Arrow Ram truck Integrated Trailer Brake Control Broken Handle

Ram truck Integrated Trailer Brake Control Broken Handle (the one that adjusts the brakes. Can the handle be replaced on its own or will the whole module need replacement?

A good reason to upgrade and toss the OEM. I hated mine. Absolutely useless even pinned on 10. Tekonsha

Geez sorry, the whole module needs to be replaced. That’s why I said it’s a good time to upgrade. You can phone around and look for toaster handles if you want no one carries them.

Obviously yours still works,just won’t have the manual function.

Not trying to resurrect an old thread but I was wondering how you hooked up your Tekonsha. Did you splice into the integrated controller's wiring, run all new wires or is there an adapter that will make it plug and play?

Thanks

being you resurrected it.
1) The factory brake IMO is great, applies brakes based on pedal pressure and speed very smooth
2) If your controller works correctly I would not worry about the missing manual piece, I can not think of a reason to use manual application.

A specialty electric automotive company did the splicing for me. So Spliced as far as I could see. It was a neat clean job. The GAIN is more adjustable and now can lock up the brakes if need be.

The issue that I have with my integrated controller is that it has a delayed release. I am not sure if this is something common with this controller but other integrated controllers that I have owned before have not had this issue and/or feature.
What I mean by delayed release is that when I take my foot off the brake pedal the trailer brakes remain applied for a duration of about 1.5sec.
It dosen't sound like this would be a big deal but when I am trying to back up it is quite irritating. My current fix for this is to reduce the output to 0.5 but that only makes it less irritating (reducing the output to 0.0 makes the issue worse).
On the positive side, the controller works great when decelerating and provides excellent proportional braking and control while driving. It's just the starting out that poses an issue for me.

Thank you for your help and advice.

Thank you for getting back to me.

I have a P3 controller stored in my truck with bulk wiring and supplies just in case my integrated controller crapped the bed. When I saw this thread I was hoping that there might be a wiring pigtail that would make the controller more plug-n-play, so I thought that I would ask.

Thanks again for your help,
Tom

Mine does that too, it is the hill assist feature you can turn it off in the evic.

I've looked for something like that in the evic system but could not find it. Do you think you could point me in the right direction with where I need to be in the system to turn it off?

Thank you for your help,

Ignition switch in run position, truck running or not, hill start assist is under system setup in EVIC, I believe it is about 5 or 6 down in the list

Edit: shifter must be in park
