First time towing

I have just had a Blue Ox tow system installed for our 2004 Chevy Cavalier. I understand it is towable .It is a automatic. When towing, I have to put it in neutral, turn the key off , but the key cannot be removed.

Is the ignition on and do the wheel stay locked? Can the front wheels still turn or are they locked?

If I remember correctly, it needs to go into neutral, key to first notch, and a fuse pulled. But check your owners manual. It should be there.

Found this after a brief internet search,, a pdf of a 2004 Cavalier Owner's Manual.

1. Set the parking brake.
2. Turn the ignition key to OFF to unlock the
steering wheel.
3. Shift your transaxle to NEUTRAL (N).
4. Release the parking brake.
If you exceed 65 mph (110 km/h) while
towing your vehicle, it could be damaged. Never
exceed 65 mph (110 km/h) while towing your vehicle.

Like glarnold stated: Turn the key to the first notch (dash indicator lights off, but steering wheel still unlocked). Towing our Jeep, i have to leave the key turned to the first notch. We have an extra key so we can lock the doors while traveling.
