2015 Integrated Trailer Brake Controller malfunction?
I have a 2015 F150 Lariat with max tow package that I just used to tow my 4k loaded camper. The camper has electric brakes.
When plugged in, the truck doesn't acknowledge the brakes or the trailer. When I adjust the gain, a screen pops up saying "Trailer Brake Gain: x.x No Trailer"
I thought maybe it just wasn't detecting the trailer at all, but the lights work, signals and brake. I cleaned the contacts and plugged it back in but it still says no trailer. As I drive, I can manually squeeze the brake controller and it'll actuate the brakes on the camper--BUT the dash will say "Trailer Disconnected".
Yesterday, after trying to troubleshoot the issue, I noticed the dash saying that I was towing a trailer when I was definitely not. On the towing screen, it said I had put 7 miles of towing on this trailer, and counting. I tried to get it to "disconnect" from the trailer but restarting the truck but it didn't work until I squeezed the trailer brake controller.
Am I missing something?? This truck only has 5k miles and already getting screwy on me.
