Gen II Engine Stop Start or Auto Stop (ESS) Override for Cadillac XT5 2017 - 2023



NEW!- EXPANDED COVERAGE for most GM VEHICLES with AUTO STOP from 2016 through 2023.


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

    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

    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.

    Start stop module

    Posted by Donnie on Oct 24th 2022

    I'm not saying it's a bad product. It did eliminate the start stop feature. However it initiated a battery light and a check engine light. After I removed the module everything went back to normal. It may have been a defective module possibly. I'd probably try it again just because of that possibility.
