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.

2009 Ford F-150

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

2015 Ford F-150

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

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

This is my third truck using my prodigy brake controller with the plug in adapter. As in the past the wiring is heavy gauge to match vehicle & installed with ease. I used the prodigy mount bracket to take up space & slid it in factory controller slot. I can unplug it when not in use if I want & interior looks stock. I make a slot in back of dash compartment to feed adapter wire through for easy plug in & out. Product was revived quickly & ordering on etrailer site was a breeze. Would definitely recommend this plug & play adapter 889480
