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: tow haul mode wont work

My tow haul on my 2001 sierra started acting up intermittently about a year ago and then quit completely. I found the problem today, the wire at the base of the gear selector has broken off. On the 2001 simply pop the tilt lever straight out (toward the driver's door, no screws - it just pulls out with a little tug) and the bottom of the steering column cover snaps out of place (it's not screwed in either but my chilton's manual says some of the other years are). I just soldered the wires and covered with a heat shrink. It's working as good as new.
It looks like the wires were tight even upon manufacture and it sounds like a common problem according to all of the similar questions. I re-routed the wire to gain a little free play but not enough to interfere with any of the ignition / gear shifter mechanisms.

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.

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!

Can't turn the tow/haul lite off


The wires to the tow/haul button break at the end of the gearshift under the column housing cover. You might be able to splice them back, but most likely you will need a new shift lever.

The tow haul light on my 2000 tahoe will not turn off


there are like 4 small wires in the lever and one is probably not connected . sounds like when you pushed the button it might of lost contact so you cant turn it off. try removing the power wire off your battery then re-connecting it. this should re-set your computer thus not showing you in tow haul mode untill you push it again.

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.
