Well I watched the you tube video about that little 4 pin plug that's hidden up above the e brake foot peddle. But I've tried now for 2 days and cannot get the 2 connectors to snap together. I am in pain from twisting my 240lb frame into a pretzel trying to get my hand to do it. I'm beginning to think I'll have to pay to have a strong skinny person do it for me so I can hook up my brake controller.
Any ideas about how to get the 2 plugs to snap together. The male plug that was held in place by that little piece of blue tape is only able to move about 1 or 2 inches and I don't seem to have the finger strength to force them together.......:act064::act060::act024:

Well when I did it I remember it was a total PITA, but I believe if you can break or cut that blue tape and about 1/2 again as much more will "pull down" and make all that much easier to work with. Use the SEARCH function in the Blue bar and you will find some excellent write ups. I know I used one of those but don't remember which one (I'll post a link if I find it)
I don't remember watching a YouTube video when I did it, maybe it was there or maybe it wasn't yet made.

It took me about half an hour just to click them together. Cut the blue tape and pull it down as far as you can. If your lucky and have a skinny 12 year old have them do it.

It was a pain for me to get my 300 lb carcass under the dash to plug in the connectors for the brake controller and 7-pin harness/controller (not included with the RT models). It helps to take the lower part of the dash off.
