    i got a whelen light bar and two smaller whelen LED lights today, but my light bar has two black wires neither has any color on them at all. I would like to know if i hook them up to a power source if i accidently hook it backwards if it will melt down my lights or which wire is ground and hot

    I'd first take the cover off and see I could see which one was power and which one was ground or I would either take a in-line fuse to both of the wires and guess if you didn't want to take it apart.

    Yeah the lens should come off with a few screws, should be easy to see what wire goes where. If you cant tell with the lens off, post a pic of the insides, I'm sure we can figure it out

    The whelen responder 2 has 4 screws for the outter dome and then there is another piece to take off to access where the opening for the cable to exit. There should be a red and black wire inside coming out of the power supply. Nice find for free. The whelen tir6s are nice leds. Let us know what you find once you take the dome off.

    Those are all good lights if they are working properly. I just found a bunch of lenses for those minibars last week but no amber. Believe just clear and red if you need one.
