A tune with the feature to turn it off indefinitely.

You can probably disable it with Forscan

Both of these will work.

The FORscan will be the cheaper of the two options obviously. Buy the $30 OBD2 adapter and check out the following link:

Mr fix it ? Just push the button every time you start it up. What's wrong with that ?

You do forget to push the button sometimes and get startled when the car shakes to shutoff and re-starts up. Had the feature turned off by default from day ONE on my BMW. As soon as I get my F150 software and cable in order, this will be the first thing I code away.

Bunch a spoilt brats sounds like to me. Once you get used to pushing the button every time you start the truck, it will be automatic. I love the feature. Everyone who rides in my trucks are very impressed how easy it works and how unnoticeable it is and how it only shuts off under ideal conditions, etc.
