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 P3 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 P3 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 13 percent or 25 percent of the predetermined power setting.


So, if you boost the initial power so that your trailer brakes activate with 25 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 Oldsmobile Cutlass. 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 GVWB113%
Equal to tow vehicle GVWB1 or B213% or 25%
Up to 25% more than tow vehicle GVWB2 or B3*25%
Up to 40% more than tow vehicle GVWB3*25%

*Both B2 and B3 offer a 25-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.


Storable Settings

Customize your P3 and store settings so that you can easily access them later. If you tow multiple trailers, or the same one but with differing loads, store the desired boost and power levels for each so that you don't have to completely reset the controller every time you switch between the trailers. Do other drivers use your towing setup? Customize the P3 display with your desired screen color, brightness and language, and you can easily return it to your preferred settings the next time you tow.


Customizable LCD Display and Advanced Diagnostics

The P3's LCD display features a distinctive look with multiple color and contrast options. It also includes a highly advanced, easy-to-understand roadside diagnostics display. The P3 advanced diagnostics not only notify you of potential problems, but they can also tell you where to begin troubleshooting.

Safety Features

The Prodigy P3 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 P3 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 Oldsmobile Cutlass'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 P3'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.


Automatic Leveling and Simple Installation

The self-leveling feature of the P3 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 P3 mounting360-Degree P3 mounting

Note: The P3 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.


P3 mounted in bracket P3 mount

Installation is a snap. After mounting the P3 unit in your cab using the included bracket, hardwire one end of the included pigtail harness directly into your Oldsmobile Cutlass. The other end plugs into the brake controller. To transfer the P3 to another vehicle or to remove it for storage, just unplug the unit and slide it out of the bracket.


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 Oldsmobile Cutlass, and the other end plugs into the controller - no hardwiring required.


Note: If a custom brake-control wiring adapter is not available for your Oldsmobile Cutlass, 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

Video Transcript for Tekonsha Brake Controller 90195 Review

Today we're going to review part number 90195. This is the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 proportional brake controller. This proportional brake controller will activate your trailer brakes in a proportion to your vehicles braking action. It'll automatically adjust your trailers braking based on the deceleration of the tow vehicle and it activates immediately so there's no pausing like with your time delay brake controllers. It does have an automatic leveling ability because there's an internal sensor on the inside which will detect deceleration even if the controller is not mounted flat. You can position this in a 360 degree range in a vertical plane.

You do probably want to mount out to where you can see this display though. Horizontally you do want to keep it parallel to the direction of travel, horizontal and parallel so you don't want it to be this way or like that. Pretty much like this, but 360 degrees or however you want. On the inside there are five store able settings which will let you customize the control for multiple trailers, varying loads, or different drivers. You cans tore display settings, brake types, language preferences, and desired boost level and power levels.

This button right up here is the boost level button. It has three boost levels you can set it at, B1, B2, and B3. It'll let you adjust the initial braking power and aggressiveness. As you go up in levels it'll increase the boost level because if you're going to be towing a heavier trailer, bigger trailer, or heavier load you'll want to have a higher boost level. Just by pushing this button you can change that.

This controller has a continuous diagnostic check alert. Our diagnostic check which will alert you to any potential problems. It does have some integrated safe guards which will protect your vehicle, your trailer, and your brake controller. A few of them are it'll minimize the drain on the car battery by drawing only 3.6 milliamps when not in use. It'll prevent the trailer brakes from overheating by reducing the power output to them when your on the brakes during prolong stops.

It'll help the brake controller and the trailer brake away system against any shorts. It does have a customizable easy to read LCD display right here. It lets you choose the color of the display, adjust the contrast and pick from different languages. On the bottom here you can see it has a built in rotary style manual override lever. This is used in emergency braking situations where you do want the brakes to be applied immediately. On the back here is a nice quick disconnect feature. When you plug your wiring harness in, it snaps right in or you can unsnap it. This will let you easily remove and store your brake controller when not in use or if you're going to move it to another vehicle. Now if you do move it to another vehicle we do recommend to purchase another wiring harness and mounting bracket that way it'll make it easier when you move this from vehicle to vehicle to just plug it in. now this brake controller does come with the wiring harness. It has the plug on this end. It plugs into the brake controller. The other end are the bare wires to connect to your wiring in your vehicle. Comes with this type of mounting bracket if you prefer to use. Also comes with this type which will just slide in and snap into place. Then you can mount this to the vehicle. Also comes with the mounting hardware for the mounting brackets and some butt connectors to connect the wires to your vehicles wiring harness. The last feature has a nice pouch, nice nylon coated pouch with a hook and loop fasteners so that you can store your brake controller in there, close it, and carry it with you. It is nice. The interiors very nice and soft to protect your brake controller. Now what I want to do is we're going to plug this wiring harness in and hook it up to some power source to be able to show you some of the LCD display and just what some of the features might be. Let me just get these four wires hooked up here so we got some power to the controller and last wire here. There we go. We're all hooked up. Now we're just going to plug in the harness. I'm going to turn the power on. With the power on you'll be able to see it comes on. It says, Tekonsha P3. Hit any button. So we just hit this one. Now it shows you the display. The 0.0 is the power display. The very bottom corner here it says, E. That would mean electric setup for electric brakes. You can go in and change that to where it'll say, H. For electrical over hydraulic. Up above that it says, T1. This is for trailer 1 storing. We mentioned you had five storaeable settings so you can go T1 all the way up to T5. Up here it just shows a tow vehicle and a trailer hooked up. Up in this top corner there's nothing showing now, but when you push this boost button you can see it says, Set boost level 1. It'll say, B1. Hit it again it's B2. Hit it again, B3. Hit it again it'll turn the boost off. Right there's your boost button. That'll put it to whatever boost button you want. Down here is a menu button. You can hit this and it'll pull up the menu. It shows you that you can change the display, the brake type, or even has a help. Exit out of there. Over here is up and down buttons. When you set your power what you can do is just push one of those and it'll show 6.0 if you go down, 5.9, 5.8 you can go up. If we set it at 6.0 then what'll happen is once that screen, let's exit out of here. Now we had that power set at 6.0 so when you push your manual override, as you can see, it'll go all the way up to the 6.0. that's what you set your power rating at. When you push that that'll give you your full power. It ramps up to all the way full power. There was your boost setting. Again, there's just a few more displays. It'll say, this is an exit button that you can use to exit out of there. Hit your menu again. Go up or down. It shows you the many different features. Very nice easy to use and it also shows you any diagnostic checks you can do on your hook up to show if there's any shorts or anything. That should do it for the review on part number 90195. The Tekonsha Prodigy P3 proportional brake controller. It does come with a limited lifetime warranty.

This unit was little bit of an issue to install (not too bad though), I also bought the # 3050-P Tekonsha Plug in wiring adaptor (This makes it very easy to connect to the existing harness in the Nissan without hacking the wiring to connect to it), the lower part of the dash had to come apart so I could route the wiring to the area where I wanted to install the unit which is where Nissan would install their unit as you can see in the photo, plugged it in and it came up as instructions said it would, seems to be okay will have to wait and see when I go to use it. 575462

Prodigy P3 brake controller was a very easy install with the help of etrailer video for 2007 chevy silverado new body style. Melissa W. was a big help with ordering everything I needed for the install. She knew what she was talking about. She was huge help before, during and after the purchase. She followed up with emails to confirm my order arrival and sent me other information about the install that I didnt even ask for. Great customer service so far! Thanks Melissa! Seems like a well built product. I will follow up with a review once I get to use it with my new trailer. So very glad I pruchased this model from etrailer.com. I went to the trailer store down the road from me and the same model would have cost me $40 more. Good job etrailer and Melissa W. 5 stars so far! 574141

Bought a Rockwood A122 camper that I pull with a 2018 Toyota Tacoma (I previously had a 2017 Tacoma). Bought the Prodigy P3 after doing a bunch of research online. When it showed up I was kind of blown away with how easy it was to install. The Tacoma has a Trailer Brake connector stuffed up under the left foot kick panel. Popped the panel off, found the connector and hooked it up. That's it! Then zipped two screws in the mount on the lower lip of the dash which no one will ever see even if the brake controller gets removed. Took me a little fiddling around to get it set for the right amount of braking that suited me but I have yet to touch the thing or mess with it since installing it. It just WORKS. It's small, unobtrusive (if you mount it in the right place) and it just works day in and day out with a minimum of interaction. Get one of these. 574016

Seems to work good, but the trailer brakes could not be adjusted to lock up no matter how high I adjusted the settings on the controller. According to the owners manual it should be able to lock up. Could it possibly be defective? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks 575180


Comments

The first thing youll want to check is that the brakes are properly adjusted. Jack up the trailer and use a brake adjusting tool to run the star wheel on the adjuster down until the wheel cant be turned by hand. Then, back it off by about 10 notches of the star wheel, or until theres only a very slight brake drag. If the brakes are properly adjusted, use a voltmeter to test the wiring at each brake magnet while a helper activates the manual override on the brake controller. You should see about 10-12 volts, but NO LESS than 10 volts. If youre seeing less than 10 volts, check the connector on the trailer and on the vehicle, making sure nothing is damaged or corroded. Trace the brake feed wire from the trailer connector back to the brake magnets, making sure that all connections are secure and that the grounds are connected to clean, bare metal. Examine the brake magnets themselves, as well. If the face of the magnet is excessively grooved or worn to the point where the copper wiring in the magnet is visible, the braking effectiveness will be greatly reduced and replacing the magnet would be recommended. Its usually recommended to replace the drum and magnet at the same time, if the armature surface of the drum shows any wear.

I pull a 30 ft. fifth wheel. My break controller that came in my diesel pickup gave up the ghost. To fix it would be to expensive. I purchased a Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Break Controller and my problem was solved. It works very well. 575187

I have not connected the Brake Controller yet, but all I can say It was very easy to order. The price of the unit beat all other companies that was selling the exact model. The free shipping helped also. I thought it would take a week for the controller to arrive, but it was on my door step in two days with regular shipping. etrailer is a GREAT company for their products. Before I look at any other company for an item, I check with Etrailer first. I am getting ready to place a order with them now for an additional item. Etrailer, YOU GUYS ROCK!! Thank you for the great service! It has been a long time since I have been able to say that about a company!! 440018


Comments

The brake controller was installed and worked exactly the way it was described. The controller installation was very simple after reviewing the video for the product. In my opinion the video is a big plus in purchasing items from etrailer. Once again, keep up the GREAT work and customer service and I will always be back and refer all your products to family and friends!! Thank You Again!!

Easy installation if you are the least bit handy electrically. Works as advertised with my 2001 4runner. Definitely the nicest piece of technology in my old truck! A trailer with good brakes feels like its not even there when stopping, even on steep downhills. I like that I can easily remove the unit from the clip mount and put it away from prying eyes when not in use. 572123

Loved the brake controller but didnt come with the adapter. Had to order it separately. Wasnt happy about that now i have to wait another week. To hook it up. 573601


Comments

The brake controller itself is not a vehicle specific item, itll include a universal harness that terminates in blunt cut wires that can be wired directly to the vehicle. There are a few dozen different vehicle-specific harnesses that will allow a plug and play installation, if your vehicle is equipped with the connector under the dash. The vehicle-specific harnesses arent included with the brake controller, theyd need to be purchased separately.

I purchased the Prodigy P3 and wiring kit for my 2017 RV on a Ford E350 chassis. I removed the small dash panel to locate the Ford wiring harness, then along with the 3034-P wiring kit it is simply plug in, adjust settings and go. 572625

These people sell great products at a great price but I think where they differentiate themselves from their competition is the information they offer. Not only the product itself but numerous installation videos. I highly recommend you check their prices and reviews before purchasing from another supplier. Very friendly customer service and quick reply with product information questions as well. Highly recommend! 571625

Product was as expected but I expected it a lot sooner than I got it. It was sent UPS/Post Office.

The actual installation of the prodigy P3 took less than 5 minutes with the plug-in adapter. If you have a factory tow package get the adapter-no double checking each wire to be sure it is right, no cutting, or wire nuts-just plug and go. another 2 or 3 minutes to set it. Honestly and it has been said in other reviews- it took longer to get the screwdriver and then figure exactly where I wanted it! checked settings at the school parking lot and it works as advertised. the brakes on my truck told me thank you for relieving them of some of the load. Thank you Tekonsha. Etrailer gets thanks for being the best with price, service and followup. 567811

After tiring of jerking, over reacting brakes from my trailer, or delayed almost no brakes (there was no in between) from my old 90's era Tekonsha Voyager XL (that has served me well through three trucks...until this last year), I finally decided to upgrade. What a difference! The P3 is silky smooth. I took it for a test run pulling a 8x21 enclosed trailer (empty at 3800#), 2 brake axles. Was easy to dial in. I started at a much lower setting then the instructions say. I never set my brake controller by "if the trailer tires slide, reduce power" meathod. I just paid $500.00 for good trailer tires (not china bombs) and I'm not fond of locking them up on pavement. So, i started low and worked my way up until I liked the braking action. Display is easy to read, day and night, even with my 53 year old eyes. It does concern me to see several pictures and one install video of the controller mounted below the dash. Very difficult to reach the overide without compromising your driving position and view of the road. Maybe it's just from towing with a controller with heavy loads for so many years...when you need to grab that overide there is a good chance its because there is a 'situation'. I'm right handed so mine is mounted just above my right knee. I only have to extend my arm to reach the overide. In fact, I make a habit of occasionally using the overide just to make sure I know how it feels...in an emergency, I don't want any other surprises. lol. I absolutely love etrailer.com...the best customer service on the web, good prices and great products. 565827

Just installed unit in 2008 Tundra Crewmax, took 45 minutes tops. Very intuitive to set up. Played around with the plastic slide in mount for a while, but finally decided to go with traditional fixed mounting bracket. Just felt more secure. Overall very pleased with product so far. Have not had an opportunity to use it towing trailer yet, but anticipate no issues. 568688

Extremely easy to set up but had to go on line to etrailer to understand how to plug it in to my truck. Directions for product from manufacturer is hard to understand. Product is awesome though. It worked right away perfectly. I picked this unit based on the comments I saw from my R-pod owners facebook page. Many people suggested I buy this unit. Glad I purchased it. 568253

Writing my one year follow-up review on my Tekonsha Prodigy 3. Well so far so good, works just like day one. I have it installed on my 2012 Toyota Tundra hauling a 28' travel trailer and it does an awesome job. I actually recommended this to my neighbor right before he was going to buy another brand without the manual brake override lever and he thanks me very time he gets back from a trip. I don't use it as often but I've been towing for a while and this is his first trailer so he feels safer using it, I know I do. So if you ask me I do recommend getting this brake controller. Easy installation and adjust to your braking power. Has lots of features and makes you customize your braking power. I also like the case it comes with to protect it when not in use. That's basically all I have for this controller. 565952

Ask the Experts about this Tekonsha Brake Controller
Do you have a question about this Brake Controller?


  • 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 menu option on the display that allows the user to switch between the two systems. I have included a link to the installation details for the P3. The P2, # 90885, will also work with both electric brakes and electric over hydraulic brake systems but the mode is selected...

  • How to Convert a Trailer with Surge Brakes to Electric Over Hydraulic Brakes
  • You can convert surge brakes to an electric over hydraulic braking system. To do this, you will need an electric over hydraulic actuator and a brake controller. For an electric over hydraulic actuator, I recommend looking at the Carlisle HydraStar units. If your trailer has drum brakes, you will want part # HBA-10. If your trailer has disc brakes, then you will want part # HBA16. I have also attached a link to all of our electric over hydraulic actuators for you to check out your options. The...

  • What is the Best Trailer Brake Controller
  • A proportional brake controller is definitely the way to go if you are looking for the best. The P2 # 90885 and P3 # 90195 will operate the exact same as they have the same internals. The difference between the two is that the P2 uses more of a traditional style of display that will show codes for error messages and connection status. The P3 will use a much larger display that will show actual phrases that won't require any deciphering, has a much better diagnostic setup, allows you...

  • Can I Tow a 5th Wheel Travel Trailer with a Semi Truck or 18-Wheeler
  • The king pin dimensions can be the same between fifth wheel trailers and large commercial trailers. Both types of trailers often use a standard 2 inch king pin although semis sometimes have a 3-1/2 inch. As long as your truck fits a 2 inch king pin it can work. Semi trucks were not technically designed to tow camping style fifth wheel trailers, so there are several factors that you will want to take into consideration before attempting to tow. First, you will want to make sure the...

  • Troubleshooting Factory Electric Brake Controller Not Working on a 2005 Ford F-350
  • I agree that you most likely have an issue on the truck side. The voltage at the brake magnets when the vehicle is sitting still and the brake pedal is pressed will only read a small amount with the Ford integrated brake controller on your truck. If you are using the manual slide to activate the trailer brakes you should get somewhere between 12 and 13 volts with the controller set to the maximum setting. If this is the case there may be an issue with the brake controller. The 2005 and...

  • Tow Package Wiring Location for Brake Controller Install - 2016 GMC Canyon
  • According to my research, the 2016 Colorado/Canyon with the factory 7-way won't have a plug under the dash for installing a brake controller, but there will be bare tow package wires that you can wire the brake controller directly to. The tow package wiring is located behind the left kick panel, as you suspected. The wiring pigtail that came with your brake controller would wire up to the tow package wiring as follows: Black pigtail wire connects to red/green tow package wire (12-volt...

  • Location of Brake Controller Port Under Dash of 2015 Toyota Tundra with Factory Tow Package
  • The brake controller port for the 2015 Toyota Tundra is located behind the section of the dashboard with the tow/haul button. To reach the connector you will need to locate the notch in the access panel in the center of the dash near the driver's side. Using a trim panel puller like # ALL648544, carefully pry the panel out and undo the locking tabs to remove the panel. You will find the mating connector behind this portion of your dashboard. The correct harness for your 2015 Tundra is...

  • Brake Controller Installation on 2018 Toyota Tacoma

If your 2018 Toyota Tacoma has a factory 7-way trailer connector, then the Tekonsha Custom Wiring Adapter for Trailer Brake Controllers - Dual Plug In # 3031-P will plug into a wiring harness found behind the plastic molding on the far left side under the driver's side dash. I've attached a photo to assist as well as the installation details for your Tacoma. If you do not have the factory...

  • Installing Brake Controller on 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4
  • Thank you for sending the photo, it really makes things easier! The connector you show in your photo is not the connector for installing a brake controller. If you look on the firewall behind the emergency brake, you will see a white wiring junction box. The blue female connector that accepts the # 3020-P brake control wiring adapter is located alongside or on top of this junction box, as you can see in the photo I have edited for you. I have also linked you to an install video that...

  • How To Determine Model Year of Travel Trailer or RV To Determine Age?
  • Trailer years are found based on VIN. The 10th digit of your vin gives the manufacturer model year. In the VIN you provided I put an X for all the digits other than the 10th. The letter J is the proper digit for a 2018 model year on your Salem Travel Trailer. I've attached a couple of photos to assist.

  • Recommended Brake Controller Plug-In Adapter for 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • Yes, the Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter # 3016 referenced in your question is confirmed to fit your 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500. One end of the adapter will plug into the brake controller itself and the other end will connect to the built-in port beneath the Silverado's dash. If you are still needing a brake controller, I highly recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195. This is an excellent, proportional controller that will activate the trailer brakes at the same time and with the...

  • OEM Electric Brake Controller Not Working when Brake Pedal is Pressed on a 2006 Ford F250
  • From your testing and description of the problem it sounds as if your OEM brake controller is not functioning properly. Many of the 2005 and 2006 Ford OEM brake controllers had internal issues that cause owners to replace them with an aftermarket brake controller. The best way to test this is to sever the output wire that exits the OEM controller and test it for power when the brake pedal is pressed. If no voltage increase is detected on the output wire when the brake pedal is pressed,...

  • Can a Trailer with Electric Brakes be Towed by a Cadillac SRX Without a Brake Controller
  • It is possible to tow a trailer with electric brakes if your tow vehicle is not setup to tow a trailer with electric brakes. The brakes simply would not work. Electric trailer brakes are powered by a brake controller. Brake controllers are separate units that are installed on the tow vehicle. Most states have laws that require brakes on the trailer to be functional if the trailer exceeds a certain weight. If you will be driving the trailer on any main roadways, I would recommend checking...

  • Does the Tekonsha P3 Trailer Brake Controller Turn Off or Stay On All the Time
  • The P3 brake controller, # 90195, will go into a sort of sleep mode after it detects no movement for 15 minutes. While it is on it does not draw very much power. What you can do to make sure it goes to sleep is exit the truck after turning it off, walk away for 15 minutes or so, then come back and peek in through the window to see if it has turned off. Of course you could always unplug the controller if you wanted. If it has not, there may be a wiring issue or something causing the controller...

  • How To Turn Off The Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Brake Controller # 90195
  • The Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Brake Controller, # 90195, does not have an on and off switch. It will go into sleep mode after several minutes of no activity. The power draw when it is in the sleep mode is so negligible that it will not discharge the battery. If you want the brake controller totally off, then you would have to unplug the connector from the back of the controller.

  • How to Install a Brake Controller on a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  • To install a brake controller on your 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 4x4, you will just need the vehicle specific plug-in adapter. These adapters are usually brand specific. For example, if you go with the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 brake controller, # 90195, which is one of the top brake controllers on the market, then you will want to use their adapter, # 3016. I've attached an installation video of this setup on a 2017 Silverado for you to check out. If you are undecided on a brake controller...

  • Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller 90195 Displays Message Output Shorted No Brakes
  • If your Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller, part # 90195, displays the error message OUTPUT SHORTED NO BRAKES, the potential causes are a short in the brake output circuit somewhere between the brake controller and the trailer brake assemblies, or a shorted or damaged brake magnet. Since you do have power reaching the trailer brake assemblies the issue is probably within them, rather than within the tow vehicle wiring, but if you wish you can still test the vehicle 7-way connector for a correct...

  • Locating the Brake Controller Wiring Port on a 2017 Ford E-450 Class C Motorhome
  • Your 2017 Ford E-450 van chassis/RV will use brake controller wiring harness # 3034-P. Ford only makes this van chassis for the RV and emergency vehicle industries now but the 2017 chassis is the same as the 2014 model year which was the last year it was available to the general public. I attached a few pictures that show which panel you will find the harness behind, if this doesn't match your interior I would still recommend starting in these locations. For a brake controller I...

  • Trailer Lights Work But Brakes are Not Working
  • If you have a 7-Way on both your trailer and tow vehicle you will first want to make sure that you have a brake controller, like the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 # 90195. A brake controller is what is used to send power from the tow vehicle and tells the trailer how much braking power is needed. If you do not have one, just let me know what the year/make/model is of your tow vehicle and I will be happy to help you make sure you have the correct equipment.

  • Troubleshooting Ford Factory Trailer Brake Controller that Fails to Operate EOH Trailer Brakes
  • The factory integrated brake controller in your 2013 Ford F-150 does have a second operation setting for EOH trailer brakes, unlike the 2012 and earlier model year controllers. So, it SHOULD work with your Titan BrakeRite EHB Electric-Hydraulic Actuator # T4813100 WITHOUT the adapter # T4846000. If you have access to a trailer with electric brakes you can test the controller (using its electric trailer brake setting, of course) to see if it functions correctly in that mode. If not it...
