    Tow/Haul indicator light won't light. To be quite honest I can't now and never have really been able to tell the difference between tow/haul and normal operation, so now I can't determine if it is just the light that's blown out or if I have a problem with the tow/haul function

    TOW/ HAUL LIGHT NOT COMING ON.

    I DONT KNOW IF TOW/HAUL IS WORKING OR NOT.

    IS IT A TRANNY PROBLEM? HOW DO I DIAGNOSE A PROBLEM LIKE THIS?

    I rest my arm on the shifter once in a while and here an arcing sound just wonder if it's a loose wire???????????/

    My tow haul light won't turn on. I know the trans is not shifting when I hit the button. I checked all fuses and they are good. Is there a selenoid or something external that I could replace, or is this a trans rebuild? My truck is a 2000 silverado with a 5.3 liter if that makes a difference.

    Same problem it started before having new trans instaled. The trans expert says its the botton if you find out how to chage it let me know.

    Switch to tow haul. Does the transmission pattern change slightly?
    Should delay shift to higher speed. If so, then tranny probably is working. Do you notice any other transmission problems?

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.

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..

Th e tow haul button is so if your towing a heavy trailer its easier on the tranny when you hit the button you generally dont need to use it for everyday regular driving.

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)
