Default OEM brake controller 2010 1500 small connector

I am having a hard time locating a wire diagram for the smaller of the two harness connectors for an OEM Brake Controller. I can only locate one plug.. There a lot of schematic son the web, but they do not clearly tell me which plug it is for.

The controller P/N is: 56029431AF
The beige trim is: 1EB13DK2AA

Installation took 15 minutes after discounting the fact that I was taking pictures.

This is where the factory controller is mounted.

This is the new bezel.

Face of new controller.

Bottom of new controller.

Mount the controller into the bezel. There are 2 screws you'll need to dig up and they're both different sizes. Careful not to attempt to use a screw that's too big or you'll split the plastic casing.

Remove these two Philips screws and don't lose them.

After the screws are out, carefully pull the panel straight back. The ODBC connector and hood release can be left attached.

Once the center panel has been removed, the first of two mounting screws for the cubby are exposed. It a Torx screw.

On the left side of the dash panel is a small access door. It pulls out from the leading edge. Be careful not to just jam a screwdriver in there and pry it open or you'll mark up the sharp edge of the dashpad. I inserted a small screwdriver just enough to get my fingernail in and pull it out. Take it easy here because you can see any marks you make. Plastic trim tools would work well here also.

Now that the access door is open the second retaining screw for the bezel is exposed. Remove both screws now and pull the cubby straight out of the dash.

Up under the left side of the dash (fairly close to where you're working) you should find two grey connectors that are taped to the harness. Untape them and route them to the opening you'll be inserting the new bezel and controller into.

Carefully insert the controller and bezel assembly into the opening and press it firmly into place so the secondary clips on the bezel seat properly into the dash. Plug in the connectors you untied above (they are two different sizes so you won't mix them up) and reinstall the two Torx retaining screws. Turn the ignition on to ensure that all the LEDs illuminate then go off. If it functions correctly then close the left access panel, replace the lower trim and secure it with the original screws.

This is the finished product with protective film removed from controller face.

Very nice!!
