๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ Beat me to it. I've mostly been making small SYNC 3 alterations and studying the catalog of items before making any big changes.

How long have you had it turned off? And are there any incidentals you have noticed yet? (DTC Code, indicator on the button, etc...).

Commenting so I can find this later.

What exactly does "disabled" mean in this usage? You removed the feature, or it now defaults to off when the car starts?

There's also something called a Can Opener from 4Dtech that you plug into the odb port and it disables it without flashing anything. Nice to have options.

No issues yet only a message in the autoss screen on the dash which I never look at. The button works but is pointless due to autoss being disabled. Still playing around to see if the button can reactivate autoss without a computer

I've seen that but this option is much cheaper๐Ÿ’ต

Cool. I've got some good backups of all the As-Built settings at this point, so I'll likely give a shot myself in the next few days. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

I would like to just default it to being Off. But still turn the feature back on if I needed to. Only thing I've done so far with Forscan is add my heated seats and wheel the sync screen.

Then this might be the solution for you. I don't have any experience with it myself, just sharing.

EDITED: I remembered I had one of these with the same specs so I tested it this afternoon and it does NOT keep the autostart from turning off the engine

Or way more cheaper...it was reported here last December that you can just plug an LED nightlight into the AC power outlet and the fact that the inverter is doing something keeps the engine running.

Made the change over the weekend and I can confirm that for the most part it is a "silent" change. No DTC codes are generated, and as you have mentioned, the only indication that it has been disabled is in the dash display when you first start up and then whenever it would have engaged while driving around town (the rest of the time it doesn't display at all).
