okay, need a little help!


Was speaking to Jayzce from the board yesterday and he's had his car parked out for a week and the battery is now drained (car wont start)


He tried to turn the lightbar on and all the modules lit up. Although weakly, no surprise there.


However, when he plugged the lightbar into his 2010 expedition with a fresh battery, the modules lit up as bright as they should but 1 module is out.


Has anyone experienced this?? any help is greatly appreciated!


Cliffs:


all modules on lightbar work dimly on f150 with almost flat battery


lightbar lights up as bright as it should but 1 module is out on expedition with fresh battery

module somehow came unplugged? That's happened on my Responder minibar once during a blizzard.

It wouldnt work dimmly if the module had come un plugged.


Maybe a voltage regulation issue?

I'd say, test the module out of the bar directly, steady burn with 12v. That'll help determine if it's a module problem or a flasher problem. Also, move 2 modules around, that too would confirm a flasher problem or not.

thanks for posting Falcon9


i have tried unplugging the other con3 modules that are working and tried plugging it's source to the one dead module but seems that nothing has changed still nothing on them. i will then again try plugging it on the other side con3 power source. I'm just wondering how it died since I'm not using the truck for a week and the light bar is just on my roof.


worse case would be a dead module i guess I'd have to look for a new replacement for it. anybody knows where i can get a good deal on those modules? now i'm thinking of getting two white con3 for my fronts and two white linear modules for the rear corners (what do you think?) :mrgreen: and I'll be plugging LR11 alley lights on my mini justice.

The Justice hasn't been out for 5 years. Send it to Whelen under warranty.

Just sent the entire bar in, they will fix or replace it.
