There should be a factory brake controller plug on your 2015 Ford F-150, whether it came with a 4-Way or 7-Way connector at the back of the truck. The plug will be located beneath the dash inside your cab. You may need to remove some shroud around the steering wheel compartment to access the plug. I have attached an installation video on the 2016 Ford F-150 that you can take a look at. The process should be very similar for your 2015 model.

The correct plug-in adapter for your Ford F-150 is the part # 22292. One end will plug into the brake controller itself and the other end will connect to the built-in port on your truck. For the brake controller itself, I highly recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195. This is an excellent, proportional controller that will activate the brakes on your trailer at the same time and with the same intensity that you apply to them in your truck. It features an easy to read digital display along with continuous diagnostics that will alert you to any potential issues.

I have included the written installation and operating instructions for this controller that you can also check out.

I'm glad you were able to find the factory plug on your Ford F-150!

During and after installation of an aftermarket brake controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195 that I referenced, you will not need to bring your 2016 F-150 to the dealer to have the computer flashed. This is the case with certain model trucks that feature an integrated brake controller, but not for your particular truck. You will just need to use the Plug-In Adapter Harness # 22292 to install the controller and you will be good to go.
