Check the fuse for the brake lamps, as the electric brake controller gets its signal from the brake light circuit,
Check also your base settings, if it is calibrated regulary then the unit will either under or over react to the brake signal.

Hope this is of some help.

Location of Brake Pressure Sensor on 2009 2500HD Chev Silverado. This is what tells the factory Integrated Trailer Brake Controller how much you are applying the vehicle brakes.


GM also offers a built-in trailer-brake controller on 2009 half-ton trucks. Like Ford's, when activated, the truck's ABS brakes reduce gain to the trailer brakes. In GM trucks, however, the controller gain adjustment and hand control are on the left side of the steering column. It's all electronic, not hydraulic, This link has an article you may find interesting Trailer Brake Controllers What Wrong and What Right PickupTrucks com News

2005 dodge 2500 diesel it has a new brake controller. trailer brakes work when you push the controller manualy but trailer brakes don't work when you push the brake pedal


there is likely a wire that goes from your brake pedal switch to the trailer brake controller this wire is probably broken or not hooked up. if it is hooked up and no wires are broken I would start making sure everything is hooked up right.

Brakes do not release when foot is off the pedal


Have the ABS hydraulic control unit checked, it may be holding the brakes on due to a leak internally.

How should I prepare my durango to pull a 24 foot travel trailer...what class of hitch, do I need in-board electric trailer brake controls, etc.?


Hi Frank,
I have a Durango 2000 and pull a 24 foot ski boot loaded with equipment. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't try towing anything without the trailer brakes connected. I purchased the Titan Trailer brakes setup and they've never failed me once. The hitch: just make sure you get the right towing capacity for your travel trailer. I have the 5.9 liter engine, which allows up to 6500 pounds of towing capacity. Your owners guide will explain how many based on engine size.
Good Luck, and happy traveling.

2000 GMC SIERRA Pickup---- Has been equiped to tow trailer. Brake lights in rear of truck and on cab does not work when brake pedal is depressed. They work though when you throw the lever on electric...


Disconnect the trailer wiring and recheck the vehicle lighting. If it returns to normal, then obviously the trailer is the problem. Quite often the trailer plug loses its independent ground and it will back feed thru other circuits trying to locate one. Especially if its a boat trailer, water intrusion can cause havoc on the grounds due to corrosion. The under hood electrical center has circuits intentionally meant to be used for trailers. You CANNOT just jumper into the rear lights of the truck (tail, signals and brakes coming from the tail light connector). Because it uses a multi-function switch, the brakes and signals are actually the same circuit, and have to be wired separately for a trailer plug to operate.

Trailer brake controller problem


I found the problem. Talking with a technician from the controller company, we determined that it was a fuse problem. I found that the fuse to the CHMSL was blown.
