Auto stop start issue, what if I just turn it off?

I just found out my car has an issue with its auto stop start. I always have it turned off anyway, so when it is turned off will I have any issues driving? By the way my car is made in 2018 not 2016, it didn't give me the option.

This will disable the auto start / stop feature - it will turn the dash indicator to a yellow color.

Raise hood and disconnect the hood open switch and leave it that way .. that's it. There is a plastic plug at the top right hand corner of your hood (you'll see it when you open it up) that apparently presses on a button that tells the vehicle to stop/start.
If you remove the plug then the sensor won't be tripped to auto stop/start
