Trailer electric brake controller wireing

I have a 96 explorer. I want to install an elec. brake controller under the dash. There are 4 wires comming from the brake controller. White, Black, Red and Blue. The red wire is my concern. On the red wire it says STOPLIGHT. What color wire do I splice into under the dash on my Explorer?

Place a test light on the brake switch wires.(there should be two)
The wire that is positive only when the brake is depressed is the wire you need to attach it to.

Whoa Nelley.

Contact the brake controller manufacturer and check with what goes where. They will know as they do the research.

Hoppy/Lite Mate is one of the better companies out there with trailer equipment like this.
