I ended up going with auto stop eliminator. Little pricey. Well worth it, makes it so you can shut it off and leave it off after restarting but you can still turn it back on if you want.

Auto Start/Stop Disable - by disabling BMS (Battery Management System). I changed the BCM 726-48-02 to x0xx xxxx xxxx. Now auto stopstart menu says Engine On due to Vehicle Charging. Should be worried that my alternator is running all the time(I believe the new F150s have a smart alternator which only operates on demand)? What other hazards could be an issue of doing it this way ? Any thoughts would be great. Thanks in advance.

I would be. Forscan works to disable it by giving bad Info to the computer. I just got a plug in from autostopeliminator.com and now I don't have to worry about it

Has anyone tried unplugging the button on the dash? I read on another forum that if you can unplug the button, but have not tried it. I have a friend with a leased vehicle that does not want to re-program.
