Adding trailer brake controller questions??

Hello all,
I have a 2004 XE KC 4X2
I want to add a trailer brake controller to my truck.
I added the Nissan hitch and installed both relays under the hood. The instructions say to locate the sub harness under the drivers side of the dash. I've looked everywhere it says to kook but can't find it anywhere.
My dealer told that all the Titans were pre-wired for the brake controller harness but I sure don't see one on my truck.

Does anyone know if my dealer is crazy??

Thanks.

I believe JetTec had some pics showing it, I will see if I can find them if he don't get back to you first.

Hmm I'm not sure about the XE I have the XE and I don't think mine came with it. I have not added a hitch yet but plan to. I am interested in this as well. If we don't have it we are going to have to pay extra to get it. Any XE owners that have added a hitch let us know if you had the relay already. Maybe its something that comes with another package.

I don't think the XE's come pre-wired. Let me see what I can find.

The connector is taped to a wire harness to the left of the steering column. The easy way to get to it is to remove the plastic trim below the steering column. There are two phillip head screws at the bottom. Remove those and the panel will then snap off. You can then get to the connector. You probably should buy the brake controller "pigtail" from Nissan; that way it will plug into the connector and connect to your controller. The pigtail comes with instructions and the wires are identified for easy connection to your controller.

This shows the harness under the dash. The controller connector (M76) is in the red box.

I've read where all Titans came pre-wired then I've also read where the XE's don't. If you can't find the harness from my pic, or the pic SCR38 put out then we'll have to get a current XE owner to tell us that's been through this. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Wish I could help.

Drive by the dealer and ask them for a favor. One look and a Nissan Tech should be able to show you.

At this point I'm banking on my XE having the hookup (Maybe Too Much Optimism). I will most likely add a brake controller soon.

Good Luck To Ya'!!!!

Just got it confirmed through MikeZ that the XE's do NOT come pre-wired for trailer brakes. Sorry it took so long.
