Today on this 2006 Chevrolet 3500 Pickup truck we are going to install part number 5520-3015P. This kit consists of the activator three brake controller and the adapter cord to go between the tow package on the pickup truck and the brake controller. The first thing we are going to do is get access to the port for the brake controller and that is behind this panel right here. Remove this nut. There are two snaps on the side of the panel. Undo those and then pull the panel off. This port right here, the second from the left, is the one we need to use. We will take our adapter cord and plug it in right here. Make sure it snaps in and then put the cover back into place. 00:45
Next we will move on to our bracket for the brake controller itself. We are going to mount it to this piece of sheet metal right here. We are going to be using self tapping screws to attach this to since the brake controller comes with screws that are really only good for going into plastic. We will route our cable over to our bracket for the brake controller and we will plug it into the brake controller. These two set screws will hold everything in place. Use a zip tie to hide the wires so they are safe and out of the way. We will check our brake controller now for function. First we will hit on the foot brake. If you see a dot that means you have got connection there. Try the manual override if you have power there too and that is without the trailer hooked up. Now we will hook up a trailer to it and we will check our ratings from there. 01:54
Try the manual override and with the trailer hooked up we have numbers now. Hit the foot brake and we have got numbers too. That means it is working properly. If this is our manual override this activates the brakes by themselves. This is our gain control right here on top and that controls the total output on a scale from one to ten. On the left hand side there is slide switch which is a sync switch. That controls how soon the brakes on the trailer are when you hit your foot brake. When you have it closest to you and you hit the foot brake it cycles through relatively fast. Go the opposite way, all the way to the front of the truck and you can see it is pretty slow going up to full power. With that, that will finish our install for part number 5520-3015P on our 2006 Chevrolet 3500.
All right, today on this 2008 Chevrolet Silverado were going to install part number 90195 from Tekonsha. This is the P3 brake controller.

Well go ahead and strip our wires back and then add our butt connectors.

Now with our wires ready we'll go ahead and start making our connections.Starting with the dark blue wire coming from the vehicle and the dark blue from the brake controller pigtail we'll go ahead and connect the two with the yellow bud connector. We'll repeat the same process with the white wire from the vehicle and the white wire from our brake controller pigtail.Next, we'll take the red wire with the black tracer from the vehicle and connect it with the black wire coming from the brake controller pigtail and finally we'll take the light blue wire with the white tracer from the vehicle and connect it with the red wire from the brake controller pigtail completing the brake to a circuit.Now with all of our connections made I'm going to go ahead and take some black electrical tape and wrap up our wires also it will help clean up our install.
