Tow vehicle wiring question

So just purchased a new 2019 toyota highlander. Does not have a hitch so i have to get that done as well as all the wiring , 7 pin receptacle with brake controller. I have a new brake controller from my old vehicle i took out. Any ideas how much it would cost roughly for a shop to put the brake controller in and do all wiring to a 7 pin connector. Thx

If the Hilander is anything like my MDX it is all plug and play. Buy the Toyota factory hitch and wiring. Same for the brake controller. Plug everything in and your ready to go. Less than half a days worth of labor.

Mr_D I think he is going to pull a trailer. But I'm not sure.



Hmmm I could have sworn there was a reply from Mr_D there a minute ago.

That happens. They delete the post and leave you out there. If you reply to their post or wait an hour, they can't delete it.

You should be able to buy a wiring harnes adapter for the brake controller for around $15 and just mount the controller and plug it in. If youre having a shop install your hitch, wiring the 7 pin should be part of the deal. Try Napa for the harness adapter. It would look something like this, but different....for Toyota:
