I recieved my new Prodigy P3 the other day and I went ahead and started to installing it. While installing the Prodigy's wiring harness onto the vehicle specific harness I noticed some wires that were either cut or looked like they were added by one of the previous owners. As I looked at them more it seems to me that one of the previous owners had wired up a brake controller by way of these wires that I found versus using a vehicle specific harness and just plugging it in. So can anyone confirm my theory or give me any other possibilities?

In the first picture I found this plug just hanging in behind the dash with one of its wires cut. In the second picture it looks like the other side of that wire hanging out there cut off. Now should I reattatch these two wires? What is that plug supposed to be plugged into? If it doesn't get plugged in anywhere then what is it for?





The red (w/male spade connector), white, and black wires seem to be add? Does this seem logical?

Thanks,
Mike

Hank,

It's not that the controller doesn't work. Its that I don't like unknown wires just hanging out in my vehicles. Especially that plug that I have no idea what its for. As far as I know everything in the truck works, but it would just be nice to know what it is. Thats all.

Thanks,
Mike

Mike,
Went out and looked under my dash. The only thing I saw that resembled your plug with the cut wire was the plug in my brake controller which I broke loose from under the dash while looking! :doh:

I'd trace that red one to it's other end and see where it goes (hot wire for something I bet). My truck has had after market stereos, under-dash lights, XM radio, speakers, GPS, etc. just to name a few. Guess I'm just used to abandoned wires. Hope you get it figured out to your satisfaction. Have a good evening. :nod:

If everything works, i'd say nothing to worry about too. We all know that when we go to sell a vehicle, we aren't as meticulus(sp?) uninstalling it as we are installing it. It's easier to just cut them and take the unit, whatever it is.

Although I do understand wanting to know everything about the truck...Like Hank said, I would trace the wire to its origon, and go from there, anything else is just a guess.

later
