Installing Brake Controller in 1982 Chevy K10 Blazer


I have a 1982 Chevrolet, K10 Blazer that Im installing an early model energizer controller on. This controller is new, in box but as I said its an older model.I need info and part #s for any and all installation necessities. Some instructions, diagrams and installation video for the 1987 K10 pickup in your archives weld be very helpful.


Helpful Expert Reply:

To install a brake controller on your 1982 Blazer, you will need our Brake Controller Installation Kit, part # ETBC7, which includes everything needed to install a brake controller if your Blazer has a functioning 4-pole trailer connector. If you do not already have a 4-pole trailer connector in place, one can easily be installed using a Tow Ready T- One Connector, part # 118311.

I do not have any vehicle-specific installation instructions for your particular vehicle, but I have linked you to general instructions for the install kit as well as an install video showing the install kit being used on a 1993 Chevy Suburban. Even though the video shows a different vehicle, the install procedure for your Blazer will be almost identical. I have also linked you to a wiring diagram that you might find helpful.

Due to the fact that electronic components can degrade over time even though they are new in the box, I have linked you to a brake controller troubleshoot FAQ article and video, in case you should need it.
