How to kill OnStar

I need simple step by step how-to instructions on how to completely disable everything onstar in my car. Please help it's a 2006 malibu ltz and I HATE ONSTAR!!!! Thanks in advance.
P.S. If it matters the dealership upgraded everything so it's like the 2007 model.

I read a thread on here about it for newer models and it didn't make any sense to me. I don't want to just remove a fuse, I WANT THE WHOLE ONSTAR UNIT DEAD!!!!!! DEAD!!! DEAD!!! DEAD!!! DEAD!!! DEAD!!!

Re: How to kill OnStar

Uh, yeah . . .

I deleted your other thread - it just wasn't needed.

I merged your two posts on here into one - they were less than 20 minutes apart and no other posts were between them.

Help us keep this forum clean and orderly, please . . .

Re: How to kill OnStar

I Hate them for harassing me about renewing my "service", I Hate how even after you cancel their "service" their little black box keeps recording your location and driving habits, I hate how if you become a "disruptive influence" they made it possible for your car to be killed just by flipping a switch. I hate how their call center is outsourced to somewhere where no-one knows how to speak English except when reading from a script, I hate how they make millions by selling the information they take, and I Hate how they made it possible for your car to record your conversations when your not even on the phone. I Hate how they made it possible for cars to have bugs factory installed, And I Hate how they made it standard for most gm "cars" to come equipped with surveillance equipment. AND MOST OF ALL I HATE HOW THEY ADVERTISE IT AS A GOOD THING!!!!!!!!!!!!! It makes me wish for the good old days when the g-men had to bug your car themselves without the car companies doing it FOR THEM. IN FACT I THINK ONSTAR WAS A CIA-NSA-HOMELAND SECURITY FRONT FROM THE START!!!!!!!!! I WANT THE DAMN THING RIPPED OUT OF MY CAR BEFORE THE DEATH-SQUADS ASK IT WHERE TO FIND ME!!!

Re: How to kill OnStar

Dude, step back, take a few deep breaths. If OnStar bothers you that much, I don't want to try to imagine how the rest of life affects you. Life's too short to be that angry.

Re: How to kill OnStar

2 Choices as I see it:

1. Remove the fuse and let the On* backup battery die, then On* should be dead dead dead.
2. Buy a car without it in the first place.

It's almost the same as buying a V8 car, then pulling the plugs on 2 cylinders because you want a V6 instead. Coulda bought a V6 to start with.

But yeah, what he said - take a breath, dude!

Re: How to kill OnStar

thank you kindly. I didn't buy it I inherited the car. Where's the fuse located on my model? Also if onstar has it's own fuse and battery it must have it's own box as well, I would like to disconnect the box for good measure. Does anyone know the location of the box?

Re: How to kill OnStar

Here's a video on it that might help.


Also here's a photo of the onstar module on my 13, it's under the rear deck.

in the 10 models the module is behind the glove box..
