This is from a Ford tech, says it will not throw a code or trip any light. Simply unplug the solenoid and tape it up the plug to prevent damage, maybe wrap the ends up to protect it. See this PDF for locating the solenoid: http://iihs.net/fsm/?dir=941&viewfil...20Solenoid.pdf Once you jack the car up it shouldn't take more than a minute or two to do it.

Leaving the connector unplugged will throw a code, specifically DTC P0803. Installing a 50watt 6ohm resistor across the unplugged connector will provide the same electrical load as the skip shift solenoid and will fake out the computer (no codes) The resistor is the same used to place a parallel load on LED lights (see picture). They are less than 6 dollars on eBay. I soldered a few thin solid wires to the resistor ends, stuck the wires into the connector and shrink wrapped the whole thing to the end of the wiring harness. The light still illuminates but the lockout no longer interrupts shifts. From http://www.stangnet.com/mustang-forums/threads/how-to-disable-skip-shift.828582/

Unplugging the connector will not throw a code or cause any problems. Did it on my 2012 GT
