2012 Dodge Ram 3500 laramie. Consumer states problem with the brake controller the consumer stated a dealer helped him install a universal brake controller, but it did not work correctly. The consumer stated he was able to use it, with the hand control, but not the foot control. The brakes would become very hot from trying to stop the equipment trailer without the brake controller working properly. The consumer stated when the brakes overheated, it damaged other components. Also, the headlights would go out at random times while driving at night. There was an electrical burning smell emitting from the vehicle. The consumer also stated the vehicle needed a new wiring harness and new axles. Updated 08/14/12
