Disabling auto start/stop on your Transit-250 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. 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.

With the vehicle 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, 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.

Easy to install

It was my wife's job to push the button whenever we were in a city with our Transit 3500 RV van.

I saw this on Motor Trend TV and thought why not try it out to eliminate the hassle.

I read the review about using a mirror and laying on your back to get to the connection.

But I'm not so limber anymore so I took off the face plate below the steering column and noticed the OBD is held in with 2 small nuts. I used a 8mm socket and removed the OBD and was able to install the Autostop Eliminator without laying upside down on the floor board. It was simple plug and play with 1 zip tye to hold the electronic box to the harness.

So now when I turn the van on it stays in the off position, but can still push the switch if I wanted to auto stop.

My wife and I thank you for one less thing to worry about on our travels.

Omg. What a relief!

No more annoying engine stopping. I never remembered to push the button. Works! Install behind the diagnosis port under the steering wheel. Lay a mirror on the floor, light up the area, Put channel lock pliers on the sides of the plug, push in center tab with a tiny flat screwdriver, then wiggle off plug. Snap on the new Auto Stop Eliminator between and zip tie up to secure in place. No more engine shuttering. What a relief! Buy it, it works 3 year guarantee.
