Trailer brake intermittent

This may sound crazy, but if it didn't happen to me just yesterday I wouldn't believe it.
Getting same readings as you on my 2015 Chev 2500 with HD Tow and factory integrated BC.. Just yesterday.
After checking everything 2x. I pulled out truck owner manual (always a last resort)
It said to un plug TT from receptacle, turn off TV wait five min start over and I be damned it reset and all was good.
Not saying this is your problem, but worked for me, and I'm still amazed at the internal workings of these complex systems....they simply talk to one another.
Try it......nothing to lose. Or consult your TV manual if you have integrated system. If not may be a moot point. Good luck..

Possibly just a ground problem when they moved it.

Had two Chevrolets (09, 12) had under hood wiring not connected from factory. Lighting worked, but no brakes.
Truck dealer set them up for me.

Same problem on GMC 1 ton no trailer connected

I had to cancel our vacation and spend 4 hours at the GMC dealership to find out it was a trailer break connector causing the problem. 2 more hours at my trailer brake specialist. He cut out the yellow connector at the break and reconnected each of the wires and shrink wrapped them. Problem solved. Cost was one vacation cut short with our grand daughter and around $400.00 out of pocket. This is a new 2016 36ckts Cedar Creek. Too much trouble getting it back to dealer from our vacation location so I opted to pay on my own. Dealer and factory authorizations can shorten your life on earth. Not worth it.

I had something similar happen and after many hours of scratching my head found that the brake wires went from one side of the trailer to the other inside the axle. All the bouncing around from the travels wore the insulation off from rubbing on the rough inside of the axle. Replacing the wires and running them outside solved the problem. Just a wild thought.

I had a problem very similar to this! Turns out the brake controller I had installed wasn't strong enough to pick up the LED signals from my truck and trailer to the controller. We ordered a different brake controller that was for LED trucks and trailers and problem solved!

Had brakes, no problem. Then out of the blue I had no brakes on the tt. Got the message on my dash stating "Wiring Fault In Trailer". Tested brake pin on truck and had 12v. Activated brake pin on tt and brakes worked. Long story short, the truck brake pin and the tt brake pin were not making contact when plugged together. Realigned the pins and now have brakes. Also no more wiring fault messages. Hope this helps.
