    Am thrilled I found 4DTech!!

    Posted by Dawn on Feb 14th 2022

    I purchased my 2021 Explorer last year and really loved the vehicle but there were the two little things that just bugged me...the double horn and the auto stop/start. I was at the bus stop one afternoon surfing the net looking for a DIY fix for the horn issue and stumbled across your solution. I cannot tell you how happy your fix for the horn and the start/stop has made me!!! My Explorer is now perfect!! Perfect I tell you!!! I am thrilled with my purchase and am thrilled I found 4DTech!!

    Frustration Eliminator

    Posted by R Loethen on Nov 30th 2021

    The Start/Stop Eliminator has removed the constant frustration I had with my Explorer constantly shutting off at every stop. I realize with the 4WD Explorer the module forces the auto start OFF and can’t be turned back on. It would be nice to have this capability.

    Also, not 4D Tech’s fault but installation is a pain since you can’t see where the module gets plugged in and simply have to feel with your hands and hope you’ve unplugged the right module. Their video telling you precisely where it is located is what made installation possible for me.
