Default electric brake controller on superduty

i have a superduty with a break controller that was installed before i bought the truck. i used to work great as well as the remote start that was also installed before my purchase. recently the remote started and the break controller quite working. when i plug in th trailer, the controller recognizes it and the manual slider works just not when i hit the pedal.

any advice?

Sounds like someone did a hack and tap on the brake wire and now it's messed up.

Thinking the same thing. Also, check to see that your brake lights are working, and fuses.

his brake lights do work, which is why i also feel that the hack and tap was done on the feed wire for the brake controller

What year Superduty?

Check to see if it is a hack job or if they used the stock wiring.........maybe the plug is slightly disconnected.

The 99 to 2002, have a plug under the dash, almost behind the radio that came standard. This plug is a bear to get to, and may not have been connected properly.
Otherwise, its probably your controller.

check for corrosion on the plugs (truck end and trailer end).
I just repld the plug on mine $5 and 45 minutes.
Just make sure to disconnect the battery.
I shorted mine out and blew a fuse.
