trailer brakes?

Recommended Posts

My trailer brakes quit working so I bought a new Tekonsha Primus IQ Brake Controller. The Controller has a wiring harness that plugs into the Controller, the other end of the wiring harness has no plug, just wires. The old Tekonsha Controller was connected to the wiring harness with wire connectors [no oem plug?] While disconnecting the old Controller I cut the hot wire and It sparked [i must have hit metal and grounded it out.

This is the Problem:

The hot wire is no longer hot. I have checked all fuses and none found are blown out. Is there another inline fuse that I have missed? It is very tight under the dash around the Headlight switch area and many wires.

Have any of you ever had to deal with this type of problem? What was your remedy?.

Thank you, Tom

I replaced both fuse and circuit breaker and now I have power. I called the trouble shooting number on the Break Controler installation directions. The harness wires color code was different than the manufacturer had on their schematics, I was puzzled so I disconnected the control wires from the exposed truck harness. I found where someone had patched the wires so I disconected the patch and found the oem wiring harness which had color code provided by the Break Control folks and all is working now as expected. I thank all who helped me with this project.
