    Hi all,
    I am looking to wire my new-to-me Sho-me mini bar to a cigarette plug. However, I would like to be able to switch patterns. Is it possible to find the cigarette plug that has the two switches(one momentary for pattern switch) and if so, can I wire the pattern wire directly to that or is there some other configuration I need? (I am electrically impaired as far as wiring goes)

    The magnetic bars have those cig plugs with switches. Try calling them and see if they'll sell ya one.

    Found them on Sirennet.com....going to have order one. If anyone has seen them the picture shows white,black and green wires on the power cord, can I just match up the wires and be good to go???

    Yes, wire color doesn't matter as long as its hooked up correctly.

    Not sure if we have the same bar but on the bottom of my ABLE light bar you can change the patterns by clicking the button under the light.
