Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

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 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 3070-P Review

Today we're going to review part number 3070-P. This is the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for the Draw-Tite and the Tekonsha electric brake controllers. Now this is a custom fit part number. It is designed to fit the 2006 to 2014 Honda Ridgeline with the factory tow package and the 2009 tecurrent 00:00:21 Honda Pilot with the factory tow package. Now this wiring adapter will help ease the installation of your electric brake controller. The one end with the gray connector is a custom connector end which will plug into the built in factor brake controller port that's usually beneath the dash of your vehicle. The other end, the smaller black flat design end, will plug into the back of your electric brake controller.

Now this adapter is compatible with the time-delayed brake controllers by Draw-Tite and also the proportional brake controllers by Tekonsha like the Prodigy, Prodigy P2, Prodigy P3, the Primus IQ and the Voyager. Basically when you go to install this, I've got a sample here of a Tekonsha P3 brake controller. We do sell that separately on our website, part number 90195. If you look at the back you can see where the plug would go in so you just take your plug, push it and it snaps into place, locks into place. Then you just go to your other end where the custom connector is and they you'll just find the location of your factory controller brake port, usually under the dash. Match up the connector, plug it right in and you'd be ready to go.

When you need to remove your brake controller all you need to do is pull up on the tab and it'll release it from the controller. That should do it for the review on part number 3070-P, the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for the Draw-Tite and Tekonsha electric brake controllers. .

The speciality connector is great, plugs right into vehicle's factory set up. the original video is great at explanation the installation and location. The printed instructions would be better with same details, since it skipped the location to complete the connect. But since I remembered watching the video, i was able to locate and complete. No splicing or trying to learn wiring diagrams. 382268

Prompt delivery and easy installation. Ordered Tek. P3 for my 2017 Honda Ridgeline. Make sure you get the Honda harness also, plugs on both ends so no stripping of wires. I literally had this installed in 15 minutes. It took me longer to figure out where I wanted to mount it. I did watch a youtube video prior. I don't pick up my new Casita trailer until April and if there are any issues towing with it then I will update this review. 340508

Wiring harness plugged right in and had plenty of length to give flexability for placement of the brake controller. Has a nice, durable protective cover around the wires to protect from rubbing. I was a Honda technican for 3 years and the quality of the harness rivaled that of OEM. Very impressed! Take this option over splicing and hacking wires in with a generic harness. Can't beat the price either. Awesome! 78264

Hello, as requested I have attached some pics of the brake controller after installation on my 2017 Honda Ridgeline. I have a lease vehicle so I did not want to drill any holes in the vehicle to mount or run wires. So what I did was install the mount bracket upside down and place a strong commercial velcro patch to the brake controller mount and to the tray area that it is sitting on. Then I slipped the wire harness between the crack in the IP and the lower console and tucked it up behind the dash so it could not be seen. The velcro holds the brake controller quite secure. This way I can remove the controller and reuse in my next vehicle without leaving any permanent marks or holes to this one. Anyway , just thought I would share… As far as the controller. I am very happy with its operation and functions. 523633

Very simple to install. Highly recommend this product to everyone. If you have a brake controller, don't forget to put a 20amp fuse in the fusebox for the electric brakes. 200052


Comments

Not all vehicles will need an added fuse, but some will. Best to check to the owners manual andor the vehicle specific instructions that come with the vehicle specific brake controller harnesses we carry.

Just bought a Prodigy 3 and on my first trip with our light weight [email protected] clamshell with electric brakes pulled with a 2016 Honda Pilot...very satisfied. I installed a factory hitch and harness and the cable etrailor provided snapped right in. The trailer is under 2,000 lbs so I opted to bet the boost to zero. So far so good. The only issue is it seems to apply the brakes more firmly when going over rough pavement, otherwise the braking action is very smooth. I didn't want to mount the controller bracket permanently so I bent an angle plate into a U shape and pop riveted it so it would hang in the lower trim panel. 407957

Just bought the Tekonsha Primus IQ and installed it. Haven't used it yet, as I pick up my first travel trailer next week. Product is solid, packaged with ample, clear instructions, wiring and mounting hardware. Lower dash on my Honda Ridgeline slopes steeply so I fashioned an L-bracket from 14 ga. steel bar and secured to side of center stack (see photo). Nice and level. Wiring to my harness was a bear, just because of where my connector was buried; needed the YouTube videos. Price was much lower from etrailer than any RV dealer around here. Arrived in less than a week. Think I made a smart choice. If it works as advertised it will get a fifth star. 375303

I gave this a 4 star just because I haven't been able to hook up the trailer yet. The Primus IQ brake controller light is on so I'm assuming it will be fine. The harness arrived in good time. I was able to hook it up in my 2017 Honda Ridgeline in about 20 minutes. The longest part was finding the connection! It was above and left of the parking brake. A headlamp really helped. It's very tight in there so I could use only one hand and did a lot of it by feel. In the picture you need to follow the red wire to the connection. The brake controller I mounted on the plastic in front of my right knee. 321040

Update - Everything worked fine. We went on several trips with our trailer and no problems at all.

Just what the doctor ordered for the customers Honda Ridgeline. Unbilivably, though the truck was completely wired from under the dash from the factory since it was purchased new with the trailer package, the dealership was oblivious to the fact that a brake controller was needed and were dumbfounded on where to get one, or where the connector was located in order to install it. Found the controler on etrailer.com and the connector location on utube. 228914

We have a Honda Ridgeline and this part plugged into the factory plug that was under the dash by the emergency brake petal switch. It was difficult to get to, but success was achieved. This was needed for our camper trailer. This made it easy, no hard wiring, just ordered the part for the Ridgeline and then plug and go. The brake controller plugged into the other end and now I am a happy camper. It worked, I blew a fuse while installing, must have touched something? No problem though, replaced it and was all was good. 202033

Perfect interface between the controller and the factory wiring. I'd have given it 5 stars if it were a wee bit longer - say 8 more inches. On my 2012 Pilot, I mounted the controller in the bin right below the radio because it just seemed in the way of my legs in the more normal position above the accelerator on the dash. The cable wasn't quite long enough for that and I ended up fabbing my own and put this one in the box for the next time. 434856

Bought towing adaptors/wiring parts for a 2001 Dodge Durango (it came from the factory without a tow package) and a 2014 Honda Pilot (came from the factory with a receiver, and only half of the tow wiring harness). I knew a year ago I needed to get these two vehicles ready for a move we’ll be making from TN to SC using a trailer with electric brakes (by August of this year). You have the list of items I purchased. I finally got around to starting the projects. Just finished the 2014 Honda Pilot yesterday. The installation on the Pilot went somewhat well. I made one mistake (human error on my part) I put the 30 amp fuse from the T-one vehicle wiring harness #118265 in the wrong fuse box under the hood. Also, after installing the plug in wiring adapter for the electric brake controller #3070-P and the Prodigy P2, I discovered I had no power running to the brake controller. I didn’t know why. I happened by chance while reviewing the hundreds of customer feedback comments that I needed an additional 20 amp fuse under the hood in one of the fuse boxes in slot number 14, for e-trailer. It seems to work ok now for the Honda Pilot (going to hook up the trailer today for a trial run). I’ll be installing the other components on the 2001 Dodge Durango this week. E-Trailer dosn’t have a “How To” video for the 2001 Dodge Durango Sport without a towing package. Not looking forward to this install at all. A few years back, I did install a receiver and a 4-pin adapter wiring kit to my rear brake lights on this vehicle. I hope with the the Universal Kit #ETBC7 and the additional Prodigy P2 #90885 I bought from you guys I can get the Durango ready to tow the same electric brake trailer. I did find “Trailer Brake Controller Installation-2001 Dodge Ram-etrailer.com” that I hope will make this installation go ok. Will there be any additional fuses or other things that I will need for this vehicle? Thanks, Garry 539124


Comments

You should not need any fuses for the 4 way wiring in the Dodge Durango. You will need the circuit breakers that come with the # ETBC7

Comments

Typically, a brake controller will go into a sleep mode after 15-20 minutes of inactivity. When in the sleep mode, the controller only draws a tiny amount of power, nowhere near enough to drain a battery, unless its left for several months. Brake controllers dont have an on/off switch, as some folks could forget to turn it on before towing.

  • No Green Light on Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller on 2010 Honda Pilot when Connected to Trailer
  • The green light on the Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller, # 39510, indicates that the trailer is connected to your Honda Pilot, so it will not come on unless a trailer is connected. If the green light does not come on when the trailer is connected, then there are a few things that could be causing the green light to stay off. The first thing I would check is the trailer brake fuse in the secondary under hood fuse box. There should be a 20-amp fuse in fuse location # 14. If there is...

  • To the best of my knowledge, the 2011 Honda Pilot came from the factory with a Class III receiver. 4WD vehicles have a 4500 lb towing capacity but from what I understand, the towing capacity of the vehicle decreases as the number of passengers in the vehicle increases. Honda also expressly mentions that weight distribution systems should not be used with their vehicles. You will want to confirm this by reading your owners manual or consulting Honda.

Generally we suggest proportional controllers over the time-delay type since they deliver more even braking action and tend to reduce the wear and tear on both the tow vehicle's and trailer's brakes.

  • Trailer Brake Controller Installation in 2017 Honda Pilot with Factory Tow Package
  • Some late-model pickup trucks offer the option of a factory-installed trailer brake controller but a vehicle such as a 2017 Honda Pilot does not. In your Pilot you can use a superior aftermarket brake controller. In fact many folks with factory controllers ultimately end up replacing them since the aftermarket units like the Prodigy P2 # 90885 and P3 # 90195 work so much better. If your Pilot came from the factory with a tow package already installed then brake controller installation...

  • Location of Factory Brake Controller Port on a 2011 Honda Ridgeline
  • If your 2011 Honda Ridgeline has the factory tow package with the factory 7-Way connector, then you will plug the Tekonsha Brake Controller Wiring Harness, part # 3070-P into the brake controller port which is located under the dashboard, to the left of the steering column. It will be taped to another wiring harness near the brake pedal. I am including a picture of the factory brake controller plug location under the dash on your 2011 Honda Ridgeline.

  • Recommended Brake Controller For 2018 Honda Pilot
  • For your 2018 Honda Pilot I recommend a proportional brake controller. With a proportional brake controller # 90195, you can get heavy-duty emergency braking, general braking or slow-to-an-idle braking for your trailer automatically. The intensity with which your trailer brakes are activated and the rate at which they are applied are dependent on the deceleration of your tow vehicle. This means that, unlike time-delay controllers - which send the same amount of preset power to your trailer...

  • No Power to Brake Controller on a 2019 Honda Ridgeline
  • The Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers part # 3070-P that you referenced is currently listed as a fit for a 2006 - 2018 Honda Ridgeline. The 2019 model year has not yet been confirmed (August 2018) which might be why you are having issues. The pins may or may not have carried over to the next model year. The fuse that will supply power to a brake controller on a 2019 Honda Ridgeline is a 20 amp circuit in the number 3 position on the driver's side under hood...

  • Brake Controller Wiring for a 2007 Honda Pilot
  • The Wiring Adapter, part # 3070-P will not work on the 2007 Honda Pilot. The 2007 Pilot does not have the provision for plugging in a brake controller under the dash. To install a brake controller on your Pilot, you will have to hardwire the controller, using our Brake Controller Installation Kit, part # ETBC7 (for a 7-way connector) or ETBC6 (for a 6-Way connector). The install kits contain everything necessary for installing your brake controller. If your Pilot does not already have...

  • Will Brake Controller Harness # 3070-P Work in 2012 Honda Pilot EX-L 2WD
  • If your Pilot came from the factory with the 7-way trailer connector at the rear bumper, it will have the connector under the dash that the # 3070-P would plug into. You would attach the controller to the underside of the dash within easy reach of the driver, plug one end of the wiring adapter into the connector under the dash and plug the other end into the back of the controller. Since it sounds as if you had to install a 4-pole wiring harness, the connector will not be present and...

  • Recommended Brake Controller And Wiring For 2017 Honda Pilot
  • For a brake controller, I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195. This is a proportional brake controller that will apply the brakes on your trailer at the same time and with the same amount of pressure that you hit the brake pedal in your Pilot. It also has a really nice LCD screen that takes the code deciphering of most brake controllers out of the equation. It has 3 levels of boost and is adjustable to your preferences. If you have the factory tow package, then you only need...

  • Installing an Electric Trailer Brake Controller on a 2011 Honda Pilot
  • From what I can find, if the 2011 Honda Pilot did not come with a trailer connector then you cannot use the Tekonsha harness # 3070-P as it is not connected all the way like on models that came with the completed factory tow package. This could also mean that the 7-Way you installed, # 118253 is not fully functional. What you will need to do to install the brake controller is hardwire it using brake controller installation kit # 5506. You will need to cut the blue wire off several...

  • Is a Supplemental Transmission Cooler Required to Tow 1,200 Pound Trailer with 2016 Honda Pilot
  • I checked with the 2016 Honda Pilot owner's manual and found the following information regarding transmission coolers: An additional ATF (automatic transmission fluid) cooler is required to keep the transmission from overheating when towing more than 3,500 lbs (1,588 kg). So if the trailer is less than 1,200 you would not have to have a transmission cooler. But I did also find this information in the manual: Trailer brakes are recommended for any trailer with a total weight of 1,000...

  • 7-Way Trailer Connector Wiring Harness for a 2017 Honda Pilot EX-L
  • For trailer wiring harness # 118286 for your 2017 Honda Pilot you would not need to add any additional wiring or run any extra wires. It comes with everything needed to make the 7-Way fully functional. To attach the 7-Way to hitch # 75225 I recommend bracket # PK12711U. If you ever want to get a new brake controller I recommend the P2 # 90885 because it is easy to set up and use and it is reliable. You will also need wiring harness # 3070-P to plug the controller into your Pilot if the...

  • Where is the Brake Controller Connector Located Under the Dash on a 2009 Honda Ridgeline
  • The factory brake controller connector under the dash is not all that visible but it is fairly easy to locate. It is a 4-pin connector that is located underneath and left of the steering column. It will be taped to another harness near the brake pedal. Once you locate the connector you will know it is the right one if it mates to the Tekonsha Wire Replacement for Honda Ridgeline and Pilot, item # 3070-P. A little bit of searching is required. Sometimes the connector is completely...

  • Tekonsha Prodigy Blowing the IG Meter Fuse on a 2007 Honda Ridgeline RT
  • You can test your Prodigy brake controller without plugging the brake controller into your 2007 Honda Ridgeline RT. You will need a 12 volt power source, a vehicle battery will work, and I recommend using the replacement Brake Control Plug-In Harness, # 20127, so you do not have to cut into your wiring harness. You will connect the white wire from the harness to the negative battery terminal and the black wire to the positive terminal. This should provide power to the brake controller...
