[2021 Chevy Equinox new Gen II GM module] This device is unbelievable-works absolutely fantastic with no side effects at all. I love it-I was even able to talk the wife into getting one for her Equinox. I will definitely recommend this product to anyone and will continue to support this brand as long as they keep trying to improve the environment by cutting out emissions for a minute at a time and creating excessive wear and tear on our vehicles!! Thank you so much for all your efforts!!! Unsolicited email, 2/9/22
[2021 Buick Encore GX new Gen II GM module] Hi Steve. First off a big thank for making the stop/start module. It is working as advertised.

[2020 Buick Enclave new Gen II GM module] Steve, got my SmartStopStart module a couple of days ago. So far, it works like a charm and was very easy to install. Best thought I have is that I now enjoy driving "the wife's " 2020 Buick Enclave.

[2018 Buick Enclave new Gen II GM module] i was so happy to find out that I could buy a part for my Buick Enclave to stop the auto stop because not only is it very annoying I really think it ruins your engine and since I put this part on my SUV it has been running much better without restarting every time it stops, so it def has improved it's performance. If I could give a rating of 1-10.... I'd give Steve a 10. He was so kind and helpful and it's very hard to find that these days. I would refer his business to anyone and not only that his products work amazing.
Thanks again Steve. You're the best!!! =) Unsolicited email, 1/24/22

[2019 Buick Enclave] I just want to thank you and commend you on your great product. I bought an engine auto stop override from you and it has been a God send! It went in very easily with your great instructions. I took my time and it looks like a factory installation. The car has 30,000 miles and needs brakes already. I just traded for it 3 weeks ago and discovered what a major PIA the engine auto stop was. And to have no shut off button! It obviously was a city car. THINK how many times the engine must've been started and stopped! Thank you again. I'm so glad I discovered your product. Now it drives just like a "normal" car!

It arrived this week. Instructions took 5 minutes to read and it was fitted in 3 minutes. Yes, I will remove it for service purposes as it's so easy to fit and remove.
It works perfectly and allows me to make intelligent choice of the stop start mode rather than be beholden to a decision that was made without knowledge of my circumstance. Unsolicited email, 1/21/21

[2018 GMC Terrain] I was skeptical about this thing but I was sick and tired of this horrid "feature" on my new car. I put up with it because at the time it didn't bother me much. Then I installed a Kenwood two-way radio into my car. To my dismay every time I left off the break... here comes Auto-Stop! The voltage in my cars fuse panel drops for a moment and my two-way radio restarts!
I was willing to take a chance, the install was easy and it worked right away. The wire harness was exactly where you said it was an exactly as described, I installed it faster than I was able to open the packaging lol! Seriously, thank you.
I'm going to recommend this to anyone trying to avoid this horrid "feature". It was worth every penny :) Unsolicited email, 8/19/20

I hated the system with a passion, it always stopped at the wrong times and took too long to restart. The worst part was that I could never remember to turn it off before it shut the Jeep down the first time during a trip.
After looking at your Jaguar products, I knew this solution would be top notch and I was not disappointed. I loved the device so much that I got 3 friends to buy them for their vehicles.

[2017 Cadillac XT5] 'Hi Steve, just wanted to give you some feedback on your product to eliminate the startstop feature on our 2017 Cadillac XT5. This is exactly what this car needed! When we first purchased this car in Feb of 2017 we took a test drive and everything seemed fine to us at the time. When my wife drove the car home that day, the engine shut off after getting off the freeway. What the heck is going on now?
I called and talked to our salesman and discovered (after his apology) that it was simply the startstop feature going into effect. He had "forgotten" to explain this feature! Well, I went to the Service Manager and he , in turn, went up the chain to ask if a setting could be changed to disable the feature and to my dismay the answer was NO, and "NO WAY". I was NOT a happy customer.
In my opinion, the car does not drive like I would expect a Cadillac to drive with this feature enabled. I understand that GM is trying to satisfy some government regulation somewhere and needs to show that they are doing their part in developing technology that helps to save gas but this feature is downright annoying. I would not have bought the car if I had been aware of this. Shame on ME for not doing better research on the features of the new XT5 prior to purchase!
Thanks for developing a product that solves this problem! The hardest part of the install was separating the 2 plugs that allow your product to plug in. It took about 5 minutes to install.

I contacted Steve, and he send me a replacement module via next day mail, free of charge, along with a pre-paid return mailer for my old one. Not sure if the original device was faulty, but the new device has worked flawlessly so far.

'Steve, I just installed the module, had to wait for warm weather. Your instructions were excellent, you didn't miss a step and the pictures were great and it worked first time. I could hug you guys. Super job! I did change one thing. Instead of tie wrapping the module to the harness, I used double sided tape and stuck it to the lower cover. That way if I ever have to take the car in, all I have to do is disconnect the harness rather than undo or cut tie wraps. Thanks again for an amazing job.' Unsolicited email, 4/9/19

While they did a good job in how the stop/start operates, it's not a technology I really want to be bothered with anymore. If I had to continue my mostly city commute and the gas prices continued to rise, then perhaps I could see wanting it for actual cost savings (and other tree-hugger related reasons). With my commute changing to mostly highway next week, I'm much less concern. And regardless - it's easy enough to revert back to stock should any of those conditions change again in the future.'

Today, I took my 2018 JL into a local, licensed, New York State DMV Vehicle Inspection Shop/Center, for it's yearly vehicle inspection.
Required is that the shop attach a computer to the vehicle that communicates with NYS DMV.
The computer attaches, using a cable that plugs into your vehicle's OBDll port.
Long story short, even though the SmartStopStart was attached at the gateway that is inline with the OBDll port, the shop's computer had no issues communicating with my JL, via the OBDll port.
I should add.... I reached out to Steve @SmartStopStart.com prior to taking my JL in for the vehicle inspection.
I was quite confident that there would be no issue with communication between my JL, with the SmartStopStart connected and the shops computer.... but I wanted Steve, to concur with my belief.
Steve was quick to reply to my query. As always, Steve was more then willing and quite enthusiastic, in regard to answering questions and concerns in regard to his terrific product offering.

Sorry that we have not e-mailed you earlier, but things have been quite busy around here and when we did get some time it slipped our minds.
About a month ago, we purchased a new 2019 Cadillac XT5. We ordered and received the module the same week that we took possession of our new vehicle.
It was extremely easy to install as it came with very good instructions and photos showing exactly how to install it. It took us only about 10 minutes to install it.
It works just as described. We are no longer bothered or annoyed by that start / stop system.
All we can say is you have developed a product that works flawlessly - is easy to install- and very reasonably priced.
We hated that stop / start feature and until we researched and found your product we were ready to just keep the old car and not purchase a new vehicle with that stupid start / stop feature.

'I purchased a "new" leftover 2017 Chevy Cruze in November 2018. It wasn't a week until my wife asked if the auto-stop feature could be turned off. Everyone said "no", and then I came across SmartStop while searching the web.
My wife drives 120 miles a day to and from work. The SmartStop device was installed with less than 1K miles on the odometer, and it now has over 3.5K. She forgets the auto stop "feature" even exists anymore! Works as advertised, and we are very pleased with the device. It is also well hidden under some of the plastic coverings, so unless someone is looking for it, they would not know it was there.
As for fuel mileage...the Cuze is rated 31/38 mpg. The worst average (per fill up) has been 33.5 mpg, and the best 45 mpg (highway trip, averaging 60mph, and yes, seriously!) Normally though, it is around 37mpg. I would argue with anyone that the SmartStop has negatively impacted the fuel economy based on our experience...add to that the reduced wear and tear on the starter, battery, and related components, and I am more than pleased!

['18 Buick Envision] 'I could give you many reasons why this [Auto Stop] CAN be dangerous:
-Pulling into a parking spot and against the curb, the engine shuts down then restarts, car jumps curb.
-Making a left turn into oncoming traffic, you come off the break and stab the gas, the car hesitates and stalls
-Accessing Car washes, Jiffy lube racks, parking in your garage just to name a few.
My wife's Envision was originally an Enterprise Rental and had the feature disabled. I had to take it in for service where the vehicle was reflashed for a TSB. After that the start/stop starting working. My wife freaked out the first time it happened, I immediately searched for a solution.
There are a number of methods to inhibit the start/stop. Being an Engineer I wanted a solution that would not create other problems or possibly void the warranty. I found Whitexkr's device on the Cadillac XT5's forum and researched it heavily and compared it to other solutions. I was impressed on the design and how it exploits a loophole in the systems design. I ordered the unit and received it quickly. The instructions are easy to follow. I might make one suggestion, you can easily install in under the plastic radiator support cover in front of the radiator support instead of next to the hood latch making it nearly invisible. As far as operation is concerned It works perfectly. When you start the car you [might] get a brief message that the hood is open and it will reset without intervention. The unit is about half the size of a tic tac container. The unit has connectors on each side which makes it easy if you wish to remove it before service. Many are talking about the 2019 and the disable button, this is a far better solution as you dont need to push it every time you start the car.'

It's on sale right now as it is normally sold for $149 plus shipping. Unlike some of the others on here I don't need any other features so I bought this unit in lieu of the more expensive multi function units.
Install - Instructions are clear and easy to follow and it is a little tight getting to the wires under the dash just as the instructions say. I did add removing the center panel underneath the steering column. Don't worry it pops off real easy and goes back on just as easy as it came off. I installed the unit just as the instructions said but did make a slight modification. After using the provided Velcro to attach the module to the metal crossbar I also ran a plastic zip-tie around it as I just wanted it a little more secure. Probably not necessary but made me feel better.
Testing - I have tested this unit every way I can think of and it works perfectly as advertised. If you turn the Start Stop off with the switch and you shut your Jeep off and then restart it, it defaults to where you left it. I even tried it with the remote start and it works the same way. Turn the switch off and the start stop goes back to working just like it is supposed to. This unit is so simple I can't believe Jeep didn't do it from the get go but they didn't so I love this unit.

Also, I like that after it's installed, there is a way, from inside the vehicle, to engage the start stop for a particular trip (using the remote start function), but I have no idea why I would choose to do that. I appreciate like the fact that it does not do anything in terms of reprogramming the ECM or BCM. That might be a deal breaker for me. The module simply tricks the car into thinking [for a second after starting] the hood is open, yet there are no “hood open” dummy light warnings. BRILLIANT!
It works perfectly and I thank you so very much for making a product that resolves the one significant issue I had with respect to this vehicle!!!!!!!' Unsolicited email, 8/9/18

"I purchased my Durango in June and when I bought it I didn't like the "start/stop" feature! I grew to hate it! Then with some frustration I contacted Dodge, my dealer, Fiat and, frankly, everyone I could think of looking for a "factory fix"! No luck and very little understanding! Then I found a forum talking about the "Smart Stop Start" system you sell. I was very apprehensive about it because this factory stop start system is VERY involved with many, many of the cars drive and safety systems! Reading the testimonials and all the information I could find I saw NOTHING really negative. Then I decided that the frustration of dealing with the problem, the dealership and Dodge made trying your product worth while! So far; I've found all the testimonials I've read to be honest and true and would most respectfully like to add mine! The sensitivity of the systems your Smart Stop Start has been of concern; but, I can honestly say that NOTHING from gas mileage to performance is different!

'When this thread first started, I thought it was ridiculous, come on it's just one more button to push. If I didn't remember at start up, I always remember at the first stop. Then one day I was leaving a business with a moderately steep exit onto a busy 4 lane road. while concentrating on picking my spot to pull out, I eased up slightly on the brake, started to depress accelerator in the blink on an eye the jeep rolled backwards 4-5 feet before it started. If someone had been behind me, I would have hit them. So I guess sometimes you don't get a second chance. Went home and ordered Smartstopstart (lucky it was on sale). No problems since'.

The FCA claim of 1mpg in city driving may be the case under certain conditions, say where the stops are at long lights.

"I owned my first grand cherokee for 17 years. When I decided it was time for a new vehicle I looked at all the different 2017 SUV's and cross overs on the market and decided that for me, Jeep was still the way to go. My priorities were, comfort, style, towing capability, storage capacity, and a luxurious interior with great sound (if you get the 600 watt sub woofer option). The jeep came the closest to meeting all of these for under $50k. I took my first 1,500 mile trip last week and was very pleased with all the above mentioned (other than I haven’t towed a trailer yet).
The 3.6L ESS engine (ESS stands for electronic stop/start) is designed to SHUT OFF EVERY TIME YOU COME TO A COMPLETE STOP LASTING MORE THAN A FEW SECONDS. ). It does start back up when you release the brake but only after a noticeable delay. This is to save a few drops of gas, but think about this the next time you’re inching along in traffic, waiting in line for a hamburger, or wanting to make a quick right hand turn at a red light. Also keep in mind that when your engine shuts off so does the heating and cooling. (the sales guys will try to give you all kinds of BS about this major design screw up and will tell you that you can turn it off, BUT you have to turn it off EVERY time you start your Jeep) Now the GOOD NEWS. there is a solution on the internet that just takes 3 seconds to plug in your maintenance port and allows YOU to decide if and when you ever want to use this extremely annoying feature (I did drive the first 500 miles with the ESS feature enabled and it was very annoying to both me and my wife). I would not of purchased a jeep if I hadn’t of already found a great solution to overcome this design flaw at http://www.smartstopstart.com/."

"The best solution I've found for my 2017 GC is the plug in module found at Smart Stop Start - Home. It costs $125 and just plugs into your maintenance jack by the parking brake pedal. Installs in about 3 seconds. It remembers your last ECO, ESS, and SPORT settings so you don't have to push the buttons each time you restart your jeep. If you want to change the settings just press the button(s) and it will remember the new settings. Well worth the money, given the annoyance factor of this poorly thought out design.
