  • Memorizes your preference for the start/stop system
  • Simple plug n' play install
  • NO programming changes (Version 2)
  • Maintains factory & extended warranties
  • 30-Day money-back guarantee

Version 1 - Removed after programming is complete 

This version 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 version 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.

Which should I choose?

It's a matter of personal preference. Still not sure? Choose version 2!

  • Q – “Will the start/stop eliminator work on my vehicle?”
  • A – Yes. The start/stop eliminator had been tested on on all the models and years listed.

  • Q – “Does the start/stop eliminator cause any issues?”
  • A – No. The start/stop eliminator does not cause any issues.

  • Q – “Will the start/stop eliminator void my warranty?”
  • A – No. The start/stop eliminator will not void your vehicle warranty. 

  • Q – “Will the dealer know I used the start/stop eliminator on my vehicle after I unplug it?”
  • A – No. The start/stop eliminator makes ABSOLUTELY NO changes to your vehicle (version 2). Version 1 does make a change to the vehicle programming.

  • Q – “I plugged in the start/stop eliminator and I don't see any changes - is it working?”
  • A – Yes! The start/stop eliminator simply remembers if you want the auto start/stop system turned on or off (version 2) or disables the Start/Stop system (Version 1). 

  • Q – “Can I use the start/stop eliminator in another compatible vehicle?”
  • A – Although the start/stop eliminator does not "lock" to a vehicle, it MUST remain plugged in to work (version 2). Version 1 does lock to the first vehicle it is plugged into. In any case, multiple vehicles WILL require multiple eliminators.

  • Q – “What if I want to occasionally turn the auto start/stop system back on?”
  • A – Simply use the auto start/stop button on your dash like normal (version 2) or plug the Start/Stop Eliminator back in to toggle the system (version 1). 

  • Q – “It looks like I can just plug the start/stop eliminator into the front of the diagnostic port. Do I need to use the included harness?”
  • A – Yes. The included harness is REQUIRED for this particular application (version 2).

    No More AutoStart/Stop

    Posted by Steve O on Sep 14th 2022

    We had just bought our first car with AutoStart/Stop. Both of us from the beginning understood it but just had issues dealing with the feature. After finding out there was no user way to turn the feature off other than to push the button every time we got in, I looked for a bypass. Well we found 4Tech’s cable solution (v2). So ordered it, it came quickly, watched the install video and a few minutes later, the issue was resolved! My wife and I are very happy with this easy solution. It worked as described and has been enjoyed since being installed. I love plug & play when it’s this easy and works!

    Wish this would be a dealer option. Works amazing. Install was ok, took some time to get everything connected.

    Highly recommend to anyone!

    Posted by David on Nov 12th 2021

    I have a 2016 Ford Fusion with 38k, I purchased in March 2021. In June the check engine light came on, then a short time later it began flashing. I took to dealership they said plugs were bad and replaced them. Cost me $200. In September engine light comes on again., and start flashing on my way to work. I cancelled work and had car towed to dealership. I told the mechanic, I think this is happening due to the auto start/stop. He said no, everything checked out and one of the plugs was defective so they replaced it no charge. Well it cost me $250 to have towed and I missed a weeks work waiting for them to look at it, costing me $2200 in lost wages. It arrived in 3 days, I used it immediately. It flashed then went solid green at described..been using almost a week now. EUREKA...aggravation of trying to remember to shut off start /stop is gone...engine check light is gone, tow Bill's are gone, stupi d mechanics are gone, lost wages are gone. It's a fantastic product, it did a lot more for me than to just remove an aggravation. I would highly recommend to anyone. THANK YOU VERY MUCH

    2020 Ford Fusion

    Posted by Shawn Johnson on May 18th 2021

    This is a great device that is easy to install and does the job exactly as described. No more remembering to push the button for unwanted engine stops! The YouTube video documents the process very well.

    Works great and does the job

    Bought it, it was delivered, I followed the instructions and plugged it in. It flashed blue then solid green. Unplugged and drove. That annoying "feature" was gone. I've recommended it to friends of mine who own Fusions.
