Anyone Tow a Fiat 500?

i moved to florida and got rid of my gas sucking jeep traded it even up with money back from the dealer on a new fiat 500c, was told that i need to leave the key on whial towing the car behind the motor home. so i have towed the car twice with the key on and after towing the check engine light comes on. i have to keep taking it back to dealer for it to be reset, nothing comes up on their computer as to why it is on. was wondering as i have herd that i can tow my fiat with out the key on as there is no steering wheel lock, only reason to have key on is for the 12volt power port for the break control. i can run a line from the battery to power the break controller if i can tow with out the key on. anyone out there can help me figure this out?

ID:	67599manual transmission Fiat 500 Pop. I do not have a supplemental braking system since my state does not require one due to the low weight of the vehicle. My DP doesn't even know or care it is back there. I do not turn the key on. The car does not accumulate mileage while because of this. Simply place the transmission in neutral and go! I do have both a rear view camera and all wheel TPMS. This car is fully factory approved for four down flat towing which is called recreational towing in the owners manual.
