Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

Brake-Control Adapter Port

This adapter plugs into the built-in connector beneath your vehicle's dashboard. To access this connector, first locate the instrument cluster finish panel in the center of you dash, near the driver's side. Carefully pry the panel out and undo the locking tabs to remove the panel. Plug the adaptor into the mating connector in the large gray housing behind the panel.


To install your electric brake controller you need to connect the wiring of the controller to your vehicle. Certain manufacturers offer pre-wired options, typically known as tow packages, wherein these wires are run for you from the dash to the trailer connector on the back of your vehicle. Often, a brake controller wiring harness is included with your tow package. This harness plugs into a port beneath your dash and connects to the four wires of the brake controller. If, however, you have a brake controller with a plug in place of the four loose wires, you can use the Tekonsha adapter.


This adapter requires no hardwiring. It is designed to plug directly into your electric brake controller for the simplest installation possible. Because there are no wires to connect, installation is not permanent. You can unplug and remove your brake controller at any time and securely stow it away.

Video Transcript for Tekonsha Brake Controller 22292 Review

Now we're going to review Part Number 22292. This is the Tekonsha Tow Ready Plug-in Wiring Adapter for Draw-Tite and Tekonsha electric brake controllers. This is a custom fit part number. This part is designed to fit the Ford F-150 starting in 2009. It will fit the 2012 to 2013 Ford Flex with the factory tow package, and it will also fit the Lincoln MKT with the factory tow package starting in 2012. Now this wiring adapter will make it very easy installation of your electric brake controller. On one end right here, the large connector is a custom connector.

This will plug in to your built-in factory brake controller port that's usually beneath the dash of your vehicle. The other end, which is just the black flat connector, will plug in to the back of your electric brake controller. Now this part is compatible with time-delayed brake controllers by Draw-Tite, and it's also compatible with proportional brake controllers like the Tekonsha Prodigy, the Prodigy P2, the Prodigy P3, the Tekonsha Primus IQ, and the Voyager. Basically, when you go to install this, here's an example. I have a Prodigy P3 brake controller right here. We do sell this separately on our website.

If you look at the back, you'll see there's the plug-in. Just take your black flat plug. Go ahead and push it in and you can see that it snaps right in, locks into place. Your other end, which is the larger gray plug, you'll just find the connector that's underneath your dash that will match up to this. Plug it in and you'll be ready to use your break controller.

When you're done, if you want to remove the brake controller, just lift up on the tab and it will pop right off. That should do it for the review on Part Number 22292. This is the Tekonsha Tow Ready Plug-in Wiring Adapter for the Draw-Tite and Tekonsha electric brake controllers. .

Item Purchased: Tekonsha P3 Controller and OEM Cable for 2010 F150 Ford Lariat I couldn't be more satisfied with the Outstanding and Expeditious service I received from etrailer.com. This is my first experience with etrailer.com, I will definitely refer this site as a must use resource for anyone in need of the service and products you provide. 41139

Easy install on my 2010 F 150 XLT. There are 2 possible locations for the trailer wiring harness if your vehicle did not come equipped with the mfg brake control. Consult owners manual. My harness was located below steering colum behind lower dash. I routed my harness to the left side behind the parking brake release lever. You may have to remove the outer sleeve of the factory harness depening on your vehicle. Mounted the mounting bracket with double sided foam tape and predrilled holes before screwing in place. Mounted the Pod brake control and tested. 5 stars! 557183

We own a 2015 Ford F150 SuperCrew, 3.5 EcoBoost with Max Tow package. Of course, equipped like this, the truck came with a factory-installed, integral brake controller. That's good news. The bad news is that there various internet forums report there to be an unusually high failure rate of these factory controllers. So, being a bit paranoid about being out in the middle-of-nowhere in our truck and travel trailer and suddenly having (a) locked brakes, or (b) no brakes at all, I decided to install a high quality aftermarket controller. Based on company reputation and prior experience with Tekonsha products, I selected the P3 and proper 'plug and play' wiring harness. Following Tekonsha's instructions as well as vehicle-specific on-line videos, I found the installation to be super easy. I elected NOT to take the truck to the Ford dealer to have the computer re-flashed for the absence of the factory controller. Now, each time the truck is started, I have to click "OK" to clear the 'TRAILER BRAKE FAULT" message... to me that's no big deal. Also, when compared side-by-side, the Ford controller seems flimsy and cheap, whereas the P3 has a quality feel, fit and finish. Wanting the controller to be easy to see and easy to reach, I chose to install the P3 on top of the dash. So, I am delighted with the Tekonsha P3 and - as always - with etrailer's service. 402275

installed on a 2009 F-150 everything was as advertised. It was plug and play. My truck had the wire plug behind the dash so was easy to hook up. I installed it in the hole below the coin holder. To reach the pre-wired plug you have to remove the panel anyway. I don't like any wires showing or anything I might hit with my leg. So did not mount it on the lower dash. You have to pull the plastic box out to unplug the connector. So just cut off the back of the box off and run the connector through the hole and connect to the controller. This way you can remove the controller anytime you want. Also you can see the readout much easier then mounting it on the lower dash. See pics 333617

George to be honest I have only been able to use the controller a couple of times. We moved 3 hours north of Houston and had to leave the trailer in storage in Houston while I wait for a workshop storage unit to be built on site on our new property. The few times I have used it I was impressed. Couldnt even tell I was towing the trailercamper.

Plug into truck harness and then brake controller, works perfect. Just like every single trailer wiring purchase I have previously made from etrailer. Fast shipping and free expert advice. Great company to deal with. E Trailer is bar none the very best merchant I deal with on the web. The 2015 ford F150 trailer harness plug is up in the dash plugged into a recess. I never would have found it but the e trailer team told me where to look. Even the Ford dealer could not find it! Dealer wanted to take the whole instrument panel out. E trailer guys said just pull up on the panel adjacent to steering wheel and there it was. Saved me an expensive dealer visit and I hooked it up myself in about 10 minutes. Thank you e trailer! 181725

Worked great. Very easy to install. I cut a hole in the back of the dash cubby hole to the right of the steering wheel for the wires to pass through and used adhesive velcro to mount the brake controller in the cubby. The brake controller is held with velcro on the bottom and the sides and does not vibrate or move at all. Very easy install and the only hole I drilled was in the back of the cubby hole and the brake controller is very easy to reach for braking and adjusting. I wanted to slide the controller further back in the cubby, but the velcro started sticking early and I left it. It could probably slide back another 1/2" to 3/4". Not much, but would be nicer. I may pull it out in the future to get it seated further back, but the velcro is really strong so I don't want to mess with it right now. 593608

  • 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.

  • Troubleshooting Ford Factory Trailer Brake Controller that Fails to Operate EOH Trailer Brakes
  • The factory integrated brake controller in your 2013 Ford F-150 does have a second operation setting for EOH trailer brakes, unlike the 2012 and earlier model year controllers. So, it SHOULD work with your Titan BrakeRite EHB Electric-Hydraulic Actuator # T4813100 WITHOUT the adapter # T4846000. If you have access to a trailer with electric brakes you can test the controller (using its electric trailer brake setting, of course) to see if it functions correctly in that mode. If not it...

  • What is the Difference Between Prodigy P2 and P3 Brake Controllers
  • The biggest differences between the Prodigy P2 brake controller, # 90885, and the P3 brake controller, # 90195, are the display, buttons and look of the controllers. I like the buttons and display on the P3 controller myself because the display uses actual words for setup and troubleshooting rather than the display codes that the P2 uses. This makes it easier for me to know that I am adjusting the correct function or see the trouble shooting codes without referring back to the installation...

  • To convert the factory 4-Way flat trailer connector on the back of your 2010 Ford F-150, you will need Adapter 4 Pole to 7 Pole and 4 Pole, # 37185. You will plug the factory 4-Way into the back of the adapter and hardwire the remaining 4 wires. The white wire gets grounded to the vehicle frame. The blue wire on the adapter carries the brake controller output voltage, and the black adapter wire carries the 12-volt accessory voltage for any trailer mounted accessories that might need...

If you do have trailer brakes you would need the # 37185 and the install harness part # 22292. If you check out the install video I attached you will see how the connections would be made.

  • How to Install a 7-Way Trailer Connector on a 2017 Ford F-150
  • In order to install a 7-way trailer connector on your 2017 Ford F-150, you are first going to need to install a 4-way trailer connector and then a 4 to 7-way trailer connector. For this, I recommend using the Hopkins Plug-In Simple Wiring Harness part # HM11140735 and the Hopkins Adapter 4-Pole to 7-Pole and 4-Pole part # 37185. The 4-way harness will be a direct plug and play option whereas the 7-way will require you to make two wiring connections. The two connections needed for the 7-way...

  • Engine Will Not Start with Brake Controller and # 3034-P Wiring Adapter Installed on 2009 Ford F-150
  • It looks like you have an incorrect wiring harness connecting the P2 brake controller, # 90885, to the factory brake controller port on your 2009 Ford F-150. The # 3034-P brake controller wiring harness is designed for the Ford E series vans and the Super Duty trucks, not the F-150 trucks. The correct harness for your truck is the Brake Control Wiring Adapter for Ford F-150, # 22292. This harness has the same connector but a different wiring configuration. I produced a short video, see...

  • Installing a Brake Controller in a 2016 Ford F-150 with Factory 4-Way Flat Connector
  • For your 2016 Ford F-150, the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 # 90885 is a great option. To install this, you will need the wiring harness # 22292. This adapter plugs into the built-in connector beneath your vehicle's dashboard. To access this connector, first locate the instrument cluster finish panel in the center of you dash, near the driver's side. Carefully pry the panel out and undo the locking tabs to remove the panel. Plug the adaptor into the mating connector in the large gray housing behind...

  • Adding a 7-Way Connector and Brake Controller to a 2018 Ford F-150 with Factory 4-Way
  • I will be happy to get your 2018 Ford F-150 set up with a 7-Way trailer connector and a brake controller. The method for doing so that requires the fewest parts is to hardwire in the brake controller/7-Way. Since your truck already has a factory 4-Way connector you will just need # ETBC7 to add a 7-Way, retain the 4-Way, and have the parts needed to install a brake controller as well as run a 12 volt hot lead. If you do not already have a brake controller picked out I recommend the...

This adapter plugs into the built-in connector beneath your vehicle's dashboard. To access this connector, first locate the coin tray above the 4x4 dial. It will be behind that once you pry it out.

  • How to Install a Brake Controller on a 2017 Ford F-150
  • Assuming you already have a trailer hitch like the Curt # C14017 and a 4-Way like the Curt # C56110 installed on your 2017 Ford F-150 you just need the Universal Wiring Kit # ETBC7 to use a brake controller. This kit includes an adapter that plugs into an existing 4-Way connector and provides you with both a 7-Way and a 4-Way connector making it easy to switch between towing applications. Everything needed to fully activate your 7-Way for the brakes and a charge line for the battery...

  • Trailer Brake Controller Wiring Harness for 2013 Ford F150
  • According to Tekonsha, the # 22292 wiring adapter is indeed the correct item to install a brake controller on your 2013 Ford F150. Keep in mind that if your truck was not equipped with the factory tow package, including the OEM 7-way, you might be missing some fuses or relays in the fuse box to fully activate the tow package. You would need to see your Ford dealer for the appropriate relays. If you have the OEM 7-way, the installation should be a plug-and-play proposition. The connector...

  • Brake Controller and Wiring Harness for a 2016 Ford F-150
  • If your new Ford F-150 came with the factory installed brake controller then you would not have to add an aftermarket one to activate the trailer brakes. If the truck does not have the factory controller and you need to control the brakes then you will need one. For a brake controller I recommend the P2, # 90885, because its easy to set up and use and it is reliable. You will also need the appropriate wiring harness to plug the controller into the truck. You did not mention the year...

  • Installation of Brake Controller On My 2011 Ford F-150 Without Tow Package
  • It is possible that the wires you are looking for have been terminated farther up the frame rail or may not have been ran back. Typically the wires would run to where the factory 4-way is plugged into, usually near the spare tire. If you cannot locate the wires, you will just need to hardwire the brake controller and 7-way, which is not as bad as it sounds (we have a kit for this). You will need the Brake Controller 4 and 7-way Installation Kit, part # ETBC7. To install, you will begin...

  • How To Install A Brake Controller on a 2009 Ford F-150
  • Installing a brake controller system on a 2009 Ford F-150 is very simple thanks to the brake controller port they provide. The port is in a funny location but you simply plug in the brake controller and you are done. The most popular brake controller we carry is the Tekonsha Prodigy. For a Prodigy for your truck, you would use part # 90185 and adapter # 22292 and it will include a wiring harness that will allow you to simply plug the controller into the truck. No cutting, splicing or...

  • Adding a 7-Way and Brake Controller to a 2015 Ford Expedition with Factory 4-Way
  • From what we have found the 2015 Ford Expedition that came with a factory 4-Way connector will need a little bit of hardwiring to install a brake controller and 7-Way connector. You will need # 37185, some wire (more on that later), a brake controller, and a brake controller wiring harness. The 37185 will plug into the 4-Way. Then you will ground the white wire to the frame. That will leave a blue wire, black wire, and purple wire. The purple wire is for reverse lights so if the trailer...

To access this connector, first locate the instrument cluster finish panel in the center of you dash, near the driver's side. Carefully pry the panel out and undo the locking tabs to remove the panel. Plug the adaptor into the mating connector in the large gray housing behind the panel. I attached an install video that shows how this is done as well.

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch Recommendation for 2018 Ford F-150 without Tow Package with 10k Capacity
  • If you bought a 2018 Ford F-150 like you referenced without a factory trailer hitch we have the Curt hitch part # C14017 that is a confirmed fit for it and has a 10,000 lb trailer towing capacity like want. I attached an install video for this hitch for you to check out as well. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P3 Brake Controller part # 90195. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup. This is a proportional...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution and Brake Controller for 2013 Ford Flex Towing a TrailManor 3023
  • To actuate the brakes on your Trailmanor camper, you would indeed need to install a brake controller. If the factory tow package on your Flex includes the OEM 7-way on the back bumper, the install would be plug-and-play, using the # 22292 Brake Controller Wiring Adapter. The wiring adapter would plug into the connector located under the dash pretty much directly below the steering column as shown in the photos I have edited for you. You can't go wrong with the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part...

  • How to Convert a 4-Way to a 7-Way on a 2017 Ford F-150
  • If you are just needing a 7-Way to activate the lights on your trailer then you will simply need to use the Hopkins # 37185 that you referenced along with a No-Drill Mount Bracket # 18140 as depicted at the start of the attached installation video on a 2011 Ford F-150. For a fully functioning 7-Way that has power to the Brake Controller and 12V Power you will simply need some Deka Jacketed 2 Wire # 10-2-1 and Butt Connectors # DW05745-5. You will want to splice the Blue wire from the...

  • 7-Way Trailer Connector Needed for 2015 Ford F-150
  • I recommend using the Hopikins Adapter 4- to 7-Pole and 4-Pole # 37185. This connector will work with the existing 4-way connector on your vehicle. Using this adapter, you will be able to tow trailers with 7-way connectors or 4-way connectors. There are a few additional parts we used when installing this connector. When connecting to your existing 4-way connector, dielectric grease # 11755 will help to protect the connection. We recommend securing this connection with a zip tie and...

  • Installation of 7-Way and Brake Controller on 2016 Ford Expedition with Factory 4-way
  • For your 2016 Ford Expedition, I recommend the Prodigy P3 # 90195 for a brake controller due to the ease of use and reliability. It is a customer favorite because of the LCD screen and diagnostics as well as preset boost options. You will then use custom wiring adapter # 22292 which connects to a factory harness behind your dash. I've attached installation instructions to assist. As you stated, there is a blue brake wire and there is also a hot lead wire that is orange or red. This...

You are correct about having the correct equipment to help prevent any contact with the truck and camper, even in an emergency situation. Let's start with the hitch, the Curt # C14002 is a great hitch for his truck if it didn't already come with one.
