Can you drive a SUV towing a boat with 2 passengers ?

if the passengers are using the seat belts and are inside the car-- yes
there can be no one in the boat being towed and all items ( cooler , rods , seats etc) have to be restrained with a device like a cargo net
remember that there may also be speed restraints on towed vehicles

How to fix my tow connector on my lx470

On American SUV's, the Manufacturer includes a packet containing the extra flashers and harness "Pigs" to connect the rear of the SUV to the front power boxes.

You may be able to find this packet in the box or jacket that comes with your Jack. It is like they should label "some assembly required" on all Vehicles with Towing capabilities. Vehicles do not come with the Towing ****** or the trailer Ball either.

Since some trailers have Electric braking systems, most Manufacturers have left off the connections and provide the Owners with the packet containing underdash fittings and Extra heavy duty Flashers and turn signals.

If you look and have a cover on the Tow socket, the flap will have symbols for the function of the various terminals on the plug. Use a Voltmeter to test the output of each terminal when the turn signals or brakes are on. Depending on the number of terminals in the socket, there may be a power terminal used to recharge a boats' battery or a campers' battery

I have automatic 2001 Ford Explorer sport trac bought from USA, the car did not run since i received it because it does not move when i put the level to D nor R position.

What you can try is to start the vehicle, put it in Neutral, press on the brake, and while doing that press the 4x4 Button and hold it for 5 seconds. If this does not help, you will need an Owners Manual for Year specific information.

You want to reset your Transfer case from being towed to Run. It sounds like your unit was switched to the current Mode for transit. Another idea is to contact the Tow company who delivered it for advice on this setting. Even if you used a Tow dolly yourself, I imagine the towtruck drivers would need to know how to switch this setting when they tow an Explorer themselves.

This Tow mode is used to enable towing the SUV behind a Motorhome. The Automatic transmissions need lubricant on the seals or they will burn up. The Tow mode disengages the Transfer case and keeps some of the parts from turning. You need to look at Year specific information because of the difference in Automatic transmissions. For a short time, there were engine options which included a different transmission for better mileage with bigger engines.

The older models needed a Tow dolly and the newer models can just use a Tow bar on the frame.
I hope my opening statement fixed your problem. Should you want to Tow your SUV behind another vehicle, you will need to use the Tow feature.

What Is a SUV

SUV is the widely used and known acronym, for Sport Utility Vehicle. At first conception, an SUV was a vehicle that combined the towing capacity of a full-size truck with the passenger and storage capacity of a minivan. However, as consumer demands have changed, so has the SUV. Many manufacturers now focus on fuel-efficiency and driving and riding comfort, rather than towing capacity.

The typical features of an SUV include;
1. seating for five to seven,

2. high seating and road positioning, roomy interior,

3.Non-dedicated trunk space,

4. High engine capacity and 4 wheel drive capability.

Though the SUV was originally designed to be an off-road vehicle for sporting purposes, their popularity has spawned several different breeds, including the luxury SUV.
Like cars, the SUV has different classes and sizes. The mid-sized SUV, which typically seats five, is the best-selling variety in the United States. During the SUV’s height of popularity, the Ford Explorer remained the top-selling model. The compact and full-size SUV appeals to many consumers equally, but for different reasons. The luxury SUV has the same features as standard class models, but contains upgraded interiors and trim packages typically associated with luxury model vehicles, such as leather interior.

When next you hear the name "SUV",i believe you now know what they are talking about.

Does the car 2006 Buick Rendezvous towing hook?

If your asking if it came standard with towing hooks the answer is no. Although there may be Dealerships that would add them if a customer asked. It would undoubtedly be expensive.
If you are asking whether you can add them the answer is maybe.
According to the link I included. Towing hooks are not available. However if you are willing to spend the money there are options available but it will mean modifications to your SUV. It will also mean money out your pocket. You may be able to have added supports underneath and attach tow hooks there.
Personally I think a wrap around brush guard with tow hooks and trail lights is just what the mechanic ordered.
Hope this helped and good luck.

I want to tow a 1999 Buick Regal behind 2002 Ford Explorer (4.0L V6). I am thinking of using a tow bar. Tow is 1,100 miles - one time. See any problems? What tow bar would you suggest?

Not a good plan. Rent a car dolly from u-haul or somebody.
The reason is that the wheels will move certain internal parts of the transmission that need lubrication, but that comes from the engine running the pump. That is why some towing companies that have to tow cars with the drive wheels on the ground will sometimes leave the engine running and the tranny in neutral, but that won't work for long distances
