Disabling auto start/stop on your Ford Transit Connect couldn't be easier. This intelligent device restores your preference for auto start-stop automatically which eliminates the need to press the disable auto stop button after each ignition cycle.

Start by locating the diagnostic port in the driver's footwell under the dash of your Ford Transit Connect. On the backside, you'll find a 24 position connector that's similar in size to the one on the device (not all positions are wired on the factory plug). This module with the diagnostic port and connection on the back is known as the gateway module.

While the Ford Transit Connect is OFF, unplug the connector on the back of the gateway module and attach the Autostop Eliminator inline. While unplugging the factory connection, be careful not to pull the wires too hard. If needed, while holding down the release on the connector, use a flat screwdriver or pry tool to gently separate the connector from the gateway module.

There is an enclosure on the Autostop Eliminator device which houses the electronics. Once the main 24 position harness of the Autostop Eliminator has been connected inline to the gateway module of the Ford Transit Connect, use a zip tie or wiring tape to secure the electronics housing. Securing this housing to an adjacent wiring harness usually works best, but the exact location isn't important as long as the wires are not pulled tight or near sharp edges, etc.

Awesome. Easy Installation. Worked Great. No impact to my OBD2 scan dongle.

Ford Transit Connect 2022 XLT LWB passenger configuration. Remove the U-bracket that holds the OBD2 port under the dash. The U-bracket is attached to the underside of the dash by two easily accessible 8mm nuts that are on studs. Remove the nuts and the OBDC2 port and connected services module drops right down. Depress the connector tab on the backside of the OBDC2 port and pry up with a flat-edge screwdriver on the side opposite the tab to remove the connector. Easy-peasy.

Connect the Autostop Eliminator to the backside of the OBD2 port and to the cable that you just removed. Zip-tie the Autostop Eliminator module to the wiring, cut off the excess zip strap, and reinstall the U-bracket with the two 8mm nuts.

I spent more time using my shop-vac to clean the driver's side floor mat than it took to do this install. Tested the Autostop Eliminator and it worked perfectly. Now my Transit Connect comes up in "auto stop off" and I don't have to remember to push the stupid button. As a test, I also connected my OBD2 Bluetooth module (vLinker FD+) to the OBD2 port and ran, the "Torque" engine management diagnostics and tools app for any error codes. I didn't expect any and found none. Plus, all of the engine real-time data (RPM, temperatures, etc) came through as expected.

The Autostop Eliminator worked as advertised and was easy to install. I would highly recommend this product based on my experience with it. To the Autostop eliminator team - Thanks for a great product!

Great Product

Installed in a 2020 Ford Transit Connect work vehicle. I do lots of start/stop driving during the day and also have a 1500 watt inverter that has a loud beep every time the vehicle starts. Install was less than 5 mins. All wiring behind obd port on lower left of drivers footwell. One you trace the cable back to module the connectors make sense. All in all works great and you still have the option to enable the feature when you take it in for servicing.Great product, too bad Ford didn't offer this option.
