Can anyone tell me how to install a tow/haul switch on my 2005 C5500?
Thanks.

Tow Haul....????

We have 2006 Chevy c4500, We have a switch on the Dash that locks out the 5th gear or overdrive and doesn't have a tow haul mode like the 3500 1 tons. We never really lock out the overdrive. GBY..

No such thing on a 5500.

I understand the C5500 does not have a tow/haul switch and the transmission is in tow/haul all the time. I would like to install a switch so I can take it out of tow/haul. I believe this would improve the fuel mileage.
Thank you.
Wayne.

Without the converter locking up like it does in the tow haul program you would generate too much heat in the trans with weight of the kodiak. I have seen my trans temp get much hotter if I forget to hit tow haul an pull a load.
