Gang - I'm asking this for my old man. Apparently the plug-in location on his 08 (d-max) is different than my 06.

He's trying to find the recepticle for the trailer-brake controller and he's having trouble. The brake controller is a prodigy and he bought it with the pre-terminated GM harness.....just cant find where it plugs in on his truck.

Appreciate any help you can offer.

Usely it's a bunch of wire taped to a big wire harness by the brake pedal.......there might a be connection or you may not have one......I've email them a couple of time already for schematic for different truck for my P3 prodigy......give them the prodigy model number and info about the truck and your email address and they'll email you a schematic/diagram on how to connect everything.

Sadly there is no more plug n play trailer brake controller
installation for the GMT-900s.

As stated the loose wires are under the dash usually taped to
the steering column/brake pedal area.

Also you have to hook up 2 loose wires in the engine compartment
to the underhood fuse center.

I checked the link & noticed that they are referring to the "Left & Right studs" when looking from the front of the vehicle. Anyone that has been around a vehicle, knows that left & right is referenced from the driver's seat looking forward.

Heres a you-tube video of the trailer brake and underhood wire
hook up. Forward to about 3:50 and they show the correct studs
to hook the 2 wires to.



The 2 studs are on the front of the underhood box (as in the front of the truck)
The trailer power wire connects to the driver side post.
Brake controller wire on the passenger side post.

sonjaab, thanks for the link to the Youtubr video. One final question, which fuse positions (labelling) do you install the req'd 30A & 40A fuses? They say they have to be installed on the webpage & video, but don't actually show their installation.

TIA
