Will Hayes Syncronizer Brake Controller Work on a 2016 Ram 1500


I have been told from the Ram Dealership, as well as an aftermarket trailer brake installer that the 2015 and 2016 Rams will not allow after market trailer brake controllers to be installed. I checked with the Dealer and even they do not have a trailer brake accessory for the 2016 model due to some sort ofrecall on the software from the factory part. I would like to buy this, but i need to know for sure if this will properly work.


Expert Reply:

In the newer Rams the stoplight switch of yhe truck uses a lower voltage signal than most vehicles so only some controllers can be used. The confusion you have experienced with your local dealer and trailer shop is most likely stemming from that.

We have confirmation from Hayes that their Syncronizer part # HA81725 will work on your 2016 Ram 1500 and all you would need to install it is the harness part # HA81795-HBC.
