Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

Brake-Control Adapter Port

This adapter plugs into the connector behind your vehicle's dashboard. To reach the connector, first locate the notch in the access panel in the center of the dash, near the passenger side. Using a trim panel puller, carefully pry the panel out and undo the locking tabs to remove the panel. You will find the mating connector behind this portion of your dashboard.


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.

Perfect fit for our Minnie Winnie (on the 2016 Ford E450 chassis). The cable is a perfect fit, and the installation electrically is a breeze. Where to mechanically mount our controller is another story. Taking out the accessory plate was also a slight challenge, the existing battery boost switch is a bit large. The switch wants to stay in the dash as the switch cutout on the dash is a bit too small, it holds the assembly in place loosely on the dash. It requires a bit of moving the trim plate, and the metal backing plate behind it back and forth, up and down to break the switch mounting tabs free from the dash after removing the two trim screws. Once the trim plate has been removed, the factory controller cable is in plain view and is the 3034-P snaps right on.

Since my controller travels between the Minnie and another vehicle, I didn't want to do a permanent installation, thus there is no clean final installation picture shown. There is room for a controller to the right of the existing switch (if I were to make a rectangular cutout in the trim plate, but I may end up just using a Velcro attachment of the controller bracket to the top of the dash. Under dash mount is not an option as you couldn't see the controller or easily reach its controls.

Great unit, and good marketing technique to follow up a year later!

2011 Ford F-350 Super Duty

My factory 2011 F350 integrated brake controller want recognizing any of our trailers, after cleaning and greasing connectors and chasing wires. I just installed the Tekonsha P3 with Ford factory harness. It took all of ten minutes as I already knew where I wanted it placed. I plugged the trailer and was instantly recognized. Super quick and easy. I mounted it on the drop down cup holder; easy to see and use the controller and it doesn’t interfere with the cup holders when in use.




by:

This brake controller was installed in a motorhome on a E450 Ford chassis that came with the Ford brake controller harness installed from the factory. Although factory wired for a Ford brake controller the Ford brake controller would not work because the motorhome did not come with the digital instrument panel and steering wheel with the required controls.

The Tekonsha brake controller with the Ford adapter harness was very simple to install, plug and play. The Tekonsha brake controller also detected a brake fault that the Ford controller in my F150 did not show. The Tekonsha brake controller works perfectly stopping my 7000 lbs. enclosed car hauler trailer.

2011 Ford E-Series Cutaway

I purchased this harness for a 2012 Forest River Sunseeker Class C RV.
It has a 2011 Ford E450 Van front. I did some research on etrailer about possible locations of the factory brake controller wiring, and found out exactly where it was.
(Behind the coin holder in the dash).

The hardest part of the whole install was freeing the factory harness from the harness tie down behind the coin holder.

Installed a Prodigy P2 brake controller, hooked up the 3034-P harness, and boom!
Everything works great.

2016 Ford F-250 Super Duty

Great brake controller! I installed this unit in my 2016 Ford F250 4x4 in just over 30 minutes. Of course, I spent a little time (about an hour or so) in advance on the etrailer website researching how to install this controller. After watching a few videos and reading a few detailed reviews I was ready to go. I did order a plastic trim removal tool set on [site] prior to this installation. ** NOTE to etrailer: Think about offering a set of trim removal tools for sale to your customers - very important!**. I figured the $25.00 spent on the trim removal tool set would ensure no damage to the interior of my new truck and I was right. This is my second or third brake controller purchased from etrailer. Fast shipping and great products! Thank you!!

Good news, Joe! We do sell trim removal tools and for less than you paid on the other site! They may be found at the following link:

PlugNPlay Mini Winnie on an E250 chassis. Easier installation if you ignore all the usual instructions messing with the upper dash panel and just pull back the engine cover. Reach up there, pull the connector down, and you're good to go.

  • Where is Brake Controller Wiring for 2015 Ford F-350
    If the brake controller has 4 wires behind it that aren't connected to anything that means somehow the brake controller wiring was removed. Either accidentally or someone got under the dash and cut the wiring. I attached a picture that shows where the brake controller wiring is found. I also attached an install video for harness on a similar truck. You would need to check those out and then compare that to the wiring of your truck so that you can find the needed harness.

  • Brake Controller Install Connector Recommendation for 2010 Ford E-350 Van
    Actually all you need to install a brake controller in your 2010 Ford E-350 Van is the correct install harness part # 3034-P. Basically this plugs into the back of your brake controller and then plugs into the port under the dash of the van. If you watch the install video attached you can see a van just like yours having a brake controller installed.

    If your 2013 Ford F-250 has the factory integrated brake controller then the harness for it is plugged directly into the back of it.

    I spoke with one of my contacts at Tekonsha, who tells me that if this is occurring while the trailer is NOT connected to the vehicle, there is a short circuit somewhere on the brake controller output circuit. Sever the blue wire exiting the rear of the controller (be sure to leave enough room to reconnect it if need be). If this fixes the problem, you have confirmed the short. If this is the case, take a length of 10-1-1 wire, connect one end to the blue wire leading to the controller....
