Tow package but no EBC

Bought a 2010 F150 Lariat on Saturday...

I have question, I have the tow package on the lariat but see no Electric Brake Controller.

How does this work now?

I had to pay an extra $220 or so for the brake controller on my Lariat which came with a tow package. Makes you wonder what the tow package really includes, because i paid extra for the trailer tow mirrors as well.

If you had got the Max Tow package, the Brake controller is included. Otherwise it's an option.

You can order the controler off a website and install it. There are many write ups on these on other forums. The harness will be there but you will need a dealer to activate it to come up on your dash

Make sure to get a 2010 Brake controller. they differ from the 2009

and yes. it's a plug and play.
but to get it to work and activate the sway controller. you need the dealer to turn it on.


I aswell have the tow package.
It includes the class V hitch, 4pin and 7pin wiring. and i think something else. besides being prewired for the brake controller.
