SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: 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.

2004 ford f250 superduty 6.0L dsl tow haul light flashing and doesnt want to go into reverse

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..

The lever "pivot" has broken the wire leading up to the switch. Replace switch (I believe you must purchase the entire lever)

Od light flashing and speedometer fues keeps blowing shifts very hard

The harness on the shifting arm to the OD/tow haul switch pinches and gets cut, this blows the instrument panel fuse. Don't know if this will relate to the hard shift. The shifter arm with switch and wire harness will need to be replaced.
