Trailer connector problems

Hello,
I just had a electric brake controller installed in my new Pro 4x and the Technician tested it. It showed to be working fine but the RT Turn signal is not working at the Trailer connector on the Truck. We used the Factory wiring harness that came with my new Truck.

Everything works except the RT Turn signal. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where to look for the problem? Heck it's a new Truck just 30 days old. You would think everything would work..

Thanks for any and all replies.

Bud

A lot of trailer light problems are due to a bad ground. Sometimes its tough to chase down. Sorry i'm not more help

Are you talking about when the Trailer is connected to the Truck? If so, I haven't hooked up the Trailer yet. The Trailer Receptacle on the Truck has been tested with a Test light. No power TO the Receptacle on the RT Turn signal blade in the plug. I feel the problem is under the Hood but can't rule anything else out at this point.

Re: Trailer connector problems

Took my pro 4x to dealer to be checked out on why the Rt Turn Signal don't work on the Trailer receptical.. They said the BCM was bad, and ordered one. Been a couple weeks now waiting for part to arrive. Called Dealer and they told me it should be here this coming week. I sure hope so, and really hope it fixes the problem.

Going to go camping shortly and need the lights workin correctly.. Anybody else have a BCM go out and cause this problem?

Re: Trailer connector problems

Ok...your brake controller does not effect your trailer turn signals or brake lights....BUT there is a relay for that circuit....
