we need to know a couple more things here to help you out.

like
1. does the light on the gear shift lever come on indicating that its in tow/haul mode?
2. does the CEL come on?
3. is the truck still going into overdrive?

some of the techs might want some more info but these are things that I know can help solve the problem.

Tow/Haul Problem

The light does not come on, the truck does go into Overdrive, and I am not sure what the CEL is. But, I can say, when I hit the button, nothing happens or changes. Thanks

Tow/Haul Problem

My truck did not come with trailer brakes so that can't be the problem, I hope.

Welcome to the site. For starters the 6.0 trans will go into overdrive with the tow haul button pressed. You cant disable OD that way. What tow haul does on the 6.0 is change shift points, increase line pressure, and keep the converter locked longer. If the tow haul light isnt coming on you need to have codes pulled
