If we're going through traffic in the every day slowing down a little bit, the speed not slowing down, a gentle press on our brakes here are only going to activate that controller or will activate that controller at a slower, more smooth, and more comfortable rate.

Brake Controller Installation - 2000 Dodge Durango

And then you can plug in the brake controller cord. Plug the cord into it. Then we will take the rest of this and route it up over to the other side. We will route it up over the data port cable and the hood release. And what we are going to do is mount our brake controller to this flat surface right here.
