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.

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.

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!
