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.

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.

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.

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!
