Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

This adapter plugs into the 6-pin connector on your vehicle's built-in brake control wiring harness. Older models will have the harness located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal. Newer models have the harness under the dash, above the gas 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.

Video Transcript for Tekonsha Brake Controller 3050-P Review

Today, we're going to review Part Number 3050-P. This is the Tekonsha Plug In Wiring Adapter for Draw Tite and Tekonsha Electric Brake Controllers. This part is a custom fit part number. It is designed to fit the Infiniti SUVs, Nissan trucks and SUVs, both starting in 2004. It does fit quite a few different vehicles. What I would recommend is go to our website, use our fit guide, put in your year, model vehicle, and it will show you if this will work for your application. This wiring adapter will help ease your installation of electric brake controller.

On this end right here, this is the custom connector. This will usually plug into a built in brake controller port beneath the dash of your vehicle. The other end right here, the black portion that's flat, this will plug into the back of your electric brake controller. This adapter is compatible with time delay brake controllers by Draw Tite and by proportional brake controllers from Tekonsha Electrical Prodigy, Prodigy P2, Prodigy P3, Primus IQ and the Voyager. Basically, when you go to install it, I've got an example here. Here's Prodigy P3 Brake Controller, we do sell this on our website, separately.

If you look at the back there's the plug in. You take the black plug in, push it in, and you can see that it pops right into place, locks in there. On the other end, you have your white custom connector. In this, you just locate your brake controller port on your vehicle, plug this right into this and you're ready to go. When you want to take out your brake controller, you can just pop off, just like that. Remove your wiring harness and you can remove the brake controller.

That should do it for the review on Part Number 3050-P. This is the Tekonsha Plug In Wiring Adapter for the Draw Tite and the Tekonsha Electric Brake Controllers. .

Kind of ironic that the controller mfg doesn't have these but etrailer does! Plenty of wire length for routing. I especially like the braiding around the wires. It keeps them together and keeps them from chafing. Connectors match perfectly in form, function and color. The hardest time I had was finding a mounting location for the Controller on my 2018 Nissan Titan. That, and laying on my back in the floor of the truck! LOL The installation instructions on etrailer was a big help in finding the connector on the truck. My connector (on the truck) didn't say it was for the controller but it wasn't attached to anything and the pin-outs and connector matched. I haven't pulled my trailer yet, just installed it a few hours ago but the Controller lights up like it should so everything should be good. Oh, I can't complain about the price either. I think I paid a very fair price to the wiring harness. 571022

I ordered this with the # 90195 Tekonsha P3 Trailer Brake Controller. This adaptor is perfect, no cutting into wires or using wire taps, just plug and play, that's the way I like doing things looks more like factory install. worked out great for me on my Nissan 2017 Titan. way to go 575476

Rapid plug and play assembly. It took me less than 30 minutes to install this harness and a P3 brake controller in my 2012 Frontier Pro4X. Beware that, as many have written, the blue (brake control) and black (12 volt feed) wires are incorrect on the factory truck harness and may need to be cut and spliced in the newly added trailer wiring harness to work correctly. I picked up my new camper the next day, plugged it in and couldn't move. The trailer brakes were locked on, that is until I pulled the cord. I left the dealership without the trailer plugged in to the truck and pulled to the side immediately out of the driveway. 5 minutes at the side of the road with a wire stripper and electrical tape and everything worked PERFECTLY. I had come prepared based on the reviews others had left. Great product and service from etrailer.com. I will be back to outfit my next truck. 426581

The brake control harness I purchased from etrailer was exactly what I need and was very easy to install; especially with their product video showing step-by-step installation process. The harness works great with my Tekonsha Primus IQ brake control for my 2011 Nissan Frontier. Great product, great process and delivery came in less than a week. 99941

2015 Nissan Xterra

It was easy to use this short wiring harness to connect a Tekonsha Prodigy P3 brake controller to the factory installed under-dash connector on our new 2015 Xterra. ALL 2015 Xterras have that under-dash connector, regardless of trim level or model. Previous years may also, just look for the white 6-conductor connector that is taped to a wire bundle under the dash above the right side of the driver footwell (see my photo). The cable was just the right length to make the connection to the brake controller mounted to the plastic panel just up from the hood release tab (see the other photo). Because the brackets supplied with the controller would have placed the controller about an inch from the dash surface, creating a knee-banger situation, I instead use some industrial quality 3M dual-lock fastener (like velcro on steroids) to mount the controller. The controller is securely mounted right up against the dash panel, but is still is removable, if needed. If you also need a rear 7-way connector harness and the relays that all plug into the factory installed connectors, I highly recommend #118266. It provides everything you will need except for the bracket to mount the 7-way connector to the bottom lip of the rear bumper, see #TM76474. 233600

Very easy to install, less than 10 minutes. Adjustable break settings will make pulling my trailer much safer. If it's the heavier utility tractor or lighter yard waste or furniture. 422647

2008 Nissan Titan

I purchased the 3050-P quick connect wire harness for the ease of installation. My 2008 Nissan Titan has the big tow package and I needed an electric brake system. All I had to do was remove two phillips head screws and the lower dash panel pulls off. Locate the factory brake harness which is taped up at the emergency brake and attach the two together. I routed the harness to the right side of the lower dash because I'm right handed but, there is enough wire to move it to other areas within reason. I also purchased the pod Pro Series 80500 which serves 1 or 2 axel brake systems. I mounted it to my lower dash on the right side within reach and it plugs right into the wire harness. I have not had chance to use the new system yet but, am confident that etrailer has sold me a system that will work for me. 388663

I had a little difficulty making sure that this was the correct adapter for my 2017 Nissan Armada, but it is. They are the same connector as 2015. I also had trouble locating the factory pre-wiring and tgere was nothing in my Nissan owners manual that I could find. If you have a 2017 Armada the pre-wiring is on the right side of the steering column, above the accelerator (see pic). From what I understand, on the previous generation vehicles, the pre-wiring was on the left side near the e-brake. As far as the product itself, it works, fit properly, and the wiring is solid. 336331

Now after reading at least 50 reviews which were mostly all bad reviews, I was really skeptical to buy from etrailer. There was some really great reviews also. I decided to give them a chance anyway and ordered a drawtite hitch, wiring harness, and a electronic brake controller. Product came in as promised and nothing damaged. Came with all instructions plus the videos from online. Installation was piece of cake. I didn't know that 4way/7way mounting bracket and adapter harness for brake controller(from vehicle to brake controller) didn't come with the order. I ordered them and etrailer gave me free shipping and arrived really fast. Also customer service experience was good. I recommend etrailer to friends and family! 388978

I traded in my Ford E350 for a new 2017 Nissan 3500 NV and realized that I no longer had a break controller for my van. The dealer didn't have any in stock and didn't offer installs so after a brief search on etrailers I found the right product, which even included the easy to use cable harness connector and I was able to install my new break controller in about 30 mins! 433407

2014 Nissan Xterra

I recently purchased the Tekonsha P3 brake controller for my 2014 Nissan Xterra. This controller is top of the line, so it didn't bother me spending the extra money. However the price is still acceptable. I researched installation instructions and videos prior to receiving the product. You don't have to, it's just my preference. The installation of my controller took me approximately 5 minutes from start to finish and looks very high quality. It's extremely easy, anyone could do it. I'm very pleased with my purchase and experience with etrailer.com. I would recommend them to anyone. Thank you, Keith S. 218816

Per the 2015 Nissan Armada all that was needed was to remove two screws to remove the panel (drivers side) and there to see is the Tow Package Harness Plug (1) and attached to it is the Access Electrical Harness Tag plug as indicated in Nissan Manual. Peel the tape to remove the plug which is attached to main harness. You have about 3 to 4 inches to play with so that you can connect the plug (1) to the plug (2) of 3050-P. Very easy to perform the connectivity procedure. Once all the connections are made you are ready to connect your vehicle to your trailer, Mine is a Wild Wood 25 Ft. bumper pull TV Trailer. In my case the Tekshonsha Prodigy P2 Controller with easy to explain instructions. I bought the 3050-P from etrailer. They are very prompt and professional, polite, helpful and they will do to make sure that you will get the correct product, I highly recommend them. 634562

Easy plug and play... my only complaint is the colored wire exposure when hooked up to the controller. it would be fine if my controllers were installed horizontal. But they are not. they are installed almost vertical on the dash, which allows this wire adapter to be exposed where it connects to the back of the controller. And all you see is colored wires : - ( 605767

It was easily removed by removing two screws in both sides on bottom corners. And popping the panel off. It was next to several relays. Product plugged directly into my prodigy 2 workig great. Thx for prompt delivery. 557781

  • Recommended Brake Controller for 2018 Nissan Titan With Factory 7-Way
  • For your 2018 Nissan Titan I very strongly recommend going with the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 over the Curt Spectrum # C51170, which does use Wiring Adapter # C51382 to connect to your 2018 Nissan Titan. The Redarc Tow-Pro # 331-EBRH-ACCV2, which you can install in your '18 Titan with Wiring Adapter # 3050-S, is by far the superior option because it is not only extremely effective and responsive but its manual control knob makes it simple to use; the Tow-Pro can also be mounted...

You will need a 7-way harness to plug the trailer into. I recommend part # N40975. This plugs into the factory plug located behind the rear bumper. This will give you a working 4-way and 7-way connector. This kit also includes the required relays for the harness. You will also need a brake controller for your Titan. I recommend...

  • How Many Wires Are Used On A 2016 Nissan NV 3500 Brake Controller
  • On the product page, the first set of images are of the actual product itself. For part # 3050-P, there are 4 wires coming from the pigtail on the factory harness and 4 wires running to the brake controller. Although there maybe 6 wires coming from the factory brake controller pigtail, only 4 of those are needed for the installation.

  • Trailer Hitch Receiver and Wiring Harness for a 2017 Nissan Titan with No Tow Package
  • Even though your 2017 Nissan Titan doesn't have the tow package it should still have the standard round connector to install trailer wiring behind the rear bumper. Part # N40975 includes the 7-way and 4-way connector that plugs right into your truck, as well as the relays to installto activate the wiring. I've linked a video that shows the install on a 2010 Titan for you. The process is the same. With a trailer that large it's likely to hve brakes so you need a brake controller. ...

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.

The # 3050-P adapter is confirmed to fit the 2016 Titans but not the 2017 as of yet because it hasn't been tested. There wasn't a lot of changes for 2017 so there's a good chance it will work.

  • 2017 Nissan Titan Electric Brake Controller Plug Location
  • For your 2017 Nissan Titan, the models with the factory 7-way will have the harness under the dash, above the gas pedal. This is a different location from the older models that were found near the emergency brake pedal. If you don't have the harness or controller yet, I recommend the wiring harness # 3050-P and the Prodigy P3 Controller # 90195. At your 7-way the brake controller output is found at the 5 o'clock pin location.

  • Brake Controller Install Harness Location and Recommendation for 2017 Nissan Armada
  • If your 2017 Nissan Armada came with a factory 7-way at the rear of the vehicle you can use an install harness like part # 3050-P to install a Tekonsha controller like the P2 part # 90885. I attached a picture that shows where you'll find the port above the accelerator. If you do not have a 7-way you'll need the part # N40975 to install one.

  • Parts Needed to Install 7-Way and Brake Controller in 2017 Nissan Pathfinder
  • If your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder does not have trailer wiring already what you need is the 7-way kit part # 118273 which comes with everything needed to install a fully functional 7-way. See install video. Now for an install harness for the brake controller all you need is the part # 3050-P. 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...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for 2011 Nissan Frontier
  • The total weight of the trailer and SxS that you mentioned is less than the total trailer capacity for your Nissan so you'd be fine based on that. You would want a brake controller to allow you to activate the brakes of the trailer so that you can stop safely. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P3 Brake Controller part # 90195. 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...

  • Parts Needed to Install 7-Way on 2011 Nissan Pathfinder
  • If your trailer does not have brakes your best and easiest route would be to use the adapter part # 37185. Your 4-way plugs into it's 4-way and you have both a 4-way and 7-way with just taillight functions. If you need trailer brakes you'll need quite a few more things. To star you'd need the part # 118281 for a 7-way. But you'd need to swap out the socket to the part # HM40975 as it will install and give you both the 4 and 7-way. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy...

  • Brake Controller for 2017 Nissan Armada
  • There is not a factory brake controller on the 2017 Nissan Armada to my knowledge; though your vehicle may have the tow package with the factory 7-way at the rear of the vehicle. If you do have this, you only need the brake controller and wiring adapter; if you do NOT have the factory 7-way you will need to add Factory Style 7-Way and 4-Way Flat Vehicle End Trailer Connector # N40975. As for the brake controller itself, I strongly recommend the Prodigy P3 # 90195 which you would...

  • How to Determine if 2011 Nissan Frontier Has Tow Package for Brake Controller Install
  • Look at the rear of your 2011 Nissan Frontier. If you see a round trailer connector like what you see in the attached picture then you have the tow package. That means that you only need the part # 3050-P to install the Prodigy P3 part # 90195. If you do not have the tow package you will also need to install the part # 118266 to give you the 7-way.

  • Should I Get a Proportional or Time-Delayed Brake Controller
  • The best brake controller option to go with is one that activates the brakes proportionally instead of time delayed. A proportional brake controller will activate the trailer brakes at the same time and with the same intensity as the tow vehicle brakes whereas a time delayed brake controller will activate the brakes at a predetermined time and intensity once the brake pedal is pressed in the tow vehicle. This can cause uneven wear of the brakes and tires. Proportional brake controllers...

  • Location of Brake Controller Install Plug on a 2017 Nissan Armada
  • Since you have a 2017 Armada the pre-wiring is on the right side of the steering column, above the accelerator (see pic). This is where you'll plug the part # 3050-P into for the Prodigy P3 part # 90195.

  • Brake Controller Installation in 2005 Nissan Titan Without Factory Tow Package
  • On some of the Nissan Titans (primarily the XE versions) the factory brake controller plug, if present, does not have the 4 pins to match up with the adapter plug # 3050-P. In such cases it is necessary to splice together the vehicle wiring to the adapter. When there is no brake controller connection port under the dash you will just do a hardwired installation for your controller. For this we recommend using our # ETBC7 brake controller install kit along with a 4-pole harness. If the...

  • Brake Controller and Weight Distribution Hitch for 2017 Nissan Frontier
  • Let's start with a brake controller, and with a 2017 Nissan Frontier, you're right about it needing only to be plugged in. I highly recommend the Prodigy P3 # 90195, which is a proportional controller, meaning it acts immediately as you use your Frontier's brakes. The P3 has customizable settings, safeguards to prevent battery drain and shorts, as well as an LCD display. It will plug right into the plug you mentioned just by using adapter # 3050-P. In order to choose the best weight...

  • Trailer Hitch and Wiring Recommendation for 2017 Nissan Titan
  • For your 2017 Nissan Titan the Curt hitch part # C13304 is a confirmed fit and has an 8,000 lb towing and 800 lb tongue weight capacity. This would work well for you. You'll need a brake controller, the install harness, and a 7-way part # N40975 and you'll be set. The # N40975 comes with the relays needed to activate the 7-way as well. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P3 Brake Controller part # 90195. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well...

  • Brake Controller Harness Location For 2017 Nissan Pathfinder
  • If you have a factory 7-way on your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder, the P2 brake controller # 90885 can easily be installed with the vehicle specific wiring adapter # 3050-P; no other parts are necessary. At this time we don't have a picture available to show the plug in location on the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder. The # 3050-P that you used on your Frontier is the same that fits the new Pathfinder because they both use the same harness. I have a video linked of the 2013 Pathfinder that shows the...

  • Brakes On Trailer Lock Up when Connected to a 2006 Nissan Xterra
  • I know exactly what the problem is. There were some Nissan vehicles in which the tow package wiring, that you plug into to install a 7-Way, has the electric brake output and the 12 volt circuits switched. So when you plug in your trailer the brakes are getting a constant 12 volts. But not to worry. We have a help article, linked below, that explains how you can easily fix this problem! If you haven't chosen a brake controller yet I recommend the P2 # 90885 because it is easy to set...
