Hi Ken,

I am in the same boat as you with only one connector for the trailer brake module. Would you mind posting some pictures of your connections to the harness?

Thanks in advance,

Mike

Just wondering if it is working ok. I ordered one from my local Dodge dealer and it came in but they advised that there has been problems with it and Dodge is working on a fix. If you are not having any problems (they suggest it affects a computer setting possibly) then I am going to try it on my 2010 Ram 1500 Quadcab.

Hey, just back from a much-needed vacation. Sorry to be late on this.

Nice work finding the plug pictures with pinouts - I figured they may be on the build site, but never looked before going on holiday.

Now this thread has all the information to be useful to 2010 and 2009 models!

Thanks for the addition!

Not sure why the dealers are saying there is issues as mine seems to be working fine. I wonder if Randy can shed some light on this for us?

Haven't seen or heard anything about an issue with the brake controllers but I'll keep an eye out.

Mopar is trying to say if the truck didnt come with the trailer brake already installed that this part 3 will cause issues. I have yet to see it cause any issues.

Guys - My notes are summarized in the attached PDF file. My dealer didn't indicate this modification would cause problems, they simply insisted it could not be done. When I informed the parts dept that I had been able to make the controller work in my truck, they admitted Chrysler has issued TSB stating an adapter kit to retrofit the "B" harness would be available in late 2010. Until then I guess the "official" word is the factory controller cannot be made to work with these trucks.

The pictures and annotations were mine. The ITBM info provided on the build site was a red herring. I would not advise anyone to use the information I found there with any confidence.

They would have to think outside the box....but thank you for the info you provided. It helped a lot.

I stand corrected then. Great photos and nice job putting it all together.

This is why I love this forum - everyone pitches in and the end result is some very useful posts!
