Product was as specified. Video tutorials made install easy. If you have any problems these guys are right on the ball. Can't say that enough. 171476


I am very pleased with the results of my installation of the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 in my 1998 Toyota T100 using the ETBC6 installation kit. Patrick at etrailer provided information to help me know what to do, and I reviewed etrailer's video entitled "Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2002 Toyota Tundra" several times in preparation for the effort. The video is the most comprehensive of any I could find, showing what to do from beginning to end, even though the vehicle is different from mine. The ETBC6 kit included everything I needed (extremely convenient) except for a 1/2" grommet (which it should include for a few pennies more). The effort required about 5 hours. The most difficult part was determining which wire on the T100's Brake Switch (Green with White Stripe) to attach the red wire to from the Prodigy P2 because the Brake Switch is located in a very difficult location that could not be easily probed. 138053

Weve used it several times throughout the past year and it works perfectly. I wouldnt pull a trailer without it.

Everything in my kit was of great quality and most importantly I received it promptly after placing my order. The sales rep was very knowledgeable and very professional. Thank you Cathy. 30692

  • Parts Needed to Convert 4-Way of 2017 Jeep Wrangler to 6-Way and Install Brake Controller
    The kit you need to convert your 4-way to a 6-way is the part # ETBC6 which plugs right into the 4-way and then comes with everything needed to wire in a brake controller. 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 that senses the amount of braking the tow vehicle is applying and applies a proportionate...

  • How to Connect a Trailer with 6-Pole to Vehicle with 4-Flat
    In order to tow a trailer with what I assume is a 6-pole round trailer connector on your 2010 Subaru Forester with a 4-flat trailer connector all you will need is the 6-Way and 4-Way Flat part # ETBC6. This will give you everything to attach the wiring from the trailer to the tow vehicle. The 6-pole trailer connector on your trailer will allow for you to add brakes to the trailer.

  • Using Part # ETBC6 to Install Brake Controller on 1999 Chevy Astro
    The 4 to 6-way trailer connector adapter supplied with the Brake Controller Installation Kit has a 4-pole connector that connects to the existing 4-pole on your Astro. The remaining wires attach as follows: The black wire provides 12-volt power for use by any trailer mounted accessories requiring a power feed. This wire would run to the positive battery terminal via the 40 amp inline breaker included in the kit. The blue wire carries the output from the brake controller. It would...

  • Parts Needed to Convert 4-Way of 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport to 6/7-Way and Install Brake Controller
    You would need to convert the 4-way to a 6-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC6. I attached installation instructions and an install video for this product as well. In most cases you'd want a 7-way and not a 6-way so you'd instead want the part # ETBC7. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our best selling brake controller because...

  • Brake Controller Installation on a 1993 Ford F-250 with 6-Way Trailer Connector
    If the trailer connector on your 1993 Ford F-250 is a factory installed connector then the truck should have the wiring already run for a brake controller. A brake controller would plug into the truck to the connector that is under the dash around the steering column. It is a 4-pin connector with a mating end that will fit onto # 20262. To test if the brake output wire goes from that connector to the trailer connector at the back you can perform a simple test. Using a separate 12 volt...

  • Do I Need Brake Controller For 1999 Toyota Tacoma Towing 2500 lb Trailer w/ Electric Brakes
    If the Gross Trailer Weight (GTW) of the trailer you are towing is half or more of the tow vehicles Gross Vehicle Weight, it is recommended to use a brake controller. Most states even require that a brake controller be used. I would recommend installing a brake controller for braking power and certainly for safety. Since your 1999 Tacoma has a 4-way and the trailer has a 6-way connector, to install a brake controller, you will need to use the Brake Controller 6 and 4 Way Installation...

  • What is Needed to Install a Brake Controller and 6-Way Trailer Connector on a 2008 Honda Pilot
    Since your trailer has a 6-Way connector installed you most likely have one of 3 wiring situations on your trailer. The first, and most likely, is that your trailer has electric brakes and a power wire to maintain a battery for auxiliary functions. The second is that you have the same power wire and backup lights at the rear of the trailer. The third, and least likely but possible, is that your trailer has hydraulic surge brakes and a coupler with electric backup lockout. If your trailer...

  • Brake Controller and Brake Assemblies Needed for Two Axle Horse Trailer
    When choosing a brake controller, I would recommend you go with a proportional controller. A proportional controller will sense how quickly and at what intensity the tow vehicle is braking, and will send the appropriate amount of voltage to the trailer brakes so that the vehicle and the trailer stop at the same rate. The Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885 is one of our best sellers because it is very simple to set up and use. The method used to install the controller will depend on the...

  • Brake Controller and Installation Kit for a 1999 Ford Ranger
    To wire your 1999 Ford Ranger for a 6-way connector and a brake controller you will need a 4 way wiring harness for your vehicle, which you already have and a Brake Controller 6 & 4 Way Installation Kit, part number ETBC6, along with a brake controller you see link. You will attach your 4-Way wiring harness inline with the connector provided with the ETBC6 kit to power the taillight functions. I have linked you to an FAQ article that outlines the install procedure as well as a link...

  • Converting Factory 4-Way Trailer Connector on 2006 Dodge Ram to a 6-Way to Tow Trailer with Brakes
    You'll want to convert the 4-way trailer connector at the rear of your 2006 Dodge Ram to a 6-way round using our # ETBC6 kit. This kit includes the 6-way connector and all of the wiring you'll need for an electric trailer brake controller to power the brakes on the fifth wheel. If you don't already have a brake controller I recommend the Prodigy P3 # 90195. It's one of the top controllers on the market because of how easy it is to use. Since your truck has a factory 4-way the connector...

  • Is There a 6 and 4-Way Combo Connector Sold Separately for Use on a 1998 GMC Ck Series Pickup
    Yes, we have an adapter that converts the 4 pole connector to a 6 and 4-way connector, it is Adapter 4 Pole to 6 Pole and 4 Pole Trailer Wiring Adapter, part 37175. If your vehicle currently has 4 pole wiring it will work perfectly on your 1998 Chevrolet CK Series Pickup Truck. If you do not have a 4-way connector on your vehicle you would need the Tow Ready Custom Fit Vehicle Wiring, part # 118315, that will plug directly to your factory wiring.

  • Brake Controller and Installation for a 2001 Dodge Van 1500
    You will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 18252. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC6 like you mentioned if the trailer you plan to tow has a 6-way on it. Typically trailer will have 7-ways and the # ETBC7 would be needed. Normally horse trailers will use the 6-way and most other trailers...

  • Brake Controller Wiring and Mounting Bracket for a 2003 Acura MDX
    This is the replacement bracket (pocket), item # 7686, and replacement wiring harness, item # 7894, for the Prodigy. I noticed you said you need a 4 to 6 way adapter. Double check to make sure you need a 6 way. Although, 6 way connectors are common, 7 way plugs are more common. The following links will take you to our brake controller installation kits online (one is an install kit for a 6 way, item # ETBC6, and one is for the 7 way, item # ETBC7).

  • Brake Controller Wiring Kit for a 2000 Dodge Dakota
    You can use part # 37175 to adapt your existing 4-pole to a 6-way, which will provide lighting functions only to your trailer. Plug the adapter into the 4-pole, and attach the white wire with the ring terminal to the tow vehicle frame or chassis. I would urge you to go ahead do a full install including the brake controller. You might find that the small dump trailer is heavier than you think, and having the trailer brakes active would be much safer for you and other motorists around...

  • Recommended Parts to Install 6-Pole Round Trailer Socket on 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    To have a 6-pole round-pin type trailer socket on your 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee I suggest our complete kit # ETBC6. This kit includes a 6-pole socket and all of the other components needed to have a working 6-pole trailer socket on your Grand Cherokee. Since I do not know what type of 6-pole socket you have it is best to stick with the complete kit to ensure everything will fit together properly. I have linked an installation video for our similar # ETBC7 (7-way) kit that will show you...

  • Wiring 2005 RAV4 for Towing Jayco Camper with 6-Way Square Trailer Connector
    The 4 pole on your vehicle isn't capable of carrying an additional circuit to maintain your camper battery. Since the 6 pin square plug on your camper is pretty much obsolete, I'd recommend you remove it and replace it with a 7-way connector like # PK12706 and install a 7-way on the vehicle. A 7-way is much more common, which is why I'd recommend it. Keep in mind that the accessory circuit on the 7-way can maintain a trailer mounted battery, but will not be able to recharge it once it's...

  • Parts for Adding a Brake Controller and 6 Pole Wiring to a 2002 Toyota Tundra

The 6 way connector would be included as well as all needed wire, circuit breakers and hardware. Your factory 4 way would plug right in to the adapter. We have detailed instructions for the brake controller installation kit and a video that will help with the installation, see links. You did not mention which brake controller...

  • Installation of 6-Way Brake Controller Kit # ETBC6 on 2008 Toyota RAV4
    I suggest you first test your 4-pole installation by applying your grounded circuit tester to the three pins on the 4-pole. Check that the connectors are clean and free of discoloration and corrosion; make sure they're seated together fully and locked into place. Make sure the 12V power wire from the battery is solidly connected to the black wire for the harness. If this connector delivers the appropriate signal voltages at the stop/turn and running light pins then move on to checking your...

  • Parts Needed to Connect 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan with 4-Way Trailer Connector to Trailer With 6-Way
    The best way to install a 6-way connector on the rear of your 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan is to use # ETBC6. This uses your existing 4-way and provides a 6-way and all the necessary wiring to power your trailer's brakes. The only thing it doesn't include is an electric brake controller. If you need a brake controller as well I suggest the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 # 90885 because of its reliability and ease of use. It's one of our top selling brake controllers. I've attached a video of the...

  • Brake Controller and Wiring Recommendation for a 2008 Ford Explorer Towing Trailer with 6-Way
    The part # 37175 could be used to adapt your 4-way to a 6-way, but you will be required to track down several other components so that you can make the connector functional and to install a brake controller. A better product to get would be the part # ETBC6 as it comes with everything needed to convert the 4-way to a 6-way and wire up a brake controller. I attached a link to install instructions plus an install video for you to check out. I also attached a picture that has a diagram...

  • Brake Control Wiring Adapter for 2010 Dodge Dakota
    If your Dakota was equipped with the towing package that includes the 7-way connector on the rear bumper, part # 3020P is the correct Brake Controller Wiring Adapter. Part # 3021P is for the full-sized Dodge Ram. If your Dakota was not equipped with the OEM tow package, you will need to hardwire your controller using our Brake Controller Installation Kit, part # ETBC6 if a 6-way connector is needed, or ETBC7 for a 7-way. I will provide a link that will explain in detail how the Brake...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch Receiver, Ball Mount, And Wiring For 2017 Chevy Colorado
    Yes. You will want the Curt Trailer Hitch Receiver Class III - 2", # C13203, for your 2017 Chevy Colorado. This is a bolt on installation that requires temporary removal of bumper during installation. If you will be using this trailer hitch receiver for towing, I recommend the etrailer.com Ball Mount Kit for 2" Hitches - 7,500 lbs, # 989900. This will give you two different ball mounts with different rise or drop along with two hitch balls and the pin and clip. If you prefer an...

That is, it has 5 pins in a circle and one in the center. If it...

  • How To Wire a Brake Controller to a 2001 Toyota Tacoma
    The brake controller you were looking at, part # 39510, would work just fine. We also have a complete 6 way kit that will wire up your 6 pin plug at the bumper and wire it to the brake controller, part # ETBC6. You will not even need to cut off your 4 way connector as it will connect to the 6 way pigtail. This way, when you are pulling a trailer without brakes, you still have a functional 4 way connector. I will briefly run through the wiring process, but I will also include some...

    Your 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe is not pre-wired for a 7-Way or 6-Way connector so you will need to do a bit more wiring to install a brake controller on your vehicle. Depending on the connector on your trailer you can use either the Brake Controller 7 & 4 Way Installation Kit, item # ETBC7, or the Brake Controller 6 and 4 Way Installation Kit, item # ETBC6, to wire your vehicle for an electric brake controller and 12 volt power, to provide accessory power to the trailer.

    Some vehicles have the provision for plugging the brake controller directly into the wiring under the dash, but unfortunately that option is not available with your 2000 Toyota Sienna. Your Brake Controller will have to be hardwired directly into the existing vehicle wiring. We have a Brake Controller Installation Guide available on our web site.

  • Brake Controller Install on 1997 Chevrolet Pickup
    This is a fairly straightforward install. GM has already run some of the necessary wiring from the rear frame rail area to the engine compartment, so you will see a blue wire for the electric brake function, and an orange wire which provides 12 volt power for trailer accessories like a breakaway kit near the end of the driver side frame rail. The orange and blue wires at the rear of the truck would attach to the appropriate poles on the 7-way trailer connector on the rear bumper. You can...
