Anyone know how to disable the auto start stop on a 2018 Ford Escape?

Not sure on your car, but at least on F-150s, FORScan cannot disable ASS alone, so I'm almost sure it'd be the same on your car. Instead, what FORScan can disable, is BMS (Battery Management System), which in turn disables ASS. And it's on the BCM module. I didn't want to do that. by the way, you can do exactly the same thing by removing a small connector from the battery, which your car may or may not have it. Didn't want to post the BCM address from my F-150 because it might not be the same code. Just wanted to comment that you just can't disable ASS alone. The good news for my truck is it has a switch, and using sport mode automatically disables it, so not a big deal to me. Good luck.

What else happens when you disable the battery management system? Surely other things are dependent on it?

Btw, elptxjc IS WRONG, Forscan CAN disable the auto start stop on the F150. lots of folks have done it.

No what he said was it can’t disable Auto start stop alone. It disables the battery management system which causes the auto start system to stop working.
