Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

This adapter plugs into the 4-pin connector on your vehicle's built-in brake control wiring harness. The harness is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal.


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.

I’ve had the Timbren suspension enhancement system for a year now on my ‘99 Dodge 1500 4x4. I purchased this product because I had to tow my bumper pull three horse trailer from South Carolina to N. Central Montana. With a camper top, the bed loaded and the trailer loaded the truck sagged really bad. With the Timbrens on the sag went away completely. Making for a much safer less stressful experience while towing.

Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Electric brake controller was easy to install on my 2007 Ram 2500 diesel. I purchased the factory connector from e-trailer and snapped right in place. At 1st couldn’t find connector on vehicle but after going on e-trailer FAQ I found it. Picture included. Customer service was outstanding

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee

This etrailer part "Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers - Dodge - #3020-P" is a PERFECT fit for my 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Tekonsha P3 brake controller. After a LOT of research I discovered that in the Jeep Grand Cherokee WJ series (1999-2004) the 2001 model with "factory installed tow package", was the only year that did not have the 'the tucked away blue wire running back to the 7-pin trailer connector at the rear of the car. Instead a prewired connector was installed. According to the Jeep WJ users site, the Mopar part #56020142AB (wire harness with the appropriate connector for 2001 Jeep GC) had been discontinued, but Tekonsha Corp. (brake controller manufacturer) had a suitable replacement part. The page link on WJ Jeeps to the correct part at Tekonsha was broken and a search of Tekonsha's website produced no wiring that would even remotely help. After crawling under my dash and removing the electrical fuse cover I found a blue connector. I took a photo of the connector so that I hopefully could find a connector that would help me avoid a complete engine compartment to rear bumper wiring installation. Here on etrailer I found the brake controller I wanted and started looking at what I needed to make it operational. I tried everything I could think of (including writing the etrailer tech) to find out if the "Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers - Dodge - #3020-P would work for my 2001 Jeep. No one was certain. Sooo... I decided that at a cost of $14.99 it was worth it to buy - try - and return if necessary. I also figured if 'worst-came-to-worse' I may want to cut off the Dodge connector and use this shielded wire set instead of Tekonsha's wire harness by snipping off the Dodge connector. 5 minutes out of the box my Tekonsha P3 was lit up and a test light confirmed I had power to the factory installed 7-pin trailer connector at the rear using this etrailer part. It snapped into both connections perfectly. The 30" length sounded adequate, but looked short out of the box. It turns out I have many mounting options with this length. Although it may not be mounted for a day or 2, I've decided to mount it on the left side of the steering wheel column. That's well out of the way of my long legs and yet in easy reach for manually engaging the trailer brake with the hand lever on my brake controller while driving. I would recommend "Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers - Dodge - #3020-P" for ANY brake controller installed in a 2001 Jeep GC with the factory installed Mopar/Dodge connector. Just cut off the Tekonsha connector and butt connect the harnesses: BLUE to trailer connector * WHITE to ground - * RED to BRAKE switch (or recommended brake pedal connection point) * BLACK to battery + Attached photos: original Mopar brake controller harness for factory installed tow package 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee; etrailer's photo of the dodge connector for Tekonsha controller for visual comparison; a photo of the connector found under my dash; a photo of etrailer part #3020-P connected to my underdash connector; a photo showing the reach of the cable for a possible dash mount; and a photo showing the possible reach for a hidden ash tray mount.

This product was a very easy install and initial setup. Only complaint is lack of option when trailer is not hooked up. I would like to present set my boost settings and break output and save them before actually getting hooked to my trailer. Then custom tune it once hooked up. Other than that, everything seems to be top notch. When it came to the install, I chose to stray away from the typical mounting location and go with a point closer on the center console. If not for that the installation of the P3 would have taken less than 5 minutes from start to finish. Truly plug and play.

Purchased the wiring harness for my 2001 Dodge Durango and installed the brake controller. It was very easy, as my vehicle had a tow package installed already. Only took 20 minutes to hook up. Recommend this harness for similar suv's. Tested out perfectly. The price was better than all local sources. Trailer pic attached. Al Fox

Makes an install super easy. Wasn’t quite long enough for where I put the brake controller ( at the manual gear shift ). Would work for the usual place under the steering column, left or right sides . Etrailer kept me informed several times by email and phone of the back order on this cable. Great customer service. They still fulfilled the order quickly.

This made the controller truly plug and play. Worked perfectly on my 2009 Dodge Ram 1500. I got this for my Tekonsha Prodigy P3 when I purchased it here last year.

I have towed a 27 foot camper a little over 1K miles, so far in the last year this controller has worked as advertised. I would recommend it. Mounting the controller I would recommend you use two sided tape to try out different locations for visibility, adjustments and knee room. My truck has a tow package from the factory and the connector was already mounted to plug the wire harness. also have a 6 pin round and the five pin flat installed. For me it was a easy install.


Comments
After a year and only four trips total od 2400 miles I would say the controller works good. I keep the instruction card in the consul in case I need to adjust the level of pressure as load and conditions change.

Bought this along with the Tekonsha Primus brake controller. The plug matched up perfectly with the plug in my 2000 Dodge Ram. Use this unit quite often and never had any issue with operation. I remember having a few questions when ordering and called customer service. I actually got in touch with a real person fairly quickly and not some answering service to be placed on hold forever. They were very knowledgeable and helpful in deciding on which plug and controller to purchase for my application. Will purchase from this company again when the need arises.

I ordered the Tekonsha P3 and a wire harness for my 2006 Dodge 1500. The harness matched perfect and took about 10 minutes to attach it and zip tie it down. The P3 bracket took about 15 minutes and I was ready to go. Thank you all at etrailer for having the right info and the right set up for my vehicle. I say that due to getting the wrong wire harness on items I've ordered elsewhere. If I need anything else for my trailers I will use you all again!

What a fantastic experience I had purchasing my brake controller from etrailer.com!! I called from my vacation in the middle of a small town of Wallowa, Oregon, and spoke to Tayler K., she helped me with my purchase and expedited my order. I was stuck with no trailer brakes and needed to drive over a mountain pass within two days. With Tayler K.'s help, my brake controller arrived in less than 24 hours!! That is excellent customer service. The controller I purchased, the Tekonsha Prodigy P3, is fantastic and gave me the perfect boost and brake control I needed to go over the mountian passes, with my 40' 5th wheel. Thank you again Tayler K. and etrailer for your great service. Wade

We've had this brake controller on our truck now for over 6 years. It has been the best one we have had. Very smooth consistent braking. Simple menu and adjustments. The screen light was too bright at night even when on the lowest setting but changing the color helped. Overall I would definitely buy this again and recommend it!

2005 Dodge Ram Pickup

I purchased the Tekonsha P3 proportional brake controller and the Plug-in Wiring adaptor for my Dodge Ram Diesel 2005. It shipped promptly and arrived on schedule. I plugged it into the under-dash socket in about 30 seconds and tried it out before installing it; it powered up immediately and everything looked good. It took a few minutes to install the P3 bracket to the dashboard just to right of the steering column and about the level of my knee. The adaptor has enough length to put it left or right of the steering column, but not very high on the dash. The adaptor made the installation quite simple – gathering the tools and deciding controller placement took 20 minutes out of the total 30 minute installation time. The actual installation was to drill 2 holes and screw in 2 screws to the dash and 2 screws to the pocket bracket, then tying the cord to other wiring behind the dash. Settings for electric brakes and other info into the unit took under 2 minutes. Wow! What a difference - the braking was strong, smooth and uniform. I can only compare on my vehicle to braking without a controller unit engaging the trailer brakes, but it showed me how important those brakes are to an easy and safe stop. I have driven other people’s trucks with loaded horse trailers, and their controller units did not give anything like the constant readout of trailer brake voltage and other information this one gives you. This is obviously a high quality unit with everything I need and more. My priority is horse safety on the road and that includes smooth, proportional braking. I like the ability to monitor the voltage of the vehicle system, the volts and amps to the trailer, and troubleshooting capabilities. I spent 6 or 8 hours reading everything on brake controllers before ordering this one, and compared it to several other highly-rated units. While it is available for similar pricing from eBay and other sites, I found etrailer.com's website to make things very easy, such as finding the exact Plug-in Adaptor for my vehicle, finding videos about various controllers, and finding instructions for installing the unit. Thanks to the etrailer.com website, I was able to check under my dash to verify the brake controller plug was there waiting to be used, and I had a very realistic idea of the installation procedure in advance. Getting the Plug Adaptor in the same shipment was important too, and let me install it immediately. I was glad I ordered from etrailer.com and would not hesitate to order from them again.


Comments
This review was so helpful after all my own research that it helped me feel cofident in my decision to try this connector on my 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the factory tow package. Like she said. It takes longer to decide where to put it than it did to take it out of the box, plug it in and tie the cable neatly in place.One thing that she didnt say is that the sheathing around the 4 wires keeps the bundle as neat and clean as Ive ever seen in a wiring harness.

Still working great. I have not even used all the diagnostic features lately. Trips as far as Orlando to Dallas to Houston and back. No issues, and I have put it on and off about 10 times, ie unplugged it when trailer not hitched. Easy to adjust the boost on the brakes.
Janine P - 12/10/2015


Comments
This part made it easy to install, and I have unplugged the controller each time I unhitch the trailer, then put it back in, clipping the plug-in adapter to the back and snapping the unit into its bracket, probably 10 times this year. Clicks in great each time, unit works perfectly and I use different boost when horse is not in the trailer, due to change in weight.

    The P2 # 90885 and the P3 # 90195 are both excellent controllers. Internally they are the same controller. The only difference is the P3 has a more advanced display setup that allows for easier understanding of what's going on with the controller and trailer. The P2 would work well for you. To install either controller in a 2007 Dodge Ram would only require the install harness part # 3020-P.

  • Recommended Wiring for Brake Controller On a 1995 Dodge Ram 1500

This will give you all the circuit breakers, wiring, and the 7-WAY connector. The only thing you will need to do is use butt connectors like # DW05745-10 to splice the 4 way round wiring into the 4 way flat wiring connections as the connector ends will need to be hardwired to each other.

  • Why Does a Trailer Brake Controller Stay On when the Key is Turned Off on a 2002 Dodge Ram 2500
    I am not sure which brake controller you are using but most controllers are connected to a fused power source directly to the battery and not an ignition source. This means the controller can draw power even with the key off. However, most will go into a kind of sleep mode after about 15 minutes of inactivity and will not draw much if any power from the vehicle battery.

  • Brake Controller Needed and Differences Between Electric and Electric/Hydraulic Braking Systems
    I'd be happy to explain that a bit for you. There are a few different braking systems available for trailers, with electric being the most common. The brake controller sends voltage back to the electromagnets in the brake assemblies, which stick to the inside of the drums, spreading the brake drums apart so they push against the inside of the drums helping to stop the trailer. Some trailers use hydraulic brakes, like cars do. These can be actuated by a surge coupler that compresses...

  • Brake Controller Wiring on a 2000 Dodge Dakota with Factory Tow Package
    All fuses and breakers needed for the operation of your brake controller should already be in place. You can check your owner's manual for the location of the fuses that manage the tow package. All you should have to do is plug in one end of the wiring adapter, part # 3020P to the port next to the emergency brake, then attach the other end to the brake controller. The connection point should be under the dash, near the top of the emergency brake pedal. The actual connector will be light...

  • Installing a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2006 Dodge Ram with Factory 4-Way
    On a 2006 Dodge Ram that came with a factory installed 4-Way trailer connector the brake (blue) wire does not run all the way back to the back of the truck; it stops at the connector that is located under the driver's side wheel well. In order to finalize the installation you must splice into this wire and continue it back to the plug. The 12 volt circuit wire is also not present at the back so what I recommend is to use about 20 feet of wire # 10-2-1 (sold by the foot) to complete the...

  • Where Is Brake Controller Port Located On 2001 Dodge Durango For Installation Of Adapter, # 3020-P
    If your 2001 Dodge Durango has the factory installed 7-way trailer connector on the rear bumper, the port for the brake controller should be located near the emergency brake pedal. I am sending a video link of a brake controller installation on a 2003 Dodge Dakota and at the 45 second mark it shows the location of the brake controller port under the dash that should help you locate the port on your vehicle. You can check the port with a circuit tester to see if one of the pins supplies...

  • Parts Needed to Install and Electric Trailer Brake Controller on a 2002 Dodge Dakota
    If your 2002 Dodge Dakota does not have a factory installed 7-Way trailer connector at the rear, you will need 3 items to install a brake controller. First, you will need the brake controller itself. I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, # 90885. The P2 is one of our most popular brake controllers because it is easy to set up and use. Next, you will need a 4-Way trailer wiring harness if you do not already have one. To add one, you will need Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, # 118329....

  • Locating Blue Wire On Motorhome When Installing Brake Controller
    Larger motor homes typically do not come with the brake controller wiring installed. The first step I would take is to make sure that the connector you found on the motor home under the dash is indeed for a brake controller. If the connector on the motor home matches the connector you purchased, then you should be able to plug in the harness and test the pins for the black and the red wires using a circuit tester like part # 40376. The black wire should show 12 volt power all the time,...

  • Brake Controller Wiring Harness for a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Factory Plug
    If your 2001 Jeep Cherokee had the factory 7-Way wiring the Brake Control Wiring Adapter, # 3020-P, would be the correct harness. If your Jeep did not come with a factory 7-Way you could still try it and in the event it doesn't work all you would need to do is cut off the end that plugs into the vehicle and hardwire the wires to the vehicle wiring by function. On the harness the white wire is ground, black is 12 volt power in, blue is output to the trailer brakes and red is input from...

  • How to Wire Older Tekonsha Brake Controller 5288 to 2009 Dodge Ram 2500
    We have put together a chart for matching vehicle wiring to the standard 4 colors on the brake controllers. The colors will wire as follows: white/red to black, blue/white to red, green/black to white, and blue to blue. I will include a link to the page with this chart on it. It is toward the middle of the page. All you have to do is follow the wire color chart and make sure your connections are good and your brake controller should work fine.
