I wanted to see if anyone could provide me some assistance or advice. I am getting various answers when it comes to towing my 2010 Taurus SHO AWD. The manual, 2010 Towing Guide and Ford Customer Service all say it is ok to tow the vehicle four wheels down with a tow bar. My local service manager and techs say that they wouldn't recommend doing it. It might mess up the PTU or other parts of the drivetrain.
Does anyone have any experience with this?
If it is possible, the manual says to put the car in accessory mode. This vehicle has the push button start and I can put it into accessory mode by pressing the start button without the brake but it seems like the accessory cuts off after a while to conserve battery power. Is there a way around this?
Thanks so much for your time and help,
