Check the wires at the trailer connector, sounds like something got shorted. If you see any chaffing on the wires or cuts, fix and move to a better location. Does your trailer brake controller lite up like there is a trailer connected?

Message center displaying "Wiring Fault On Trailer":
This may occur due to water intrusion/corrosion in the trailer connector socket or the connector behind the socket. If corrosion is present, replace the socket and harness and lube with silicone dielectric grease. If there are no signs of water, perform normal diagnosis. Broadcast Message 7052, 7108.

good luck
