Troubleshooting P2 Brake Controller 90885 Not Powering Up on a 2013 Honda Pilot


i recently bought this adapter and the prodigy P2 and am attempting to install it but i am not getting any power to the unit. My dealer added the 7 way plug to the Pilot the week we bought it so it did not come from already installed. I found what i believe to be the correct plug on the left side of the dash close to the parking brake and hooked it up but i do not get power to the brake controller when i start the vehicle. Any ideas? I do not see any other open plugs. Also i tested the P2 in my other vehicle that already is wired and the P2 worked as expected. Thanks.


Expert Reply:

It sounds like you are missing the fuse in your smaller, secondary under-hood fuse box that powers the brake controller. I checked in a manual for a 2012 Honda Pilot, and it was the number 14 fuse labeled Trailer E-Brake. It should be close if not identical in your 2013 model. There should be a diagram on the underside of the fuse box cover you can use to verify this.
