  • Wired to Brake Controller
  • Tekonsha
  • Vehicle Specific

Streamline the installation of your trailer brake controller with this custom adapter. Simply connect the wires of the harness to your brake controller and then plug the other end into the junction box beneath your vehicle's dash.


Features:

  • Pigtail wiring adapter eases installation of your electric trailer brake controller
  • Connector end plugs into the built-in port beneath the dash of your vehicle
  • Wire end connects to the wires on your brake controller with the included butt connectors
    • Compatible with time-delayed and proportional brake controllers from TrailerMate, Draw-Tite, and Tekonsha
  • Limited 1-year warranty


Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

To install your electric brake controller, you need to connect the wiring of the controller to your vehicle. Certain auto manufacturers offer pre-wired options, typically known as tow packages, wherein wiring is run for you from the dash to the trailer connector on the back of your vehicle. When this is done, a port is installed at your dash so that you can easily plug in a brake controller.


This adapter plugs into the 4-pin connector in your vehicle's junction box. The box is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, just above the carpeting.


To hook this adapter up to your trailer brake controller, just connect the 4 wires of the harness - ground, power, brake switch, and brake power - to the corresponding wires on the brake controller. If your brake controller came with a plug built into its wiring harness, you will have to cut off the plug and connect to the wires themselves.

  • Brake Controller Install Harness Recommendation For 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500
    A 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 uses a different brake controller install harness from a 2006 model. You'd have to swap the harness for a part # 3016-S and you'd be set. You'll need to splice the wires of the # 3016-S to the wires of your controller matching color for color and you'd be set.

  • Brake Controller Install Harness Recommendation for 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500
    We have the brake controller install harness part # 3016-S which will plug into the port under the dash of your 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 and will give you 4 blunt cut wires you can then wire to your brake controller. Or if you have a Tekonsha controller like the P2 part # 90885 you can use the part # 3016 and it will plug directly into the controller's connector as well.

  • 2012 Chevy Silverado 1500 and 2010 Lexus GX 460 Brake Controller Install
    On your 2012 Chevy Silverado no plug is present under the dash for the install of a brake controller, but the needed wires are already run. You will connect the brake controller wiring with the vehicle wiring already present under the dash. I attached an install video and help article that covers how this is done. To install this controller in a 2010 Lexus GX 460 will require the install harness part # 3040-P instead and a second install bracket part # 7686.

  • Install Harness Recommendation for Redarc Tow-Pro Elite in 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500
    The easiest solution to install the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 you referenced in your 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 is going to be with the install harness part # 331-TPH-010 which plugs directly into the controller and into the port under the dash of your truck without any splicing required. If you instead went with the # 3016-S you'd actually match the wires color for color to the brake controller not the truck and then plug the connector in on your...

  • Installation of Aftermarket Brake Controller in 2018 Chevy Silverado 3500 with Factory Controller
    Factory Integrated Brake Controllers do not always function as well as they hoped. You will be much happier with the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 which will give you much more adjustability and function settings not available with your factory integrated controller. There are connections under your dash and connections under your hood you will need to address for the new controller function and disconnection of the factory controller.

  • Best Brake Controllers for a 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500
    For your 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 I recommend the P3 brake controller # 90195. This controller has easy to understand diagnostics, it can be mounted a full 360 degrees in the direction of travel, and it can plug right into your truck using wiring harness # 3016. Or if you want something that is going to take up less dash space but still give you great proportional braking I recommend the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite, # RED44FR and wiring harness # 3016-S to plug it into the truck.

  • Where to Install Brake Controller on a 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500
    The best place to mount a brake controller like the Tekonsha Voyager # 39510 is under the driver's side dash in a place so that it is within easy reach in the even that you need to activate the manual override. Technically it could be mounted to the floor but since that will be a little out of reach I recommend to the right of your dash under the steering wheel as you can see from the attached photo. This helps to keep it out of the way especially when getting in and out of your vehicle....

  • Where is the Wiring Harness Located For a Brake Controller On a 2016 GMC Sierra 1500
    There is existing wiring under the dash on your 2016 GMC Sierra 1500. Your truck comes with a pre-wired factory tow package which means it is set up to easily install a brake controller. The plug-in wiring harness sits right under the dashboard above your brake pedal. This wiring harness has a plug-in end which will allow a brake controller to be easily installed without splicing or cutting into the wire. I recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Brake Controller # 90195 for your vehicle....

  • Is there a Brake Controller that Fits in the Dash Pocket on a 2015 Chevy Silverado
    If you were to use the PowerTrac # 39523 it does have all of its controls at the front where they would be accessible. Since this is a time delay control it doesn't have to be mounted in any specific orientation. This controller is 3 inches wide, 5 inches long, and 1-1/4 inches tall. If you can tell me the amount of space in the pocket on your 2015 Chevy Silverado 1500 I can determine if something else might work better. In addition to the brake controller the only other part you will...

    It sounds like you have installed your Redarc Tow-Pro Elite trailer brake controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 using the custom GM wiring adapter # 3016-S. This is the correct harness for the 2018 Cadillac Escalade with factory 7-way connector.

For the Tow-Pro Elite a flashing error code may remain until you unplug the trailer and wait at least...

  • How to Install a Brake Controller on a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
    To install a brake controller on your 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 4x4, you will just need the vehicle specific plug-in adapter. These adapters are usually brand specific. For example, if you go with the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 brake controller, # 90195, which is one of the top brake controllers on the market, then you will want to use their adapter, # 3016.

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 LTZ
    We do not carry the factory brake controller for your 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 but we have numerous aftermarket options that have proven to be far superior to the factory controllers. For a model that takes up very little space I recommend the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite # RED44FR. Unlike most other controllers the interface with the Tow-Pro Elite is just a little knob that, once installed, looks like an OEM knob. And to plug this controller into the factory brake controller port use...

  • Install Harness Recommendation for Installing Redarc Tow-Pro Elite in 2014 GMC Sierra 1500
    You are on the right track. To install the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite Trailer Brake Controller # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 in your 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 will require you to use the install harness part # 3016-S which is very similar to the # 3016 except it doesn't have the Tekonsha specific connector. Instead it has just the GM connector for the trucks wiring and 4 blunt cut wires to wire to the Redarc. You could use the # 3016 if you wanted to but you'd have to cut off the Tekonsha connector.

  • Troubleshooting Factory Brake Controller on 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500 Z71
    For the factory brake controller on your 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500, the factory brake controller will install to the same location as an aftermarket wiring harness like # 3016. The black box to the left of your brake pedal is the location with the middle left shown in the video being the plug location within that box. I have heard that if your vehicle did not come with the factory brake controller it can't be added (which would explain it not working), but I'm not confident about that...

  • Brake Controller for a 2016 Chevy Silverado with a Clean Installation Look
    I do have an alternate solution for you to have a clean-looking brake controller installation but if you are wanting to install an OEM controller on your 2016 Chevy Silverado then you would need to speak with a Chevy dealer for information about that as we only carry aftermarket controllers.

Another option you have would be the Redarc Tow Pro Elite part # RED44FR which basically only requires you to mount a small knob on your interior that controls the controller and the brain of it mounts out of sight. I attached a picture of what the knob looks like for you to check out as well.
