Product Details

Universal Prodigy™ Electronic Proportional Brake Control by Tekonsha®. Unlike timed brake controls that deliver the same power under all braking conditions, Brake Controls use Proportional Technology that senses the type of braking event, and applies appropriate power to the trailer brakes.


Package Type: Boxed


  • Applies trailer brakes
  • Shortens stopping resistance
  • Required in most states, depending on trailer weight
  • Manual override
  • Adjustable for amount of trailer braking
  • Plug and Play wiring in most newer tow vehicles
  • Adapter wiring harness available for use with vehicles that don't have preinstalled wiring, will require splicing to vehicle harness

State laws vary: you may very well legally tow a trailer weighing as much as 10,000 lbs without trailer brakes in some states. Frankly, that's a terrible idea, regardless of the legality. Other states have laws that require brakes on a trailer weighing only 1,000 lbs. If your trailer has electric brakes installed, the smartest, safest path is to make them operational. For that, you'll need a trailer brake controller. This black box either gradually applies the trailer brakes as you slow down, or actually senses the deceleration rate and proportionally increases the braking action. On most modern tow-rated vehicles, it's an easy wiring job, calling for nothing more than plugging into the wiring harness underdash and near the hitch.

Play safe, and avoid equipment tickets and, oh yeah, accidents, by installing a brake control system.

Intelligent trailer braking is the key to the success of the Tekonsha® family of braking products. Established in 1964, Tekonsha technology can be found in some of North America's leading vehicle manufacturers… a testimony to its superior performance history when it comes to stopping trailers. Smooth, predictable stopping at all speeds has made Tekonsha’s Prodigy®, Primus® and Voyager® trailer brake controls "best of class" and the most popular available today. As the industry leader in electric trailer brake controls and breakaway systems remember… "No matter what you are towing, Tekonsha can help you stop it".

I purchased this to use in my 2015 4Runner. I works flawlessly. Installation was a snap. I also purchased the 4Runner specific Tekonsha® 3040 2-Plug Brake Control Wiring Adapter. The hardest past of this was deciding where to mount the Controller. I decided on screwing it (screws provided) to the bottom of the dash nearly under the steering column. There is a bit of a return in the molder plastic that's about 3/4" wide. I mounted the "U" shaped bracket (included) at that point and installed the controller. I can easily reach the manual lever if need be. I can't easily see the controller's digital readout however, once set, there's no need. I was concerned I would hit it with my foot getting in and out but not once have I even been careful and have never bumped it in that location. Set up was easy with clear instructions.

Easy instal. Do not buy an extra bracket, it comes with one. Easy to calibrate. Good looking product.
