Trouble Finding the Brake Controller Wiring Port on a 2019 Chevy Blazer

Question:

Cant find the wires to installer electric brake controller. Manual says the body harness, inside the front driver side instrument panel, contains blunt cut wires below the headlamp switch, but they must be very well hidden. Dealer wont even install it, probably because they dont know where to find it either. Also tried taking of the kick panel but didnt see anything obvious there either.

I do have an option for you but we have not yet gotten out hands on a 2019 Chevrolet Blazer therefore, have not had the chance to look for the brake controller wiring port either. I checked with both Tekonsha and Curt and it looks like they have not had the pleasure of doing so either. However, I was able find in the manual where it stated that, "Wiring provisions for an aftermarket electric trailer brake controller are included with the vehicle as part of the trailer wiring package. These wiring provisions for an electric trailer brake controller are included with the vehicle as part of the trailer wiring package. The body harness, inside the front driver side instrument panel, contains blunt cut wires below the headlamp switch for the electric trailer brake controller."

With that being said, in most cases the brake controller port isn't exactly right where they say it will be because its usually tapped to other wires in that general vicinity. Was your Blazer equipped with a factory 7-way? If not then it may not have came with the trailer wiring provisions for an electric trailer brake controller. If this is the case then I recommend you use the Curt Echo Mobile Trailer Brake Controller part # C51180 along with the 7-Way RV Upgrade Kit for Trailer Brake Controller Installation part # ETBC7L. If you do have a 7-way then you can still use the Curt Echo and you still don't need to worry about finding the brake controller port as this brake controller does not require any modifications to the tow vehicle.

The other major reason I like this brake controller is because it uses a device you are already comfortable using (your phone), you do not need to read an entire comprehensive manual and familiarize yourself with the controls and codes to use it. Please note that if your phone loses power the brake controller will still function as normal.
