Make sure the tow bar, ball coupler and safety chains are all secured.

FRONT WHEEL DRIVE VEHICLES MAY HAVE TO GO THRU THIS PROCEDURE: To tow and unlock the steering wheel on your vehicle, you must put the ignition switch in the first position on the steering column. When you do this, the odometer and transmission indicator will light up on the dashboard and could drain the power from your battery while towing.

After you have finished towing, simply open the hood, open the fuse box, and push in the memory switch. Everything will be back to normal, with the exception that the radio clock and
stations will need to be reset.
