There should be a button on the middle top part of the consul that allows you to turn this off and on. Forscan isn't needed for this operation.

According to the resident expert on F150 Forum, the codes are 99% identical on 2015-2018 Ford F150's.

Yes I have a 2018, I used the disable start/stop and remove message mod and it worked fine. I didn't use the disable button mod so it still toggle the light on the button itself but doesn't seem to toggle anything with start/stop because i believe it's total disabled. The start/stop button light is off at startup so that is really nice.

I just did the start/stop disable on my 2018 F150 and it worked great. I only did the disable start/stop option alone and a small icon appears on startup on the lower left indicating it is not active and then disappears a short while later.

Worked for me on 2018 F150 Lariat... Haven't had any issues. So nice not having to mess with it anymore.

I disabled auto start stop on my 2018 F150 Lariat and it works great. The only thing is now in the auto start stop message page it shows that it is off due to battery charging, or something like that . I don't remember the exact words.

This may be what you were looking for (from the 2015-2018 f-150 spreadsheet)

Auto Start/Stop Disable
BCM 726-48-02 x0xx xxxx xxxx (Disables Auto Start/Stop)
FCIM 7A7-01-01 xxxx x0xx xxxx (optional - disables switch - the button to turn off)
IPC 720-01-01 xxxx 1xxx xxxx (optional - disables stop/start message center in the trip/fuel IPC menu)
