Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

Brake-Control Adapter Port

This adapter plugs into the connector beneath your vehicle's dashboard. To reach the connector, remove the storage pocket that is built into the center of your dash, just above the ashtray. Once you have removed the pocket, you will see the gray, 4-pin connector that mates with the adaptor.


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.

I can not say enough about how great E trailer and James were to deal with. I had 2 brake controllers fail exactly 1 month after they were installed and this company stood behind their warranty and replaced them both. After the second failure I brought my F350 to my mechanic. He spoke to the tech experts at E trailer and discovered the problem may have been excessive ripple/noise in the output of my alternator. We replaced the alter and E trailer sent a third controller to my mechanic. It has worked flawlessly since that repair. These folks are the best at customer service, I can't express my appreciation enough. I will only use and recommend them in the future. 653911

  • Brake Controller Connector Location on a 2007 Ford F-550
    The brake controller adapter, like part # 3065-P for a Tekonsha brake controller like the P2 # 90885, installs at the connector which is located behind the storage pocket that is built into your center dash right above the ashtray (see attached photos). I have attached the installation details for this adapter which will apply to matter what brand brake controller you have. Please note that in some cases you may need to run additional wiring # 37185 to complete the brake controller circuit....

    A brake controller can be installed on your 2003 Alpine motor home, but you will need to do some hardwiring to get it installed. Since you are ready have a 7-Way trailer connector you will just need a few items to wire in the controller. You will need a certain length of wire # 10-1-1, sold in 1 foot increments. It will need to be long enough to reach from the 7-Way all the way to the cab of the vehicle where the brake controller will be plus another 10 feet or more because extra will...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation to Replace Factory Controller of 2005 Ford F-250
    For a brake controller to replace the integrated controller of your 2005 Ford F-250 I recommend the Prodigy P3 Brake Controller part # 90195. This is one of our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup. 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. This will be the last brake controller you buy as it is incredibly reliable, works,...

  • Where Does a Brake Controller Plug Into on a 2004 Holiday Rambler on a Ford F-53 Chassis
    I believe you are talking about the F-53 chassis. There is a brake controller plug on those chassis. On a 2004 model it is located up under the dash, behind the instrument cluster. Take a look at the picture I have included showing this. For a brake controller I recommend the P2 # 90885 because it is easy to set up and use and it is reliable. The brake controller harness you would need for this controller is # 3035-P.

  • Hardwiring Trailer Brake Controller in 2006 Ford F-250 Without Brake Controller Port
    If your 2006 F-250's behind-the-dash brake controller connector has been removed you can still hardwire a controller by following the steps in the linked articles. All brake controllers use the same 4 wires for connection and thankfully their colors are standardized. The controller's BLACK wire takes in +12V operating power through a circuit breaker; the RED wire takes in the triggering signal from the vehicle brake light switch; the BLUE wire carries the controller output to the trailer...

  • Brake Controller Replace Recommendation for 2006 Ford F-250 with Integrated Brake Controller
    To install a brake controller like the Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller part # 90195 in your 2006 Ford F-350 you will use the wiring harness # 3065-P. The harness will plug it into the factory plug after disconnecting it from the factory controller, and then taking the truck to a dealership to clear the fault code that will appear. I have included a link to a Tech Bulletin that explains what they do at the dealer to clear the fault code.

  • Replacing a Ford Factory Brake Controller with Aftermarket Brake Controller on a 2005 Ford F-250
    The fault code will be displayed on your 2005 F-250 with factory brake controller because the powertrain control module (PCM) is looking for the factory integrated brake controller. Installing a new brake controller will not clear this fault. You will have to take the vehicle to a Ford Dealer and have the PCM flashed so that the computer no longer tries to verify the factory brake controller. This will not disable the wiring for the brake controller but will clear the fault code and keep...

  • Brake Controller installation on a 2006 Ford F-350 Cab and Chassis with Integrated Brake Controller
    I spoke with my contact at Tekonsha and he stated that there are two ways that you can install an aftermarket brake controller in a 2006 Ford F-350 with an integrated brake controller. The first way is to hardwire in the controller. The white wire goes to the negative battery terminal, the black wire to the positive battery terminal via a 20 or 30 amp circuit breaker, # 9506P or # 38360. The red wire connects to the wire on the brake switch that shows a signal on a circuit tester, #...

    If your 2006 Ford F-350 has a factory 7-Way connector at the rear then you would need the adapter # 3065-P to install the Prodigy P3 # 90195 brake controller.

  • Brake Controller Install Harness Recommendation for a 2009 Ford F-53 Chassis Motorhome
    For the 1999-2011 F-53 chassis motorhomes there is a brake controller installation port behind the instrument cluster. We have heard it is fairly difficult to locate, but if you keep digging you should find a grey connector that would work. The correct harness needed to install the P3 brake controller # 90885 would be the part # 3035-P. For more info on this search the internet for the Ford document q-206.

  • Parts Needed for Brake Controller Installation on a 2007 Ford F-550 Cab and Chassis Truck
    Yes, the # 3065-P connector will plug into the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Proportional Brake Controller # 90885. It will just plug into the back of the brake controller and the gray plug that you found and supply power to activate the trailer brakes, once the brake controller is properly mounted and setup. Since your 2007 F-550 is pre-wired with a 7-Way trailer connector from the factory no additional wiring will be needed. I have provided a link to instructions for you to review.

    I agree that you most likely have an issue on the truck side. The voltage at the brake magnets when the vehicle is sitting still and the brake pedal is pressed will only read a small amount with the Ford integrated brake controller on your truck. If you are using the manual slide to activate the trailer brakes you should get somewhere between 12 and 13 volts with the controller set to the maximum setting. If this is the case there may be an issue with the brake controller. The 2005 and...
