Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

Junction BoxBrake-Control Adapter Port

This adapter plugs into the port that is built into the electric junction box beneath your vehicle's dash. The black box is located to the left of the steering column, just above the carpet. To plug in the adapter, first remove the cover on the box. The adapter plugs into the second slot from the left, on the top row.


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 3025-P Review

Today we're going to review part number 3025-P, this is the Tekonsha plug-in wiring adapter for Draw-Tight and Tekonsha electric brake controllers. Now this part number is a custom fit part number, it is designed to fit the Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC vehicles starting in 1999, it does fit a wide range of vehicles so what I would recommend is to go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year and model of vehicle, and it'll tell you it this part will work for your application. Now this wiring adapter will ease the installation of your electric brake controller. One on end, right here, you can see it's a custom connector. This is designed to plug into your factory brake controller connector that's usually beneath the dash of your vehicle. The other end right here, this will plug into the back of your electric brake controller. This wiring adapter is compatible with time-delay brake controllers by Draw-Tite, and it's compatible with proportional brake controllers by Tekonsha, like the Prodigy, Prodigy P2, Prodigy P3, Primus IQ and the Voyager. Basically the way this would install, here's an example I have a Prodigy P3 right here. You can see the very back has the plug-in, so just take your plug-in, push it in, you can see it snaps and locks into place, and then your other end has the custom connector on it.

This you would just locate your factory brake controller port on your vehicle, it's usually under the dash, plug it in, and then you're all ready to go. And then when you just want to remove your break controller, just lift up on your bracket, and then you pull it out. And then it's easily removed. That should do it, for review on part number 3025-P, the Tekonsha plug-in wiring adapter, for Draw-Tite and Tekonsha electric brake controllers. .

Bought a new Primus IQ brake controller but it only came with a pigtail wiring that had to be spliced into my '01 Suburban. Ordered the direct fit wiring pigtail from etrailer.com and couldn't be more pleased! It literally took me less than 10 minutes to plug in the wiring and mount the brake controller. Excellent customer service and very fast shipping! The kind of shopping experience that causes repeat business. Thank you etrailer.com and customer rep Lexus for making everything so simple! 203301

etrailer's instructions and videos are awesome. installation was a breeze UNTIL I needed to locate the brake signal wire (cold side of brake switch) on my 1999 suburban. What a pain. the switch is not very accessible let alone there are a ton of white wires under the dash --along with an alarm. Long story short, I found this in a GMC forum and it saved me big time: "Under the dash, next to the emergency brake is a black convenience box. At the bottom of the box is the letters GRN, next to that is the letters NAT with a small recessed box with two male spade connectors. The spade on the right goes to the brake switch. The wire from the brake controller is terminated there." Using the supplied probe tester I was able to verify this and finished up my installation. The Tekonsha Prodigy P3 controller works great. 112192

The Tekonsha Prodigy P3 controller is still working great. I cant believe i didnt get one sooner. Easy to adjust on the fly and no issues at all.

Hello I hooked it up and it will not power up, any suggestions? 588610


Comments

If your 2002 GMC Sierra does not have a factory towing connector you will need to finish the wiring for a 7-way plug at the rear of the vehicle. If you have a bundle of wires at the rear of the vehicle you will need part # PK11898
Pollak 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector Socket w/ Wiring Harness and Mounting Bracket
$31.95
. If you have a plug at the rear of the vehicle with a cap you will need part # 30955
Replacement Custom Multi-Tow 7-Way and 4-Way Trailer Connectors
$39.67
instead of the PK11898. If your 7-way plug is already wired in and you still do not have power you probably need to activate your towing package by connecting two power feeds to your fuse box. These two power feeds are located under the hood and they will need to be connected to two posts in front of the battery. The first power feed is located on the wiring harness that runs below the brake master cylinder and booster that will need to be connected the post on the battery. You can locate the next power feed in a wiring pigtail between the fuse box and the inner fender well on the drivers side that will need to be connected to the post on the battery. I have attached a video please skip the brake controller installation until you get to 3 minutes 45 seconds in the video.

1 year to the month, my Tekonsha controller has been flawless. got into a much heavier crosswind once that the Suburban could handle, and reached down to the controller and hit the Trailer Brakes..... worked like a charm, straightened us out immediately. I really like the variable power feature, I can change it depending on conditions as to how much trailer brake is needed for just creeping along..... my old controller was a "set it once" and that is it.... so the trailer always hit hard first. not this one, it is extremely good at sensing how much brake the trailer needs. 581279

Makes installation a snap to wire up. Also makes it convenient you can use between other vehicles pretty much makes it a plug and play. I have 3 of them in our vehicles and there all the same set up. So if one did go down i can take one and swap it out with another one. Just need another mounting bracket and you can have 1 controller for 2 vehicles. 544434

Comments

The 3025-P is a fit for 1999-2002 Chevy Silverado/GMC Sierra. For a 2006 model, youll want to use the 3015-P. As you found, moving the brake output circuit wire will make the 3025-P work on your vehicle.

Installation was a breeze thanks to the wiring adapter that was fit exactly to my truck. This unit works great. It has settings for multiple trailers. There is no off button. It goes into a sleep mode after about 15 minutes. The drain on the battery is insignificant. I recommend disconnecting it though, if you are not driving your vehicle every day. As always, etrailer was super easy to deal with. I ordered this at about 7PM CST and it was ready for shipment that night. They are my go-to company for anything I need for my boat trailer and RV. 474167

  • How to Install a Brake Controller on a 2002 Chevy Avalanche
  • To install a brake controller, like the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195, on your 2002 Chevrolet Avalanche you will simply need the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter # 3025-P. The adapter will connect to a port that is in the electric junction box which is beneath your driver side dash (see attached pictures). If you do not have a brake controller already I highly recommend the P3 due to how easy it is to install and use. You will also need to install the Hopkins Replacement Custom Multi-Tow...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for 1999 Chevy Silverado
  • The correct brake controller harness for your 1999 Chevy Silverado is the part # 3025-P. Which for an economically priced brake controller that will still work great the best option is the Tekonsha Voyager part # 39510 as it is a proportional controller. Proportional means that it can sense the amount of braking your truck will be doing and will apply the same intensity to the trailer's brakes.

  • Installing a 7-way Trailer Connector for an Electric Brake Controller on a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado
  • The wires for a 7-way connector should be under the rear of your 2001 Chevrolet Silverado already. Use a circuit tester, like # 40376, and test the wires for their function. Then you can install a 7-way like # PK11898. Or if you wish to keep the 4-way and add a 7-way use # 37185. Then you can install an electric brake controller like the Prodigy P3 # 90195 using the wiring adapter # 3025-P.

Very close to what you have but you'll want to double check like you mentioned. If these bearings are correct the hub and drum assembly for your trailer is # AKHD-545-35-K. If they're not...

  • A factory 6-Way is certainly not all that common but it will have a brake output circuit and plugging in a brake controller will work. But there may be some connections that you will need to make under the hood to make everything fully functional. I have included a link to our FAQ article that covers the under hood connections that you will need to perform if they are not completed already. Please note that on a 6-Way trailer connector there are 2 ways that it could be wired. The center...

  • Trailer Brake Controller Wiring Harness for a 2001 Chevy Suburban 2500
  • If your 2001 Chevy Suburban 2500 came with a factory installed 7-Way trailer connector then you can use brake controller wiring harness # 3025-P with the P2 controller # 90885. There may be some additional connections you will need to make under the hood to make everything fully functional. I have included a link to an FAQ article that will help. If your Suburban did not come with the factory 7-Way you will need to add one using # 30955. The connector to plug this 7-Way into is located...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for 2000 Chevy Silverado
  • For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup. This is a proportional brake controller that senses the amount of braking the tow vehicle is applying and applies a proportionate amount to the trailer brakes. This will be the last brake controller you buy. It can easily be transferred to future vehicles as well. To install it in your 2000 Chevy Silverado...

  • Should Red Wire for Primus IQ Brake Controller Always be Hot
  • You definitely did find the culprit! The red wire should only get hot when your brake pedal is pressed. This tells the Primus IQ # TK90160 that you are stepping on the pedal so that the controller, in turn, will activate the brakes on your trailer. Check for any places where that wire is damaged and try to repair it as that would be the problem. If you can't find any places where it looks damaged then you may need to use something like the Pacer Performance 3rd Brake Light Logic Module...

  • Wiring a 2003 Chevrolet Kodiak C-5500 for a Brake Controller with Factory Style Wiring Harness
  • When wiring the red brake switch wire on the brake controller you should use a circuit tester to determine the wire that goes hot only when the brake pedal is pressed. If you find a wire that has voltage on it before the brake pedal is pressed and then gets brighter when the brake pedal is pressed that is the wrong circuit and should not be used. If your Kodiak has the prewired connector under the dash for the Tekonsha Wire Replacement for GM Vehicles, 2003 - 2006, then this should be...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation/Troubleshooting on 2002 GMC Yukon
  • The Draw-Tite # 5100 Activator and the # 3025-P vehicle specific brake controller wiring adapter would work just fine on your 2002 Yukon. You'd simply unplug the existing controller from the junction box located on the firewall behind the emergency brake pedal. You might want to do some troubleshooting before replacing the controller, to ensure the problem isn't in the vehicle or trailer wiring, and not the brake controller itself. Use a # 40376 circuit tester on the black wire exiting...

  • How to Install a Brake Controller in a 1999 Chevy Silverado
  • To install a brake controller like the Voyager part # 39510 that you referenced in a 1999 Chevy Silverado all you would need is the correct wiring harness. That would be the part # 3025-P. This will plug into the harness of the # 39510 and then plug into the port under the dash of your truck. For more info on this check out the FAQ article I attached to the right. The wire codes you listed are the standard wire colors for Chevy vehicles so if you need to wire a controller to them...

  • Brake Controller that Will Work with Electric and Electric Over Hydraulic Trailer Brakes
  • If the trailer with hydraulic brakes uses a surge coupler (the coupler pushes in when the vehicle slows to send fluid back to the trailer brakes) then you can use any brake controller you want. But if the trailer with hydraulic brakes has an electric over hydraulic brake actuator then you will need a compatible brake controller. There are a couple of controllers I normally recommend for both regular electric brakes and electric over hydraulic brake systems. They are the P2, # 90885,...

  • Brake Controller Not Working with Brake Pedal on a 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • On your 2004 Chevy Silverado 2500 you will need to make sure that the red wire in the connector, # 3015-P, is in the correct place. If you are not using harness # 3015-P then that could be the problem. Make sure the end of your harness that plugs into the truck matches the picture I have included. You can also check the stop light and CHMSL fuses. A blown fuse can cause this issue. I have also included a link to a help article that could help because there are some under hood connections...

  • Ease of Installation of a Weight Distribution System with Sway Control on a Jayco 22FB Trailer
  • Installing a weight distribution system with sway control, like the Reese Strait-Line Weight Distribution systems is not all that difficult. I actually feel that if you installed it yourself you would have a better working knowledge of the system and how to properly set it up and use it, because your trailer weight and the weight behind the rear axle in your tow vehicle may change over time and the system will need adjustment. The proper weight distribution system should be selected...

  • Location of Brake Controller Install Port on 2000 GMC Yukon XL
  • The port for installing the brake controller is located in a junction box behind the emergency brake pedal. Remove the black lid from the junction box, the brake control adapter is plugged into the second slot from the left on the top row. If you need the adapter harness and you're using a Tekonsha brake controller, we offer them as part # 3025-P.
