Review of Tekonsha Accessories and Parts 3036-S

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Tekonsha custom wiring adapter for trailer brake controllers. This product fits certain models and years of the Ford F150, the Ford Flex and the Lincoln MKT. The pigtail wiring adapter's going to ease the installation of your electric trailer brake controller. The wiring is going to measure about 30 inches long. You have the connector end on this side of the wiring. This is going to plug into the built in port beneath the dash of your vehicle.

On the other end, you're going to have your exposed wires. These are going to connect to the wires on your brake controller, with the included butt connectors. This unit's compatible with time delayed and proportional brake controllers from Trailer Mate, Draw-Tite, and Tekonsha. It's got a nice protective mesh covering the wires, so it's going to keep them close together to prevent loose wires from hanging or dangling down by your feet. This adapter's designed to plug into the connector behind the instrument panel in your vehicle's dashboard. It's going to match up perfectly.

It's going to snap together. It's got a nice little locking tab back here, so it's going to provide that nice, tight, secure fit that we're looking for. To hook this adapter up to your trailer brake controller, all you have to do is connect the four wires of the harness. It's going to provide the ground function, power, brake switch, and brake power. You connect those to the corresponding wires on the brake controller. If your brake controller came with a plug built into its wiring harness, you'll have to cut off the plug and connect the wires to themselves.

Again, all the connectors are included that you need and it's going to come with a detailed set of instructions. These are going to walk you through the installation process step by step. That's going to do do it for our review or the Tekonsha custom wiring adapter for trailer brake controllers.
