Towing jeep cherokee

I am setting up a 2014 jeep for towing, and I have a relay on the break lights. This causes the stability light to come on. Any ideas would be helpful, thanks

Blue Ox - BX8869 Bulb and Socket Tail Light Wiring Kit

Eliminates tapping into vehicle wiring. No issues should you have any electrical problem while under warranty.

You have a special relay that breaks (brakes) things?? What happens when the stability light comes on? If the relay is tripped when your supplemental braking system is applied, what does the stability light do? If it's just annoying, well, no one should be riding in the Jeep when it's towed. Need more information.

So far all I know is the light comes on and the 4 wheel drive is temporally un available. Back to shop Monday, I will post if they find a solution. Thanks to all for help.

The Cherokee does not have enough room in the tail lights for the additional bulbs. The bulbs can be used on the Grand Cherokee.

They removed the relay and now I have to pull a fuse. All works as it is supposed to! The fuse is the oddest I have ever seen. The jeep dealer had never seen one either. They found some at another dealer. It has three prongs instead of two!
