A wire is broken inside the steering column. Remove the shrouding around the gear shift lever. You will find an orange wire that is cut from the wire being pinched when the gear shift lever was dropped into low gear at some point. Splice the wire (they are very thin) an you should be good to go.

There is an icon showing in the speedometer area it looks like a trailer and the car is driving weird like it's in a low gear


That icon looks like the vehicle has been put into tow mode.
When towing or hauling a heavy load, you can activate this feature with a button on the steering wheel, stalks or dash. Activating this mode tells the on board computer to modify the shifting pattern that is better for towing a hauling a heavy load often restricting the gearbox to the lower gear ratios.
  1. The Tow/Haul Light will come on when the system is on.
  2. If the light flashed steadily, have the system serviced.

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.

Electrical issue


Does the vehicle start an run ? If it does ,the brain as you call it is working fine . The check engine light has nothing to do with the PCM /ECM sensing problems .You probably should take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

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)

I have a 2000 gmc 1500 Z-71 my tow/haul stays engaged and i am unable to turn it off ...it also come on by itself...


This is only an idea-pull column shifter boot-you will notice a ORANGE wrapped wire which runs from the button on the shifter down toward the steering column. This is the Tow/haul wire. The way this is positioned on the steering column will cause the wire to be pinched when ever the steering wheel is adjusted. This pinching can cause a short or cause the tow/haul not to work at all. NOTE: Inside this orange wire wrap are two very fine fiber wires. Be careful and good luck

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.

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.
