  • Does a Brake Controller Come With 2015 Ford Explorer With Factory Tow Package?
  • You will need a brake controller for your 2015 Ford Explorer with factory tow package to control electric trailer brakes, as one is not included.

  • Draw-Tite Activator Manual Override Works But Pressing the Brake Pedal Does Not on a 2011 Ford F-150

You will want to be sure to check all of your grounds as sometimes that can cause weird things to happen. What I recommend doing is testing different areas for that wiring. You can use a Circuit Tester # 3808 to pierce the wire to the Stop Light Switch on your 2011 Ford F-150's side of the connector that hooks up to the Plug-In Adapter # 22292. This will be the wire that corresponds...

You will not need to have the dealership flash your computer for this installation. The P3 is a proportional brake controller that will give you...

  • Is It Normal for the Tekonsha PowerTrac to be Sending Signal Without Brakes or Manual Lever Applied
  • It is perfectly normal for a brake controller, like your Tekonsha PowerTrac # 39523, to be sending a small amount of power back to the connector on your tow vehicle. That voltage that you are seeing is the brake controller's way of checking to see if there are brakes on a trailer that are connected or not. It should not be enough to apply your brakes. I would be willing to bet that your trailer brakes need to be adjusted. If you do not have the tool to do so you can use the Performance...
