2019 Ford Transit Connect - Auto Stop Start

I have a 2019 Ford Transit Connect, it has the auto engine shut off at stop lights. Anyway to to keep the engine running at a light as when the light changes to green the transmission has a slight jerk when taking off.

A Google search seems to indicate that in your owners manual you can disable the Start/Stop function via the menu on the dash. But if like most of these systems it will reset each time you shut the vehicle off . Some vehicles will turn off the stop/start if you turn off the overdrive . There are videos that claim to disable the start/stop completly but that might void your warranty.
