Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

This adapter plugs into the 4-pin connector in your vehicle's junction box. The box is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, just above the carpeting.


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.

etrailer makes the purchase easy. I have always used Tekonsha Voyagers, and on my new truck (2015 Silverado) I also wanted the convenience of having the plug and play wiring harness. etrailer had exactly what I needed and was very easy to find on the website. Installation was flawless and clean thanks to the good hardware supplied. Very excited to put some trailers behind the truck with the stopping power confidence that comes with the Voyager.

The wiring adapter I ordered was easy to install by following the included instructions! It is vehicle specific ,so I ordered one that fits my 2019 silverado 1500.It plugged into the 4 prong receptacle inside the block box under the dash to the left of the brake pedal against the fire wall.The other end plugged into the brake controller that I ordered(the wire adapter fits several different brands) I installed the Kenosha Primus IQ. Both items had concise, clear instructions with them.After finishing the install I plugged in the travel trailer and set the the brake controller by the instructions and it is working great!The install took me about 20 minutes.

2000 Chevrolet Silverado

I had purchased and used the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller on my 2000 Silverado with good results. When I got a new-to-me 2104 Silverado, I thought I could just buy a new cable and I was correct. It was delivered quickly and plugged in with no issues. The new truck's lower dash panel is more vertical than the older truck and I didn't want to drill holes in it for the mount, so I purchased heavy duty Velcro tape and cut it to fit. It has worked without issues.


Comments
No issues. Thanks.

It worked ok to start with but the connection to the controller was loose and the controller would lose power causing the trailer brakes to fail. I replaced it with the harness that came with the controller and the end that came w the truck. Connection has been perfect since. I wouldn’t waste the couple bucks on this harness. Just splice your own.

FAST SHIPPING!! Great products!!!, I highly recommend purchasing from etrailer!! Easy to put together and install only takes minutes!! I'm using these products to pull a 30ft travel trailer and it does a GREAT job! Hooking up the distribution bars is so fast and easy they just slide in and your done, and the brake controller automatically sees your trailer and saves your settings, so you don't have anything else to do!!

Clip is designed too loose and trailer brake controller loses connection if plug is wiggled, have to use a zip tie to hold it tight to get a proper connection. Other than that it’s the proper length to keep it from dangling by your feet and has worked ever since adding a zip tie

This cable made it very simple to connect to my Tahoe. I appreciate that they knew which cable I needed so I didn't have to wire it in myself. I wish all web sites made it this simple. The instructions with the pictures made it very easy to follow and it worked first time. GREAT JOB!!!

Received the wiring harness and bracket for the brake controller quicker than thought. Though there was a lack of instructions enclosed I found explanations on line on Etrailer site that detailed installation. The only thing missing was though the wiring harness fit, it did not snap into place. Not sure if that is correct or not. Products performed without any complications though. I would recommend these pieces to others.

The Tekonsha P3 is an outstanding controller. Highly recommended for anyone wanting a good for a user friendly controller with nice options. It looks great in my 2014 Silverado. Buying from etrailer was awesome. I suggest getting the wiring harness made specifically for your truck as well. Thanks etrailer.

Too short to mount your brake controller where you want it? The parts you needed to make it longer were right in front of you. I bought this adapter harness along with the Prodigy P3, which also came with it's own harness and attached pigtails. Cut off controller connection on the 3016, and wired up the supplied pigtail harness that came in the P3 box. Took 10 minutes and I had myself plenty of extra length. Have not installed it yet but it looks simple enough with the video tutorial that eTrailer has available.

Very easy to order from website, efficient order processing and delivery sooner than expected from experience with other web merchants. The wiring harness for the electronic trailer brake unit was a perfect fit for our recently purchased Tahoe allowing me to switch the unit from my old GMC Acadia. Installation could not have been easier.

  • Which Tekonsha Primus Brake Controller will Work with 2016 Ram 1500
    The Primus IQ part # TK90160 is the updated version of the Primus 90155 that you have. Your version of the Primus will not work with your 2016 Ram 1500 because the new Rams use a multiplex style of brake light wiring that your controller won't understand. It will think that the brakes are on all the time or won't work at all. So the # 3016 will technically plug in to your controller but it won't work with your truck. You'd need to upgrade to the new version of the Primus with part # TK90160.
