    Default Installing brake controller

    How do you install a brake controller on a 96' Tahoe.

    It's pretty simple. There should be a positive, negative, brake switch, and trailer brake wire coming out of your controller. The positive needs to go to an always-on fused circuit, negative to a good ground, brake switch trigger to the cold/switched side of the brake switch, and the trailer brake wire going to the trailer brake pin on the 7-way connector. Hardest part is getting the brake switch trigger.

    Look for the "NAT" in the left side kick panel fuse block. See if this helps...
