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.
