Today, on our 2013 Toyota Tundra, we'll be installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Brake Controller, part number 90195. In conjunction with the Tekonsha Plug and Play Wiring Adapter, part number 3040-P. To begin our install, we'll first go ahead and mount the brake controller bracket. For this application, I'll be using a couple of self tapping screws or you can also use the screws provided with the brake controller install kit. Once we have the brake controller mounted, we'll then go ahead and set the brake controller in the bracket and secure it with the screws provided in the install kit. Next, we'll need to go ahead and plug in our Plug and Play Wiring Adapter. Before I install the wiring harness, I'm using black electrical tape to wrap up the wires to hold the ground wire to the harness and to clean up our install look. Now with the taped up, we'll go ahead and take the white connector and plug it into the manufacturer's towing port, that's located on the driver's side, just above the kick panel and between it and the parking brake pedal. Now, with that connection made, we'll take the white wire, with the pre-attached ring terminal, which should be the ground wire for our harness, and secure here it to a body ground, which our parking brake pedal bracket is grounded so we can use our self tapping screw and secure it directly to that. Now, with those connections made, we'll go ahead and route our wire back over to the brake controller and install it into the back of the brake controller. Now we have it routed and installed, I'll go ahead and use a couple of black zip ties to secure our wiring up underneath the dash, and then we'll cut off the excess from the zip ties to clean up our install look. Now with that, we're ready to hit the road. That's about it the install of the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Brake Controller, part number 90195, in conjunction with the Tekonsha Plug and Play Wiring Adapter, part number 3040-P on our 2013 Toyota Tundra. . more

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser Part 2- Video

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser Part 2

All right next what we need to do is run this wire up to the front side of the vehicle up by our fire wall. Basically we just have to keep this as close to the frame as possible away from the exhaust and also as far to the left as possible to keep it away from the steering arm too. We have got our wire pulled through on the top here but we need to get to the left side as far as possible so push it back down and pull it on this side so it will come back close to our battery and our access point through the fire wall right here. And you will notice we ran the wire from here all the way up to the positive terminal here. :35 more

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2008 Toyota Tacoma

Today on this 2008 Toyota Tacoma pick up we will be installing Prodigy brake controller part number 90185 and we will also be using the brake control wiring kit part number ETBC7. We are going to start here at the rear of the vehicle and mount our 7-pole first. As you can see our vehicle here already has an existing 4-pole that we are going to be plugging our 7-pole adapter into. So in preparation I want to find a spot to go ahead and mount our 7-pole bracket to. On this Tacoma there is not a whole lot to work with. We typically like to mount it here on the back side of the bumper. Mounting at that angle would be kind of obnoxious. So I am actually going to be using part number 118136 which is a long bracket that will attach to the trailer hitch here with the use of a hose clamp. And then we can just mount our 7-pole bracket on like so. more

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2008 Toyota Sequoia

Today we are going to be installing brake control part number 90185, the Prodigy, along with the Prodigy wiring harness, part number 3040-P, on a 2008 Toyota Sequoia. We are inside the vehicle now, and the first thing that we are going to do is to locate the aftermarket port that we are going to plug the 3040-P into. The first thing we want to do is go ahead and remove this. There is actually a thumbscrew right here that needs to be removed and then there are a couple of pop rivets here that you just need to pry away from, then pull that out into position. You might need to actually remove a little bit of the bottom plate here, as well, to allow the plate to be removed. And you can see there are a bunch of electrical connections here. The port is kind of hidden that we are going to be connecting to. It is actually taped to this blue harness here, almost by the fuses. You can see I have already cut the tape here and I can pull the connector out, right there. more

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2007 Toyota Tundra

Today we are going to install on a 2007 Toyota Tundra and we will be installing the brake controller part number 39519 the Tekonsha Prodigy. We will also be using part number 3040-p from Tekonsha which lets you plug into the factory tow package in the vehicle. We begin our install by finding a spot to mount our bracket onto. Just go ahead and put it up there and see if you like it as a nice place to put a brake controller. It should give you a pretty good idea of how it fits. Makes sure you can access the thumb wheel on top. Seeing the LED screen is equally important. Now that you know it is in the correct position you can go ahead and mark the holes before you drill them. Now we will go ahead and drill out our holes after we have marked them. more
