Proportional Braking

With a proportional brake controller, you can get heavy-duty emergency braking, general braking or slow-to-an-idle braking for your trailer automatically. The intensity with which your trailer brakes are activated and the rate at which they are applied are dependent on the deceleration of your tow vehicle. This means that, unlike time-delay controllers - which send the same amount of preset power to your trailer brakes every time - proportional controllers are able to adapt to every braking situation differently. So, if you slam on the brakes in your truck, your trailer brakes will activate with that same extreme intensity. And if you merely slow down as you approach a red light, your trailer will gradually brake in the same manner. Just set the initial power level, select a boost setting, and you're good to go.


As long as the P2 controller sits level on a horizontal plane and is pointed in the direction of travel, it will sense - via an internal inertia sensor - how your tow vehicle brakes. This inertia-based sensor responds to the deceleration of your tow vehicle as you brake by signaling the controller to send out enough power to your trailer brakes so that they are activated with an intensity that matches. The result is uniform braking across your towing setup. No push-pull action - just smooth, proportional braking every time.


Power Boost for Heavy-Duty Towing

Aside from smoother, more efficient braking, Tekonsha's P2 brake controller also offers a boost feature that gives you more initial braking power for those times when you're towing heavy loads. You can switch boost levels so that the power output to your trailer brakes automatically starts out at either 14 percent or 28 percent of the predetermined power setting.


So, if you boost the initial power so that your trailer brakes activate with 28 percent of the overall intensity at the start, the brakes will reach maximum braking faster. This is particularly beneficial if you are towing a heavy load because the intensity required to stop that load may be far greater than that needed to halt your vehicle. Therefore, sending out more initial power to the trailer brakes - and causing them to reach maximum braking faster - allows you to better control the trailer so that it doesn't push your tow vehicle before coming to a complete stop.


If your trailer weighs less than your tow vehicle, no boost is needed. But if you wish to set the boost so that your trailer leads the braking of your towing setup, you can select level B1. The following table gives an indication of when you might use the different boost levels and the power increases that they offer.


Approximate Gross Trailer WeightBoost LevelIncrease in Initial Power Output
Less than tow vehicle GVWB114%
Equal to tow vehicle GVWB1 or B214% or 28%
Up to 25% more than tow vehicle GVWB2 or B3*28%
Up to 40% more than tow vehicle GVWB3*28%

*Both B2 and B3 offer a 28-percent boost in initial power. But the braking curve for B3 is more aggressive than that of B2. This means that, even though you will start out with the same intensity when using these boost levels, you will get an overall more aggressive braking experience with the higher level. So if you use B3, you will reach maximum braking sooner than if you use B2.


Safety Features

The Prodigy P2 offers advanced safety features to prevent damage to various components of your towing setup. Integrated reverse battery protection shields the brake controller and your trailer's breakaway system from shorts. When the P2 is not in use, it will be in power-saving mode. In this setting, the power draw falls to only 3.6 milliamps, minimizing drain on your vehicle's battery.


When you stop at red lights, or any time that your truck and trailer are at a standstill with the brakes applied for more than 5 seconds, the P2's "hold" feature will activate. When this happens, the power output to your trailer's brakes will be reduced to just 25 percent of the preset power setting so that the brakes will not overheat.


If ever there is a time that you need to brake your trailer separately from your tow vehicle - when traveling down a steep incline, for example - the manual override lever is easily accessible. Pushing this lever engages the brakes on your trailer with full power. In addition, when you activate this override, the brake lights on your trailer will illuminate, properly warning those behind you of the braking action of your rig.


In addition to all of those safety features listed above, the P2 offers diagnostics such as:

  • Open ground
  • Overload
  • Output short
  • Power loss
  • No trailer connection

Automatic Leveling and Simple Installation

The self-leveling feature of the P2 ensures that the brake controller continues to function even as you drive up steep hills or through the mountains. Simply mount it in your cab at any vertical angle, and the controller will level itself automatically thanks to its 360-degree rotational range.


Correct P2 mounting360-Degree P2 mounting

Note: The P2 must be mounted on a level horizontal (side-to-side) plane and must be lined up with the direction of travel for the internal sensor to function properly.


Installation is a snap. After mounting the P2 unit in your cab using the included pocket mount, hardwire one end of the included pigtail harness directly into your vehicle. The other end plugs into the brake controller. To transfer the P2 to another vehicle or to remove it for storage, just unplug the unit and slide it out of the pocket mount.


Installation Accessories

For even easier installation, a vehicle-specific wiring adapter (sold separately) is available for most newer trucks and SUVs. One end of the custom adapter plugs into your vehicle, and the other end plugs into the controller - no hardwiring required.


Note: If a custom brake-control wiring adapter is not available for your vehicle, one of the following will be required:

20-Amp circuit breaker (9506P - sold separately) for 2- to 4-brake applications

30-Amp circuit breaker (38630 - sold separately) for 6- to 8-brake applications

I purchased this controller for my 2005 Jeep TJ. We're towing a 2014 Forest River FLagstaff MAC and, after doing much research, we decided that this unit (along with the universal installation kit ETBC7) was the right one for us! Both the controller and install kit contain everything that you'll need for a clean, professional-looking install! The install took around 2 hours (in my driveway) and the controller works flawlessly! This setup is perfect for a Jeep TJ, the controller fits nicely to the lower left of the steering wheel (out of the way) and the trailer connection is a bolt-on setup that attached to my Reese towing hitch! The trailer connection (with the install kit) has both a 4-pin connection and a 7-pin connection so there is no need for adapters! It is truly a "plug and play" setup!! As far as ordering and customer service goes, this was one of the smoothest transactions I've had in quite some time! There are numerous photos and install videos that will guide you through the install. We'll definitely start with etrailer.com for our next purchase like this! 556457

Yes I did. Bought towing adaptors/wiring parts for a 2001 Dodge Durango (it came from the factory without a tow package) and a 2014 Honda Pilot (came from the factory with a receiver, and only half of the tow wiring harness). I knew a year ago I needed to get these two vehicles ready for a move we’ll be making from TN to SC using a trailer with electric brakes (by August of this year). You have the list of items I purchased. I finally got around to starting the projects. Just finished the 2014 Honda Pilot yesterday. The installation on the Pilot went somewhat well. I made one mistake (human error on my part) I put the 30 amp fuse from the T-one vehicle wiring harness #118265 in the wrong fuse box under the hood. Also, after installing the plug in wiring adapter for the electric brake controller #3070-P and the Prodigy P2, I discovered I had no power running to the brake controller. I didn’t know why. I happened by chance while reviewing the hundreds of customer feedback comments that I needed an additional 20 amp fuse under the hood in one of the fuse boxes in slot number 14, for e-trailer. It seems to work ok now for the Honda Pilot (going to hook up the trailer today for a trial run). I’ll be installing the other components on the 2001 Dodge Durango this week. E-Trailer dosn’t have a “How To” video for the 2001 Dodge Durango Sport without a towing package. Not looking forward to this install at all. A few years back, I did install a receiver and a 4-pin adapter wiring kit to my rear brake lights on this vehicle. I hope with the the Universal Kit #ETBC7 and the additional Prodigy P2 #90885 I bought from you guys I can get the Durango ready to tow the same electric brake trailer. I did find “Trailer Brake Controller Installation-2001 Dodge Ram-etrailer.com” that I hope will make this installation go ok. Will there be any additional fuses or other things that I will need for this vehicle? Thanks, Garry 539117

I installed this model 90885 Prodigy P2 Brake Controller using the ETBC7 Brake Controller Wiring Kit on my 2007 Dodge Nitro. On a scale of 1 to 10, I consider myself about an 8 where it comes to automotive mechanical and electrical work. I also strive to get as close to perfection as possible. To do the job right, it did take some time and it did require paying close attention to the directions for both the wiring kit and the controller. However, the directions were "right on", and all the needed "goodies" to do the job were furnished. My hat is off to ETRAILER for the informative videos they provide and their customer service, which includes very quick shipments of their products. 122727

The Brake controller arrived promptly and worked as expected. If you are shopping for trailer accessories buy it here at etrailer. I found etrailer when I started searching for a brake controller for my truck. Their install video was one of the first search results when I searched out my vehicle which led me to their site which had all of the information you could want. Not only did they have install videos for my specific vehicle but for just about every vehicle application. When shopping on their website you are treated to install instructions as well as the video install instruction for your application as well as installation tips. Many reviewers also upload pictures of their installations giving you lots of ideas for your installation. A simple search lead me to etrailer the wealth of information convinced me to buy from them. 154471

Excellent!! The controller and the install kit came exactly when they were promised and the install instructions were very straightforward. Your average mechanically inclined housewife can do it all by herself, it's that easy. I installed mine on a 2001 Toyota Tacoma Pre-Runner and the only thing that was mildly challenging was finding the brake wire behind the dash, which fortunately the folks at e-trailer explained how to find in their Q & A section. I would definitely recommend the product and install kit. I will be test driving it this weekend with my new teardrop camper. Will amend review and report on that when I get to try it out! Safe towing! 564842

This is the second one I purchased. The first was 10 years ago and installed in my 06 GMC. It has worked flawlessly allowing for safe and smooth stops from normal braking to a few of the panic stops that had to made over the years. The new owner of the truck likes the way it works too. I have multiple trailers and with one initial setup on the lightest trailer was able to tow all of them without changing anything but the boost setting to compensate for the different trailer weights. When needing for a controller for my 07 Silverado there was no other unit that would fill the bill. This P2 looks the same except for the blue display instead of the red. The install took 20 minutes using the direct fit cable ordered with the controller. Setup was easy as with the first unit. I wanted the placement above the parking brake pedal so the OBD II connecter had to be moved. I did the same with the 06 GMC. It is a comfortable place to reach and it keeps the light away from the passenger's eyes at night. As good as the Tekonsha controller is it is even a sweeter deal buying it from etrailer. The quick shipping, excellent pricing and knowledgeable staff are second to none in customer service. 239604

Once again the folks at etrailer came thru for me!!! I asked them to recommend a controller and I bought. It was shipped the day after I ordered (ordered on Sunday) and was delivered way before I expected. I installed it the same day and hooked up to the camper to try it out. Wow I couldn't ask for a better working controller. Set it and forget it. Thanks etrailer. Oh yea, free shipping made it even better. 564962

Setup was easy and this little guy worked fine for a 2000 mile trip with a borrowed trailer last fall. I haven't used it since then and I actually unplugged the power cord so I don't have to look at the lights all the time. But it's ready and waiting for the next use. It's small enough that it's not in the way and I don't even notice it is there when I'm not looking for it. 575372

Seems to work real well but, I can't really judge to much for My trailer's breaks haven't been used for years. Installation was quick. It took about 15-20mins without my trip to the hardware store for an 8mm nut. Tried it out on my trailer and once you get the adjustment right, it works real well. Definitely worth getting a break controller for whatever trailer you tow and this one is real nice. 77404


Comments
Ive owned this for about a year now and have gotten the kinks out of my campers breaks. They seam to work real well with it. I seem to be able to break without the nerve-racking stress I had with the old truck. Proportionality control also is handy going down long hills or in heavy traffic. most of the time I have it in Normal mode dialed to the instructions in the manual. I would Highly recommend those without a break controller get one and this one is, so far, excellent.

This is the second one of these I own. I was moving the first one around in three trucks. So now I should be swapping less. Extra mounting brackets make that pretty easy. I was worried that because it's inertia based it wouldn't work very well but most of the time it's pretty invisible. If you're using the same trailer and similar loads it's great. If you're swapping trailers and changing weights you'll be fiddling with it. It's not a Max Brake but it's not a Max Brake price either,and Max Brake is unavailable anyway. Since it doesn't know how hard your stepping on the brakes it does it's best to guess. So for 90 percent of your driving it's perfect. Off road every dip and rut it's jabbing on the brakes if your foot is touching the brake pedal. Haven't had it in ice yet. I think i'll use my Max Brake for that. Wish it could tell me the amperage to the brakes so I'd know if a magnetic failed (Max Brake), wish it would dim at night (pretty much every consumer electronic), wish I didn't have to unplug it with an empty car dolly (like every controller except for Max Brake). A note about the "boost" function. It basically starts at either 0 (no boost), 2volts (setting 1), 4volts (setting 2) and so on. To help with heavier loads. So do I recommend it? I'll buy another one, do I miss a real proportional controller? Yea... 422122


Comments
Chris D thanks for your feedback on your recent brake controller purchase. The Prodigy P2 brake controller is considered a proportional style brake controller when compared to a time delay brake controller. This controller activates based on the inertia sensor in the controller that sends the braking signal to the trailer based the vehicle deceleration, or how severe the vehicle is nose diving. Therefore the brakes on the trailer are applied in proportion to how the inertia sensor calculates the deceleration of the vehicle. For your next brake controller purchase you may want to consider the Prodigy P3 90195. This controller uses similar inertia detection as the P2, but also has a more detailed display that will allow for additional diagnosis of issues. It also offers a preset option that will allow you to program the controller based on the trailerload that is frequently towed. The display also offers more customizable features vs. the standard display for the P2.

I installed this in a 2006 WK Jeep in about two hours. I used the generic pigtail because I didn't have/couldn't find a vehicle specific connector. There are more specific instructions for wiring it online, be a little creative with your search. I was able to find the same sheet as the generic one packaged with the controller, just specific to a 2005-2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The install took me about two hours, working by myself, and was relatively straightforward. Much of the time was taken up by making the install of wire runs neat and preserving the "factory look," if you are not particular about appearance, the install could go much more quickly. This was my first time installing a brake controller. I haven't had a chance to hook it up to a trailer yet, but it seems to be functioning properly. I am a little concerned that the ground wire on the supplied pigtail is a small gauge, 14, so if I encounter any issues I will switch this out with a larger gauge wire. I also noted that the factory wiring harness supplied by the Jeep dealer for the hitch has a 14 gauge brake wire. While this should be sufficient for up to two axles, if I notice any issues, I will replace this wire also with a heavier gauge. The generic pigtail contained a 12 gauge wire for the brake line. All around, so far very pleased with this purchase. 72226

The online video showing the installation of the Prodigy P2 trailer brake control into a 2011 Ford Ranger was excellent! It made the installation into my Ranger simple and straight forth. I have yet to hook up to my travel Trailer and adjust it for brake setting, but all readout displays thus far are as stated in the instructions. Having previously installed the trailer connector, I did not purchase the installation kit and in retrospect for cost effective and simplicity would recommend anyone to purchase the kit along with the controller. I believe I am going to be very pleased with this product. Thank you 188777

So I purchased a Tekonsha p2 brake control recently after hearing good reviews from friends. After a few weeks of having it installed I have a few gripes: 1. Display - The LED display is super bright and there is no way to turn down the brightness. It is really distracting to have a flashing bright blue light shining up at you at while driving at night. If you are the kind of person who is bothered by a GPS/Phone screens while driving at night then this this will bother you. 2. Wiring - Tekonsha's wiring instructions tell you to wire the brake controller directly to the battery. If you do this the brake controller runs 24/7/365 even when the vehicle is shut off. Do you really want a constant drain on your battery? Instead I chose to use a relay to turn the brake controller on and off with the ignition. It would have been nice if there was a relay included or at least optional wiring instructions. 3. No Off Switch - My previous gripes wouldn't be that big of a deal if you could just manually turn off the brake controller when not in use. But for some asinine reason there is no off switch. So if you don't want the brake controller draining the battery of your parked tow rig, or are tired of the blue light blinding you at night you will have to climb under your dash, remove the brake controller from it's holster and then disconnect the wiring harness... 30936


Comments
There is an automatic shut-off built in to the controller. After a period of time, it will shut down on its own. It will not drain the vehicle battery if wired according to the instructions.Also, try the bracket instead of the holster. With the bracket, you can rotate the controller so the display is not directly aimed at the driver when not used.

David, Thanks for the comment on the blue LED. I am sensitive to the Blue. My eyes no longer can quickly adjust to differing light intensities. I can see in the picture how the blue affect the camera. So I will not buy this one. My old Tekonsha had RED LEDs. I should have kept it. Red is PERFECT for night vision. Red does not interfere with night vision. Thats why its widely use for night time illumination.Blue, absolutely not. Disappointing.

This is my first brake controller so that fact may disqualify me as a reviewer; but then maybe it makes me a better one! I usually do a lot of research before buying something I need that I know little or nothing about, but that was a quick task in this case. EVERY forum, expert review, and installer recommendation had the same two pieces of advice: Buy proportional versus time delay, and buy Tekonsha. Beyond that, it was either buy the Prodigy P2 if you don't need an LCD display or the P3 if you do. I didn't need the LCD display because I'll only be hauling one trailer with the same drag car on it, so now that I have the controller installed and adjusted I don't expect to have to mess with it any more. Installation was easy peasy with the adapter cable for my '10 Tacoma, mounted under the lower dash just beneath the steering column. I did add two slightly beefier sheet metal screws to the dash mount as the two screws provided seemed a little weak. Solid product, works great, took all of 15 minutes to adjust. 44806

Can't say enough for etrailer.com. The big selling point for me was the incredible number of help videos on their site. I didn't feel a need to read the directions since their installation video was very clear. We are currently getting four trailers updated for DOT inspection, so I'm sure I will be back. 115144

    Unless your truck came equipped with a Ford factory trailer brake controller, you will need to install an aftermarket one in order to control the brakes on your trailer. Your truck's computer alone will not be able to act as a brake controller. To upgrade the factory 4-Way flat connector on your 2019 Ford F-150, I recommend using the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness with 7-Way Trailer Connector # 118283. I've attached an installation video we did on a similar year F-150 so you can see how...

  • Where Are the Brake Controller Wires On a 2019 GMC Canyon
    The brake controller wires for a brake controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90885 on your 2019 GMC Canyon should be located under the driver side kick panel next to the emergency brake pedal. These wires will be taped to one another and most likely tucked under another bundle of wires. If you take a look at the install video on a similar 2017 Chevy Colorado you will be able to see the wires revealed at around the 3:45 mark. Please note if you don't...

  • How to Install a Brake Controller on a 2017 Thor Motor Coach Vegas Motorhome
    The process to install a brake controller on a 2016 Thor Motor Coach Vegas Motorhome will be the same as the process to install a brake controller on a 2017 Thor Motor Coach Vegas Motorhome assuming they both have the same trailer connector installed from the factory. For a brake controller, I recommend using either the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90885 or the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90195. The P2 and P3 are our two top selling brake...

  • Dash-Mount & Remote-Mount Trailer Brake Controller Recommendation for 2019 Ram 1500
    I can recommend two options for a new trailer brake controller for your 2019 Ram 1500. For a standard dash-mount controller the one to beat is the tried-and-true Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195. Installation is plug-and-play using wiring harness # 3024-P, as shown in the linked install video. The P3 has a nice clear display, storable settings for different trailers and it automatically levels vertically which makes for installation flexibility. But if you want a controller that can be...

  • Parts Needed to Install 7-way and Brake Controller In 2016 Ford F-150
    For a brake controller for your 2016 Ford F-150 I would recommend the Prodigy P2 Brake Controller part # 90885. This is our best selling brake controller because of how well it works and how easy it is to setup. This is a proportional brake controller that senses the amount of braking the tow vehicle is applying and applies a proportionate amount to the trailer brakes. To install it requires the install harness part # 3035-P and it'll be wired up minus a few connections you'll have to...

  • How to Install a Brake Controller on a 2018 Lexus GX 460
    I have attached a photo of what the pigtail on the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers part # 3040-P looks like. If this plug matches the plug on your vehicle then it will allow you to install the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90885 on your 2018 Lexus GX 460. I called Tekonsha and they have not yet confirmed this harness to work on your vehicle as it has not been tested. However, as long as the plugs are the same it should still work for...

  • Brake Controller Install Video for 2014 Toyota Tacoma that Shows Harness Connections
    I attached an install video below that shows the install harness part # 3040-P used to install a Prodigy P2 part # 90885 in a 2012 Toyota Tacoma that will be the exact process as your 2014 model. In the video we installed the controller on the left side of the steering wheel to help not need a lot of extra slack. Let me know if you need more help!

  • Brake Controller Recommendations for a 2007 Toyota Tacoma
    If you're looking to do a simple upgrade to your original Prodigy brake controller then I recommend using the Prodigy P2 # 90885 or P3 # 90195. These are both just more recent models of what you have and the P3 is the only controller that I know of which uses an LCD screen to make it easier to adjust settings and troubleshoot (when the need arises). To install either of these on your 2007 Toyota Tacoma it's going to be just a matter of unplugging the pigtail at the back of your Prodigy...

  • How to Locate Brake Light Switch on 2019 Jeep Wrangler for Installing Brake Controller
    In order to install the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller # 90885 on your 2019 Jeep Wrangler I actually recommend using the Roadmaster Stop Light Switch Kit # RM-751490. The cold side of the brake light switch is next to impossible to actually access on the new Jeep Wranglers, so you can use the Brake Light Switch Kit to provide the controller with the needed stop light signal for operation. I have attached the complete installation manual and a short video below so you can see exactly...

  • How to Find COLD Side of Brake Light Switch for Hardwiring Brake Controller
    When you are hardwiring a trailer brake controller like the Prodigy P2 # 90885 the red wire connection that provides the triggering signal to the controller should be made to the wire on the COLD SIDE of the brake light switch circuit. This is the wire that carries 12V power ONLY when you press the brake pedal and at no other time. Please refer to the linked photo and article for more details. If you were to connect the Prodigy to the HOT side wire then the controller would constantly...

  • Troubleshooting Brake Controller Install that Causes Error Code When Override Lever is Applied
    We have the # ETBC7 which would be the kit you'd need to make the conversion to a 7-way from a 4-way, but we do not have a different kit wth a brass socket or anything really similar. The 7-ways do last surprisingly long. The double edged sword to using one that has a gasket to seal the lid is that if moisture does get in it's trapped and wouldn't easily evaporate.

  • Recommended Wiring Adapter for 2018 Toyota Tundra SR and Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Brake Controller
    At this time, Tekonsha doesn't have a custom brake controller wiring harness, but Curt does. I recommend making an adapter compatible with your truck using the Curt Custom Wiring Adapter # C51455 and the Pigtail Wiring Harness for Tekonsha and Draw-Tite Brake Controllers - 34" Long # 7894. This will give your the easy connection to your truck and your Prodigy P3 Brake Controller # 90195.

  • Can 2018 Ram 1500 have Aftermarket Brake Controller Installed
    You will not need to get your 2018 Ram 1500 flashed after installing the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 # 90885. This is a simple installation where you use the Plug-In Adapter # 3024-P which connects to the factory brake controller connector under your driver side dash. This will be in line with the accelerator pedal as you can see in the attached installation video. You would have no issues with this install as the truck was designed for having a brake controller installed and used.

  • Brake Controller Harness Location For 2017 Nissan Pathfinder
    If you have a factory 7-way on your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder, the P2 brake controller # 90885 can easily be installed with the vehicle specific wiring adapter # 3050-P; no other parts are necessary. At this time we don't have a picture available to show the plug in location on the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder. The # 3050-P that you used on your Frontier is the same that fits the new Pathfinder because they both use the same harness. I have a video linked of the 2013 Pathfinder that shows the...

  • Where is Brake Controller Install Port on 2019 Ram 1500
    I spoke to Tekonsha about finding the exact location for the brake controller on your truck and they told me that for your 2019 Dodge Ram 1500 "the connector is behind the area in the attached picture and from what we’ve been told you can reach behind the dash, and around a metal brace to get to this connector." The picture I attached came from Tekonsha. The install harness you need is the part # 3024-P for the Prodigy P2 part # 90885 you mentioned.

  • Will a 2017 Ram 1500 Need to be Flashed After a Brake Controller Installation
    Even if you don't have the factory brake controller installed on your 2017 Ram 1500 you shouldn't need to get it flashed to activate the controller. All you would need is the Prodigy P2 # 90885 and the wiring adapter # 3024-P that you saw in the linked video. Their controller might have to have something special done with it to make it compatible but I would be surprised if you had to have your Ram flashed as we typically only see this needing to be done for Jeeps. On the off chance...

  • How to Install a Brake Controller on a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500
    There are plug-in brake controller adapters for your 2002 Dodge Ram 1500 but only for certain brake controllers and if you have a factory trailer connector. If the above is true then please let me know what brake controller you have and I will be glad to see if we have the correct plug-in brake controller adapter for you. For example, if you have the ever popular Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller part # 90885 then you will need to use the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric...

  • Installing Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller in 2015 Ford F-150 with Integrated Brake Controller
    When you have a factory integrated brake controller, you can add an aftermarket brake controller, but it does require removing the factory controller functions. For Ford vehicles, this does mean the TBC needs to be turned off by a local Ford dealer. I've attached an article to assist. Upgrading to a Prodigy P2 # 90885 or P3 # 90195 will be a definite upgrade to your trailer braking from the factory integrated controller. You can install either of these with the custom harness # 22292....

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for 2016 Isuzu NPR
    You can install a brake controller basically in any vehicle but since we don't have a quick-install connector that fits a 2016 Isuzu N-Series like your NPR you'll have to hardwire it. You'll need to start with a 4-way connector like the part # 119190KIT and then convert it to a 7-way so that you can install the brake controller. For that you will want the Brake Controller Install Kit and 7-Way Adapter part # ETBC7. I attached installation instructions and an install video for this product...

  • Installing Trailer Brake Controller on 2014 Chevy Silverado with Factory Pigtail Harness
    You can certainly install a trailer brake controller, such as the excellent Tekonsha Prodigy P2 # 90885, to your 2014 Chevy Silverado using the factory pigtail harness that came with the truck. The brake controller will include a pigtail harness that will plug into the controller and have bare wires on the other end. You can simply hardwire your existing harness to them. On the brake controller wires white is for ground, blue is brake output to the trailer connector, black is 12 volt...

  • Added Brakes to Both Axles of Tandem Axle Horse Trailer and Braking is Still Weak
    Nine times out of ten poor braking performance on electric trailer brakes is related to brake adjustment. The brakes should each be adjusted so that there is a slight but constant drag of the pads on the drum when the wheel is turned. I have linked a video and if you fast forward to about the 4 minute mark you can see how the brakes are adjusted. You will also want to make sure that the trailer and vehicle side connectors are clean and free of corrosion inside and out. Also inspect...

  • Installing Trailer Brake Controller on 2007 Ford E-450 RV with Factory 4-Way
    If your 2007 Ford E-450 has the factory 4-Way connector at the rear then there should indeed be a factory brake controller harness located beneath the dash. It is likely taped to another harness to the left of the steering column behind the emergency brake. I have attached a sample installation video that you can use for reference that shows where exactly you will be looking on your Ford chassis. To connect a brake controller like the excellent Tekonsha Prodigy P2 # 90885 that you were...

  • How to Determine When Trailer Braking Power Adjustment Is Needed on Tekonsha Prodigy P2
    The Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller # 90885 is a great choice. This is a very nice proportional brake controller that will activate the trailer brakes at the same time and with the same intensity that you apply to them in your tow vehicle. It also has an easy-to-read LED display with continuous diagnostic check alerts. After you install the Prodigy P2 and have it securely mounted in your tow vehicle, you will need to set the power to the trailer brakes. How much they need...

    For your 2016 Ford F-150, the Tekonsha Prodigy P2 # 90885 is a great option. To install this, you will need the wiring harness # 22292. This adapter plugs into the built-in connector beneath your vehicle's dashboard. To access this connector, first locate the instrument cluster finish panel in the center of you dash, near the driver's side. Carefully pry the panel out and undo the locking tabs to remove the panel. Plug the adaptor into the mating connector in the large gray housing behind...

  • Brake Controller Installation 2017 Nissan Pathfinder
    There is indeed a brake controller connector under the dash of your 2017 Nissan Pathfinder. It's located under the dash, to the left of the steering column. Look for a harness with a white tag that reads 'Brake Control Conn'. The plug you're needing is attached to that harness. If you're going with a Tekonsha Brake Controller like the # 90885 Prodigy P2 you'd looked at, you'll need the # 3050-P wiring harness. Since you don't have the 7-way trailer connector, you really only need the...

  • Checking to See if 2010 Toyota Tundra has Factory Tow Package to Install a Brake Controller
    A Toyota dealer might be able to tell you if your 2010 Toyota Tundra came with the factory tow package using the VIN so you could check with them. Otherwise if the truck has a factory installed 7-Way trailer connector that is a good indication that it has the tow package. That would mean you could then use wiring harness # 3040-P to plug in a Tekonsha brake controller such as # 90885. You can check for the factory connection point which would be located under the dash above the emergency...

  • How Does Brake Controller Install in 2004 Dodge Dakota
    If your 2004 Dodge Dakota has the factory 7-way trailer connector at the rear of it all you need to install the P2 brake controller part # 90885 that you referenced is the part # 3020-P. This plugs into the port under your dash which makes installing the controller very easy. If you don't have a factory 7-way way you will need to start with a 4-way (if you do not have one). For that you would want the # 118323. From there you would need to convert the 4-way to a 7-way so that you...
