my 2010 ram 3500 does that too. my trailer is older, who cares. the alarm bell sounds every five seconds saying the trailer brake is disconnected then connected. its ok on smooth roads but on bumpy roads it drives me nuts. i think it's a dodge software problem i don't care if the light comes on but the bell must be stopped

You dont need a "kit"

If you have the wiring in place, just buy the controller (part numbers is a few pages back) and the bezel and you're good to go. If you want it in the EVIC then get it flashed... pretty simple

I get a kick out of people waiting for this "kit" when you couldve just done it yourself a while ago...

Well it is obvious it was planned at some point since the same little pocket is on the 09 that is on all other years after that don't have the controller. The bezel and controller fit just like in the latter years. So they should have a plan for it, but really I am hearing it is going to be an obsolete controller in a few years because of the type of brakes....I was told this by several trailer companies....no they were not just trying to sell me a controller.

well, maybe this 'kit" has everything you went out and bought seperately. And maybe, it will tell what what build dates are effected. Some people don't have the time to sit around and try and figure out what has to be done to acomplish this installation. Seems like all the other posts go back and forth on what can be done or what can't be done. after awhile it gets confussing.

Its pretty simple man... instead of wasting your time for a kit it couldve been done a while ago. The kit will include everything I bought seperately for what looks to be a higher price too...

All you need to do is look for two connectors behind the cubby hole, if you have them buy the controller and bezel and your done. Connect it and screw it in... you dont even need the dealer to flash the truck it will work without the flash but it just wont display the brake info on your cluster. If you want that go to a deer and have them add the option code. You will need to do this same thing with the kit anyways

I dont see whats so hard about this, the kit does not include anything else. The only bigthing is if your truck has the plugs or not, so far it has nothing to do wih build dates but more of trim. Even then some slts have them while laramies dont. Thats the only issue...

Brake type obsolete?? I was told this eight years ago as well and electric brakes havent gone anywhere the guys full of himself. There are different types of brakes but they arent goin anywhere soon, youll be fine

I just received the controller and bezel from mopar-wholesale.com, it cost about 115.00 shipped. It took about a 1/2 hour to install (with a beer break ) You need 2 screws to attach the controller to the bezel, I used the shortest 4MM fine screws I could find at the local hardware store. I tryed alot of different screws but the 4MM seem to "fit" the best. Now I just need to see if I can get it flashed at the dodge dealer.

Default hOW TO TURN OFF evic MESSAGE TO SERVICE TRAILER BRAKE SYSTEM

I have a 2010 Dodge Ram 300DRW HD 4X4, I had an electric brake issue in my 7 blade connector, I found it and corrected it. Now how do I get the EVIC message "Service Trailer Brake control system" and of course I have the red trailer with the line thru it, its one of those factory intergrated control system and those lights stay on even with trailer off.
HELP!!!!!!!!!!

Why the hell do they put a class IV hitch with wiring to the back for brakes and lights etc. Now if I install an after market controller I can just plug it in the big blue connector and well I don't have it in my EVIC **** I never look at it anyway. So the wiring somewhere on the frame shorts out....and my trailer brakes fail. Who is to blame? So really what is the difference, I would sign a waiver saying I would not hold them to blame if hooking up the OEM brake on my 09 failed I would not go after Chrysler as long as it was due to the hook up and not faulty controller or wiring after the controller.

I have a 2010 with the one connector and I got my controller and bezel in yesterday and had it installed in about an hour. Everything is working like it should! I just need to find a dealer to flash my system for free!

Thanks for all the great info on here!

Thanks for the info. I bought a controller form an Ebay seller. Then got the dash panel from my local dealer. $14.50. really cheap. I followed the direction and opend up my dash. I was only able to locate one connector taped to the harness.It was the 7 pin larger connector. Do I need to have both of them hooked up? My controller does not light up. Also, will it work If I do not have the dealer flash the ecu?
Thanks

Do you have the factory controller or an aftermarket one? If it is factory, it requires both plugs to be hooked up. But, if you only have one plug, you can wire in the second one. I think the instructions are a couple pages back.
I had one plug and bought a Prodigy3. Love it!

It's an OEM controller. I'll look for the directions for adding the second pig tail. The truck does have the oem tow package.
Thanks
