Hooked up trailer brake controller, but not braking

2008 Nissan Titan Tow package 4wd LE

controller: Predator Dx2

I just installed last night, about 99% all wires are connected right, i have the relays, lights are working on the trailer, the controller is lighting up, but the brakes on the trailer isn't working.

Know of any problems or something i'm missing?

Do the trailer brakes work if it's hooked to a different truck?

I'd double check the wiring and controller settings if it has any. Did you use the harness that comes with truck?

Did you adjust the controller? On my Prodigy you have to dial it in.
