Default Brake controller not working

I just bought this truck thought i could take my brake controller out of my old truck and with buying a harness for the dodge truck i could just plug it in and they would work. but no such luck. I get power to the controller if i push on the manuel slide but not with the pedal. dodge dealer said they didn't know what the problem could be any help would be great thanks.

I'm not 100% sure on this, but could be an IOD fuse issue. Check Fuse 51 (20A).
If you have map lights, do they work with the ignition off?
