    We have a four corner hideaway kit installed out our 3/4 ton suburban and it doesn't work. All fuses are good and everything is connected correctly. What else could be the problem? Could the powerpack just be dead? what other things can i check?

    Try unplugging one strobe tube at a time and testing it. Sometimes I found out that if one tube goes bad it will shut the power supply down. ALso recheck your ground for the power supply. Make sure there is no paint in between the ground wire and the surface metal.

    Ill head out and try that, i just took all the strobes out and tested them in my truck since the power supplies are the same and all the heads work just fine. So, i will go check that.

    ground seems to be good and all strobe lights are good. I also tried unplugging each strobe line individually and that didn't work either. I'm going to plug the power pack into my truck tomarrow and see if that works since my truck and the burban have the same packs.
