Tow/Haul not working

Anyone ever experience this? Noticed Monday, driving through the mountains, my tow/haul wasn't woking (no dash light and not down shifting w/converter locked). I wasn't pulling anything but still like to use this when coming down steep grades empty.

Tranny, other than that is working/shifting fine and no DTC's showing up on DD.

Any suggestions? I really don't want to take all my stuff off to have the dealer check it.

Thank you,

Mine is not working either. Had it in for another issue and they ordered a new button for the column shifter. I need to get it in so they can have it replaced.

Check your fuses if you haven't already???? Just a thought but it may tie into something esle that caused it to blow??

Trapit my tow/haul just quit yesterday. Is this under the powertrain warranty? If not how much is it and how do you take it apart to replace?
Thanks, Kevin

I'd be interested as well. I may just buy a new switch and replace myself.

Thanks,
