Default 2012 Integrated Brake Controller in 2011??

Hello,

I found out after the fact that the 2011 Integrated Brake Controller does not work on electric over hydraulic brakes, but that the 2012's provide a menu in the EVIC to select, electric or electric over hydraulic brakes.

It appears the part numbers for the brake controller might be the same for both years which leads me to believe that it should/could be a flash update for the EVIC to recognize or provide that option. I've been told both yes and no by different dealers and the Dodge customer help line.

Does anyone know if this is possible, or if there is a 2012 brake controller and I installed it into the 2011, would it work? Has anyone done this?

If done correctly it should provide me with an extra menu selection for trailer brake setup.

Thanks in advance!!

After reading tons of posts about the factory controller, I'd be surprised to find that they're really any different even if there have been any part # changes. Most any decent aftermarket controller will allow electric or hydraulic brake control, so I'd be very surprised that the very nice factory controller doesn't support this also. I think you're probably on the right track with it being just a software tweak between your '11 and the '12 on this issue. I went with an aftermarket Tekonsha P3 that does just about everything since I didn't have EVIC. I wouldn't expect much less of the factory controller's abilities.

I didn't get any parts, it came from the factory installed.

And I had a P3 in my old truck but I don't want to have to install one in this. The integrated control was one of the things I wanted. Im hoping the flash update will allow the change. I had one dealer that went so far as to tell me to change the brakes on my trailer!! He also told me I could only use mopar parts and not an aftermarket controller or it would void my warranty (obviously completely untrue). In the end he gave me the dodge 800 number to call and I thought to myself, why aren't they calling? Isn't this their job?

Anyway I hope someone on here has some insight. It kind of important for these brakes to work once boating season starts.

Subscribed I was wondering the same thing. I had seen in the 12 ram brochure a pic of the evic and started to ask around.

I've actually found a dealer that feels it should work and is willing to try. I'm headed up there tomorrow, about 20 miles away but worth it if it works. I'll let you know how it turns out.
