ERROR | Brake Gain Not Recalled

Recommended Posts

2020 - 3500HD Duramax @4000 miles

2018 - Jayco Northpoint 5th Wheel

2016 - Ranger Z518 Bass Boat (Surge Brakes)

 

Sometimes when I hook to the 5th wheel I get the error "Brake Gain Not Recalled".  When this error occurs it also feels like the brakes are not being fully applied when manually overridding (for a brake check).

 

Dealer has had the truck twice now , this time for 2 weeks.  GM is telling the dealer that both my trailers have bad wiring.  I did not have this issue with a 2018F450 pulling for 2 years.

 

Has anyone else seen this issue?

 

Thanks

I get that error all the time. Sometimes shortly afterwards, I’ll get a message saying that the brake controller has been recalled.
Even if I don’t get that second message, when I confirm the controller setting, the preset output is always at the correct setting anyway.

I just associate it as one of the numerous glitches that this system had.

same here, I get the error about every 4-5 trailer connections, but other than dismissing the screen, the gain is set correctly, and everything works fine.

Ditto the above.  I find everything works best if the ignition is off when I plug in the pigtail. However, I've never had the trailer brakes not work properly regardless of the DIC message.  I just ignore the message if it says brake gain wasn't recalled.

Yes, like others have stated I get the error but it still sets the gain properly. 
maybe next update will fix it.

I’m in same boat as the rest here... but it only does it with my 35’ cougar all other trailers it hooks up fine.

There is a recall on the 1500 that I have I know for the break controller. I bet the HD are having the same issue.  I called to see if I needed to have it looked at before I pulled my trailer, the tech said it did not effect the operation of the break controller. Just if there was a perfect storm of things that happen, if I remember correctly, he said something like this would happen. I too get it regularly and always seems to be set the same.

Also a regular for this issue.  Hope GM is actually working on it!

Ditto, it has a mind of it's own

ITBS system is not quite ready for prime time. Taking my truck and camper to a RV tech to see if he can make it work.  Trailer brakes connect intermittently.  Some times I get the trailer brake gain not recalled.

Like everyone else, I also get this issue.  Occasionally it will even say "no trailer connected" but the brake gain still works.  When that happens, I shut the truck off and restart it and everything works fine (this has only happened a couple of times).  I figure it is a software glitch and hopefully a future update resolves it.

Add me to the list of occasionally seeing that error message.

Ditto for me as well, I have had a few brake gain messages...but the trailer brakes always work.....but I always check before getting under way.
