Trailer lamps usually have dual filiments in a single bulb, whereas newer cars have sepaprate bulbs for each function. The two different types do not play well together. Go to a good parts store or u-haul dealer and they can provide a logic box that can fix this issue.
Perhaps the Chrysler Corporation will not warranty or authorize the 7 pin system for two reasons. 1) The vehicle may not be structurally compatable with a trailer heavy enough to need electric brakes. (This is extremely likely). That means , if you hook up such a vehicle, and something goes wrong, Chrysler does not want to get sued becasue your car wrecked and it was the trailers fault. 2) The 7 pin system includes a "hot" wire from the battery or fuse box or wherever, and the Chrysler makes no such electrical harness on their cars. They also know, if you add such a harness, and it shorts out, they are responsible for any ensuing fires. That being said, most any company who sells trailers might add the wriing harness and fix you up, but a good way to start would be to go by a "U-Haul" outlet and ask them about it. If they find in their literature they cannot add the 7 pin harness, you may have to find someone who can "cobble" it for you. Be blessed.
Towing and hauling usually means it has some options to make it easier to tow or haul. In this cas it will have a hitch and the plug for teailer lights... It will have a few other extras as well maybe even heavier brakes but no electric brake control or wiring in the fron for it. Sorry...
I had the sam problem with my '02 escape when I installed the hitch. I changed the turn signal relay under the dashboard on the drivers side of the dash with one from an escape that had a tow package(one was blue and the other was yellow...). worked fine for me after that. Don't know if it changed later...
