Hey all,

 

I was looking into an autostop disabler (really hate that feature) I have found one from autostop eliminator for 90$ that says it does not interfere with the older AFM tech. that looks like it plugs somewhere into the wiring. I also found one from Range Tech that does not say anything about any DOD tech AFM or DFM and is about twice the price that plugs into the OBD2 port.

 

I am leaning towards the Range Tech one - I would enjoy being able to take it off easily in the event it needs warranty work. Has anyone installed this on a 5.3 with the newer DFM? I would think that this would not interfere with AFM or DFM at all, but I want to make sure before dropping about 200$.

 

I am open to suggestions from of other brands as well! Thanks for your help! Links below of the two mentioned.

 

Autostop Elim - 90 lengthy install process.

Range - 190 - plug in and uninstall in seconds.

I have this on my 6.2. Same device though. It deactivates DFM and auto stop/start. The auto stop device one turns off the stop start feature.

It does. They state that because they haven’t gotten them working on all the 6.2 trucks yet. There were/are some issues but I lucked out and ordered and they said if it doesn’t work they would take back. No issues with mine.

I have both and am really happy with it. I got the auto stop first because I hated having to hit the button each every time I started my truck. Install was very easy if you watch the YouTube videos. If youre interested in this, I'd recommend emailing the owner as he will sometimes through in a code to save you some $.

I then ordered the obdii module since I wanted to eliminate the dfm. I'm happy with how it operates. I figured if I ever wanted to remove it I could to have the benefits of dfm while maintaining the auto stop.

Hey Ryan, I have a 2020 6.2 10-speed Trail Boss, and I’ve been waiting for confirmation before I order the DFM/auto start-stop disabling tool from Range. My question is how do you know if the DFM disable is working? You have a 10-speed 6.2 right? I appreciate any input.

When I spoke to them the main things they seen was the auto start/stop not working and the RPMs while driving down the highway for example would jump around.

I just had the autostop eliminator installed on my 2021 Denali Ultimate with 3.0 Diesel, not worried about my selling dealer since they installed it for me.   I was a little hesitant to try to remove all the console trim to gain access and dealer said, no problem we’ll put it in for you.  It works great and exactly as advertised.

ok..i bought and installed the range for my 6.2. the only time the auto stop has activated is when I remote start. not sure if it activates immediately or after a period of idling but I have to push the start button once I get in.

Anytime you remote start you have to press the start button to “turn” the vehicle on. This is not part of the range device

Remote start will only run for 15min without extending the time. This has nothing to do with the auto stop/start.
