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 (sold separately) 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

Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

Brake-Control Adapter Port

This adapter plugs into the built-in connector beneath your vehicle's dashboard. To access this connector, first locate the instrument cluster finish panel in the center of you dash, near the driver's side. Carefully pry the panel out and undo the locking tabs to remove the panel. Plug the adaptor into the mating connector in the large gray housing behind the panel.


To install your electric brake controller you need to connect the wiring of the controller to your vehicle. Certain manufacturers offer pre-wired options, typically known as tow packages, wherein these wires are run for you from the dash to the trailer connector on the back of your vehicle. Often, a brake controller wiring harness is included with your tow package. This harness plugs into a port beneath your dash and connects to the four wires of the brake controller. If, however, you have a brake controller with a plug in place of the four loose wires, you can use the Tekonsha adapter.


This adapter requires no hardwiring. It is designed to plug directly into your electric brake controller for the simplest installation possible. Because there are no wires to connect, installation is not permanent. You can unplug and remove your brake controller at any time and securely stow it away.

Video Transcript for Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2016 Ford F-150

Today on our 2016 Ford F-150 we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Tekonsha Voyager trailer brake controller. This proportional brake controller works for one up to four axles. The part number is 39510. We'll also be using the Tekonsha pigtail for brake controllers, part number 22292. The Voyager's going to be a proportional brake controller. What this means is that it's going to activate based on, or proportionally to how our vehicle is braking.

If we just generally, just normally step on the brakes and start slowing down the vehicle our brake controller has an accelerometer inside of it. It's going to pick up on that and it's also going to gently apply the brakes on our trailer. If we we're to get more into an emergency stop situation where we really hammer on the brakes, really trying to get stopped quickly, again the Voyager recognizes that and it's going to change the way it does it's job. Now it's going to send the power back there much more quickly in relation to how our braking here with the truck to help us in those emergency stop situations. We've got really flexible mounting options with the Voyager. We've got 90 degrees of mounting positioning.

We have to keep it inline with our direction of travel. We can go to negative 20 degrees all the way up to plus 70 degrees. Really good flexible mounting locations there are going to allow us to get this mounted on our dash where we want it. Unlike a time delayed system where we have to actually wait for the brake controller to activate where it slowly ramps up, we can get maximum braking power out of the Voyager whenever we need it. We have our manual override lever there. It's going to allow us to manually apply the brakes on our trailer as we head down the road, in case we need to.

Up to whatever we've got our gain set at. Now, the gain is going to be the amount of braking force that's sent to the rear of our trailer. You can see turned all the way up it gives us a dark red color. The lower we've got it set the lower or closer to green that color's going to go. You see as I slowly turn it up we go from a green to a yellow to kind of a pink and to that really dark red indicating maximum power.

You change that depending on the weight of your trailer. Also, road conditions and things like that can have some effect. We want to set this up as high as we can without actually locking up the wheels on our trailer. For the level adjustment that we have here on our other side we'll start with it rotated all the way clockwise, so all the way forward. We want to apply the brakes in our vehicle. We'll start moving that counterclockwise until we see that LED start to change. Now if we have a very light yellow color that's going to give us very easy braking activation, so it doesn't activate very rapidly or very forcefully. As the weight of our trailer increases as compared to the weight of our truck we need to adjust that level up slightly. You can see here you've got more of a moderate red for the mid setting. Then we can go to the darker red, to the very aggressive setting. The first thing we need to do is get our shroud out of the way that's going to be underneath this side panel, which we're going to remove. This is going to have a bolt located right up here on the side. You're going to have one on each side. That's what it's going to look like. We'll take the one out here on the drivers side, and do the same thing on our passenger side. Now, on our passenger side we want to reach up right up at the very tip of this shroud, just about there. If we pull out on it you see there's a little clip that we separate that allow this side to come free. We should have another clip there and then we'll get the last one right over there on that corner and pull it out. We'll set that aside. We'll put if back in once we get our brake controller in. We'll come right down here to the bottom and we just want to carefully work this out and separate our clips. We've got our little cubby hole that's right behind that rectangular shaped hole. It should be plugged right into the back of that. You can see it right there. What we're going to do is just allow that to come down. We'll pull it right over here. You can see we can pull it out right here to where it'll be easy to connect to. We'll get our dashboard reassembled here. Cubby hole's going to go back in. The key with getting this put back together is just making sure that our clips line up. Now let's put our shroud back in place. Now we're ready to grab our pigtail, line it up and slide it in. You want to hear that audible click. Then you'll be able to push and pull on it without it coming apart. That way we'll know we have a good connection. Next we need to just set that aside for now. Let's get our bracket mounted. We'll position our bracket where we want it. We have the option of coming up here on the dashboard if we choose to. Really, wherever's convenient as long as we're staying within that range of motion that we talked about. We use the provided screws and get that mounted in position. You always want to check behind, make sure you're not going to screw into anything, any wires or anything like that. All right, perfect. Now we'll just take our pigtail coming off the Voyager there, clip it right into our add on pigtail, and we're ready to use the two holes that are in each side of it. We'll mount it to our bracket. I like to keep them up as high as possible, so I'm going to use the top set of holes on each side there. It'll still give us plenty of room to adjust our level and our gain, but it'll be down there out of the way. Just use our provided screws there. All right, now we'll just plug in our trailer tester and make sure that the light comes on. You can see that we're indicating with the green light, indicating that our trailer is in fact connected. Once we've confirmed our brake controller is working properly we'll go ahead and just wrap our pigtail up here with a zip tie. Nice little metal bracket under our dash here should do a great job of keeping that up and out of the way so we won't have to worry about it hitting our feet. Of course trim off our excess there. With everything working properly that's going to complete today's installation of the Tekonsha Voyager trailer brake controller, part number 39510 on our 2016 Ford F-150.

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.

I pull a small camper with a VW Touareg. The electronics in the T'reg don't play well with top of the line brake controllers. I spoke with the Tekonsha rep and he recommended the Voyager. The Voyager is a very simple controller, easy to install, and works well. I don't miss the fancy display. ICS 271698

Awesome controller. We use them often our our equipment. Only problem we had this install, was locating the right wiring to tie into the brake circuit. New 2014 Chevy express van. Chevy only uses a 5 volt switched supply at the brake pedal. Ended up locating and tied into the brake light circuit for the 12 volts needed for controller to see the brakes are applied. 150511

I loved this controller so much I put one in my other vehicle. For the price you can't beat it. Just don't forget you need the wiring harness item 7894 ($$) to go with it. Pros It is really easy to dial in how much brake you need. I dial it down when I get off the highway to prevent the trailer from pulling hard and increase it for higher speeds. Also you can pinch the lever the engage the trailer brakes without braking your vehicle to see just how much braking the trailer (only) is doing. Also there is an led indicator that turns from green to pink to red as more break is applied and serves as a good visual indicator. 333539

Thus far it works great. I have a 2008 Toyota Sienna and use it for a tent trailer (pop up trailer). After researching and watching etrailer.com's video on installing a brake controller on a Sienna I found that the price was best here AND the kit to install it was without comparison. Really--I went to an auto parts store and tried to figure out what all I would need to create my own kit and it was exhausting. So great to follow what they have put together here. I took the trailer out after installing this brake controller and it was great. Braking felt like braking normally (with no trailer hooked up). I would recommend this product as well as the other parts and kits suggested by the youtube video. 511079

I installed this controller on a 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Installation was easy (as I had also purchased the adapter cable for my Jeep), adjustment instructions were clear and the controller worked perfectly. 79126


Comments

Hi...am also looking at installing on my 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Am in Australia....not sure what the adjuster cable is and whether it is something I should mention to my Auto Electrician. Are you able to clarify?

-- comment by: Terry B - 08/07/2013

The adapter cable referenced is for plugging the brake controller into a port under the dash that Jeep provides on models with the factory towing package, in this case, it is part 3045-P. Please note this port will only be present and active on models equipped with a factory 7-Way trailer connector at the rear. These harnesses are also developed and designed for North American Market vehicles and if your Grand Cherokee was built for sale in Australia, it may not be compatible and could potentially damage the vehicle electrical system. In that case, it may be best to have the installer hard-wire in the brake controller and use an ETBC7 kit to complete the install. It would give the installer all the parts needed to add a 7-Way and wire the Voyager in.

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

2015 Ford F-150

We own a 2015 Ford F150 SuperCrew, 3.5 EcoBoost with Max Tow package. Of course, equipped like this, the truck came with a factory-installed, integral brake controller. That's good news. The bad news is that there various internet forums report there to be an unusually high failure rate of these factory controllers. So, being a bit paranoid about being out in the middle-of-nowhere in our truck and travel trailer and suddenly having (a) locked brakes, or (b) no brakes at all, I decided to install a high quality aftermarket controller. Based on company reputation and prior experience with Tekonsha products, I selected the P3 and proper 'plug and play' wiring harness. Following Tekonsha's instructions as well as vehicle-specific on-line videos, I found the installation to be super easy. I elected NOT to take the truck to the Ford dealer to have the computer re-flashed for the absence of the factory controller. Now, each time the truck is started, I have to click "OK" to clear the 'TRAILER BRAKE FAULT" message... to me that's no big deal. Also, when compared side-by-side, the Ford controller seems flimsy and cheap, whereas the P3 has a quality feel, fit and finish. Wanting the controller to be easy to see and easy to reach, I chose to install the P3 on top of the dash. So, I am delighted with the Tekonsha P3 and - as always - with etrailer's service. 402275

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

Easy install on my 2010 F 150 XLT. There are 2 possible locations for the trailer wiring harness if your vehicle did not come equipped with the mfg brake control. Consult owners manual. My harness was located below steering colum behind lower dash. I routed my harness to the left side behind the parking brake release lever. You may have to remove the outer sleeve of the factory harness depening on your vehicle. Mounted the mounting bracket with double sided foam tape and predrilled holes before screwing in place. Mounted the Pod brake control and tested. 5 stars! 557183

I ordered the Tekonsha Voyager brake controller and harness for my truck from etrailer, received shipping confirmation within hours and the controller arrived in three days. I googled installation brake controller for my particular truck and etrailer had an excellent video which made it very easy to install. Setting the level and power were also easy as per Tekonsha’s instructions. All in all it was a good experience and the controller will be a good match for my trailer. A good product from a good company at an excellent price. 460310

This is a good product it does the job very well but if you have different trailers I would recommend getting one that will remember a couple different settings. 565456

If you tow multiple trailers, I recommend a Tekonsha P3 part # 90195. The p3 lets you customize 5 storable settings for multiple trailers, varying loads or different drivers.

Seems perfect. I'll put 5000 miles on it over the next month. The three controls are easy to adjust without looking, though I'd prefer the side mounted knobs to stick out a little more, so you can grab them easier. 221933

They work great. I actually had the controller stolen out of the truck in Albuquerque this summer and replaced it with the same unit. \Unfortunately, I had to buy it quickly traveling so I paid more at a trailer supply store.At least the thieves didnt get the truck! A friend in the same parking lot wasnt as fortunate.

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

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.

Appears to work so far but too early to tell for a long term assessment. Liked that my vehicle had a ready plug under the dash so no wiring hassles were experienced. 89499


Comments

Thanks Patrick and I like it just fine although have used it only once. Is actuated by the use of the brake pedal and can be utilized manually by moving the lever horizontally to the right. Much of the credit should be given to the gal that took my call with the order. Originally was going the cheap route with no proportioning on the TBC and she indicated that I would be very disappointed if more money wasnt tendered for a proportioning TBC. It always helps when your sales staff has technical knowledge on the products.

2009 Ford F-150

installed on a 2009 F-150 everything was as advertised. It was plug and play. My truck had the wire plug behind the dash so was easy to hook up. I installed it in the hole below the coin holder. To reach the pre-wired plug you have to remove the panel anyway. I don't like any wires showing or anything I might hit with my leg. So did not mount it on the lower dash. You have to pull the plastic box out to unplug the connector. So just cut off the back of the box off and run the connector through the hole and connect to the controller. This way you can remove the controller anytime you want. Also you can see the readout much easier then mounting it on the lower dash. See pics 333617

2015 Ford F-150

Plug into truck harness and then brake controller, works perfect. Just like every single trailer wiring purchase I have previously made from etrailer. Fast shipping and free expert advice. Great company to deal with. E Trailer is bar none the very best merchant I deal with on the web. The 2015 ford F150 trailer harness plug is up in the dash plugged into a recess. I never would have found it but the e trailer team told me where to look. Even the Ford dealer could not find it! Dealer wanted to take the whole instrument panel out. E trailer guys said just pull up on the panel adjacent to steering wheel and there it was. Saved me an expensive dealer visit and I hooked it up myself in about 10 minutes. Thank you e trailer! 181725

I chose the Tekonsha Voyager inertia activated brake controller because i wanted the inertia system rather than the time delay system but needed it at a reasonable price. I have not tried it yet but it checked out electrically. I have two minor issues: it did not come with a wiring adapter. Maybe none of them do but one is needed to make wiring easy. Fortunately, I ordered one at the same time. The other issue is that it requires the metal bracket for mounting but on my vehicle it sticks out too far and I bang my knee on it when I slide behind the wheel. I think I can use double backed tape for mounting and still have it positioned so the inertia part will work okay. 290689

  • Installation of Brake Controller on 2017 Chevy 3500 to Replace Factory Integrated Brake Controller
  • On your 2017 Chevy 3500 Duramax ltz, you can absolutely connect your Tekonsha Voyager Trailer Brake Controller # 39510 using the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers # 3016. This adapter plugs into the 4-pin connector in your vehicle's junction box. The box is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, just above the carpeting. Because you have the integrated controller you will need to bypass it by cutting the blue wire on the # 3016

  • Wiring and Brake Controller Installation on a 2016 Chevy Express Van
  • You are definitely on the right track with parts # 118392, # ETBC7, # 39510, and # 20127 in your cart. I really only have one extra part that I believe you will need to add - part # ETBCXW which is extra wire for the # ETBC7. It gives you 10 extra feet of the wiring that you will need for the brake controller and 12V power for your 7-Way. Although the Prodigy P2 # 90885 is a great brake controller, the Voyager, part # 39510 is not a bad controller itself. The main great thing about it

  • Installation of Brake Controller on 2015 Ford Transit T250 With Factory Tow Package
  • Since you already have the factory tow package in your 2015 Ford Transit T250, I recommend the Tekonsha Voyager # 39510 along with the harness # 20127 to give you your basic controller. This will need to be hardwired as your vehicle doesn't have the dash adapter. I recommend using a circuit tester like # PTW2993 to test wires for function before splicing. If there are no brake controller output wires and 12V power lined under your dash, then to hardwire your controller you will need

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for 1999 Chevy Silverado
  • The correct brake controller harness for your 1999 Chevy Silverado is the part # 3025-P. 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. Proportional means that it can sense the amount of braking your truck will be doing and will apply the same intensity to the trailer's brakes.

  • Are Trailer Brake Controllers Vehicle-Specific
  • Trailer brake controllers such as the Tekonsha Voyager # 39510 are not vehicle-specific but the parts required to install one can be specific to a year/make/model vehicle. For instance, many pickups have a port under the dash to allow quick plug-in installation of the Voyager, such as wiring adapter # 22292 which works for Fords. To find the correct harness you can enter your vehicle info into our Fit Guide. You can also always hardwire a controller using our all-inclusive kit # ETBC7.

  • Is There a Plug and Play Proportional Brake Controller for a 2004 Ford F-150?
  • If your 2004 Ford F-150 has a factory 7-way then there is one option for a Tekonsha proportional brake controller in the range you wanted, the Voyager # 39510, which you would plug into your truck with Wiring Adapter # 3035-P, as you can see in the attached video link. Should your F-150 have the factory 4-way instead you would need the same parts along with Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer Connector # 118247; you can see how this installs in the other video link I added for you.

  • Troubleshooting Tekonsha Voyager # 39510 Showing Constant 12V Power on Blue wire
  • If you are getting 12V of constant power on your brake controller output wire then you need to cut the blue wire from your Voyager about 6" away from the controller and see if it still has constant 12V power. If it does then there is an issue with the wiring to the controller or your Adapter # 3050-P (if you have the factory tow package). If there isn't constant 12V power then there is an issue with the wire from your brake controller to your 7-Way. You can either try finding the issue

If you have 7 inch brakes you should be getting 6.3-6.8 amps at 12 volts on the brake output circuit.
