  • Troubleshooting Intermittent Trailer Brakes Using Activator II Brake Controller on a 2008 GMC Yukon

This wire needs to be connected to the cold side of the stoplight switch, which will only show power when the brake pedal is applied. It could be that over time, the connection...

Otherwise the 12 volt power source wire (black) is shorting out to this circuit and would need to be fixed as well. I attached...

  • Prodigy P2 Brake Controller Seems to be Getting Weaker
  • It is possible that the P2 is getting dirty on the inside. To clean the contacts you can fully apply the manual override and let it snap back into place several times. You might also inspect the connection on the red wire to make sure it is secure. If the controller is tilted or turned to one side that can also affect its performance. It could have been bumped on accident and a slight change can have a larger affect.
