Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

This adapter plugs into the connector beneath your vehicle's dashboard. To reach the connector, remove the driver's-side kick panel. Once you have removed the panel, you will see the gray, 4-pin connector that mates with the adapter.


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.

The connector is located behind the driver's side kick panel, just to the left of where the driver's left foot would be when driving.

    Out of all the trailer brake controllers that are confirmed to fit your 2023 Hyundai Palisade, I recommend The Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller.

  • How Does Curt 7-Way Kit for 2021 Hyundai Palisade Connect to Brake Controller Wiring
    Your 2021 Hyundai Palisade has brake controller wiring that runs from the port under the dash back to the plug that the Curt 7-way kit part # C68JR plugs into. That is why this kit that fits your vehicle does not have any wiring that runs from the front to the back. Once installed you could use an install harness like the part # TK78VR to install a controller like the Brake EVN # TK63VR and you'd be set.

  • Best Low Profile Trailer Brake Controller For a 2022 Hyundai Palisade
    For your 2022 Hyundai Palisade I recommend the Redarc Tow-Pro Liberty Brake Controller # RED24FR.

It is a proportional controller so once you have it set to the trailer you are pulling, the controller will automatically adjust power for light and heavy braking.
