Will the Prodigy RF Brake Controller Work with a 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Touring

The Prodigy RF brake controller # TK94FR can be used with your 2017 Chrysler Pacifica and it will not void the warranty on the vehicle. This controller installs on the trailer so nothing is being hardwired into the vehicle.

In order for the RF to work the vehicle just needs to have a functional 7-Way trailer connector. That is one the RF gets its power and how it knows when the brake pedal is being pressed in the vehicle.

If your Pacifica Touring does not have a 7-Way trailer connector then one will need to be added. If the vehicle does not already have a 4-Way flat connector as well then you would start by installing # 118723. This harness tees into the tail light wiring. It also will not void the warranty because a vehicle warranty cannot be voided just by adding aftermarket parts (unless the added parts caused the problem in the first place).

Once that is installed you would just need the 7-Way, # 37185, about 25 feet of wire # 12-1-1 (sold by the foot) and a 40 amp circuit breaker # PK54540. On the 37185 the white wire will need to be grounded to the vehicle frame. The blue and purple wires won't be used for this application so they can be taped up and stowed out of the way. The black wire will need to connect to the 12-1-1 wire which will then get ran to the front of the vehicle and connect to the positive battery terminal via the circuit breaker. I also recommend wiring kit # HM51010 if you don't already have electrical tools and connectors.

I have included some links that will help. Not all of the information in the links applies to this particular information but they are good guides that will help.
