The ASS on the Raptor can indeed be disabled on every start cycle by pushing the dash-mounted button.
The issue is not one of difficulty pushing the button, the issue is that there will be times when the driver forgets or does not disable the feature, comes to a stop, and the truck shuts down.
I don't like the feeling of the truck shutting down unexpectedly and I and others chose to disable that 'feature' one way or another.
Having the A/C on full blast (most of the year here) also prevents it from shutting off. Also barely having your foot on the brake pedal will also prevent it shutting off.
Sorry for stirring up a worn topic-- yes I had used search and saw a plethora of ways to defeat the button. I did not want to pull apart my dash, pop buttons or short wires just yet. The question was more about the odd wire plugged into the negative terminal. I still have no idea what it does. Since all my other vehicles have never had an odd wire plugged into the negative terminal, it's worth knowing what Ford is up to here. If that was directly related to the Auto SS, then bonus. Clearly easier than de-constructing the dash. Anyway thanks....
Unplug the bottom plug on the module next to the brake pedal. Easy peasy

It's very easy to install and works great.
Watch the install video on their site.
I bought a "can opener" from 4Dtech. Very, very simple, and zero issues. Was "on sale" for a hunski but hey, it was driving me nuts.
Is that the ONLY thing this plug does? If so, super simple fix! Can others confirm?
BMW does indeed have a smarter solution than either Ford (or Porsche for that matter.) Porsche is like Ford in that you have to push the stop/start button every time you get in the car to disable it.
Anybody know what the wire OPs referring to is/does?
I used Forscan on my 17 disabling auto start and stop. Easy to revert back via the software.
