Tow/Haul Switch Not Working On 2000 Chevrolet Silverado


I have just bought a 2000 Silverado! The factory tow package does not work! Push the button and nothing happens! Checked fuses and seems good! Any ideas what my problem is? Thanks much!


Expert Reply:

The button you are referring to is the Tow/Haul button on your 2000 Chevrolet Silverado.

After doing some research I found that this is very common. It seems the switch will change the transmission shift cycles when you are towing or hauling a trailer. I found that many people have to replace the switch.

There are wires that run from the switch through the inside of the shifter and over a period of time these wires can break causing your issue. Form my research I found that people will remove the steering cover and find the broken wires and either splice them back together or replace the switch altogether.
