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.

We're also going to be using the Tekonsha brake controller pigtail adapter, part number 22292. The P3 is a very nice brake controller.

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.

Ford F-150 Brake Controller Questions and Answers


  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2017 Ford F-150 SuperCrew
  • For your 2017 Ford F-150 SuperCrew I recommend a Thule square bar roof rack using the following parts: 65 inch load bars # THLB65 Traverse foot pack # TH480 Fit kit # THKIT1787 The Thule square bars made today have the same dimensions as old bars so your accessories will work with the newer bars. Since the square bars can create a lot of drag and noise I also recommend Thule fairing # TH873XT.

  • Sounds like you have the round connector that a 7-way like part # 20119 would attach to. If the connector matches the product pictures then this 7-way would work to complete your trailer wiring. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup. This is a proportional brake controller that senses the amount of braking the tow vehicle is applying and...

  • Best Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2012 Ford F-150
  • The brake controller we recommend the most is the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is the best selling controller on the market because of how easy it is to setup and use, and how well it works. The Curt Triflex # C51130 is also an excellent choice for a brake controller, but I would go with the P2 honestly as it is the best controller around. To install the P2 all you would need is the correct wiring adapter, part # 22292. Or if you went the Curt route you would need the...

  • Troubleshooting the Installation of a Tekonsha Primus on a 2012 Ford F-150 After a Rear Collision
  • With the trailer connected the display on the brake controller should be read .c. This indicates that the trailer is connected. If the reading is 0.0 then that indicates that there is no braking conducted by the brake controller. Without a trailer connected the display should be n.c. then changes to . . after 15 seconds. I suggest adjusting the boost level, as well as make sure that the brake controller is mounted in the correct positioning. For the Tekonsha Primus # TK90160 the correct...

  • Are Brake Controllers and Wiring Harnesses Universal for a 2012 Ford F-150
  • In some cases a brake controller wiring harness will fit the brake controller from a different manufacturer but for the most part each manufacturer has a specific connector type at the back of the unit and you won't be able to use the harness from a different manufacturer. For example, if you have a P2 controller # 90885 and want to hook it up to your 2012 Ford F-150, the correct harness is # 22292. But you could also use harness # TM76292. But these harnesses will not fit any other...

  • Troubleshooting Prodigy P2 # 90885 Installation on 2012 Ford F-150 With N.C. Appearing in LCD
  • One way to troubleshoot is if you can hook your truck up to another trailer. By doing this you will be able to easily determine if you have an issue on your truck or trailer. If your brake controller works properly on the other trailer then you know your problem is on your trailer. If your brake controller still reads n.c. then it has to do with the setup in your truck. If another trailer is not available, or your brake controller would not set up when hooked to another trailer then...

  • Can a P2 Trailer Brake Controller from a 1998 Ford F-150 Be Used in a Rental 2012 Ford F-150
  • The 1998 Ford F-150 and 2012 F-150 do not use the same wiring harness (a 2012 would use # 22292). Because you would have to put holes in the dash of the truck to mount the controller, it is probably not something the rental place will let you do. But if they allow you to or can find a factory screw to mount the controller mounting bracket to then it could work. Another option is to use the Prodigy RF, # 90250, which mounts on the trailer so you will not have to modify the rental truck...

  • Recommended Brake Controller for Small Enclosed Trailer Towed By 2012 Ford F-150
  • I'd be happy to help you with that.... There are two kinds of controllers, time delayed and proportional. A time delayed controller (like the PowerTrac you referred to) allows you to adjust the amount of time between when you hit the brake pedal and the trailer brakes are applied. A proportional controller, however will sense how quickly the tow vehicle is stopping, and will apply the trailer brakes in proportion so that the tow vehicle and trailer are braking at the same rate. This...

  • Wiring Colors and Functions for the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller, 2011 Ford F-150
  • The 2011 Ford F-150 should have come with either a 4-Way flat or 7-Way blade style trailer connector. In both cases, there is a factory port located behind the center console for a brake controller wiring harness # 22292. I have included a link to the installation details for the harness that shows the functions of the pins and explains installation. The wiring on the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 brake controller, # 90885, is as follows: White is ground Blue is brake output to the trailer...

  • Trailer Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2011 Ford F-150
  • Since you are new to brake controllers, I recommend going with the P2, # 90885, because it is easier to set up and sue than the P3. The P3, # 90195, is a very good brake controller but it could be confusing to use if you are not familiar with brake controllers. The P2 is easily our most popular controller. It is easy to set up, easy to use, and it has a lot of useful features. It can be mounted a full 360 degrees in the direction of travel, it can be used with electric over hydraulic...

  • Troubleshooting No Green Light or Trailer Brakes on Tekonsha Voyager Brake Control, 2011 Ford F-150
  • It sounds like the wiring harness, # 22292, may not be pinned out the same as the 2011 Ford F-150. What you can do is use a circuit tester, like # 3808 if needed, and check the functions on the truck side plug to see if they match how the wiring harness is pinned out. If it is not correct, you can adjust it as needed. The other possibility is a loose or bad ground connection at the brake controller or at the trailer connectors. While checking the trailer connectors, also check for any...

  • Can Prodigy P2 Brake Controller # 90885 Install In Dash, Like Factory Controller Of 2011 Ford F-150
  • You can install the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller # 90885 with Wiring harness # 22292, on your 2011 Ford F-150, but it cannot be installed in the dash pocket where the factory brake controller would install. Ford does not allow the manufacturer of their OEM Ford factory brake controller to produce an aftermarket version. Any aftermarket brake controller, like the P2 will need to be mounted under the dash. If your 2011 F-150 has a factory 7-way at the rear, all you will need is...

  • Is Red Light on Hayes Trailer Brake Controller Supposed to Light Up with Brake Pedal and No Trailer
  • I spoke with my contact at Hayes and on the Energize controller, # HA81745, the red light will come on when you step on the brakes with the trailer connected or not. Also, you should see some brightness variation in the light. The best way to test it is to use the manual override lever and see if the light gets bright when on full and dimmer as you release the lever. If it does not, use a circuit tester like # 3808 if needed to test the voltage output at the 7-Way connector while someone...

  • Your 2011 Ford F-150 has a quick-connect port under the dash to allow for convenient plug-in installation of a trailer brake controller. The harness part you referenced, part # C51436, provides this connection instead of forcing you to hard-wire the unit. Your harness may be pinned out incorrectly for your 2011 F-150. Please refer to the linked article which explains the correct pin assignments for the harness you have. It may just be necessary for you to relocate the ground and brake...

  • Can a Factory Trailer Brake Controller be Installed on a 2011 Ford F-150 without OEM Controller
  • You would need to talk with a Ford dealer because there is going to likely be a lot of steps and other equipment needed in the cab and under the hood to install the factory brake controller. Also, the factory controllers are notorious for not working nearly as well as aftermarket controllers and they rarely will work at all with electric over hydraulic braking systems. I am also not sure what having the OEM controller installed, parts and labor, would cost you but I am certain it would...

  • Does Brake Controller have to be Hardwired on a 2011 Ford F-150 with Factory 4-Way Trailer Connector
  • On many Ford trucks, the wiring that leads from the front of the truck to the rear of the truck often times has the additional wires needed to attach to the back of a 7-Way trailer connector. What you will need to do is follow the 4-Way wiring back to where it plugs into another connector. The harness that is more towards the front of the truck has more wires in it. If you cut away or pull back the covering leading to the forward plug, you should find a blue wire for output to the trailer...

  • Is Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller Designed to Light Up Brake Lights with Manual Override
