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.

Ignore all the internet HACKS that attempt to defeat auto stop/start - the Start/Stop Eliminator version 2 exclusively from 4D Tech is the only product that maintains full functionality of your auto start/stop system with NO installation, No programming and NO negative side-effects.

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).

    What an easy installation

    Posted by Douglas I Hagen on May 7th 2020

    They are not kidding about how easy this is to install, plugged it in, waited for the green light, and no more auto engine stop/start. I would recommend this to everyone!!

    start/stop eliminator

    Posted by Edward Thompson on Mar 11th 2020

    I ordered this one because of how well my last one worked. I was a little disappointed that the device must be left plugged in this time. The instructs did not say that it must be left plugged in.

    [4D Tech] Edward - You purchased our "Version 2" which stays plugged in and makes no programming changes. You could have purchased our "Version 1" which makes a programming change and does not stay plugged in.

    I absolutely hate the start/stop function on my Ford F-150. This unit instantly stopped the nonsense. Cheaper than therapy .

    Auto Start/Stop eliminator

    Posted by John K on Jan 20th 2020

    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.
