Parts Needed to Install a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500


how to install brake controller to a 2002 chevy 2500

Expert Reply:

Installing a brake controller on your 2002 Chevy Silverado 2500 will be a snap. The 2002 models have a port under the dash that will allow you to just plug in the brake controller wiring harness. For the correct wiring harness, you will need part # HM47795. i have included a link to the installation details for you to view.

The port on the truck is located in an electrical junction box on the lower left side of the truck to the left of the brake pedal. Remove the cover and plug in the brake controller wiring harness into the empty spot on the top row, second from the left.

If your truck has a factory installed 7-Way wiring harness, you will not need any additional parts. If it did not come with a trailer connector, you can install one using part # PK11898, which connects to a wire bundle above the spare tire. If there is a plug in this location and not a bundle or wires, use # 30955.

There may be some connections that you will need to make under the hood to complete installation and make everything functional. I have included a link to an FAQ article that will help.
