Strobe Lights

Ok everyones going to be saying use the search button, which I have but cant seem to find all the info.

Number 1 - Can I use the wires that are for my traction control? (since I do not have Traction Control and their is two wires sitting right there. (when I take off the center vent theres two wires hooked to the plastic)

Number 2 - if yes for number 1, is one of those postive and one of those negative wires?

Number 3 - I want to put these in my grill. Do you think they will look good? There is a total of 4 strobes. Is that a smart or not a smart idea? Is there a place to mount them? How do I run the wires into my car ?

lets see what they look like first of all... I would almost always recommend that you put the strobe inside the headlight housing itself (im assuming these are a show item only). The reflective chrome inside the lense magnifys the strobes effects. In the grill it would just look cheesy. I would also recommend that you run your own wires for this install. It's not that difficult to run a couple lengths of wire through the firewall and around the engine bay, I've done it a few times myself.

strobes

i have two green strobes in my grill, i took the front bumber off and mounted them in side the front bumber support thingy, and last night i was showing my buddys brother, when a cop drives by slams on his brakes and flips on his lights. long story short its illegal to have them even hooked up. but the underglows are ok as long as you dont have them on while you drive. so be careful

Where the hell are you in Illinois? It's not illegal to have them hooked up. It is illegal if your driving with them on just like the underglows. Was it a sherrif or a trooper? Probably just needs to meet his quota. What else is new with Illinois cops.

I thought about that Gaze, However I dont want to risk messing up my headlights and fog lights which is why I bought the strobes to install in the headlights and foglights. Here is a picture of the ones I got. They are flat on the botton so they would sit somwhere easily.

Internal or External Mounting
Install onto an 12 Volt Power Supply
Illumination of Bright Strobe

Design
New side strobe design with four bright Lights
Low heat emission, long led life span
Low power consumption, energy saving
Built in Electronic circuit board
Install on different angle
Measure 3 and half inches across
:smileyb:

Wheres the holes through the firewall? Where do I connect the wires too?

from the looks of those lights, they seem like the cheap ones with flashing LEDS, maybe once per second. Not a very good strobe, but i guess it's a start. I'm still wary of how it will look just sitting on your bumper.

Any 12 volt source can be used to power them. Splice a wire off your cig lighter, run a dedicated wire from the battery to a switch, whatever floats your boat.

If you look at my interior, I have a switch where the traction control would be. I ran a 12 gauge piece of wire from the battery to the switch and the other end splices off into underbodys, a cheapo set of strobes (did this like 2 years ago), and a couple sets of neons under the hood.

hmmm, now i'm getting 2nd thoughts about using them. I hooked them up in my blazer to see how they would go and they are bright you can see them in the day good, the flash isnt that fast but I dont know, I like the traction control idea, but I dont want to use my trim piece because there is no hole for it. I will have to hit the yards and find one and get the switch and the trim piece.

I just stumbled upon this forum, and am looking to install strobes in my 01 Intrepid. I plan on putting Whelen hide-a-way strobes (model HA239C, soft plug in) in my rear turn signals and possibly (unsure yet) in the driving lights up front.

I'm also planning on putting 4 TIR3s (in amber) on the rear deck, as it's possible that I'll be parked on the side of the road on an incident (I'm a fire department photographer), and would prefer that people NOT hit my car. Granted, a parking lot is the safest, but it's not always available.

Those TIR3s are freakin BRIGHT... You'll be VERY happy with those, if you choose to go that route... ;)

The hide-a-way strobes are a good idea too, especially if you want all-around warning to the front and back...

I used to install emergency lighting for a living, so if you have any questions, let me know..
