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.

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 have a 2000 chevy tahoe the tow/haul light does not come on and there seems to be no differnce in the shifting of the tranny


pfugi... I'm in the process of trying to change out my turn signal switch and that process requires pulling the plastic trim from on top and bottom of the steering column. I have the same problem that you do with the tow haul and after a few months of it not working I pretty much dismissed it as not a big deal, but I found the problem yesterday and I'd be willing to bet you have the same problem. Where the set of wires comes from the button on the end of your gear arm and into the steering column needs to have some flex to it as you shift the car and the extremely fine wire that they used simply snapped in half. There is absolutely no extra wire there and I'm deciding whether or not to solder on an extension or not while I have it open. I tow a camper and in Colorado quite a bit and I have just relented to manually shifting when necessary.

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.

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.

Tow/haul light wont turn off


I have found that on three silverado's there is a plastic clamp on the bottom side of steering column where the wires become broken and can short out. You have to remove the column covers to see this, it should be claser to the lowe dash trim panel area needs a shifter to repair unless you can fix that little wire!
