Seeing a little wierdness. Took the truck/trailer out in the daylight today. The brake controller works fine, but the display is only visible (lights up) when the truck marker or headlights are on.
Any ideas?

That's just how it is when you install it on an '09.

There are pictures and more detailed instructions in the PDF file I posted at http://www.ramforumz.com/showpost.ph...3&postcount=37. I hope this helps.

Default What type of controller is the factory unit ??

Sorry if this has been addressed already, but searching did not come up with anything. I'm wondering what type of brake controller this is. Is it the type that has a motion device in it (pendulem) to detect brake force or is it the delayed time kind, where it senses how long your on the brakes to then determine how much braking force to apply?

Thanks for the help as I just ordered mine online with black bezel...just $115 shipped BTW !!

And when finished installation of controller on my 2012 RAM I had to have the computer flashed at the dealer so that the controller was recognized.

Installed my Trailer brake unit on my truck with only one plug, used Ken99's pdf write up to do the job, took like 30min and was installed and working. Thanks for the great work Ken99.

Thanks for the write up. I got mine delivered today from the big brown van. I spent more time looking for the right tools than it did to install it. Install took about 5 minutes.
