Custom Fit Brake Controller
SUBJECT/Summary: Installing a brake control on a 2005-2008 Volkswagen Touareg or Porsche Cayenne
PROBLEM: Difficulty installing a brake controller on a 2005-2008 Volkswagen Touareg or 2005-2008 Porsche Cayenne
SOLUTION: When installing a brake control on a 2005-2008 Volkswagen Touareg or Porsche Cayenne, using the factory brake control connector under the dash, you will need to obtain the connector housing and wire/terminal assembly in order to assemble the brake control harness. The 2 wire/terminal assemblies will have to be cut in half to produce 4 wire assemblies. The cavities on the connector housing are numbered and the harness can be assembled as shown below.
To locate the connector under the dash, you first have to remove the lower appearance panel. This will require removing 2 Torx head screws. The brake control connector will be to the left of the opening and wrapped in Gray foam.
NOTE: If installing a Prodigy or P3, you may experience an erratic display on the brake control. To avoid or correct this issue, do not connect the Red wire from the brake control to the connector above.
When installing a Prodigy or P3, you will need to obtain locally, a 12 volt normally open relay.
