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 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 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 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 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 vehicle. 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 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

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.

First, a huge "Thank You" to Janice!!! You are the best, and the main reason I am the proud owner of Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller! (see, I initially had an issue with my standard online payment service and almost canceled my order because of it) So I went old school and picked up the phone, one with a cord and spoke to a human being. Her name is Janice, and she made me feel confident that I could trust her and etrailer. And as a result, 4 days after placing my order with her I received my package. That's incredible. I am very happy and will most certainly do business with etrailer again in the future because of Janice. I don't have any experience with brake controllers. So I can't really comment on how much better or worse this one is to any others. But since I am new to the B/C scene maybe this can be considered an unbiased, non professional review of the Tekonsha P3. My general skill level is "requires supervision around all power tools". But I do have some mechanical ability (snicker). So I will just say, if I could install this thing anyone should be able to do it. Of course I also bought the OEM wiring harness for my vehicle so even I was able to figure out which plug went where. On A scale of 1 to 10 I give it a 3 (I'm somewhat large and getting under the dash wasn't easy or it would be a 1). And as others have said, deciding where to mount it actually took longer. I attached mine to the top of the lower dash cowl and it fits almost tight to the dash but still within the 180 degree limit. This positions the controller at the same height as my knee and puts it within fingertip reach while resting my hand on my knee. I can see the controller perfectly through the steering wheel spokes. I went with the green screen background. it seemed to provide the best view in all lighting conditions. The controller itself works perfectly and the set-up was a breeze. Once installed all the functions worked as described. The real time vehicle diagnostics are a plus. I like being able to monitor my battery voltage to the decimal place if I want to. I'm sort of a techno geek so this is really cool. I set the B/C voltage per the instructions and will only use the boost feature if I am in a hurry or feel the trailer is at max load, but my truck is 8k lbs so you may want to set yours to suit your own conditions. I highly recommend the Tekonsha P3 brake Controller if you want the latest and probably the best controller out there in this price range. I highly recommend the OEM wiring harness if your skills are not pit crew comprable and want the easiest install possible. And, I highly recommend you buy it from etrailer if you want to get it at the best price available (I checked them all) and want the added security you're buying from one of the best online retailers that sells this product. And do yourself a favor, go old school for a change, use the phone and call them, and ask for Janice, although I'm willing to bet everyone there is as nice as her. Rob 12695

How long is the wiring harness? I want to mount the brake controller on the right side of my steering wheel. It looks short in the picture. Thanks! Tom

The hitch and controller was installed on a 2002 Chevy 2500HD. It took roughly 15 min to install the Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller, plug it in and program it. As far as the B&W Turnover Ball Hitch, I cut the hole in the bed and cut the heat shield out the day before while I was waiting for the hitch to arrive. The next day my parts arrived, I laid out all the parts to make sure everything was there and then started the install. I didn't want to cut the 1"x1/2" notch out of my fender well to get the angle iron in so I spent about 15 min. trying to get it up on top the frame from underneath the truck. A waste of time. Do like the instructions say, cut the notch and slide it straight across the top of the frame. It will save time and aggravation. After getting both braces in place I ran a piece of rope down thru the hole and pulled the hitch plate up into place and tied it off. I installed all the bolts finger tight, put the side plates on and tightened everything up. It looks nice and I saved myself a $435.00 installation fee. With out a lift and without taking my rear tires off it took about 3 1/2 hrs. to install by myself. The only thing I want to say to B&W is don't place the heavy metal hitch parts on the booklet with the packets of Lithium Grease in it, they bust as the picture shows. Last but not least, thank you Sherry for all your help with my order and getting it to me quick in such short notice. I really appreciated it. 358379

Installed P3 this weekend in 2013 Tundra Crewmax with towing package and pre-wire. Extremely easy, even with the center console installation. Will let the photos tell the story. Did have to combine the P3 included harness with the additional OEM harness to gain the length I needed. Plug and play with the pre-wire. Hooked up to trailer and set boost levels for varying loads. Works great! Vast improvement over older model Tekonsha controller in my Ram 2500 Diesel. Pull a Kiefer BP horse trailer: about 3600 lbs empty, 7500 with 3 quarter horses and gear. Usually pull 6-8 times per year, with only 1-2 horses. Short distance and flat terrain. It took about an hour to install. Dad is a retired USAF/FAA radar technician with every tool known to man. He QC'd the job. Will try to write better review later. 96005

To remove the small center console cubby hole you need to open both 12V outlets, then using your thumb and index finger, slowly work the cubby out. I used a very thin straight edge screwdriver to get it started as well. Helps to have two people. Once out, I used a rotozip tool to cut the back out. I thought I could get away with simply drilling a hole for the wires, but you will need more room. Recommend leaving a lip on the bottom edge where you cut out so small items dont fall behind your dash. Hope this helps.

Great write up Chris M. I just mounted mine and would like to make one note about the little yellow clips that hold in the console. They are very good at making a quick exit to some unknown location but I was able to fine the Toyota part number incase someone may need it. It is 90467-10203. They cost about a dollar. I got lucky and finally found the one I lost and saved myself a dollar.

I purchased the Tekonsha P3 proportional brake controller and the Plug-in Wiring adaptor for my Dodge Ram Diesel 2005. It shipped promptly and arrived on schedule. I plugged it into the under-dash socket in about 30 seconds and tried it out before installing it; it powered up immediately and everything looked good. It took a few minutes to install the P3 bracket to the dashboard just to right of the steering column and about the level of my knee. The adaptor has enough length to put it left or right of the steering column, but not very high on the dash. The adaptor made the installation quite simple – gathering the tools and deciding controller placement took 20 minutes out of the total 30 minute installation time. The actual installation was to drill 2 holes and screw in 2 screws to the dash and 2 screws to the pocket bracket, then tying the cord to other wiring behind the dash. Settings for electric brakes and other info into the unit took under 2 minutes. Wow! What a difference - the braking was strong, smooth and uniform. I can only compare on my vehicle to braking without a controller unit engaging the trailer brakes, but it showed me how important those brakes are to an easy and safe stop. I have driven other people’s trucks with loaded horse trailers, and their controller units did not give anything like the constant readout of trailer brake voltage and other information this one gives you. This is obviously a high quality unit with everything I need and more. My priority is horse safety on the road and that includes smooth, proportional braking. I like the ability to monitor the voltage of the vehicle system, the volts and amps to the trailer, and troubleshooting capabilities. I spent 6 or 8 hours reading everything on brake controllers before ordering this one, and compared it to several other highly-rated units. While it is available for similar pricing from eBay and other sites, I found etrailer.com's website to make things very easy, such as finding the exact Plug-in Adaptor for my vehicle, finding videos about various controllers, and finding instructions for installing the unit. Thanks to the etrailer.com website, I was able to check under my dash to verify the brake controller plug was there waiting to be used, and I had a very realistic idea of the installation procedure in advance. Getting the Plug Adaptor in the same shipment was important too, and let me install it immediately. I was glad I ordered from etrailer.com and would not hesitate to order from them again. 164083

Overall, this probably the best brake controller on the market, as far as braking performance. It provides braking as smooth and safe as is possible with electric brakes. Adjustments are easy, with provisions for remembering the settings for multiple trailers. The manual control toggle/knob is very sturdy and smooth operating. The P3 controller is not without some design faults. The supplied brackets are OK for some installations, but they both position the controller too far from the mounting surface, often creating a knee-banger situation. While trying to figure out how to mount the controller in our new 2015 Nissan Xterra, I finally gave up on the brackets and used some industrial quality 3M dual-lock fastener (like velcro on steroids) to mount the controller. The controller is securely mounted right up against the lower dash panel, but is still is removable, if needed (see my photo). Although the curvy potato-like shape is aesthetically pleasing (to some), it would have been much easier to mount, with less wasted space, if the four sides were straight. The body of the connector that plugs into the rear of the unit should have been designed so that it is recessed into the unit, instead of sticking out almost an inch. That would have made the controller able to be installed with its rear panel right up against something, when necessary. Finally my biggest complaint is with the quality (or lack thereof) of the LCD display. The display on my controller is barely readable even when viewing perpendicular to the screen. If you are off axis by more than 20-30 degrees the display is unreadable. Rarely is it possible to mount a brake controller where the driver has a straight shot at the display. This is almost never the case. Modern LCD technology provides affordable displays that have an incredible off-axis visibility. I would have thought that Tekonsha would have included a display that is up to the same level of quality as the rest of the P3 controller. Instead, it appears they used a bottom of the line LCD with 1980’s technology. I tried all combinations of settings for color and brightness. Some were worse than others, but none of them were good. 233610

I was in the market for a controller for my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and this was a great controller and the price from etrailer was very competitive with other sites. What ended-up being the deciding factor for me on where to purchase the controller was the ease-of-use of the etrailer site. They made it simple to find and compare controllers and getting the correct wiring harness for my application was easy. In addition to the site they have outstanding customer service. The controller was shipped the day after I ordered it (on a Saturday no less) with free upgraded shipping. They even followed-up with me once the controller arrived at my house. I wish all sites had this level of customer service! 29739

OK, How did you get the shift lever off? I got the two screw out from the bottom of the storage bin, but it still will not come out. How did you get the upper trim with all the electronic buttons off? I will not drill a wire hole thru the bin without removing it for fear I may hit or damage something right behind the bin, or have the way blocked by something so I couldnt route the brake controller cable through the hole I just drilled. I cant get at the bin from the gas pedal area. In fact I cant even see it from there. Thanks.

I purchased the Tekonsha P3 electric brake controller to use on our 2017 Pacifica Touring-L Plus with towing package. Our Pacifica was pre-wired for an electric brake controller. So along with P3, I ordered the plug-in wiring adapter 3045-P made for the Pacifica. First I determined where to mount the P3, making sure the wiring adapter would reach the P3. I located the Pacifica's pre-wired harness. I had to remove an empty plug that was installed into the receptacle on the end of the pre-wired harness. I then plugged the the adapter into the now empty pre-wired receptacle and then the other end into the P3 (the P3 lit up immediately). I zip tied the wires of the adapter in a way that it would not interfere with anything under the dash. The install was then completed. I liked how easy it was to install everything. The P3 will be used to control the brakes on our R-Pod travel trailer. Adjusting the P3 was as easy as reading the instructions that came with it. The display, when the controller is not in use, will light up when using the vehicles brakes (trailer not connected). When the vehicle is not in use the display will eventually turn off. See the pictures I supplied. 426461

George J, Wanted to write good points about your customer service and the Tekonska braking system. Included are multiple pictures of the unit installed on my VW SUV. First off, I am not an expert in any way in installing and wiring. I had the good fortune of having Steve Kunzel, master mechanic at Westside VW in Minneapolis install the unit.(see Fig 1) The first unit sent did not function and was quickly replaced by etrailer.com at no charge. Second unit is pictured (fig 2) and works well. The trailer is used for caring dogs and gear to various dog events and hunting. The trailer weight is about 4500 pounds and the electronic braking system is necessary for good control of the SUV and trailer when braking. Thanks for all your help getting me up and running. 289246

I bought this for my Chevy Silverado 1500. For the most part, its pretty good. I tow pretty often but I don't use the brake controller much -- usually I'm towing things that don't need it. But, I have it, and its ready for when I do need it. The good: * Its nice and featureful and has a very top-of-the-line feel to it. * Its easy to read, easy to use. * Very easy to unplug or completely detach from the car when you just want to store it -- this is a big plus for someone like me who isn't using it every day. The bad: * It came with 2 different frames; one billed as "permanent" and one billed as "portable" (i.e. easily removable). The permanent one wouldn't fit right in the space I had (wasn't the fault of the device), so I had to use the portable one. The permanent one is the one that's a big metal frame, and the portable one is the smaller frame + the plastic piece that looks kinda like a spider attacking the device. The portable mount is actually pretty flimsy and it is really hard to get the device in and out of it. Once you pull it out of the mount, it doesn't really want to go back in. So I just leave my device in all the time, and unplug it when I'm not using it. Fortunately, its really easy to plug and unplug from the electrical system, which is what I cared about. * Installation was confusing. This is my 1 year follow-up review so, unfortunately, I don't remember exactly why I was confused ... There was 1 wire that was really unclear where it connected. My Chevy wires were labeled a certain way and the device's manual described the wiring using very different language. I ultimately matched wire gauges to figure out which one goes where and that worked out for me. But there was an extended period of head-scratching where I was trying to figure out the wiring. Ultimately, it's a good device, but if the portable mount was a little easier to use I'd give it a 5 star. Because its kind of shoddy in that respect, I've got to mark it down a star. 358859

Installed this on my GMC 3500 Duramax with factory integrated brake controller. Not happy with the integrated brake controller on my truck, had problems from the start on 3 different occasions with "Service Trailer Brake" warning on DIC, which of course means NO TRAILER BRAKES. Decided the P3 was the perfect solution. Many more features than the IBC, plus the P3 will also work with electric over hydraulic disc brakes should we ever need that in the future. Fairly easy install on this particular truck, the most difficult thing was running the brake wire from the controller to the 7-pin plug. (This is only required when installing in a vehicle with a factory installed brake control) Well worth the extra effort. 39447

Recommendation...dont mount it to low out of reach. When you have a trailer go astray...your seat belt will tighten and then you cant reach your controller to help you out. Believe me I mounted my too low and out of reach, and I was seconds from ditching the truck and trailer. Was very lucky. Just a recommendation.

We own a 2015 Ford F150 SuperCrew, 3.5 EcoBoost with Max Tow package. Of course, equipped like this, the truck came with a factory-installed, integral brake controller. That's good news. The bad news is that there various internet forums report there to be an unusually high failure rate of these factory controllers. So, being a bit paranoid about being out in the middle-of-nowhere in our truck and travel trailer and suddenly having (a) locked brakes, or (b) no brakes at all, I decided to install a high quality aftermarket controller. Based on company reputation and prior experience with Tekonsha products, I selected the P3 and proper 'plug and play' wiring harness. Following Tekonsha's instructions as well as vehicle-specific on-line videos, I found the installation to be super easy. I elected NOT to take the truck to the Ford dealer to have the computer re-flashed for the absence of the factory controller. Now, each time the truck is started, I have to click "OK" to clear the 'TRAILER BRAKE FAULT" message... to me that's no big deal. Also, when compared side-by-side, the Ford controller seems flimsy and cheap, whereas the P3 has a quality feel, fit and finish. Wanting the controller to be easy to see and easy to reach, I chose to install the P3 on top of the dash. So, I am delighted with the Tekonsha P3 and - as always - with etrailer's service. 400815

Thanks for the great service. I did indeed received the controller when and as promised. Thanks to the thorough directions on your website I was able to install in about 15 minutes. While I could have bought the controller elsewhere I chose to buy from you folks because of the support documentation for my application. I haven't actually pulled my travel trailer so I haven't tested the controller yet. Should find out Saturday. Not a great picture but one is attached. 115205

Ive pulled my 28 feet ultra light several times and the controller has done a great job. This is my first experience pulling a trailer using electric brakes and this controller has made it a good one. The only issue so far is that with the controller removed I heard a zap coming out of the end of the connector in my truck one day. Didnt pay much attention to it until I went to pull my camper the next time and found that the fuse had blown. Apparently, there was a temporary short on the connector. I replaced the fuse and all is well.I have purchased another pigtail adapter just in case I have issues in the future.

In my opinion the Tekonsha brake control products are the best on the market. I purchased the Prodigy P3 as an upgrade to my old Tekonsha explorer unit. The added features that come with this unit, such as the boost feature and electronic read out are exceptional and easy to program. The installation videos on this site are an added bonus to the novice installer. I would recommend this product to anyone interested in quality. I would also like to mention that the service at etrailer.com is exceptional. My product was delivered as promised (on time) and they also followed up with e-mails to ensure that I was completely satisfied with my purchase and service. I plan on additional purchases from this company. Best regards, Dennis C 155034

Its been a year and Im as happy today as I was when I purchased this unit. I have made several long hauls 3k miles or more and many short hauls with my trailer. This controller has worked flawlessly. The ease of adjustment and digital read out of settings is very handy when tweaking your braking power. I have found this necessary when traveling from winter to summer climates and vise versa. I believe in Tekonshas commitment to quality and etrailer.coms commitment to customer satisfaction and recommend them to everyone.

Great brake controller! I installed this unit in my 2016 Ford F250 4x4 in just over 30 minutes. Of course, I spent a little time (about an hour or so) in advance on the etrailer website researching how to install this controller. After watching a few videos and reading a few detailed reviews I was ready to go. I did order a plastic trim removal tool set on [site] prior to this installation. ** NOTE to etrailer: Think about offering a set of trim removal tools for sale to your customers - very important!**. I figured the $25.00 spent on the trim removal tool set would ensure no damage to the interior of my new truck and I was right. This is my second or third brake controller purchased from etrailer. Fast shipping and great products! Thank you!! 347873

I primarily picked this controller based on product reputation and customer reviews. I had picked this controller over it's sister product Tekonsha P2 based on the etrailer tech product review who compared the simplicity of the P3 readout compared to reading letter and period codes on the P2. The 4 buttons on the P3 make it easy to scroll through settings and diagnostics. Need to contact Tekonsha while on the road? ...their contact info is even found in the HELP option (lol). I love the sturdy feel of the bottm half of the controller made of cast metal. It comes with a bracket that holds a quick-release holder for the controller for people that want to move the controller from vehicle-to-vehicle, or a bracket that will solidly attach the controller with 2 screws. Having many videos and photos of other installs available on this website made this a breeze to mount even for a novice like me. I installed it in a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee w/factory installed tow package using the etrailer part #3020-P "Tekonsha Plug-In Wiring Adapter for Electric Brake Controllers - Dodge". It connected flawlessly to both connections in literally seconds. A test light at the rear of the car confirmed that the 7-pin trailer connector brake pin was actuating when the brake pedal was depressed. NOTE: 2001 is the only year in the Jeep WJ series with the factory installed MOPAR connector; the other years in the WJ series, with factory installed tow package, have a single blue wire running to the 7-pin trailer connector. Total install time was under 30 minutes including tool roundup and waiting for my wife to put on her shoes to press the brake pedal to confirm power to the trailer connector. 175399

Bought to replace a P2. Comparing the brake controlling performance, I don't really see any significant difference between the P2 & P3. As for features, the P3 is light years ahead of the P2. The diagnostic features of the P3 are extremely helpful when towing a light or unloaded trailer, where possible issues with the trailer brakes (i.e. shorts or broken wires, etc.) wouldn't be that noticeable. Both of my Tekonsha controllers were 5 star performers. What cost the P3 a star is the bracket options. The P2's bracket was plastic and I never had a problem with it hold the unit and I'm sure the P3's plastic bracket would perform equally well in holding the unit. Unlike the P2 bracket, which I mounted directly under the dash, the P3 uses an additional metal bracket to attach the plastic part to the under dash area. The additional metal bracket causes the unit to stick out almost an additional inch. For those with manual transmissions, the could be an issue while using the clutch pedal. Since I won't be using the P3 in more than 1 vehicle, I used the other metal bracket for permanent installations. It too wasn't without concerns. Using the upper holes of the bracket caused it's side tabs to stick out beyond the bottom of the unit. Hating to find out what these protruding tabs could possibly do to my knee in the case of an accident, I just cut the excess off. Though the P3 is unquestionably the best brake controller available when it comes to performance and features, no matter if your pulling a 10K triple axle or a 5x10 enclosed trailer, it's mounting hardware doesn't seem to be that well thought out. Thus it rates just 4 stars. (I would give it 4 1/2 stars if I could) 403856

It was a fast delivery and I got exactly what I expected. Having said that: It would have been nice if there was more specific mounting hardware for the specific vehicle. I mounted it where the factory OEM version would have went but in order to do so I had to modify the universal bracket that came with the controller and the cubbyhole where the OEM brake control would have been. It is now convenient to operate and read. There is no other good place to mount it on a 2011 Ford F150. One other thing. The unit as I mounted it is not easily removed if one would want to switch it between vehicles. I hope it is better then the OEM version would have been since the mounting would have been much easier for that one. If there is a convenient place to put it using the supplied brackets then I am sure it would have been a piece of cake. 224026


Comments

Yes it has been a about a year since I installed the brake control. It was a little work mounting it but I did a custom mount and put it where the factory unit would have gone. We have only used it actually hauling something a couple times. Have had no problem with it yet. We plan on hauling a couple horses again in a few weeks or so.

My F150 had an OEM 4 pin trailer plug and hitch. The 118242 - 7 pin connector with wiring harness is the ticket. The hardest part of the install was dropping the spare tire. The plugs connect directly to the factory plugs and the harness length is the correct length. The 3035-P brake controller connector harness was just as easy. Plugs right in to the OEM plug next to the ECM connector and the other end into the brake controller. The PK12711U-26 - 7 pin bracket and hardware kit fastens directly the OEM bracket that is on the hitch. My truck had an OEM 4 pin trailer towing set up with the hitch. The OEM hitch had the bracket welded on it to attach the 7 pin mounting bracket to it. These kits make this install very easy and professional looking. If I have one complaint, the hardware kit to attach the 7 pin connector bracket is set up to fasten the bracket directly to the bumper with 2 - self tapping screws provided in the kit. The kit also includes 4 #12 machine screws with toothed washer nuts to attached the 7 pin connector to the bracket. This is fine if your truck hitch doesn't have an attaching bracket welded to it. The kit should included in it 6 #12 machine screws and nuts along with the 2 self tapping screws. Since my OEM hitch actually had a bracket welded to it to attach the 7 pin bracket to it, I had to use two other #12 screws and nuts to attach the 7 pin bracket to the OEM bracket on the hitch. Not a big deal, just a thought. It took me about 2 hours, start to finish to install the 7 pin connector, trailer controller, and add the two relays in the OEM relay/fuse box under the hood. I highly recommend these kits. 322334

Bought & installed a Prodgy 3 in a 2012 Toyota Tundra. Wanted a Custom look so I took the OEM connector & the included Prodgy 3 connector to make my longer required cable. Removing the cubbyhole between the 2 cigarette lighter was an issue - none of the Toyota Servicemen could give any sane advice. But after getting the cubby out, butt jointing - tapping- wrapping the connector cables the hard part began - took 45 mins. Snaking the connector cable from the cubby over into the driver compartment took 3 hours. Not a one man job - that's all I had - me. Finally - success with a multi-bent hanger. Take a look a pictures. 431142

Hi, I got my Item: 90195 and shipping was fast. I was able to get the break controller installed in my 2012 Cadillac Escalade Luxury using the etrailer.com video guide for a 2009 Cadillac Escalade. The install and wiring was the exact same as the video however my wires under the dash or wire bundle did not have a wiring sticker. The color of the wires were the same as in the video. This etrailer video is great and I used it to get my controller installed in about 1.5 hours. My install was trouble free. This weekend I was able to test out the my new P3 90195 controller and get it calibrated with my 29 foot travel trailer this weekend. Used a B2 setting with 8.0 power. The user guide and instructions you get with the controller help you know what settings to use and how to set the power level. This is my second controller as I got a P2 Tekonsha from etrailer about 4-5 years back and installed it in a 2007 trail blazer. This older 2P break controller is still working great. I have been rather happy with the quality of the Tekonsha controllers I have. I have not had to call etrailer for support or install questions but did receive a few emails from them to check in with me to ensure I got my shipment and offer me help. They do a good job supporting and responding to their customers and provide an A+ customer experience. 305014

All good on my end. The controller is working with no issue. Getting ready for our 6th camping trip this year. Thanks for your follow-up.

I have not been able to use this yet as I close on a 5th wheel this week, but install was great! Really just comes down to deciding where you want to put it on your truck. I put mine in factory ash tray so I could see/operate it without obstructed view of steering wheel. It worked out great. Plug and play. Well if you buy the extra pig tale, which definitely do! Very easy to operate/set up. I do wish that they had used actual threaded screws for the connection from (clip that holds controller to bracket screwed to truck). They should have put tiny threaded nuts(fastened) on plastic clip so as not to use the self tapping screw for a mobile adjustment joint. Other than that. No complaints. We shall see how she performs with trailer. 352715

This is one of the few senders I have found with setting that allows for electric to hydraulic brake systems. I converted my older electric drum brakes on a tandem axle trailer to hydraulic disc brakes, using an electric to hydraulic converter pump. Better braking, easier maintenance, but the older style senders appear to not understand the electrical output needs of a conversion set up. This has near infinite adjustability, if you take the time to adjust the applied voltage to your trailer towing load. Set up is easy and reassuring. Must be mounted in the axis of travel, but allows for complete rotation for best view as long as the axis remains in line with travel. Manual braking control is well located and easy to "grab". Great unit ! 122252

This sender continues to work flawlessly ! I love it. The presets are valuable to me as I vary towing load considerably, from empty trailer to maxed out.All in all, I am hoping this is the last brake sender I will ever purchase ! Thanks for checking in !

Controller with the hiring harness installs in literally minutes. Took longer to find the screwdriver. I used the saved trailers feature to set up one with my rig empty, one loaded. With a bright orange screen for the loaded one. Off the scales last week with a load of gravel at 23,400 pounds. Controller works perfect and the truck stops. Having the options and features available on the P3 was worth the extra dollars and a great upgrade. Super easy to use and the customer service here is best ever. Customer for life now. 129767

I had to build a custom bracket for the controller mount since the X is limited in under dash metal but the install went well. The 7 pin trailer harness is a factory Nissan part (plug and play) , but since the receiver does not have the any mounting brackets, I positioned the 7 pin connector up and out of the way of harm by drilling and flush mounting it in the rear bumper. Thanks for carrying products relevant to your customer's needs and having products that work right. I have attached some pics from the finished install. I will be ordering accessories as I need them from your company as you have always been prompt, thorough and very courteous in all of your correspondence. 25007

I purchased this product based on prior reviews. Thanks to all those reviews I purchased the same great experience. I owned a timed control for years and now I have the best proportional control possible. Very easy to wire and install. Videos online made it even easier. No more jerking when coming to a stop. I don't need to manually brake the trailer anymore. Thanks for offering such a great controller. I recommend this controller to everyone. Thanks!! 82847


Comments

This is an excellent product. Im starting my second year of towing and this controller has made my towing experience so much more enjoyable. No jerking to a stop, boost for highway speeds and quick adjustment for in town driving if needed. Stopping is smooth and secure feeling. Not one issue with this controller. Dont hesitate to buy it, its simple to install, simple to use and best unit for your money. You wont regret buy this one. Thanks Etrailer for the online service and all the technical support you offer if needed.

I haven't used it yet, but it seems to be a good product. The owner's manual is a bit vague in spots, but it can be figured out. The installation took about twice the time I had estimated because the design of my Tundra's dash required a custom installation. 147953


Comments

Would you believe that I havent used my controller yet? I got it because my son borrows my Tundra when he tows his 12 trailer out of state. Since I bought the unit, he hasnt gone on a long trip. I can say, however, that when the display of the original unit went bad, the unit was replaced promptly with a new one. The only thing that I would have changed was to make the connecting cable that you offer about 18 longer. That way, the unit can be installed on the right side of the steering column. I had to install my unit on the left side of the steering column, where it was partly in the way of my foot when I set or released the emergency brake. Other than that, I think Ill be happy with the unit.Sincerely,

I was looking to do a replacement for an older Controller and decided to try etrailer.com I found the pricing to be equal to or better than in the store. You can research and compare what is right for you all in one place. Not only did I decide to purchase here but I upgraded to the Tekonsha P3 . I will handle all of my needs and can be custom set on how you drive. Lots of options and very easy to use. Installed the unit myself and absolutely without a doubt wouldnt go back to anything else ! Thank you etrailer.com for helping me to decide and thanks for the fast shipping ! I will be buying more products soon ! This Controller was mounted in a GMC Sierra 1500 crew cab, I am right handed and made sense to put it within reach and easy to glance at. I recommend this product for full control and lots of settings, 425534

These guys were awesome. They took the order online very late Thursday (think 11pm here). I was leaving very early the next Tuesday on a long trip and needed the brake controller and cable. It arrived by priority mail Monday afternoon. Awesome. On the cable and Prodigy 3 brake controller: just great. The cable was truly plug and play. It was long enough and high quality. The brake controller had plenty of control, came with great instructions and totally controlled the trailer brakes in excellent fashion. Very happy with the purchase. The truck and trailer stop in very controlled fashion, very smooth, and the boost is great. PS: I gave the same review in the brake controller cable section. 79517

Great product. I use it to tow my 27' travel trailer and it works great. I love the display. After I installed it, I noticed the unit stayed on after I turned the truck off. After a quick internet search, I learned the unit stays on for about 15 minutes after the truck is shut off. I found this to be accurate on my unit as well. I do wish the screws that attach the dash mount to the cradle were a little more finished. They appear to be standard sheet metal screws and since they are silver and everything else is black, they kind of stick out. But that is just me being picky. If I really wanted I could hop over to ACE and get some better screws. 60075


Comments

It still works well. I have found once in the campground loop, I would have to turn the boost down or off, as it would be too much braking force at slow speeds. It would often lock up the trailer brakes or make for a very rough loop.

First, shipping was crazy fast! I received the item much faster than expected. I decided to let my local Toyota dealer do the installation in my 2015 Tundra. They didn't know that the factory connector had been moved over near the center stack and not by the driver left kick panel. Once I TOLD THEM the installation went quickly. So far, so good. I'll update this once I've had a little more time to test the product. 165850

I am very impressed. Everything was extremely fast and easy - from ordering to installation. No complaints at all. The only thing I can say is that if your truck is already wired for brakes and have $14 to spare, the vehicle specific adapter is well worth the money. After I found the plug on my 2014 Taco (taped behind a bundle of wires, NOT wear the manual says it is...thanks TOYOTA!), it was all plug and play. If you can plug in a floor lamp in your house, you can install this controller. I decided to mount the controller by the cup holders in the center console. When not in use for long periods of time, I unplug it, unscrew the plastic holster, and use the space as normal. Unless you're specifically looking for the plug sitting in the back of the cubby or the metal bracket I leave hanging, you can't even tell there was a mod. I love that I can use the space and love that I don't have to leave the controller sitting out in the extreme temps. Too easy. 146794

Wow! What a great controller! So easy to install and set up. Instructions are great. My electric trailer brakes had never been used, so had to be burnished in. The flexibility of boost and voltage adjustments on the P3, allowed me to quickly change the settings as the brakes wear in and had greater braking action. I highly recommend this controller! 214424

Fairly easy to mount (permanently) on my 2014 Nissan Frontier truck, under center of dash just above console. Easy to read. The 15 minute "shut-down" time for the screen to go blank is no issue. However, with no trailer connected, it does take 2 full minutes of flashing red "NO trailer connection" on the screen EVERY TIME the vehicle is started. Short of the inconvenience of unplugging/plugging back in, I'd think 10 seconds would be enough for the P3 to figure out no trailer is plugged into the vehicle. Will make a slip-cover to go over the face. 126170

Chris, took off the knee panel under the steering column and the top cover over the center console shifter. Used a 90-degree drill attachment for the 2 marked holes. Reached up under radio bezel to hold nuts for the bolts securing the bracket. Have to have the knee panel off anyway to hook up the wires. BTW, my comment about the flashing red NO trailer connection Ive gotten use tojust dont pay any attention to it! Unit works fantastic!

This is my first time using a brake controller, and it couldn't have been easier. I'm using my 2011 Toyota Tundra to tow a 3-place enclosed snowmobile trailer with two axles. Installation and setup was very simple, especially after seeing the video provided on etrailer.com. Where I mounted it is at a slight angle, and the controller seems to work perfectly. When stopping I couldn't even tell the trailer was there. Etrailer.com was very easy to deal with. They shipped the product quickly. And their site contains lots of useful information. I got the recommended plug in wiring adapter, and it helped make the installation simple for anyone. 89558

The Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller is a big step up from my 15 year old controller. I have a new Jayco Jayfeather coming in August. I think the controller along with the new etrailer Curt Class IV hitch is going to be a great interface of trailer and truck. This is a great technology upgrade to my 2002 Ford Excursion 7.3L diesel. Looking forward to many years of service. The etrailer service from online, to order, to delivery was excellent! Definitely a loyal customer now! 398240

I haven't used a lot of other brake controllers but I wanted to buy one that was easy enough to use and intelligent enough to where my girlfriend and/or mother could operate it and not have any sort of stopping issues (both have next to zero experience towing a trailer). From the small amount I've gone out and tested this, it works absolutely awesome and is very easily adjustable. I took my 26' enclosed trailer out with my 3800 lb car inside and the truck stopped almost exactly the same as with no trailer at all. My favorite parts are the fact that I can easily adjust the boost settings by clicking a single button and that it can distinguish between a gradual stop and a panic stop and adjust trailer braking force accordingly within a fraction of a second. Got cut off quite a few times like is normal in Chicago traffic and was able to hit the brakes and KNOW that everything was going to stop when I needed it to. Worth the extra money in my opinion to have a controller that I know is going to work great every time and that anyone in my family could operate correctly if needed. The built-in fault detection system is great also, no guessing if your trailer brakes are hooked up or working correctly, if it detects an issue at any point, it tells you right away. 154701

The Tekonsha P-3 was reasonably easy to install, and works like a champ. I had to spend a bit of extra time fishing wires because my truck didn't come with factory tow package wiring, but even then it wasn't hard, just time-consuming to route the wires where they won't get chafed. The controller comes with a nifty click-in mount, but I just used the U-bracket (also included) because I have no need to move it between vehicles. It's nice to have the choice of how to mount it. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow, even for a non-plug-in installation. It took me a little while to get it adjusted so that the trailer brakes didn't lock up on hard stops, but once I got it there, it's great - no more feeling like my trailer is going to push the truck through the intersection when I stop. It's easy to adjust for different trailer weights. It's almost too easy to adjust, in fact: I'll have to keep an eye on it to make sure I don't accidentally hit the "boost" button, which is designed for heavier trailers - I wish there were some way to disable the boost feature from the menus. Overall I'm delighted with the P-3. I like the text interface instead of cryptic numbers that so many units use, and I love the way it performs. 49045

The Tekonsha Prodigy brake controller is still functioning great. Ive moved it to the second vehicle now and it still works well. Im amazed how much better this controller works than the standard, kind of old school controller with no internal accelerometer. Its almost easy to forget Im towing a travel trailer when using this controller because the braking is so smooth. The Prodigy is well worth the higher cost.

I've had this for 5 years now, on a E350 powerstroke that pulls a 6 ton equipment trailer. The only issue I ever had with it was once it started freaking out and cycling the brakes at a stoplight--etrailer immediately sent a new unit, no questions asked. Later that year the ground wire on the tow vehicle became disconnected, and I suspect that the previous fault was due to the ground intermittently failing. The reason I am finally posting a review is that I recently had to pull the trailer with our F250 diesel, which still has the old Kelsey analog controller it's had for ages. Oh my god. I had gotten so used to how well the Tekonsha worked that I at first thought the analog unit had broken. Locked wheels when empty, and at full load it felt like the truck was doing too much of the braking unless I manually slid the controller to FULL. With the Tekonsha and it's easy-peasy push-buttons and clear graphics, it's a piece of cake to dial the brakes in to PERFECT, each and every time, and make fine adjustments as necessary on the road. Even towing at max capacity, you don't notice the weight behind you. Installation is a breeze, too, and the user interface is intuitive. A great product and worth the extra money. 150296

This new P3 operates much better than my first, entry level controller. I wired it in my 2006 Jeep Commander that is used to tow my 2015 4,700 lb Rockwood Mini Lite trailer. The wiring instructions were clear, as were the initial set-up procedures. The P3 activates the brakes very smoothly without the lurching I had with the prior controller. Living in the Pacific Northwest, I am often driving over mountain passes, and with the P3 I am now confident my trailer brakes will function in a smooth, progressive manner. I would recommend the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 to anyone. 221013

I installed the P3 on my 2011 Chevy Silverado. My Silverado came with the factory tow package and was wired for a trailer break setup. Installation of the P3 was way easier then I thought it would be, especially after watching the Instructional video provided by etrailer on YouTube. Once set up the unit did everything it was suppose to and more! Recommendations: In the installation video the presenter tells us to use electrical tape to wrap the cabling after installing the harness for the unit. Recommend using wire loom or zipties as the glue will separate from the tape over time. It just makes things less messy if you have to work on it again in the future. The only other issue was mounting options. The recommended mounting position on my truck was not useable due to having something else already mounted there. I though of swapping the components however being that I'm six feet tall and how I sit in the truck I determined that my leg would be in the way of operating the unit. Also, I did not want end up hitting the unit and possibly breaking it. I had to modify the supplied mounting brackets to mount the unit more towards the center of the dash. Other then that the unit works great! Defiantly recommend! 223028

It took me longer to choose a mounting location and actually install/hide/connect the wiring than it did to set the unit up. The Prodigy works as advertised, and it works great. Install could not be easier - the ONLY glitch was difficulty in finding the OEM plug (not Etrailer's fault). I will use it on my '02 Dodge Ram 2500, with an 18' trailer ( for my 'toy-hauler') , to haul my ATV's and RZR S1000. The places I go offroading are often in very hilly locations, so a good working trailer brake becomes a MUST-HAVE. The Tekonsha Prodigy P3 solves this, and does it easily. Before buying this unit, I did very exhaustive research, and the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 kept coming up clearly superior in function and features. There are cheaper units on the market, but in this, you DO get what you pay for-and what is peace-of-mind worth, knowing that you really CAN stop when that "oh-s**t" moment hits, and stopping is critical ? I would definitely buy from Etrailer again, and will keep them in mind for any trailer needs in the future. They confirmed my order and got it out the door in a very reasonable time ! Bottom Line: if you buy anything else, anywhere else, then you're only cheating yourself.. 331024

Easily installed on my Silverado, which already had the wiring in place just as in the video. The video was very accurate, clear, and had great details on hardware size etc. A few quick butt splices and it was installed. Harness was a good length and the mounting hardware options included is great. Easy to navigate through screens on the unit and set-up. 104827

The brake controller has been awesome it exceeded my expectations, and the YouTube video demonstrating the install made life easy. Thanks again. The mirrors are a great fit and have a good stock look, however they get a little shakey and it would have been nice if they were a little bit parabolic. Overall though impressed with the purchases.

I had an older Tekonsha 90155 brake controller. It worked ok, but seemed a bit clunky, like I couldn't get it adjust for smooth running. I either was getting my head jerked off or it felt like I didn't have enough breaking going on. I liked all the reviews on the new P3 controller. So I contact etrailer to see if I could just unplug the older controller and plug in a new P3. Just trying to keep the swap out simple and not mess with cabling. I was told I could do that, and true to form it was just that easy. I change where it was mounted on the dash a little so it was a bit more convenient. I haven't pulled the 5th wheel with it yet, so I can't really say just how good it is. I did backup to the trailer and plugged in the brake/light cable and its all working as it should. If the P3 is as good as all the review say I know I will be happy. Going out on the road for the whole summer in a couple weeks so looking forward to some smoother breaking action. As always etrailer customer service is second to none! When it comes to towing or my camper etrailer is my first choice. Good prices and good customer service so you can't go wrong. 387795

Purchased a Tekonsha P3 and had it in hand 3 days later. An etrailer rep sent me emails during the order and shipping process. Nice touch! Video and paper instructions made the installation go smoothly. (Would have been an absolute cinch if the connection wires in my 2008 GMC Canyon hung down just a few inches further.) I am quite pleased with the whole experience. 177867

I have used my brake controller a few times over the past year, including a couple of multi-state journeys, and it has worked great. I discovered that I need to adjust the settings occasionally, but this is pretty simple process. I am very satisfied with my controller.

Awesome selection, great prices, knowledgeable sales people and quality products. After viewing the many different options and narrowing down to a few selections I liked, my AWESOME sales person Kat really helped me decide on the proper trailer braking module and towing hitch I needed for my situation. I simply wanted the best highest quality product on the market for my set-up period, That's what I got without compromise! EVERY part of this process was very easy and couldn't be happier! etrailer.com is "good as it gets" in my book. I'm a tuff critic when it comes to quality parts and knowledgeable service and etrailer.com EXCEEDED my expectations! I recommend everyone I hear inquiring or talking about trailers to etrailer.com. My son purchased a new trailer just after I received my parts from etrailer.com and was so impressed with my experience he called and received the same professional knowledgeable service and parts as I did. I know with confidence I have the BEST trailer components on the market when I'm pulling my double axle enclosed motorcycle trailer to the races. Thank you Kat and etrailer.com ! 359604

Awesome controller! I have not had a chance to use this yet as my trailer is still on order. Installation was simple after finding the correct source for the brake switch wire. The wires on my 2013 Express brake light switch are all low voltage wires. I found the best source was the aux stop light fuse in the fuse box under the hood. I trimmed down an eyelet crimp connector and inserted in the fused side of the socket and pushed the fuse back in place. I didn't want to drill holes in my dash so I utilized an optional ash tray that was stowed away with my spare tire. It pushes into the center drink holder opening in the engine cover. When not in use I can unplug and remove the unit and place it in the glove box. I really like the options for the color of the display. I found the green light matches my instrument lights perfectly and will be less distracting at night time. Looking forward to trying it out. 144549

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...

  • Can I Tow a 5th Wheel Travel Trailer with a Semi Truck or 18-Wheeler
  • The king pin dimensions are the same between fifth wheel trailers and large commercial trailers. Both types of trailers use a standard 2 inch king pin. 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 truck can tow the trailer level. Towing the trailer with the nose too high or too low can cause issues with sway,...

  • 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 Fit and Install Harness for 2017 Chevy Silverado 1500

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • ITBC on 2012 GMC Sierra Malfunctioning when Used on Some Trailers
  • I think you might be on the right track thinking that your ITBC is picking up on ground problems that an aftermarket brake controller would not. In my research, I found posts on several different forums indicating that the ITBCs are indeed very sensitive to any excess resistance. I found a few folks who recommend starting your tow vehicle, THEN plugging the trailer in. Apparently in some cases, this will help. As far as your ITBC being faulty, I can tell you that on the earlier ITBC...

  • What are the Differences Between the Prodigy P3 and Primus IQ Brake Controller
  • There are quite a few differences. The ones you can see easily on the outside are the display and control buttons. The P3, part # 90195, uses a multi-color LCD to provide more information where as the Primis IQ uses basic LED numbers like what you would have on your digital alarm clock. The P3 uses a rotary lever on the underside for a manual over ride where as the Primus uses the older slide design that some people have problems with the slide sticking depending on how they grip and...

  • 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,...

  • Recommended Trailer Wiring For 2017 Toyota Highlander To Tow Camper With 7-Way Connector
  • If you have the factory tow package and have a converter under the dash of your 2017 Highlander the wiring harness I recommend is the Curt T-Connector Vehicle Wiring Harness, part # 56042. This simply plugs into the factory tow package wiring harness located behind the driver side trim panel in the rear cargo area. If you do not have a toe package and converter, I recommend the T-One Vehicle Wiring Harness, part # 118449. The connection points for this are located under the spare tire...

  • Tekonsha P3 Brake Controller, Part # 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...

  • How Does a Brake Controller Install on a 2016 Ram 1500 with a 7-Way
  • To install a brake controller in your 2016 Ram 1500 with a factory 7-way like the Prodigy P3 part # 90195 all you would need is the install harness part # 3024-P. To install the controller you will need to locate the vehicle’s electric brake control harness connector. The harness will be located underneath the dash and right of the steering column, taped to another harness. There will be a 4-pin connector that mates with the one on the adapter. I attached a picture of what it looks like. It's...

  • 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.

  • What is the Proper Gauge Wire for Installation of a Brake Controller and Trailer Brakes
  • I think you are going in the right direction. I would definitely replace the 14 gauge wire going to the trailer brake magnets with 10 gauge wire or larger. Usually larger than 10 gauge is hard to get into the trailer connector though. I would also replace the 12 gauge wire on the vehicle side. You do not need to remove the existing wire just leave it there and use tape or a zip tie to make sure it does not get in the way on either end. Use 10 gauge wire, item # 10-1-1 for this connection...

  • Setting the Power Output and Boost Settings on a Tekonsha P3 Trailer Brake Controller
  • You are correct. When you set up the brake controller for the first time, you set the power to 6 with no boost, drive the vehicle and trailer on a flat surface at 25 mph, then fully apply the manual override. Adjust the power as needed to reach a point just before wheel lock up. When you go up to a heavier load, you will want to adjust the power/boost settings accordingly. Once you have the initial set up complete, you can adjust the boost. To turn the boost on, just press the boost...

  • Installing a 7-Way Trailer Connector on a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 With 4-Way Wiring Harness
  • On my 2004 Dodge Ram (which would be the same as your 2003) the factory trailer connector plug split off from a larger wiring harness on the inboard side of the drivers side frame rail near the rear bumper. There should be a rectangular connector that matches the black connector from the Hopkins Endurance 7-Way Trailer Connector, # HM42190. It may be possible that your truck did not come with the factory trailer wiring for a 7-way trailer connector. That was an option on those trucks from...

  • Location of Brake Controller Plug on a 2016 Toyota Tacoma TRD Sport Off-Road w/Factory Tow Package
  • Great news! I can help you find the brake controller harness on your truck. Since you have a factory tow package on your 2016 Toyota Tacoma you will have a plug for a brake controller in your dash. According to the instructions on the # 3017-P harness for the Proportional Brake Controller P3 # 90195, which I highly recommend, the plug is located above the driver kick panel. I have linked the full set of instructions for the # 3017-P adapter to this page for your convenience. For...

  • Diagnosing Overload Warning, No Brakes, On a Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Brake Controller

This means that there is most likely a short in the brake output wire. The P3 has diagnostic troubleshooting settings, see instructions link.

Now, select troubleshoot and press the menu button. Now, using...

  • 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...

  • Locating Brake Controller Connector on 2005 Nissan Titan
  • So what you are saying is that the plug physically will not insert into the connector, is that right? I spoke with my contact at Tekonsha, who tells me that you might be looking at the wrong connector under the dash. He said that the connector you are looking for is actually pretty difficult to find. It is located above the emergency brake pedal, and is easier to see and access if the emergency brake is engaged. The wiring harness should have a tag taped to it that says Electric...

  • Installing a Brake Controller on a 2001 GMC Sierra 1500 with Factory 7-Way Trailer Connector
  • Since your 2001 GMC Sierra came with a factory installed 7-way trailer connector, GM should have already completed the connections under the hood at the fuse box. However, we have found that GM did not complete the wiring on all trucks, even if they came with the factory trailer wiring. If you plug in your brake controller using a plug-in style wiring harness, like part # 3025-P for Tekonsha brake controllers, and the brake controller does not power on, then the wiring under the hood...

  • 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...
