  • Vehicle Specific

Designed for your vehicle with a factory tow package, this wiring harness plugs into the quick-connect harness located under your dashboard and into your Hopkins Agility, Impulse, Reliance or BrakeForce brake controller for easy installation.


  • Connects your Hopkins brake controller to your vehicle's factory tow package
    • 1 Plug is inserted into the back of your electric brake control
    • 1 Plug is inserted into the factory-installed port under your dashboard
  • Requires no cutting or splicing wires for installation - just plug and play
  • Works with Hopkins Plug-In Simple brake controllers (Agility, Impulse, Reliance and BrakeForce)
  • 90-Day limited warranty

Tech Tip: The OEM plug in your vehicle is located under the dashboard to the left of the steering column.

This brake control wiring adapter will simplify the installation of your Hopkins electric brake controller. Once the brake controller is installed, the harness then plugs into a port under the dash. Because your vehicle has a factory tow package, all the wires for the brake controller have already been run from the 7-way trailer connector at the back of the truck to the plug under the dash. If your vehicle does not have a factory 7-way, additional wiring will be necessary to complete installation.

Video Transcript for Hopkins Brake Controller HM53035 Review

Today we're going to review part number HM53035. This is the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Brake Control Wiring Adapter. Now this is a custom-fit part. It is designed to fit the Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee with the factory tow package starting in 2011. Now on any type of custom-fit part I do recommend you go to our website, use our Fit Guide, put in your year and model vehicle, and that will determine if this part will work for your application. Now this will connect your Hopkins brake controller to your vehicle's factory tow package. Basically one plug right here, the black one, is inserted into the back of your electric brake controller, and the other plug right here you can see is designed to insert into the factory-installed port that's under your dashboard.

Now usually the OEM plug on these vehicles is located under the dashboard to the left of your steering column. This requires no cutting or splicing of wires for installing it. Just plug it into both ends and it's ready to go. Now again this plug-in right here is designed to work only with the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Brake Controllers which are the Agility, the Impulse, the Reliance, and the BrakeForce models. Total overall length on this fully extended out measures about 36 inches. That should do it for the review on part number HM53035, the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Brake Control Wiring Adapter.

Awesome product. Small and unassuming yet works well. I bought this brake controller simply because i just didn't want to see a box attached to my dash. And I received exactly what I was hoping for. Yes there's still a box, but it's attached to the kick panel under the dash as opposed to being directly on the dash. Highly recommended. 224431

- HM53035

Easy-Peasy.......Play and Play. Installation could not have been easier. You guys have come a long way from spending hours under the dash trying to find the correct wires. Easy to install, looks good, works as it should. 186499

Still working Just like new!

  • Husky Brake Controller Install Harness Recommendation for a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    The Hopkins brake controller wiring harness # HM53035 will not plug right into your Husky Quest brake controller. But you could still use it even if the end that plugs into the controller is not compatible. You would simply cut off that end and hardwire the controller to the harness. From our understanding Hopkins makes the Husky brake controllers, but they change the connectors so this one won't plug right in. The wire functions for the Quest controller and the harness are white for...

  • Does Brake Controller Install Harness for Jeep Grand Cherokee Also Fit Dodge Vehicles
    Dodge and Jeep are both made by the same company which is why the harnesses for a Jeep might have Dodge in the descriptions. The harnesses typically fit several vehicles by the same manufacturer so some Jeep vehicle and Dodge vehicles are listed. The install harness part # HM53035 fits the following vehicles: 2011 - 2019 Dodge Durango with factory 7-Way 2011 - 2019 Jeep Grand Cherokee with factory 7-Way 2017 - 2019 Chrysler Pacifica with factory 7-Way

  • Installing an Electric Trailer Brake Controller in a 2018 Chrysler Pacifica
    Since you already have a 7-way trailer connector and a brake controller all you should need is the adapter to connect the controller. That's assuming the 7-way is factory installed. If you've installed it yourself, or had it installed aftermarket let me know. If it's a factory 7-way there's going to be a connector under the dash above the steering column not far from where it goes through the firewall. The connector you're looking for probably has a green cover over it. Once you...

  • Troubleshooting Installation of Hopkins InSight Trailer Brake Controller
    I could not find any order history based on your email address but for the Hopkins InSight trailer brake controller if you see power levels indicated when you press the manual override lever there should be output on the blue wire that gets routed to your 7-way trailer connector. If your Durango has a factory 7-way, installation will use wiring adapter # HM53035 to connect to the under-dash port. If it does not have a factory 7-way then the InSIGHT would have been hardwired. Either way,...

  • Installing Brake Controller in 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee w/ Knee Airbags
    We've installed several brake controllers on the 2014 Grand Cherokee, we were able to install the controller on the lip running along the bottom edge of the dash, as you can see in the video I've linked for you. A proportional controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885 will work just fine for you. You'd need the # 3045-P wiring adapter as well. Another option would be the Curt Echo, part # C51180. The Echo would plug inline between the 7-way on the vehicle and the trailer's...

  • Does 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Hopkins Brake Controller Installation Require Separate Switch
    If your 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee has a factory installed 7-way trailer socket at the back bumper then you will want to order the Hopkins Agility Trailer Brake Controller along with its matching quick-connect adapter. The part number for the controller itself is # HM47294; the adapter is # HM53035. If your Grand Cherokee does NOT have a factory 7-way then instead of the adapter you'll need to order the controller unit # HM47297 and a brake controller install kit, part # ETBC7, which inckudes...

  • Will Hopkins Brake Controller Install Harness # HM53015 Fit Hopkins InSIGHT Brake Controller
    Yes, the Hopkins brake controller install harness part # HM53015 that you referenced will work with the Hopkins InSIGHT brake controller part # HM47297 that you referenced. Looks like you might have a 2012 Dodge Durango though which means the correct install harness is actually the part # HM53035.
