Troubleshooting Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller Installed on 1999 f350


I have a voyager brake control. Green light does not come on when trailer plugged in. No brakes or manual brake control. Fuses ok. Not good at sending pictures.

If you're not getting a green light, it means that the controller is not 'reading' the trailer. This is usually caused by a corroded or damaged 7-way connector on the vehicle or on the trailer itself. Closely examine the pins/sockets of the connector on the vehicle and the trailer. If you can see any green or white corrosion, it's possible that the corrosion has spread to the interior of the connector and is preventing voltage from passing through. Cleaning or replacing the connector(s) will likely solve your problem. Worn or damaged brake magnets can also cause this. To check, you'll need to pull one of the hubs off and examine the face of the magnet that rides against the inside of the hub. If the magnet is worn to the point where the interior copper wiring is visible, you'll want to replace the magnets.

If the connectors and brake magnets check out okay, take a look at the troubleshooting article I've linked. You can use a circuit tester like part # 40376 to ensure the controller's getting power, and to see if it's putting out voltage on the blue output wire when the manual brake switch is pulled.
