The ONLY no-compromise solution on the market!
IMPORTANT - Check out videos to compare versions
The Start/Stop Eliminator is an revolutionary device that easily plugs into the diagnostic port below the steering wheel - eliminating the need to press the button every time you turn the vehicle on!
Version 1 - Removed after programming is complete
This is our first iteration of this product - it makes a simple programming change to your vehicle in order to disable the start/stop system. The button and indicators will still look like they are working, but the vehicle will no longer shut down. Want to revert back to factory settings? No problem! Every time you plug the Start/Stop Eliminator back in it will toggle the state of the start stop system.
Version 2 - Stays plugged in for it to operate
This is our new and improved version - it makes absolutely no changes to your vehicle programming. It simply remembers if the auto start/stop system is enabled or disabled - eliminating the need to press the button every time you turn the vehicle on! This allows you to enable and disable the system right from the button on the dash, and eliminates the start/stop icon from showing in the cluster when the system is disabled.
Which should I choose?
Version 2 offers the ability to more easily enable and disable the system (right from the dash switch), makes no changes and can be moved from vehicle to vehicle (assuming it is a supported make and model). The only complaint is some folks don't like having something plugged into the diagnostic port all the time. This is no issue as it does not draw power while the vehicle is off and is not visible in most vehicles. You can always remove it to plug in a diagnostic scanner. Alternatively you can also purchase a OBDII extension cable to tuck it out of the way or purchase a splitter if you have another device that needs to stay plugged in as well.
Version 1 is more limited in that it makes a programming change to the vehicle, and once used, can not be used on another vehicle. The changes can be reverted but require the programmer to be plugged back in to make the change. For someone that insists that nothing stay plugged into the diagnostic port, this is the solution for you.

I was doing research on a way to get rid of the annoying Auto Start/Stop feature that has been forced on to F-150 owners. I came across a variety of different ways to deal with it and like the idea of something as simple as this. Literally you just plug it in and let it do it's job then unplug it and you are all set. It could not be any easier.
The device works as described perfectly every time.
No need to manual lay turn off the auto start stop of my 2018 F-150. No issues and does no harm to my truck.
Works great ! Plug it in and done !
Works perfectly, easy to install
Device was a little more difficult to plug in than it shows on the video, but that appears to be because my port is located further back under the dash and the little lip on the Eliminator rubs on the underside of the dash, but once it was plugged it it works as designed and I love it.
Works perfectly to the point where you just don’t know it’s there. All City driving for both trucks and we have had zero impact on our MPG. The transaction went smooth and shipping was fast.
Plug and Play right out of the package. Should be 6 star rated!!
I manage a diverse medium sized private fleet of 50% Ford / 50% GM. I see all the new tricks they use for economy. In my opinion only, I don't trust the auto start/stop feature. This device delivers just as promised. It's very simple to use and I recommend to anyone wanting to defeat the auto start/stop function on their vehicle without compromising anything else.
Works just like it said! But a Little hard to plug in and get out. Only had it working for one day so we will see
