  • Plugs into Brake Controller
  • Vehicle Specific

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.

  • Where to Ground Brake Controller Wiring Adapter 3041-P in 2019 Toyota 4Runner
    I have added a photo from the linked installation video of a brake controller install on a 4Runner that shows where you can ground the Tekonsha Custom Wiring Adapter for Trailer Brake Controllers # 3041-P. 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.

  • 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...

    Since your 2016 Toyota 4Runner has a factory 7-way there is a brake controller connector port by the emergency brake pedal. If you check out the picture I attached you can see where the connector is located. The part # 3041-P is the connector that would plug right into it.

  • Why is there a Second Ground Wire in Brake Control Wiring Harness # 3041-P for 2017 Toyota 4Runner
    The grounds on many Toyota vehicles including your 2017 Toyota 4Runner has proven to be insufficient so an additional ground wire has been added to help. 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.

  • Brake Control Wiring Adapter for Installing Tekonsha Primus Brake Controller in 2016 Toyota 4Runner
    The # 3041-P isn't included with the Tekonsha # TK90160 Primus brake controller, it's sold separately. One end of the # 3041-P would plug into the rear of the controller, the other end would plug into the brake controller connector located above and to the left of the emergency brake pedal. There is a ground wire with a ring terminal that needs to be grounded to metal under the dash, but there will be no cutting or splicing required.

    It's my understanding that your 2020 Toyota 4Runner should have come with a connector already installed up and behind the emergency brake pedal.

The Curt Triflex part # C51140 isn't a bad controller but it's just not quite the same. One aspect is the mounting flexibility is much more limited for the Curt. The Prodigies allow for 360 degrees of mounting rotation as long as the controller faces the rear, but the Curt has a much smaller range. We find too that the Curt controllers...

  • Why Does the Factory Brake Controller Wiring Harness for a Toyota 4Runner Have Five Wires
