Default Another Integrated Brake Controler ?

I know that there is a quite lengthy and detailed post about the controler but have one quick question. I had the dealer install my controler in my 10' Laramie. I hooked up to a friends trailer today and it seemed to work fine. My question is about the EVIC. I did not see anything different. I read that it should be another option in the one with oil pressure, temp and such. Its not there. I don't think the dealer programed it. The controller lit up and such but is the picture of the trailer supposed to do something? Thanks in advance

Check back with your dealer. I have the factory controller in my 2010, and it shows up in the info section of the EVIC. As for the picture of the trailer....the only time I've noticed it, is when I drop off the trailer and drive away without shut the truck off and restarting. The picture shows the trailer as 'disconnected'....sort of a warning that it no longer 'sees' a trailer.

the dealer needs to add the controller code to your build code on the dealer connect system then they need to flash your truck. After you should see it in the veh info list. It will show the trailer pic and a animated bar showing the brakes engaging and releasing. I added my controller after market and once the dealer added the code and flashed the truck it works awsome.

I also looked into getting the integrated controller on my 2010 Ram 1500. I called 2 dealers and they all said that it can't be done and that those controllers may only be factory installed.
I have a hard time believing this BS.
I there anyone that has retrofitted their 2010 truck with integrated brake controller and has done right, including the flashing?

I'm assuming they also flashed your software to enable console display.
Thanks,

The flash cost me $50. It was done in Hamilton. The dealer is lazy if they are telling you that. I took the code with me which i believe cormacs posted in the other thread. I asked them to add it to my build code which they did. then had to pay the 50 to download it into the truck.

The only way it would not be possible is if your truck is a 09 or a early build 2010 i believe as the wiring harness is different
