F150 engine quit while under way

My 2018 F150 engine stopped running while I was driving through a parking lot today, a message appeared on the driver information screen that mentioned the auto stop feature. It told me to put the truck in Park and restart. I did and continued to drive without further problem.

Glad I wasnít on the road.

Later on another trip I deactivated the auto stop and the radio came on.

A quick web search didnít show anything related.

2.7L V6 Ecoboost engine.

Any ideas?

F150 engine quit while under way

Just its normal use is dangerous in my experience if I donít remember to turn it off before driving.

Pulling out of my driveway or making a left turn while waiting for an opening in oncoming traffic that momentary lack of ďgoĒ can get one clobbered.

But today it quit while moving!

No idiots illuminated. I donít have a scan tool. I will be taking it to Ford dealer for oil change and a recall.

Over 25,000 miles on mine. Stop/Start always enabled. Has worked flawlessly. Only stops engine when I firmly push the brake.

Sorry do not have a Ford. You were actually in motion, driving through a parking lot and the motor just quit?

Delco - This is off topic, but I see you traded from a class b to a travel trailer. What are your reasons for switching from a class b to a tt?

Sounds like an electronic box problem. Electronics are the only weak point on Ford trucks.

Your engine is showing a very dangerous ailment. If you are turning across on coming traffic for instance, you can put your self in a very dangerous situation. Get it resovled ASAP.
