Re: Electric Brake Controller Install
Have to agree with kgb007, we are talking SAFETY.
I installed wiring from the engine bay thru to the boot for my "thumper battery". It took me yonks and my wiring in the engine bay looked pretty dismal (used all proper connections etc.).
Then I needed for a caravan, wiring for electric brakes and also wiring for (break away), so if the van comes loose from its hitch, the brakes are applied.
I really needed a switch in the cabin to turn of and on the relay for the Thumper, I asked them to do it.
The whole CRUX of the story here is that they did a professional job by asking questions as to what I was going to tow, either 2 wheel or 4 wheels, then asked what braking system I wanted as there is Cheap, Middle of the road, Good, Expensive.
I chose "Good" - it is a Prodigy 2 for four wheels.
I picked up the car and Wow, what a great job. They even cleaned up my "dismal" wiring.
Yep -expensive but professional. Cost me $632:50
I'm in South OZ, Adelaide area. If you want info of the Auto elec. place - please contact me.
PLEASE NOTE - I did ask another company - answer was "somewhere between $300 to $400" and did not ask questions about two wheel or four wheel or break away or what braking unit that is available. So would have had to take it back to have extras done. This braking unit could have been inadequate, therefore have to buy another. So that would have taken it to above the price I paid anyway.
Main North Nissan use this company for auto elec. work and directed me to them.
I am really happy.
