so I have a federal signal vector bar that's having some issues. its a vector that has the two smart pods as takedowns and alleys. so when I turn it on rear flash the two smart pods oscallate to the rear. when I turn the bar off one of the smart pods on the driver side stays on, the light stays on and it still oscallates. not supposed to do that. how can I fix this. after I turn the lights off and the one flashes by its self if I turn takedowns on it will face front like its supposed to but once I turn the takedowns off that same one goes back to flashing in the rear all by its self. please help with this issue/

He'd tell us, but then have to kill us. All of us. It could be tedious.

hahah....no I would not kill you guys then next time I have a problem no one would help...

so on the board there are the dip switches that change what the smart pods do. on B side the last two switches are for the td/ work light switch and the last one well is says 1/2, no clue what that means, but anyways I had the 1/2 switch to on. so I am thinking there is other wire in there that when supplied with power you could only activate one rear flashing light, which I guess would be cool on some situation where you did not need a lot of lighting. I am not a fan of the vector bars at all. but sheriff loves them so I have to deal with it lol...

If I remember that option is just to control the pod on it's own. It's not the first time that has been reported here either.
