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 I-Command is properly mounted according to the included instructions, the controller will automatically level, sense the tow vehicle's deceleration, and adjust the trailer's braking accordingly. The result is uniform braking across your towing setup. No push-pull action - just smooth, proportional braking every time.


Power Boost for Heavy-Duty Towing

The I-Command offers a boost feature that gives you more initial braking power for times when you're towing heavy loads. You can switch boost levels so that the power output to your trailer brakes automatically starts out at either 14 percent or 28 percent of the predetermined power setting.


So, if you boost the initial power so that your trailer brakes activate with 25 percent of the overall intensity at the start, the brakes will reach maximum braking faster. This is particularly beneficial if you are towing a heavy load because the intensity required to stop that load may be far greater than that needed to halt your vehicle. Therefore, sending out more initial power to the trailer brakes - and causing them to reach maximum braking faster - allows you to better control the trailer so that it doesn't push your tow vehicle before coming to a complete stop.


If your trailer weighs less than your tow vehicle, no boost is needed. But if you wish to set the boost so that your trailer leads the braking of your towing setup, you can select level B1. The following table gives an indication of when you might use the different boost levels and the power increases that they offer.


Approximate Gross Trailer WeightBoost LevelIncrease in Initial Power Output
Less than tow vehicle GVWB114%
Equal to tow vehicle GVWB1 or B214% or 28%
Up to 25% more than tow vehicle GVWB1, B2, or B3* 28%
Up to 40% more than tow vehicle GVWB2 or B3* 28%


* Both B2 and B3 offer a 25-percent boost in initial power. But the braking curve for B3 is more aggressive than that of B2. This means that, even though you will start out with the same intensity when using these boost levels, you will get an overall more aggressive braking experience with the higher level. So if you use B3, you will reach maximum braking sooner than if you use B2.


Safety Features

The I-Command offers advanced safety features to prevent damage to various components of your towing setup. Integrated reverse battery protection shields the brake controller and your trailer's breakaway system from shorts.


If ever there is a time that you need to brake your trailer separately from your tow vehicle - when traveling down a steep incline, for example - the manual override lever is easily accessible. Pushing this lever engages the brakes on your trailer with full power.


LED Display

The I-Command has a digital LED display to keep you informed of your trailer's braking. The display shows the gain setting when the control is activated. It can also be used to check for connectivity with your trailer, to determine your boost setting, and to troubleshoot.


Automatic Leveling and Simple Installation

Because this controller operates with an internal inertia sensor, it must be mounted between -20 degrees and 70 degrees in the vertical plane. The I-Command 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.


The automatic leveling feature of the I-Command ensures that the brake controller continues to function even as you drive up steep hills or through the mountains. Mount the controller at a vertical angle that is between 0 degrees (level) and 70 degrees, and the controller with level itself automatically.


Installation of the I-Command requires that you either purchase a custom wiring adapter designed to plug into the controller or that you hardwire the controller directly into your vehicle. To hardwire the controller, 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.


For even 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 Draw-Tite Brake Controller 5535 Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Draw-Tite I-Command Proportional Trailer Brake Controller. This controller is going to activate the trailer brakes in proportion to your vehicle's braking action, it's going to automatically adjust the trailer's braking based on deceleration of the towed vehicle, and it activates immediately, so there's no pausing like when using time-delayed brake controllers. This unit's also going to automatically level. The brake control will automatically acquire the proper level setting, it's also going to automatically adjust as you travel up or down hills. A few unique features about this system. As you can see here, we have the easy to access buttons, we're going to have the boost setting right here on top and it says 'Boost' right here on the disc plate, so that way we know these button go with that setting. On this side we're going to have the gain control, and it says 'Gain' right there so we know that these buttons are associated with that control.

The boost setting is going to let you adjust the aggressiveness with which the brakes are activated, so this is setting is great in situations where you're hauling heavier loads or your trailer weight is significantly more than your vehicle weight. It's going to be available in three settings, you're going to have Boost 1, Boost 2, and Boost 3. It's going to allow you to get full power output faster by pressing the plus buttons right here, or the minus buttons to achieve maybe a smoother braking action. You can get full output power faster by pressing the plus button to increase the activation speed, and then you can achieve smoother braking by pressing the minus button to supply power gradually. Located right here at the front is going to be the easy to read digital display. This is going to be an LED display, it's going to show the controller activity.

The unit is short-circuit protected. On this side you're going to have the gain setting, this is going to establish the maximum amount of power available to the trailer brakes. As the gain increases, and you just the plus or minus buttons to do that, so it's very easy to adjust, but as that increases what that means is more power is going to be available to the brakes when the brake peddle in the vehicle is pressed or when the manual control is used. We do have the built in slide bar manual override right here at the front, very easily accessible. Gain is going to be shown from zero to ten, with zero being the minimum and ten being the maximum. That simply represents a percentage of the full power.

It's a quick and easy installation, your mounting bracket and hardware are included, and then it's going to be able to plug into a vehicle specific brake control adapter. Those are sold separately and can be used for certain applications to help reduce installation time. Again, this is designed for trailers with up to four axles or A-brake assemblies. It's designed for use with electric brakes only. When mounting this, you can mount this anywhere from -20 degrees nose down, anywhere to 70 degrees nose up in the vertical plane.

You want to make sure this is parallel with the direction of travel, but anywhere in between those indicators that I gave you, -20 degrees nose down or 70 degrees nose up, this is still going to be fully functional. All the leveling, the sensor inside, that's going to be functional as long as you stay within those increments, or those measurements of negative 20, 70 degrees nose up. Really nice design, it's a nice small compact unit as well. Here at the widest part it's only going to measure about 2-3/4" wide, and then the overall length is going to be about 4-1/4", and then the depth or the thickness is only 1-1/8". It's going to be covered with a unlimited lifetime warranty. Now what I want to do is I just want to show you how easily that display can be read. I'm just going to hook up a couple of wires here today just to send some power to it, I'm going to hook up a ground power then the power wire, and then we thumb through some of the settings and you can get an idea for how easy it is to read and how easy it is to see that display. NC is going to stand for Not Connected, but it's still going to allow us to kind of go through. We have our gain setting, you can see how that easily adjusts with a simple press of the button, and again you can go all the way up to ten, you can hold it down, which is going to allow you to adjust quicker, all the way up to ten. Then you can press individual to make finer adjustments, or you can hold it down and it's going to go all the way down to zero. You can adjust to anywhere in between that setting, really nice design. You're also going to have the manual override right here, which for me it's just saying I'm not connected, which is correct since I'm just feeding off a power box. Then you're going to have your boost setting. You're going to have Boost 1, Boost 2, Boost 3, then just the B shows you that you're in the boost settings, then you have 1, 2 and 3 to choose from. That's going to do it for today's look at the Draw Tite I-Command Proportional Trailer Brake Controller.

2010 Ford F-150


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

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

This has been the best and easiest purchase during my short journey of outfitting my 2008 Nissan Titan SE to haul a 27 ft camper. This has been the easiest install. If you're not mechanically inclined like myself no worries at all. It takes literally 5-10 mins to locate your quick connects and attach it to the dash. Once connected it automatically does everything else for you. You receive a set of directions just make sure you read them first and save yourself some money and do the install yourself. Once the camper was connected to the truck it was automatically detected. Can't get any easier than just connect and go. I would recommend strongly on purchasing this trailer brake connector/quick connect along with using this company. The shipping was extremely fast and communication was great prior to its arrival. 344916

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

Ordered this for my 2008 Toyota Tundra to be able to pull a 25 foot travel trailer. This has been the easiest install. It takes literally 5-10 minutes to locate your quick connects and attach it to the dash. I mounted it as close to the middle console to help keep it away from my knee and legs. I used a black magic marker to blend the screws into the black frame. Once connected it automatically does everything else for you. I would recommend strongly on purchasing this trailer brake connector/quick connect along with using this etrailer. The shipping was extremely fast and communication was great prior to its arrival. I watched a YouTube video on my truck to make it even easier to install. 371551

Products were as advertised. Mount the controller, plug the cable into the controller and the truck connector. Set the boost per the documentation - go towing! How easy is that? 120771


Comments

After over a year of using this controller I have nothing but good to say about it. In all weather conditions it allows you to stop your rig under control. This is my third Tekonsha controller so that is the best recommendation I can give. Other two went with the vehicle when sold as the buyers wanted the controller.

Comments: A) It was a challenge to find the correct wiring for the red control wire for my 3rd generation Toyota 4Runner (1996). It would sure be nice to have a pigtail adapter that worked with that model, but I understand there would be a million different types of pigtails. I have suggestions for anyone else in this predicament with a 4Runner. B) The wiring diagram for the Draw-tite I-command Brake Control suggests this is always active -- directly wired to battery. Instead of plugging unplugging the pigtail, a rocker switch would be good. What is the idle current (amperage) draw (drain on battery)? How about current draw while actively braking? This would specify the type of rocker C) There is little description of the "gain" setting (vs the "boost"). How is this value dialed in for a particular load and boost setting? switch. 391425


Comments

So far very well. The boost needs to be changed for highway vs city driving B1 vs B. Perhaps this is a function of the Casita brakes, but brakes grab & lock up if I dont reduce the boost in city driving.

The items I ordered were delivered promptly and were exactly as ordered. In addition, installation instructions were included and the instructions were more detailed than I was able to find from any other source. I purchased a new pickup truck that came equipped with a tow package. I tow a two horse trailer with electric brakes. Since the truck manufacturer doesn't know what kind of trailer you have, the vehicle wasn't equipped with an inertia brake controller. It does have the input plug, however. So I had to get a mounting bracket and attachment cable so I could move my controller from my old vehicle to my new one. I simply ordered a mounting bracket and cable and these items arrived a few days ago. I will be installing them soon. So, I'm satisfied with the service from etrailer. 331217

Thank you for your good service and kind customer rep. Hard to find good experiences like this nowadays. I've included a picture of a Tekonsha Voyager that I installed in the area the OEM TBC would be. Its sturdy. It works. Too easy. 210565

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

THE CONTROLLER MOUNTED EASILY AND PERFORMED AS STATED. I'VE BEEN CONTENT WITH THE DRAW-TITE DELAY STYLE CONTROLLER I USED FOR 30 YEARS BUT THE PROPORTIONAL STYLE 5535 IS A MUCH BETTER CONCEPT. IT ACTS LIKE THE TOW VEHICLES BRAKES BY APPLYING MORE BRAKE THE HARDER THE BRAKES ARE APPLIED. I'VE ONLY USED IT ON ONE TRIP ON DRY ROADS WITH NO HARD STOPS SO IT MAY REQUIRE SOME TWEAKING THE MORE I USE IT. I TOW AN ENCLOSED 24 FOOT CAR TRAILER AND SET THE CONTROLLER MID RANGE ON BOTH SETTINGS AS MY STARTING POINT. 293519

Thanks for a great brake controller. Have not yet bought the trailer. Need the controller before I can buy. But everything seems good. The wiring adapter is great -- well worth the money. I think it was your F150 2009 video I found most useful, though mine is a 2011 model. I think you should have suggested the possibility of mounting the controller in the little storage space that your 2009 video shows the cable attached to. The controller fits very nicely. But it requires sawing the back off the storage compartment and a bit of dremmel work (1/32 inch???). I would not have been happy with my controller mounted way down low as your video shows it. Not at all happy. 134614

This brake was very easy to install once I figured out where to mount it. A previous video I watched showed it mounted in a location that was too low (on the bottom of the panel) and hard to reach if needing to adjust while driving. I chose a location farther up but wasn't sure what was hiding behind the plastic so I chose to use the 3m Dual Lock fastener. This holds more securely than Velcro but it is still removable. I wasn't thrilled about having holes in my panel if I didn't like the location and wanted to move it so this was a great alternative. The brake seems to work well and is easy to adjust. The price from etrailer.com was great and it shipped quickly. 348822

So far it’s been great. I’ve only used it a few times but it is everything I wanted and needed. I recommend this product and your company to everyone I know that is looking for a trailer brake.

I have recently purchased a camper and need to add a brake controller to my existing 2012 F150. I purchased the Tekonsha brake controller and the Tekonsha 3036-P adapter harness because all the reviews were very good. I also liked the versatility of being able to set up 5 different trailer programs and selecting them when needed. The installation could not have been any easier. I looked at my go-to online store for the same equipment and erailer was cheaper than they were. The personnel that I dealt with at etrailer were very knowledgeable about their products and also very courteous. I will defiantly use them again for my trailering or camper needs. 406969

The whole process of adding a tow package to my vehicle seemed daunting but after watching the videos carefully and following all instructions, I was able to install the tow hitch, 7 pin, and this brake controller in only a few hours. I didn't have an existing tow package so it meant running new wires through the firewall, to the battery, and mounting the fuses. A little more than I thought I was getting into but like I said it was very easy to follow the instructions. I have used the controller to great success on our travel trailer. It gives me the control and confidence I need when hauling, especially when my family is with. 512332

I tried finding the controller I wanted locally which ended up costing more time and money Then it should have. One of the places I stopped at was getting info from etrailer web page then adding his ridiculous mark up. When I got back to my office I ordered it from etrailer myself and bought exactly what I was trying to find locally but for much less money even with two day shipping. Beyond all that etrailer is the easiest place to shop and their tracking of my shipment couldn't have been any easier. From here on out if etrailer has what I'm looking for life will be just that much better. Thanks etrailer. 388783

Got some straps to secure our quad to trailer and a brake controller. All products came on time and worked perfectly. At first I thought the 4 Bulldog straps were way to beefy and overkill, but having used them this past weekend I have changed my mind....I felt very confident driving knowing there was no way our toy was going to come loose! And the absolute best feature is the little safety latch that prevents hook from possibly falling off trailer hook if strap were to come loose. Folks I talked to were very knowledgeable and helpful. I will definitely visit the etrailer site next time I need something. 565493

2012 Ford F-150


Very easy to install with adapter cable for correct model. Looked at video first before installing but the video wasn't correct for the 2012 F-150. The is a difference in the 2012. The actual factory harness was located under the dash instead of behind panel as video shows, not a problem as far as installation goes because it still hooks up the same way, just the factory cable on my 2012 was located under dash. After finding the cable, the install was breeze. Called tech support when I couldn't at first find the cable, they were very helpful and excited to help...very good work!! 65480

The product description and installation instructions were unparalleled in my experience. Installing the Prodigy P2 was particularly easy with the plug in harness that I purchased with the controller. The videos available for so many different installations are a great help for anyone who is installing one of these for the first time. The brake controller has worked perfectly and has very clear instructions for doing adjustments. The best part of buying from etrailer is the on-line support, which I think is head and shoulders above any web site I have used for any product. 111997

2013 Ford Flex


I installed the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 brake controller in a 2013 Ford Flex using the supplied wiring harness. The harness plugged into a connector in the factory wiring under the steering column. All other wiring to the 7 pin connector was included in the tow package purchased with this vehicle. The controller was mounted on the dash to the left of the steering column using supplied brackets; this required drilling and installing 2 machine screws thru the removable dash panel. The instructions were very well written and all parts supplied fit perfectly. 153563

I purchased the adapter cable along with the Prodigy 3 brake controller for my Ford F150. I had only 3 days to receive the product and complete the installation. etrailer expedited my shipment at reasonable cost. It was to arrive no later than Wednesday, but was at my door early AM on Tuesday. The product quality was top drawer and installation was quite easy. I really like the features of this proportional trailer brake controller, and would recommend these products to anyone interested in top quality products. Service from etrailer was exemplary. 445778

Typical internet sales...not sure why Im surprised...they charge you an arm and a leg for 3 day delivery...then send the wrong freekin part...I will make sure EVERYONE I know stays away from etraiiler.com...nothing but a ripoff company... 402807

this really is the BEST trailer brake controller we have used. It is easy to tune and regulates the heavy horse trailer so smoothly that you do not feel it. However, do yourself AND the manufacturer a favor; If you have a High Performance ignition system such as CDI or have performance spark plug wires on your hot rod truck; put a 1000 uF or more 25 volt Filter Capacitor on the incoming 12 volts. If you do not, electronic interference will "scramble the microprocessor brain" in the unit. With the filter, no problem and the unit is wonderful. 450934

I installed this in my Jeep Grand Cherokee for pulling a travel trailer. We pulled the trailer from the Denver area all the way to the California coast. For anyone who has driven across 80, you know what challenges face a camper making that journey. No wonder pioneers left family heirlooms along the trail in the old days! This break controller made the trip possible for me. It worked well, and the trailer never ran the Jeep over. I remember engaging the trailer breaks quite a bit on the hill going into Salt Lake City. Worked like a charm! 454219

Highly recommended. 441831

I wish I would have bought this controller last year when I bought my first camper. We upgraded to a new truck and the old controller wouldn't work so the GREAT team and ETRAILER told me this was the controller to get. Man were they RIGHT. I love that as soon as I hook up my trailer it tells me right on the controller that it is connected and when I unhook or don't have the plug seated fully it will tell me N.C(not connected). Hands down the best controller I have ever used and at a great price. 284541

2016 Ford F-150


This was an exact fit for my 2016 F 150. Only down side is Ford hides the plus inside the dash instead of easily accessible under dash like the past. It was very easy to install. Instead of pulling apart the dash lie in the install video, I was able to remove dash under steering column as it is hinged and folds down. I then loosened the two top bolts on the metal plate. I was then able to reach in and unplug the harness from where it was located. Took less than 30 minutes to install. 296705

I received my controller in just a couple of days. I watched the video that was for my model and year truck. I easily found the connector under the dash, connected the cable shipped with the controller, installed the bracket and controller in about 15 minutes. I then connected the trailer, familiarized myself with the controls and then went for a test drive. I am well pleased with the controller's performance. All in all, it was a good experience. 143915

The Drawtite brake controller and cable for my 2007 Silverado went together like a dream. I tested it on a dual axle 22ft beavertail equipment trailer and it adjusted perfectly and definitely allows the vehicle and trailer to stop in a much shorter distance and more controlled way. I'd highly recommend this product because it works well as advertised and cost about half of what other units out there. 270249

  • Recommended Brake Controller And Wiring For 2005 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • The Draw-Tite I-Command Trailer Brake Controller, part # 5535 is designed for electric only brakes. It will not work with electric over hydraulic brakes. We do offer brake controllers like part # 90885 that can be used with both brake systems. When wiring the brake controller, the red wire needs to be attached to a wire that only has power when the brake pedal is pressed. Typically this is the cold side of the brake light switch, found under the dash at the top of the brake pedal.

  • Drawtite I-Command Brake Controller Error Code
  • On the Draw-Tite I-command Brake Controller # 5535, the manual says the error is the brake controller is "seeing" an overload condition during operation. If it is reading overload without the trailer connected then that means there is a short in the blue trailer feed wire on the vehicle. You will need to check this wire for a short using a circuit tester like # PTW2993, and replace the wire where any issue is found. If you can't find the point along the wire, I recommend cutting the

  • Wire Gauge and Circuit Breaker Required for Brake Controller Isntallation

  • Troubleshooting S.H. and P.L. Codes on Draw-Tite I-Command Brake Controller
  • I took a look at the instructions manual for your Draw-Tite I-Command Trailer Brake Controller # 5535. It looks like the "P.L." error code you are seeing indicates a power interruption while the brake pedal is depressed, and the "S.H." code appears when the brake wire sees a short during idle condition. There seems to be some kind of short or wiring issue with your brake controller. I recommend starting by testing the controller itself to make sure it isn't bad. To do this, you will

First for a brake controller, I recommend the Tekonsha P3 # 90195, because of its easy user interface. The P3 is a proportional brake controller which means it senses how the tow vehicle is slowing or stopping and applies the trailer's brakes with the same intensity. It also has a full display screen instead of codes that need deciphering. The Tekonsha P2 # 90885 is

  • Brake Controller Shows Trailer Connected with No Trailer Connected
  • There is definitely a short somewhere and since you disconnected the 12 volt power wire from the newly installed 7-Way the only items left that could cause this is the brake controller and its wiring. But make double sure that the white ground wire on that adapter is attached to a clean bare metal surface. Not that a short to ground or weak ground would cause this exact issue but better safe than sorry. On the 4- to 7-Way adapter the blue wire is the brake output wire for the trailer

  • Draw-Tite Brake Controller Shows Trailer Connected without a Trailer

You could disconnect the light from the connector and if the controller no longer shows that a trailer is connected that would confirm that the light was tricking the controller. If it still shows that a trailer is connected then there is a short somewhere that is drawing power from the brake controller. Brake controllers send back a little voltage to
