Recommended Electric Trailer Brake Controller for a 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter with Tow Package


We have a 2016 sprinter that is pre wired as part of the utility package that came with the van. We need the wiring harness to plug in the supplied rectangular outlet and module that plugs in under the dash. Do you have these items?

It sounds like you're looking for an electric brake controller for your 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.

There isn't a confirmed plug and play wiring adapter for your van. If you have a connector under the dash send me a picture of it and I'll see if we have something that will work for you.

Since you have the tow package with a 7-way trailer connector you'll just need the wiring kit # 5506. You'll also need a brake pedal switch # RM-751475 because of the wiring system of the van. Check out the video I've attached from when we installed a controller on a Sprinter 3500. Yours won't be as much work since that one didn't have the tow package but parts of it will be the same.

For the brake controller I recommend the Prodigy P3 # 90195. It's one of the best controllers on the market with an LCD and 5 storable settings.
