Does the Steering Wheel On a 2019 Ford Escape Need To Be Unlocked While Using a Tow Dolly


I want to tow using a dolly and Ford says that is OK without restriction. I need to unlock the steering wheel. This is a keyless ignition, how do I unlock? THANKS


Expert Reply:

If you are dolly towing a vehicle then the steering wheel actually needs to be locked whereas if you were flat-towing a vehicle the steering wheel needs to be unlocked. That said, I do not have any write-ups on how to do this. Generally speaking, you will depress the brake pedal then push the start/stop button while simultaneously turning the steering wheel left and right but if this does not work then you will just need to reach out to Ford.

If you don't already have a tow dolly, I recommend the Demco Kar Kaddy SS Tow Dolly part # DM9713045.
