I would recommend you start over with your Tekonsha Prodigy P2 Brake Controller # 90885 and go through the setup process again so that it will be properly setup.

First step is to connect your trailer to your tow vehicle. Next, with the engine running, hold the manual lever full to the left and set the power knob to indicate approximately 6.0.

Now you will want to drive your tow vehicle and trailer on a dry, level, paved surface and fully apply the manual lever. If the trailer tires lock up turn down the adjustment knob. You will want to repeat the previous step until you set the brakes at a point that is right before tire lock-up. Finally, you will want to use the brake pedal to make a few low-speed stops to check the power level.

I attached installation instructions for this product and an FAQ article on brake controllers for you to check out also.
