Disconnect filament detector

Hello, I have an Ender 3 S1 Pro printer with a Sonic Pad and I would like to know which Gcodee line I have to add and where to disconnect it whenever I want.
I want to get the most out of the filament when I’m monitoring some prints.
I use Cura slicer with this Gcode:
G92 E0 ; Reset Extruder
G28 ; Home all axes
G1 Z2.0 F3000
G1 X5.1 Y20 Z0.3 F5000.0
G1 X5.1 Y200.0 Z0.3 F1500.0 E15
G1 X5.4 Y200.0 Z0.3 F5000.0
G1 X5.4 Y20 Z0.3 F1500.0 E30
G92 E0
G1 Z2.0 F3000
G1 X5 Y20 Z0.3 F5000.0

Just trying to figure out exactly what you are doing. Is it something you can just stick a piece of filament in the sensor and bypass it to disable it temporarily or something more complicated…??

The configuration for the filament runout sensor is not in the GCODE. It’s in the firmware or with Klipper in the printer.cfg. If you have a soldering iron, some wires and a switch you could also add a switch to bridge the sensor if you don’t want it to be in effect.

Wouldn’t M412 S0 work?

Hello, thanks for the response, searching in printer.cfg I found [filament_switch_sensor filament_sensor]
pause_on_runout: true, if instead of true I put false the detection would be deactivated, I will try to see what happens.
Thank you so much.
