Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2004 Ford F-350 Super Duty

Today on our 2004 Ford F350, we'll be installing the Tekonsha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller, part number TK90160. Now, during our installation, we'll also be using the Tekonsha plug-in wiring adapter for electric brake controllers for Fords, Lincolns, and Mercurys, part number 3035-P. We'll begin here by removing this cover right here. To do this, there's four little tabs that we'll twist and they'll pop out, and then we'll be able to remove the whole cover. Go ahead and set the cover aside for now. Now this right here is the factory plug that we'll be tying in the adapter plug to, the 3035-P plug. Now we'll go ahead and route our plug up from the underside here, and we'll go ahead and line it up with our gray factory plug. Once we're lined up, we'll go ahead and firmly push it in place, making sure that the little locking tab on the side here secures on the locking edge.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2004 Ford F-250

Today on our 2004 Ford Super Duty well be installing the Tekonsha Primas IQ brake controller, part number TK90160. First to begin our install well go ahead and locate the manufacturers wiring harness. Taped to it will be four wires necessary to hook up our brake controller. This will be the red, blue, black and white wires. Some applications of the Super Duty model will have two sets of brake control wires. For this application we only have one set of wires to hook up to.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2001 Ford F-250

Today on our 2001 Ford F-250 Super Duty, we'll be installing the Hopkins Insight Flex Mount Trailer Brake Controller for 1 to 4 axles, part number HM47297. To begin with, let's go over the parts that we'll be installing with the Hopkins Insight Flex Mount Trailer Brake Controller. We have the smart box here, which will be what's wired into our vehicle. We also have the flex control, which allows you to mount controls that allow you to change your settings on your brake controller, anywhere you like, preferably somewhere within easy reach. The kit also comes with a flex display. You can see it also comes with a bracket that can be used to mount the flex controller by screwing it in instead of using the 2-sided tape supplied with the kit.



Trailer Wiring Harness Installation - 2006 Ford F-350

Today on our 2006 Ford F350, we'll be installing the Hopkins 7 and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket with Mounting Bracket for the Vehicle End, part number Hm40975. We'll also be using the Universal Mounting Bracket, part number 18140 to mount our 7 and 4-Pole Trailer Connector to the vehicle. Now we're going to go ahead and choose a location that we'll be mounting our new plug. We'll be tying in with the factory 7-way connection. We're going to go ahead and mark and we're going to have to drill two holes to mount our new bracket. Once we have our two holes marked, we'll go ahead and drill them on the bracket. You will need a supply, a bolt and a nut, to connect the bracket to the bumper structure.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2002 Ford F350

Today, on our 2002 Ford F350, we're going to be installing Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller, Part Number 90885. In conjunction with the brake controller, we'll also be using the Tekonsha Plug-in Wiring Adapter for electric brake controllers, Part Number 3035-P.To begin with, we will go ahead and lower dash panel below the steering wheel by twisting the four corners of the panel and pulling it off. With this removed, we'll go ahead and locate the plug that we will need to plug into underneath the dash.The connector is a gray connector and we will need to take the end of the plug-in wiring adapter and plug into this. You want to make sure it goes in all the way to where you hear it click and lock into place.Next, we'll go ahead and pick out a location to secure our mounting bracket. On this particular vehicle, there was already a brake controller installed before, but we'll go ahead and change out to the new bracket.We'll go ahead and make the connection to the back of the brake controller. Again, you'll notice that there is a clip on the one side and you need to make sure that it's locked into place firmly on the back of the brake controller.We'll go ahead and use the two screws and put the brake controller up into the bracket.



Trailer Brake Controller with Wiring Installation - 2000 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Today on this 2000 Ford F-250 Super Duty we are going to install part number 90885-3035P. The Tekonsha Prodigy P2 brake controller with the adapter cord that will plug into the factory Ford outlet. The first thing we need to do is get access to the port near the panel underneath the steering wheel that we have to temporarily remove. You can simply use a coin to undo the latches. Right here is the port that we need to plug into. That is kind of hard to get the wire harness in there and plug it in so you can use a screwdriver or a trim panel tool like we are using and just pop it up a little bit, get underneath of it and pop it loose so you can get a better angle at it. Take the cord and plug it in and take the cable and route it below and put the panel back into place. 00:55



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Today on this 2008 Ford F250 Super Duty we will be installing the Prodigy brake controller and adapter plug, part number 90185-3034-P. We are inside the cab of the truck and the first thing we want to do is locate the port we are going to be plugging our adapter into. On these newer F250s they have the option of having the factory installed brake controller in the dash area. Since this does not have one, the plug is actually mounted on the back side of this knockout here. :37



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2008 Ford F250 Super Duty

Today we are going to be installing brake controller part number 5500 from Draw-Tite on a 2008 Ford F250 Super Duty. Inside the cab here, the first thing you want to do is go ahead and locate the factory-installed brake control port that the Super Duty has. If your vehicle does not come with the in-dash brake controller, which is typically in this location here, the plug will actually be in a holder, mounted on the back side of this piece right here.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 1999 Ford F250

Today we're going to install the Prodigy brake controller from Tekonsha, Part Number 90185, on a 1999 Ford F-250, the light-duty version. This will also apply to the same year Ford F-150. We're going to start off with this one vehicle that only has a factory 4-pole package on it and does not have the 7-pole in the back. So we're going to have to upgrade the 4-pole to make it a 7-pole and then we can install the brake controller up front. The first thing we do is install one of two brackets on the hitch itself so we have a place to mount our electrical connector, and basically we're going to be using Part Number 18140 from Tow-Ready. And basically this is one that clamps in place right here. Basically it's just a hose clamp that goes around the hitch and back through itself. And then you just tighten it down with a clamp set. You might want to hold the bracket in position while you tighten it down, too. Next we're going to install a bracket by a hole in the connector right here. And this comes with the Part Number 37185, and that's a 4-pole to 7- and 4-pole adapter.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2003 Ford F250

Before we begin our install we need to take down this access panel here to get to the port thats located behind the panel towards the center. Well point that out to you. Inside this cavity here you can see all the wire harnesses and what not, behind this harness is a gray port. Thats the port for the tow package we need to use. Well run it from the inside here out behind this steel here and come back around to the outside. Since this is tight quarters you can take a screw driver and force this up a bit so its facing towards you and its easier to install. Next were going to mount our bracket, were going to use a standard one like so. This vehicle had a brake controller before, so we use the existing holes. The hardware that came with this is a little small so were going to replace it with some number nine screws to take up the holes in the dash already.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2003 Ford F250

Just to give you a reference point, this is the top, right here of the gas pedal, so basically its across up on this pillar here. While were here well plug in our brake controller adapter and that will be part # 3035-P. Now we can plug the other end of this into our brake controller after we install the mounting bracket. Next well mark our bracket for positioning, well just hold it up here on this bottom edge where its nice and flat. In this corner right here, well just make a small dot for reference and then well put our first screw there. Afterwards well put our brake controller inside and eyeball it to make sure we get it straight. When we have positioned the way we want it, we ll make our secondary screw install here. Okay at this point we can simply install our adapter cable in then well just mount right here. We have the brake controller installed now, the last thing we do is take the wires and zip tie them into a safe position and all we have to do is test.





Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty Brake Controller Questions and Answers


  • Will the Factory Brake Controller on a 2006 Ford F-250 Have to be Unplugged for the Prodigy P2
  • Yes, to install the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller, # 90885, in place of your factory brake controller you will need to disconnect the plugs and use the gray 4-pin plug that matches the wiring adapter, # 3065-P, for the P2 brake controller. Keep in mind, disconnecting the factory brake controller may set a fault code on the instrument cluster. The only way to have the code removed is to take the truck to a Ford dealer and have them turn off the factory controller. I have attached a Technical Bu

  • Troubleshooting Voyager Brake Controller # 39510 Not Working On 2004 Ford F-250
  • I would start by testing your brake controller. To do so, you will want to cut the Blue wire coming out of the brake controller approximately 2 Inches or so away from the controller. Then, make sure the other wires are connected properly. The Black wire should be connected to a 40 amp circuit breaker, part # 9510, and then to the positive battery terminal. The White wire to a good clean ground, I would recommend the negative battery terminal. The Red wire, from the information I have should be c

  • Troubleshooting Brake Controller Stops Working When Headlights are Turned On for a 2002 Ford F-350
  • The only thing I can think of that would cause the brake controller to stop working when you turn on the headlights on your 2002 Ford F-350 is that if it was hardwired when installed, the red wire could be connected to the wrong wire on the brake switch above the brake pedal and it is backfeeding into the brake controller. If it was hardwired when installed, you will need to check the wire that the red wire is connected to using a circuit tester like the Quickee # 3808. The wire should only c

  • Reese Pilot Brake Controller on 2000 Ford F250 Not Reading Trailer
  • You did a great job troubleshooting here. Trying a different trailer as well as a different controller did a pretty good job of ruling the trailer or the controller out as being the problem. The newer controller that you tried sent a small amount of voltage along the brake output circuit looking for the trailer connection, and did not find it. The most likely culprit is a corroded or damaged trailer connector on your truck. Take a look at the pins in the connector. If you can see any green co
