Thanks in advance for any help offered.

black with dark green tracer is ground
white is brake lamp switch output
yellow with red tracer is fused b(+)
dark green is trailer tow brake b(+)

Hope this helps. If the controller you have describes what their wires are for you may be able to match them up.

Why not get the integrated brake controller? The 2012s use a different controller, it's supposed to be more capable than the controller used in 2010s and 2011s.

The only label on the controller harness is letters per wires. Does this mean anything?

Just trying to reuse what I have rather than spend more money.

trayg, isn't there a Tekonsha plug-in harness that adapts your Prodigy to the Dodge pickup that avoids having to bother with wire color matching?
