Prodigy RF Brake Controller Installation in 2015 Acura MDX with Factory 7-Way Wiring


Hi I have a 2015 Acura MDX with the factory tow package and would like to install a brake controller. Is there a factory plug in the car that the controller will hook up to? and what plug would I buy to plug into that. And do you know the location of the plug. Thanks


Expert Reply:

In your 2015 Acura MDX with a factory-installed 7-way wiring setup the best trailer brake controller to use is the Curt Echo # C51180.

You will not have to crawl under the dash to find a connector (there isn't one on this vehicle) since the Echo offers wireless operation and simply plugs into the the Acura's existing 7-Way. The controller then gets paired to your smart phone and this is what is used to adjust any settings or activate the manual override. Otherwise the Echo will automatically send power back to the trailer brakes in proportion to your vehicle's deceleration.

I linked the written instructions as well as a video to guide your installation.
