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.

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2014 Ford F-150

Today on our 2014 Ford F150, we'll be installing the Takonsha Voyager Brake Control for 1 to 4 axles, part number 39510. We'll also be using the etrailer ETBC7 installation kit for brake controllers. With our power hooked up to our battery and our trailer hooked up to our brake controller, you can see we have a green light there. That means we have power going to our brake controller. This is our pendulum adjustment so when you level out your brake controller, you'll adjust that, and your power adjustment is on the side here. When you use your manual override, it will go from green to red so you know it's working. As you see, our truck is equipped for a 4-flat here on the back of the vehicle, and it is in a bracket. We're just going to go ahead slide that out of the bracket and tuck it behind our hitch, that way we can start to install our 7-way plug.

Today, on our 2013 FordF150, we'll be installing the Voyager brake controller, Part Number 39510, in conjunction with the Tekonsha plug-and-play adapter, Part Number 3050P. Now, to begin the install of our brake controller, we'll first need to locate the manufacturer's brake controller port. If you look underneath the dash here, above the gas pedal, you can find the gray plug. It's taped to the manufacturer's harness right next to the OBDII port.Now we'll remove the tape by just using a utility knife to cut it free. All right, now that we've located our manufacturer's tow port, we'll need to remove the protective cap. We'll press on the locking tab and slide the cap off.

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2005 Ford F-150

Today on our 2005 Ford F150, we'll be installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller. Part number 90195 with wiring harness, part number 3035-P. First we'll point out the connection to the factory wiring harness. Now that we've located our plug, there's normally a grey plastic cap that covers it - in this instance there's not. We'll take our new wiring harness from our new brake controller, plug it into the factory connector. With the wiring in place, we'll mount out bracket, in this case we're mounting it about halfway up the kick panel under the steering wheel. To mount it we use the two self-tapping screws that came included with out kit. Now that our bracket's in place we'll take the mounting clip for our brake controller and we'll screw that in using the included machine screws that came with the kit. Now that the brackets mounted, take our wiring harness, plug it the back of the brake controller and set our brake controller up in place.
