2007 Jeep Wrangler Brake Controller Installation
(Other Years May Be the Same or Similar)
"Standard" Wire colors to the controller (Tekonsha and others):
We found the brake light switch tap on the long connector attached to the steering column. It was the White wire with tan tracer. The picture shows looking up from the floorboard.
Get a test light and test all the pins on this plug, looking for the one that lights up when you press the brake pedal. The brake light switch is hard to reach, but with a probe tester, look for a wire under the dash that lights with the brake lights. Once we located that wire, I unplugged the connector to gain better access. Tap into the wire for the brake light feed (red wire on most controllers)
For power, we ran a wire through the firewall, and tapped onto battery under the hood.
We grounded the controller under the dash to a ground screw. Easy.
The blue (brake wire to plug) was simply passed through a hole in the firewall and ran along the frame to the back plug on the truck. (making sure to use lots of tie wraps to keep the wire away from hot and moving parts)
