Brake Controller Installation

I just finished installing a Mopar trailer brake controller on my 2014 Grand Cherokee, and wanted to say that it was super easy. The step by step instructions that came with the controller were spot on. My jeep came with a factory towing package that includes a connector under the dash for the controller. The whole installation was truly plug and play. The only hmmm moment was when after reconnecting the battery, the rear hatch would not close automatically. I had the hatch open while the battery was disconnected. When any of the buttons were pushed that should close the hatch a unique alarm sounded. After trying the buttons inside the hatch, on the dash, and on the key fob, I pushed the hatch closed manually, and that did the trick. All the buttons work fine now.

Re: Brake Controller Installation

To make factory accessories operate properly you may have to update the vin with the proper. Accessory code and reconfigure the car has to be done via witec I've seen a lot of installs done by owners that don't work esp fog lamps Bluetooth etc good luck
