How to Install a Brake Controller for a Trailer on a 2009 Ford F150


Today we are going to install a Prodigy Brake Controller, part number 90185 on our 2009 Ford F-150, and we are going to use the accompanying brake control adapter and show you how it gets installed. This is a little bit different from previous models. The plug for the brake controller is actually behind this tray right here. What happens is, this panel comes off, and then we get behind the tray - unscrew the tray - and the connection is right behind it. All right, what we are going to do first is go ahead and just take off this panel right here. And it is actually pretty easy. Just give a gentle pull on the bottom and just work your way up. And start on the right-hand side, so that way you can pull it out from underneath this piece here. When you do pull on this, this little panel here will come back toward you, too, and give you a little bit of extra room to pull it out.

There is a wire harness back here for the four-wheel drive, and you have got to disconnect that plug. There is a simple tab on top you just squeeze it down just like a tail light assembly. This compartment here gets unscrewed from here and here. We just undo these two screws and pull the whole thing out. OK, pull this out. You do not have much slack, but there is our connection right here, built into the back of the tray. Unclip it, and then we can install our brake control adapter. You can take the whole assembly and actually run it behind the plastic down out toward the bottom of the dash, where we are going to install our brake controller. And at this point we are going to put our trim panel back together.

We can mount our brake control down on the bottom now. There a few different ways to install the brake controller. You can mount it on the dash, like so. There is also a little edge on the bottom here. It is kind of on the low side, but it does keep everything a little bit out of the way, too. It is personal preference on this one. We are going to mount it on the bottom. We will mount our brake controller bracket up to this plastic and then we will just run our screws into it. We will go ahead and snap in our brake controller. All right, our next step is to go ahead and take our wires and hide them up underneath of it. All right, and the install of the brake controller is complete.That covers our install of a Prodigy brake controller, part number 90185 on our 2009 Ford F-150.

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2014 Ford F-150

Today on our 2014 Ford F150 we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Tekonsha PowerTrac. This is a time delayed electronic brake controller that will work for one or two axles. Part number is 39523. We're also going to be using the Tekonsha brake controller pigtail adapter, part number 22292. The PowerTrac offers a great solution for getting braking power out of our vehicle and back to our trailer to where our brake assemblies can use it. The PowerTrac is a time delayed brake controller so unlike on that requires inertia to operate the system in here as soon as we step on our brakes it's going to send braking power back to our trailer, which will slowly ramp up to the maximum that we have set here. The maximum is fully adjustable. If we rotate the dial away from us that's going to decrease our braking power.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2014 Ford F-150

Today on our 2014 Ford F-150 we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 trailer brake controller. This is a proportional brake controller that works great for one up to four axles. Part number on it is 90195. We're also going to be using the Tekonsha brake controller pigtail adapter, part number 22292. The P3 is a very nice brake controller. To start with, it's proportional so this is going to brake in relation to how we're braking in our truck, versus a time-delayed system.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2014 Ford F-150

Today on our 2104 Ford F150 we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Tekonsha Prodigy P2. This is a proportional brake controller that works great on up to 4 axles. Part number on it is 90885. We'll also be using the Tekonsha Plugin Brake Controller Adapter, part number 22292. A great thing about the P2 is going to be how it constantly monitors the connection between our truck and our trailer. If our 7 pole we're to become unplugged, or we we're to have some kind of wiring short, you can see it's going to flash, "nc, nc." That's going to indicate to us that we're not connected. Once we get that connection put back in place it's going to go back to "c" indicating that we've got a proper connection and our brakes are going to work on our trailer.

Here's our brake controller once we have it installed. The Primus IQ is a proportional brake controller.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2016 Ford F-150

Today on our 2016 Ford F-150 we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Tekonsha Voyager trailer brake controller. This proportional brake controller works for one up to four axles. The part number is 39510. We'll also be using the Tekonsha pigtail for brake controllers, part number 22292. The Voyager's going to be a proportional brake controller. What this means is that it's going to activate based on, or proportionally to how our vehicle is braking.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2016 Ford F-150

Today on our 2016 Ford F-150 we're going to show you how to install the Tekonsha Prodigy P3. This is a proportional trailer brake controller, works for one up to four axles, part number on it is 90195. To complete our install we're also going to use the Tekonsha plug in wiring adapter, part number on that 22292. The two buttons on the left are going to allow us to adjust up and down the maximum braking output that we want sent back to our trailer. Now this you will adjust based on road conditions, trailer weight, and things like that. The higher we've got our power or what they call gain set, the more braking force is going to be applied to the brakes on our trailer. Currently we have, you can see here it's just an icon of a small truck with a small trailer behind it.
