Troubleshooting Curt Brake Controller Not Working With Headlights On


I recently purchased a Wolf pup trailer. I am pulling it with a 2002 Toyota tundra. I noticed that when I turn on my lights my Curt brake control dose not sent the power to the breaks to activate. It will only work if i have the lights off. Any ideas on what could do to fix it?


Expert Reply:

If your Curt brake controller connects to your 2002 Toyota Tundra via the vehicle port under you dash, like what we see with the Assure Controller # C49UR and Wiring Adapter # C51515, then there really shouldn't be any reason why your headlights being on should change anything.

I recommend using a circuit tester like part # PTW2979 to check all of the wires going to your brake controller as well as all of the wires going into the 7-Way at the back of your truck since it sounds like you have some wire functions crossing somewhere.

Attached are some helpful articles for you to check out as well.
