One of the most infamous features on a Ford vehicle is the Auto Start Stop feature. Now that the 2018 F150 has this standard across all engine choices so there is no getting away from it! This video shows you how it works, and also how to get rid of it forever! Leave your questions below...

      Engine ON at all stops should be the norm or default mode. Engine OFF at stops should be the OPTIONAL choice. The amount of gas this stupid feature "saves" is insignificant. Another gov't induced idea that doesn't make sense - just like 1.28 gallon low flush toilets which you usually need to flush multiple times.

      I turned it off on my car when I got it, and haven’t touched it since.If the car doesn’t allow you to do that, get one that does.

      Does the F150 diesel also have that feature? If it does, I’d wanna permanently disable that auto stop feature because Diesel engines are difficult to start in cold weather.

      Auto companies tell us for decades that the most wear on an engine occurs during starting then someone gets the "brillant" idea to start adding a feature that shuts off the engine at every stoplight to eke out a tiny bit more fuel economy. Brilliant.

      NOPE, don't want start.stop in my vehicles. Fuel savings is minimal to the point of who cares. Had several rentals with this on it, made me crazy

      Cool video. Yeah I don't think you are saving any damn gas by auto start and stop. Someone wakeup someone over there at Ford and tell them that idea sucks balls!

      Who going pay for all the starter repairs and the fly wheel repairs? Because you’re damaging every time you start it turn it off start it turn it off!

      Why doesn't Ford give us a way to turn it completely off in the adjustment menus? Why is it not the customers choice?

      You need Forscan, a laptop, a connector cable, and Einstein’s reconstituted brain to permanently disable other cars. However, some guys make it seem easy.

      Save you big. It takes more gas to start a vehicle than it does to let it idle a minute. Not to mention wear and tear on starter motor. Its not off long enough to save you gas.

      This feature will absolutely result in at least one death in extremely cold areas. Completely fucking asinine

      The 4 pin tester does the same thing. Or you can unplug the button connector.

      It only saves gas if you are going to be stopped for more 10 minutes. There has been research on this. You are literally spilling gas out of your tail pipe. This is a federal mandate to lower carbon imprint. Raw gas doesn't count as carbon.

      There's a better way that doesn't cost anything. It involves unplugging the black module that controls two things: 1) trailer lights/signals, and 2) the auto-stop/start. The only caveat is to be sure to plug it back in if you're going to pull a trailer. In the F-150, this module is under the dash and just left of the steering column. There are three modules stacked vertically. The bottom one is the black one that you want to pull.
