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 in behind 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 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?

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.

It literally could not be easier to use!

  • 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).

    After looking at all the different options available to disable the Start/Stop on my Ranger Tremor, I decided on the 4D Tech Start/Stop Eliminator, and i'm glad I did!
    No messing around with switches or wiring harnesses. Takes 10 seconds and works flawlessly!
    Thank you 4D Tech!

    It worked. I also notified the Ford company where I purchased my Ranger as well as my local dealer. No one knew you could by pass the start/stop system.

    Installation took about 5 mins. With watching the video over and over to make sure I'm good took 15 mins lol but works as described and my ranger is wired in a way I don't even need to zipped tie it. Neatly tucked in on its own. Kinda expensive for what it does but yeah

    It works just as advertised. So much better without the blasted engine stopping and restarting at each stop.

    Great Product

    Posted by David M on Feb 23rd 2021

    Works like a charm and eliminates that annoying start/stop program. Leave it up to the federal government to come up with this especially when none of them provably drive their own vehicles.

    Excellent stop start eliminator

    Posted by Michael on Feb 18th 2021

    The programmer stop start eliminator for a 2019 to 21 Ford Ranger works absolutely perfectly. Very easy to use and makes the programming changes in a matter of seconds and you can forget about unexpected shut offs forever. Item was promptly shipped and delivered early. I highly recommend.
