On some of those vehicles cursed with the pentagram of chrysler, you have to have the dealer enable the computer to power the extra curcits in addition to finding the loose wire and hooking it up. My 06 cherokee was one of those vehicles. I employed creative wiring techniques to skirt the $300 penalty. I also had to install a diode on the brake controller trip wire as the controller was casuing the ABS to freak out when connected prior to the diode.

2009 Chevy Suburban with a Tekonsha Envoy brake controller don't have brakes

I want to thank everyone; finally, the problem was found. I called Tekonsha 1-800 number and they told me to check if there was enough power on the red batt. wire from the truck which was connected to the brake controller, the problem was there (weak connection). Now I used a much better quality connector and everything is working very well.
