Default Harness "B" part number?

I only have the one 4 pin plug, hardness "A". Does anyone have a part number for the harness "B" pigtail? I know I can splice the the wires and put connectors on them to make it work but would much rather install the actual harness to make it look good.

Thanks

Default Got it installed!

So I got the controller and the bezel in yesterday and and got it installed in about an hour. I only had the one 4 pin grey connector and everything is working perfectly! Now to just find a dealer that will flash my system for me for free.

Thanks for all the good info from everyone on this post.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but if you only have the 4 pin connector on a 2010 there is no reason to get the computer flashed.

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.
Thanks

Picked up the factory trailer brake controller from the Dealer I bought my truck from. Supposedly there was a high 200 unit backorder nationally but it took only a week to get it in.

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!!

Paul

Default Need dark bezel!

I am working on fitting a prodigy brake unit and want to use the factory control location.
I'd like to have a spare bezel insert in case I mess up the original!
Can anyone help? I've tried to find cheap online but can't locate.
Anyone have a spare they'd send me for some big thanks?

Just wanted to give a big round of thanks to Ken99 for the .PDF instructions. I just finished installing this in my '09 1500, and had no trouble locating all the correct wires. Very simple installation, for something that's not supported from the factory. It looks so much better than the big honkin' Prodigy hanging out from the dash. I also like the fact that you can use essentially a clothespin to pin the trailer brakes on - makes loading/unloading equipment easier.

I haven't pulled a trailer with it yet, but I did hook it up, and got a value (I'm guessing a percentage?) displayed when I stepped on the brake - could also hear the electric brakes on the trailer engaging, so all's good there.

Curious that it won't display anything unless the headlights are on. Since it's only getting a +12V ignition feed, it must be reading the light status from the CAN bus. Oh well - lights on whenever pulling a trailer. I can live with that.

just bought a 2012 1500 dodge, and want to verify what I need to buy. It sounds like I need this?
56029431AH MODULE TRAILER TOW
1EB13XDVAA BEZEL TRAILER BRAKE
My dash is grey.

Mopar site says I need this: 82212548 which is $205 ??

Is mopar-wholesale.com the preferred retailer?
Oh, and I don't have the second 4pin connector so I'll be stuck splicing...kind of pissed at RAM about that. I downloaded the pdf, hopefully I can figure that out. Instructions seem straightforward though, thanks for all the info on this site.
