Mine was put on the right side of the steering column.Hi Guys, thanks for your replies. Picked up my launch edition treg, wired my redarc brake controller up, no probs, connector was in the battery box. Just cant find where to put the remote head in the dash. Pulled everything out that I could in the dash. couldn't find a spot with enough depth. Would somebody post a photo of where they put their remote head, and possibly what was pulled to get to it. Thanks in advance
Hi MalaudiSo far I've completed the wiring for the brake controller, just need to plug it in. I'm thinking about the diode though. The brake controller is triggered by pin 3 of G508 (black/red wire) from the trailer module, but in addition to being triggered by that wire, the redarc controller also sends a 12V signal up that wire to activate the brake lights when the redarc intervenes. I'm just wondering how the trailer module will react when 12V is applied to it from the redarc (red trigger wire) back into it? If I was to install a diode, it would probably be there. I'm waiting to borrow a friends trailer to plug into the back so as to activate the trailer module and then experiment with that trigger wire.
Hi Mal, Haven,t put the diode in yet. Apparently has to be closer to the towbar , not in the G508 line. If you don't put it in, it only causes a problem,when the manual button is pressed. normal foot brake operation, no effect. Do you have schematics of the TCM. The anode of the diode would have to go between pin6 and Tcm, and G508 straight to p6. Thats how I read it anyway. Hope it helpsHi Michael, just wondering if you installed a diode in that trigger line (pin 3 of G508 connector) or just left it out? Or if you installed a diode at all? I'm not sure how the trailer module would react to 12V being fed into it!
