Parts Needed to Install 7-Way and Brake Controller on 2009 Toyota Highlander without Wiring  


I have a 2009 Toyota Highlander with the factory tow package wiring but no converter plugged in under the dash, so do need that part that I will be hooking up to a 12 ft tandem axle cargo trailer with electric brakes installed. Which part or set of parts do I need? If I were hooking up to a trailer with a 4-way plug, I believe it would be part #56042 is there an equivalent kit to get me to a 7-way connection? Thanks!

You will need to start with a 4-way on your 2009 Toyota Highlander that does not have a converter under the dash. For that you would want the # 118449.

From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached installation instructions and an install video for this product as well. This adapter will give you a 7-way and a 4-way so if you towed a trailer with either connector you'd be set.

For a brake controller I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup.
