Technical Service Bulletin #1901
While using an Echo brake controller on certain Ford applications with a "Smart Trailer Tow" and GM applications with "Advanced Trailering System", the controller may not provide the proper brake signal to the trailer. The vehicle manufacturer has changed their systems so that when the vehicle detects a trailer hookup, the output signal changes from a constant analog to a PWM signal. This type of signal may not be fully compatible with the Echo unit.
- 2015 or newer Ford and Lincoln vehicles with a "Smart Trailer Tow" package
- 2020 GMC Sierra / Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500 with an "Advanced Trailering System"
- 2019 GMC Sierra / Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with an "Advanced Trailering System"
