Towing

We finally bought a toad. It is a 2002 Chev Cavalier 5sp. My main question now is: do I have to leave the key on to keep the ignition from locking, and if i do will I need to disconnect the battery?

Read your owners manual. There should be a section for "recreational towing". Follow the instructions.

I don't know about the Chevy. I have had 5 Toads, 2 Fords, a Camry, a Saturn, and now a Honda. I just turned the key far enough to unlock the wheel, never had to disconect the battery or pull fuse. I did run the battery down once in the Honda, I left the Roadmaster brake system pluged in, while the van was parked for a week.

The ignition switch has a position that is one step up from locked and one step down from run. No need to disconnect the battery. If your idiot lights are on turn the key back one more position and make sure the steering is unlocked.
