    Hey Guys,

    I just bought a full size whelen edge withn the traffic arrows on the back. The bar came with no bulbs in the front part of the bar and 3 of the bulbs in the traffic arrows are not working. My questions are:

    What bulbs do I need to replace the ones that are burned out?

    What do I need to make the front functional? Lokks like the wiring is there just no bulbs....

    Can I add work/Alley lights if I dont already have them?

    Thanks, Matt

    It depends on which style they are. The older versions had halogen lamps that were not replaceable. The newer ones have twist-lock style and can be replaced. If you attach a few photos I can help you figure out which style you need.

    for the front your gonna need the square style strobe reflectors. these bulbs are not replaceable as they are built into the housing.

    I have 4 strobe bulb/reflectors, cables and a quad flash power supply if your interested. Not the prettiest but i just powered them all up and they work great. i'll even include the linear reflectors in the back.

    i can't pm yet but feel free to email me ksfenn@gmail.com. Im not looking for much for it as i don't have a use anymore
    here's a pic.

    Even, used bar can really be a money pit. if you email me the web site link ill see what you have. sent it to louis@strobesnmore.com. I would just be cautious as to what you spend. if you spend a bunch of money on it and you loose a power supply a new one is 300.00. Louis

    yes, The corner strobes function as they should. The traffic advisor and controller function as they should with the exception of the burned out bulbs.

    Not sure, Theyre completely missing. The reflectors do have what looks like some type of "twist lock" setup. I thought those were what I needed initially but just wanted to make sure

    the traffic advisor is halogen and uses either 27 or 35 watt bulbs which are a snap in or snap lock. snowjersey is right in that whay he has is much cheaper. We posted at the same time and I was talking a new power supply replacement. Problem with those older bars is that there are a few different power supplies for them and matching them up can be a pain. Like I said in my original post, used lightbars can be a money pit. Just consider what its actually going to cost you before spending a ton of money on it. You can buy a responder for 300.00 dollars which will be brighter than an older 8 strobe lightbar with old strobes in it.
