Try looking at this link. If it makes sense, great. If not, we'll try to get the actual 74377 manual.

2008 lincoln navigator shifter locked no brake lights is there a way to test the brake switch


Yes , with a volt meter . Find the switch an back probe wires ,testing for voltage in , then press the brake pedal an check for voltage on wire going out . You'll need a wiring diagram so you know which wire is the right one's . You can find free wiring diagrams at http://bbbind.com/free_tsb.html enter vehicle info . year make model an engine size .Under system click on lighting ,then under subsystem click on stop lamp . none of the brake lights work including the high mount stop lights ? A electronic module (smart junction box) controls the lower brake lights . The high mount are controlled directly from brake light switch .

I HAVE A 2009 GMC ACADIA WHEN I HIT A BUMP THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON , THE ABS LIGHT COMES ON AND STABILY TRACK LIGHT COME ON WITH A TROUBLE CODE U073 AND A U121


U073 is a communication code from one module to another to simply put it. Code U073 refers to a communication problem with the electronic brake control module ( Which controls ABS/Traction and stability ). I would suspect a loose connection/shorted wiring or even possible internal problem with the brake control module.If the issue occurs after hitting a bump, most likely a loose connection or the wiring rubbing somewhere causing a short from the brake control module.

Brake lights staying on


The rear electronic module controls the brake lights. The module could be defective but there is a diode in each BLK/ORG wire to the brake ligh so they should be checked as well

What does ebcm/ebtcm mean


An Electronic Brake Control Module, or EBCM, monitors the rotation speed of each wheel. The EBCM decreases the braking force to a wheel when it detects that the wheel is rotating more slowly than the other wheels. Additional details for GM vehicles in this link: absfixer.com/how_do_i_remove.

EBTCM is the Electronic Brake Traction Control Module device.

Good luck.

I have a ford factory wiring plug with 5 wires, I


If you are talking about the trailer brake pigtail under the dash, the brown wire is for the illumination on the brake controller, if applicable.

My reese hand held controller did not use this, so I just blind end tapped it into the harness.
If your brake controller does not have background illumination, then you don't need the brown wire.
Sounds like the controller is similar.

How do you install an electronic trailer brake controller in a 1995 GMC Suburban 1500?


a brake controller has 4 wires on it, Black, white, blue,red.

Black is positive battery 12 volts connect to 30 amp circuit breaker to the battery

White goes to good solid ground

red connects to white wire from the brake switch

blue wire connects to 7 way trailer connector at rear of truck. If the truck has trailer package you will find the blue wire and red wires under brake booster taped to the harness you can connect your blue brake control wire to that blue wire. At the rear of the truck the other end of the blue wire will be taped to a harness under the rear of the truck. you will have to now connect the blue wire to the blue input on your 7 way connector

Wire connections for camper


The wire from your brake controller should be blue (if it was wired correctly). It also should be a heavier gauge wire. Typically 10 gauge. Once you have determined the correct wire, check it to see if controller power is getting through the plug. Another common problem is the ground wire not connected (white).
