Search the forums and you will see stories like this from every brand. You have been given good advice and I would be shocked if its truck at this point. These trucks are sensitive to voltage I have a 2015 3500 and had similar issues with trailer brake warning on BRAND new 2016 Wildcat and BRAND new truck. End result was brake issues on brand new trailer straight off the lot. Has anyone pulled all for drums on the trailer and checked trailer brakes? A wire rubbing internally will act just as you describe throwing codes to the truck randomly.

I understand. But:
A. 3 dealers could not fix
B. GM won't buy your truck
C. You refuse to troubleshoot yourself, with the good advice given here.
What are your other choices, if GM won't help you, and you won't help yourself?

Have not been on in two weeks, sorry. My trouble was without a trailer. Just general driving did it.

From all the post here you still have not taken the action that most folks have suggested. I'll bet it's not the truck. You just looking to get something and give a good products bad name. Maybe you should have bought the other brand. Maybe try one and see how your tt and other tv react. Later RJD

Ever check to see how much you will spend on an attorney to get it lemon lawed? Its not cheep.
You will loose way less, if you just sell it privately.

As being a current tech, and also pretty savy with rvs, I'd also recommend trying pulling another trailer or switching the trailer to another gm vehicle. The symptoms may not be the same on another make, but thats not the manufacturer's fault. Every manufacturer uses different programs and management systems so you have to test with similar make vehicles.

You keep saying you had the truck dealership go over the trailer wiring not rv people. That is not their specialty do they could miss some. We have given you advice. At this point you seem determined not to try anything to fix this. Why post here then? I understand how frustrating it is to have a problem that can't be replicated or fixed. I have been down that road with my old Ford f250. I was willing to try anything reasonable to get to bottom of the problem. You can rent a trailer from a uhaul dealership. You can ask your rv dealership if they have something you can test tow. There are lots of ways to try towing another trailer. You could also try borrowing a friend's truck or renting a truck to tow your trailer and see if the problem occurs. Bottom line, you need to try to help get this fixed. I understand not wanting to on a new vehicle but sometimes you just have to.

Sorry, just trying to emphasize that there is a cost associated with the avenue the op was wanting to head.

FYI for followers of this thread. The issue that bridgekev is having, is;
1) very unusual, very few vehicles affected by this issue.
2) results in abs light coming on, with diagnostic trouble codes stored for wheel speed sensors.
3) being actively investigated by GM engineering.


This is not an issue of message stating trailer disconnected, or check trailer wiring, those are usually due to a trailer brake wiring issue.
It is hoped a solution will be available soon.

Thanks for the info!
Yes i was aware of the issue, i just know from a diagnostic standpoint, you have to have similar conditions and equipment and ALL the variables to trouble shoot the problem.

Trailer towing with his camper being the said issue that seems to make the difference as per op.

I wonder if there is an axle tube or axle bearing issue where some kind of movement or flexing of the parts is causing the issue when the suspension is loaded from the trailer weight.
-Tacky if you find out, id love to know what the outcome is to this, even if you just pm me.
You never know i might need to try to fix this issue in the future. I only own gm vehicles and have been a 3rd generation gm tech.

I know this doesn't answer the OP's problem, but just to show you how a totally unrelated issue can create havoc on these new ECMs and PCMs, here is what I've just been through.
I went out to crank the truck [2013 Silverado 2500HD Duramax/Allison] and nada. All the idiot lights lit up, but not even a click. After 30 min of trying to figure out what was going on, I tried holding the key to the start position AND opening the door at the same time. Engine cranked instantly. I had heard the door locks lock when the door was first closed and thought that might have something to do with it since they don't normally do that.
What had happened was a tiny diode in the dashcam had gone bad and was sending erratic electrical signals back to the ECM/PCM because that was the circuit the dashcam was taking its power from. It was wiping out my tunner, radar detector, TPMS, door locks and electric door lockout switch on the armrest.
One little unrelated miniscule problem had completly wipped me out. I replaced the diode and added several more through out the other devices just in case any of them buy the farm later on.
