Flat tow issue - Cherokee not alone

Appears Equinox and Terrain have the same problem and GM not aware of it. Sound familiar?

Does sound familiar. In their case though it sounds like some believe leaving the fuse in powers up the Equinox electric steering and eliminates the problem. Adding a charge line may be all that's needed.

In the 2014+ Cherokee the engine had to be running to power up the electric power steering. Engineers had to come up with a way to power the electric power steering without having the engine running.
