Electric brake question

Has anyone here ever put a electric brake in a 2014 gmc Sierra1500? Have been told that all you have to do is plug it in that the port is there. Most ebrakes have the same plug that fits it. Just wanted to know if anyone else has put one in. Thanks

I've done it on others, it is not hard. Here is a link to a video for your vehicle.

Sadly GM decided to save the $.12 it would cost to put the plug on the wires. They are bundled up under the dash above the parking brake. Also you may or may not need to attach the wire at the fuse panel out under the hood. Its also taped up between fender and fuse bank. Its fairly easy. Took me about 20mins from start to finish to install my Tekonsha.

Also be aware that the 12V Aux circuit to the Bargman connector is most likely not active, The wire is there, but they did not a fuse in the fuse block for that circuit.

Instead of using a burnout fuse go to an autoparts store and get a auto reset breaker, they are about $8.00 and are so much nicer then replacing fuses if anything should 'pop' the breaker.
