The brake controller may not be compatible depending on how the trailer brakes are wired . You can rewire the brakes on the trailer to make them work. Do a google search for more info. Obviously, you have trailers with two different wiring patterns.

You're right, I did have to rewire the trailer but not due to different wiring patterns. There were corroded connections at the axle and once I found those it works great. Thanks for the post.
#276 of 303 2001 Silverado Tow Wiring Issue
Jul 30, 2011 (4:34 pm)
Getting my 2001 Silverado 1500 ready for hunting season. I'm having a problem with my tow wiring. Using a tester, I realized that when my daytime running lights are on, my turn signals work fine, but as soon as I flip over to regular headlights, I don't have any turn signals. Anybody have a suggestions regarding my issue? Never towed anything with this truck before (I bought it last year). Thanks for any and all help:)

I have a similar issue. I have a 2006 Silverado 1500. When my trailer is connected and my headlights are on, my cruise control does not work, and my right signal will not work. Everything works fine when just the headlight switch is set for automatic.

My question is for gmcustsvc, I have an 05' sierra hd with the trailer package. my dealership installed brake controller stopped working so i replaced it with a new one. i have no trailer brakes at the back of the truck trailer connector. My question is , do the trailer leads work as a negative or a positive lead in otherwords should my test light have one end on the negative as i have been doing, or should i be testing off the positive (hot)side, also, are there any other fuses beside the ones behind the driverside tailight. thanks for any help you can give me.

Hi Christina, my vin# is 1GTHK29285E104548 and I am not sure how to give you my contact info since edmunds discourages posting my E-mail in a message. Heres what I 've discovered so far. brake lights work on the truck, but not on the trailer connection. At the trailer connection I have everything except brake lights. all fuses look good, brake lights on truck even work with brake controller. found two 7.5 amp fuses behind drivers rear tail light,b dirty but intact. The connection under the dash for the brake controller tests fine. Could there be another fuse some where? thanks
