To disable the MDS, put your shifter from D to 5 (as displayed on the EVIC or cluster). With the console shifter, this is just one hit to the left. With the column shifter you need to push the +- button - one time.

Your trans will still shift up and down automatically through all the gears.

Tow/haul button is not the correct method.
My 2013 Ram was a little different. I have the column shifter and if I put it into drive and push the + button it does nothing; I have to push the - button and it will go into 1st gear, then press the + button to cycle it through the rears from 1-6. I usually leave it in 4th or 5th and this seems to work. If this is wrong please advice.
thank again for the good info
