Review of Tekonsha Brake Controller TK90160



Why does controller work sometimes and other it reads . . Or n. c.

Etrailer Expert

Mike L.


Usually, if the controller is working intermittently it's caused by one of two or three possible problems. 1) The connector on the trailer or the vehicle could be corroded, dirty or damaged. Check that. 2) The brake magnets could be excessively worn. Pull one or two of the hubs, and examine the front face of the magnets that ride against the inside surface of the drum. If you can see any of the copper windings inside the magnet, they need replacing. 3) Check the brake output circuit for a loose/poor connection. Long story short, unless you have a good connection between the controller and the brake magnets, you'll get a poor connection that the controller might not 'pick up'. Give 'er a look and let me know what you find.



how does tk90160 get install with etbc7?

We've got a video on a Toyota Tacoma using the ETBC7 kit and this controller. Should be a good outline for you to follow, regarless of what truck you're installing it on.
