The owners manual also tells how to use the fast idle.
I use it for warmups and charging battery when jump starting equipment.

I see folk's asking how to add or install such a thing, I had no idea it was there tho my turck has an elector/Hydro lift for the dump bed so the fast idle doesn't do much for me but warm it up in the winter n cool it down in the summer. . .

Edit:
so is there others like me who have this option built in and not know about it ?

I want that. My truck doesn't seem to have it. Can't find it in my book either. Can I have the dealer turn it on?

It takes about 2 minutes to have the dealer enable this with Starscan. Some come already enabled, some you have to go back. Mine came ready to go.

Thats true, I forgot that the dealer needs to activate it. Most will do it for free.
Sometimes I will also use it if I want to leave the truck running for a while like running the ac while parked. Increasing the idle speed helps get around the issues of long periods of idling and problems/issues that can happen with long idling times.

man this forum is falling behind. the high idle has been a known feature for a loonnnngggg time. it is a little different on the g56 though. you need to ground a clutch safety switch wire that is located down on the lower firewall behind the main wire harness. look through my early posts (late '07 probably) and you'll find what you need. let me know if you can't find it. oh yeah, the feature is great for keeping the a/c colder while idling, warming the truck up MUCH faster in combo with the exhaust brake, and most importantly helping prevent wet stacking/cylinder wash while idling.

I think this had gone around many times! It is stock with all 6.7's
With the truck in park and your foot off of the brake
Turn on the Cruise control
Press set - idle will increase to around 1100
use speed up and down to increase or decrease idle.
