No but you can just plug one in.
Suggest looking at the Tekonsha Prodigy:
Some good prices for them on Ebay. I ordered one from RJays. Pleased with
the service and price.
Did you get a cable in the glove compartment? If not you have to buy the
Just two sheet metal screws to mount the controller and plug it in.
The fuse/relay box under the hood directly in front of the driver has two
terminals marked Aux 1 and 2. Aux 1 may have a dummy fuse in it. That one
supplies 12 volts to the 7 pin connector. Aux 2 supplies power for the
I'll second the above reccomendation. I'll add that if you DO get the
Prodigy, just spring the extra $15 and get the direct plug-in harness,
if you have the GM one in the glovebox or not. It makes for a REAL
easy plug and play (literally) install, no wire splicing needed.
Sometimes the color/description on the harnesses don't match right and
clarification is needed (seen it on Dodges before, wiring colors were
off a bit on the factory harness and the descriptions weren't clear).

Actually its a towing package.One would think that towing and trailer
would be the same.The new ford trucks (2004 and up) 3/4 and 1 tons
that have the factory towing package come equipped with the brake
controller built into the dash.
