Brake controller issue....

Hi all,

Last week I noticed that the red light (that illuminates when I press the brake pedal) on my brake controller is staying on constantly, even when the truck is off. I called the shop that installed the controller and all I got was that they felt the 7-pin receiver may be corroded/dirty. I guess this is possible even though it is only about 1.5 years old. The receiver has a spring loaded cover and it still works fine. Regardless, will that cause that light to stay on continuously? I was thinking more like a broken wire? I'm sure I can replace the receiver myself cheaper than they will charge me to replace it. Thoughts?
