It's not urgent, I first need to know if its possible so I can purchase the appropiate unit, and then the installation details.
Thanks for your help
Yes I plan on towing a Trailer / caravan and I need to know what is required to install an electric brake system to suit these requirements. I heard it is important to make sure that the fitting is done correctly as considerable damage can be done if not correctly installed. Hope you can help.
No I'm looking at a controller installed in the cabin which is adjustable
ie a Teconcha P3 or similar. Should I look for someone else to help
Yes the controller works off the brake light switch signal to control the electric brakes. I am not 100% familiar with the system you mentioned. i will open up the question so another expert who might have more experience can help you. Please do not respond back to the thread until another expert has picked up your question. Thank you again for using justanswer.com and another expert will be with you soon.
Your answer does not solve the question. The question is can and how can it be installed. Your answer so far is ambigious as you say it is possible provided that this or another harness can be installed. My question was can it be installed and how. Could you please answer these simple question in a profession manner.I look forward to your response.
Hi I am sorry you gave me a bad rating . Your question of can it be installed is simple. An electric brake controller can be installed on any vehicle that has brake lights and that just about covers them all. I just saw the model you wish to install. Let me see if I can come up with the instructions online and I will hopefully get you the help you need and see if I can get you to update my rating to a good one so I can receive credit for my answer. I will get back to you later today.
Hi I have searched and it appears that a plug and play harness is not available for a ranger. I also cannot find the generic wiring instructions for the brand of controller you are interested in. However I looked up a Hayes brand at Oreileys auto parts that has a simple installation and will do he same job as the one you are looking in to. I looked at the instructions for a Hayes Energize lll and Energize XPC and the install is simple. The red wire goes to the light green wire on the stop light switch on the brake pedal. You must install an inline 20 amp fuse on all 1999 model and newer fords. The black wire goes to the batterys positive terminal. The white wire goes to ground. And the blue wire is the signal to the trailers brakes. Different models may be slightly different so I need to know what model you have. It also may be different if you are using more than one axle on the trailer. If you can axcess the generic instructions for the Techoncha P3 I will be happy to help you with the install.As you can see the install is simple and the install on the P3 is probably similar, it is really not a big deal just get you a controller that has internet accessible instructions that I can access and I will help you install it. Thats about all I can do. Have a blessed day and let me know if you need me.
thanks sounds like i should purchace teconsha p3 grab the instrutions and confer with you does this suit.
Look forward to you reply
