manual shift mode wont turn on

I have a 2006 titan 4x4 with the automatic transmission with the shifter is on the column. There is a button on the end of the shift to turn on the manual mode and a toggle switch to shift up and down through the gears but when i press the button nothing happens and I can not shift up or down. Is there a light that is supposed to come on when you turn on the manual mode? any ideas what might be wrong? I looked to see if there was a blown fuse but I do not know which fuse it would be. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I thought that was for when you was hauling trailer.

This is used anytime you need to shift to a lower gear. there is a separate button to go into tow mode. there is no way to shift into a lower gear other than to use this manual mode switch

I did some more searching and I think I found the answer. I guess I was not wording it correctly the first time I searched for it. The answer was right here on the forum

Talking It Worked

I took the cover of the steering column this morning and sure enough there was a black wire that had broken off the connector I repaired it using a small piece of wire for a household thermostat a small snap connector that I purchased at Radio shack and a wire tie. Now it works again. I will post pictures of the repair over the weakened.
