Tekonsha Voyager Trailer Brake Controller - 1 to 4 Axles - Proportional
part number: 39510

Proportional brake controller can be mounted within a 90-degree vertical range. LED monitor indicates braking action of trailer. Fine-tune power adjustment lets you set braking intensity to suit your towing needs.

Features:

  • Brake controller activates trailer brakes in proportion to your vehicle's braking action
    • Automatically adjusts trailer's braking based on deceleration of tow vehicle
    • Activates immediately - no pausing like with time-delayed brake controllers
  • Multiple mounting options
    • Position within 90 degrees in the vertical plane
  • Fine-tune adjustment for braking power and aggressiveness
  • Green LED monitors a secure connection with trailer
  • LED monitor changes color to alert you to braking action of trailer
  • Built-in, slide-bar manual override
  • Plug-in, vehicle-specific brake-control adapter can be used for certain applications to reduce installation time


Specs:

  • Application: trailers with up to 4 axles (8 brake assemblies)
    • Designed for use with electric brakes only
  • Dimensions: 3" wide x 5" long x 1-1/2" tall
  • Mounting: between -20 degrees and 70 degrees in the vertical plane
  • 5-Year limited warranty


Proportional Braking

With a proportional brake controller, 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. This means that, unlike time-delay controllers - which send the same amount of preset power to your trailer brakes every time - proportional controllers are able to adapt to every braking situation differently. So, if you slam on the brakes in your truck, your trailer brakes will activate with that same extreme intensity. And if you merely slow down as you approach a red light, your trailer will gradually brake in the same manner.


As long as the Voyager controller is mounted properly and is pointed in the direction of travel, it will sense - via an internal inertia sensor - how your tow vehicle brakes. This inertia-based sensor responds to the deceleration of your tow vehicle as you brake by signaling the controller to send out enough power to your trailer brakes so that they are activated with an intensity that matches. The result is uniform braking across your towing setup. No push-pull action - just smooth, proportional braking every time.


Power and Sensitivity Adjustment

Getting the braking power you need for your application is simple with the Voyager. First, set up the controller as indicated in the instructions, making sure that the internal sensor is properly leveled. Then set the overall power by adjusting the power knob while you test out your rig. The power should be just enough to achieve maximum braking without locking up your trailer brakes.


Once you have the overall power set, you can fine-tune the power output by adjusting the sensitivity of the internal sensor. Use the level knob on the side of the Voyager to achieve your desired degree of intensity. Move the knob toward you (clockwise) to delay the power output, creating braking sensitivity that is ideal for lightweight setups. If you are towing a heavy load, you may want the trailer to brake more aggressively to prevent it from pushing your tow vehicle. To get more intense stopping action, turn the level knob away from you (counterclockwise).


LED Indicator

On the front of the Voyager there is an LED indicator that is designed to keep you aware of the braking action of your trailer. Typically, this light burns green to indicate that your trailer and tow vehicle are securely connected. When the light is green, only 5 milliamps are being drawn, thus minimizing drain on your vehicle's battery.


As you apply the brakes in your tow vehicle, the LED will change to red. This indicates that power is being sent to the trailer brakes. The light will also burn red whenever you activate the manual override lever.


During installation and setup, this light is used to ensure that the Voyager will be able to function correctly. Proper leveling of the internal sensor is crucial to the operation of this brake controller. When the sensor is level, the LED will change to a shade of orange.


Simple Installation

The Voyager is designed to be mounted in your cab at a vertical angle that is between -20 degrees and 70 degrees.


Correct Voyager mounting90-Degree Voyager mounting

Note: The Voyager must be mounted on a level horizontal (side-to-side) plane and must be lined up with the direction of travel for the internal sensor to function properly.


Once the controller is mounted, you must level the internal sensor. First, set the overall power to maximum using the knob on the side of the controller. Then, while pressing the tow vehicle's brake pedal, adjust the level knob on the other side of the brake controller (this is the same knob that is used to fine-tune the power output) until the LED monitor is a shade of orange.


Installation requires that you either purchase a custom wiring adapter designed to plug into the Voyager or that you hardwire the controller directly into your vehicle. To hardwire the Voyager, you must remove the plug at the end of the integrated wiring harness.


Installation Accessories

For easier installation, a vehicle-specific wiring adapter is available for most newer trucks and SUVs. One end of the custom adapter plugs into your vehicle, and the other end plugs into the controller - no hardwiring required.


Note: If a custom brake-control wiring adapter is not available for your vehicle, one of the following will be required:

20-Amp circuit breaker (9506P - sold separately) for 2- to 4-brake applications

30-Amp circuit breaker (38630 - sold separately) for 6- to 8-brake applications


See also etrailer.com's exclusive 7- and 4-way brake-control installation kit (ETBC7 - sold separately) if you don't already have a 7-way plug at the back of your vehicle.

This was a fairly easy install and has a wide range of adjustment if your mounting level is not perfect. It has worked perfectly for a year and I am able to swivel it up and out of the way when I don't use it so it has no interference. Very happy with the adjustability of the unit and gives you piece of mind when we are towing a nearly 4000 lb trailer with a 4000lb SUV. 837232

Completely plug and play installation and works flawlessly, very happy with this unit. I also ordered the exact harness for my 2005 f150 with tow package. Here are a couple of hints that may be helpful. My installation also required a 30 amp cartridge fuse to be installed in the fuse panel in location #105(electric trailer brakes) under the dash on the passenger side. I also installed a relay in location r05 (trailer tow battery charge) but I don't think this is needed for the controller to function. I still had the original trailer brake kit and it had the additional fuse panel instructions and the relay. The owners manual showed where the 30 amp fuse and relay plugs in. You cannot test this unit until a trailer with brakes is connected, ie the led will not light up until it senses a brake circuit. 272082

I have had several of these over the years. I currently have 3 controllers on different trucks. I pull 5 different trailers with completely different weights. The controller works really well. I definately recommend this controller. You level it on the left side, which allows for placement in alot of areas of the truck. When I am towing I can adjust the brakes with the dial on the right side. Obviously the brakes need to be lighter when the trailer is empty. Simply turn the dial back until the brakes don't lock up. When I get it loaded I turn the dial forward until I can feel the brakes take hold. The lever on the front lets me manually apply the trailer brakes. I use this in cases where I am going downhill and it is better to let the trailer slow me down. If I ever need another controller, this will be it. Great price also. 92292

This installation is in a 2010 Ford F-150 Lariat The installation was very easy. It helps to have a 90 degree screwdriver to install the screws on the right side. The screws will install easier if you install them first, remove them and re-install after the bracket is installed on the vehicle. 8161

We do not have any instructions for this item either, but I do a help article that explains the details of how to install this item. This is a hard wire application for Draw-Tite or Tekonsha branded brake controllers, this is where the black plug end will install. The loose wires will then be connected to the corresponding functions on the vehicle: Blue: trailer brakes White: vehicle battery negative terminal Black: vehicle battery positive terminal Red: cold side of stoplight switch

The break controller was what I ordered but the wire harness that was sent with it did not have a wiring diagram so I could wire it to my truck correctly. I had to go to a YouTube video to get the correct information so I could wire the harness to my truck without hurting the controller or the vehicle. Question: Does your company not send a diagram with all of your harness? Customer should not have to go to a YouTube video to install the product. 406364


Comments
Hi Walter and Donna, since brake controller wiring harnesses are not universal, manufacturers do not provide wiring diagrams in their packages because they do not know how or if your specific vehicle is prepped for a brake controller. However, we do have a help article on brake controller wiring, and general trailer wiring. I have included links for your reference. If you have any other issues do not hesitate to contact our tech experts.

The Voyager brake controller is an older design that uses a pendulum-style accelerometer, versus one thats solid state. This is the rattle youre hearing.

Probably the easiest thing that I have ever done in the automotive world. The online guide was perfect! Easy to read, follow, and explained very well. When I contacted customer service about what I needed, not only did they explain things to me, but the representative sent (via email) pictures, prices, and part no. for the items I needed. It took the hunting and surfing out of it. I figured with customer svc. like this, why try to search for something a dollar cheaper. I will probably always go here from now on. 855246

  • Brake Controller Install Harness Location and Recommendation for 2017 Nissan Armada
  • If your 2017 Nissan Armada came with a factory 7-way at the rear of the vehicle you can use an install harness like part # 3050-P to install a Tekonsha controller like the P2 part # 90885. I attached a picture that shows where you'll find the port above the accelerator. If you do not have a 7-way you'll need the part # N40975 to install one.

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for 1999 Chevy Silverado

Which for an economically priced brake controller that will still work great the best option is the Tekonsha Voyager part # 39510 as it is a proportional controller.

  • Where to Install Brake Controller on a 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • The best place to mount a brake controller like the Tekonsha Voyager # 39510 is under the driver's side dash in a place so that it is within easy reach in the even that you need to activate the manual override. Technically it could be mounted to the floor but since that will be a little out of reach I recommend to the right of your dash under the steering wheel as you can see from the attached photo. This helps to keep it out of the way especially when getting in and out of your vehicle.

  • Does the Tow Package Wiring on a 2008 Chevy Colorado Match a Brake Controller Color for Color
  • On the 2008 Chevy Colorado with a factory tow package, the wiring for a brake controller is located under the dash, to the left of the brake pedal. The wire bundle should have a white tag on it that also lists the functions of each wire. You will need to match the wires to the brake controller by function, not by color. On the brake controller, white is ground, black is 12 volt power, blue goes out to the trailer connector, and red is in from the stop light circuit on the brake switch. It

  • What Do I Need to Wire a Basic 4-Way Trailer Connector on a 1996 Toyota Tacoma Pickup
  • Since the 1996 Toyota Tacoma has separate turn and brake signals, a converter is necessary. Fortunately, there is a plug-and-play harness, part # 118379, available for your Tacoma that makes installing very easy. It simply plugs in-line with the tail light connectors behind the tail light housings. Then you connect the ground wire to a good ground point on the truck frame and you are done. I have added a link to the part and a video of it being installed on a 2000 Tacoma. I have also

  • Installing a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2012 Dodge Caravan with Tow Package
  • I spoke with a colleague who worked at Chrysler and he stated that they do not put the trailer hitch and 7-Way wiring on the Grand Caravan at the factory. That is something that the dealer installs. In any event here is what you will need to do. The brake controller will need to be hardwired into the vehicle. The white wire on the brake controller will need to get connected directly to the negative terminal on the vehicle battery. The black wire will need to connect to a 30 amp circuit

  • Where to Splice Brake Light Wire From Brake Controller To Stoplight Wire
  • Since your vehicle does not have a brake controller port, you will want to use a universal wiring pigtail. For example, if you have a Tekonsha brake controller, you could use a Plug-In Harness for Tekonsha and Draw-Tite Brake Controllers # 20127. You will want to use a circuit tester, like # 40376, to test the wires at the stoplight switch at the back of your brake pedal to find the wire that only has signal when the brake pedal is depressed. Once you have found the wire that only produces

  • Which Brake Switch Wire is Used When Installing Brake Controller on 2008 Dodge Ram 1500
  • A brake controller has four wires exiting the rear of the controller, they attach as follows: the red wire attaches to the brake stoplight switch located at the top of the brake pedal. The color of the correct wire on the brake switch is usually a white wire with a tan stripe, but it could vary so it is best to find the correct wire you will need by testing the wires for function. The stoplight switch can have several wires exiting it, you will need a circuit tester like Quickee Tester,

  • Installing a Brake Controller on a 1988 GMC K 1500 Pickup Truck
  • GM did not install a brake controller adapter port in the C/K series pick up trucks, so there are no plug-in adapters that will allow you to install a brake controller without having to run wires. If you already have 7-way connector at the rear of your truck, then you could use wiring kit # 5506. This kit includes a duplex wire to run a brake output circuit from the brake controller to your 7-way and to run a wire from the brake controller to the battery (via the circuit breaker) and

  • Troubleshooting Prodigy Trailer Brake Controller Causing Dash Light Errors
  • Sounds like it could be the way your brake controller was installed. I would first check the connection of the red wire, this should be connected to the brake light switch wire that is only active (hot) when the brakes are pressed. Since you have a 2008 this newer body style has been known to need to be hardwired when installing the brake controller to function properly. I have linked a step by step Help Article for you to look at. I would also recommend to clean out any corrosion

  • Installing a Brake Controller on 2013 Mazda CX-5 with 7-Way Installed
  • Since you have a 7-Way you will only need a few more components to complete a brake controller install on your vehicle. For a wiring kit to install the brake controller and the 7-way adapter you would want the Wiring Kit for 2 and 4 Brake Electric Brake Controllers # 5506. This will provide the power source and ground for the wiring for the brake controller. You will need to test the wires from the brake pedal switch of your vehicle to find a circuit that has voltage when the brakes

  • How to Find the Brake Switch Wire to Install a Brake Controller in a 2013 Ford Edge
  • Traditionally (at least from 2004 to 2007) Ford has used a green wire on the brake switch to attach to the red wire on a brake controller. However, the only way to know for sure is to test the wires using a circuit tester like # 40376. Manufacturers can use any wire they want and if they run out of the normal color they use, they grab whatever is available to keep the assembly line moving. To test the wire use the circuit tester to probe the wires. You need the one that only shows power

  • Recommended Wiring Harness for 2018 Buick Enclave and Tekonsha Brake Controller
  • For your Tekonsha Brake Controller, the custom wiring harness # 3026-P is not a confirmed fit for your 2018 model as it was for your 2011 model. At this time we don't have a confirmed fit from any of our manufacturers. It appears that Buick has changed their connector and the only fit at this time is hardwiring the brake controller. For that, you can use the Replacement Brake Control Plug-In Harness for Tekonsha and Draw-Tite Brake Controller 12" Long # 20127. I've attached a wiring

  • Brake Controller Wiring Functions to Install on a 1990 Dodge D250 Pickup
  • The red wire that disappears under the dash of your 1990 dodge D250 pickup is input from the brake switch and will go to the red wire on the brake controller. Blue is output to the trailer brakes and connects to the blue wire on the brake controller. White is ground as you know and connects to the controller white wire and the fused red wire is for power which connects to the black brake controller wire. If you had switched the other red wire and the blue wire nothing would have happened

  • Which Brake Switch Wire to Use to Install a Brake Controller in a 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan
  • The brake switch wire you will need on your 2017 Dodge Grand Caravan to install the PowerTrac # 39523 is the white wire with a green stripe. It should only have power when the brake pedal is pressed and not at any other time. The vehicle tail light circuit cannot be used because the brake signal is not the only circuit on that wire. I have linked a video that will help.

  • Hardwire Trailer Brake Controller Installation on a 2001 Dodge Van 1500
  • Installing a brake controller on your 2001 Dodge 1500 Van is a hardwire installation.

If the van already has a 7-Way trailer connector, you will need to add a brake controller installation kit, # 5506. On the back of the 7-Way connector, find the wire that is coming out of the 7:00 position. Cut the
