That's not true, the display on the controller should illuminate for a few seconds when the truck starts up.

Default missing 2nd wire connector

I was able to remove the dash pieces and found only one wire pigtail, the 7 pin connector. I was not able to find the smaller one in the harness. My factory controller will not light up. Do I need to somehow splice in the second connector? If so , can someone direct me to a site that has detailed instructions a on which wires to splice and to source the connector?

Thanks

So I recently wanted to install an aftermarket brake controller because the only option I didn't get with my truck was the factory brake controller...ya ya I know what was I thinking. But anyway I started doing some investigating and found some people talking about getting the factory controller and just installing it yourself and thought sweet...

I got the number and went to the dealer and this is when things got interesting. First I was told that they don't make a brake controller but luckily I had the number and gave it to them. But I was then told that this was only for trucks that came with the controller from the factory. I guess they say it will have an interface problem if you install it. But in doing some searching they found another kit that is for trucks that didn't come originally with the factory controller. So for anyone having similar problems here is what you need.

So here are the Numbers you guys maybe interested in.


Factory Brake Controller (For Trucks Originally Equipped With Controller)
56029431AE

Factory Brake Controller (For Trucks Not Originally Equipped With Controller)
82212548

I just ordered kit for trucks that didn't come with the factory controller and was told it comes with everything I will need to install it. It was on back order for a while but I guess it's finally shipping out, when I get it installed I will let everyone know how it is.

I believe if you don't have both connectors the unit can not be used. I had both connectors on mine and it lights up fine, just doesn't display on the instrument cluster.

I have been doing more research on this. What controller are guys using? Are you just ordering the one for trucks with the factory controller or is it better to order the one that it did not come with one? I have looked and I have both of the 4 pin connectors under the dash so I should be fine. I have also read guys have got them for around $100 but they are all over $200, unless that's just how much they have gone up. I'm planning to go to the dealer tomorrow and see what they say, but I havn't had a lot of luck with them with some other stuff...
