Parts Needed to Install Brake Controller in 2018 Subaru Crosstrek


Is there a plug in adapter for 1018 Subaru premium crosstrek to connect electric break controller #39523 and Subaru factory wire harness in vehicle to make instillation easier

We can help you install a brake controllerin your 2018 Subaru Crosstrek but Subaru did not put an install port for a brake controller in your vehicle so you'd have to hardwire the controller.

You'd need to start with a 4-way if you don't have one already. For that you'd want the part # 118467.

From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. 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.

For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup. The PowerTrac part # 39523 that you mentioned is a great priced controller but it isn't able to apply the exact amount of braking intensity as your vehicle like the P2 does as it has an internal inertia sensor that applies the brakes at the exact intensity needed.
