2004 Ford Sport Trac neutral tow kit instructions

I just had the Ford factory Neutral Tow Kit installed by the local Ford dealer but the instruction sheet they put on my visor does not match the way it works on my car.

Can someone please help be get the sequence in the right order?

Here's what I think the service guy told me.
1. Start car in park with foot on brake
2. Push brake pedal.
3. Shift into neutral while pressing brake.
4. Shut off car
5.. Neutral Tow light will start blinking
6. Hold brake until light goes solid.

Leave car in neutral and tow.

I'm not sure about this....can someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
4WD switch is 2WD/4HI/4Low

Insert before step 5

Mine may be different but I have to press and hold the 4X4 button until the light blinks 5 times then stays on solid.

JOC1212. What you listed is the same instructions for my 04. On my 04, the 2H-4H-4L is a rotary dial. Other models and I believe later model Sport Tracs had a push button which required holding the 4H button.
