Green Light On all the Time for Curt Venturer Brake Controller


I have a 2015 ram 1500 and I have purchased the the wire harness for it. How ever when I plug it in the controller shows a green constant light. I dont have the brakes pressed and there is no trailer connected. What could be the cause?


Expert Reply:

A single green light with the Curt brake controller part # C51110 means that no trailer is connector and the manual override or brake pedal is pressed. If you are seeing that all the time you most likely have a short between the power wire of the controller (black) and the stoplight wire (red) which makes the controller think the pedal is applied.

Use a circuit tester like part # PTW2993 to probe the red wire of the controller. If it's seeing voltage all the time then my theory is correct. Let me know what you find and we can go from there. You can also check to make sure the override lever isn't partially slide too.
