Axxess Integrate by Metra Electronics is debuting a new interface designed to automatically disengage the STOP/START engine feature on select Ford and Chrysler vehicles.
The new AX-SSO can be used with factory or aftermarket radios. The vehicle type is configured through Axxess Updater PC software and a simple four-wire installation performed at the radio location, said Metra.
“Having the engine turn off when stopped may be bothersome to some people. Now installers can offer drivers the option to override or re-engage this feature automatically,” says Juan Lugo, Director of Product Development for Axxess.
The AX-SSO is currently patent-pending.
It will be on display this week at CES, North Hall Booth #5211.
