Chrysler engnineers have said not to use Tow/Haul to deactivate MDS. There is a sticky about it on here somewhere. The best thing to do is use the shifter to change to 5 mode. The transmission will shift normally and overdrive is NOT turned off.

here is the link to the chat. the engineers recommend not using the tow/haul button to disable MDS. like mentioned by Gator tapping your shifter over once so your EVIC reads "5" was their answer.
