2011 Brake controller install
 
I'm currently using a aftermarket brake controller and plan to install a factory controller in the near future. Since the truck didn't come with it will it recognize the install. :4-dontknow:

You will need to get the option added to the build sheet for it to show in the EVIC. My truck didn't come with the factory controller. I had the dealer install when new and flash the computer. The controller failed and I installed an aftermarket one since the factory controller isn't that great. Now I cant get the code removed from the build sheet so I get an error message every time I start the truck. So consider your options before you regret it. The only nice thing about the factory controller was the fit and finish.

I have a new RAM 1500.
I am planning on installing a Tekonsha Brake Controller and a wiring harness adapter.
The Tekonsha wiring harness application guide calls for P/N 3021-P.
What brand after-market controller did you purchase?
Did you use a "Plug & Play" type (2 connecters) of adapter to connect from controller to truck?

I have a Tekonsha P3. I installed it with the tekonsha adapter. It only uses one of the factory plugs. Works great.

Tekonsha make great bc's. You shouldn't feel inadequate over the factory controller.
