I was able to turn on the factory trailer brake so I too get it to come up on my screen, but when I squeeze the trailer brake manually it doesn't show on the screen. The reason I ask is we use the f150 xl for work trucks and they come with trailer brake already installed and when I squeeze the one in the work truck it says something like (no trailer attached). Is there something else I need to do? Thank you Larry
Hi lmcfarlin. Did you get this to work? I just did this last night on my 2015 F150 XL and it worked like a champ. I followed the video, but my options in the IPC module were slightly different. One said something about showing the trailer controls on the screen, and the other was simply to enable the TBC just like in the video.

Hello all, I'm new to this board and am in the same position as the op. Where can I get the extended license? I've bought the obdlink mx Bluetooth and can connect but it says I need the extended license to add the trailer brake controller and gain . I can't wait to see what other things can be added to my truck. Thanks in advance.

What device do I need to connect my laptop with Forscan extended license to my 2017 F-150 to program a OEM brake controller?

This ELM327 has a switch for MS ir HS, but a previous post said they do not work despite reviews saying otherwise on amazon?

Just looking for a good, cheap way to activate the brake controller.

Hey alexj1870, did you figure it out? Did you make the switch work?
