OnStarJS

npm version Build Status Coverage Status

An unofficial NodeJS library to make OnStar requests.

Use at your own risk. This is an unofficial library.

Usage

Use the Get Account Vehicles request to see which requests your vehicle supports if you don't already know.

Sample

Use a random version 4 uuid as a deviceId. Generator available here.

import OnStar from "onstarjs";

const onStar = OnStar.create({
  deviceId: "XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX",
  vin: "1G2ZF58B774109863",
  username: "foo@bar.com",
  password: "p@ssw0rd",
  onStarPin: "1234",
});

try {
  await onStar.alert({
    action: ["Flash"],
  });

  await onStar.start();
} catch (e) {
  console.error(e);
}

Additional Configuration Options

checkRequestStatus

Default Value: true

When false, requests resolve when the API returns an 'In Progress' response. For requests that return data, this option is ignored.

This is useful because, with the usual request polling to wait for a "Complete" response from the API, requests will take much longer to resolve.

requestPollingIntervalSeconds

Default Value: 6

When checkRequestStatus is true, this is how often status check requests will be made

requestPollingTimeoutSeconds

Default Value: 60

When checkRequestStatus is true, this is how long a request will make subsequent status check requests before timing out.

Responses

For commands that return data like diagnostics or location, the data returned by the API is accessible via result.response.data

Development

  • Clone this repository
  • Install latest LTS version of Node.js
  • Enable Corepack using corepack enable
  • Install dependencies using pnpm install

Tests

All

Run both unit and functional tests

pnpm test

Unit

pnpm test:unit

Functional

These tests will execute actual requests to the OnStar API. They will perform a Get Account Vehicles request followed by a Cancel Alert request.

Because of this, the test will require actual OnStar credentials to run. To provide them, copy .env.example to .env and replace the placeholder values inside.

pnpm test:functional

Credits

Made possible by mikenemat's work in gm-onstar-probe. Their work describing the process for remote start enabled the rest of the methods implemented here.
