Review of Tekonsha Wiring 6562


Today we're going to review part number 6562. This is the Tekonsha 7-Way Trailer Emulator Blade Style Connector. Now, this is used for proper installation and setup of a brake controller when the trailer's not readily available. Basically, you'd plug this into the 7-way on the vehicle and it will use a built in load module that will simulate electric magnet brakes on a trailer. Also, with these lights here, you'll be able to tell, it checks all the electrical continuity of all the circuits in that 7-way connector. Basically, what will happen is when you plug this into your 7-way, the first light that should come on is the 12-volt. There are 6 red lights here, as you can see.

Under each one, they have them labeled LT for left turn, TL for taillight, RT for right turn, and then 12-volt labeled here, BK for brake controller, and BU for backup lights. When you first plug this in you should get the 12-volt reading to show that you have power. From there, as you activate those specific functions like left turn, right turn, backup, and then taillights, those should all light up also. The one right in the middle on the bottom here is the BK, the brake. This one should not, it should be off until your brake control is activated. This will tell you by just plugging it into your 7-way, if your functions are working correctly in your vehicle. This is designed for use with Tekonsha Draw-Tite aftermarket brake controllers and also the Ford OEM Brake Controllers.

That should do it for the review on part number 6562. The Tekonsha 7-Way Trailer Emulator Blade Style Connector. .
