    I have two l.e.d. strobes in the rear of my truck, they alternate from one clear lense to the other! Well the other day i put them on, and it seems as if the right one is not working. With further inspection the bulb is not out, i hit the lens cover and it went off! I also took the lens cover off and jiggles some wires and it started working again! When its not working i can hear some type of clicking noise like its trying to do somthing.(what i dont kno) Im not very educated in this type of stuff, im thinking maybe its a loose wire of some sorts!:dizzy: If some type of educated mind can let me kno what they think is wrong, please let me kno!


    Thankyou, Tim:waving:

    First off, are they strobes or LEDS? Strobes take a power supply to run, LEDs do not, they are just direct wire.

    sounds to me like either a short in the connection where the strobe bulb hooks into the strobe wiring.

    Sounds like you either have a loose red or black wire(#1 or #2 position), or the bulb is dead and you can still hear the trigger.
