How do you keep the Powerboost engine running? I want to check my transmission fluid level and the engine must be running and in park. Only way I can do this now is to have someone in the cab constantly blipping the throttle a little. Thanks.

If you disconnect both 12v batts for a few minutes, on first start it should just run.

Tow mode will keep it running. But it has to
Be in gear.

Just crank up the ac and heated seats, it'll run the ICE periodically, enough for you to quickly check the fluid anyway.

@Mosey Also turn off the faster eco idle in the vehicle settings. That way it will need to run the ICE longer to charge.

I don't have it bookmarked, but @Snakebitten has posted the procedure for how to keep the engine running to check the transmission fluid level a couple times here.
