Whether you have a Bronco or a Bronco Sport, auto start stop is not a pleasant feature to have. Auto start-stop tech was once highly coveted. However, many soon realized that it is not as great as it was thought to be. Although it was marketed as the best way to improve fuel efficiency and economy, the truth is that it is not effective.

How Auto Start-Stop Works on a Ford Bronco

When you apply the brakes and bring your Bronco to a complete stop, the Ford auto stop system automatically shuts off the engine to save fuel. This is indicated by a light on your instrument cluster that’s an encircled A. When you release the brake pedal, the engine starts up again automatically. Note that it may start before you release the brake pedal to maintain vehicle performance, such as when the air conditioning is running.

If you find the Ford Bronco auto start-stop disable system annoying or if you prefer to have full control over your engine's behavior, you can disable it.
