How to Install a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2005 Ford Expedition

Today this 2005 Ford Expedition were going to install part number TK90160 from Tekonsha. This is a primus brake controller. Were also going to use the adapter cord, part number 3635-P, also from Tekonsha. Well go ahead and start off by working with this part. Well plug into a towing port thats underneath the dash. In this case its behind the data port, alongside the wires that goes to it.

Its a gray connector so well take our adapter cord and plug into that. Well leave that alone for now. Now well go ahead and take the bracket for our primus brake controller. Well go ahead and attach it to the dash at the bottom part, but still within easy reach. Now well take our adapter cord, well plug into the brake controller and then attach the brake controller to the bracket.

With our brake controller attached you can see we have power going to the brake controller. We have two dots. Youll also see a NC for no connection. Well go ahead and hook up a trailer to it and you can see a C for connection. Well go ahead and remove the manual override and you can see how the numbers go up and down.

It looks like everything is working. Thatll finish it for part number TK90160 from Tekonsha, the primus brake controller on our 2005 Ford Expedition.
