SOURCE: tow/haul does not work on 2000 chevy truck. whereis fuse?

I had a problem with my tow/haul button not working. I came to find out that the gear shift had cut the wire running to the button in two. You may want to check that.

SOURCE: My tow haul option is not working on my 2001

You are talking about the trailer option button on the end of the shift select lever ?
I would say a fuse, check there first, and there is also a relay.
As far as I can tell all this switch does is take the tranny out of overdrive, which you can do with shift lever manualy.
If you do not find the problem, you may have to replace the switch.

SOURCE: I have a 2000 chevy tahoe the tow/haul light does

I had the same problem and just fixed it today. My 2002 Silverado has what looked like a single wire coming from the shift arm. It is actually 2 fine wires inside it. Jim1440 was 100% correct with his solution. GM did not leave any free play and it was broke inside the little button sleeve. I removed the button to give it more play. Was then able to carefully strip back the fine wires, twist them together and solder them. That took care of it.

SOURCE: my chevy silverado 2000 tow haul wont work, light

check all your fuses. If your lucky you might find one the is blown and could be related If not fuse related then you need to remove the platic steering column cover. Under there at the end of the shift lever you will find two small wires that are for the tow haul button. These wires get brittle and break over time from shift level movement it seems. You will have to repair the broken wire and you should be good to go!

My 2002 chevy silverado tow haul mode is now working. The light doesn't come on and the overdrive stays on


You either have a bad switch or the wires have lost contact.
The tow/haul switch is part of the shift lever and is not replaceable without changing the shift lever. The electrical connector is located inside the steering column covers. These wires have been known to part.

Chevy 2000 silverado tow haul wont work, light wont come on and the engine light stays on all the time


I had that problem yesterday and researched the web. Found out underneath the steering column, take the bottom plastic cover off, there is a orange wire for the tow/haul. It's actually 2 white wires with orange covering. It was broke.
Splice the two wires back together and it works great...

Will not come out of tow/haul mode


It's the little wires that come out at the bottom of the shift handle inside the steering column cover. The wires usually break and in your situation maybe pinched together.
