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

9030 Tekonsha Voyager Electric Brake Control





Tekonsha Custom Wiring Adapter for Trailer Brake Controllers - Dual Plug In
part number: 3023-P

Install your electric trailer brake controller quickly and easily with this custom wiring adapter. Simply plug one end of the adapter into your brake controller and then plug the other end into the built-in ports beneath your vehicle's dash.

Features:

  • Plug-in wiring adapter allows for quick, simple installation of your electric trailer brake controller
  • No cutting or splicing required
    • Custom connector end plugs into the built-in ports beneath the dash of your vehicle
    • Other end plugs into the back of your electric brake controller
  • Compatible with proportional brake controllers from Tekonsha
    • Brake controller must have built-in plug for adapter to connect - will not work on controllers with pigtail wiring harnesses
  • Limited 1-year warranty


Note: To illuminate your vehicle and trailer brake lights when you activate the manual override on your brake controller, use in conjunction with the Tekonsha brake controller converter with 7-way adapter (30235-P - sold separately). Required for use in the state of California.


Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

To install your electric brake controller, you need to connect the wiring of the controller to your vehicle. Certain auto manufacturers offer pre-wired options, typically known as tow packages, wherein wiring is run for you from the dash to the trailer connector on the back of your vehicle. When this is done, a port is installed at your dash so that you can easily plug in a brake controller.


This adapter plugs into the ports on your vehicle's built-in brake control wiring harness. The harness is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, and it is taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal.


No hardwiring is required to install this adapter. After you plug it into the factory port, you simply plug the other end of the adapter directly into your electric trailer brake controller. Because there are no wires to connect, installation is not permanent. You can unplug and remove your brake controller at any time to transfer it to another vehicle or securely stow it away.

Video Transcript for Tekonsha Voyager Brake Controller Manufacturer Review

Congratulations. And thank you for owning one of the most sophisticated trailer braking systems available today. Whether you tow for work or play, you can depend on Tekonsha to enhance your towing experience by working to make sure both your tow vehicle and the trailer it is pulling slow down and stop at the same time. Over the next several minutes we will show you some important set up steps to be sure you have the smoothest braking experience possible. If you have questions or need more specific information, please refer to the installation and owners guide enclosed with your controller. If this is your first installation, please listen for a moment for some important tips. Performance braking controls are directional.

This means that the back of the control must be positioned toward the front of the vehicle or in the direction of travel. Locate the mounting position on the face of the dash in the most convenient position possible and within easy reach. Many brake controls have a primary operating range, nose up or nose down. Refer to your installation instructions for the range that applies to your control. Most newer vehicles have a brake control vehicle plug in point located in the primary electrical harness under the dash. Use the vehicles specific wiring harness, sometimes provided by the automobile manufacturer or available separately from your brake control supplier, to connect the break control wiring. Then plug it in under the dash.

If your vehicle is older, or does not provide a plug in point, use the generic wiring instructions provided with the brake control or see your dealer for installation details. If you have questions, please refer to the owners guide. The first step in positioning the sensor for a Tekonsha Voyager brake control is to park the tow vehicle and trailer on as level a surface as possible. With the trailers connector connected to the tow vehicle, the first thing that you will notice is the bi-colored LED on the front of the control will be glowing green. This will let you know that you have a complete circuit between the tow vehicle and the trailer. Next, find the power control knob on the right side of the control and turn it clockwise toward the front of the vehicle until the maximum setting is reached. Next, press the brake pedal and hold it. Look at the bi-colored LED on the control. If the light is green in color, find the level knob on the left side of the control and rotate it counter clockwise toward the front of the vehicle until the LED begins to pulsate between green and orange. You will want to move back into the green by rotating the level knob on the left side of the control clockwise toward the rear of the vehicle just a little at a time. What you are doing here is setting the sensor at the transition point just between the green and the flashing red. Tow the trailer at about 25 miles per hour and do a couple of slow speed stops as if coming to a stop sign. And notice the feel of the trailer.

Does it seem to pull a little at the end of the stop? If it does, your sensor setting is a little too aggressive. Simply move the level wheel clockwise very slightly and repeat the stop. Repeat the procedure until you feel the truck and trailer brake smoothly together. If you feel a pushing sensation from the trailer it is because the opposite has occurred. And you have a delayed setting on the sensor control. Simply move the level knob counter clockwise slightly into a more aggressive position. Once this is done the control is set and should not have to be reset until such a time that the road conditions change or the trailer weight changes significantly. Keep in mind that the power knob should never be used to fine tune your control. Harsh, aggressive braking at slow speed stops is usually caused by an improper sensor setting. After you have driven several miles and the trailer brakes have warmed up, you may want to repeat this process to further refine your stops. Please refer to the owners guide on warming the brakes. Because every trailer is different, your brake control needs to learn the weight of the trailer and condition of the trailer brakes. This is required to determine the optimum power necessary during an emergency stop without trailer wheel lock up. First, rotate the knob on the right side of the control so it is in the 12 o'clock position. Tow the trailer on as level a surface as possible and attain a constant speed of between 20 and 25 miles per hour and engage the manual slide bar found in the front of the control.

You will notice that the bi-colored LED will turn from green to orange to red indicating an increase of current to the brakes. Hold this for a few seconds and release. If the trailer brakes did not lock up, increase the power by turning the knob on the right side of the control clockwise toward t he front of the vehicle and repeating the manual engagement. Repeat these steps until such a time that the trailer brakes are just below wheel lock up. If at anytime the brakes do lock during this procedure, reduce the power by turning the knob counter clockwise toward the rear of the vehicle. Now the setting has been made so that the power output is just below wheel lock up. It is that easy. For information to fine tune your system, for optimal performance, check your owners guide for details.

With the purchase of a new Dodge Ram 1500, I had a difficult time finding a wiring harness that adapts to the new Dodge wiring. I found this great plug in adapter on Etrailer.com and ordered it and a new Tekonsha Prodigy P3 brake controller. Etrailer shipped my order quickly. Before I installed the wiring harness and brake controller, I watched the video on Etrailer; very helpful! Installation was easy! I'll definitely use Etrailer again when I need something for our travel trailer towing. 82828


Comments

My wiring harness and brake controller have worked just fine! I like the smooth braking afforded by the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 controller much better than the brake controller I had on my previous tow vehicle.A hint for new Ram 1500 buyers without delivered brake controllers: the wiring harness connector on the truck is tucked way under the dash. See Etrailers video! Once you find the harness connectors on your truck, hooking up the harness and brake controller from Etrailer is a snap!

This wire harness for the 2013 Ram. was perfect.. I installed the P2 and wire harness in about 20 min. I had seen an online video which showed the exact location of plug ins, and it was simple... But the best part of this purchase, was the help from everyone at etrailer.com... My order was processed quickly, and followed up by not one, but two employees to make sure I had what I needed... I will order form them again, and recommend to my friends.. Thanks again toPatrick, Bridget, and George at etrailer 97243


Comments

All is good... have not fully understood the adjustments, and sometimes either feels like brake might be dragging a bit, or other times needs a lot of brake pressure to stop truck and trailer... i assume it is a matter of correct adjustment.. but still very happy with the service provided when I placed my original order.

Donald F - 09/01/2014

Thanks for the follow up. You might check the adjustment on your brake controller and possibly dial it back a little bit. You can do this while using the manual override and the dial on the top depending on your trailer braking needs. You might also check to see if you have the boost activated but might not need it (if the brakes seem to be dragging), or need to increase the boost, if you need more braking power. I have linked a video for you that shows how the boots and output adjustments can be made. Boost adjustments are shown at about the 5 minute mark of this video, and the adjustments of braking power can be seen at about 5:30 of the video.

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.

I plugged it in, just as described on a YouTube video, and all seems perfect. There were no specific instructions in the package for my application (2013 Ram 1500). In defense however, the connectors are not interchangeable so there was really no way to connect it wrong. Plenty of extra length wire to work with. The worst part was getting under the dash! 83644

I bought a Prodigy 2 electric brake controller and cable adapter for my pickup. I read the literature provided and watched the video on the website on how to install it. From the time I opened the box to do the installation until I shut the door on a completed installation was less than 30 minutes. Very satisfied with the product, installation instructions, and fast shipping. etrailer should be everyones first stop for trailer products. 140813

A simple install. The online videos provided by etrailer.com are fantastic. I use them at work a lot and I finally had a job at home where I could buy the parts from etrailer.com and repay them a little! I installed a controller on a 2013 Dodge 1500. The dash panel just above the park brake release pops out and makes a perfect hole for mounting the controller. 189410

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


Comments

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.

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 cable ended up being the perfect solution for my 2014 RAM 1500's aftermarket electric brake controller - plug-and-play into existing RAM connectors under the dash, easy installation. I discovered the hard way that plug-and-play electric brake controller cables made for pre-2013 RAM 1500's are incompatible with the 2013+ trucks, even though they still can plug right in to the underdash connector. Turns out that the red wire function (typically brake pedal actuation) in that connector has changed so no longer provides the brake actuation signal needed by the aftermarket controller. This new cable has the necessary second connector to pick up brake pedal actuation signal for the brake controller from a second under-dash connector. 184387

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

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

Patrick. I received the controller yesterday afternoon. With it came a wiring harness (plug in adapter) and the pin and clip for the trailer hitch receiver. I am rating it as excellent at this point just from looks alone. My first impression upon opening the box was, "wow, this is neat"!. The overall general appearance is very pleasing and the design suggests durability. I do not as yet have the unit installed, thereore, I am unable to provide any written judgement about the product performance. If however, the functional aspects are as as good as the overall design/makeup of the controller, then I will certainly be a satisfied customer . Thanks. Charlie 95124

The easiest installation ever. Start to finish 10 minutes thats with trailer hookup. Installed mount and controler then hooked up two wires, set controler to trailer type and drove away for a test drive. Everything worked perfectly. New 2014 RAM 1500. Dealer said could not be done, whatever. 146413


Comments

John,Did you have the factory installed brake controller, and if so, did you have to disconnect it, or have the dealer do something with the computer to disable it? I just ordered a 2015 RAM 2500 and it comes with a factory installed controller. I am betting the 2014 models are the same, both in the 1500 and 2500, as I think they had the factory installed controller.

I checked with my contacts at Tekonsha, and they informed me that for the 2014 and 2015 Ram pickups 1500, 2500, and 3500's will require that the factory integrated brake controller be disconnected, and the vehicle reprogramed at the dealership prior to installing an aftermarket brake control system. For this application you can use the # 3023-P wiring adapter for a direct plug in installation.

For some reason the 2013 Ram changed the wiring harness and there are very few items out that work for this vehicle. I talked to the dealer and they told me Dodge had not figured out how to make it work and did not have a brake controller available as an accessory for a 2013. I called some local shops and one told me good luck they spent 6 hours trying to get one to work with no luck. I did some research and found this harness and by luck it fit an older model Tekonsha controller that I already had. Just plug into two connections under the dash and it works great. Etrailer got it out to me quick just a day before I had to pick up a camper. 76074

In terms of this brake controller, it may have been an early failure as after hooking it up and following the setup procedure, the LED came on and then, during adjustment, got bright and then went out permanently. I will update this review when I debug the problem more fully. I know my wiring is correct but I may have a 12V feed issue that is causing this. One thing I will say is that overall etrailer.com is outstanding! I do all of my business with them and tell people about how great they are every chance I get. Every aspect of their operation is excellent from technical information and support to customer service. Great company! 132219

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

I installed this in a 2014 Nissan xterra, The xterra has a white plug in under the dash near the computer plug in. This brake controller was very easy to install when used with the plug in wire adapter. I tried the brakes, they worked fine. You do need to fine tune & ADJ the controller, but not a big deal. When the lights are green on the controller you have brakes. E-Trailer sells this as a kit with both items, I think at a fair price. The shipping was fast and it arrived 2 days faster than expected, Thanks George! If I ever need trailer related parts, that will be my first place to look. 248615

After a year, the Tekonsha Voyager is working great. It was easy to install in my 2002 Dodge Ram 1500, what took the most time was my deliberating on the best spot to mount it. The unit is very sensitive to your vehicles loading. So changes in stance under load or unloaded may cause you to have to adjust the unit for more efficient trailer braking, which I needed to effortlessly do the other day while towing. I just needed to remember that. A great product and etrailer is a great company. I was at etrailer online browsing my lastest parts list for my camper trailer just today. CA. 362421

I installed this harness on a 2014 Ram 2500 diesel 4x4 Tradesman. This required locating the two factory-ready female connections on the truck. The larger of the two is located just under the dash about where your right knee would hit. The smaller one is located above the accelerator pedal way up high. Both of mine were wrapped in a sticky grey foam wrap, I guess to keep them from rattling. The harness worked great and after I located both harnesses, the install only took 30 minutes. I would recommend this harness and the Teshonka P3 to anyone looking for a top-end brake control unit. 131882

When I called customer service about the brake controller and wiring adapter I ordered for my 2014 ram 1500, I was concerned about the possibility of having the computer reprogrammed. The rep I talked to, reassured me that I definitely did NOT have to worry about all that. The controller was so simple to install, just two plug-ins and you're good to go!! Sure enough, after I installed it, which took about 5 mins, It works great, with no worries about the computer system!! I highly recommend etrailer.com for their products and awesome customer service!! 253988

Received product this weekend, installed, and tested it. Everything is working great! We have installed this same brake controller on several trucks and it works well. Website was super helpful because we could enter make and model of the truck and it told us which wiring harness to use. On top of that, we had a video to review on exactly how to install it on our truck. Finally, the company sent me an email to follow-up and make sure I had everything I needed. If only every website was so customer service oriented. AWESOME Purchase experience! 356070

Just as described. I had a four pin and that plugged into this wire harness and then I had two wires to run to front of car. Once under the hood there are a few other wires to run to battery and through fire wall into vehicle to connect to a break controller. My local shops wanted over $400 for parts and labor. I saved over $250 doing it myself. It took me about 3 hours. At least an hour was running wires through the fire wall. The engine compartment was very tight near firewall in my 2006 Toyota Sierra. 86763

The Tekonsha custom wiring adapter worked perfectly for my 2013 Dodge Ram 1500. Installation of it and the Tekonsha controller was seamless and only took about 15 minutes. I first priced the Mopar adapter at my local Dodge dealer $268 plus tax, I then checked with etrailer and talked to one of their great product experts. She recommended the Tekonsha adapter and I saved $240 from the Dodge price. Along with the video of installation on their site this was the easiest install I have ever done. 153900

I have installed and used several different types of brake controllers over the years, and this on is hands down the best I have used. Installation is typical, no real issues. I will say that unless you plan to remove your controller often, save the cost for the plug in pig tail and hard wire the unit (I wondered why I needed that part...) The beauty of this unit is the set up-easiest brake controller I have ever set up! Great price and works as advertised... unprecedented! 188411

Plugged directly into my 2014 (Dodge) RAM Tradesman wiring and was easy to set up! I was not happy about having to add the 30235-P Brake Control Converter and 7-Way Adapter Kit required due to California law but did so. This greatly increased the work required, and expense, to complete the install. After having completing it however, the P3 worked great and was easy to set up. I never laid hands on the "manual" brake control lever so, the extra 7-way adapter proved to be superfluous. 428776

I'd had one of these before so ordered for my current install, they're a good controller, however, it's limited to 20º nose down on the install, so it didn't fit my current dash. My mistake, I should have checked before ordering. Decided to order a P3 to replace it, etrailer customer service was awesome, issued an RMA (I hadn't attempted to install it yet, just read the instructions and saw the limitation). I'd deal with this company 100 times out of 100 for my trailer needs! 24628

It is inexpensive for a proportional controller. Unfortunately, there is no way to test it with out having it attached to a trailer. It makes a clicking noise when you apply the brakes or use the manual over ride, so I guess I have it hooked up correctly. I won't be able to test it until I drive across the country to pick up new trailer. You Tube videos are great. I would not have tackled this very time consuming project if it were not for the detailed videos. 263746

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.

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?

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.

Well, the two holes on this hitch where the factory frame bolts go back in place were just too close together by about 1/16th of an inch.. No matter what I did, I couldn't get one side or the other to go back in.. I wound up taking the hitch back off, and drilling / filing one of the holes slightly wider so that the bolts would go in. Once slightly modified, the hitch went on great and is clearly a solid hitch. 184541

Once the TIPM has been reconfigured, and the ITBM has been unplugged, you can use a vehicle specific

  • Is the Tekonsha Wiring Harness # 3023-P Compatible with a 2014 Ram 1500
  • I checked with Tekonsha and they have confirmed that the Tekonsha Custom Wiring Adapter # 3023-P will work on your 2014 Ram 1500. This will also work very well with the Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller part # 90195. I attached an install video for you to check out also.

  • Installation of Reese Brakeman Trailer Brake Controller in 2014 Dodge Ram
  • The trailer brake controller custom wiring adapter that you referenced, Tekonsha part # 3023-P works with all Tekonsha controllers unless they are the hard-wire type like your Brakeman. Based on my research the Brakeman has four hard-wired leads exiting its back rather than a plug to accept the adapter. You can still use the adapter to make the truck-side connection to the under-dash port, and simply cut off the flat connector (that is intended for the rear port on a current Tekonsha

  • Brake Controller Wiring Harness to Instal Draw-Tite Activator # 5500 in 2014 Ram 1500
  • The Brake Controller Wiring Adapter you referenced, part # 3023-P is indeed the correct connector for installing a brake controller in your 2014 Ram 1500. One end of the harness will plug into the rear of your controller, the two connectors on the other end will plug in under the dash as shown in the install video I have linked you to. If your Draw-Tite Activator is an older model that has bare wire leads exiting the back of the controller (no plug), then you would cut off the BLACK (not

  • Does the Tekonsha Wiring Adapter # 3023-P Fit a 2013 Ram 2500
  • I spoke with my contact at Tekonsha and they confirmed that the Custom Wiring Adapter, part # 3023-P, is a fit for your 2013 Dodge Ram 2500. It sounds like you have you located the vehicle’s electric brake control harness connector underneath the dash and left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal (fig. A). It has a 4-pin connector that mates with the one on the adapter. A second 2-pin connector is located just above the brake pedal that

  • Would the Tekonsha Primus Brake Controller and Harness # 3023-P fit a 2013 Dodge Ram 1500
  • The Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter # 3023-P that you referenced would be the correct harness for your 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 and would work with the Tekonsha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller # TK90160. When installed correctly there should be no fault codes on your dashboard and you should not have to worry about having anything reflashed. No diodes would be necessary either, all you would need is the # 3023-P harness and the controller and you would be good. Check out the install

This controller has state of the art technology that will activate your trailer's brakes in proportion to the application of the brakes of your Ram.

  • Brake Controller and Install Harness for a 2015 Dodge Ram 1500
  • On the new Ram trucks you have to use a newer proportional brake controller because of the low voltage stop light circuit that is used on the trucks. If you were to try and use your Hayes controller it wouldn't ever sense the vehicle brake applying. For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. 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

  • Brake Controller Wiring Harness for a 2015 Ram 1500
  • The 2015 Ram 1500 does not use the same 2-plug brake controller connector as the 2013 and 2014 Rams. It has its own special harness, # 3024-P. All you will need is this harness to install a Tekonsha brake controller on your 2015 Ram 1500. To illuminate your vehicle and trailer brake lights when you activate the manual override on your brake controller, use in conjunction with the Tekonsha brake controller converter with 7-way adapter (# 30235-P - sold separately).

  • Tekonsha Brake Controller Wiring Harness for a 2014 Ram 1500
  • Your Dad's 1500 must be a 2012 and the harness must be # 3021-P. Dodge changed the electrical system on the Ram trucks starting in the 2013 model year to what they call the Powernet. It is a multiplex type of system and all that means for you is that you need a different wiring harness. Wiring harness # 3023-P is correct for your 2014 Ram. I have linked a video showing how it installs. If you live in or tow through California you will also need # 30235-P. It will adapt your 7-way

  • The 2013 Dodge Ram has a unique multiplex wiring system that requires a special harness. If you do NOT live in California then you will need harness # 3023-P. But if you do live in California you will need harness # 30235-P which includes a special adapter that will light up the truck brake lights when the brake controller is used (required by law in California). For a mounting bracket for your P3, you can use # TK5906.

  • Trailer Brakes Only Work with Manual Override Using Reese Pod Electric Brake Controller in 2014 Ram
  • It sounds like you have the red wired connected to the wrong circuit. You need to find the circuit from the cold side of your stop light switch that only has power when the brake pedal is pressed. Use a circuit tester, like # 3808, to check for power. If you'd rather just use the plug in adapter it's part # 3023-P.

  • Can Integrated Brake Controller of 2014 Ram 2500 Be Bypassed
  • You can bypass the factory brake controller on a 2014 Dodge Ram. To install an aftermarket controller you will need to disconnect the integrated trailer brake module (ITBM). Doing so will turn on a warning lamp in the dash. In order to disconnect the ITBM and not get the warning lamp, your local Dodge dealer will have to reconfigure the TIPM (Totally Integrated Power Module), of the truck. Once the TIPM has been reconfigured, and the ITBM has been unplugged, you can use a vehicle specific

  • Will Brake Controller Wiring Harness 3023-P Fit a 2014 Ram and Voyager Brake Controller
  • Yes, the 3023-P brake controller wiring harness does fit the 2014 Ram trucks and it will work with your Voyager brake controller. If you happen to live in California you will also need adapter # 30235-P that turns on the truck brake lights when you use the manual override on the brake control. This is required by law in California.
