Video Transcript for Tekonsha Brake Controller 30235-P Review

Today we're going to review part number 30235-P. This is the Tekonsha Brake Controller Converter with the 7-Way Adapter. Now this is a custom fit part number. This is designed to fit the Dodge Ram 1500, 2500, and 3500 vehicles starting in 2013. What I would recommend on a custom fit part is to go to our website, use our fit guide and put in your year and model of vehicle and it will show you if this part will work for you application. This part includes everything shown here on the table. Basically what happens is, the state of California requires that your trailer brake lights should illuminate when the manual override on your electric brake controller is activated.

Therefore, to comply with state regulations, California residents must install this adapter when setting up a trailer brake controller. This adapter will ensure that your trailer's brake lights illuminate when you activate that manual override on your brake controller. This is designed to work with the Tekonsha Custom Plug In Brake Controller Adapter. We do sell separately, it's part number 3023P and it is listed on this product page as a related product. This adapter here will install between the factory socket and your 7-way trailer connector. It's a fast, easy plug in connection. There's no splicing of wires required.

Basically what you do is this adapter will plug inline with your 7-way trailer connector which is at the rear of your vehicle. Usually behind your bumper. What you'll do is simply separate your 7-way connector from your factory harness and then install this adapter between the connector and the factory socket. Then mount this adapter box in an out of the way location. Basically just take this double faced tape that's included, put it on there and attach that out of the way. Then what you'll notice, it has this yellow wire coming out of the converter box and this needs to run to your battery at the front of your vehicle.

Now they do give you a nice set of instructions, which are detailed. They have some good pictures to show you how to connect all this. Briefly just to show you, what you want to do after this has all been plugged in and this is attached down, take this power wire from the converter, take your extra length of wire, about 20 feet of it right here, take one end of it, use the included butt connector, put it on to the power wire and attach it to this length of wire and then run this wire up to the front and then once you have this other end up to the front . You don't want to attach it to the battery yet. What you want to do is put a butt connector on and attach it to this inline fuse holder.

Just like that. Then on the other side, the other wire coming out of the inline fuse holder, you're going to put the ring connector on and then this will attach to the positive side of your battery post. Then before you use it, what you want to do, open up your inline fuse holder, take the included 15-amp fuse, put it into your fuse holder, push it in just like that and then put the cap cover to cover it. Then you'd be all ready to go. They do include some cable ties that will take up any extra length of wire that might be running to the front or in the back here. That should do it for the review on part number 30235-P. The Tekonsha Brake Controller Converter with the 7-Way Adapter. .

  • Installing the Prodigy P3 on a 2019 Ram 1500 Classic
  • Yes, you can use the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter # 3024-P to simply plug-in the Prodigy P3 # 90195 for installing it on your 2019 Ram 1500 Classic. The only time this will be different is if you live in California. If that is the case then you need to use the adapter # 30235-P as well. Please note that since you have the Classic version of the 2019 Ram 1500 your pickup is the same as the 2018 Ram 1500 so it doesn't make sense as to why you wouldn't be able to install an aftermarket...

  • We do have a plug-in adapter for your 2018 Toyota 4Runner. It is listed as part # 3041-P on our site. This will install in the 5-pin connector that is found taped up near the emergency brake pedal under your driver side dash.

  • Prodigy Trailer Brake Controller Installation in 2017 Ram 1500
  • For your 2017 Ram 1500 pickup you can install a trailer brake controller quite easily. The truck has a connection port under the dash that allows simple plug-in installation of a controller like the well-regarded Prodigy P2 # 90885 by using nothing more than the plug-in wiring adapter # 3024-P (unless you drive in CA, in which case you will instead use part # 30235-P). I linked a video for you to show the easy installation in a Ram 1500.

  • Recommended Brake Controller and 4-Way/7-Way Connector for 2018 Toyota 4Runner w/Tow Package
  • The brake controller that I recommend for your 2018 Toyota 4Runner with the Tow Package is the Redarc Tow-Pro Elite # 331-EBRH-ACCV2 because of how easy it is to use, the versatility in mounting locations, and the wide variety of towing applications it can accommodate. To connect this to your 4Runner you just need the adapter # 3040-S. If you live in California you also need the Adapter # 30235-P. The control box for the Tow-Pro Elite is able to sense the motion of the vehicle in any...

  • Wiring Adapter to Install Tekonsha Prodigy P3 in 2017 Ram 5500 with Factory Controller
  • You can install the Prodigy P3 trailer brake controller # 90195 in your 2017 Ram 5500 that has a factory controller but you will use wiring adapter # 3024-P, not part # 3021-P. I confirmed this harness fit with Tekonsha. If you live in CA you will also need part # 30235-P to comply with state laws. Once you disconnect the factory unit a code will appear on your dash. This error code does not affect operation of the Prodigy but if you want to clear it you will need to visit a dealership...

  • To install the excellent Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller # 90195 on your 2014 Ram 1500, you will need the Plug-In Adapter # 3023-P. One end of the adapter will connect to the brake controller itself, while the other end will plug right into the factory port beneath the dash of your Ram. For the Prodigy P3 on your Ram 1500, you will also need to install the Brake Controller Converter # 30235-P at the 7-Way. This is needed so that the brake lights on the truck activate when...

  • Brake Controller Won't Light Brake Lights When Using Manual Override Slider On 2016 Ram 1500
  • The wire colors under the dash are not designed to match on any vehicle, they match function but not color and the Curt Brake Controller Adapter # C51458 is the correct harness for your 2016 RAM. I reached out to my friend at Curt and he confirmed that when you use the manual override slide on your Curt Venturer Trailer Brake Controller, # C51110, it is designed not to send power to your vehicle brake lights. It sends signal to your trailer brakes, but not to the lights. To adapt your...

  • Troubleshooting Factory Brake Controller in 2016 Ram 3500 That Will Not Operate EOH Trailer Brakes
  • In order to work with an electric-over-hydraulic (EOH) trailer brake actuator a brake controller must have a setting option specifically for that application. All brake controllers will work with electric drum brakes, but the electrical load from an EOH set-up is different than what the controller will see from electric brakes, and some controllers will not properly recognize or work with EOH systems. Some OEM controllers can work with certain EOH actuators only if a wiring adapter is used....

  • The computer on your 2017 Ram 2500 will NOT have to be flashed or reprogrammed in order to install the Prodigy P2 # 90885 trailer brake controller. All you will need to install this brake controller is the Plug-In Wiring Adapter # 3024-P. If you live in California you also need to add Brake Controller Converter with 7-Way Adapter # 30235-P due to that state's regulations.

  • Best Trailer Brake Controller for a 2014 Ram 1500
  • You very much can use the P3 brake controller # 90195 on your 2014 Ram 1500. A dealer is always going to say you have to use OEM parts. I once had a Hyundai dealer tell me which spark plugs I had to use. Turns out I didn't have to use those spark plugs after all. What you will need to install the brake controller is the proper wiring harness, # 3023-P. I have included a link to a video showing how a brake controller installs using this harness. And if you live in California you will...

  • Troubleshooting Brake Controller On 2013 Dodge Ram Pickup
  • It sounds like there may be a loose wire somewhere in the brake controller wiring. If the problem is intermittent, then that is a sign that something may be loose. I have attached a link to a helpful article that explains how to troubleshoot brake controller installations. When checking the wiring, you may want to use a circuit tester like part # 40376. In 2013, Dodge changed the wiring on Ram trucks. They now use multiplex wiring, and although they are physically the same, the wire...

  • Brake Controller Installation in 2013 Ram 1500
  • The stoplight switch circuit for the 2013 Ram is carried on a multiplex circuit, were more than one circuit is carried on a common wire, which makes isolating the stoplamp signal very difficult. The best way to install a brake controller on your 2013 Ram 1500 would be to use a brake controller wiring harness, instead of attempting to hardwire in the controller. I'd recommend going with the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885 along with the # 3023-P brake controller wiring adapter. The...

  • Tekonsha Brake Controller Wiring Harness for a 2014 Ram 1500
  • Your Dad's 1500 must be a 2012 and the harness must be # 3021-P. Dodge changed the electrical system on the Ram trucks starting in the 2013 model year to what they call the Powernet. It is a multiplex type of system and all that means for you is that you need a different wiring harness. Wiring harness # 3023-P is correct for your 2014 Ram. I have linked a video showing how it installs. If you live in or tow through California you will also need # 30235-P. It will adapt your 7-way...

  • Brake Controller Wiring Harness for a Reese Brake Controller on a 2014 Ram 1500
  • The issue is that Dodge started using the Powernet electrical system starting in the 2013 model year. This is a multiplex wiring systems so it is more complicated than pretty much everything else that came before it. A regular harness will not work so they developed a special harness just for this system and it is the only one that you can use. However, you do not need to run the additional wiring back to a third brake light wire. Everything still plugs in under the dash. The harness...

  • The Tekonsha Primus IQ Trailer Brake Controller, # TK90160, does use wiring harness # 3023-P on a 2014 Ram 1500. So you have selected the correct wiring harness! If you also happen to live in California then you will also need brake controller converter # 30235-P. This will allow the truck brake lights to come on when you apply the manual override on the controller and is required by law in California.

  • Installing Aftermarket Brake Controller on 2013 Ram 3500 with Factory Brake Controller
  • The adapter # HBA-CAM will not work with the HBA-12 unless the serial number is 705700 or greater. So you would need to install an aftermarket controller that is compatible with electric over hydraulic trailer brakes. I recommend using the P2 # 90885 with harness # 3023-P (and if you live or tow through California you will also need # 30235-P) for a brake controller that is compatible with electric over hydraulic actuators. When you disconnect the factory controller to install the...

I have attached an installation video of this harness being installed on a 2013 Ram with a different brake controller.

  • 2014 Ram Factory Brake Control Not Compatible with 5th Wheel Trailer Electric Over Hydraulic Brakes
  • The 2014 Ram owner's manual states that the factory brake controller only works with newer electric over hydraulic braking systems. They do not provide a year range for what constitutes as newer though so we can only assume that it is 2013 and newer systems. I assume that you have tried to use the electric over hydraulic mode on the brake controller but it did not work. There are some actuators known to have problems interacting with factory integrated brake controllers as well, such...

Installation will be the same on your 2014. If you live in California you will also need Tekonsha Brake Controller Converter with 7-Way Adapter # 30235-P which will activate the truck brake lights when using the manual override on the controller.

  • Is a Tekonsha Plug In Wiring Adapter Kit Needed to Install a Tekonsha Sentinel on 2013 Dodge Ram
  • You are correct that the # 30231-P kit is composed of two components, the first is the # 3023-P adapter that plugs into the brake controller and the second portion of this kit is the # 30235-P (replaced the # 30232-P) that is a stop light adapter and is installed at the 7-way connection plug on your 2013 Dodge Ram Pickup. The 2013 Dodge Ram trucks use a multiplex wiring system and results in a very low output signal to the brake controller, (red wire). Therefore the # 3023-P adapter...

One end of the harness will plug into the rear of your controller, the two connectors on the other end will plug in under the dash as shown in the install video I have linked you to.

  • You do not have to pay a call on your local Ram dealer to install a Prodigy P3 Brake Controller # 90195 unless your truck came equipped with a factory brake controller that you are replacing. As long as this is not the case you will just need the controller unit, a quick-connect harness # 3023-P and if you live in California you will also need Tekonsha Brake Controller Converter part # 30235-P. For reference I have linked written instructions as well as an installation video.

  • Advantage of AirLift Air Springs That Include Internal Jounce Bumpers
  • The advantage of the AirLift air spring systems that have an internal jounce bumper is that in the event of an air leak your Ram 1500 would not lose all of the extra suspension support. You would still have the internal jounce bumper as a fail-safe to absorb some bumps and shocks, although the adjustable leveling ability of air bags would be gone until you could repair the fault. Kit # AL88370 which fits both 2WD and 4WD versions of your Ram 1500 includes these jounce bumpers. The two...

  • Electric Trailer Brake Controller Recommendation for 2013 Dodge Ram Pickup

The linked article will give you more detail. The controller I recommend is the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885, because this unit is highly rated by our customers and is a...
