Factory Brake Controller

Hello all,

I have a 2010 F150 XLT with the tow package but it didn't come with the factory brake controller. There are multiple forums showing that you can buy the part for around $200US and install yourself, but you need the dealer to turn on the option on the trucks computer.
I live in Edmonton and went to see the dealer and at first they told me it is not possible. He then found the part and said it was $591.00 and new nothing about the installation or activation. Is there anyone in the Edmonton area that has added the factory controller to their truck? If so, what dealer was it? Was your dealer aware of the procedure? I am less than impressed with this dealer (Denny Andrews Ford).

I don't have a 2010. and i'm not in your area..
My old man has a 2009 and ordered the part, installed it. and had the dealer activate it via the computer.
Works flawless!

So, yes it can be done. Other numerous forums/people are not lying about this.. The part is not $591.. wrong part.. or way over charging you.

Did a bit of searching.. The factory trailer brake controller part numbers are

2010 P/N is AL3Z19H332AA

and for reference.
2009 P/N is 9L3Z2C006A

If your in from order over the net.

that is a way overpriced,ford retail pricing is 299.95,and about 1/2 hour to program.
