Question about 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe
The reason why this does not work is because the brake control unit is designed to look for an inductive load(magnet coil). A elec/hyd pump assembly typically has a resistance value of anywhere from 400 to 1700 ohms. Most trailer wiring circuits are roughly 2.0 ohms or less. The control will not activate due to the fact it is not a designated trailer resistance for the brake control unit. At this point I have not heard of any suggested fix for this problem besides not ordering the GM control. Buy the Tekonsha P3 and it will take care of your problems.

The GM Integrated Brake Controller seems to be a real problem when it comes to electric ove rhydraulic actuators (what were their engineers thinking?). I have talked with representatives from Carlisle (which is incompatible with a half dozen or so controllers by their count) and Dexter (whose ONLY incompatibility seems to be the GM controller). I have been told there is no solution to the incompatibility for those 2 actuators. I just got off the phone with the Titan Tire Corporation tech support (1-800-832-8781). I was given a couple of part numbers for adapters they claim will allow the GM integrated controller to work with their Electro/Hydraulic actuator. I have not tried their product with the company's '08 Chevy Silverado, I'm just passing on what I was told. There may be other manufacturers of actuators I haven't found yet, so there may be a better solution (other than GM using a little forethought with their designs!).
