Gen II Engine Stop Start or Auto Stop (ESS) Override for Cadillac XT5 2017 - 2024




NEW!- EXPANDED COVERAGE for most GM VEHICLES with AUTO STOP from 2016 through 2024.


VERY EASY TO INSTALL and REMOVE in about 3 minutes on most vehicles.
(No Disassembly...Plug-and-play connection...One simple nut...One Velcro patch)


(No restrictions, no waits, no special procedures)




NEW!- SUPPORTS both GAS and DIESEL vehicles.


NEW!- SUPPORTS domestic and export models.


Works on vehicles either that DO and those that DO NOT have an auto stop button.


GM vehicles offer a manual Engine Stop Start Disable (ESS) pushbutton, but every time you restart your vehicle you have to press the button if you would like to disable the ESS.  If you dislike ESS and are in and out of the car several times a day, have trouble remembering to press the silly button, or simply hate the idea of this feature, this product may be for you.  

Whether you like ESS or not (and many of us really dislike it), SmartStopStart puts you fully in control of this feature. It will allow your vehicle to automatically recall whether ESS was on or off the last time you drove and place it back into the same state the next time you start your car. 

 Very simple installation that takes a couple of minutes. 

  • Installation instructions included
  • There are NO side effects, NO fault messages, NO fault beeps and NO fault codes
  • It will not affect the performance of reliability of your vehicle

    Gen II SmartStartStop

    Great product! 5 min install in the dark in my driveway. I've had it installed in my 2017 Cadillac XT5 for a week now. No codes thrown, no remote start issues and best of all, no more engine shut off and start up when I stop!

    These are awesome. That function is annoying and this device is perfect. This is my second vehicle I have purchased one for.

    2017 Cadillac xt5 Works Great

    Posted by Scott on Mar 11th 2023

    I installed this on my 2017 Cadillac xt5 after continuously looking for something out on the market. ZIC Moto is the only company that offers this. Very easy to install. Everyone should have this the auto stop feature on these vehicles are just overkill and annoying. Just think of the one time it will leave you stranded sitting at a stop light. Well worth the money!!

    OMG....I am so excited! Put the eliminator on and expected to see engine warning signals going off, none yet. I keep expecting my car to die every time I stopped, so far so good!! It works and I'm super excited, and the fact it only took five minutes to put it on!!

    Auto start/stop

    Posted by Rodney C on Dec 13th 2022

    I give a 3 for starter, I’m just 3 days into product. So good so far, my body goes into anticipation waiting for that start/stop to kick. The module is doing its job. Hands up and it was very easy to install. Lol, in a months time, pretty sure it’ll be a 5 for me.
