Has anyone tried unplugging the button for stop/start? I have heard that will disable. I was able to turn off in my 2019 edge, but haven’t heard how to in a 2020 Corsair....

This did NOT work on a 2021 Transit Cargo AWD.

This DID work on a 2017 Ford F150 XLT.

since ive had my focus the stop/start has never worked , if you want to do what i did then go to the gearbox on the end behind the 5th gear extension of the gearbox their is a sensor , remove the sensor then remove the cover (will need to be cut off carefully , their is a wavey piece of metal in it ,make this either short or longer by placing some wire around it and then replace the cap using some silcone to keep it water tight ) , after this you will get no warning or anything saying it is disabled but stop/start should no longer work as it can no longer get the correct reading from the sensor so it will never stop the engine ;D
i am the same as you just a forscan user still learning .
The search function is there for a reason use it.
no you can no longer pm me with your 1 or 0 posts so dont try.

The BdyCM module is missing from my Forscan. Has anyone disabled this on a Focus mk3 (2015) UK?
