Today on our 2011 Chevy Silverado, well be installing the Tekonsha brake controller 90195. So, our first step will be to locate the manufacturers wiring that will be connecting our brake controller wiring. Here above the brake pedal is the manufacturers wiring outside of any wiring loom. Youll notice therell be five wires as in orange, which we will not be using, the dark blue which will be our brake signal that will go to our seven poll, a light blue wire which will be the brake pedal signal, a red wire with a black tracer which will our power wire and then a white wire which will be our ground. Ill go ahead and cut some of the excess length off, as we will not need at all. Now well go ahead and strip back each one and a butt connector.
Now with that done we can go ahead and start connecting them to our pigtail that will route to our brake controller. Again, we will have the dark from the manufacturer to the dark blue on our brake controller pigtail. Then well connect the two grounds, which will both be white also. Next, connect our manufacturers blue wire with the red wire to our brake controller pigtail. Then well take the red wire, the black tracer from the manufacturers side and connect it with the black wire, which will be our power wire to our brake controller.
Now to clean up my install link Im going to go ahead and take some black electric tape and wrap up our new wiring harness. Now lets go ahead and set that aside and mount the brake controller. Well be using the self-tapping screws provided with our install kit. With that, done we can go ahead and mount the brake controller in out brake with the screws provided with our install kit. With that, done we will now go ahead and take our brake controller lead and plug it into the back of the brake controller.
Next, we will need to move under the hood of the vehicle. There are several poly wires that will need to be connected. The first is located on the main wiring harness that leads down underneath the break master cylinder and brake booster. Its a red wire that is taped to the outside of the wiring harness. Next, well go ahead and remove the cover in our fuse box.
Between our fuse box and the fender-well theres another power wire that will need to be cut away from the manufacturers harness. Holding these two up you can see the ring terminal sizes are slightly different. They will be attaching to each of these posts like this. Now lets go ahead and attach our terminals and tighten them down. With that, done I will go ahead and take a couple of zip ties to secure my wiring. Now we can go ahead and reinstall the fuse box cover. With that, that will complete the installation of our Tekonsha brake controller part number 90195 on our 2011 Chevy Silverado.
Today on our 2010 Chevrolet Silverado well be installing the Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller, part number 39510 in conjunction with the Tekonsha Pigtail Wiring Harness, part number 7894. The first step of our install will be locating the manufacturers wiring up underneath the dash. This will be taped to the outside of a wire loom and a white sticker color indicator wrapped around it. Our first step will be cutting these wires free and pulling the sticker so we know which color has which power feed. Now for this application well only be using four of the five wires and the orange wire will not be used so Im going to go ahead and wrap it up then wrap up some of the wires with some black electrical tape. Then well go ahead and strip back each one of the wires adding a butt connector.
Today on this 2008 Chevrolet Silverado were going to install part number 39510. This is the Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller. Couple of things to know about this brake controller; first off, were working with an older version of it. The older version doesnt have the port on the end of the wires. Now to start off well go ahead and look for the tow package wires underneath the dash of our truck. Well look up underneath there and we should see a blue wire, a red wire, a white wire, a light blue wire with white stripes and an orange wire.
Okay, today on this 2013 Chevrolet Silverado, were going to install part number 90195 from Tekonsha. This is the P3 Brake Controller. The first thing were going to do is get underneath the dash and find the factory tow harness for our brake controller. Well go ahead and look up underneath the dash and over towards the left hand side looking up. Therell be some wires taped up. On this vehicle, its actually pretty easy to see.
Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Silverado we will be installing the Tekonsha P3 trailer brake controller, part number 90195. Now to begin our installation we will need to locate the wiring in the vehicle. It is usually found tied underneath the dash somewhere around the steering column. We will simply pull it down where we can identify the wires. Using the owners manual we now know that the red wire with the black tracer is our power wire. The blue wire is our brake signal to the trailer.
