Trailer brake controller
well i have had my truck for about a week now and i finally hooked the trailer up to it. i plugged the trailer harness into the bumper and check the EVIC to see if it was connected and it showed that i was, then a message popped up saying "service trailer brake system" and a little red picture of a trailer with a line through it(not connected?) popped up, i cant find this picture in the owners manual or how to fix it. i checked the running light, brake light, left and right turn signal and the brakes on the trailer and they all work. i scrolled down to the Brake control screen on the EVIC and it shows the white picture with the trailer and no line through it(connected? also unplugged trailer then shows then line, plugged back in and line goes away)and shows the bar graph adjusting when i brake. i drove with the trailer about 30 miles with all lights and brakes working and the message is still there. now EVERY TIME i start the truck up without the trailer connected i still get the "service trailer brake system" and the picture with the red trailer with the line though it. Has this happened to anyone else? would anyone happen to know how to clear this message?
Sorry for the long message
