Exclamation Undo the Coast Brake

1999 f350 2wd crew cab 7.3 102000 miles
Is it possible to disable the coast brake. I would like to install a switch to turn it off/on when ever I liked. I live in Fla with mostly flat roads and when I'm just driving the truck I hate the coast brake. I.ve read a lot of the forums about the coast brake but have found nothing about how to turn it off. I thought about installing a switch on the red wire in the harness but was wondering would it throw a code when I turned it off or damage the transmission. I know the coast brake is there to help stop the truck but I don't like it.

coast clutches, they are what produce the engine braking effect. I don't know about disabling them, never heard of anyone trying it.

The coast clutch is only used if you disable OD or put the shifter in 2 or 1. If you leave the OD on and leave the shifter in D the coast clutch is off.

Could some one explain in better detail?
Are you talking about a "Banks" tranny brake---or something stock from Ford factory?
I'm confused

I think the coast clutches are located next to blinker fluid reservoir. Just above the muffler bearings.
