Ford F-150 Brake Controller



Installation of a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2010 Ford F-150


Today on this 2010 Ford F-150 we are going to install a brake controller part number 90885 the Prodigy 2 brake controller. This F-150 has a factory tow package so our connector we are going to plug into is going to be behind the computer port here off towards the center. Maybe but a few inches away at the most. It is stuck into a cap right now so there is a little button that you want to push up and disconnect it. Plug the adapter cord into it and we are going to leave that alone for now. Next we will mount our brake controller to the bottom of the dash and we are going to locate it about right here and we are going to use this bracket that comes with the kit and basically we are going to pull it over to this screw right here and we will just use the screws that came with the kit and drill right into the plastic and it will be just fine. 00:50

We will get back to our adapter cord and our brake controller and we will plug the two together and then we can attach this to our bracket. Get a zip tie and zip tie the wires behind it safe and out of the way. Our physical install is complete. Now if we take a look at the brake controller you can see we have power to the brake controller and after a certain amount of time that will go off on its own. Essentially it will go to sleep but the brake pedal will act as an off/ on switch at this point. We will use the manual override and you can see right here it says NC which means no connection, there is no trailer connected up. There you have it for part number 90885 on our 2010 Ford F-150.

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 old version doesnt have the port on the end of the wires. Not to start off well go ahead and look for the two 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 stripes and an orange wire.

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2004 Ford F-150

Today we are working on a 2004 Ford F-150. We are going to be installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 brake controller, part number 90885-3035P. Our first step in installing our brake controller will be locating the plug to plug our connection into on the manufacturer side. Here, up under the dash above the brake pedal, there is a gray plug that will match up perfectly with our wiring harness. Now that we have our wire harness connected to the manufacturer harness, we are going to go ahead and mount our brake controller. 0:36



Diagnosing a Brake Controller Problem

Alright, today on this 2009 Ford F-150 we are going to diagnose a brake controller problem. Now we can use these steps on any brake controller that is on the market to verify if it is working or not. Now our brake controller is already telling us that it has an error message. It is flashing an Er on top. Usually it means an internal problem. We tested our trailer so we know it is good. So, it is not that. So first off we will make sure we have a constant 12 volt power supply. We will check the black wire first. OK, we are good there. Now we will try our red wire for our brake signal. OK, that is good there. Now we will try our blue wire and that will be our output. So we should have output on this wire whenever we hit the foot brake or the manual override. OK, we get nothing on the foot brake and nothing on the manual override. So definitely the error is internal and this brake controller does have to be replaced.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2001 Ford F-150

Today on this 2001 Ford F-150 we are going to install part number 90195-3035P. This kit will include the P3 brake controller and the adapter cord that will plug into the truck. Alright, we will start off with our adapter cord first. This is the end that will plug into the port. It is right next to the diagnostic port. And we just snap it into place. Alright, we have it plugged in. Let us go ahead and test the wires and make sure everything is working. Our black wire is going to be our 12 volt power supply. That is good. And red is going to be our stop light switch. OK, and white is going to be ground. And blue we have output to our trailer brakes so we do not have to test that. So it looks like our plug is good. 0:45
