Brake controller

My Tekonsha Prodigy is maybe 10-12 years old. Recently when towing, the numbers on the controller did not go from 60 or so down to "c". Normally when I let off the brake, it goes to c almost immediately. Was afraid my brakes were staying locked so I pulled over and played with the connection at back of truck. Finally they went to c. Brakes did not seem to be hot. Started doing it over and over after I applied the brake . After verifying the brakes were not hot, I tried to ignore it. Finally, realized that if I ignored it for about 20-30 seconds, it went to c all by itself. Do I need a new controller? Oh yes, the brakes on the trailer seemed to work normally.

Maybe, but check the connection at the brake pedal and the ground under the dash to be sure they are tight and corrosion free. wiggle the plug on the back of the cobtroller.
If that's all good, just remember that a new Tekonsha would be plug and play.
Also Call Tekonsha, they may have an answer and maybe even some assistance for the replacement.

My cousin had a similar problem, as it turns out, corrosion was at fault.
