Tekonsha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller - 1 to 3 Axles - Proportional
part number: TK90160

Proportional brake controller automatically levels when mounted within a 90-degree vertical range. Includes digital display, 3 boost levels, battery protection and continuous diagnostics. Easily transfer between different automobiles.

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
  • Automatic-leveling ability - internal sensor detects deceleration even if controller is not mounted flat
    • Position anywhere from 0 degrees (level) to 90 degrees in the vertical plane
  • 3 Boost levels let you adjust initial braking power and aggressiveness
  • Continuous diagnostic check alerts you to any potential problems
  • Integrated safeguards protect your vehicle and trailer
    • Minimizes drain on car battery when not in use
    • Prevents trailer brakes from overheating by reducing power output to them during prolonged stops
  • Easy-to-read LED display
  • Built-in, slide-bar manual override
  • Quick-disconnect feature lets you easily remove and store the control when not in use
    • Replacement wiring harness (sold separately) and replacement bracket (6927 - sold separately) required to move the controller from one vehicle to another
  • Plug-in, vehicle-specific brake-control adapter (sold separately) can be used for certain applications to reduce installation time


Specs:

  • Application: trailers with up to 3 axles (6 brake assemblies)
    • Designed for use with electric brakes only
  • Dimensions: 4-3/8" wide x 5" long x 2-1/2" tall
  • Mounting: between 0 degrees (level) and 90 degrees in the vertical plane
  • Limited lifetime 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. Just set the initial power level, select a boost setting, and you're good to go.


As long as the Primus IQ controller is properly mounted 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 Boost for Heavy-Duty Towing

Aside from smoother, more efficient braking, Tekonsha's Primus IQ brake controller also offers a boost feature that gives you more initial braking power for those 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 13 percent or 25 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 GVWB113%
Equal to tow vehicle GVWB1 or B213% or 25%
Up to 25% more than tow vehicle GVWB2 or B3*25%
Up to 40% more than tow vehicle GVWB3*25%

*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 Primus IQ offers advanced safety features to prevent damage to various components of your towing setup. For example, when it is not in use, this brake controller will be in power-saving mode. In this setting, the power draw falls to minimize drain on your vehicle's battery.


When you stop at red lights, or any time that your truck and trailer are at a standstill with the brakes applied for more than 5 seconds, the Primus IQ's "hold" feature will activate. When this happens, the power output to your trailer's brakes will be reduced to just 25 percent of the preset power setting so that the brakes will not overheat.


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 is easily accessible. Pushing this slide bar engages the brakes on your trailer with full power. In addition, when you activate this override, the brake lights on your trailer will illuminate, properly warning those behind you of the braking action of your rig.


In addition to all of those safety features listed above, the Primus IQ offers diagnostics such as:

  • Open ground
  • Overload
  • Output short
  • Faulty mounting
  • Power loss
  • No trailer connection

Automatic Leveling and Simple Installation

The self-leveling feature of the Primus IQ ensures that the brake controller continues to function even as you drive up steep hills or through the mountains. Simply mount it in your cab at a vertical angle that is between 0 degrees (level) and 90 degrees, and the controller will level itself automatically.


Correct Primus mounting90-Degree Primus mounting

Note: The Primus IQ 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.


Installation is a snap. After mounting the Primus IQ unit in your cab using the included bracket, hardwire one end of the included pigtail harness directly into your vehicle. The other end plugs into the brake controller. To transfer the Primus IQ to another vehicle or to remove it for storage, just unplug the unit and snap it out of the bracket.


Installation Accessories

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.

I installed TK90160 on my 2007 Sierra 2500 Diesel because I got tired of paying GM to repair the factory brake controller. It works great. Easy to read and simple to install. I used the installation diagram supplied by etrailer to complete the job. I tow a fifth wheel RV. 573301

Comments

Can you tell us exactly what the issue was? According to the Tech Services folks at Tekonsha, theres nothing unique to your model year Escape that would prevent the successful installation of this brake controller.

George to be honest I have only been able to use the controller a couple of times. We moved 3 hours north of Houston and had to leave the trailer in storage in Houston while I wait for a workshop storage unit to be built on site on our new property. The few times I have used it I was impressed. Couldnt even tell I was towing the trailercamper.

The brake controller that I received worked very well. The plug and play brake controller adapter (3016) - not so well. After looking at all the reviews I decided to order the Primis IQ brake controller along with the wiring adapter (3016). I talked to Susan (customer service) and asked how long the wiring adapter was. I wanted to make sure I had enough wire to go from my fuse box to the controller. She told me the length was 35 inches. This was enough for me so I ordered it. Everything came to me in just a few days. Unfortunately I didn't measure the adapter wiring prior to installing the brake controller. When I started to wire the adapter to the controller I found out that the wire is only 27-28 inches long including the plugs. With a lot of stretching I was able to just get the adapter connected to my fuse box and my controller. If you purchase the adapter (3016) make sure you measure the distance from your fuse box to your controller prior to drilling holes in your dashboard or you may have to relocate your controller. I am pleased with instructions that are sent with the product. They are very well done and easy to understand. 568074

Replaced an older brake controller with the TK90160. Installation was very straight forward and took less than a half hour. Hooked up the trailer, went to an empty parking lot, tested everything and adjusted the Boost feature. This unit is a superior brake controller. I do a lot of freeway driving as well as mountain roads (ie steep stuff) and I love the feeling of the trailer and the truck’s brakes working together. 563689

I have not hauled with this brake controller yet, but given the ease of installation and simplicity of controls i'm not sure how i could be disappointed. For my hauling needs (Only a 6k gvwr 2 axle trailer) this is perfect and a reasonable price for a proportional controller. Better yet was etrailer.com not setting false expectations on arrival. There are "two-day guaranteed" shippers that often fail to meet, while etrailer estimated a realistic travel time and actually beat it by a lot! 554652

Order was received quickly and installation was easy. Silverado has a tow package, but was in need of a brake controller. The Primus IQ should work fine for my needs. The pin in the RV plug for the electric brake connection does not have power to it on my truck. Once I get it figured out, it should work great. Thanks again for the quick response in receiving it. 554897

I have not connected the device as of yet. However delivery and price were on point. I have a 2005 Toyota Tundra that does not have a factory tow package and I need to know exactly were to connect into the brake switch. The truck does have the 4 prong connection so I can use the ETBC7 kit that will definately save several wire connections. The kit came with a great diagram. It is just the exact location to connect the one wire on my specific vehicle. 424889

This will be more of an overall etrailer review as opposed to a specific product review as I've yet to actually test the product. So, you might ask, how can I feel confident enough to review a company whose product I have not tested. The answer is simple and solid...I, in all actuality, tested the very fabric of etrailer itself; their employees (specifically Bill and Kristin, my many kudos to you both). I tested their patience. I tested their gumption. I tested their resilience. I even tested the very foundation of their courtesy. With my innocently incessant questions, concerns and over-dramatizations, I pulled, tugged and prodded at the very essence of, what I can only assume is, their corporate ethic. I begged, probed and, most likely to some extent, annoyed their customer service with email after email for days; although, I'm sure to them it must have seemed like an eternity of overtime. Not once, was a single one of my inquiries met with even the slightest hint of aggravation or delay. If you think that I'm just touting because I love talking, you're sadly mistaken. Never in my long years have I ever "reviewed" anyone or anything online. I don't Facebook. I don't Twitter. I don't even go to the customer service desk at the grocery store. It's not my style and it probably never will be. But, I would feel remiss if I let this one go. There is a reason why their site comes up so frequently when searching for answers to new questions and available products...their company is clearly founded on successful ideals and, every effort of their service department proves it beyond a doubt. In the end, this old man was wrong. And, I suffered them through an unnecessary ordeal. But, I've come to find, that, in life, we get tested, often when we least expect and even more frequently, without knowing why. I can not say that there is a better reason for the tribulation they so positively endured other than to give me the confidence to proceed. But, then again, as customer's, is that not but what we seek. I sought affirmation and reassurance that I wasn't just shoving my money into a machine but, instead, shaking hands with an old friend. I was not disappointed. And, I doubt that you would be either. In fact, in my humble opinion, I believe that you'd have to be downright incorrigible to meet any dissatisfaction with their service. In an online generation where almost every site has almost every thing, and all at pretty much the same price, I can see no excusable reason to overlook the absolute value of total confidence in your purchase. The fact is, that at some point, I will need to order something for or have a question about my RV again, and every time my browser search shows results from etrailer.com, I will go their first because I have the experience to know that they know that the way they treat me will bring me back. 474860

I ordered and received my Tekonsha Primus IQ brake controller with wiring harness for my 2012 Ford Expedition. To keep from drilling mounting holes for the contoller, I double backed taped it to the top of the center console. In order to hide the wires, I had to strip some of the braided wire loom protective cover away so to be able to push the wires through the gap between the dash and console. The installation came out very clean and access to the controller couldnt be better. Hooked up the trailer and took it for a drive. Within a few "stops" I had the brake system dialed in.Working perfectly. PICTURES ATTACHED. 493750

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

Cheapest Tekonsha progressive controller (progressive is quite important with heavy loads, transient road conditions, short tow vehicle wheelbase, etc). Bought it with the OEM integration harness (thanks etrailer, this made things SUPER easy) mounted the "clip" bracket at the bottom of my console below the 4WD selectors with double side tape and the screws provided for good measure. Haven't tested yet but went through all the diagnostics and worked great! 548728

I have installed the Tekonsha Primus IQ Brake Controller with the ETBC7 Brake Controller wiring kit on my 1990 Chevy Blazer Scottsdale. Everything that I needed was included and the installation instructions were simple. We will be trying it out for the first time in early November when we are going to rent a small travel trailer. If we like the experience we may buy a travel trailer to go with our brake controller! Before and after pictures attached. Thanks for the quick service and support. 228964

Brakes work perfectly. Our rental trailer worked out great for an 800 mile round trip and 4 nights at a Florida State Park. We bought a used 20 travel trailer in February and have taken it on two short trips and a month long vacation. We have had no problems at all and now have almost 3000 miles of towing behind us. One emergency stop was exciting, but the rig stayed perfectly straight and probably stopped shorter than the Blazer would have done without the 4 extra brakes behind it. Thanks for all of your help and support.

Great product. I followed the online video from ETRAILER.com for a 2017 Chevy Colorado with excellent results. My truck is a 2018 Colorado which has the same wiring (no plug n play like the Silverado). Made sure the color coding of the 4 wires were connected properly as described in the video. All you have to do is pay attention to his instructions. Now I can safely pull my 16 foot trailer loaded with tractor. Thanks, Hugh 554796

Had it for about a year now. Plug and play on my Ram 1500 with the adapter harness sold separately. All wires were long enough and I actually had to tie wrap them up to shorten them. Thats a good problem in my book when it comes to wires on vehicles. Installed it in the length of time it took to screw in 2 screws and plug the harness into the existing plug. I use it mainly to tow a 6000lb dual axle travel trailer. It did take some getting used to the Proportional control as it replaced a cheaper timed one. But once I got used to it I don't even notice its there. Brakes are proportional and stopping distance is about the same as without the trailer and dependent on how hard I hit them. Drove 1800 miles in the Appalachians last month with some incredibly steep inclines. Never failed and performed excellent. It is adjustable and I did have to dial it in, but once done I haven't touched it. Great product, dependable and you get good performance for the price. I'd buy it again. 415554

Primus Iq Brake Controller installed in a Mercedes Benz 2017 Sprinter. The van's electronics interface with the Primus, and it can detect when the trailer brakes lock-up, which lights an dashboard indicator lamp. I used the Mercedes-specific plugs under the driver's seat and ran the cables through the battery box to the dashboard. 489003
