Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2010 Chevrolet Traverse

Speaker 1: Today on this 2010 Chevrolet Traverse, we'll be having a look at and showing you how to install the Curt trailer brake controller, part number C51110. To ease our installation, we'll also be using the universal wiring adapter for Curt trailer brake controllers, part number C51515, as well as the etrailer.com universal installation kit for electric trailer brake controllers, part number ETBC7. Here's what our brake controller looks like installed. Now the reason you're gonna want to brake controller is this will allow you to use electric trailer brakes on your trailer. Now this is a time delayed brake controller. So what this is gonna do is give you a very affordable solution to control your trailer brakes, as opposed to inaudible 00:00:49 ones, which are more expensive.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2012 Chevrolet Traverse

Today on our 2012 Chevrolet Traverse, we're going to take a look at and show you how to install the Tekonsha voyager trailer brake controller. This is a proportional controller that works great for one up to four axles. Part number is 39510. We're also going to be using wiring kit ETVC7, and pigtail adapter, part number 3026-P. The voyager is a proportional system. What this means is that the controller is going to send braking force to our trailer in proportion to how our vehicle is breaking. The accelerometer that's located inside of the controller senses how quickly our vehicle is stopping and applies that power to the rear of the trailer to keep them in line with one another.



Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2010 Chevrolet Traverse

Today, on our 2010 Chevy Traverse, we'll be installing the Tekonsha Primus IQ trailer brake controller for 1 to 3 axles, part number TK90160. The additional items we'll be using to complete the brake package hookup will ring terminals, part number 44-5356A. We'll also be using a total of approximately 35 feet of the jacketed 2 wire, in 12 gauge. It's part number 12-2-1. We'll also be using 2 breakers on the installation. We'll be using 1 inline 20 amp breaker, which is part number 9506P, and one 40 amp inline circuit breaker, which is part number 9510. Now, because this vehicle has already had an ETBC7 started on it, we're just going to need to do a little bit of clean up work. The purple wire will not be used, and we will just take that up out of the way, and we will take part of our duplex wire, which is a white and a black wire, and we will connect the black wire to the black wire here, using a butt connector. We will also go ahead and connect the white wire to the blue wire. Again, we'll go ahead and use a butt connector to make this connection. Now, once we have this connection made, we're going to go ahead and clean up the wiring back here by using some zip ties, and electrical tape. Now, we're going to need to go ahead and route the gray duplex wire to the front of the vehicle. You want to make sure you stay away from any moving parts, areas that are sharp, or may become hot. We're going to need to find a grommet or something to poke into the cab of the vehicle. Now, this grommet, when you go from the inside of the vehicle, is actually to the right side of the gas pedal. Now, when you push the white wire in through the grommet, we'll go ahead then and push the additional white and black wire, but we're going to leave it in the gray sheathing for now. Next, we'll need to fish a second duplex wire, along with the left over black wire from the original duplex wire, into the engine compartment under the hood. Underneath the pedals here, there's a kick panel, or a plastic covering, that will need to be removed. There are 3 push fasteners that will need to be removed in order for this panel to come down. A flat head screwdriver, or a trim panel removal tool, works great to get these out. The first duplex cable that we routed into the cab with the white wire will get wired to our brake controller. Now, for the red wire, we are going to use the factory tow section, and we will find which wire is only hot when the brake pedal is pressed in. As you can see here, using our test light, we find that the white wire is essentially the brake switch wire.
