The manual didn't mention anything about disabling the brake. It comes on automatically when you walk away with the key fob. I'm thinking that putting the car in neutral and leaving the key fob in the car may be the way to keep the bake off. I was hoping someone was toading one and could confirm my theory.

May be why the manufacturer doesn't endorse flat towing the vehicle.

Could be as simple as pulling a fuse, or installing something like this.
