Where is the electric brake control harness connector located at in a 2008 dodge ram 1500?


If it was factory installed, under dash to the left or right side of steering column . I do not think this is a standard option and you may have to make one from schematic yourself.

I am installing an electric trailer brake controller on my 2008 Ford F- 150 STX pick up truck and I need to know where it plugs in under the dash


Ford's factory supplied brake controller harness end can be found loosely stuffed under the dash, usually just above the driver's right leg. A Ford harness has a rectangular shaped connector.
Simply connect the brake controller harness connector into the vehicle connector. Zip tie the harness wires to another harness to prevent the wiring from hanging down near your feet.
I hope this helps.

I have a 05 Denali XL 6.0 and i can't find the trailer brake harness under the dash. Please help!!


Hi, the provision for the electric brake controller is located in the electrical center , just to the right of the parking brake. There is a plastic nut, that holds the cover on, and beneath this cover are ports where a connector may be plugged in. A factory harness must be obtained from a Chevy, or GMC dealer for the install. This harness will be labled with wire locations, as it will be attached to your brake controller, then plugged into the slot in the upper l/h corner of the electrical center. The plug will only fit in the appropriate slot. You will then need to put the provided J- fuse into the underhood fuse block. Tis should be the only missing fuse. You should be well on your way, after these few easy steps. Good luck...Coop

I have a 2001 F150 and am trying to find out where the factory installed plug in is for the brake controller wiring. I have the brake controller and the instructions say to read the truck owners manual...


Hi. There is a grey plug with 6 wires right behind your OBDII diagnostic port on the lower dash board above your accelerator pedal.

The color of the wires on the plug are blue, green, red, white and brown. The wires are as follows:
Blue....electric trailer brake feed
Green....brake pedal switch
Red...12v postitive...always hot
White....ground
Brown....interior vehicle illumination (not used)

The factory wire harness that you will need to attach your brake controller will plug right into this plug. The factory wires are colored the same as above.

After-market and brake conroller wires are colored as follows:
Blue....electric trailer brake feed
Red.....brake pedal switch
White....ground
Black....12v positive

I have a ford factory wiring plug with 5 wires, I


If you are talking about the trailer brake pigtail under the dash, the brown wire is for the illumination on the brake controller, if applicable.

My reese hand held controller did not use this, so I just blind end tapped it into the harness.
If your brake controller does not have background illumination, then you don't need the brown wire.
Sounds like the controller is similar.

I do not have power on the aux. terminal in the trailer plug on a 2008 dodge ram. Any ideas?


You have got 7 pin trailer connector that was included in the optional trailer tow package. This trailer tow package also includes an electric trailer brake wiring provision that terminates at a connector located on top of the large body harness connection under the instrument panel to the left of the break pedal, as well as an electric trailer brake pigtail harness and an instruction card that are stored in the glove box when the vehicle is shipped from the factory. You will need to add an electric brake controller of your choice that will plug-in to the harness and that will also give you power on your auxiliary circuit.

Need to install an electric brake on a 2004 dodge 1500 pick up under the dash


Get yourself a good trailer brake controller. If you have the tow pkg, which most of those did, then go get the adapter harness from Dodge (about $25) and wire that into the aftermarket controller (instructions will explain how to do this) and off you go.

If no tow pkg, then you'll have to wire one from scratch and if you are not comfortable doing it or have never done anything like it, you might consider having a repair factility do it for you? That way if it breaks....you get my point.

Good Luck

Trailer hitch...no running lights (2004)


You'll have to follow the BROWN wire from the factory connector(with the running lights on of course) to the trailer connector and make sure you are getting power all the way to the two lamp fixtures. If so you've probably got two burned out 1157 bulbs or an inline fuse in the factory harness/ trailer harness.Good Luck, Dana

04 DODGE RAM TRAILER BRAKE WIRING


If you have a seven pin connector in your tow package, you should be wired for electric brakes. just need the brake box.usually in your owners manual it will show you where to plug the box into. the best thing to do is contact your local chrysler dealer and ask them.if you give them your VIN number they should be able to tell you for sure.
