Up until now I thought we were referring to an RV trailer.

You found no frayed wire now we are back to the controller itself has most likely failed.

So Friday when I carried my tractor to the shop my in dash control was working when I push the lever to check the brakes... but hooked up our TT today and the in dash controller will not manual set the brakes. But when you press the brake pedal it does. So back to the shop.

Now we are slowly getting more and more pertinent information.

1. Did the brakes work properly before you had the warranty work done?
2. Your last description sounds like someone hooked the brake lights to the trailer brake connection.

Yes they worked before. There has been no change in wiring.

OK, let's see if I have all the facts straight here.
1. The car trailer brakes worked properly before the warranty work was done.
2. The car trailer has a 7-pin connector (not very common). No adapter is being used.
3. The travel trailer brakes also worked properly before the warranty work was done.
4. After the warranty work was done the car trailer would lock its brakes the instant the brake pedal is pressed.
5. The manual brake controller does not apply the brakes on neither the car trailer nor the travel trailer.

If I have all of the above facts correct then the truck (tractor?) wiring has been altered or the brake controller has a catastrophic failure. If I do not have the facts correct please provide any corrections.

Question: What was the scope of the warranty work?

tnchuck100 I think you are right, it is going back to the shop again.

Went back to the shop brake controller had a steady reading on 8.8 brake gain on the scan tool then went to zero (dash reads 1.1 brake gain while scan tool reads 8.8) so since it now reads zero gain they did not do any thing because they didn't find out what the problem was before it cleared itself, he said bring it back if it happens again. He worked on it for over an hour The good news no charge.
