  1. P3 Brake Controller and LED Lights

    Off-Roading & Towing
    I have a 2006 V10 TDI, with an installed hitch. I have located the brake controller wiring harness although tucked way up there and hard to see. I am looking for an adapter to go from the P3 into the factory harness since I can't really see the plug that well I'm not really sure what it looks...

  4. Towing recognition control module problem

    Off-Roading & Towing
    I have a 2012 TDI TReg with the factory installed towing package. I purchased a Tekonsha RF brake controller for my small 16 foot RV with the understanding that I may have to "pair" or sync that RF unit using another vehicle. Working directly with Teknosha tech support we determined that the...

    I saw several posts about using the manual brake slider control, so I thought it might be useful if I shared my experience. First I feel I need to say, in most emergencies you won't have time to react to grab the manual brake control, and if you do two things will most likely result. 1. It...

  7. Tekonsha Prodigy IQ & T-One Lighting Connector

    Off-Roading & Towing
    I can't help myself, I have to do things my own way. So, in this case, I installed the Curt trailer hitch on my '04 Touareg (instead of the crazy-expensive VW one). And then I installed the Tekonsha Prodigy IQ myself, tapping into the Treg's brake switch in the driver's footwell and availing...

    Off-Roading & Towing
    I got the connector housing, but did not order the wire/terminal assembly. Does anyone have the specs/picture of the type of spade connectors at the ends of the wire/terminal assembly to plug into the housing? Also, I've seen in the forum that there are 2 sizes of connectors on the "official"...
