Easy-to-Access Brake Controller

Tekonsha POD Controls and Components

The Tekonsha POD is designed to mount in any direction, and it's especially suited for mounting on near-vertical dashes. All the controls are on the front of the module, so you can still access them with the controller tucked away in a convenient place.


Tekonsha POD review

Braking Output

Braking output is the maximum amount of power that will be applied to your trailer's brakes. How much braking output you need is determined by the weight of your trailer; a heavier trailer will need more power to bring it to a stop. You want to set the braking output as high as you can without locking up the brakes. Once you've set up the brake controller the first time, you shouldn't need to adjust the settings until the trailer load changes, you switch trailers, or road conditions change. Use the thumbwheel on the side to change the braking output level. The output setting will appear as a number on the digital display, with a higher number indicating higher braking power.


Manual Override

The Tekonsha POD keeps the manual override within easy reach on the front of the module, great for stopping sway or controlling your trailer's momentum in emergencies. Push the slide-bar lever to activate the trailer's brakes and brake lights without you having to apply the brakes on your tow vehicle, perfect for limiting trailer movement while you re cruising.


Quick, Simple Installation

Because inertia plays no role in the functioning of this controller, you do not have to mount the unit at any particular angle. Your mounting options are limitless, with the controller designed with all of the controls on the front of the module so you can access them even if it's mounted upside down.


If your vehicle already has a plug-in brake controller wiring harness, just connect the unit to it. Otherwise, you will need to purchase a vehicle-specific wiring harness (sold separately) to plug into. If a harness is unavailable for your vehicle, hardwiring will be necessary.


Installation Accessories

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.


Note: If a custom brake control wiring adapter is not available for your vehicle, a 20-amp circuit breaker (sold separately) may be required for installation.


Time-Delayed Braking

What is time-delayed braking

The Tekonsha POD comes equipped with time-delayed braking. Every time you apply the brakes in your vehicle, a signal is sent - via the brake switch - to the POD. The controller then sends power out to your trailer brakes to activate them with an intensity set by you, at a rate determined by you. The amount of braking power (output) can be adjusted to suit your preference, the road conditions, the type of trailer, and the weight of your load. To determine which levels are best for your application, test your towing setup and choose what feels right.

Is this right for you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Just need a basic controller that gets the job done
  • Have a hard time finding a spot to mount a controller in line with the direction of travel

No, if you:

  • Haul a trailer with more than 2 axles or one that has hydraulic brakes
  • Have issues with your trailer brakes locking up


Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers
part number: 3064-P

Install your electric 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 harness beneath your vehicle's dash.

Features:

  • Wiring adapter eases installation of your electric brake controller
  • Custom connector end plugs into the built-in port beneath the dash of your vehicle
  • Other end plugs into the back of your electric brake controller
    • Compatible time-delayed brake controllers: Draw-Tite Activator I (5100), Draw-Tite Activator II (5500), Draw-Tite Activator III (5520) and Tekonsha PowerTrac (39523)

Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

This adapter plugs into the 5-pin connector on your vehicle's built-in brake control wiring harness. The harness is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal.


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.

I haven't had this brake controller installed yet, but it looks like it's fairly straight forward and easy to do, even for someone that's not very mechanically inclined. We'll see how it goes. I received the brake controller device and the wiring device in minimum time, very quick to arrive!!

The brake controller worked excellent, never a problem.



by: jim a06/09/2015

We have a Honda Ridgeline and needed this for our camper trailer. It was nice ordering the specific plug in wire for the Ridgeline and therefore eliminating hard wiring, just plugged it in. It was rough getting to the factory plug under the dash by the emergency brake petal switch. My hands are not small enough, ha ha. But success was had. Plugged into the controller and mounted it and u-wall-a. It works the way it is suppose to, I like that. A good quality unit that does what it is suppose to. thanks.



by: Michael B.03/08/2019

Very happy with this product. It fit nicely in my truck and plugged right into the factory wiring harness. Total installation time was under an hour. Easy to adjust, and works perfectly with my 5th wheel trailer. I simply pulled out the little storage cubby from the dash, cut the back off, slid the controller in, bolted it together, and stuck it all back in the dash. Looks and works great.



by: Tom05/21/2021

Worked out perfectly for me, super easy installation with adapter harness. Work's flawlessly, easy one hand gain control with control's on front. My truck had nice cubby it fit in so out of the way and seamless look. Thanks for a great product and service.



by: Mike06/26/2013

I have a Toyota Tacoma (06). I had the controller installed in less than five minutes. One minute to gather the tools: drill/bits, screw driver, and tape. I thought tape would be helpful to hold the ground screw to the driver given the tight are under the dash. One minute to drill the ground hole. One minute to install the ground screw. One minute to plug in the cables and fish the wire under the stirring wheel to allow for the controller to be mounted in the storage area found on Tacoma trucks dash. I guess I was wrong. It only took four minutes. I did not need to put the tools away I was off to do other projects. I rate the product as good because I have not tried it on the trailer yet.



by: Patricia02/21/2024

The brake controller we purchased and had professionally installed works perfectly. We had it installed in our RV for use when towing a large vehicle trailer. It's reliable and simple. It was a great purchase!



by: Bill G.06/04/2017

I received my purchase very quickly.
I
just installed the control and wire harness today. Installation was easy, all you need are basic hand tools and a drill with a small bit.
Haven't had chance to test it out yet but, when I do I'll update.



by: Rolando Torres07/11/2013

Easy to install in my Toyota-Tacoma 2012. I pull my Travel Trailer and this break controller worked very well and with just a little bit adjustment. Also this item was shipped very fast.

I've installed 3 plug in Tekonsha adapters for 3 different vehicles and found them all to be to specifications making the installation a breeze



by: Caleb 02/07/2024

The controller was a great option for our 2021 forest river FSX and gave me plenty of control over the brakes. It does require a adjustment time to time but has always worked when brakes are applied. The setup and installation were a breeze and has worked for many trips.



by: Steven K.06/05/2018

Thanks to etrailer’s video “Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee”, the installation of a Tekonsha PowerTrac controller on my 2003 Jeep was very straight forward (and I’m not a car guy!). Like in the video, I used the wiring kit (#5506). I forgot to order a pigtail wiring harness but was able to pick one up locally. Took the trailer out last weekend and the brakes worked great.



by: David 02/09/2024

I ordered everything to install hitch an and 7 pin plug. Everything went great. Parts were all perfect and instructions easy to follow.



by: Tim B.05/10/2013

The control works great. Nice incremental application of wheel from nothing to hard on! Led light goes from green to red also in incremental degrees. Installation was a snap in my 2008 F150 with tow package. Just Plug in the control clip and the other end in the terminal above and to the right of the computer check terminal. Rather than have it below my dash I opted for the cove below the lighter. Etrailer did a nice job of getting out to me right away and kept me informed where this was at all the way to my door. Good Job!



by: JM07/04/2016

Product arrived quickly and installed very easily. Plug and play with the correct adapter (3035-P Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers - Ford, Lincoln, Mercury) for a 2001 Ford F-150. Controller is very easy to set the braking on your trailer.



by: Fred02/27/2024

If you want to mount your controller at the center of your dash the harness will reach it but not long enough to hide wires under the dash,just to darn short



by: Jon W.05/15/2017

I ordered the powertrac with the 22292, 2011 ford F150 wiring adapter, It works great. 15 mins, and I had everything ready to go. It is a little sensitive to adjust but ones you get the feel for it, it takes no time to adjust. very happy with this unit, I would recommend this unit to everyone.



by: Rick08/25/2018

Installed on 2003 Toyota Tundra with the factory tow package. Installation was a breeze with the included vehicle specific wiring adapter. It took me about 45 minutes total. Looks professionally installed. Easy to use. Set the adjustment for your specific trailer and go!



by: Timothy 02/04/2024

Same as the adapter plug , just mount , plug and play.



by: Arthur01/15/2023

Actually, I haven’t used it. I have an original Tekonsha that I have used for about 16 years with 3 previous cars and trailers and it is still working fine. It gives me much more information about the operation of the trailer brakes than the model I purchased from you. Since that controller is very old and yours was not very expensive, I decided to keep it as an emergency spare. Thanks for Checking,



by: Judy 10/31/2023

Had a perfect place to install this cute compact controller. Easy to install-YouTube helped-and works great!



by: Titus T.03/05/2017

Didn't take long to get once I ordered it. Very easy to install. I used the video to help with the install. Can't wait to start camping. Would definitely use etrailer.com again and will recommend it to friends and family.



by: Otto G12/05/2020

Very easy installation in about twenty minutes. Connected effortlessly to both the brake controller and the truck wiring.



by: Carl05/15/2023

the controller has great reviews, I got it because my factory controller wasn't working well with the new camper that has electric/hydraulic brakes and I was experiencing a 5 second lag for the trailer brakes to come on. this controller works better with a 2 to 3 second lag, need to try a couple different combos on settings, have the boost at 3 (per recommendations) and gain at 2.5 and under hard braking it locks up the trailer tires. going to try boost on 2 and bump up the gain and see if that works better.



by: Greg 10/10/2023

Brake controller works great. Just have to get it adjusted to the application. Simple to do.

  • Using Aftermarket Trailer Brake Controller on 2014 Chevy Silverado with Factory Brake Controller
  • It is not at all uncommon for owners of trucks with factory brake controllers to switch back to the aftermarket units like the Tekonsha PowerTrac # 39523. Convenience is great but solid performance is much better! If you have a Silverado 1500 you can use a quick-connect brake controller adapter # 3016 to plug in a unit such as the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 # 90885, which is among the most reliable and easy to use proportional controllers we offer, to the under-dash port.

  • Trailer Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2012 Ford Expedition with Factory Tow Package
  • There basically two types of brake controllers: time delay and proportional. Time delay controllers, like # 39523 that you have referenced, send back a pre-set amount of voltage over a certain amount of time which can be adjusted. It can take some time determining the best set up for any given trailer when using a time delay controller and there is more wear and tear on both the vehicle and the trailer. The benefit is that time-delay controllers do not have many mounting restrictions. Proportional

  • Time-Delayed Brake Controller Recommendation to Match Tekonsha Wiring on Truck
  • Tekonsha does have their PowerTrac # 39523 time-delayed controller but before you give up on proportional controllers I recommend checking out the Primus IQ # TK90160 because it's a more basic setup than the Prodigy P3 but you still get the control and accuracy of a proportional setup. Either of the controllers mentioned above will plug right into the Tekonsha wiring you have on your vehicle. Attached are review videos of each controller for you to check out.

  • 2014 GMC Savana Van Brake Controller Stoplight Circuit Location
  • The red wire from the brake controller will need to get run to the stoplight switch of the brake on your 2014 GMC Savana Van.

  • Where Is Factory Trailer Brake Controller Port On 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe W/ Factory Tow Package?
  • The factory trailer brake controller port on your 2021 Chevrolet Tahoe is located underneath the dash just to the left of the steering wheel. It will be taped to another harness so it may take a bit of looking to find. Keep in mind that if your Tahoe does not have the factory tow package, the connector may not be there and you would need to hardwire a controller. At this time (5/30/2021) the only plug-in adapter confirmed to fit is the Curt Custom Wiring Adapter for Trailer Brake Controllers

  • No Power To Brake Controller With Pedal Pressed Using Factory Harness on 2020 Chevy Silverado
  • It sounds like you have a few of the wires mixed up. I don't know what colors the factory harness uses but the white colors on most brakes controllers will be as follows: That said, you would also want to check the third brake light fuse as well. Black = 12 Volt Power Red = Stop Light Switch White = Ground Blue = Brake Output If you want to avoid having to do any splicing we do have plug-n-play options available which will be dependent on which brake controller you are using.

  • Installing Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller On a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LD
  • The Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter # 3016 is the correct adapter to connect to the factory brake controller on your 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LD. This connector only has 4 pins versus the 14 pin harness # 3064-P that fits the redesigned 2019 Silverado 1500. I have linked an installation video below that will show the installation of the Prodigy P3 # 90195 with the correct pigtail # 3016 on your Silverado. The factory connection is located behind the cover on firewall on your Silverado.

  • Trailer Brake Controller For a 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 With Trailering Package
  • For your 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 we list it as a towing package while Chevrolet lists it as a trailering package. Since different manufacturers use different terms we selected to term towing package for all of our different vehicles. I recommend using the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller # 90195 if you are looking for an easy to use controller with clear easy to read screen. If you prefer a less obtrusive controller the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite # RED63RR only mounts a

  • Troubleshooting Tekonsha Primus IQ Having PL Code When Installed On 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • Based on the issue you are describing with your Tekonsha Primus IQ # TK90160 getting the PL code and your testing it does indeed sound like the stop light switch on your 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is bad. You should not have any power on the red wire when the brake pedal is NOT pressed, and based on what you described it sounds like you do have some power. I would take your truck to your local Chevy dealer and have them check out the stop light switch, as it is likely still covered

  • Check Engine Light Comes On When Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller is Plugged In But Goes Away When Not
  • This is extremely odd and while you're not the first person I've seen with this issue, your Tekonsha P3 # 90195 won't connect to anything that will cause the check engine light on your 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 to turn on since it should only be connected to a 12v power supply and the stop light switch. Since this goes away when you unplug it, I would check to make sure that you've got it plugged into the correct spot. There is a dummy plug that is connected where you want to plug into

  • Adding An Aftermarket Brake Controller To Replace The Factory Controller On A 2020 GMC 3500
  • When you add an aftermarket brake controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195 to your 2020 GMC Sierra 3500, you will need to have the computer flashed by a GMC dealer to disable the factory brake controller. If you do not do this the computer will throw a trouble code and likely neither controller will work properly. A Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter # 3064-P will allow you to plug directly into the connection on your Sierra.

  • Where is the Brake Controller Plug on my 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LD
  • The factory brake controller port on your 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 LD is in your vehicle's junction box underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column. The Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers part # 3064-P is actually not the part you need for your Silverado 1500 LD. That adapter is for the new body style Silverado. The adapter you need is part # 3016 which is for the older body style including the LD version of your 2019 Silverado. I attached a video

  • Does 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500 w/ Factory Brake Controller Need Computer Flashed to Add Prodigy P3
  • That is a good question but you will still need to take your 2020 Chevy Silverado 3500 to the dealer to have the computer flashed in order to add the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller # 90195. The correct plug in adapter that will work for your Chevy is the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers # 3064-P. I can absolutely understand not wanting to do this, but by adding the P3 # 90195 to your '20 Silverado you'll be able to utilize your Brakerite

  • Which Brake Controller Install Harness for Tekonsha Primus IQ for 2021 Chevy Tahoe
  • The brake controller install wiring harness part # 3064-P is correct for your 2021 Chevy Tahoe and your Tekonsha Primus IQ # TK90160. I'd be willing to bet if you traced the blunt cut wires you found up further you'll find the correct connector that matches the # 3064-P as it sounds like someone plugged in your brake controller pigtail that the truck came with.

  • Installing Trailer Brake Controller on 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • The Plug-In Wiring Harness # 3064-P that you referenced is the correct brake controller harness for your 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 and it is actually a brand new product for this generation of GM trucks (it currently only fits the 2019 model Silverado and Sierra 1500s). Based on the picture you attached it looks like you have found the correct port but the cap just hasn't been disconnected from it. This dummy plug can be easily removed by pushing on the release tabs and pulling it off.
