Should the Light on the Pod Brake Controller be On All the Time with No Trailer Connected


Dear sir, is the light on the front of the unit supposed to be on only when you hook up to your trailer, or does it come on when you start your vehicle even tho you are not hooked to your trailer?


Expert Reply:

When no trailer is connected the light on brake controller # 39523 will either be flashing or off. If it is green all the time with no trailer connected that indicates a short to ground. This normally occurs when there is corrosion on the pins or where the wires attach on the trailer connector.

I have included a link to the instructions that include a troubleshooting section. I have also included a link to our FAQ article on troubleshooting brake controllers for you.
