Lightbulb ID tunes and Tow/haul issues

Switched back to my elite VGTSS and stock sticks.

Sent out for some new tunes.

Loaded in the ID xtreme street.

Truck ran great and went and beat on it for a couple miunutes.

The tow haul light worked and was all good.

Park the truck and let it cool down.

Come back out to drive it an hour or so later and the tow haul light no longer lights up on the dash. But it does go into Tow/Haul

Switch the truck back to stock, the tow haul light comes on and it works.

Then flash back to the ID tune and the same thing.

I am clueless

No clue. I wonder if the switch is going bad or if there is a bad connections somewhere? Chris

I thought the same man.

But why would it function perfect in stock file?

I know with all of my tunes, besides stock, the Tow Haul light does not light up, but thats only when its in 4 low. In 4 high and 2 high, it lights up.

My tow/haul light always lights up when stock or tuned. I believe there's an issue somewhere.

This is because the tow/haul function will not work when the truck is in 4x4 low.
