tough situation, brake controller

I am having a little trouble with my 2011 dodge ram 2500 6.7 diesel. Ever since I have owned the truck I have noticed that the integrated brake controller has never worked properly. No matter which setting I am at on the controller, as soon as I hit the brake pedal in the truck and release it the trailer brakes are still engaged. The dealer is insisting that there is nothing wrong with the truck, but have hooked up the trailer to another truck with no issues. Any suggestions??????

Consider switching to an aftermarket controller. It eliminates the problem while being cheaper overall.

I just had a thought_ use a 12V tester, hook it to your brake wire coming from the switch. Immediately upon the removal of brake pedal pressure the 12V tester light must go out. If it does not the switch is faulty or failing to break the circuit.

I think you might find more info posting this in the towing/tow vehicle section: Trailer Towing and Tow Vehicles Discussion - iRV2 Forums This is the Truck Conversion section. Nothing to do with pickup trucks.

My question, was the truck you tested the trailer with; another Dodge with integrated brake controller.
As Bob suggested, tow vehicles would be a better area for this discussion, maybe a moderator will move it over , more views more answers.

I'll just post here and hope it gets transferred over.

The owner of where I work has a 2012 or 2011 Ram 3500 SRW with integrated TBC. Has always worked fine for him.
Just feedback.
