The ONLY no-compromise solution on the market!

The Start/Stop Eliminator is an revolutionary device that easily plugs in behind the diagnostic port below the steering wheel using the included T harness - eliminating the need to press the button every time you turn the vehicle on!

PLEASE get under your dash and find the connector shown below BEFORE purchasing.

  • Never press the button again!
  • Memorizes your preference for the start/stop system with NO programming changes
  • Will not void factory or extended warranties
  • NO tools or vehicle disassembly required - just plug in
  • Complete one-year replacement warranty, US company and support 
  • 2020 & 2021 Ford Explorer - all trim levels and screen orientations
  • BONUS: RWD Vehicles can ALSO re-enable the start stop system by pressing the Start/Stop Button on the dash
  • Simply insert between factory wire harness and back of the black gateway module (NOT THE DIAGNOSTIC PORT) tucked up inside the dash. This gateway module is up inside the dash above the brake pedal switch (blue connector in picture). The right hand picture picture is facing up and towards the REAR of the vehicle. Although no disassembly or tools are required, it does take a few minutes of effort to install. Please see the product video for complete install instructions before purchasing. This applies to ALL TRIM LEVELS - guaranteed!

    Excellent Start-Stop Eliminator

    Posted by MikeyTX on May 1st 2021

    True P N P right out of the box, unlike several others on the market that require disassembly of the lower steering wheel column cover in order to access the connector. This is well worth the price ! Install is 1 beer/2 slices of pizza. ;-)

    21 Explorer start stop

    Posted by Dave on Apr 20th 2021

    Works exactly as advertised. It however is not as easy to install, at least not with large hands. Pro tip, from outside the vehicle reach up under there with your left hand not your right.

    Start/Stop Eliminator

    Posted by Francis Sauciunas on Mar 22nd 2021

    It was difficult to see the cable that plugged into the gateway, so I had to unplug the cable by feel, not sight. I had to use the brake switch assembly as a point of reference to feel the gateway cable above it. After installing the Start/Stop Eliminator cable, I had to feel that cable connecting to the gateway. It only took 5 minutes to install. The Start/Stop Eliminator works just as advertised. Tech support was very helpful.

    No more engine off!

    Posted by Will Sobczuk on Dec 3rd 2020

    So annoying! I can't believe that Ford installed this in the 21 Explorer! I hate it, and hate it more when the engine turns off and then back on.. What a waste of starter and battery, doesn't save any fuel here in south florida, just annoying. But thanks to these guys, the SUV will remember to keep that useless function off for good! I wish this device could also remember the drive setting. Last thing, why can't that 8" screen just turn off and stay off? Why didn't Ford put a 'screen off' button or a setting for a timer? I feel for ST folks that have to stare at that huge laptop screen molded into their dashboard.
