Expert Reply:

On your 2001 Ford F250 Super Duty with the towing package the brake controller plug connector is located under the dash, near the steering column. You will be looking for a 6 prong rectangular plug. The location for the plug should be under the steering column toward the left.

If you have the factory brake controller adapter it will plug into the plug under the dash and the bare wires will be attached to the brake controller color to color. If you need a brake controller wiring adapter you will use the Draw-Tite Universal Brake Control Wiring Adapter, # 3035-S. This adapter will install the same way as the factory adapter.

I am sending links to show where the factory brake controller plug is located on your vehicle and to instructions for the Draw-Tite brake controller and the Draw-Tite brake control adapter.

If you have the factory 7-way connector on the rear of your vehicle that is all you will need for your brake controller to work.

If you have the factory 4-flat connector on your vehicle then you will need to use the Tow Ready Wiring Harness, # 118243, to get the 7-way connector on the rear of your vehicle. This wiring harness will plug into your factory harness located in the rear, underneath your truck near the driver’s side frame rail behind the bumper. It will also include the fuses and relays you will need to activate the tow package.

I am sending a link to the instructions on the Tow Ready wiring harness.
