I've followed all of the threads on the base Explorer forums about adding the tow mode button for engine braking and so forth, and it is super straightforward: pop the panel off, unplug the tow button harness from the dummy plug, plug into the tow button, have tow mode.

Well, my 2014 PIU doesn't have that harness or plug.

How do I add the dash harness to enable the button? Where does it plug in? Does the PIU accept tow mode or is that not even programmed in? None of the parts I've bought are new, so I'm not out a whole lot of money yet.

I don't know the answer but guessing if there is not existing an harness that the vehicle may not be programmed for it. Not sure if this is a feature that can be activated with Forscan or not since it appears to tie into other systems as well.
