wired my controler per chevrolet instructions. Red lite does not come on indicating power. Is there something I need to do to the truck to get power to the controler or out of the controler. I had power on the red/black wire of the harness under the dash.

It is possible that you will need to make some connections under the hood of your 2012 Chevy Silverado. But, since you have power on the red/black wire, it should be powering the brake controller. To make sure, I have included a link to an FAQ article that shows what connections need to be made under the hood.
Make sure that you have the power wire from the truck going to the black wire of the controller. The white wire on the truck needs to go to the white ground wire on the controller. If the ground wire is not attached, it will not complete the circuit. The light blue/white wires connects to the brake controller red wire. The dark blue wire on the truck goes to the blue wire on the controller.
If there is an orange wire on the truck it is not needed.
Continue following the setup procedures as indicated in the instructions linked here for reference. If the controller does not power the electric trailer brakes with the brake pedal and manual override even if it is wired correctly and is receiving power from the truck then there is something wrong with the internal circuitry of the controller and it will need to be replaced.
