Wait until a tune come out for it. Most tunes disable the auto start feature.

I found a line in the display between tac and speedo that has a box to check or uncheck auto start/stop on my 2017 2.0 titanium escape, but I haven't driven it since I checked the box to see if it deactivated. I live in the country with no stoplight's. will test it out next time I drive it and repost.

I thought this might do it but was corrrected on another forum. :)

google auto engine off ... it seems this turns off the engine after a preset period if left unattended

I've also seen that it can't be turned off due to it's EPA fuel numbers were calculated with it.

There is a (several) youtube videos showing how to permanently disable this 'feature' ((basically you add a jumper wire to the disable switch so the truck 'thinks' the switch has been pressed)) but don't let the dealer know you've done this :bust: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qf0dQEUg9VQ

note to self - it looks like the switch would be hard to gain access to in the '17 Escape without dismantling lots of the dash so make the best of SS :bang:

Saw this YouTube come across my subscription email. The video is based on a new F150 with auto stop/start. If your Escape has factory tow package, this trick should work as well.
