How to Install the Brake Buddy Select 3 Portable Supplemental Braking System on a 2017 Ford Edge

Shane: Hi I'm Shane with Today I'm going to walk with you how I installed the Brake Buddy Select 3 portable supplemental braking system on your 2017 Ford Edge. A braking system is going to be required by law in any vehicle being flat-towed. It's going to be one of the main components to getting your vehicle set up to be flat towed… see more >

Hello, thank you for the video, it's a good start, but it totally skipped over installation of the breakaway switch, since the vehicle already had one installed from a previous unit. It would be helpful to provide a video that covers the breakaway switch.

Hopefully we'll be able to get a vehicle in that doesn't already have this piece installed so that way we can cover this part a little more in detail for you. For the breakaway switch you're going to route those 2 wires back to the flat connector wire (like Shane mentioned) to make your connections. The box will be installed with a screw to a location at the front of the vehicle that is essentially up to the person doing the installation. So that part of the installation is a little more simple, but I do agree that it would be good to get a video of every part being installed in the future.

Video did not address brake lights on the toad. We could use more videos on the brake buddy installation in various vehicles.

What specific questions did you have with regards to the brake lights? The signal lights on your toad would actually be activated/powered by a separate wiring system. The Brake Buddy system is "fairly" new to our lineup so we're still working on growing our video selection.
