    Previously, after towing I could get the instrument cluster center gauge to go back to my choice. After a recent disconnect the Towing Grade indicator ALWAYS comes on upon starting engine. I have to manually set to choice (like compass or fuel economy).

    In the past, once I changed it, it would still be there when I restarted the engine.
    I've been through the manual. Am I missing an easy choice? Is there a simple "reboot"?

    Thanks!

    JP, you're such a genius! Stopping by the local Ford dealer got the guidance you needed. Congratulations.

    Had to "deactivate " the trailer, which I had tried to do several times. Even took the service manager a couple shots to get it freed. Now, two times since, it deactivates upon pulling the trailer wires and I've not had to do anything! Go figure.

    I have deleted the trailer after unhooking and still shows the the Trailer Status page on my dash.

    I have the Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring System (Trailer TPMS) installed which seemed to be the beginning of my problem.
