Need to know proper procedure for using Neutral Tow feature on my 1999 Ford Explorer, 4x4auto, XLT, 4 dr., 4.0L eng. so I can tow behind an RV with all four on the ground. Owners manual says I can and to see dealer for neutral tow.All I can find online is for 2001 and later and it says to push the 4x4auto button but I have a dial switch. Maybe it just means to make sure its in 4x4 auto and not 4L or 4H but it doesn't say that. I need to see the written instructions for my vehicle before I will pay to have the ECM reprogrammed for the neutral tow option. I have been to 3 different dealers and they pretty much don't know what I am talking about. They tell me I have to buy a neutral tow switch and the instructions are in there but I know they're not. the "switch is actually just an LED light that plugs into a female plug under the dash. It blinks when engaging or disengaging.
JA: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?
Customer: Thats not related to what I asked???????
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: please re read what I asked. I am asking for the procedure to engage and disengage the neutral tow feature. Such as turn engine
off, place ignition in accessory, press brake
put tranny in neutral etc etc.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
