Install your electric trailer brake controller quickly and easily with this custom wiring adapter. Simply plug one end of the adapter into your brake controller and then plug the other end into the built-in port in your vehicle.


Features:

  • Plug-in wiring adapter allows for quick, simple installation of your electric trailer brake controller
  • No cutting or splicing required
    • Custom connector end plugs into the built-in port in your vehicle
    • Other end plugs into the back of your electric brake controller
  • Compatible with time-delayed and proportional brake controllers from TrailerMate, Draw-Tite, and Tekonsha
    • Brake controller must have built-in plug for adapter to connect - will not work on controllers with pigtail wiring harnesses
  • 1-Year limited warranty


Note: To illuminate your vehicle and trailer brake lights when you activate the manual override on your brake controller, use this adapter in conjunction with the Tekonsha brake controller converter with 7-way adapter (30235-P - sold separately). Required for use in the state of California.


Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

This adapter plugs into the 5-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 cutting or splicing of wires to install. It is designed to plug directly into your electric brake controller for the simplest installation possible. Because there is no hardwiring, installation is not permanent. You can unplug and remove your brake controller at any time and securely stow it away.

This was long enough to route across from the emergency brake to the center console. Grounded white wire to a bolt under the dash with a 10mm nut. Easy

After 1 year of flawless use I am very pleased with this wiring harness for my 2016 Toyota 4Runner. The installation was super simple and easy; plug and play. I would definitely purchase again for another vehicle.

Everything I have ever ordered from etrailer is top notch and their customer service is as good as it gets. I had delivery problems with the post office and an actual person from etrailer tracked the package and got the hiccup worked out. Can’t say enough good things about them.

Plug and play! I've had the same brake controller on several vehicles...get the correct harnest for your vehicle and easy peezy! Advice: Plan on how you're going to route your wire harnest first before mounting brackets.

Good unit, reliable. Display is hard to read and the form factor and mounting location results in a banged Knee from time to time. A longer wire harness would be good enabling a center console mount.

I haven't installed anything from my order just yet so i can't comment on the products just yet. I'm sure that these, like the others I've purchased over the years will do the job as advertised. This isn't my first time dealing with etrailer, so I'm not at all concerned with the job before me. Very few companies I've dealt with are as capable and competent as etrailer. Their customer service is second to none. Every employee I've spoken with has been well versed in the products as well as their uses and their installation. I highly recommend. Love these folks.

The wiring for the Tekonsha proportional brake control fit my 2016 4 Runner perfectly. Plus the videos that etrailer has showing where the plug in is under the dash made finding it a cinch. Thank you so much etrailer- Anthony, one of their staff even sent me the links for the wiring and the brake controller videos so I wouldn't have to hunt for them. Amazing staff- very helpful. Thank you so much.

Thanks for asking. It means a lot that your company cares about products and service. Ive been very impressed with your company and the information that you provide. The brake controller works very well and is a very good product. Ive been very pleased with it. We went on a long trip from South Carolina to Montana. On the way we stopped by Mount Rushmore. Were going up a steep grade almost 10. Coming down it was nice that I could adjust the controller For more brake power. Thank you so much

Purchased Brake Controller and Wiring adapter. It was just as easy (or even easier) an installation than described. Dealer wanted about $150 to "wire" my brake installer. I noticed this product on-line and read reviews and decided to see if it really was what it said. It took my son around 10-15 minutes to get it mounted and ground. When plugged into trailer, it worked!! When contacting Customer Service, I was very impressed.

  • Does 2020 Toyota 4Runner With 7-Way Need Brake Controller to Power Trailer Brakes
    There will be no default power going to your trailer's brakes without a brake controller on your 2020 Toyota 4Runner with the factory 7-way.

  • Solution for Trailer Brake Controller Causing ABS Error Message on 2015 Toyota 4Runner
    The issue you described when using a brake controller isn't too uncommon on certain late model Toyota vehicles like your 2015 4Runner. These particular vehicles are more sensitive to the controller's red wire backfeeding to the stop light switch, which is what triggers the ABS error message. The only way to prevent this is to use the a diode with the harness and the Pigtail Harness # 7865 that you mentioned offers a perfect solution as it features a diode on the red wire. The Plug-In...

This is on a '17 4Runner but the grounding point will be the same for your 2019 Toyota 4Runner, under the dash. If you go to about the 3:45 mark of the video you can see this taking place, and you will be using the adapter's self-tapping screw.

  • Where To Attach Ground Strap of Brake Controller Install Harness # 3041-P
    The grounds on many Toyota vehicles including your 2014 Toyota 4Runner has proven to be insufficient so an additional ground wire has been added to help when installing the # 3041-P. There is likely an existing ground location under the dash you can use or a bare metal surface that would be perfect for a ground. The firewall is one option. Just as long as it isn't a painted or coated surface and just bare metal it will work.
