Curious if anyone else has experienced this. When the brake pedal is pushed I get the 2 blue lights on the dial, first and last lights, then on random occasions I will get a different light staying on when brake pedal is released. Random spot and color and not all the time. Tap the pedal and it disappears.
Ideas?

My spectrum does the exact same thing.

For the two blue lights: the manual states that those lights are just showing a brake signal is received by the controller, but there is no trailer connected. It will turn on those blue lights every time you press the brakes without a trailer on. (If it does that while you are towing, it means that your trailer has become unplugged!)

And never while towing, but randomly a different colored single** LED lights up. As you said, different spot, different colour. (**mentioning single LEDs as I know the manual says that 2 LEDs lighting up are there to show errors, with no mention of a single LED)

Just got off of the phone with Curt and the single light has to do with the box doing a self check for trailer detection and since no trailer, it in a since is getting confused and will leave that random light on. Causes no safety issues and only is an annoyance. They are seeing that with the newer vehicles and randomly are doing it.
They are sending me a new box that has and update in to prevent the single light. Once I get it and installed I will update this thread.
So far very pleased with the support and customer care from Curt.

Quick update since installing the replacement controller. Have not had any random lights after releasing the brake pedal so appears the updated controller fixed the issue. Great customer service from Curt.
