Hello, the exhaust brake option is set up during programing the ECU. You'll need to go back and have them activate it.

Good morning and welcome to JustAnswer!!

My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.

There is no option to activate the brake or not when we flash the ECM. When you press the button on the dash does it work then?
