It's important to read up on if/how your model of Reney can be towed. Many must be towed on a flat bed with all 4 tires off the ground. Check it out now before you find yourself on the side of the road.

Okay, question time.

That button feature to disable the alarms' anti-jacking sensors is great and all, but what if you are not around.

Lets say you leave your Renegade overnight (for whatever reason) in a tow away zone. (We have many here in NYC). and the authorities come and tow your vehicle. That I know of, they don't bring in a flatbed, rather one of those regular Ford F-550 self loader wrecker tow trucks.

They may tow it a block or two away and might not do much damage, but they could also tow it miles away to the tow yard instead. Wouldn't driving that long without the sensor disable do damage?

No. It's just a button to disable the tow alarm. It'd just make noise all the way there 'till it times out.

Mystery button ?

I've owned my Renegade Longitude for almost 8 hours now :)D) and have a small query.
On the interior light control panel is a button which appears to show the vehicle with a tow hook behind it and the word 'off' , I've scoured the manual and as yet cannot find what this actually turns off ?

Can someone enlighten me ?

Cheers,
Peter.....

Thanks for the pointer. Indeed, the other thread advises that this is to disable the 'ant jacking' feature of the alarm during vehicle recovery.

tnx
