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.

Fits Hyundai Santa Cruz. Easy plug and play installation. Paired it with a P3 brake controller. Nice setup, works perfectly.

This was a very easy installation of the hitch, wiring harness and trailer brake. Less than 2 hours with some help from my wife. All of the electrical was plug-n-play. I'm sure doing it myself (with help from [online]) saved me a lot of money.

  • How to Disconnect Prodigy P3 Brake Controller From a 2020 Hyundai Palisade
    Yes, the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195 can be transferred from your 2020 Hyundai Palisade to a different tow vehicle fairly easily actually. If your Palisade came with a trailer tow package then the Prodigy P3 would have been connected using the Plug-In Wiring Adapter # TK78VR, and if it didn't have the tow package then there would be a simple splice-in connector instead. You just have to reach up and behind your controller (see attached) to disconnect the black clip which is included whether...

    We sure do! You'll want to use the Tekonsha 3081-P, which we offer as part # TK78VR. 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. In case you're not familiar with the operation of the Prodigy P3, I've linked to a video that explains it for you.

  • Recommended 7 Way Plug And Brake Controller For A 2024 Kia Telluride
    We can definitely set you up with a 7 way plug and brake controller for your 2024 Kia telluride. For your 7 way wiring harness I recommend the Tekonsha OEM Replacement Vehicle Wiring Harness # TK74CR. This will come with everything you need to wire the vehicle, including a plug for connecting a brake controller. For your brake controller I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195.

  • 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.

  • Recommended Plug In Brake Controller Adapter for a 2021 Kia Telluride w/ the Factory Tow Package
    The plug in adapter Item # 3032-P you referenced is not but I have one that is. The correct adapter to connect the Prodigy P3 Brake Controller item # 90195 to your 2021 Kia Telluride is the Tekonsha item # TK78VR. The connector you're looking for in your Kia is located behind the driver's side kick panel, just to the left of where the driver's left foot would be when driving.

  • Does the Prodigy P3 Brake Controller Draw Power When the Vehicle is Off?
    Yes, it would. The Prodigy P3 Brake Controller item # 90195 is never really off it just goes into sleep mode. When in sleep mode it's drawing milliamps of power which would take your Kia sitting idle for months to drain your battery. I have the P2 item # 90885 installed in a truck that sits for weeks at a time outside in the cold during the winter and have never had a starting issue. If you are concerned it is really simple to unplug the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter item # TK78VR when...

  • Parts Needed to Install Brake Controller and 7-Way 2023 Hyundai Palisade
    If you are missing the tow package to install a brake controller would be more involved on your 23 Palisade. You can still use the P2 and the install harness that plugs in under dash but you'd need to also install a 4-way part # TK22VR and convert to 7-way with # ETBC7. In the owners manual of your Palisade will have the connections and fuses that need to be installed. For a hitch the etrailer # e95ZR would be a really great option that is mostly hidden and has great towing capacities.

  • 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. This controller has a small control knob that mounts on your dash where you find it most convenient. The main unit will mount behind the dash out of sight. 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.

    To install the Redarc Tow-Pro Liberty Brake Controller # RED24FR on your 2024 Kia Telluride with the factory tow package I recommend the following parts.

This means you will not have to splice into any wiring to install the controller.

  • Recommended Trailer Brake Controller For a 2022 Hyundai Palisade With Factory 7-Way
    I recommend installing the Redarc Tow-Pro Liberty Brake Controller # RED24FR on your 2023 Hyundai Palisade. This brake controller uses a small control knob mounted on your dash to adjust the brakes. The large portion of the controller is hidden behind the dash unlike other controllers which place the entire controller on the dash. You will be able to connect this to your factory wiring using the Tekonsha Harness # TK78VR with Adapter # 331-TPH-017 for a plug and play installation.

  • What Wiring and Brake Controller do You Recommend for My 2022 Hyundai Palisade?

With the 4-way installed first and the 7-way installed second, you prep your vehicle for brake controller functionality.
