  • Does 2018 Ford F-150 CPU Need to be Flashed After Installing Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Brake Controller
  • I spoke with my contact at Tekonsha regarding the Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller # 90195 and your 2018 Ford F-150. He said that they have actually found that the need for the CPU to be flashed on the 2018 (as well as 2017 and 2019) Ford F-150s seems to be random after installing the controller. They have installed many and they have heard from many customers where a trip to the dealer wasn't necessary. They have also found some that did need to be flashed for the truck to recognize...

  • Comparing the Curt Spectrum Brake Controller to Redarc Tow-Pro Elite
  • By all accounts the Curt Spectrum Trailer Brake Controller # C51170 works well and is easy to use and install on most vehicles. It is a brand new item so not a lot of feedback has come in on it. I did learn a few things though after speaking with our install team about this controller. First, compared to the Redarc controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2, the Curt Spectrum is easier to install. It can be surface mounted meaning that drilling is not necessarily required (depends on how you run the...

This basically just plugs into an active 7-way trailer connector like you have at the rear of your 2020 Jeep Grand Cherokee and once it's synced to a smart phone you are ready to tow.

  • Will Curt Echo Brake Controller Continue to Operate with Phone Turned Off
  • After the Curt Echo Wireless Brake Controller # C51180 is installed and paired to your phone it will continue to function as a proportional brake controller whether or not your phone is on.

  • 2020 Jeep Gladiator Trailer Brake Controller With Wiring Harness
  • That's a good question, and what happened was that when the 2020 Jeep Gladiator first came out, there was a brake controller harness manufactured by Curt that was thought to work with the Gladiator, but it turned out not to be the case. The leading manufacturer, Tekonsha, took their time and made a brake controller harness that has proven to work for a 2020 Jeep Gladiator with the factory tow package, the Tekonsha Custom Wiring Adapter for Trailer Brake Controllers - Jeep # 3073-P.

  • What is Required to Use Curt Echo Trailer Brake Controller
  • To use the Curt Echo Wireless Trailer Brake Controller # C51180 your vehicle only needs 12 volt, ground, and turn signals connected to its 7-way socket. What this means is you do not need the brake signal from the 7-way. For example, if you used a 4-to-7 way adapter such as # 30717, there will not be an output wire from the Echo to connect to, so you could simply tie that wire off, as you can see by the accompanying diagram. Apart from that the only other thing required is that your...

  • Installing Curt Echo Brake Controller in 2019 Ford F-150 without Factory 7-Way
  • So each 2019 Ford F-150 is going to have either a 7-way or 4-way connector; the 7-way would be obvious and you'd know if you had that, which means you are going to have the 4-way. It will be there, possibly hidden, so if you cannot find it you are going to want to check behind the rear axle on the driver side frame rail, and you should see the plug there. Once you find it you will be able to use the Curt Echo Brake Controller # C51180 on your F-150 by installing the 7-Way RV Upgrade...

  • How Does Brake Controller Install in 2017 GMC Savana Van
  • For some vehicles there is an install harness that will allows for a quick brake controller install, but not all vehicles come equipped with this. Your 2017 GMC Savana does not have this and you'd have to hardwire in a controller. Vehicles with the 7-Way tow package have the blue output brake wire already ran from the back to the front. It is located under the dash near the emergency brake pedal. Some models will require a wiring kit to run wire to the battery. This may require drilling...

  • Comparing the Curt Spectrum Brake Controller and Redarc Tow-Pro Elite for a 2016 Audi Q5
  • Both the Curt Spectrum # C51170 and the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 are excellent brake controller options for your 2016 Audi Q5 but in comparison I recommend going with the Tow-Pro Elite over the Spectrum. Although both controllers can be used as proportional brake controllers (they activate your trailer brakes at the same time and with the same intensity as the brakes on your Q5) the Tow-Pro Elite can also be switched to "User Control" mode which means your trailer brakes...

  • Is Reverse Light Circuit Needed When Using the Curt Echo Bluetooth Brake Controller

  • How to Add a Brake Controller to a 2015 BMW X5
  • A brake controller will only be necessary if the trailer you will be towing has brakes. The easiest way to tell whether or not the trailer has brakes would be to look at the trailer side connector. If the trailer side connector has 7 pins then it will more than likely have brakes. If the trailer does have brakes then I recommend using the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90195 as this is one of our most popular options. It has integrated safeguards to protect both...

  • Actually the Curt Spectrum # C51170 that you referenced does have a boost feature that makes the braking action more aggressive using the sensitivity setting. In the second row of the picture I attached you can see this setting. The further into the red section you set the controller the more aggressive the braking action will be when sensing braking action. To switch between modes basically you just will press the center section until you see the three blue and three red lights that...

  • Brake Controller Port Location on a 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500
  • According to my research, if your 2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 came with a factory 7-way trailer connector then you will have the brake controller connector pre-wired. This pre-wired connector should be under the driver side seat which you can see in the attached photo. The connector is green with four pins inside. Once you locate this connector you can then install the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90195 using the Tekonsha Custom Wiring Adapter for Trailer...

  • Since you have brake controller pre-wiring already on your 2017 Mercedes Sprinter 3500 you would not need to use a stop light switch like part # RM-751475. We don't sell a connector that plugs right into it, but you can still use it to wire up a brake controller like the P3 part # 90195.

  • Best Brake Controller Recommendation for 2019 Jeep Cherokee
  • The best brake controller I can recommend for your 2019 Jeep Cherokee is the Redarc Tow Pro part # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 with the custom fit harness for your vehicle part # 3014-S. The reason I recommend this brake controller is because unlike other bulkier brake controllers the only thing that mounts on the dash or center console is a small knob that is used to control it. If you check out the picture I attached you'll see how small of a foot print the controller takes up. The rest of the controller...

The reason for this is because part # ETBC7L is geared more towards wireless brake controllers like the Curt Echo Mobile Trailer Brake Controller part...

  • Recommended Brake Controller For 2018 Honda Pilot
  • For your 2018 Honda Pilot I recommend a proportional brake controller. With a proportional brake controller # 90195, you can get heavy-duty emergency braking, general braking or slow-to-an-idle braking for your trailer automatically. The intensity with which your trailer brakes are activated and the rate at which they are applied are dependent on the deceleration of your tow vehicle.

  • Should I Get a Proportional or Time-Delayed Brake Controller
  • The best brake controller option to go with is one that activates the brakes proportionally instead of time delayed. A proportional brake controller will activate the trailer brakes at the same time and with the same intensity as the tow vehicle brakes whereas a time delayed brake controller will activate the brakes at a predetermined time and intensity once the brake pedal is pressed in the tow vehicle. This can cause uneven wear of the brakes and tires. Proportional brake controllers...
