I will tell you in about a week if it works. I have ordered the parts but the only problem is they are on back order. I am a mechanic at a dodge dealership and my parts guy said he wouldn't have an issue returning them if it didn't work. I looked under my dash and both connectors are there and waiting to be plugged into it. The only problem I can foresee is the trailer brake controller obviously communicates over the bus since it uses inputs such as ESP from the ABS module and also has outputs to the cluster. What I have experienced in the past when I have done something like this is the network doesn't like it when you just add modules since that module is not in the build. So what I'm gonna do is plug it in and see if the network will just adopt the new module and start useing it. But if that doesn't work I'm gonna call me dealer service rep and pleed with him to add the trailer brake control module sales code to the build. I will keep you informed when the parts come in. The module is cheap it is only like $120 plus like $15 for the trim panel. If it works that is cheap for an inertia style brake controller. Plus if it works properly it uses ESP events to dictate the power to send to the trailer.

Could you provide the part numbers once you verify that it works that way if anyone else is interested, then they can order with what you used?

I sure can. The brake controller is one pat number but the bezel has two different ones. Obviously depending on the colour of the interior. If it works I will bring part numbers, if it doesn't I will inform.

Well I just got a call from Chrysler Technical Assistance. They said it is not possible to add the brake controller into the build. I havn't given up yet, I'm going to try and plug it in anyway and see if it will work independantly of the truck's systems.

Well, I just installed it today. It works just fine. I hooked it up to my trailer and the lights all light up and you can set the intensity. If you want to do it yourself the part numbers are 56029431AE for the controller itself and 1EB13XDVAA for the trim piece. The trim piece part number is for the dark slate interior. I works great. I will warn you though, the TIPM (Totally Integrated Power Module) sets a trouble code for "Additional Can "C" Bus detected" so it could send a technician in the wrong direction if you actually had a bus problem.

Cool! Good to hear you got it to work. I think this will help out others who might want to get a trailer brake controller. Post a pic when you get a change before the pic ho's start the onslaught..... including me. But i'll give you a chance.

It'll have to wait till next week. I'm leaving for toronto tomorrow and I don't think I will have time between now and then. I'm at work and I don't have my camera.

Does the trouble code actually set off a light? Does the info show on the display screen like stock? Any way to get rid of the trouble code?
