Having issues with the brakes on a 3500 # axle engaging at first then releasing a few seconds later. After they release, brake controller is showing short .
Ohm'd all the wires , they are all a1.5 ohms plus. What should the magnets read?

Assuming you have 10" or 12" dia brakes --- Dexter axles specs are 3.2 to 3.5 ohms. To locate a possible short, you'll need to isolate each magnet and test individually.

Have you verified that you have a full 12V at each magnet?

Thanks Horndog, that's what I was looking for. And yes, I have isolated each magnet for testing.
