To the right of the steering wheel, above the power outlet, do you have the trailer brake controller, or the little storage bin?

Storage bin

Actually I don't have either one this is a 2016 navigator

If you want to do a factory install you can purchase the brake controller and install it there and then the instrument cluster needs to be programmed and you can use the factory setup. Yes I understand what it is. HEre is a diagram of the brake scontroller being installed.

Interesting, the lincoln dealer told me to bring in a after market controller and they would install for $325
Do you have a Ford part number?

They could install an aftermarket one. But I would prefer the factory look myself. I do have the installation instructions from the kit. The part number may be on there. The Expedition is the same as the Navigator. CLICK HERE for instructions.

I can't find a dealer that says thaye can get a factory trailer brake controler. I called Lincoln and they are looking into it.

Ok. I dont think it should be that difficult to get. I have never personally got on for a Navigator but F series trucks all the time.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
