    Ok, 07 sierra classic which i have had for about 8 months which has the trailer package. bought a 17ft expandable travel trailer. the electronic brake control light is always on even without the trailer hooked up. so there is a problem with either the brake control unit or the trailer package.
    my question is how hard is it to diagnose the problem and what should i use to diagnose the problem?

    any insight?

    Disconnect the harness to the trailer plug and see if it goes out. What kind of controller is it?

    If the light is on, there is a load on the controller. Could be corrosion in the trailer plug, or a bent pin.

    I hated my Voyager. Seemed like it was on or off.

    so the way it is right now is that with no trailer hooked up the green light is on but when i touch the brake pedal the light goes out. it almost seems completely backwards.
