Tekonsha Voyager Break controller not working

I picked up my trailer yesterday and my brake controller is not working....I have no lights on it at all.

Any suggestions on where to start?

I think that is the brand I have. The 1 led as I recall, only lights up when the httt is connected to the tv.

Yes I think you are correct but I did not have any lights on the controller when I hooked the trailer up. All the other lights worked

Start by checking the connections and if the wires are still soldered to the pin in the connectors both under the dash and in the 7pin connector.

Exhaust checking / testing the 7-pin connections. A proper 7-Pin connection circuit is what activates the brake controller.

I had a similar problem with my '96 Safari van pulling a 26S. I spent about 6 hours testing all the pins and the only one not powered up was the hot wire for the brakes that I ran from the engine compartment through the firewall under the carpet to the rear and connected to the 7 pin plug. Turned out the wire was corroded at the area of the rocker panel but couldn't be detected visually. The local Trailer/Hitch dealer found it in 10 minutes and replaced a 12" section and I was good to go..So check for continuity if it's not a factory harness.
