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.

Video Transcript for Tekonsha Brake Controller 3021-P Review

Today we're going to review part number 3021-P. This is the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for the Draw Tite and Tekonsha Electric Brake Controllers. This is a custom fit part number. It is designed to fit the 2010 to 2012 Dodge Ram and Ram 1500, 2500 Heavy Duty and 3500 Heavy Duty Trucks. This wiring adapter will make it easy to install your electric brake controller on your vehicle. One end here has the custom connector end which will plug into your built-in brake controller port on your vehicle, usually located beneath the dash of the vehicle. The other end is the flat, black plug.

This plugs into the back of your Tekonsha Electric Brake Controller. This wiring harness is compatible with the time delayed brake controllers by Draw Tite and the proportional brake controllers by Tekonsha like the Prodigy, Prodigy P2, P3, the Primus IQ and the Voyager. Basically the way you would install this, I've got an example here, a Prodigy P3. We do sell this separately on our website, it's part number 90195. If you look on the back you can see the plug in for the black connector. If we just push it on it'll lock right into place. Then you just take the other end with the grey custom connector on it.

This will run underneath your dash and plug into the factory brake controller port on your vehicle. Once it's all connected in then you're ready to go. When you need to remove your brake controller all you need to do is lift up on your connector and it will slide right off and disconnect. That should do it for the review on part number 3021-P. This is the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for the Draw Tite and Tekonsha Electric Brake Controllers. .

Order this adapter cable early afternoon on a Tuesday and it shipped same day. I paid for standard shipping and they upgraded the shipping at no cost. I received the cable on Thursday. The cable is well made. I installed it Thursday after work and I am very happy with the quality. It is listed for 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 but I have a 2011. It is the same connector though. Once connected everything looks correct from and operations perspective. It recognized that the trailer was not connected so first test complete. I have not tested it with the trailer yet because my truck is not broken in enough with only 150 miles. Will be testing it out hopefully in a few weeks. 8424

I had to do an adaptation to override the built-in braking system on my 2010 Ram 3500 and etrailer had all the answers and parts in stock and ready to go. Love this site. I do a lot of hauling and will be back for anything I need. Great prices and quick delivery, what more could you ask for. Thank you etrailer, 103763

Well, I have not installed the product as of today, so this review is more on etrailer's service, or the lack thereof. This product took 2 weeks to be delivered, and that was with it being in stock! I notified etrailer of this issue after checking a couple of times on when it would be delivered, and the original shipping listed it as 3-4 days, and basically the checks in the mail sort of thing. Now this wasn't the "free" shipping, I actually had to pay for this type of "service". I didn't want to even have to write a review, and that is what I responded to them in an email... but their response to me stating that I thought it was poor service, was... we "value our customers opinion". No apology, no here is 10% of your next order.... nothing! so I told them in that case I would change my mind and go ahead and write the review. So, for the couple of bucks I saved going thru them this time I will just use Amazon and my Prime membership where they at least truly "value" their customers opinions, and reports of poor service. Also, if you are in any kind of a hurry for your product you order, forget it! Might as well just grab it off the shelf at the local store, or better yet, find an online retailer who values their customers time and money and guarantees to get it there on time, and makes up for it if it isn't, regardless of who's fault it is. Just my 2 cents... 431434

Everything arrived on time and as advertised. Installation went without a hitch. The imbedded controller was removed without a problem and the wiring adapter worked as advertised. The EVIC does display an error but is easily corrected by depressing the back button before shifting into gear, Another good experience with etrailer! Ken L 177123

I bought this controller with the adapter harness to fit my 2012 Ram. I installed it in the location the factory controller would go into in about 15 minutes. Plugged right in and worked great. I couldn't be happier with it. 403288

2012 Dodge Ram Pickup

Purchased this product, along with the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 brake controller, to replace an OEM brake controller in my 2012 Ram 3500 which was a timed unit, as contrasted with the P3's proportional braking action. This adapter fit the OEM plug perfectly, and braking function is now, at least in my opinion, greatly improved on all my trailers. Thanks, Tekonsha and eTrailer! (There was a minor aggravation which had nothing to do with the eTrailer parts; with the OEM unit unplugged and out of the system, the onboard computer turned on a red light on the dash, and an occasional message to "service the trailer brake system". Dealer techs tell me they can't turn it off, and I've gotten used to it. Just a FYI for any one who embarks on the same path as I did - it will either save you time at the dealer, or expose you to more knowledgeable dealer techs than I had....) JM 664608

  • Installation of Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller on a 2011 Dodge Ram Pickup
    It sounds like your Ram pickup is in the 4th generation which is from 2010 to present so I would think that the 2013 video would be closer related than the 2008, which is part of the 3rd generation. I also linked a snapshot from the directions of the adapter plug # 3021-P which shows where the corresponding plug on your vehicle will be. I wish we had more vehicle installs but are limited by what customers vehicles come into our shop. Where to mount the Tekonsha P3 # 90195 is generally...

Both offer compatibility with either electric or electric-over-hydraulic brakes, both allow a 360-degree vertical plane operating range and both provide proportional braking to minimize wear and tear on your vehicle and trailer brakes.

    The Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter # 3021-P that you referenced would be the correct harness to use to install a Tekonsha brake controller in your 2012 Dodge Ram 1500. If you have not picked out a brake controller yet I would recommend you check out the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller # 90885.

    The # 3021-P is a fit for 2010-2012 Dodge Ram trucks. Your Grand Caravan wasn't equipped with the plug under the dash for installing a brake controller, so you'll need to hardwire your controller. Have no fear, we have the resources to help you complete the installation, including a how-to article and an install video that will walk you through the process. First, you'll want to choose a brake controller. I'd recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885. The P2 is extremely easy to...

    The excellent Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Brake Controller # 90195 is intended for mounting with its included bracket as shown in the linked installation video. This unit's size and shape will prevent it from fitting properly in the small recess in your dash where the OEM brake controller goes. So long as your Ram has a factory 7-way at the back bumper all you need to wire in the P3 is harness # 3021-P, which connects between the controller and the under-dash ports.

    Yes, the new brake controller will work whether or not you have the ITBM reprogrammed on your 2012 Ram 2500. I recommend the P2 # 90885. It will require harness # 3021-P which will plug into a connector located under the dash near the emergency brake pedal. I have linked the instructions for this harness for you.

Also take a look at the video I have linked which will help to locate and identify the correct connector. The one you are looking for will have 4 pins.

  • Installing an Aftermarket Trailer Brake Controller on a 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 with Factory Controller
    To install an aftermarket brake controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy, you will have to disconnect the Integrated Trailer Brake Module. Doing so will turn on a warning lamp on the instrument cluster. In order to disconnect the ITBM and not get the warning lamp, your local Dodge dealer will have to reconfigure the TIPM (Totally Integrated Power Module), of the truck. Once the TIPM has been reconfigured, and the ITBM has been unplugged, you can use a vehicle specific brake control harness. To...

    For a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 with a 7-way there is a port under the dash that will be used for the install of a brake controller. The install harness part # 3021-P is the harness to use. The plug you are looking for is a white, square connector above the brake pedal. I attached a picture that points it out.

  • How To Reset Computer On 2010 Dodge 3500 After Replacing Factory Brake Controller With Prodigy P3
    What you might do is disconnect the vehicle battery for a minimum of 3 minutes with the Prodigy P3 brake controller still plugged in and that should allow the computer to reset and not be looking for the factory brake controller. If that does not work, then you will want to take your vehicle to the Dodge dealer so they can re-flash the computer to get rid of the fault code and keep it from returning. Let me know if that works or if you need any more help.

  • Where is Brake Controller Install Harness in 2010 Ram 1500 with 7-Way
    Since your 2010 Ram 1500 has a round 7-way connector at the rear of it that means a brake controller like our best selling Prodigy P3 part # 90195 could easily install with the correct harness, part # 3021-P. The harness is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal. I attached a picture that points out where it will be as well.

  • Troubleshooting Brake Controller that Doesn't Power On
    If your Tekonsha P3 Trailer Brake Controller # 90195 isn't powering on when connected to your vehicle the problem is either that the black wire isn't securely attached to a 12 volt power source or the white wire isn't grounding properly due to a bad ground source chosen or that the wire isn't making good contact. If it isn't grounding to the vehicle battery I would try that as well. For more information on troubleshooting brake controller installs check out the link I attached.
