Today on this 2005 Chevrolet HD 2500 we are going to install part number 90185 the Prodigy brake controller and then the adapter cord for it part number 3015-P. The first thing we need to do is get underneath the dash and pull up the access cover to the panel. That is to the left of the brake pedal itself. Take off this panel right here, undo this nut. There is a series of sockets up here and we want the one that is second from the left and we will plug our adapter cord into that. That just snaps into position. Put our cord out of the way and then we will put our cover back into place. 00:47
We will leave that alone for now and we will take our mounting bracket and we are going to attach it to this metal part right here. In this case we are going to actually use the plastic pocket for it and we are just going to use a couple of these holes on the back side and attach it to the metal framing right here. Then we are going to use a couple of self tapping screws that we outsourced from the local hardware store instead of the hardware that came with the kit. 01:19
We have got that attached. Now we will run our cable through the back of it and then we will plug our brake controller into it and it will snap into the back of the Prodigy and just pop it into place. The next thing we need to do is zip tie our wires up out of the way. The next thing we are going to do is try it out on our trailer. You can see that we have it plugged in and our brake controller already found the trailer. It is showing a C for connection. 02:05
We will run through the functions real fast. The bottom lever is the manual override. This is our gain control that determines how much power is going out. All the way back towards you is 0 and all the way towards the front of the vehicle is full power. Then we will do our boost button here. Boost one, b1, and then we have boost two, b2, and boost three,b3. Basically the boost settings, what they do, is set a certain amount of power to the trailer so you can feel them working first, usually about one second after we start working then it reverts back to proportional mode. There you have it for part number 90185-3015P from Tekonsha.
Today on our 2010 Chevrolet Silverado well be installing the Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller, part number 39510 in conjunction with the Tekonsha Pigtail Wiring Harness, part number 7894. The first step of our install will be locating the manufacturers wiring up underneath the dash. This will be taped to the outside of a wire loom and a white sticker color indicator wrapped around it. Our first step will be cutting these wires free and pulling the sticker so we know which color has which power feed. Now for this application well only be using four of the five wires and the orange wire will not be used so Im going to go ahead and wrap it up then wrap up some of the wires with some black electrical tape. Then well go ahead and strip back each one of the wires adding a butt connector.
Today on this 2008 Chevrolet Silverado were going to install part number 39510. This is the Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller. Couple of things to know about this brake controller; first off, were working with an older version of it. The older version doesnt have the port on the end of the wires. Now to start off well go ahead and look for the tow package wires underneath the dash of our truck. Well look up underneath there and we should see a blue wire, a red wire, a white wire, a light blue wire with white stripes and an orange wire.
Okay, today on this 2013 Chevrolet Silverado, were going to install part number 90195 from Tekonsha. This is the P3 Brake Controller. The first thing were going to do is get underneath the dash and find the factory tow harness for our brake controller. Well go ahead and look up underneath the dash and over towards the left hand side looking up. Therell be some wires taped up. On this vehicle, its actually pretty easy to see.
Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Silverado we will be installing the Tekonsha P3 trailer brake controller, part number 90195. Now to begin our installation we will need to locate the wiring in the vehicle. It is usually found tied underneath the dash somewhere around the steering column. We will simply pull it down where we can identify the wires. Using the owners manual we now know that the red wire with the black tracer is our power wire. The blue wire is our brake signal to the trailer.
Today on our 2011 Chevy Silverado, well be installing the Tekonsha brake controller 90195. So, our first step will be to locate the manufacturers wiring that will be connecting our brake controller wiring. Here above the brake pedal is the manufacturers wiring outside of any wiring loom. Youll notice therell be five wires as in orange, which we will not be using, the dark blue which will be our brake signal that will go to our seven poll, a light blue wire which will be the brake pedal signal, a red wire with a black tracer which will our power wire and then a white wire which will be our ground. Ill go ahead and cut some of the excess length off, as we will not need at all. Now well go ahead and strip back each one and a butt connector.
