Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 - etrailer.com

http://www.etrailer.com/p-90195-3015P.html Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today on this 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 we will be installing part number 90195-3015P. This is a Tekonsha P3 brake control module and wiring harness. First we are going to install our mounting bracket. The customer chose to place it under the dash. I like to use an extra clamp as a third hand to hold it in place. Next, using the hardware provided, I will pre-drill two holes, here and here, to set our mounting screws. A second option instead of pre-drilling and using the screws that come with the mounting kit it to use self-tapping screws that will run straight in to the metal underneath the dash. Now I am going to install the brake control module. As you can see, there are two screws mounted on either side. You just want to snug those down tight enough so the module is secure. I like to set it at an angle. It is easy for the driver to read and utilize when necessary. 1:02

Tekonsha P-3 Proportional Brake Controller Review - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-demo-tekonsha-p3-brake-controller-90195.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to show you Part Number 90195 from Tekonsha. This is their P3 trailer brake controller. This is pretty much their top-of-the-line brake controller that is out on the market right now. What you need is, obviously, the brake controller itself, plus the mounting bracket, which is pretty unique. It actually grabs it from the top of the brake controller and snaps into place. And this little bracket here actually gets bolted on to the top here, and then this gets bolted onto your dash. And you can angle the brake controller in whatever direction you need. It also comes with a quick disconnect harness, which plugs into the back of the brake controller, and if you want to take it off when you are not using it, you just disconnect from the harness and tuck this away. And then you do not have it on your dash when you are not needing it. It comes with an informational DVD and it comes with a few connectors and screws to assemble and install on your dash, and another set of screws. And when you are not using your brake controller and you take it off, it comes with this really nice, handy carrying carrying case to put it in, so you can store it in your glove box or whatnot. And next we will go ahead and apply some power to it and show you how it works. We will show you the operation of this brake controller. It is actually very nice. This is a full-featured brake controller, and what is really unique about this brand is that it has an LED display here instead of a lot of numbers flashing like on the other brake controllers. It actually has a lot of diagnostics to tell you what is going on with your trailer. But the operation remains the same as any brake controller, especially this one. It has a manual override that activates the trailer brakes. And you just push it over and it shows you on the display in voltage how much you are sending out. And also this comes on when you hit your foot brake, just like any other brake controller. And again, it is inertia activated, so if you are sitting still and you apply the brakes you will get hardly any voltage out. But what happens is that when you do apply your brakes, there is a sensor on the inside that will know how hard you are hitting your brakes and will send current to the trailer brakes in proportion to how hard you are using the brakes in the towing vehicle. Also, this brake controller comes with three Boost settings, activated by this button right here. Basically you have Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3. And what all these Boost settings do is make the brake controller come on instantly. Boost Level One puts out 13 percent of the power instantaneously and then after a second it reverts to the inertia-activated brake controller. So basically what this does is it allows your trailer brakes to work first, and then your truck brakes start working afterward. And also the same thing applies to Boosts Two and Three. Two and Three use up to 25 percent of the available braking power. However, with Two and Three, each higher setting you go to on the brake controller actually reacts faster. This button here goes through the menus that are available on the brake controller. You hit that button, and you have got different options. You have got Display, the Type of Brakes you are using in this case here on this trailer you have total electric brakes. But on some trailers you have what is called Hydraulic Over Electric, which means basically you have a hydraulic pump mounted on the trailer and the brake controller will turn on that pump to activate the hydraulic brakes on the trailer. And then you have this Help feature, which tells you what all the functions mean in the brake controller, which is pretty nice. You can change the display, you change to different colors, and different contrasts. You can change intensity, depending on how good your eyes are. And what is nice about it is it has a built-in diagnostic feature. So, for instance, if the blue wire coming from the trailer gets interrupted, causing a short, or just gets disconnected for some reason, it will actually tell you. So, we have disconnected the brakes, and it shows you in bright red and tells you what is going on. And if the blue wire rubs against the frame or gets shorted out somehow, it actually tells you that, too. And also, the other warning is that the brake controller will display a power loss. So basically if you have a loss of power going to the brake controller for a short time then it will tell you that it is losing power. To adjust the gain on the brake controller, aside from the other ones that have a little thumb wheel, it has two buttons on the side that you use for scrolling through the menus.





Trailer Brake Controller Comparison Review - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-brake-controller-comparison-faq.aspx Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. Today we are going to talk about the two main kinds of brake controllers, the proportional and the time delay. The two we have here are the Journey HD and the Draw-Tite Activator II. These are what you call the time delay brake controllers. Basically what happens is that when you hit the brakes, they come on at a certain speed that you set on the brake controller. Like on this one here, we have a sync switch here that controls how fast it comes on and then this knob here controls how much power it takes to stop the trailer. Basically you hit your foot brake and it comes on at the rate you determine and at how much power youve set aside for it, and then it stays there until you completely let off the brake. However, there is not a time delay on these. These are inertia activated, which means there is basically a little pendulum on the inside for lack of a better term that just moves forward as soon as you hit your brakes. With inertia, you know, as soon as you hit your brakes, stuff goes flying forward. With a little movement in here it does the same thing. The more the movement goes up, the more power it sends out to the trailer brakes. So once your trailer brakes start activating and your truck brakes start activating, everything starts slowing down. The pendulum starts coming back down too, and also it lets off the current going out to the trailer at the same time. So that way you have a gradual stopping power going with the trailer brakes. It makes the trailer act as one with the truck, more so than with the time delay units. A couple of differences about these is basically in how you install these on your vehicle. Whats really nice about the time delay ones is you can mount them like that, or sideways, or upside down it does not matter because they are completely solid state no moving parts whatsoever. And this one, the same way you can mount it on top of the dash, sideways, you can mount it on the bottom basically anywhere you want, as long as you keep it in easy reach. Now with the proportional one its a different story. They have a limited amount of angle that you can install them at. Basically you have about a 70-degree angle up and maybe a 30-degree angle down. It varies with different brake controllers. I think with the Odyssey you can probably go up to 90 degrees and it will work just fine. However, you cant really do any tilting like this, just a little like this, and maybe a hair of an angle like this from left to right. And you can do that on both of these. But for the most part, the closer to level you can keep the proportional ones the better off you are. Basically, some people ask, Well I only use it two or three times a year, do I really need to spend all that money on a brake controller? If its only two or three times a year and you have got a small pop-up camper, chances are the time delay one is going to work just fine for you. And, in fact, this one has a quick disconnect so when you are not using it you can just disconnect it from you vehicle, uninstall it and just keep it in your glove box or toolbox or wherever you want to keep it. If you are going to do a lot of heavy-duty hauling or even light duty with a pop-up camper but you are going to be driving a lot of miles you are going to be more impressed with the performance of the the proportional ones. Again, its a little bit more of a headache to install in the mounting position, but you will get better performance all around, and smoother braking. And you wont get that kind of jerky action when the brakes and trailer engage and the slack gets taken out of the coupler and the receiver hitch, and itll be a little smoother on that. Again, if you are going to drive a lot of miles, I recommend the proportional. For two or three times a year or for the weekend warrior or short trips, the time delay ones are probably going to be your best bet. I think maybe a possible advantage of the time delay over the proportional ones is it is kind of nice to feel your brakes working on the trailer almost all the time. Basically, you can feel them working right off the bat and it gives you a little extra sense of security. Again, you get a little rougher ride, but you do get a sense of security when you do that. However, that being said, the better brake controllers, like the P3 and the Odyssey, they have whats called Boost features in them. And basically it makes the brakes come on five percent right off the bat. So it works kind of like a time delay at first, and then about a second later it reverts to its proportional mode and it everything works a lot smoother. That way, you can get the feeling of a time delay, where you can definitely feel the brakes working, but then you wont have that jerky action when you start slowing down.





Installation of a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/bc-2014_Chevrolet_Silverado+1500.htm Today on this 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crewcab, we're going to install the Prodigy P3 trailer brake controller, part number 90195 from Tekonsha. To help us with our install, we're going to use part number 3016. This is the Tekonsha plug in wiring adapter for electric brake controllers. We're going to start off with that part first. This will actually plug into a port underneath the dash on the left hand side. There's a box that has a lid on it, just behind the parking brake. Note: Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information.





Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2000 Chevy Silverado Part 1 - etrailer.com
http://www.etrailer.com/tv-brake-controller-install-chevy-pickup-part-1.asp x Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information. On this 2000 C/K Series Pickup we are going to install brake controller part number 39523 from Tekonsha. This is their Powertrac brake controller. This factory tow package also applies to Chevrolet and GMC trucks as far back as I believe the early 90s. I do not know down to 88 or not. It was new bought when this body style came out. We are going to begin our install work from the rear of the vehicle and work our way forward. The tow package on this body style is all stored right here behind the bumper and this channel underneath the bed of the pickup truck. All you have got to do is cut this down and pull it out. There is a harness that you pull out and it is designed to be spliced onto. For the towing package from a brake controller and a hot lead it is actually ran inside the frame and it does not come that far back. That is located on the frame on the driver side. 00:48 Normally this harness is pushed up against the frame here and you really can not see it. You will never know where to look. You will never find it. It is a lot easier to take down the spare tire but since this has already been pulled out for a previous install we will just leave it alone and you can see that the wires we need to use have already been exposed. Just move the hot lead going to the battery and this is the break lead and they both go up to the front of the vehicle. When we get to the front of the vehicle we will show you where they are terminated at. 01:15 The light green wire we are not going to use a ring terminal on because that actually goes in the center here so we do not need one. Okay to start our reverse lead and that goes into the center of the 7-pole. That is just for the reverse lights. I will show you the different wiring codes. What goes to what because on 7-poles it is not color for color hardly at all. We will start with the easy ones, the ones that do match up. We are going to run blue to blue. Blue will be your brake lead and that goes to blue on the brakes on your 7-pole. Next we will go to black and then convert it from orange to black that is your hot lead and so black on the 7-pole will always be for the hot lead. That is our constant 12 volts. We will do our ground wire and white on the 7-pole is ground also. We will do that one next. Now we will go to the ones that kind of change colors and functions. To me the easiest way to remember is to do the exact opposite of the color you are working with. Brown is running lights on the circuit for running lights on the trailer and on the truck however it is going to be green for the 7-pole function. Basically it is going to be green to brown and brown to green and yellow to red. Green lug will go to brown wire. Then we will go to our brown lug and that will be right turn for the 7-pole but it will be green on our truck and also it will be green typically on the utility trailer. Lastly we will do our left turn which will go to the red lug on our 7-pole. Just pull all of the wires back through. Then reinstall the screws to hold it in place. Double check to make sure the screws are in place. Then run some electric tape around it to seal up the rest. Now that we have got everything sealed up we will go ahead and just install it in our bracket. Just use the four screws to hold it in place. We will run our excess wire back up behind here and zip tie it and keep it secured.

Cleaning Catalytic Converters With Soap and Water -EricTheCarGuy
This is my second attempt to clean a catalytic converter, this time with soap and water. I've heard this method can work so I thought I would give it a try. One that that's important with these techniques is to do the procedure properly. On both my first attempt with this one and my last attempt with lacquer thinner, I didn't do the procedure properly and as a result I was not successful. I speak to those points in the video. So, if you have a catalytic converter code and it's not all broken up inside, you might consider trying this technique. You really don't have anything to loose if you do. Related Videos.
