Brake problem??

I had to take my tractor to the shop for some warranty work and my brakes kept hitting hard enough to slide for about 1 to 2 seconds at a time. Just going down the road every thing was ok the probem was when I touched the brake pedal even when I just to kick off the cruse. I had to unplug up my trailer to get home. Anyone ever this problem I wondering if its a truck or trailer. I have a Chevy Duramax

It sounds like your brake controller is way out of adjustment. You did not state what brake controller you have. Is it after market or factory equipped?

Chance a child messed with the adjustment?

Beyond that the controller has probably failed.

Factory brake controller or an aftermarket?

Good chance the controller has failed.

That would shed some light in another direction.
Now I would suspect maybe some frayed wires in the trailer connector. Maybe a strand of wire from the 12V pin intermittently touching the brake pin.
Another possibility is a defective break-away switch.

Just a thought, one more thing to check is the ebrake switch on the TT. Maybe the pull cable was partially pulled out and just tapping the brakes or bumps, is engaging the power through the switch for a moment.

Good luck,

I checked the trailer connector its not frayed. This is on a car trailer not our travel trailer so no break away brakes. The fact that it hits so hard even with the controller set as low as it will go makes me think it is a short. Tomorrow I will check the trailer.
