Start/ Stop button removal?
 
How do you remove the start/stop button? i searched the forum and couldn't find a thread with directions. i tried twisting it left and right and it wouldn't come out.

Pry it off with a blade or screwdriver at the bottom.

It pulls off with your fingers...

You should be able to get it out with your fingers (not twisting but prying). However, if that does not work for you, I keep a small plastic spoon in the center console. The main thing is that you do not want to scratch or damage the wood trim that surrounds the Start/Stop button. The white or clear plastic spoons that you get with a fast food meal will do the trick. The rounded front lip of the plastic spoon is an almost perfect fit for the space between the button and the trim.

I recommend a hammer, grey duct tape, 10ft of 10-2 electrical wire, a shop vac and a cup of chololate jello pudding! :D.

Or you can do what others suggest and pry it off with a small screw driver!

The spoon suggestion worked great. Thanks for the help.

Or use the car key that pops out of the remote. Probably even easier than having to go and get a spoon.

I'm going to try removing the start/stop button my Jeep as well. My battery died and had to be recharged and I want to make sure that this vehicle is starting and stopping properly. I think that it is also a good idea to have some spare 2032 FOB batteries on hand just in case if they die.
