Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

This adapter plugs into the 4-pin connector in your vehicle's junction box. The box is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, just above the carpeting.


To install your electric brake controller you need to connect the wiring of the controller to your vehicle. Certain manufacturers offer pre-wired options, typically known as tow packages, wherein these wires are run for you from the dash to the trailer connector on the back of your vehicle. Often, a brake controller wiring harness is included with your tow package. This harness plugs into a port beneath your dash and connects to the four wires of the brake controller. If, however, you have a brake controller with a plug in place of the four loose wires, you can use the Tekonsha adapter.


This adapter requires no hardwiring. It is designed to plug directly into your electric brake controller for the simplest installation possible. Because there are no wires to connect, installation is not permanent. You can unplug and remove your brake controller at any time and securely stow it away.

Video Transcript for Tekonsha Accessories and Parts 3016 Review

Today we're going to review part number 3016. This is the Tekonsha plug in wiring adapter for the Draw-tight Tekonsha electric brake controllers. This is a vehicle-specific item. This part is designed to fit the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 light-duty trucks, the new body style. This wiring adapter will ease installation of your electric brake controller. It has a custom connector end which will plug into the built in port right here beneath the dash of your vehicle.

The other end right here will plug into the back of your Draw-tight or Tekonsha electric break controller. Now the compatible brake controllers that that works with is in the time delay version. It will work with the Draw-tight activator 1, activator 2, activator 3 and the Tekonsha power trap. In the proportional line of brake controllers, it is compatible with the Tekonsha prodigy, the Tekonsha P2, the P3, the Prinus IQ and the Voyager. This part does come with a limited one-year warranty. Basically what you would do is this end right here as you can see will plug into the factory port on your vehicle.

This end here will plug into the back of the brake controller. That should do it for the review on part number 3016, the Tekonsha plug in wiring adapter for the Draw-tight and Tekonsha electric brake controllers. .

I received my product faster than expected . I couldn't be happier with the products I purchased from etrailer . The staff at etrailer is the best I have seen . The staff gives you updates on shipping until it arrives at your door and they also are very helpful in how to install there products. I purchased a Tekonsha P-3 and a wiring harness for a 2014 Chevy Silverado , I had it installed in 15 minutes. Will definitely be doing more business with Etrailer. Great people to work with. 128716

I purchased this for my 2014 Chevy Silverado long bed regular cab 4x4 work truck. It plugged in and worked fine and is great quality. The only disappointment was that it is too short in length. I would have liked to mount the controller right of the steering wheel, but it does not reach. It is only long enough to reach left of steering wheel. Not the end of the world. It works great. 121121

Ordered Tekonsha Prodigy P2 with the per wired adapter so you just plug one end into the electrical panel under the dash and the other end into the brake controller. Mount the controller holder and slide controller in till it snaps. Plug the pigtail in and ready to tow. Was great to actually have customer service and the operator Matt really knew the product. 138850

Since GM, in their infinite wisdom neglected to include a controller pigtail with the new 2014 trucks there has been a ton of FUD surrounding the installation of aftermarket brake controllers. This cable fills that gap. It fits perfectly and makes installation of a Tekonsha controller literally plug and play. I suspect this will be a hot seller. 105688
