Installation of Curt Brake Controller Adapter

To install your Curt electric brake controller, you need to connect the wiring of the controller to your vehicle. Certain auto manufacturers offer pre-wired options, typically known as tow packages, wherein wiring is run for you from the dash to the trailer connector on the back of your vehicle. When this is done, a port is installed at your dash so that you can easily plug in a brake controller.

This adapter plugs into the port on your vehicle's built-in brake control wiring harness. For most applications, this harness is located behind the dash.

No hardwiring is required to install this adapter. After you plug it into the factory port, you simply plug the other end of the adapter directly into your electric trailer brake controller. Because there are no wires to connect, installation is not permanent. You can unplug and remove your brake controller at any time to transfer it to another vehicle or securely stow it away.

Kate M. my salesperson, had a most professional interaction with me being certain of my and my vehicle's needs. In addition, she walked me through the complete installation process. This I completed, wiring the 7-way and the Curt Discovery Controller making no errors along the way. On the first test, every terminal on the 7-way tested as it should. When we came home with the RV from the dealer, all the lights and the brakes worked flawlessly. Many thanks!!

2014 Ford F-150

Adapted Curt brake controller for my 2014 Ford F150 STX without any problems. Just find your Ford brake control connector behind the coin slot on the left side of the dash and plug it in.

Tommy J.


After a year of using the Curt brake controller it has been by far the best one of several I have used and installed. i highly recommend the controller.

2012 Ford F-150

Exactly what I paid for with fast shipping at a good price. Everything looks great and works perfectly.

2009 Ford F-150

The Curt wiring adapter for my 2009 Ford F-150 plugged into the controller and the truck connector under the dashboard exactly as it should have. It works great.

2018 Ford Expedition

This has worked well on my 2018 Ford Ex pedition.


Installing and using the Curt trailer brake controller was simple and worked perfectly. I Can say the same about the customer service at etrailer. And will certainly be using them both


the 22292 would have been a better but were not in stock.the c 51436 fit my f-
150 very good . on the other end i spliced the 4 wires,same color code ,prodgy 3 hooked up easily . worked great thanks to you


I purchased the C51436 adapter to install the C51130 trailer brake controller in my 2010 Ford pickup. Everything worked as stated. Good products from a good company with quick service.

Larry M.


I am very happy with all of my purchases from etrailer. The products are still working fine after a year and your company is very good to work with. Any future needs I have will be purchased at etrailer.

Ford F-150

Simple plug and play, installed in less than 30 minutes in my f150. A++++


Just as described. With truck specific wiring harness, installation was simple. Highly recommend!

perfectly satisfied

2013 Ford F-150

Etrailer provided outstanding information regarding the technical details of the product along with easy to understand installation instructions. The brake controller provided a cost effective solution for my basic requirements. The installation was a "snap", the only time consuming task was determining the optimal location/position install the brake controller. Item was installed in a 2013 Ford F150 and I use it on a dual axle trailer for hauling a compact Kubota tractor.

2012 Ford F-150

Excellent - no hesitation in making that evaluation

I bought a brake controller, interface cable for the F150, and the 7 pin plug that goes on the back bumper. All items are great quality. Parts arrived as expected with shipping as paid for. I am installing the equipment, but don't have any issues. There were no installation instructions, however these are available on line line detail. I do not expect any operational probems but am a few days from making that test.

2016 Ford F-150

This pigtail that Dan T. with e-trailer help me get order an shipped worked perfectly. It was a custom fit for 2016 F-150 w/ no tow pkg and a Curt 51120 brake controller. This will almost complete my conversion of my truck that had no tow pkg. In the end it will help my daughter tow her Shooting S barrel horse safely to the shows. Thank you Dan T.

2012 Saturn Relay

Made install easy. I ran my own 12 ga wire to 7 pin connector for trailer brakes. I couldnt find the fuse and or relay needed for my 2011 F150 to complete factory circuit. I NEEDED the trailer the next day with a 3,000 lb tractor on it. Worked well.

2009 Ford F-150

Researched, purchased and installed a hitch and brake controller for my 2009 F-150. It was so much easier using etrailer. I have recommended them to several friends for their towing needs.

2015 Ford Flex

This adapter from my Curt brake controller to my 2015 Ford Flex was a perfect match. Thank you very much!

2015 Ford F-150

Exactly what I needed. It worked great and arrived in 3 days right before an 1600 mile trip. It plugged right into my trailer brake harness and was easy to install. Took me less than a minute.


Plugged right in and working perfectly

Keith M.


Working perfectly

2014 Ford F-150

Great part. Works perfect with my 2014 f150 and curt brake controller.

2010 Ford F-150

The cable assembly made installation quick and easy, all I had to do was locate the Ford supplied connector in my F150. The cable assembly supplied by Curt plugs into the Ford provided connector. Plug the opposite end of the Curt supplied cable into the controller and the electrical installation is complete. Note: the Ford supplied connector has a protective cover on it, you have to remove this cover before this Curt connector will plug in.


The cable was easy to install. Made the brake controller installation seemless.

2013 Ford Flex

Made the installation in my 2013 Ford Flex Limited a breeze!


Product was delivered in a timely manner. Instalation was super easy. If all holds up, it will be a no brainer buy.


Product was delivered on time as stated. Had a few issues on my end that tech walked me thru. Easy connection, working great. Thanks etrailer for all you do.
