2013 Ram SLT Crew Cab - Brake Controller Install
My truck came with the 7/4 pin connector, but did not have the integrated brake controller. Dealer says it's not available yet, so he put in a service order for one so I can get it when available.
Now I need a controller to use until the factory controller is available. Called my camper dealer and they won't touch the truck, said they cannot install a controller on it. Went to a truck accessory place here in town, who at first said 'sure, no problem', but after a hour or so of testing and calling their tech support, came back saying they could not do it either.
The truck accessory place said they could not install it because the stop signal is always hot and does not change when the brake is pressed. I tested this myself with a meter and verified the problem. As soon as the ignition is on, the stop light signal goes high and stays high.
I did go back to the dealer and ask him to install an aftermarket... he is researching that option and supposed to get back to me.
Has anyone else seen this or know of a work around?
