle, the CAN-IHS communication bus wakes up in anticipation of a passive entry event. When the bus wakes up, it awakens most modules, including the instrument cluster.
    Pretty much have to disable passive entry to prevent the bus from waking up.

    Thanks for the reply:)

    Maybe it can be dimmed down?

    I saw a message there that said to depress clutch and hit the button for start up. Not too comfortable with that provocatory message - to those without a key of course.

    I understand your concern but not sure if anything can be done about it. I'll see if I can dig something up. Might be a few days though.
