Chevrolet Silverado Classic Brake Controller

Installation of a Brake Controller for a Trailer on a 2007 Chevy Silverado

Today we are going to install a Prodigy brake controller, part number 90185 from Tekonsha, along with the accompanying wiring harness, part number 3015-P, and we are going to install these two components on a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado pickup. The first thing we are going to do is install the bracket for our brake controller. There is a nice piece of steel underneath the dashboard here, so we are going to attach it directly to that. And you can put it anywhere you want, but just about right here is a good, even spot. And we are actually going to clamp it in place, and then we will just drill out our attaching screws. Now we are using self-tapping screws. These did not come with the brake controller we outsourced those. So let us go ahead and run those self-tapping screws in there. Just one more check to make sure it did not move on you or anything, and set the other screw in.

All right, the bracket is good to go. Now we will move underneath the dash here, and behind this box here is the port that we need to install our adapter cable to. We are going to take this nut off, pop this cover off, and on top here you see a row of sockets. We will use the second one from the left - this one right here. We will install our adapter cable into this port. Push it in until it clicks, and then we will put our cover back on. And the cable will run over the outside. Then we will take the other end of our cable, and we will plug our cable into the Prodigy. Now that is in place, and we will go ahead and install it into our bracket. It looks like we already have got power to it, so we will not have to worry about that. We will just take our cable and just zip-tie it so it will be safe and out of the way. Okay, in a few simple steps, your brake controller is installed. And there you have it for part number 90185, from Tekonsha, and the adapter cable part number 3015-P.
