Talking On Star

Has anyone disconected thier OnStar System and if so how'd you do it? If a fuse was pulled, does the fuse control anything else??

I guess by the responses that No-one has disabled On-Star. OK---when I get the car I'll post exactly how to do that.

I know on my AV there is a fuse.I believe that is all it is for.
Why disable it?

My insurance gives me 30% discount on liability for having it. $$$ in NJ.

Yes I know there is a long thread on this site; onStar is Big brother watching you. But in my truck club I have Seen members have there Rides stolen and not have the onStar activated. Lets just say things did not go very well.

My $0.02

OnStar is a fantastic service! I have been driving around with it for 5 years. The turn by turn nav is great and you also have remote diagnostic that identifies a potential problem as it happens. The car will email you once a month with updates on your oil pressure your brakes and air pressure on each tire. It is free for the first year. Not sure why someone would not want that?

If its like the other older versions find the On* computer box and hit it with a hammer real good.

If you want to do it more gracefully just cut the communication wire or ground if nothing else is tied into it.. You'll set off a code, but it should stop it. Just hit the button and see if something happens.

And you want to do this why exactly.................................

I guess if you are doing a huge mass reduction program and wanted to remove the OnStar module all together that would be one thing. But I can't imagine what is so bad in your mind that you just want to disconnect it.

You get all the features free for a year. And Turn by Turn alone is worth the price of admission.

Probably NOT going to do anything with On-Star, just wanted to see if it could easily be defeated.

Thanks for the ideas.

Paranoid is not a good state to live in. Just do not pay for the service if you do not want it. I personally think it is worth it for the security/Theft thing alone.

The basic package is $20 a month or $200 a year.

After the first year, when they call you, act uninterested and they lower the price quite a bit.

On-Star

This is just my take on this service, but it is wonderful. I have had it for 5 to 6 years. I've had to use in an emergency. Children in the back seat w/the truck running AND the doors locked with me on the outside!! Called ON-STAR and they had the doors unlocked in less than 3 minutes. What a great thing. I will always have on-star. I've used the turn-by-turn before. I had to get to a hospital that I never visited before so I called ON-Star and they were able to look it up for me w/o an address. You actually talk to a PERSON and then they download it to your car/truck. Talking to a person in this day and age is worth any cost. Why would you not want something this valuable. I also use the intregrated phone. It is pretty awesome - verizon service. I probably could go on with my experiences, but I think you get the gist of it.

Hit your on-star button and have them disable it!

my 2 cents : on star is good and bad. i dont want it , but it comes with the car. i will use it for the year and then i will not buy the service. its the same as if your in your hotel room and their are cameras in the room but they are not using it on you but how do you know that they can use the cameras if they are curious. even if you are not going to do anything in the hotel but sleep or whatever you do. those cameras can be on and you wouldn't even know it. also if the car gets stolen oh well. thats why we have insurance, plus you can replace the car .

Then J u s t d o n ' t p a y f o r i t. Why remove it? I've used mine for remote diagnostics in my truck when I had a problem. I've used the phone when I needed to and haven't been able to get a signal with my cell. I've used it to report other peoples accidents. Onstar was able to tell the cops where I was thus where the accident was.
