Proportional Braking

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


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


Power Boost for Heavy-Duty Towing

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


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


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


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

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


Safety Features

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


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


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


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

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

Automatic Leveling and Simple Installation

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


Correct P2 mounting360-Degree P2 mounting

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


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


Installation Accessories

For even easier installation, a vehicle-specific wiring adapter 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

Installation of Tekonsha Brake Controller Adapter

This adapter plugs into the 4-pin connector on your vehicle's built-in brake control wiring harness. The harness is located underneath the dash, to the left of the steering column, taped to another harness near the emergency brake pedal.


To install your electric brake controller you need to connect the wiring of the controller to your vehicle. Certain manufacturers offer pre-wired options, typically known as tow packages, wherein these wires are run for you from the dash to the trailer connector on the back of your vehicle. Often, a brake controller wiring harness is included with your tow package. This harness plugs into a port beneath your dash and connects to the four wires of the brake controller. If, however, you have a brake controller with a plug in place of the four loose wires, you can use the Tekonsha adapter.


This adapter requires no hardwiring. It is designed to plug directly into your electric brake controller for the simplest installation possible. Because there are no wires to connect, installation is not permanent. You can unplug and remove your brake controller at any time and securely stow it away.

Video Transcript for Trailer Brake Controller Installation - 2003 Honda Pilot

Today on this 2003 Honda Pilot we're going to install part number 90885. This is Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Trailer Brake Controller. We'll also be using part number ETBC7, Universal Installation Kit for Trailer Brake Controllers, and a bracket for our 7-pole connector which will be part number 18140, the Universal Mounting Bracket. First thing we're going to do is go ahead and get our vehicle ready. Our ETBC7 kit comes with a 7-pole connector and the brackets and all the hardware necessary for installation. However, this is designed to go only to a regular 4-pole flat. It really won't work on this type of specialized connector.

So honestly, we're just going to cut this thing off. We'll cut our 4-pole off as well and just use some extra butt connectors that don't come with the kit to make our connection. The butt connectors we'll be using is part number DW05714. Let's go ahead and free up our wires. We'll go ahead and cut off our connector here. Let's split our wires up and make them easier to work with.

We'll go ahead and prepare our wires and put our butt connectors on. Typically you'd want to test these wires to verify their function. We actually already did that so we know they work, and also we got lucky on this wire harness that they're actually labelled what they do as well. This last wire is our ground. Our 7-pole connector actually has a bigger ground that works with it so we don't even need this wire.

Let's go ahead and put our butt connectors on. We'll cut off our excess for that old ground wire. Let's leave those alone for now. Let's go ahead and mount our 7-pole bracket to our hitch using our short universal bracket. Now we'll go ahead and install our bracket. We'll pull it up to the bottom of the hitch and take the clamp that comes with bracket and run it around back into itself.

Push your screw back down into place. We'll go ahead and take the plaque and set it where we want it. In this case we actually want it hanging down towards the ground just a little bit. Next we'll go ahead and install our 7-pole bracket. We'll connect it by using the hardware that comes with the short bracket kit. Our bracket's going to be really close to our hitch here so we're actually just going to bend the bracket out a little bit to give us room for our wires that we'll angle up between the bumper and the hitch. We're almost ready to take our 7-pole connector and install it on our bracket. Before we do that we'll go ahead and wrap up our wires to keep them under control while we work with them. While we're at we'll go ahead and snip off our 4-pole end here. Let's go ahead and take our wires and run them through. Then we can go ahead and install it into our bracket. We'll go ahead and hold our 7-pole up to our bracket and run the machine screws that come with the kit in it. The screw is loosely installed, we'll go ahead and tighten them down. The connector ended up at a little of an odd angle but we did this to keep it as even with the hitch as possible. Let's go ahead and get those 3 wires for our 4-pole connector ready and make our connections. We'll start off with our wire label for taillight circuit. We'll go ahead and connect that to our brown wire. Next step will be our left turn signal which will go to yellow. The last one will go to green for our right turn signal. We'll go ahead and use some tape to help protect our connections here. Our next 2 wires will be our purple and our white wire. Our white wire with the ring terminal will go to ground. So we'll just go ahead and run that to the body of the vehicle. Our purple wire is typically used for auxiliary circuit, such as reverse lights or if you want a separate power source for something else. In this case it's not going to be used so we'll go ahead and bundle it up with the other wires and keep it safe and out of the way. Now we'll find a place for our white wire and ground it. We're going to take our white wire and we'll go ahead and ground it right here underneath the vehicle. We'll go ahead and use a large self-tapping screw that comes with the ETBC7 kit. We'll go ahead and drill it out first and then add our wire. Now we'll go ahead and add our grey cable to these 2 wires here. Inside here will be a black and white wire. We'll go ahead and connect the black to black and white to blue. Our black wire will be a 12-volt power supply, so if anything needs to be charged on a trailer it'll have power. Our blue wire will be our output from the brake controller that we're installing. Let's go ahead and get these wires ready. We'll go ahead and strip the ends back a little bit and we'll go ahead and click them up to our pre-installed butt connectors. Let's go ahead and take a moment to secure our wires. Then we'll go ahead and take a moment and secure these wires that we just added and we'll go ahead and hide them up behind the hitch. We're using longer zip-ties than what comes with the kit. It's always a good idea to get extra zip-ties when securing your wires. Now we'll go ahead and cut off the tails. Now at this point we can go ahead and take our cable and run it up towards our power supply. When we run our wire up there we'll make sure we stay away from anything moving like suspension components or anything hot like the exhaust. When we get to the front of the vehicle you also want to stay away from the steering components as well. We'll go ahead and show you how we ran our wire. To start off we ran it along the frame rail here and we used a couple of loom clamps, part number A0500. We ran it over the rear suspension and over some lines we used another loom clamp right here next to the gas tank. Then we just ran it through some preexisting brackets and used the zip-ties to help hold it in place. We ran it through this guard right here so the guard's doing the work for us, we cut by our lines here. We have it temporarily over our sway bar right here. We'll go ahead and drop the line from the top down to go ahead and pull this wire up towards the top. To pull our wire from the bottom we're going to use an old piece of airline tubing. This could also be any piece of wire that can hold a shape as you work it down to the bottom. We'll go into the bottom of the vehicle and then we'll go ahead and attach it and pull it back up. We've got our wire pulled out and then we'll go ahead and route it to where we're going to get power. In this case we're going to the positive side of the battery. You want to put a little bit of extra wire into, one, going to our circuit breaker that we're going to install for our black wire, and plus we need a little bit more length on our white wire so we can run it to the inside of the vehicle. The rest of our wire we cut off will be used for the run that'll go between the brake controller and back up to the battery. We'll just set that to the side for now. Let's take a moment to go ahead and zip-tie it to help pull it up and keep it secure. Let's go ahead and split our sheath back and get access to our wires. Take our white wire and we're just going to push it off to the side for now. Now we'll go ahead and work with our black wire. Our black wire has got to run through a 40-amp circuit breaker. We'll go ahead and take the circuit breaker and install it right here using the self-tapping screws that come with the kit. Let's go ahead and attach our wire to our circuit breaker. We'll cut the wire in half and add a ring terminal on each side. Now I'll go ahead and hook it up to our circuit breaker. The end that goes to our battery will always go to the copper side. Our side that goes out to our accessory, in this case a 7-pole connector, will goes to this post. Our second post is kind of obscured by the plastic here in an effort to keep the circuit breaker in a flat spot of steel so let's go ahead and just make a notch around it. We'll be using a rotary tool to make our notch. We'll go ahead and add our wire to this post now. We'll go ahead and tighten down our connection using a 3/8" steel bolt socket. Now we'll trace our wire up and towards our battery. Instead of routing our wire around the air box we're actually going to run it underneath here into our battery. We'll go ahead and put our ring terminal in our wire to make our connection right here but we won't actually connect it yet. That'll be one of the last things we do. We'll just leave that there for now and we'll go ahead and work with our white wire next. We'll run this wire to the inside of the vehicle and eventually back to the blue colored wire going through our brake controller. Our location that we're going to run our wires through will be through this grommet right here. I'm pushing it right now with the white wire. We'll go ahead and make a slit in the grommet so we can push our wires through. We're going to try and stay on the outside of the edge as best as possible so we don't damage anything else but the grommet. We'll go ahead and route our wire over to it and we'll go ahead and push through. We'll go ahead and pull our slack for our brake wire here. While we're at it we'll go ahead and get that scrap piece of wire that was left over and we'll go ahead and run that through as well. Now we have 3 wires in here right now, 2 wires in the sheath and our lone white wire. We'll go ahead and leave these alone for now. Let's go back underneath the hood and add 1 more circuit breaker for our brake controller. We'll also get our ground ready to work with as well. We'll be adding a 20-amp circuit breaker. Depending on the type of trailer and inaudible 12:51 you need, you may need a heavier circuit breaker. In this case we just need a 20-amp. We'll make just a slight notch to make room for our hardware here as well. Let's go ahead and route our wire to where we want it, to our circuit breakers. Then we'll go ahead and strip back the sheath for this part as well. Just like before, power going to our accessory will go to our silver post and power from our battery will go to the copper post. Let's go ahead and get our white wire out of the way and we'll go ahead and add ring terminals to our black wire. In our other half we'll get the other small ring terminal and then a large ring terminal on the other side. Let's go ahead and tighten up the hardware on our circuit breakers for our wires. Now our white wire will be ground. Let's go ahead and route that towards our battery. Here I think we'll actually use the inaudible 15:01 going to the battery. So we'll go ahead and cut our wire's length and add another large ring terminal. I like to leave the connections as the last thing we do so let's go back underneath the dashboard. We'll go ahead and hook up our wires going into our brake controller. Now we can go ahead and start working with the brake controller. This is the wire harness that comes with the brake controller. To help things under control we'll go ahead and use some of the little material that comes with the ETBC7 kit. We'll go ahead and wrap that around our wires. We'll leave that alone for now. Let's get our other wires ready. We'll go ahead and shorten up our wires now because we don't really need all that length and we'll go ahead and remove the sheath on the grey cable. All right, we'll go ahead and strip back our wires and we'll add the butt connectors. We use the large yellow butt connectors. Then we'll hook up what we can to our brake controller wire harness. On our brake controller wire harness we're not going to use the red for now. That'll hook up somewhere else. Let's just get that out of our way and we'll go ahead and hook up our wires. Our lone white wire, we'll go ahead and connect that back to our blue wire. So it was blue from the 7-pole connector, white and then back to blue for our brake controller. For our remaining 2 wires it'll be color for color. Our last wire will be a small red wire. That's going to go to our brake light switch. So we need to find the cold 17:15 side of our brake switch, which means as soon as we hit the pedal the brakes come on. We need to find that wire. We're going to use a different tester that comes with kit to make things a little easier to demonstrate what's going on. When we hit the brake pedal that's the wire we want. In this case it looks like white with a black stripe and silver bands. To make our connection to it we'll use a quick splice connector that comes with the brake controller install kit. We'll slide our connector over to the wire we're going to use then we'll slide our red wire next to it. Next to each other we'll go ahead and squeeze down a pair of pliers in the middle clip in the middle that'll make the connection. We'll just go ahead and mount the pocket for our brake controller. The kit comes with a heat metal screw that we'll use to attach it to the dashboard. When you mount the pocket this is up to personal preference. Typically it's going to be on the right hand side and up and out of the way. When we're mounting the pocket we want to make sure that it's in a straight as a line as possible with the vehicle so the brake controller will be the same way. We've got 1 screw holding it. We'll go ahead and add the second screw. We'll go ahead and run our wire through our pocket and it'll plug into the back of our brake controller. We'll pop it back into place and then we'll go ahead and zip-tie our wire to keep it out of the way. We're done underneath the dash. We'll go ahead and hook up our wires to our battery and our ground. Let's go hook up our 2 black wires to the positive side of the battery. Now let's go hook up our ground. Everything's installed. Let's go ahead and check out the brake controller. I see we have 2 dots on it so that's a good sign. One shows the boost button is in use and the other one shows we have power going to the brake controller. You can go ahead and scroll through the boost buttons, "B1, b2, b3, no boost." We'll leave it at boost 1 for now. Now we'll hit the manual override. You can see it says, "Nc," that means no connection for our trailer. We'll go ahead and hook up our trailer now and see what it does. Now when I plug the trailer in we'll have a c showing a connection. We'll hit the manual override. See how it scrolls through the power. Total power can be adjusted by this knob right here from full power down to nothing. We'll go ahead and hit the brake pedal and we should see a small amount of numbers show up, so we know we have brake signal as well. It looks like everything's working. With that that'll finish it for our install part number 90885, the Tekonsha Project P2 brake controller and our ETBC7 kit on our 2003 Honda Pilot. .

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

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

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

Perfect interface between the controller and the factory wiring. I'd have given it 5 stars if it were a wee bit longer - say 8 more inches. On my 2012 Pilot, I mounted the controller in the bin right below the radio because it just seemed in the way of my legs in the more normal position above the accelerator on the dash. The cable wasn't quite long enough for that and I ended up fabbing my own and put this one in the box for the next time. 434856

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

The bracket was already on the Vehicle, its in between the light switch and the parking brake release lever where OEM controller would be if equipped , it requires a little modification to fit.

Honda Ridgeline

Just what the doctor ordered for the customers Honda Ridgeline. Unbilivably, though the truck was completely wired from under the dash from the factory since it was purchased new with the trailer package, the dealership was oblivious to the fact that a brake controller was needed and were dumbfounded on where to get one, or where the connector was located in order to install it. Found the controler on etrailer.com and the connector location on utube. 228914

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

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

In early 2019, Tekonsha updated the Prodigy P2 brake controller with an auto-dimming feature that will automatically reduce the intensity of the display lighting when the light levels in the vehicle interior get low.

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

2014 Honda Ridgeline

Just bought the Tekonsha Primus IQ and installed it. Haven't used it yet, as I pick up my first travel trailer next week. Product is solid, packaged with ample, clear instructions, wiring and mounting hardware. Lower dash on my Honda Ridgeline slopes steeply so I fashioned an L-bracket from 14 ga. steel bar and secured to side of center stack (see photo). Nice and level. Wiring to my harness was a bear, just because of where my connector was buried; needed the YouTube videos. Price was much lower from etrailer than any RV dealer around here. Arrived in less than a week. Think I made a smart choice. If it works as advertised it will get a fifth star. 375303

2017 Honda Ridgeline

Hello, as requested I have attached some pics of the brake controller after installation on my 2017 Honda Ridgeline. I have a lease vehicle so I did not want to drill any holes in the vehicle to mount or run wires. So what I did was install the mount bracket upside down and place a strong commercial velcro patch to the brake controller mount and to the tray area that it is sitting on. Then I slipped the wire harness between the crack in the IP and the lower console and tucked it up behind the dash so it could not be seen. The velcro holds the brake controller quite secure. This way I can remove the controller and reuse in my next vehicle without leaving any permanent marks or holes to this one. Anyway , just thought I would share… As far as the controller. I am very happy with its operation and functions. 523633

Honda Ridgeline

We have a Honda Ridgeline and this part plugged into the factory plug that was under the dash by the emergency brake petal switch. It was difficult to get to, but success was achieved. This was needed for our camper trailer. This made it easy, no hard wiring, just ordered the part for the Ridgeline and then plug and go. The brake controller plugged into the other end and now I am a happy camper. It worked, I blew a fuse while installing, must have touched something? No problem though, replaced it and was all was good. 202033

2017 Honda Ridgeline

I gave this a 4 star just because I haven't been able to hook up the trailer yet. The Primus IQ brake controller light is on so I'm assuming it will be fine. The harness arrived in good time. I was able to hook it up in my 2017 Honda Ridgeline in about 20 minutes. The longest part was finding the connection! It was above and left of the parking brake. A headlamp really helped. It's very tight in there so I could use only one hand and did a lot of it by feel. In the picture you need to follow the red wire to the connection. The brake controller I mounted on the plastic in front of my right knee. 321040

Update - Everything worked fine. We went on several trips with our trailer and no problems at all.

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


Comments

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

Great Brake Controller, used it with the Universal Install Kit for Brake Controllers and No-Drill Mount Bracket, Short - 18140. It only took me 2.5hrs to have it fully installed in my Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 2013. Videos were great. Also having some 1/4in water tubing helped for phishing wire thru frame. Wish I had watched the video a couple of times before buying and also purchased the extra wire to go from the battery to the brake controller, but had extra wire from another project that worked. This brake controller works great as we tow a <3500lbs Travel Trailer with our Jeep. Comes with a great card that helps with settings, keep it in the glove box for future reference. 243826

This is the second Prodigy P2 controller I have purchased. I have one on my smaller Audi SUV for 15 months. After 5000 miles trailering it has worked perfectly. Easy to proportionally adjust for our off road trailer when 4 wheeling and descending steep mountain grades. This second one is going on a new larger SUV. The dealership did the installation. 439878


Comments

I have driven my off road trailer over 10K miles in the past year. The brake controller has worked flawlessly, even in more rugged terrain as it is easy to manually calibrate the settings. It was installed on my off road equipped Q7 by my Audi dealer. This is my second Tekonsha. Good product.

2016 Honda Pilot

Just bought a Prodigy 3 and on my first trip with our light weight [email protected] clamshell with electric brakes pulled with a 2016 Honda Pilot...very satisfied. I installed a factory hitch and harness and the cable etrailor provided snapped right in. The trailer is under 2,000 lbs so I opted to bet the boost to zero. So far so good. The only issue is it seems to apply the brakes more firmly when going over rough pavement, otherwise the braking action is very smooth. I didn't want to mount the controller bracket permanently so I bent an angle plate into a U shape and pop riveted it so it would hang in the lower trim panel. 407957

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

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


Comments

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

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

I didn’t have a good location that was reachable while driving so I mounted the controller on top of the dash. I leveled the bracket with a spacer and ran the harness by an access panel. I used about 70’ of the duplex wire due to running the cable to front and then back to the house batteries inside the coach. The access panel made it easy to make the connections and run the wires through the firewall. I mounted the 40 AMP and 30 AMP circuit breakers up front in the main fuse panel box. I drilled a hole through the box and firewall to run the wires from the brake controller to the breaker and to the blue wire for the tow connection at the back of the coach. I ran the battery connections to my house batteries up front instead of using the engine batteries in the back. I found the brake connection wire under the coach in front directly below the brake pedal. I mounted the converter in a beam in the back with lots of zip ties 9444


Comments

For ford ranger 2010 and perhaps other years:Be aware that the video contains the wrong instruction for the 2010 ranger. In wiring the brake light wire, the switch shown being tapped into gives reverse braking sensing, that is, it is 12 when the brake is not applied, but 0v when it is. I found elsewhere that the correct wire is the 2nd connection on the 5 pin plug that rides on the brake itself.This is no comment on the original video, which was excellent, and referred to the 2011 ranger model.

Wire colors can and do change often. We offer the colors that we find in our videos as a starting point, but even if you have a 2011, it is best to double check and make sure to positively identify the wire color first.

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

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

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

Installed this in my 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport. I thought that I would add some input on installation that would help others. I found a way to route the power distribution wires in the frame of the Jeep that did not require the use of a fish tape. If you look at the frame just behind the rear tire you will see a hole in the face of the frame. Start pushing the wire bundle foreword. It will rise up and over the U shaped frame portion of the rear axle and then down along the passenger compartment area. About there, you will be running out of pushing stiffness. Look for the wire bundle to appear at a similar hole in the frame in that area. Grab it a and pull out approximately 4 feet and then push it right back in the same hole going foreword. This time you will look for the wire bundle to appear at again a similar hole just foreword of the driver compartment. Now is the time to grab it and start heading up to the engine compartment outside the frame. Do the same procedure for the wire going aft for the plug end of the installation. For the wires going through the firewall, Jeep has conveniently added a nice foam lined hole to route wires through. You will see this hole position in the attached photo with a green wire coming through. The plastic cover around the steering column pulls down from the top and hinges at the bottom. Remove the metal plate with two bolts to get to the brake switch. Twist and pull the brake switch out foreword and go for the brown stripped wire as your brake circuit. Do order the LONG frame bracket adapter for the switch plug at the rear. To drill the steel for the supplied plug bracket just takes too long. Now that you have it installed you will notice that the power will remain on the unit after you turn the key off. Don't sweat this as it will not stay on long. I doubt a few milliamps draw is going to kill your battery! 231113

I installed the brake controller a week or two ago in my 2013 GMC Sierra 1500. I had one just like it in an older Duramax that the previous owner installed--I went with the same product. I had the chance to use it this afternoon to pull a few tons of #57 stone. Trailer plus load I figure about 6000 pounds behind the truck. Pictures are attached. This is the first 1/2 ton truck I've owned in nearly 10 years and worries how it would do with heavier loads. This controller made a world of difference and really maximized the use of my truck. Great product and I highly recommend it to anyone needing a good controller. 137307

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

Used in conjunction with harness kit for my 2002 tundra, this year has no provisions for towing trailer with electric brakes. The controler itself has proven itself nicely, with no issues with installation or use, adjust easily. The mounting location I chose may have some slight interference issues with legs on taller people, but I have not had any @ 5'11". The truck is a midsized so room is more limited. I'm towing a tandem 14' trialer with 4 seat RZR, tracking and stopping is perfect, even under hard breaking. 398903

Purchased this unit to go along with my install kit on my 2012 Odyssey. Wanted something small and versatile and this fit the bill. Easy to install, the video helped, but I chose to remove the coin pocket and modify it to fit the controller. All I had to do was remove some of the extra plastic and voila!, the controller slid right in. Now I can remove the controller and still use the pocket when not towing. When I need it, I just pull out the pocket, and hook in the unit. I've included some pics, super easy to modify, takes 10min. 419272

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

very nice controller, very smooth and you don't have to mount it flat!! e trailer is the best company i ever worked with. they have pics, video, email support(exellent) and just flat out make it easy for you to do it yourself instead of paying some dirt bag $300 to install at your local trailer shop. i also installed kit #ETBC7 and once agian it was awesome. COMPLETE with DETAILED directions. i'm not a mechanic or hack employee at local trailer shop....BUT dealing with etrailer and there parts made my install very easy and CLEAN!!! 117534

I’ve used this brake control for about a year, installed on a 2014 Subaru Outback. I tow an 18’ Aliner PUP, and it has performed flawlessly. I grappled with all the different options, but landed on this one and I have no regrets. It’s very easy to adjust the braking power and boost. It’s also very obvious when your trailer isn’t connected (“nc” on the screen for “not connected”). Lastly, the brake application is smooth and effective. My only complaint is that the installation was very time consuming, but this would be the case for any brake controller, so I can’t deduct for that aspect. In general, this was definitely a good purchase. 702750

the product was easy to mount with heavy duty hook and latch so I can remove when it is not needed. the design is great as we tow various trailers and need to be able adjust for each one. Product matches it description. the on line video for installation are very helpful. 701690

Fitment was as advertised. Plug and play for my 2003 GMC Sierra with factory towing package. Harness and controller install was quick and easy. Thanks etrailer 704878
