Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

Brake-Control Adapter Port

This adapter plugs into the 6-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.

Overall, I'm happy. Found several great video tutorials to help with the install, although getting through the firewall was insanely hard - much harder than the videos led me to believe. The kits didn't come with wiring to connect the 7-pin connector to the reverse light, so I had to go out and get some supplies. But I'd definitely recommend to a friend. 847977

Wrong connectors for my 2018 Traverse as it had pigtail leads under the door sill plate. 569308


Comments
The 2018 Chevy Traverse is a split model year. There is a 2018 Traverse, which is the first year of the new generation vehicle, and theres a 2018 Traverse Limited, which is mechanically identical to the 2017 model. The Traverse Limited uses the # 3026-P wiring harness, but the 2018 model will not have the plug under the dash. There are blunt cut wires behind the kick panel to the left of the drivers left foot. The controller pigtail would wire directly to these wires as follows: Red/Blue striped tow package wire to black wire on controller. Black tow package wire to white wire on controller. White and blue striped tow package wire to red controller wire and blue tow package wire to the blue controller wire.

  • Installing an Electric Brake Controller in a 2018 Chevrolet Traverse with a Factory 7-Way Connector
    The Electric Brake Controller Adapter, part # 3026-P, is confirmed to fit the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse Limited. If you have a Limited model you should have the connector underneath your dashboard. Since you don't have the connector under your dash instead of using the # 3026-P adapter you need our # 5506 wiring kit to install the Prodigy P3, part # 90195. The wiring kit includes everything to power a brake controller. I've linked a video from when we installed our # ETBC7 kit on...

  • Brake Controller Plug-In Connector Location on a 2017 GMC Acadia Denali with OEM 7-Way
    Did you remove the panel under your driver's side dash? The plug for the adapter # 3026-P should be located there, taped to another harness to the left of the steering column (see attached photo). This exists if your 2017 GMC Acadia Denali has a factory 7-Way connector at the rear. The plug-in adapter that I referenced will allow you to install a brake controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195 without hardwiring anything. If you do not have a factory 7-Way then you need a 4-Way...

  • Is there a Plug and Play Harness to Install a Brake Controller on a 2019 Chevy Traverse
    We know that the 2017 Chevy Traverse with factory 7-Way trailer connector had a plug-in location for a brake controller but nothing is shown for the 2019 Traverse. I would check under the dash, to the left of the steering column, for that wire bundle mentioned in your manual. It is likely held together with a white tag (that is traditionally how GM has handled the wire bundles). If the wire bundle is present the tag should list the functions of the wires.

The last Acadia to use the Adapter # 3026-P that you referenced was the 2017 Limited which was the same as the 2016 model year. The 2017 New Body and newer have the blunt cut wires up under the dash.

  • Troubleshooting Brake Controller of 2018 GMC Adacia Not Working with Brake Pedal
    So the red wire of your brake controller needs to be connected to a circuit of your 2018 GMC Acadia that sees voltage only when the brakes are applied. If you used a custom install harness on your Acadia like the # 3026-P to install the controller then most likely you have a blown third brake light fuse since that's connected to the stoplight circuit for the brake controller. If the controller was hardwired to a stoplight circuit you most likely need to check the condition of the connection...
