So what you are saying is that the plug physically will not insert into the connector, is that right?

I spoke with my contact at Tekonsha, who tells me that you might be looking at the wrong connector under the dash. He said that the connector you are looking for is actually pretty difficult to find. It is located above the emergency brake pedal, and is easier to see and access if the emergency brake is engaged.

The wiring harness should have a tag taped to it that says Electric Brake Connector, as shown in the photo I have provided. The harness is actually taped in place, if you carefully cut the tape that secures it to the other harness, you can pull the connector down a bit so that it is easier to access.

There is another possibility. Nissan has done some strange stuff over the years with the wiring systems of their vehicles. On some XE models, a different brake controller harness is used and you'd need to cut the plug off and hardwire it to the brake controller pigtail, as shown in the video I've linked for you.
