Ford Explorer: Towing / Trailer Sway Control (If Equipped)

Ford Explorer 2020-2024 Owners Manual / Towing / Trailer Sway Control (If Equipped)

WARNING: Turning off trailer sway control increases the risk of loss of vehicle control, serious injury or death. Ford does not recommend disabling this feature except in situations where speed reduction may be detrimental (such as hill climbing), the driver has significant trailer towing experience, and can control trailer sway and maintain safe operation.

Note: This feature does not prevent trailer sway, but reduces it when it begins.

Note: This feature cannot stop all trailers from swaying.

Note: In some cases, if your vehicle speed is too high, the system may turn on multiple times, gradually reducing your vehicle speed.

The system applies the brakes to the individual wheels and reduces engine torque to aid vehicle stability. If the trailer begins to sway, the stability control warning lamp flashes and a message appears in the information display. See Information Messages. Slow your vehicle down, pull safely to the side of the road and check for correct load distribution. See Load Carrying.

You can switch this feature off in the information display. When you switch the ignition on, the system automatically turns on.
