What does the trailer button do on the end of the column shifter?

I believe that the trailer button changes the shift points in the transmission so that the vehicle stays in low gear longer during periods of high stress (i.e. acceleration or prolonged uphill climbs).

Verify this with a GMC mechanic, but in the absence of an answer from someone who knows for sure, I would use the button when pulling a trailer.

AnswerIts called tow/haul mode. When towing or hauling something use this it changes the rpms so its easier on your motor and trannie when towing or hauling!

Is Benjamin button a true story?

No, it is not a true story, nor is it based upon one. It is merely an exploration of an intriguing concept in narrative form.

Francis Scott Fitzgerald, the author of the story in question, wrote:

This story was inspired by a remark of Mark Twain's to the effect that it was a pity that the best part of life came at the beginning and the worst part at the end. By trying the experiment upon only one man in a perfectly normal world I have scarcely given his idea a fair trial. Several weeks after completing it, I discovered an almost identical plot in Samuel Butler's "Note-books."

What kind of authors are Ernest Hemingway and F Scott Fitzgerald?

What is the relation of the clock and Benjamin in the curious case of Benjamin button?

The relation between the clock and Benjamin is that time can run in reverse will the world goes forward. Benjamin who is born old his time runs backwards just like the clock does.

Old answer:

As for as I know, there is no relation. If you have seen the movie, it doesnt even take place in London. Its just a "curious case" in which Benjamin lived his life. Instead of growing old, he grew young.

Benjamins life began at the making of the clock; however, the clock outlived him into the 2000s (Benjamin died before the end of the clocks life). In the end of the movie; the hurricane K. waters raise around the clock (at the point the clock obviously breaks and stops running due to the water (although not shown breaking)
