    Mine is basically doing the same thing. When the transmission needs to shift into overdrive, it stops pulling and the motor will rev until it kinda jumps and the tow/haul indicator will begin flashing. I can then drive fine only it feels like the truck will not go into O/D and it turns about 1000 RPM higher at 65 mph than it did before. It had this problem for a week and mysteriously wuit for a couple of weeks and then started again.

SOURCE: MY TOW/HAUL BUTTON ON MY GEAR SHIFT WILL WORK FOR

The lever "pivot" has broken the wire leading up to the switch. Replace switch (I believe you must purchase the entire lever)

SOURCE: tow haul flashing,shifts like the tow haul buttons

If that light is flashing that means there is a problem with the trany. If you continue to drive it, it will damage the trany. I suggest you get it into a trany shop as soon as possible. I guess, I would take it to a private shop, that specializes in automatic transmissions, instead of taking it to a dealer.

SOURCE: transmission tow/haul mode

Hi, the problem is when you are tilting the steering wheel all the way up it's putting to much tenstion on the wires that come outof your shifter that run to the tow/haul button. i am 99% sure your wires are disconected. rewire them and add some extra wire so next time there will be more slack in your wires.

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..

My check trans temp light is on &tow haul light flashing


What vehicle is it on? The super duty pickups had this problem and it is a bad temp sensor in the transmission. It is easy to replace you just have to drop the tranny pan. The gasket is reuseable.

03 f-350 trans hot


I would begin by checking the transmission fluid level. If it's ok, then that means that your transmission has overheated. Have it checked for overheating damage by a professional transmission shop. If everything checks out ok have them add a secondary transmission cooler. This will allow the transmission to cool down faster under heavy hauling conditions. Hope this helps, good luck!
