Factory trailer brake co troller harness plug

Hello everyone. I had a quick question about the factory trailer brake controller. It seems the idiot who owned this truck before my cut the plug. The wires are exposed amd I have included a picture. I just wanted to verify with you guys that this is indeed the correct wiring. Youll notice four clipped wires with the ends covered in electric tape. Thank you in advance.

I will have to crawl under mine to verify but that does look like the wiring, but it looks like the wiring of the adapter harness to controller. Have you followed those wires back a little to see if there is a connector? It is more behind the heater controls and honestly, I think it is easier to get to by taking that lower panel off that the ashtray and cupholder are in. You do have to at least partially remove the upper panel to gain access to a couple screws.

I have a bit and cant find anything. I need to strip everything down again I guess. It appears to come from the same area that they leave the customer option wires. Looks like its just taped to those. I thought the grey plug was just behind the center? So you are saying it appears to be a harness from the factory plug to a controller that they cut? Meaning i can unplug it and plug my new tekonsha specific harness directly into it? Thank you for the help.

reach out to a customer service rep at etrailer.com they usually have wire instructions for their various products. Super nice folks. They may even make you a deal on a nice brake controller. Mine is 19 yrs old and started acting funny last year so I have been putting it off. I have been ordering towing parts (hitches, wire harnesses, adapter, and mic.) from them for years with absolutely zero issues (knock on wood of course lol).

Yea I watched their videos on my truck. Thats why I am confused. There should be a gray plug right there where those wires are clipped from the factory.

Sorry to just be getting back to you. I was a little mistaken when looking at your picture.

Here are a few pics from my truck (2000 f250). Hope they help but they may not.

This is what I have going on. The first pic is the aftermarket trailer brake wiring harness and the second pic is where it plugs into the truck.

After a little more looking, I did find the same wires you have pictured in my truck as well and they too are just cut like from factory. Maybe they are something to do with upfitter switches such as high idle or PTO.

This is what I have. I dug around a lot and cant find the damned plug. Is it possible that it wasnt installed from the factory?
