Anyone wire a factory brake controller into a pre 05 truck ? (Wiring diagrams)

I am in need of a brake controller to replace my broken Jordan.

Has anyone wired a factory brake controller into a pre 05 truck ?

I know it ties into the ECM, but one should be able to bypass that ? It uses a pressure sensor on the brake circuit ?

Anyone have a used Brakesmart they want to sell ?

Thanks

My bad guys. I read it wrong. I missed the factory brake controller part.

There is a harness for the 05+ trucks. I want to put a pressure controlled brake controller in my '99.

I have a Jordan Ultima right now (cable operated) but the cable part is broken. I am thinking of converting it to pressure operation.

The Jordons work excellent. Best brake controller I have ever had.

Sounds like the Maxbrake is what you want to get it setup similar to. I got to tow a huge load with one of those and that was by far the best setup I have ever used in a truck. Works off hydraulics same as the 05+ ford factory systems but unlike the ford system it is spec'd to and does work with hydraulic trailer systems.

Ford AFAIK is the only manf to go to hydraulic sensor compared to Fiat and Gov Motors which are electronic not hydraulic input.


MaxBrake not cheap by any means but at least from my brief use very nice. Best I have ever driven. It created one unit stopping not a truck with a trailer. very smooth
