I've been looking for a way to turn off the stop start feature permanently. I have a off switch on dash but would like to turn it off for good. Can someone verify if the stop start is disabled when pulling a trailer? I read that a guy with a Ford pickup plugged a tester into the hitch wiring making the computer think he was pulling a trailer and it turned off the S/S.

They make devices that plug into the OBD port but you will have to search for one that works for your model and year.

I to hate the ass! I tried trailer tester but it didn't seem to work 20 gx. What seem to work is disconnect the hood latch sensor. I tried for a day
and it worked. Plugged it back in, afraid might do
some harm in other systems.

Thanks for eliminating the trailer hitch wiring tester as a fix. I read somewhere that plugging something into the 110 volt receptacle like a cell phone charger or small night light would keep the S/S from activating. I don't have that receptacle but would like for someone that does to try it and let us know.
