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...

      How much is “big” savings in gas? Just got a car but it has a skip or thud when I press accelerator to start from light again so debating whether to turn it off

      VW Golf VII, 1,6 TDI, four years old, 100.000km (60.000 Miles), never had a single issue with the starter or any other part of the car. It still starts immediately after I turn the key and the start stop system works in an extremely effective and quick manner, with me putting a lot of strain on the system. I average about 3,9l/100km (60MPG US). I am never buying another car without Start Stop.

      Well then it's useless information! It's far better just to flick the switch off with stop/start.

      It's been proven that auto start/stop saves a minuscule amount of fuel. Modern cars simply dont use much fuel when at idle. However, engines suffer the most wear and tear at start up. So constantly shutting down and restarting is bad for consumers but great for car dealers that hope you buy a $60k truck every 5 years,

      Great, but you lose your backup camera and other features involving anti sway or roll. That and parking assist if it has that on your model. The raptor is a joke anyway. A V6 turbo. Come on. It needs a real engine. At least a 5.0 V8.

      Instead of all the bitching and moaning, just push the damn button on the dash if you don’t want to use the feature. Sounds like a bunch of lazy people out there.

      Are people really that lazy now a days that they can't just reach over and push a little button (stated at 1:40) to disable the auto start/stop feature? If so, then don't buy a new school/tech 21st century car and just stick with your old school/tech 20th century car. Most 21st century cars either have the auto start/stop feature or will most likely be going to it soon (whether we like it to or not) so, we're going to have to deal with it. Welcome to the 21st century!!

      The only time I’d use it if I leased the car and I would’ve turned the car back to the dealership before I need a new starter

      It will not save money.
      1 It is to meet federal fuel emissions standards
      2. The starter will go out sooner because the life cycle is being reduce, repetitive starting.
      3. Each time you stop the oil pump stops. Oil drains from the top down. Upon startups the cams are exposed too more wear
      4. The worst time for the a/c, water pump, alternator, starter, battery.......
      Yep you guessed it. Upon startup.

      This feature is for only one reason, increased in town fuel economy. On the fords, chevys, fiats, Benz, beemers, all of them is to meet the ever increasing mileage requirements. And it might become illegal to modify manufacturers emissions equipment, which this probably could fall under that umbrella.

      That’s what I though too but the developer of the system has a detailed video on YouTube showing the mechanics of it and it doesn’t use the ignition starter to restart the engine. Supposedly does not cause excessive wear on flywheel or starters.

      Who knows though. It’s a relatively new feature and only time will tell. In the meantime I turn mine off lol

      Doesn't using the trailer hitch tester thing disable the back-up camera?

      The auto start/stop feature is a BAD idea. The most wear and tear that happens in an engine is when you start it up. In the long run, this will wear your engine out faster. There is also no noticeable fuel savings with this feature. I will never buy a vehicle with this feature. If it was inevitable that I did, I would find a way to disable it.

      It doesn’t save you anything about creates havoc. Your red or red light your engine shuts off the oil goes back to the oil pan the fluid stop turning red light now turns green you have a sixth of a second I know not much but a sixth of a second to go that’s enough to get you hit by somebody else when you think you have the access to go. Then it goes to the batteries then it goes to the starter that car is constantly re-starting that’s horrible for your starter horrible for your engine horrible idea I understand the concept but we’re just not there

      Or you could just unplug one connector underneath the dashboard and the problem is solved...

      Yes that is one way you can do it but who wants to look at that there is a way simpler bypass underneath the steering wheel just above the pedals there are three plugs the third one down if you unplug that your truck will never shut off and if you want your truck to shut off all you would have to do is push the auto stop-start button very simple and convenient
