Helpful Expert Reply:

Ill, illumination, that is correct. You will not use that wire to install the Voyager brake controller # 39510 on your 2016 Nissan Pathfinder. You will only need the black, red/green, brown/white, and blue.

On the brake controller the white wire is ground, black is 12 volt power in, blue is output to the trailer brakes, and red is input from the brake switch.

So based on your description of the wires:

Controller white to harness black
Controller red to harness red/green
Controller black to harness red
Controller blue to harness blue
