No Trailer Connected But Decimal Showing on Draw-Tite Activator Brake Controller


Should there be any lights on with no trailer connected? Have to decimal dots. Have same controller in another truck that has no lights on with out trailer connected.

If I'm understanding whats going on here correctly, your Draw-Tite Activator brake controller # 5504 is showing a dot on the LED screen without a trailer connected. When you're showing a decimal on all of the time with the Draw-Tite Activator without the trailer connected it means that the Red wire is connected to the wrong side of the stoplight
switch or to wrong switch (cruise control). You'll want to go back through your wiring and make sure that everything is connected correctly.

For reference, without a trailer connected, your Draw-Tite brake controller should not show anything on the display.

If you can confirm that your Red wire is connected to the appropriate wire correctly at the stop light switch on your vehicle, please let me know and I can help you continue to troubleshoot.
