Haha, no need to apologise. I wouldn't want to pay $100 for one of those silly OBD things either. At least my links may be useful for anyone who wants a decent OBD tool. I wouldn't buy anything but the OHP one or Proscan in a modded ELM327 for programming, and the OBDLink EX is the tool recommended by Forscan for their software. I know some have the bluetooth OBDLink MX which has excellent reviews but is twice the price.Sorry I specifically mean this thing, as in spending 100 just to disable auto stop and start:

I actually do have a diagnostic device in my odb2.
It is possible to disable stop start with Forscan. Not sure how as mine has a mind of it's own and as mine is a diesel with dpf it's handy having the S/S feature because if I stop and the S/S doesn't kick in it makes me check my instant mpg which tells me if it's regenerating the dpf or not.
