Towing a Keyless Fusion Hybrid
 
OK, does anybody have the straight procedure for a Ford Fusion Hybrid as a toad? The owner's manual says the car should be towed with tranny in N and ignition in ACC. Great for a keyed ignition, but what about keyless (push button start)? :banghead: I'd love to hear from someone with experience towing a FFH with keyless ignition. Thanks in advance!

Have a 2015 Fusion Titanium Hybrid with Roadmaster Falcon2 tow bar and Invisibrake. Towing it with a 2013 Itasca Navion IQ which is Mercedes Diesel powered. Tows great. Page 224 of the Owners manual says to start the vehicle by pressing the brake pedal and then pressing the Engine Start/Stop button until the vehicle starts. Press the brake pedal and shift the transmission into position N. Turn the vehicle off by pressing button once. Done and works great. This is one of the reasons I purchased this model and it is quiet and fun to drive while getting 45 mpg.

Make sure electric parking brake is off.

Thanks! I've gotten conflicting procedures from different FFH owners about pushing the button to place it in ACC mode. Some say to do it with your foot OFF the brake, though I don't see that anywhere in the manual. Other owners say they just push the button to shut down the car normally, which I assume means foot ON the brake. May I ask which way you do it?

FFH
 
I'm pretty sure my foot is on the brake because I am sure it is still on after putting it into neutral then I reach up and touch the button once then I release the parking brake. Not sure if it makes a difference either way. Going on a 600 mile trip on the 19th and wil be hooking/ unhooking at least 5 times. I'll pay closer attention then
