#299 of 303 Towing Feature Not Working
Jan 01, 2012 (3:22 pm)
I have a 2003 2500 6L. I have noticed that while pulling my boat in trailer mode it does not seem to downshift correctly. When going uphill it stays in the high gear and I lose about 10mph. If I take my foot off the accelerator and then back on again it will downshift but otherwise will not.
Any ideas? I use the towing mode and the light comes on the dash to show that OD is disabled.
#300 of 303 What is my rear axle ratio?

This question is for gmcustsvc:
My 1998 GMC Sierra's VIN is 2GTEC19MXW152296456. From that can you tell me what the rear axle ratio is, and/or what the towing capacity of my truck should be? Thanks...

Glad you found it, mdetreville. I did pull your VIN up in our systems here, though, and see that you have an open safety recall on your vehicle (pertains to the electrical outside rear view mirror switch). I just wanted to make sure you knew it was there, and if we can help you get an appointment set up to take are of that, let us know via email (socialmediagm.com).
All the best,
