Video Transcript for Draw-Tite Brake Controller 20127 Review

Today we're going to review part #20127. This is the draw-type replacement brake controller plug-in wiring harness for the Tekonsha and draw-type brake controllers. Now this is a replacement plug-in harness designed to fit the Tekonsha P3, the Voyager, the Prodigy, the Primus brake controllers. Also works with many of the draw-type brake controllers also. Total length on this wire, just to give you an idea here, just stretch it out, you can see it's right at about 12 inches approximate total length on it. Just to show you what this is used for, I happen to have here a Tekonsha Prodigy P3 brake controller that we do sell separately on our website. Basically what you would do is take the end with the plug into it, you'll see it'll match the back of the brake controller, just push it in, that locks into place.

Then you have your wires to be wired to your vehicle and each wire is marked with a tag that tells you how to connect it or where it connects to. Basically your blue wire would go to your brake output to the trailer. Your white wire would go to the negative side of your battery. The black wire would go to the positive side of your battery. The red wire would go to the cold side of your stoplight switch.

When you need to take your brake controller out, you just push up on that, it pops right out. That should do it for the review on part #20127. This is the draw-type replacement brake control plug-in harness for the Tekonsha and draw-type brake controllers.

We do not have any instructions for this item either, but I do a help article that explains the details of how to install this item. This is a hard wire application for Draw-Tite or Tekonsha branded brake controllers, this is where the black plug end will install. The loose wires will then be connected to the corresponding functions on the vehicle: Blue: trailer brakes White: vehicle battery negative terminal Black: vehicle battery positive terminal Red: cold side of stoplight switch

Probably the easiest thing that I have ever done in the automotive world. The online guide was perfect! Easy to read, follow, and explained very well. When I contacted customer service about what I needed, not only did they explain things to me, but the representative sent (via email) pictures, prices, and part no. for the items I needed. It took the hunting and surfing out of it. I figured with customer svc. like this, why try to search for something a dollar cheaper. I will probably always go here from now on. 855246

I got the Trailer Brake controller (#39523) and the Wiring Pigtail (#20127) yesterday around 1:30 pm. I had the Controller (with the Wiring pigtail) installed & operating by 2:30 pm. I hooked my travel trailer up to my pickup and the Controller Lights were working correctly as per the instruction book. The pigtail was easy to connect to the pickup's factory installed trailer wire. I teach College level Mathematics and so I do not do this sort of installment professionally. In other words, anyone should be able to install this Controller if they can read and follow written directions. Of course I also watched a couple of videos on installing a trailer controller on various vehicles. 856222

  • Draw-Tite I-Command Brake Controller Wiring for 2007 GMC Sierra New Body
    When installing the Draw-Tite I-Command Trailer Brake Controller # 5535 to your 2007 GMC Sierra New Body with the factory tow package, you can attach the red wire of the Brake Control Plug-In Harness # 20127 to either the light blue wire or the orange wire, which are brake light wires (CHMSL stands for Center High Mounted Stop Light). I have added a link to a help article on installing a brake controller on your generation of Sierra which I strongly recommend reading.

  • Finalizing Final Under Hood Wiring Connections for Brake Controller on 2009 GMC Sierra
    It sounds as if the final power connection needs to be made under the hood. If you take a look at the Brake Controller Installation FAQ article I have linked you to, and scroll to the bottom of the page, you can see the procedure for finalizing the connections under the hood. The wire that provides power to the brake controller is located to the right of the power distribution box, between the box and the fender. Cut the electrical tape and free the red wire with the ring terminal on...

  • Do the Tow Ready and Tekonsha Brake Controller Harnesses use the Same Guage Wire
    The Tow-Ready part, part # 20127, and the Tekonsha part, part # 7894, use the same size wires. The blue and black wires are 12 gauge and the red and white are 16 gauge. They are the same part other than wire length.

  • Where to Connect the Stoplight Wire on Brake Controller Pigtail
    To install the Tekonsha PowerTrac Brake Controller # 39523 in your 2006 Ford Escape, the red wire on your brake controller harness # 20127 needs to be connected to the stoplight switch under the dash in your vehicle. There should be a wire for the stoplight switch on the back of the brake pedal. You will want to use a circuit tester, like # 40376, to find the wire that has signal only when the brake pedal is depressed. Testing the wires is the best way to be sure which wire is the one...

  • Electric Trailer Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2009 Volkswagen Touareg TDI
    I recommend the Tekonsha P2, # 90885. It is one of our highest rated and most popular brake controller models. If your Touareg has a factory tow package, then you will just need to connect the wires from the brake controller to the tow package wires under the dash. The tow package wiring may be located behind the lower appearance panel beneath the dash and to the right of the emergency brake pedal. It may be on the left, wrapped in grey foam. I have included a link to an FAQ article...

  • Does the Tow Package Wiring on a 2008 Chevy Colorado Match a Brake Controller Color for Color
    On the 2008 Chevy Colorado with a factory tow package, the wiring for a brake controller is located under the dash, to the left of the brake pedal. The wire bundle should have a white tag on it that also lists the functions of each wire. You will need to match the wires to the brake controller by function, not by color. On the brake controller, white is ground, black is 12 volt power, blue goes out to the trailer connector, and red is in from the stop light circuit on the brake switch. It...

    I spoke with a colleague who worked at Chrysler and he stated that they do not put the trailer hitch and 7-Way wiring on the Grand Caravan at the factory. That is something that the dealer installs. In any event here is what you will need to do. The brake controller will need to be hardwired into the vehicle. The white wire on the brake controller will need to get connected directly to the negative terminal on the vehicle battery. The black wire will need to connect to a 30 amp circuit...

    You will need to hardwire in a brake controller on your 2013 Ford Edge. First you will need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way. For that you will need an Brake Controller Installation Kit # ETBC7. This comes with everything you will need to install a fully functional 7-way and brake controller in your vehicle.

    Since the 1996 Toyota Tacoma has separate turn and brake signals, a converter is necessary. Fortunately, there is a plug-and-play harness, part # 118379, available for your Tacoma that makes installing very easy. It simply plugs in-line with the tail light connectors behind the tail light housings. Then you connect the ground wire to a good ground point on the truck frame and you are done. I have added a link to the part and a video of it being installed on a 2000 Tacoma. I have also...

  • Installing a Brake Controller on a 1988 GMC K 1500 Pickup Truck
    GM did not install a brake controller adapter port in the C/K series pick up trucks, so there are no plug-in adapters that will allow you to install a brake controller without having to run wires. If you already have 7-way connector at the rear of your truck, then you could use wiring kit # 5506. This kit includes a duplex wire to run a brake output circuit from the brake controller to your 7-way and to run a wire from the brake controller to the battery (via the circuit breaker) and...

  • Which Brake Switch Wire is Used When Installing Brake Controller on 2008 Dodge Ram 1500
    A brake controller has four wires exiting the rear of the controller, they attach as follows: the red wire attaches to the brake stoplight switch located at the top of the brake pedal. The color of the correct wire on the brake switch is usually a white wire with a tan stripe, but it could vary so it is best to find the correct wire you will need by testing the wires for function. The stoplight switch can have several wires exiting it, you will need a circuit tester like Quickee Tester,...

    Sounds like it could be the way your brake controller was installed.

Since you have a 2008 this newer body style has been known to need to be hardwired when installing the brake controller to function properly. I have linked a step by step Help Article for you to look at. I would also recommend to clean out any corrosion...

  • How to Find the Brake Switch Wire to Install a Brake Controller in a 2013 Ford Edge
    Traditionally (at least from 2004 to 2007) Ford has used a green wire on the brake switch to attach to the red wire on a brake controller. However, the only way to know for sure is to test the wires using a circuit tester like # 40376. Manufacturers can use any wire they want and if they run out of the normal color they use, they grab whatever is available to keep the assembly line moving. To test the wire use the circuit tester to probe the wires. You need the one that only shows power...

    If your trailer brakes are only working when you apply the manual override the issue is commonly the red wire - the stop light switch.
