How to Install a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2002 Ford F350

Today, on our 2002 Ford F350, we're going to be installing Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller, Part Number 90885. In conjunction with the brake controller, we'll also be using the Tekonsha Plug-in Wiring Adapter for electric brake controllers, Part Number 3035-P.To begin with, we will go ahead and lower dash panel below the steering wheel by twisting the four corners of the panel and pulling it off. With this removed, we'll go ahead and locate the plug that we will need to plug into underneath the dash.The connector is a gray connector and we will need to take the end of the plug-in wiring adapter and plug into this. You want to make sure it goes in all the way to where you hear it click and lock into place.Next, we'll go ahead and pick out a location to secure our mounting bracket. On this particular vehicle, there was already a brake controller installed before, but we'll go ahead and change out to the new bracket.We'll go ahead and make the connection to the back of the brake controller. Again, you'll notice that there is a clip on the one side and you need to make sure that it's locked into place firmly on the back of the brake controller.We'll go ahead and use the two screws and put the brake controller up into the bracket.

There's two choices -- you can either put it on the top hole or the bottom hole. In this case, we chose the bottom hole. Now that that's done, we'll go ahead and test to make sure that we have connection for a new brake controller.With no trailer hooked up, you'll see an NC when you pull the manual override on the bottom of the brake controller. With the trailer hooked up, when you pull the manual override, you will see a C meaning that the trailer is connected and it is getting power to it.You can do boost one, boost two and boost three. The boost feature allows you to customize the braking for how heavy a trailer you're pulling.The roller knob on the upper left is used to adjust the sensitivity for the maximum brake power you want to come on.

Now, we'll go ahead and put the lower dash panel back on that we removed earlier by pushing the four tabs back in and turning them to lock them in place. That will complete the installation of the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller, Part Number 90885 on our 2002 Ford F350.
