How to Install a Brake Controller on a 2012 Volkswagen Touareg


2012 VW Touareg DTI Were is the connector under the dash for the brake controller

There isn't a plug in style connector to install a brake controller on a 2012 Volkswagen Touareg. If your Touareg came with a factory 7-Way trailer connector there is a fairly easy way to install a controller. Take a look at the help article I have linked to the right. It explains what you will need to do and the wire functions for installation of a brake controller.

The article also mentions needed a relay for certain brake controllers but that should not be needed for a 2012 model.

For a brake controller I recommend the P2 # 90885 because it is easy to set up and use and it is reliable.

If your Touareg does not have a factory 7-Way then you will need to hardwire in a brake controller. First you would need to install a 4-Way, # 119147KIT, unless there is already one on the vehicle. Then you would need 4 and 7-Way installation kit # ETBC7. I have included some links that will help if you need to do the ETBC7 installation.
