Disc Brake/ElecDraulic Trouble

Hello,

We were hitching up last night for vacation, Hydraulic pressure is holding the brake system and will not release. We have disconnedted the batteries and released the pressure from the bleeder (at master cylinder) and the trailer will move. when you reconnect the battery, it locks up again. Any troubleshooting advice or thoughts?

Charles,
It sounds like the EH Actuator is being given a signal to "brake".
Could be the breakaway switch. Make sure eh breakaway switch is not engaged. The pin should be all the way in.
Another option could be a defective brake controller, or even a defective electro-hydraulic unit.

Removed the ElecDraulic unit this morning and opened it. Driver transistors on the circuit board burned. Love the smell of burned electrical parts!

Linc54,

Who manufactured your ElecDraulic unit? Just curious.

Regards,
Henry
