Today on our 2008 Hyundai Entourage well be installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part number 908885with the etrailer Brake Controller 7 & 4 Way install kit part number ETBC7. First well take the new seven-pole and connect the mounting bracket. There are 4 screws and nuts to secure the bracket tothe seven-pole connector. Quick Tech Tip. At this time Id like to go ahead and take some black electrical tape and wrap up ofthe wires coming out of our new seven-pole connector. Now well go ahead and secure the seven-pole bracket to the hitch.Now with our seven-pole mounted to the hitch, Im going to go ahead and take my wires and mount them over to the hitch.
Now well take thefour-pole thats already on the vehicle and connect it to our new seven-pole connector. Quick Tech Tip. Just to secure the twofour-pole connections together, Id like to take a zip tie and run it between the two to secure them. Next well go ahead and take the gray duplex wire from our install kit, strip back a couple of inches of the shielding and thenstrip back the wires so that we can connect them to the black and blue wires that come from our seven-pole connector. Theblack wire will connect to the black wire of the seven-pole kit and this will be the hot lead that comes directly from thebattery.
The white wire will connect to the blue wire of the seven-pole kit. This will be the brake signal from our brake switch.Now with those connections made with the buck connector, well go ahead and take some more black electrical tape andwrap up our wires. Next well go ahead and take the white wire with the pre-attached ring terminal which is our ground wire and secure it heredirectly to the frame. Ill be using a self-tapping screw. Now with that done, Ill go ahead and take some black zip ties andsecure my wiring to the hitch.
Now we need to go ahead and run the great duplex cable into the engine compartment. Whenrouting your wires, you need to be especially mindful of the excessive heat such as exhaust and moving components such asthe steering or suspension. In this case, were going to go ahead and route it into the frame here. Well travel the frame as faras possible and then secure as necessary. Now that weve gotten our wire up to the engine compartment well go ahead and pull it out and secure it.
Now Ill go aheadand take a utility knife and were going to strip back the cover off of the duplex cable. This will allow us to take the white wireinto the cabin of the vehicle and our black wire is going to run over to our breaker and then from the breaker to the battery. Next well go ahead and route our wire to where were going to be mounting our breakers for the power wire. The powerwire that comes from the seven-pole connector will be connected to a 20 amp fuse here on the fender. Lets go ahead andmount the breakers. Well mount one here on the fender and one here on the firewall. And this is a 40 amp breaker. Nowwith both breakers mounted, well go ahead and strip back the power wire from the seven-pole connector and add a ring terminal.This will go to the silver side of our breaker. Next well locate a suitable spot in the firewall to route our wire from the engine compartment into the cabin of the vehicle.Here just to the left and below of the brake pedal push rod is an excellent location. Well go ahead and use the step it processusing a pilot bit and smaller bits till we get to the larger size that we need to install a grommet into this hole. Alright, withour hole drilled out well go ahead and install the grommet. Now we can take the white wire from the engine compartmentthat we just ran from the seven-pole connector, feed it into the hole and pull it into the cabin of the vehicle. Next well take the black wire that we cut off that ran from the seven-pole to the breaker and feed it into the cabin of thevehicle from the engine compartment also. Now weve got a couple of our wires run into the cabin, lets go ahead and mount thebrake controller pocket. With our brake control pocket mounted, Im going to go ahead and take the brake controllerharnessed lead and use some black electric tape to wrap it up. This helps keeps our wires together and is a little more aesthetically pleasing. Now we can go ahead and start making connections with the wires that weve run into the cabin. First well go ahead andstrip back all 4 wires from our brake control lead, then well add a buck connector to the black wire. This will be the powerwire for our brake controller. We can connect that to the black wire that we just ran into the cabin of the vehicle. Next well addthe buck connector to the blue wire from our brake control harness which will connect to the white wire coming from ourseven-pole connector that we also have routed into the cabin. Third is our red wire which will connect to the break switch signal. The break control switch signal from the vehicle is a solidwhite wire. Using the quick connector, well attach the red wire from our brake controller to the solid white wire. And fourthis the white wire which will be a ground for our break controller. Next well go ahead and take the remaining white wire that we just cut off and run it from the engine compartment into the cabin ofthe vehicle and attach it to the white wire for the brake controller. This will be the ground wire that will run directly to thebattery at the negative battery terminal. Lets go ahead and mount our brake controller. Well route the brake control harness through the pocket, make the connection,and then drop it and snap it in place. Now Ill go ahead and take some zip ties and secure the wiring up underneath the dash.Now with all our connections made and our wires secured in the cabin of the vehicle, well move back to the enginecompartment. Here well take the power wire that we ran into the brake controller, check our length, cut off any excess at aring terminal and attach it to our breaker. Next well go ahead and take our white wire, route it over to the negative battery terminal, cut off any excess length, strip itback and add a ring terminal to attach it to the battery. Now weve got two power wires that well need to run from the coppersides of our breakers to the positive side of the battery. Well run one at a time, using the excess length to make each wire.Well do the breaker for the brake controller, next do our 40 amp. Again well strip it back at our ring terminal and attach itto the copper side and then route it over to the battery. Now that weve got both of our power wires run lets go ahead and tighten down the terminals on our breakers. Now we can goback and add the power wires to the positive battery terminal. With both wires secured, well go ahead and replace the battery terminal cover. Aand with that done, this will complete theinstall of the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part number 90885 along with the etrailer Break Controller InstallKit part number ETBC7 for the 2008 Hyundai Entourage. .
