Parts Needed to Install a Brake Controller in a 2006 BMW X5


I have a 2006 BMW X5 4.4i E53 that I want to use for towing a car trailer. I purchased a Tekonsha P3 from you last year and would like to incorporate this. Does a Tekonsha replacement wiring kit come with the PWM module? Could you please suggest a list of what I need? Thanks

Since you do not have a factory trailer wiring you will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 119190KIT. This wiring kit has been confirmed to fit your 2006 BMW X5 and work with it's taillight circuit design. Install video attached.

From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the P3 brake controller # 90195. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached installation instructions and an install video for this product as well.

If you need a replacement wiring kit for the P3 you would want part # 7894.
