Installing an Aftermarket Brake Controller on a 2021 Ford F-150


Im planning to buy a 2021 f-150. It is coming with the hitch and trailer wiring option. I plan to buy this brake controller based on previous model I owned. Im a bit concerned. After unsuccessfully looking for videos on 2021 f-150 after market installation, I came across a ford forum. In the forum. It was mentioned that 2021 ford f-150s do not have the capability for after market brake controller installation. The forum referenced Ford BBAS SVA Q-330. Can I somewhat easily install this brake controller on a 2021 F-150?


Expert Reply:

Installing an aftermarket brake controller, like the Tekonsha Primus IQ # TK90160, is definitely possible. That being said, not all of the 2021 models have the power run to get the controller up and running, so you may need to add # BRK-ELECKIT. This will add the power needed and is not very difficult to install. Especially since your vehicle will have a factory port under the dash. The Tekonsha # 22292 will plug directly into this port and then directly into the back of the # TK90160.

To test your factory plug for power, you will need to use something like the wire tester # PTW2993. The port that will supply the power to the controller will be in the bottom right corner of the port under the dash. If you do have power, then the # BRK-ELECKIT will not be needed. If there is no power, I included an install video we did with one for reference.
