Just purchased a 2014 Traverse FWD -- any easier method than pulling the 50 amp under the hood and then pulling the floor plate behind the passenger seat to get to the two 15 amp fuses at the battery?

2010 Enclave AWD tows beautifully! Just installed a battery disconnect switch behind the grille that I can reach with my fingers thru the grille without raising the hood. Makes it much simpler than pulling the fuse. And, to confirm - does not delete radio stations, but does interrupt clock (!), no, does not rack up miles on the odometer. Occasionally, I will get a check engine light after towing. It resets after about one day of normal driving. (I believe it generates a code pertaining to low battery voltage.)

Good idea!

Do you know why GM says you have to pull both 15 amp fuses in the battery compartment?

I made my own, but they are available commercially as well.

Here's a couple sources:

google '50amp toggle switch'. I got mine from Amazon.com for $9.00 and some change. Make sure it is rated for 50amps. Don't need a fire in the toad!
