  • What is the Difference Between the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 and the P3 Brake Controllers
  • Actually, the P3 now has the upgraded axis accelerometer like the P2. The Tekonsha P3 Trailer Brake Controller # 90195, will work with both electric over hydraulic brakes on the trailer as well as electric brakes. It has a toggle switch that allows the user to switch between the two systems. I have included a link to the installation details for the P3 below. The P2, # 90885, will also work with both electric brakes and electric over hydraulic brake systems but it does not have a toggle...

  • Comparison Between the Tekonsha P2 # 90885 and Primus IQ # TK90160 Electronic Brake Controllers
  • The Prodigy P2 brake controller # 90885 and the Primus IQ # TK90160 share some basic features, but there are many differences. The most obvious ones are the displays and appearances of the units, which are connected to the usability of the brake controllers while towing. The P2 has a brighter, light-colored LED display that is easier to read than the red LED display on the Primus, and the P2 also features a rotary lever for the manual braking feature, while the Primus uses an older style...

  • What is the Difference Between Prodigy P2 and P3 Brake Controllers
  • The biggest differences between the Prodigy P2 brake controller, # 90885, and the P3 brake controller, # 90195, are the display, buttons and look of the controllers. I like the buttons and display on the P3 controller myself because the display uses actual words for setup and troubleshooting rather than the display codes that the P2 uses. This makes it easier for me to know that I am adjusting the correct function or see the trouble shooting codes without referring back to the installation...

  • Comparing P2 and P3 Brake Controller for 2004 Dodge Ram 2500
  • If you have never used a brake controller before, the P2 # 90885 will be easier to learn on and use than the P3, # 90195. The P3 has several features the P2 doesn't though including the ability to change the LED screen color, change the language, and the biggest difference is the diagnostics. Instead of flashing a code you would have to look at the P3 has clear messages telling you what the problem is. So there is a trade-off there. Other than that the controllers function in the same...

  • Comparing the Tekonsha Prodigy and P2 Trailer Brake Controllers
  • Both the Prodigy, # 90185, and the P2, # 90885, have an accelerometer in them that operate the same way. The P2 has some upgrades that allow it to be installed a full 360 degrees in the direction of travel. It can also be used with electric and electric over hydraulic braking systems. If you are in need of one of these features, then upgrading would be the way to go. If your Prodigy is working well, I would stick with it. I have included a link to the installation details for the P2 for you.

  • Parts Needed to Install a Prodigy or P2 Trailer Brake Controller on a 2012 Toyota 4Runner
  • If your 2012 Toyota 4Runner came with the factory tow package, you will just need the wiring harness # 3040-P. Plug it into the back of the brake controller and plug the other end into the connector on the vehicle that is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal. Make sure to ground the additional white wiring on this harness so the brake controller will work. The Prodigy and P2 are similar controllers. The...

  • Choosing Between Tekonsha Prodigy P2 and P3 for Farm Trailer with Electric Brakes
  • Both the Prodigy P2 and the P3 are compatible with both electric and electric over hydraulic braking systems. The primary difference between the P2 and the P3 is that the P3 has what I would call a more user-friendly display that will provide diagnostic information about your braking system at a glance. The P2 also provides diagnostic information, but instead of directly spelling out the nature of the problem, the display will provide an error code that you will need to look up in the...

  • What Differences Will Arise When Switching from a Prodigy 90185 to a P2 Brake Controller 90885
  • The P2 brake controller # 90885 would offer a few upgrades in comparison with your current Prodigy brake controller, part # 90185. The most noticeable in your day to day use would probably be that the P2 has a 360 degree mounting range, as compared to the 70 degree range on the Prodigy. Looking to your future towing needs, the P2 is also compatible with electric over hydraulic brake systems, while the Prodigy only works with trailers with electric brakes. Both units would use the...

  • Comparing the Tekonsha P2 and P3 Brake Controllers
  • I can help put your mind at ease about the Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller # 90195. The P2 # 90885 and P3 # 90195 are both made by Tekonsha, and are both great proportional brake controllers. The big difference between the two is that the P3 can also can help to troubleshoot problems in the system, because it also has a full display LCD screen instead of codes that need deciphering. The P3 is Tekonsha's top of the line brake controller and is great for electric over hydraulic systems. As...

  • Comparing Tekonsha P2 And Primus Brake Controllers
  • The most popular brake controller we offer is the P2, part # 90885. This is our most popular because it is easy to install and operate. It does cost a little more than some of the other brake controllers but the customer reviews and comments are very positive for this controller. To make this an easy to install item you need part # 3015-P. This adapter plugs into the back of the brake controller and the other end plugs into the junction box beneath your truck dashboard to the left of...

  • Comparing Prodigy P2 and P3 Brake Controller for 2012 Ford F250
  • Either the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 # 90885 or the P3 # 90195 are excellent proportional brake controllers. Functionally speaking, the two controllers are pretty similar. Both are compatible with electric or electric over hydraulic braking systems. Both have multiple boost levels that can provide higher initial voltage output for heavier trailers. Both can be mounted at any angle, as long as they are installed parallel to the direction of travel and are level on a side to side plane (see diagram). The...

  • P2 vs. P3 Brake Controller for a 2014 Dodge Durango
  • Both the P2 part # 90885 and the P3 part # 90195 brake controllers are top of the line controllers that would work great for your 2014 Dodge Durango with tow package. All you would need for installation is the adapter part # 3045-P. Functionally they both would work exactly the same. The advantage to the P2 is the simpler install and setup. The P3 requires a little more user interaction but it also has more bells and whistles like the ability to save trailer setting presets if you have...

  • Recommended Brake Controller When Towing Enclosed Trailer With Electric Brakes
  • The Primus, part # TK90160 and Prodigy P2, part # 90885 are both nice brake controllers, but there are some differences. The P2, part # 90885, uses a lever on the underside for a manual override where the Primus uses a slide that some people have said they have problems with the slide sticking depending on how they grip and operate the slide. The P2 has buttons on the face for adjusting settings and navigating through the menus. The Primus IQ uses a dial and one button to adjust settings. The...

  • There are 3 major differences between the Prodigy, part # 90185, and the Prodigy P2, part # 90885, brake controllers. The LED display is blue on the P2, and red on the Prodigy.

  • Comparing and Contrasting the P3 and Prodigy Brake Controllers
  • Both of these brake controllers are made by Tekonsha and are high rated and popular models. The main difference between the two is that the P3 can be used with both electric brakes and electric over hydraulic brakes and can toggle between the two systems as needed. It also has an LCD display and is supposed to be able to troubleshoot problems in the system. Basically, if you want more features, pick the P3.

  • Do Exhaust Brakes On 2005 Dodge Cummins Cause Trailer Brakes To Overheat When Using Brake Controller
  • On your 2005 Dodge Cummins Diesel with exhaust brakes, using the Tekonsha P-3 Trailer Brake Controller, # 90195, will not cause your trailer brakes to overheat on a long downhill. It will only apply power to the trailer brakes in proportion to the vehicles deceleration. When using the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller, # 90885, it will apply power to the trailer brakes only when the vehicles brakes are applied. So the trailer brakes will not be applied until you touch the vehicles...

  • What are the Mounting Differences Between the Tekonsha P2 and P3 Trailer Brake Controllers
  • The difference between the single axis P3, # 90195, and the tri-axis P2, # 90885, is how they can be mounted. The P3 can be mounted between -90 degrees straight down or 90 degrees straight up (not tilted to the side and in the direction of travel). The P2 can be mounted a full 360 degrees in the direction of travel and not tilted to the side. As long as either controller is properly mounted according to the manufacturer instructions, they will perform well. The only difference you would...

I have attached a link to instructions for you to review.

The P-3 brake controller is also compatible with both standard...

  • Comparison of the Tekonsha P3 and P2 Brake Controllers for Use in a 2010 Dodge Ram 2500
  • The major differences between the P2 brake controller, item # 90885 and the P3 brake controller, item # 90195, are that there is a 3 axis accelerometer in the P2 vs 1 axis in the P3. This means that the P2 has a greater range of mounting positions than the P3, which probably is not an issue in the 2010 Dodge truck. The P3 has more display capabilities and better fault detection. Basically, the P2 is a bit easier to use for those who are towing the same trailer, with about the same load,...

  • Is the P3 Brake Controller Better than the Voyager for a 1997 Ford F-250HD
  • The P3 brake controller # 90195 is several rungs up the ladder from the Voyager so it is very much worth it! The easy to read display is just one benefit. The P3 also has easy to read diagnostics, numerous setting options, and it is compatible with both electric brakes and electric over hydraulic brakes. And another benefit is that it can be mounted a full 360 degrees in the direction of travel (just not tilted or turned to one side). The P3 and Voyager do use the same wiring harness,...

Instead of an error code like what's displayed on the P2, the P3 will actually spell out in plain English what the problem is. The P3 also offers 5 preset storable settings that allow you to dial in your preferred settings for up to 5 different trailers. If you'll only be towing one or two trailers, this feature...

  • Why Time-Delayed Brake Controllers Are Not Recommended For Ram Trucks But Are For Chevrolet Trucks
  • The newer Ram trucks computer systems have issues with a time-delayed brake controller and that is why you will not see it offered in our fit guide as an option for the Ram but is offered as an option for Chevrolet trucks. I recommend a proportional brake controller like the Prodigy P3, part # 90195. A proportional controller applies the brakes with the same intensity that the towing vehicle uses when the brake pedal is pressed. You can adjust the braking power and how aggressive you...

  • Proportional Trailer Brake Controller Installation in 2001 Ford F-250 Super Duty
  • Proportional type trailer brake controllers deliver braking that is more consistent with the slowing of the tow vehicle, which is generally preferred to the "one-size-fits-all" action of a time-delay type unit that applies the brakes with the same intensity no matter how quickly you're stopping. But since they rely on an accelerometer to sense the tow vehicle's deceleration, proportional controllers need to be set up within each one's operating angle range. The linked article may be of...

  • Is the P3 Brake Controller Better than the P2
  • The P3 # 90195 is an excellent brake controller.

I have included a link to a video review of the P3 for you.
