Negative battery cable disconnect for towing

Recommended Posts

To flat tow my 2018 Edge, you need to disconnect the negative battery cable which is very difficult to get to. Are there any  after market products that will make this easier?

Not that difficult.  There is a bolt or screw holding a clamp at the bottom front of the battery.  Remove it and the battery slides forward so you can access the negative cable.

https://www.etrailer.com/Best/1453/Ford/Edge/Accessories_And_Parts/Auto_Battery_Disconnect?year=1949  It disconnects the positive cable since negative is so difficult to get to.  I  have one  on my ST and several on the rv forums use it also.  It takes more than a bolt removal to move the battery far enough forward and even then not enough room to work. Shop around on price some are better than E-trailer but they will  price match.
