This video was filmed to show GM car owners who wish to disable OnStar
without impacting vehicle performance or operations other than the features
of OnStar. We recorded it without using technical jargon terms; we recorded
it just in layman terms.
My personal reasons for disabling OnStar is because I learned it was
draining my battery and my car did not start. For info check out my battery
replacement video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_FZS9IUta4
Once OnStar is down, the following will not work:
1.The built-in cellular calling feature
2.The OnStar Blue button to call OnStar for assistance
3.The Emergancy Red-Cross button
4.If Airbag deploys in an accident, OnStar will not be notified and help
will not arrive
5.In some vehicles like the Cadillac the voice to navigation feature will
6.The monthly emails for Vehicle Diagnostics
7.To have OnStar remotely unlock your doors or locate your vehicle if you
forget where you parked
8.Remote listening feature
The process is fully reversible and all the above features can resume
Additional info I found in my OnStar terms when I bought the car:
Per Onstar's Official Terms and Conditions:
THE INFORMATION WE GET FROM YOUR CAR INCLUDES THINGS SUCH AS DATA ABOUT ITS
OPERATION, ABOUT YOUR USE OF OnStar SERVICES, ABOUT WHERE YOUR CAR IS JUST
BEFORE AND DURING REQUESTS FOR OnStar SERVICE IN YOUR CAR, AND (DEPENDING
ON YOUR OnStar Equipment) DATA ABOUT ACCIDENTS INVOLVING YOUR CAR (for
example, the direction from which your car was hit).
You agree that we can, subject to applicable law, use any of this
information to: (a) provide OnStar services to you or your Car (including
sharing that information with roadside assistance providers, emergency
service providers, or others, as needed); (b) check or maintain your OnStar
Equipment; (c) provide information to the maker of your Car about the Car's
performance and to enable the maker of your Car to comply with law; (d)
help you or managers of fleets of Cars (if your Car is part of a fleet) to
maintain the Car; (e) evaluate and improve our service; (f) enforce this
agreement with you or others; (g) prevent fraud or misuse of OnStar
service; (h) comply with legal requirements, valid court orders and exigent
circumstances; (i) protect the rights, property, or safety of you or
others; (j) offer you new or additional products or services; or (k)
perform market research.
In my next video I will show you how to replace OnStar with off the market
device ($99) and all the features of OnStar will come back! You will be
controlling your vehicle from your cellular phone using text messaging and
1.The built-in cellular calling feature will work with off the market $99
2.The OnStar Blue button to call OnStar for assistance will start to work
except it will call a phone number of your choice
3.The Emergency Red-Cross button will call 911 and auto send your vehicle
location without your intervention. All you have to do is press the
Emergency Red-Cross button
4.If Airbag deploys in an accident, 911 will be contacted with your vehicle
location without your intervention.
5.Receive on demand Vehicle Diagnostics to your email
6.Remotely unlock your doors or locate your vehicle if you forget where you
parked right from your cell phone
7.Remote listening feature (spy feature) lets you listen inside your
vehicle from your cell phone
The above features will work from your specific cell phone ONLY so it is
Let me know if you have any questions and Off course this video comes

2013 Chevrolet Volt - OnStar Diagnostic Call
Shortly after experiencing difficulty using a public L2 Charging station, I
noticed that the MIL was being illuminated on the dash. I called OnStar and
had them perform diagnostics on the vehicle. I decided to wedge the 5D
MarkIII between the passenger headrest and the headliner to record the call
in case anything interesting developed. I found the call interesting and
decided to share. The DTC descriptions listed in the video are the actual
ones listed in the factory service information. The descriptions that
OnStar provided are simply more generalized for public consumption.
After returning home, I charged the vehicle overnight to a full charge and
the MIL went out and all is well.
OnStar made my life a little easier today.
