Brake Controller Installation - 2000 Dodge Durango

Today on this 2000 Dodge Durango, we are going to install part number HM47294-47755 from Hopkins. First off, we will go ahead and show you where the port is for the adapter cord that goes between the vehicle and the brake controller. First off, we need a little bit easier access to the port. So what you can do is actually put your finger behind it and be very careful, but you can push it towards the back of the vehicle and pop it loose from its clip that holds it in place. 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. It comes with these little set screws right here. Let us go put our bracket up here and just run it straight to the plastic. 0:58



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2005 Dodge Durango

Today we are going to do our install on a 2005 Dodge Durango with the tow package from the factory, and we are going to install Part Number 90185, the Tekonsha Prodigy brake controller. And we are also going to install the accompanying brake control harness for the Dodge tow package, and that is Part Number 3020P. To begin our install, we will start with the bracket to hold our brake controller. And that is actually pretty easy. There is already an existing screw underneath the dash, and we are going to use that. We use a torx bit and we are going to go ahead and take that down. Then we run our bracket right back through it, and we are going to overlap so it will sandwich the plastic back up there like it was originally.





Dodge Durango Brake Controller Questions and Answers


  • Brake Controller Installation Harness Recommendation for a 2014 Ram 1500
  • What you will need to install your Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885 in your 2014 Dodge Ram 1500 is the install harness part # 3023-P. This will plug into the brake controller and the other end will plug into the port on your Ram. I attached an install video for you to check out. The plug you used on your Durango would not work on your Ram. For a new install bracket you would want the part # P7685.

  • Brake Controller Wiring Adapter for Installing Prodigy P2 # 90885 in 2014 Dodge Durango
  • We offer a quick-connect wiring adapter for your 2014 Dodge Durango with factory 7-way to allow simple installation of a Tekonsha Prodigy brake controller # 90885.

An install video and article are linked in case you need this option.

  • P2 vs. P3 Brake Controller for a 2014 Dodge Durango
  • Both the P2 part # 90885 and the P3 part # 90195 brake controllers are top of the line controllers that would work great for your 2014 Dodge Durango with tow package. All you would need for installation is the adapter part # 3045-P. Functionally they both would work exactly the same. The advantage to the P2 is the simpler install and setup. The P3 requires a little more user interaction but it also has more bells and whistles like the ability to save trailer setting presets if you have...

  • Wiring Needed To Install P3 Brake Controller On 2012 Dodge Durango
  • For you to connect your Prodigy P3 Brake Controller, part # 90195 to your 2012 Dodge Durango, you will need to use a Universal Installation Kit, part # ETBC7. This kit will attach to the 4-way connector at the rear of your Durango and give you a 4-way along with a 7-way connector. You will need to do some additional wiring to get the brake controller connected. When working with electrical connectors I recommend using dielectric grease like part # 11755. This keeps dirt and moisture...

  • Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller Recommendation to Replace a Time-Delayed Controller
  • The Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller part # 90195 should fix your problem honestly. It sounds like your previous controller just wasn't flexible enough to give you the exact braking you needed. The P3 should let you dial in your braking power much easier and would work a lot better than any time delayed controller out there. I would recommend you wait till after you install and setup the P3 before you start adjusting the brake assemblies of your trailer. Chances are they are just fine. When...

  • Mounting Location for a Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Brake Controller # 90195 in 2014 Dodge Durango
  • Thank you for your photo. Advanced trailer brake controllers like the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195 offer better flexibility in the choice of mounting location because they can be installed in any vertical orientation so long as the unit remains pointed in the direction of travel and is level in the horizontal plane. The linked drawing shows how the unit must be oriented in order for its internal accelerometer to function properly. The P3 can be rotated to any point in a 360-degree...

  • Hitch, Wiring and Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2013 Dodge Durango
  • Lets start with the hitch, for that our most popular hitch with other owners of Durangos is the Curt Hitch part # C13182. This is a Class III hitch with a 2 inch opening with plenty of capacity. I attached an install video for you to check out. Next we need wiring. You will need to start with a 4-way. For that I recommend the Curt Upgraded Trailer Wiring Harness part # C65133. Now you will need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install a brake controller. For that you...

If your Durango does not have a 4-pole trailer connector already you will also need...

  • The Curt Discovery Trailer Brake Controller, # C51120, and the Custom Wiring Adapter, # C51446, will work on your 2013 Dodge Durango without splicing as long as your Durango came with a factory 7-way trailer connector at the trailer hitch.

You should see a gray connector just to the left of the steering column. If your Durango...

  • Locating Brake Controller Port on 2007 Dodge Durango Equipped with Factory Tow Package
  • Since your 2007 Dodge Durango is equipped with a factory tow package it will have a connection port for a brake controller. The connector is usually routed over near the emergency brake pedal but it is possible that the wire harness and connector are zip-tied to other under-dash wiring or tucked behind a trim panel. It may be helpful to temporarily remove the left kick panel (to the left of your left ankle when behind the wheel) to give you better access to the vehicle wiring. If not...

  • Recommend Towing Components To Tow 4400 lb Travel Trailer With My 2003 R/T Durango
  • Weight distribution systems and vehicle enhancement options are not usually recommended to be used in conjunction since they can cancel each other out. I would recommend a weight distribution system to help reduce vehicle sag. For a weight distribution system, you want to select a weight distribution system that falls within the tongue weight of your trailer which is 10 to 15 percent of the gross trailer weight when it is loaded and ready to be towed. You will want to make sure...

  • Parts Needed to Install an Electric Trailer Brake Controller on a 2000 Dodge Durango
  • The unit that was placed behind the tail light was most likely some kind of converter used to convert the vehicle tail light signals into the type of signal used by trailers. Since it malfunctioned, it would be best to start over with a new one designed specifically for your 2000 Dodge Durango. You most likely also had a 7-Way trailer connector installed at the same time, so if that is the case, you would just need Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # 118334. This harness alone will...

  • How Brake Controllers Work and Parts Needed for Installation on a 2004 Dodge Durango without Tow Pkg

The Older style is the Time delayed style of brake controller, like the Draw-Tite Activator Trailer Brake Controller, item # 5100. This controller will get the signal from your brake pedal and then apply the trailer brakes at a, user set, pre-determined level no matter how fast the vehicle is stopping. There is also a delay setting so that the trailer brakes can be set to activate shortly after the vehicle brakes so they...

  • Properly Wiring the Tekonsha Prodigy # 90185 Brake Controller on a 2004 Dodge Durango With Tow Pkg
  • It sounds to me as if you may have a couple of issues with the brake controller wiring. If your vehicle has the factory 7-Way at the rear of the vehicle and your trailer has original wiring, you should not need to switch the Blue brake feed wire and the black 12 volt power wire on the trailer. I would make sure those wires are in the correct locations inside the trailer connector before proceeding to correct the wiring of the brake controller. Use the diagram of the 7-Way trailer connector...
