That's the harness that I have. drilled a small hole in the firewall as per the instructions but it needed to be a little larger, hard to get the grommet installed that I had.
plugged it up and everything worked. No reprogram. Brake lights, tail lights , signal lights, flashers all work.

Just noticed your reply/question.

I have had reports of that cable sizing, I have had problems with cables like it (Parking brake, shifter cables on my Bicycle, all the same cable) if not used often.

I suspect that the install may make a difference in your case the brake arm bracket is directly in line with the sleeve end and it can push the cable in, if it's off a bit the cable may "Fold" instead of being pushed through the sleeve.

In my case.. When I get to the point of installing (Likely a year or two from now) I will be towing every 1-2 weeks so I expect no problems.. Just now I can not tow... Car is all set for towing (Save brakes) motor home has everything it needs to tow save for a motor, and that will take 1-2 years to replace if predictions hold.

Home is where I park it!
