    I am going to hook up a Prodigy P2 break controller to my truck. I found two plugs under the steering wheel, both have 4 prongs. One is smaller than the other. Which one is used for the break control? I need to order a harness.
    The truck is a 2010 Ram 2500

    All the tekonsha controls use the same plug.

    it should be located over by the parking brake.
    Here is a pic of the pig tail for a tekonsha.

    Thanks SnoFarmer. I did see that harness. I also see both of those plugs being used for a OEM break controller. Not sure why OEM uses two, and aftermarket uses only one.

    Funny you said that.


    I kept imagining some really big older lady standing over the top of me counting the minutes for me to finish my cup of tea and a muffin, and that it doesn't go any longer than my 15 minute break would allow....:laughing:

    I'm not certain about 2010 Ram's but my 99 ram had a white rectangle shaped factory plug under the dash, just like the one in Snow Farmer's pics.

    There is two plugs there, I know the OEM uses both. I found the harness online, but it hooks up to one of them. Just curious what the other one does. Making a 650 mile trip next week, want to make sure it will work.

    Its cool. :drinkup::drinkup::

    Make sure you think long and hard on your next ride, even more so if you're going with a diesel!!

    Of coarse they couldnt make it easier like they used to.. Was simple for me on my 02.. Plug had a tag taped around it and said brake controller.. If your worried about it working hook it up and run a test light on your trailer connector and have someone run the manual overide and see if you get power out there..
