Installation is a breeze with this Autostop Eliminator! Simply plug it into the On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) port located under the dash in the driver's side footwell. When it's plugged in, you can count on the device to ensure that when you turn auto start/stop off, it remains off.
This device won't make any changes to your vehicle. You can leave it plugged in to automatically restore your auto start/stop preference, but you can also unplug it at any time to revert to stock behavior.
Tech Tip: The device has an LED light to indicate when it's awake and working. Some may prefer the LED to remain OFF so this preference is configurable. To turn the LED light OFF, press and hold the auto start/stop button on the vehicle until the LED light on the device blinks (~5 seconds). Repeat the procedure to turn the LED back ON. After completing this procedure, be sure to check the state of auto start/stop using the OFF indicator on the auto start/stop switch. Assuming your preference is OFF, you may need to press the auto start/stop button briefly once more.
Please Note: Does NOT fit Australian or European variants.
