What Do the LED's of the Tekonsha 7-way Trailer Emulator Indicate


Do you have a manual that shows what each of the LEDs on the tester means? I seem to have lost any instructions I may have had on its use and can find no info on the Tekonsha web site. I am trying to use it on a 2011 Chev Silverado 2500 with integrated brake controller but may use it for other vehicles as well. Thank You

According to to my buddy at Tekonsha, the 7-way Trailer Emulator is compatible with the OEM brake controller used on Ford trucks, but NOT on Dodge or GM trucks.

The LEDs indicate the following:

LT-Left Turn/Brake Lamp
RT-Right Turn/Brake Lamp
12V-12-V Accessory Power from Battery
BK-Brake Output Voltage from Brake Controlller
BU-Back-Up Lamps.

The Emulator will work great with any vehicle equipped with many different aftermarket brake controllers.
