Brake Controller Install
Posted 26 April 2002 - 03:14 PM
BLUE - (brake power)Goes to blue on the 7pin plug
WHITE - (negative wire) ??
BLACK - (positive wire) ??
RED - (brake light wire) ??
I understand that the black and white can be connected to the fuse box that is under the hood but where?
according to the standard equipment of my truck there is a 7 wire trailering harness already in my truck. Where do I connect the blue wire for this harness?
And I am totally lost on where to red wire goes?
can someone help?

I'm not sure about the older style trucks with the factory towing package, but on my '01 there was a harness in the glove box, that plugs into the fuse box behind the e-brake peddle. This harness had 5 wires in it. The light brown wire is not used.
Ford trucks have a mudular plug under the dash that you would plug this supplied harness into, and then splice into it's pigtail.
JP has an older body style 3/4 ton... he may be able to help you more.

I installed a Tekonsha Prodigy in my '02. The truck came with a wire harness that has a plug on one end and bare wires on the other. I connected (soldered) the bare wire ends on the harness to the wires on my controller as follows:
Controller black to harness red (+12 volts)
Controller red to harness light blue (stoplight)
Controller white to harness black (ground)
Controller blue to harness dark blue (trailer brakes)
Harness brown wire is not used.
Then the plug fits in the fuse box under the dash by the left kickpanel. It couldn't have been easier.
