Hello, my name is***** will be helping you out! I have over thirteen year of experience in the automotive industry for numerous different makes & models. I enjoy doing what I do, it is my life.

When you say you want to disconnect On star, do you mean the services they offer, or physically remove the ON star system completely out of your vehicle?

Customer reply replied 26 days ago
I have already disconnected it with Onstar but I would like to disable the service so Onstar can not communicate with the vehicle
Customer reply replied 26 days ago
Is there a fuse that I can remove?

It is fuse f26da fuse block instrument panel

Customer reply replied 26 days ago
that is in the fuse box on the passenger side panel or under the hood?

understand, if other issues arrive such as no communication to engine or no start, it will not work.

Other options would then be disable the GPS and microphone as shown on attatchment

F26 is the fuse to remove. Will the green light on the mirror go off after it’s removed

I do not know as far as the light goes, (it should not be on), but it definitley disables everything shown on the attachment, which is the interface for on star

Just curious, I’m no mechanic by far. But is CIM which the fuse is labeled short for VCIM

its likely because I do not recall any CIM's on acadias. I know what VCIM is, but not CIM
