Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

This adapter plugs into the 4-pin connector on your vehicle's built-in brake control wiring harness. The harness is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal.


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.

This etrailer part "Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers - Dodge - #3020-P" is a PERFECT fit for my 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Tekonsha P3 brake controller. After a LOT of research I discovered that in the Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ series (1999-2004) the 2001 model with "factory installed tow package", was the only year that did not have the 'the tucked away blue wire running back to the 7-pin trailer connector at the rear of the car. Instead a prewired connector was installed. According to the Jeep WJ users site, the Mopar part #56020142AB (wire harness with the appropriate connector for 2001 Jeep GC) had been discontinued, but Tekonsha Corp. (brake controller manufacturer) had a suitable replacement part. The page link on WJ Jeeps to the correct part at Tekonsha was broken and a search of Tekonsha's website produced no wiring that would even remotely help. After crawling under my dash and removing the electrical fuse cover I found a blue connector. I took a photo of the connector so that I hopefully could find a connector that would help me avoid a complete engine compartment to rear bumper wiring installation. Here on etrailer I found the brake controller I wanted and started looking at what I needed to make it operational. I tried everything I could think of (including writing the etrailer tech) to find out if the "Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers - Dodge - #3020-P would work for my 2001 Jeep. No one was certain. Sooo... I decided that at a cost of $14.99 it was worth it to buy - try - and return if necessary. I also figured if 'worst-came-to-worse' I may want to cut off the Dodge connector and use this shielded wire set instead of Tekonsha's wire harness by snipping off the Dodge connector. 5 minutes out of the box my Tekonsha P3 was lit up and a test light confirmed I had power to the factory installed 7-pin trailer connector at the rear using this etrailer part. It snapped into both connections perfectly. The 30" length sounded adequate, but looked short out of the box. It turns out I have many mounting options with this length. Although it may not be mounted for a day or 2, I've decided to mount it on the left side of the steering wheel column. That's well out of the way of my long legs and yet in easy reach for manually engaging the trailer brake with the hand lever on my brake controller while driving. I would recommend "Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers - Dodge - #3020-P" for ANY brake controller installed in a 2001 Jeep GC with the factory installed Mopar/Dodge connector. Just cut off the Tekonsha connector and butt connect the harnesses: BLUE to trailer connector * WHITE to ground - * RED to BRAKE switch (or recommended brake pedal connection point) * BLACK to battery + Attached photos: original Mopar brake controller harness for factory installed tow package 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee; etrailer's photo of the dodge connector for Tekonsha controller for visual comparison; a photo of the connector found under my dash; a photo of etrailer part #3020-P connected to my underdash connector; a photo showing the reach of the cable for a possible dash mount; and a photo showing the possible reach for a hidden ash tray mount. 175397

I purchased the Tekonsha P3 proportional brake controller and the Plug-in Wiring adaptor for my Dodge Ram Diesel 2005. It shipped promptly and arrived on schedule. I plugged it into the under-dash socket in about 30 seconds and tried it out before installing it; it powered up immediately and everything looked good. It took a few minutes to install the P3 bracket to the dashboard just to right of the steering column and about the level of my knee. The adaptor has enough length to put it left or right of the steering column, but not very high on the dash. The adaptor made the installation quite simple – gathering the tools and deciding controller placement took 20 minutes out of the total 30 minute installation time. The actual installation was to drill 2 holes and screw in 2 screws to the dash and 2 screws to the pocket bracket, then tying the cord to other wiring behind the dash. Settings for electric brakes and other info into the unit took under 2 minutes. Wow! What a difference - the braking was strong, smooth and uniform. I can only compare on my vehicle to braking without a controller unit engaging the trailer brakes, but it showed me how important those brakes are to an easy and safe stop. I have driven other people’s trucks with loaded horse trailers, and their controller units did not give anything like the constant readout of trailer brake voltage and other information this one gives you. This is obviously a high quality unit with everything I need and more. My priority is horse safety on the road and that includes smooth, proportional braking. I like the ability to monitor the voltage of the vehicle system, the volts and amps to the trailer, and troubleshooting capabilities. I spent 6 or 8 hours reading everything on brake controllers before ordering this one, and compared it to several other highly-rated units. While it is available for similar pricing from eBay and other sites, I found etrailer.com's website to make things very easy, such as finding the exact Plug-in Adaptor for my vehicle, finding videos about various controllers, and finding instructions for installing the unit. Thanks to the etrailer.com website, I was able to check under my dash to verify the brake controller plug was there waiting to be used, and I had a very realistic idea of the installation procedure in advance. Getting the Plug Adaptor in the same shipment was important too, and let me install it immediately. I was glad I ordered from etrailer.com and would not hesitate to order from them again. 164082





Comments

This review was so helpful after all my own research that it helped me feel cofident in my decision to try this connector on my 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the factory tow package. Like she said. It takes longer to decide where to put it than it did to take it out of the box, plug it in and tie the cable neatly in place.One thing that she didnt say is that the sheathing around the 4 wires keeps the bundle as neat and clean as Ive ever seen in a wiring harness.

Ordered product, and was shipped out the next day. Got in mail a few days later. Very easy install, I removed the old brake controller and installed the wiring adapter (just plugs in under the dash). Mounted controller to metal mounting bracket. This controller works great, I am very familiar with other controllers, I really like the proportional braking, brakes work great on my landscape and dump trailer. I tried light braking to heavy braking, adjusts properly and quickly to situation, no lockup with empty or loaded trailer. I pull trailers 5-6 days a week and I am glad to have a working brake controller again. Very satisfied with this product, just hope it lasts longer than the other brand I installed. 95931

I haven't tried to hook it up but it appears to be exactly what I needed to hook up my Prodigy brake controller in my 2002 Dodge 2500. Shipped quickly also. 100100

The plug fits well, but is a little hard to get in due to the position of the factory wiring. 68408

I purchased a P3 brake controller and wiring replacement for my dodge ram truck from E-Trailer and could not be happier with the service and the products. My order was delivered very quickly. The wiring replacement was as good as the OEM part that originally came with the truck. Installation was plug and play once I decided where I wanted to place the bracket for the controller. If this 53 year old lady can do it, anybody can. It was easy. I might add that I shopped around to see what I could get this same controller and wiring for locally and the cheapest was over $100 more than I spent for the same components from E-Trailer! 7615

This is the second time I've ordered products from Etrailer. They shipped the products extremely quickly (both times) and I received them substantially earlier than expected. I previously ordered a Prodigy brake controller and all the parts needed to do a full install, since my truck was not wired for a trailer. I just purchased a 2006 Ram 3500 and used this cable to connect to the factory harness. It worked as advertised and I was able to reuse my exisiting controller without any problems. I will definitely be using Etrailer for future purchases based on their excellent customer service and pricing. 22503

Great product, just wasn't happy with the way shipping went, not sure if that's something you guys can do anything about but I had it shipped via ups and for whatever reason ups dropped it off at the post office, not even the post office I use. I was lucky enough to have checked the tracking update and saw it had been dropped off at the post office the next town over so I run down there and they were nice enough to keep an eye out for it and called me when they found it, if it wasn't for me checking up on it, it would have been sent back to you guys. 178246

I had the benefit of having a factory installed tow package on my 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 pick up. With that being said, I was still unsure of if what I saw online would work. I contacted etrailer.com via email and they answered all my questions and concerns within a few emails. I bought the product and install extremely easy. My only complaint is that the cable is not very long. Approx 3ft or so. But other then that, it works great and help me tow my bobcat on my 16' trailer with ease of stopping. 103305

Installation was a breeze, I used it last sunday towing my stock trailer, the digital display is nice. The gal I spoke to at etrailer was very helpful for me while deciding which controller to install. I regularly tow a 16' steel stock trailer as well as occasionally tow brick and masonry materials, the p3 proportional was a major step up from my old school drawtite electric controller. The self leveling feature of the p3 has already been helpful for me. I am pleased with the product. 42792

I installed the electronic 3020-p break controller with the harness for a dodge ram in about 20 minutes. It was about as easy as it could be with the correct products from E-Trailer. I have not hooked up to my travel trailer as yet but foresee no major problems after reading the supplied directions for doing so. Thanks again. I could take pictures of the installation but don't know how to attach and send them to you. Thanks for great products. 95537

by: Rusty B10/20/2014


Good product - install was easy - had the install done in 30 minutes - hardest part was deciding where to mount it in my vehicle. I used the included 'housing' for the unit and mounted that housing to my dash so that all I have to do is clip into place when needed. My vehicle has factory tow already installed so all I had to do was plug in the correct harness to the unit and the other end into the tralier brake clip on my vehicle. 156853

I purchased the Tekonsha P-3 and the plug and play harness for a 2006 Dodge ram. Cathy of etrailer was very helpful. I was concerned about shipping and Cathy promised that she would get it out that day. Sure enough I got a follow up e mail letting me know that it went out that day. I even got an e mail letting me know that it has been delivered. Outstanding customer service! 31726

The item arrived on time and worked as designed . I have used E trailer for many items and as always great service, no excellent service. I like the technical information the installation instructions, a lot of work goes into this and it helps. It is not rocket science to plug in a connector......but at least I knew where to look..

While the P3 manual was not easy to follow the unit was eay to install and pretty much set itself up. Worked great - no adujstment time needed it handled the trailer as if I wasn't towing anything. This is my first time towing and first time owning a trailer - it couldn't have been easier. Would highly recommend this to anyone ! 102429

I purchased the p2 and it was very simple to install. The video that came with it was very help full and has some good information. This is my first purchase of an item like this put it plugged into my 2008 Dodge pickup with no problem. Overall it seems to be working good. The price was very really good and it is very easy to install. 34067

The product met all expectations however my truck didnt.. it was a plug and play worked fine for everything except the trailer brake, it seems my truck did not have the complete tow package and I was missing the wire that controlled the brake signal. Lesson learned make sure you have the complete tow package on your truck... 147838

The best on-line purchase experience yet! Easy to find products specific to my truck. I was pleased to see the "MADE IN USA" on the products I wanted!!!

My previous controllers came with a pig-tail type of connection which required tapping into existing wiring. This one was configured specifically for my 2003 Dodge 3500 Ram dually. Once I found the connecting plug under the dash all I had to do was plug this one into it and to my new Tekonsha P3 and I was done. 54678

I needed a brake harness for my 2001 Dodge Dakota. etrailer said this one would work, and it did. Thanks to their video on how to install the brake controller on a vehicle with a factory tow package, I was able to do it myself despite being very technically inept. Went smoothly, no issues. 27462

The Tekonsha Prodigy P3 brake controller works great and the plug-in wiring adapter for Dodge made the installation quick and easy. My next project will be installing electric brakes, drums, and hubs on my 16 ft. bumper pull stock trailer and I will be ordering the parts from etrailer. 107778






- 3020-P

by: Steve10/22/2013


The product shipped fast. Simple plug and play wire harness. No splicing, just plug in and hide the cords. The vehicle I put it in already had factory 7-pin so the plug was right under the dash. I love wiring kits. 30 sec instal time. 10 sec if I would have used a flash light. 104762

by: Bill R.03/19/2011


Installed on a 06 Dodge 3500 Mega Cab. This is as advertised, but it's only about 24 inches long. If you want it to reach the center console you will need to splice in about 12 - 16 inches of more wire, but it's still much easier than splicing the factory wires under the dash. 9866

This vehicle specific plug-in wiring adapter that I purchased along with the Teconsha Electric Brake Controller made the installation in my 2001 Dodge Ram 2500 tow vehicle a snap. No cutting and splicing, just plug it in and mount the controller and you're ready to tow. 36198

I was hoping the wiring harness was a little longer than it was, but it still worked out fine and was definitely worth the extra money to not have to wire anything. I wouldn't buy the brake controller without it! 90527

This made hooking up the 90185 controller to my 08 Ram a breeze. Couldn't have been easier. Only one minor complaint, and that is the cable should be longer. Extra foot or two would earn this an excellent rating. 96777

  • Location of Brake Controller Connector on 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4
  • Thank you for sending the photo, it really makes things easier! The connector you show in your photo is not the connector for installing a brake controller. If you look on the firewall behind the emergency brake, you will see a white wiring junction box. The blue female connector that accepts the # 3020-P brake control wiring adapter is located alongside or on top of this junction box, as you can see in the photo I have edited for you. I have also linked you to an install video that...

  • Brake Controller and Wiring Harness for a 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 with Factory Tow Package
  • Since your 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 already has what is called a factory tow package, all you will need is the Draw-Tite Brake Controller, part # 5100, that you have referenced and the Tekonsha Wire Replacement for Dodge, part # 3020-P. The # 3020-P harness will plug into the back of the brake controller and the plug on the other end will plug into the factory brake controller port located under the dash, above the emergency brake pedal. I have also included a video installation of a proportional...

  • Brake Controller and Wiring for a 2003 Dodge Ram
  • To view a picture of what the plug under your dash should look like you can view our Dodge brake controller guide, click on the provided link. If your truck was equipped with the factory installed 7-way trailer connector, installation will be simple. If you have not already chosen a brake controller, I would recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 along with the wiring adapter, part # 90885 along with the wiring adapter, # 3020-P. One end of the wiring adapter plugs into the blue connector...

  • Electric Trailer Brake Controller Port Location on a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500
  • The brake controller port on a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500 equipped with the appropriate tow package is located under the dash near the emergency brake pedal. It will be taped to another wire bundle and will have the harness, part # 3020-P, connected to it. I have included a link to part 3020-P so you know what it looks like as well as the instructions that describe where to find the brake controller port. The Tekonsha Voyager 9030, part # 39510, should only light up green when there is a trailer...

  • How to Iinstall a Brake Controller on a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland
  • To install a brake controller on the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee you will most likely have to hard wire. From the information I was able to obtain there is a brake controller connection point but the connector is not available aftermarket. If a connector is supplied it will be in one of two locations. The first is under the dash just to the left of the steering column. The second is behind the drivers side kick panel next to the emergency brake pedal. If you find the connector you will...

  • Parts Needed for Setting up a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 For a Trailer with Electric Brakes
  • If your 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 came with a 7-Way trailer connector from the factory it is pre-wired for a brake controller. If this is the case, all you would need is a brake controller and the wiring harness to plug the controller into the port under the dash. Our most popular brake controller is the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 # 90885. It is a pretty easy controller to use and is quite effective. The proper wiring harness for a 2003 Ram with factory 7-Way is the # 3020-P. The whole set up would...

  • Wiring a Brake Controller and a 7-Way Connector On a Dodge 2500
  • With the factory 4-Way connector you will need a brake controller with the proper wiring connection for Dodge vehicles. I would recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy, item # 90185 and adapter item # 3020-P, for your vehicle. This adapter is a vehicle specific brake controller connector. You will also need a 7-Way, item # 30717, adapter. With these parts you can use the specific instructions on our brake controller wiring page for 1995-present Dodge Ram trucks (see link). From the front wheel...

  • Where Is Brake Controller Port Located On 2001 Dodge Durango For Installation Of Adapter, # 3020-P
  • If your 2001 Dodge Durango has the factory installed 7-way trailer connector on the rear bumper, the port for the brake controller should be located near the emergency brake pedal. I am sending a video link of a brake controller installation on a 2003 Dodge Dakota and at the 45 second mark it shows the location of the brake controller port under the dash that should help you locate the port on your vehicle. You can check the port with a circuit tester to see if one of the pins supplies...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 with Factory 4-Way Trailer Connector
  • The items you selected are meant to be replacements for the factory 7-way connector and will not work on your 2005 Dodge Ram with factory 4-way connector. To install a brake controller you will need to use a 4-way to 7-way adapter and then run the proper wires to install the brake controller and 12 volt power to the trailer connector. We have a kit, item # ETBC7, that includes all the necessary parts and wire to install the brake controller and 7-way connector on your vehicle along...

  • Installing a Brake Controller on a 2004 Dodge Ram 2500 with a Factory 4-Flat Trailer Connector
  • Yes, I can most certainly help you. It sounds like you have a factory 4-Way connector at the rear of your 2004 Dodge Ram. So you will need 2 things in order to have the lights and the trailer brakes functional on the trailer. First, you will need a brake controller installed in the cab of the truck to control the electric trailer brakes. Second, you will need a 7 and 4 way Installation Kit, # ETBC7 to allow for all of the functions (lights and brakes) to work on the trailer. For a brake...

  • What Tekonsha Brake Controller Harness Is Needed For A 2010 Dodge Ram 1500
  • Dodge switched their brake adapter pin configuration on the Ram 1500 for the 2010 model year. If your 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 has the factory 7-Way connector you will just need the Tekonsha Brake Control Adapter, part # 3021-P. This will plug into the back of a Tekonsha brake controller and the other end will plug into the brake controller port located under the dash on the drivers side, just left of the steering column, and near the emergency brake pedal. If your Ram 1500 has the factory...

  • Location of Brake Control Connector on 2004 Dodge Ram
  • Your 2004 Dodge should have the connector if the 4-pole connector was factory installed, but it might be a bit tricky to locate. Behind the emergency brake pedal on the firewall is a white junction box. The blue connector you are looking for is located above the junction box, and is sometimes actually pinned to the top of the box. You might need to give the connector a tug to get it free. The connector is sometimes hidden by the wires entering the top of the box, so sometimes you will...

  • Installing Prodigy Brake Controller on 2004 Dodge Ram 1500 with 4-Way Trailer Connector
  • The Tekonsha Prodigy P2 # 90885 and the Dodge Adapter, part # 3020-P is what you need. This wiring adapter would plug into the connector behind the emergency brake pedal, and the adapter would wire color for color to the brake controller. Because your Ram was not equipped with the 7-way trailer connector, you will also need the 4 to 7-way Adapter, part # 37185. When you plug in the brake controller adapter under the dash, the connector will provide the power, ground and stoplight switch...

  • Trailer Brake Controller Installation on a 1998 Dodge Ram 2500
  • The red wire on the Tekonsha Voyager, # 39510, is for the stop light wire on the cold side of the brake switch. In order to find it, you will need a circuit tester, # 3808 if needed) and then probe the wires on the brake switch above the brake pedal. You will need the wire that carries a signal only when the brake pedal is pressed. If you find a wire that also shows a signal when the lights are on or turn signals engaged it is not the correct wire. You need a dedicated brake light wire...

  • Installation of a P3 Brake Controller # 90195 on a 2005 Jeep Liberty
  • You are correct that any of the factory wiring will be protected by fuses and/or circuit breakers. Your vehicle may have a connection under the dash but in our experience the wiring to power the brake controller is not completed. If you check under the dash and can find the mating connector, see photo, to the Tekonsha Wire Replacement for Dodge Vehicles, item # 3020-P, you can test this connection with a Circuit tester, item # 3808 if needed, If the connector has proper function, you...

  • Where is the Brake Controller Port Located on a 1995 Dodge Ram 1500
  • We have pictures of the brake controller port on 1995-2009 Dodge Rams. I have added a link to a brake controller and harness for a 1995 Dodge, part # 90185 and adapter part # 3020-P. Towards the bottom of the page you will see two pictures that show the port with a controller harness plugged in. It is almost directly above the emergency brake.

  • What Causes The Trailer Brakes To Stay On When Brake Controller Shows OC At Random Times
  • OC would mean open circuit, which means that the trailer is not connected. The brake controller does not recognize a connection to the trailer. It will also show OC if you are using this brake controller with an electric over hydraulic braking system on your trailer. The problem is that the trailer brake lights are coming on when your controller is showing OC even if your 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 is not in use. I would recommend to test your brake controller to see if it is working correctly,...

  • How to Install a Voyager Brake Controller on a 2005 Dodge Ram 2500
  • There are three possibilities that determine the items you will need for installation of the Tekonsha Voyager Proportional Brake Controller on your 2005 Dodge Ram 2500. If your vehicle has a factory installed 7-Way connector at the rear of the vehicle you will need the Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller with Wiring, item # 39510, # 3020-P. In this case these are the only parts needed. The connection point for the brake controller is found under the dash near the emergency brake pedal. If...

  • 2001 Dodge Ram Pickup Trailer Hitch, Brake Controller, Wiring and Towing Parts
  • The Prodigy P-2 brake controller and hitch you have selected will work great for your 2001 Dodge Ram as long as you do not have the deep drop rear bumper. In that case you would need hitch # 41504. The method of installing the controller will depend on how your truck is currently equipped. If you already have the 4-pole trailer connector, you can order the P2 part # 90885 and use the corresponding wiring adapter # 3020-P. You will also need an adapter, part # 37185 to convert the 4-pole...

  • Completing Tow Package Wiring on 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 with Factory 4-Pole Trailer Connector
  • You are correct, at least two of those remaining wires will need to be dealt with in order for your trailer brakes to function. On the Ram trucks equipped with the OEM 4-pole trailer connector, the blue brake output wire from the outlet under the dash simply ends in the engine compartment, and does not continue to the rear of the vehicle. You might be able to access the blue wire in the engine compartment, behind the drivers side wheel well. Look for a wire connector as shown in the...

  • Installation of Brake Controller On 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 w/ Factory 4-Way
  • Since your 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 did not come with a factory 7-way connector, you will not use the brake controller port underneath the dash, and will not use the Tekonsha Wire Replacement, part # 3020-P. Instead, you will need to hard-wire the brake controller using the Brake Controller 7 and 4 Way Installation Kit, part # ETBC7. The Black, White, Red, and Blue wires coming out of the brake controller will be wired. To begin plug your existing 4-way into part # ETBC7 and connect the...

Normally this connector is blue and it is located in this area on all Dodge Dakota vehicles but is sometimes harder to see than others.

  • Will the Pod Trailer Brake Controller Fit a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The Pod brake controller, # 39523, does come up for a 2005 Dodge Ram. Depending on how the truck is equipped, you will also need 1 of 2 harnesses. If the truck came with a factory 4 or 7-Way trailer connector, you will also need wiring harness # 3020-P. If the truck did not come with a trailer connector, you will need # 20127. I have included links to a couple of videos that should help.

  • How to Install a Brake Controller on a 2001 Jeep Cherokee Without Factory 7-Way Trailer Wiring
  • The best option on Jeep vehicles without a factory 7-way is to use the # ETBC7 brake controller installation kit that you purchased, see instructions link. The 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee without tow package may have the connector under the dash from the factory, but, if present, it most likely is not fully functional. In addition there was no 7-Way at the rear of the vehicle so the blue wire from the harness is terminated somewhere in the factory wiring harness. We do not recommend digging...

  • What Is Needed To Replace Factory Brake Controller On 2010 Dodge 3500 With Tekonsha Brake Controller

The Tekonsha Brake Control Adapter, # 3020-P, you have referenced will only fit up to 2009 Dodge 3500 vehicles. It will not work on your 2010 vehicle.
