Tekonsha Accessories and Parts - 3045-S

Streamline the installation of your trailer brake controller with this custom adapter. Simply connect the wires of the harness to your brake controller and then plug the other end into the built-in port beneath your vehicle's dash.


Features:

  • Pigtail wiring adapter eases installation of your electric trailer brake controller
  • Connector end plugs into the built-in port beneath the dash of your vehicle
  • Wire end connects to the wires on your brake controller with the included butt connectors
    • Compatible with time-delayed and proportional brake controllers from TrailerMate, Draw-Tite, and Tekonsha
  • Limited 1-year warranty


Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

To install your electric brake controller, you need to connect the wiring of the controller to your vehicle. Certain auto manufacturers offer pre-wired options, typically known as tow packages, wherein wiring is run for you from the dash to the trailer connector on the back of your vehicle. When this is done, a port is installed at your dash so that you can easily plug in a brake controller.


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 hook this adapter up to your trailer brake controller, just connect the 4 wires of the harness - ground, power, brake switch, and brake power - to the corresponding wires on the brake controller. If your brake controller came with a plug built into its wiring harness, you will have to cut off the plug and connect to the wires themselves.

Video Transcript for Tekonsha Brake Controller 3045-S Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Tekonsha Custom Wiring Adapter for Trailer Brake Controllers. This adapter is going to fit certain years and models of the Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee. The pigtail wire and adapter is designed to ease the installation of the electric trailer brake controller. The adapter itself is going to measure about 30 inches long. You're going to have the connector end on this side. This is going to plug into the built-in port beneath the dash of your vehicle. It's going to be a perfect fit.

This is a vehicle-specific application, so it's a custom-fit product. Then, the wire end is going to connect to the wires on your brake controller with the included butt connectors. The butt connectors are very easy to use. It's going to come with 2 different sizes to accommodate the different size wiring. Place one end of the wire inside the butt connector. Place the other end of the wire on the other side.

Crimp the middle down and that's going to complete the connection between the two wires that you're wanting to connect together. The adapter is compatible with time-delayed and proportional brake controllers from TrailerMate, DrawTite, and Tekonsha. It's also going to feature a nice protective mesh that's going to be covering the wires. It's going to keep them close together and prevent loose wires from hanging down around your feet. The adapter end is going to plug into the 4-pin connector on your vehicle's built-in brake control wiring harness. The harness is going to be located beneath the dash to the left of the steering column, and it's going to be taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal.

Once you plug those in, they're going to snap into one another for a nice tight, secure fit. Then, to hook this adapter up to your trailer brake controller, you're going to connect the 4 wires of the harness to the corresponding wires of the brake controller. It's going to provide your ground, power, brake switch, and brake power functions. If your brake controller came with a plug built into its wiring harness, all you have to do is cut the plug off, expose the wire ends, and connect them together using the included butt connectors. It's going to come with some detailed instructions. Those are going to walk you through the installation process step by step. That's going to do it for our review of the Tekonsha Custom Wiring Adapter for Trailer Brake Controllers..

  • Best Trailer Brake Controller Recommendation for Vehicle with Knee Air Bags like Grand Cherokee
  • For vehicles with lower knee area air bags the best brake controller solution is the Redarc Tow Pro Elite part # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 as it does not install like a traditional brake controller which prevents air bag issues. The brain of the controller mounts out of sight and then you install a small knob on an interior panel where convenient like in the picture I attached. The correct harness for this controller to install in your 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee would then be the part # 3045-S. I...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for 2015 Dodge Durango that Doesn't Interfere with Knee Air Bag
  • For your 2015 Dodge Durango the Prodigy P3 part # 90195 is a fantastic brake controller, but for applications like yours where the area you'd normally install a brake controller has an air bag we have a better option that allows you to install the controller without needing to install anything in the air bag area. For that you'd want the Redarc Tow Pro Elite part # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 with the install harness part # 3045-S and you'd be set. With this controller all you have to have installed...
