There is a damn button you push on the dashboard to turn it off.

Work around: I think you can plug a trailer light tester in the trailer light connector and the truck will "think" it has a trailer attached and that disables the stop/start.

You'll have to turn a key or push a button if you want to start a vehicle. You'll have to turn a knob if you want to turn the radio up or down. You'll have to flip a switch if you want the heater to blown......just warning you.

Pay attention to what the customer wants..... it’s not a well liked feature and ford should offer an on off function that stays as selected by the operator, just like the radio or ac...... When I want them on I turn them on neither one automatically come on.

This works but if you have backup sensors it disables them which makes sense since it thinks you would have a trailer connected.

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0019LYDLQ/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I ended up not using it and just ended up pushing the button every time I get in.

There's a video on Utube on how to jumper the button but to me it's not worth messing with.

H. Clinton or Al Gore.

And Obama.

President Trump and EPA Pruitt rolled or are in the process, of rolling back  the proposed 2025 Cafe standard back around 10Mpg.


http://dailycaller.com/2018/04/13/pruitt-epa-kills-obama-cafe-standards/

Hopefully Fords system does not go like the GM Pass Lock and get people killed in tight spots, and bring on law suits, like Gm had. If the GM's had a start problem you only got 3 start attempts and the anti-theft system kicked in. You then had to wait about 5 min. for a reset.

If a starter is having problems, and you stalled on the Fwy. for some reason, and needed immediate restart, would be my biggest fear.

Almost lost a close family member to a deal like that. Think stall right before rush hour, big city Fwy., bottom of overpass, 70 plus Mph traffic, centerish lane, still dark, no restart on a stall. If it was not for a Safety Clear truck near by and a good 911 operator, who knows how it would of went down.

If you had to push the button to enable the system and it stayed off automaticity  it would make a lot more sense to me.

Better yet scap it before it causes problems or deaths.
