Today I’m gonna be showing you how to disable the auto start/stop the correct way in a Chrysler Pacifica. now the auto start/stop for those of you who know it’s when you were coming to a stop, once you can do a stop zero miles an hour, the car shuts off the engine, and then when you let off the brake it’ll turn it back on. find it kind of annoying you also have to push this button to go ahead and turn it off. and there is um one video on youtube about how to disable on a Pacifica.
That is going under the hood. that is going ahead and I’m plugging this hood sensor right here. now, this does enable it but it does mean that you aren’t gonna be able to use remote start. and then the annoying hood open display is always gonna be on there. just like to see hereafter this message is going away there it is. you’ll get that all the time which is kind of annoying. but I came across the video the other day.
I’ll link it in the description about a guy who put a video of saying the correct way to disable it on the Jeep Grand Cherokee or a Dodge Durango.
Well, he did is he went under the passenger seat to the battery. and unplug the set we plugged on the negative terminal. to do i.t well there’s no battery but I got thinking and came under the hood. I noticed this it looks exactly like the one on the guy’s video. and so I thought oh well maybe that’s it and so if you come under here look at this on the negative terminal. it’s this little plug here located here. and you’re gonna pull it out. you’re gonna have to like to wiggle it.
It’s gonna be really hard but just wiggles it back and forth. it’s gonna take a bit of force. but once you do that enough, you can get it out. and then I noticed it had this green thing which was just like the video and I knew this had to be it. so once you have that out I think I’m gonna maybe tape mine down. but I mean it doesn’t go anywhere I mean it originally sat just a bit down.
So what doesn’t seem very loose so I don’t think it’s gonna be a problem. but with this, as you can see here let me get on my keys. I still have remote start functionality. you can see. and now you can see that there’s a problem with it. so my video stopped unfortunately so I’m having to record again. but it comes with this symbol here and it says it’s unavailable.
I can show you that little message again by going down to the in my opinion completely useless auto start/stop menu. and it says start/stop unavailable service the start/stop system. and so there you go it’s disabled and I still have remote start functionality. and there’s no good thing.
