2013 Chevy Traverse

Looking at a new Traverse. It needs to have 3 fuses pulled before being towed. Has anybody found a "creative" way to do this? 2 of the fuses are under the rear floor and the other is under the hood - poor access for all three. Sure would be nice if there was a simple way to remove power from these three circuits without pulling up the rear carpet.

There are fuse switches that you can use to simply turn off the circuit. Search the forum for sources.

The 2013 manual say to pull those fuses to prevent battery drain. I'm curious if you add a charge wire from the Moho do you still have to do this step. Perhaps the Acadia folks could also comment as I think these are similar.

Thanks for the input. I did find the fuse switches and will see if I can make that work. Using the charge wire - if I understood posts in outer forums correctly that could be done but the car may then accumulate mileage when being towed and it may "confuse" some electronic. Still digging into that.

A remote control battery disconnect might be the simplest solution, e.g. the Battery Brain. But make sure the transmission will stay in neutral with no power - these fancy new trannys sometimes need power for their brain to know how to do the right thing. Maybe a call to GM tech support could get an answer.
