Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2011 Ford Expedition

Today on this 2011 Ford Expedition we are going to be installing the Prodigy P2 brake control kit, part number 90885-3035P. Starting off inside the cab of the Expedition, and the first thing we want to do is locate the brake control port that we are going to be plugging our wiring harness into.

So with the port located, we can go ahead and take our wiring harness. Go ahead and plug it in. With the harness plugged in, we will want to next determine where we want to mount our brake controller. We want to mount it in a position where it can be easily accessed by the hand of the driver but also does not interfere with normal driving conditions. On this particular vehicle, over here on the right side of the steering wheel, if I follow below right about even with where our port is, the underside of the dash here has a small lip. I believe it is just wide enough for us to actually us as a mounting point. And I am going to be using the more traditional bracket that comes with the Prodigy P2 controller. We can mount it in position just like so. You do want to make sure when you are mounting the brake control bracket that it is mounted in a straight line with the braking of the vehicle. 1:31
