Does anyone out theretow witha Dodge Ram pickup with the factory installed trailer brake controller (they call it an "integrated brake controller". When I plug trailer 7-way electrical connector to my truck, shouldn't the trailer icon on brake controller light up, indicating trailer is connected to vehicle ok?? What I get is the digital number value of what controller is set for on only, then numbers change when I apply truck brakes, but never see a value higher than 3 volts. When I manually apply trailer brakes via the brake controller (with no truck brakes applied) trailer does stop good & I do see the max 10 volt value both on brake controller & on dash info centre. Stopped at truck dealership today, and mechanic there said he's only worked on one other brake controller issue, and all he did was hook scope to truck to check if any codes came back. Sure enough everything came back 100% ok, as I suspected it would. I have checked 2 fuses in front engine compartment panel, but they're testing good. Don't know what else to try. Going to Myrtle beach in July, and will be driving thru the ountains, really don't want to have to lean down to manually apply brakes each time. Really curious to find out if any of you have a sililar truck and if you get the "yellow trailer icon" on brake controller light up......as well as when you apply truck brakes, if display showing voltage ouput shows up on both brake controller & dash info centre.
