Press Release (UNEDITED): Holly Hill, FL – Axxess Integrate® by Metra Electronics® is now shipping a new STOP/START engine override interface for GM vehicles. The AXSSO-GM is designed to automatically disengage the STOP/START engine feature on select 2016-2019 GM vehicles, including Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC. This new and exclusive technology was previously introduced at CES 2019 for select Ford and Chrysler models. The patent-pending interface can be used with factory or aftermarket radios with no programming required. The AXSSO-GM has weather-resistant housing and harnessing with a simple two-wire installation under the hood.
As some newer vehicles come equipped with a way to disengage the engine’s STOP/START feature, there are still several GM models that do not allow the driver to turn this off. This may become bothersome at long traffic lights during hot or inclement weather, as it could affect the vehicle’s ability to cool or heat the interior. The vibration of the engine turning on and off may also be annoying to some drivers during city driving. Now, installers will have the ability to offer GM owners the option to override their engine’s STOP/START feature with the new AXSSO-GM interface.
