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.

Weve used it several times throughout the past year and it works perfectly. I wouldnt pull a trailer without it.
LG T - 06/27/2015


Easy to install, great to have both 4 pin and 6 pin for variety of trailers.


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.


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.


Good product at good price, and great s upport

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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).

  • 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...

  • 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...

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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

The only thing not included is the zip ties which we don't offer as separate items but those are easy to source.

  • 6-Pin Trailer to 4-Pole Truck Connections Plus Brake Controller For 2005 Chevrolet Colorado
    The best solution for a trailer already with a 6-pin connector and a truck already with a 4-pole connector is the etrailer # ETBC6 kit witch will preserve your 4-pole connector for other trailers and provide a new 6-pin connector for your trailer. Basically, the kit bolts to your bumper or hitch and your old 4-pole plugs into the back of it. Then you have to connect your brake, ground, and 12-volt lines to your vehicle. The kit will include all of the hard ware that you need. Additionally,...

For a 4-way, I recommend the # 118417 T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness from Tekonsha. This is a custom fit wiring harness and plugs directly into connection points behind the passenger's-side tail light. For the 6-way connection, you want the # ETBC6 Universal Installation Kit. This includes all...

The electric brake circuit will work, but you will also need a brake controller, like the Tekonsha Prodigy P3, # 90195, and a custom brake controller wiring adapter, like part # 3070-P. The brake controller is what applies power to the electric trailer brake circuit. Models that came pre-wired for the tow package will have a factory brake controller plug located...

    According to my research, the 2012 Subaru Outback is rated for towing between 2700 and 3000 lbs, depending on how it's equipped. I'd encourage you to confirm this for yourself by checking your owner's manual or with Subaru. If your Outback isn't a Sport model, there are available trailer hitches. I'd recommend the Draw-Tite Class III trailer hitch, part # 75673. For wiring, you'd need part # 118467. I've linked you to installation instructions and videos for both the hitch and the wiring....
