Adding Tow/Haul multi function switch

I am in the process of adding the aftermarket V92 package to my 2015 Traverse LS AWD. I have purchased the necessary items and waiting for delivery. I had a forum member send me all the details he has uncovered on installs. The only thing is I cannot find any online videos or instructions on how to remove the center console area where the multi function tow/haul button goes. Anyone have experience with this or can point me towards a good instructional example? Thanks

Would rather have it and not need it than need it and not have it!

Greentraverse provided a nice how-to. Only thing I will add is the trim piece is awfully thin where it curves up next to the switches, I really treated it carefully and it went fine but if you are rough with it the piece will break.

Thank you all for the replies and thank you greenTraverse for the emails. I purchased the multi switch with Tascaparts.com $31.26 part #22824080. I bought this one even though I do not have the lift gate feature so that it fills the whole space where switches are located. And on Etrailer I purchased the hitch frame, looks very easy to install. Also, the appropriate trailer wiring harness and fuses. I have not yet purchased aux cooler for transmission nor the brake controller because I’m not yet towing anything substantial. As I get ready to make a camper purchase I will be buying those and installing. I will report back after install with hopefully pics and videos! Thank you all for the help!

So far as I'm aware, all the multi switch units all fit the same space; you didn't need to buy the lift gate one.

dont the 2015s come with heavy duty radiators? Regardless of whether you have the tow package?
I dont recall where they made the switch.
Earlier models had 2 radiators--- the heavy duty- and the regular.


Then they went to 1 radiator regardless of whether you had the tow kit or not.


If you already have the HD unit... I personally would not add an external cooler. It would simply introduce another point of failure in the trans cooling system.
Now if youre towing a huge trailer-- maybe.

For 2017, gmpartsdepartment.com lists two radiators, one with and one without "heavy duty cooling." So I don't think you are correct.

Up until shortly into the 2012 model year they had two fuse and relay boxes, one for tow package and one without. In early 2012 year, they went with the tow package version on all Traverses.

youre right.
Where the heck did I get that information from......
Im sure I read somewhere that folks didnt have to change the radiator.... as there was only 1 option...
im going to go look for my sanity..

Heres the thread where the question was brought up on whether GM stopped using 2 radiators in 2012.
