Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2011 Nissan Xterra

Today on our 2011 Nissan Xterra we're going to be taking a look at the Teknosha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller for one to three axles, part number TK90160 and we'll be using this in conjunction with the Tekonsha plugin wiring adapter for brake controllers for Nissans, part number 3050-P. Here's what this brake controller looks like once it's installed in the vehicle. This brake controller is going to do a good job of giving us power to our brakes on our trailer that's behind us. This one, we don't currently have it connected to a trailer so if we hit the manual override, you'll see it shows NC for no connection, but when connected it'll show you the power output that it's putting through to a trailer. Here on the side we've got this turn dial to adjust your gain level for the amount of power being sent back to the brakes on your trailer. Here on the top we've got this blue button and that's going to let you go through to your three boost levels so that you can adjust the amount of boost that's going to go back to the trailer brakes. This brake controller is nice and easy to use and it's going to do a great job of providing proportional braking power to the brakes on your trailer and it does that by the inertia sensor that it has inside. You're able to mount it from zero degrees all the way up to 90 degrees in the vertical plane. What I like most about this brake controller is how easy it is to use and operate because it's as simple as setting it and if you want to set a boost level, you can do that.

Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2001 Nissan Xterra

Today on this 2001 Nissan Xterra we're going to install part number 90195 from Tekonsha, the P3 brake controller. To install our brake controller we're also going to use part number ETBC7 to install it, and we're going to work with that part number first. We're going to take the seven pole adapter and connect that to the gray cable in the kit. We'll use the butt connector to make our connections, and we'll use the color code as follows: We're going to go black to black, and white to blue. Our black wire will be used for our 12 volt power supply going out to the seven pole connector, and our blue wire will be our brake controller output. Now that blue wire is going to change from blue to white and then it will go back to blue eventually at the brake controller.
