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: the button on the end of the auto shift lever wont

The wire goes through the gear shifter and comes out the bottom under the rubber flex on the column, the wire tends to break there( orange covered wire} . You can try to fix it or replace shifter arm, there is a disconnect on the left side of column you will need to remove plastic cover upper and lower pieces they pry apart. Trace orange wire back to disconnect.

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!

What would cause my TAHOE TOW/HAUL mode to engage on its own?


You need to have a diagnostic scan tool hooked up ,glitch in one of the control modules or a wire in the circuit shorting to ground ! probably something simple but hard to find ! With a factory scan tool they can check the input signal to the BCM ,PCM .
Tow/Haul mode enables the operator to achieve enhanced shift performance when towing or hauling a load. When tow/haul mode is selected, the tow/haul switch input signal to the body control module (BCM) is momentarily toggled to zero volts. This signals the powertrain control module (PCM) or transmission control module (TCM) to extend the length of time between upshifts and increase transmission line pressure. Cycling the tow/haul switch again, or cycling the ignition switch disables tow/haul mode and returns the transmission to a normal shift pattern.

2004 ford f250 superduty 6.0L dsl tow haul light flashing and doesnt want to go into reverse


That light means that the shift points have changed on the transmission. This is to get better economy when hauling. If it wont stop flashing then there is a valve in the transmission that is bad or sticking. You will have to have it removed and overhauled..

I have a 2004 tahoe and this light came on i don't


That is the Tow/Haul indicator. Button on the end of shift selector was most likely depressed during shift or possibly a malfunction with the tow/haul mode selection system. (IE: Tow/Haul button)

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.

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...

Tow haul light on sierra 2002 wont come on


I'v heard that the tilt wheel causes the wire to break. Most likely the wire has been broken. Somewhat easy fix.
