LED on Tekonsha 39523 POD Brake Controller Doesn't Illuminate When Trailer Isn't Connected


Hello, I don’t have a trailer right now. I bought the pod brake controller and the wiring harness that connects to my jeep gladiator. I plugged both end in. No light on controller. Do I need a trailer hooked up to get light on the front of controller.


Expert Reply:

It is normal for the LED on the # 39523 POD brake controller not to be illuminated when a trailer isn't plugged in.

The light will be:

• GREEN when trailer is connected
• RED when brake pedal or manual is activated and trailer is connected.
• Flashing RED or OFF when trailer is not connected.

Your controller is working normally.

I've linked to the owner's manual for the # 39523 brake controller as well as to a video that explains how it works.
