My owner's manual however only says to go through the transmission prep sequence and leave the key in ACC. It doesn't mention anything about pulling a fuse much less which specific fuse.
So, anybody else got a '98? What do you do before/during towing? Had any dead battery problems? Installed a fuse bypass?
At this point I'm just looking for feedback on the fuse question. I know I can convert to a bigger battery or run an auxiliary power line if that's what it comes to.
I don't have a 98 but a 04 and no by-pass fuse. She has a charge wire and never had a dead battery when towing.
