I may be getting jerked around. I am not sure. The tech told me that by towing the car and NOT making sure that the ignition was in the accessory position, would cause the brakes to come on. I shut down the engine using the button and applying the brakes. The tech told me "shut down the engine using the start/stop button and DO NOT apply the brakes. Then push the button once more without applying the brakes to get into the accessory mode".
When towing in the accessory mode, the brakes will not be applied. I don't know what is right/wrong. I only know what he told me. I will do as he told me and Ford will pay for th enext set of brakes if he is wrong.
