Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

This adapter plugs into the 4-pin connector on your vehicle's built-in brake control wiring harness. The harness is located in the cargo area on the passenger side, near the tail light.


To install your electric brake controller you need to connect the wiring of the controller to your vehicle. Certain manufacturers offer pre-wired options, typically known as tow packages, wherein these wires are run for you from the dash to the trailer connector on the back of your vehicle. Often, a brake controller wiring harness is included with your tow package. This harness plugs into a port beneath your dash and connects to the four wires of the brake controller. If, however, you have a brake controller with a plug in place of the four loose wires, you can use the Tekonsha adapter.


This adapter requires no hardwiring. It is designed to plug directly into your electric brake controller for the simplest installation possible. Because there are no wires to connect, installation is not permanent. You can unplug and remove your brake controller at any time and securely stow it away.

Video Transcript for Review of Tekonsha BMW X5 Trailer Brake Controller Wiring Adapter - TK29FR

Hi there I'm Michael with etrailer.com. Today, we're going to take a quick look at this Tekonsha plug-in wiring adapter for electric brake controllers. This is going to allow you to quickly and easily install your electric brake controller on your 2007 through 2020 BMW X5. And now that does have the condition that it does not have the factory trailer connection and it does have the factory seven way already installed on it. But if you do have a BMW X5, within that year range this adapter is going to plug into the four pin connector on your vehicles built in brake control wiring harness which is located in your cargo area on the passenger side, near your tail light. So they do include instructions on how to get to that, it includes pictures and everything, so that you can get this installed properly.

But once you have that plugged in you will use the 19 and a half feet of wire. That's included in this harness here to route up to the driver's side dash, where your trailer brake controllers control unit is going to be mounted. And then you'll mount or you'll plug that in to the other end here. And that will then send the signal from your brake controller out to your trailer's brakes. Now, this is going to be compatible with time delayed brake controllers including the Draw-Tite activator one, two, and three and the Tekonsha PowerTrac.

It is also going to be compatible with the proportional brake controllers, including Tekonsha prodigy P2, P3, Primus IQ, and Voyager. So if you have any of those systems this is going to work because it is going to just plug right in to the plug on your brake controller. You're not going to have to worry about splicing wires like you do with most brake controllers and systems. So very easy to just get plugged right in place. And because it isn't, it is not hardwired.

If you do need to remove the brake controller say when you're not towing, you only tow infrequently. So you don't want to have that brake controller mounted all the time. You can very easily unplug it and have it stored somewhere safe and out of your way. So very nice option with that plugin both ins just plug right in place. So you will probably want to leave this installed because it is gonna involve routing it.

and it's going to be kind of labor intensive but you should only have to do it the one time. If you do want to remove it you can just unplug the brake controller itself and leave this all under your dash, where it's housed. They do include a few zip ties here for you as you're routing this back or forward to your dash so that you can keep it contained and attached to where you need it to be for that. As I said, they do include instructions on how to get everything installed properly. So I think this is going to be a really nice option. That plugin compatibility or capability is going to make it very easy to get all those connections made rather than having to worry about splicing wires and that sort of thing. And this is going to be the option for you to make sure that your brake controller signal is getting out to your trailer so that the trailers brakes will be applied when you want them to. So it's going to complete our look for today. Again, I'm Michael with etrailer.com. I hope this video has been helpful for you in deciding if this is the right fit for you. We do have lots of towing products available. So if this isn't what you're needing I'd encourage you to take a look at some or some of our other products. That's going to complete our look. Thanks for watching. We'll see you next time..
