    How can I change the pattern selection on my whelen guardian from inside my truck? It has a cig. plug on it with on/off switch.I know that you need to add 12 volts to the white wire (less then a sec.) but thats inside the light bar.Just trying to think how i can do it.Can you guys think of something. THANKS MAD MAX

    well most whelen bars if you get the peramanent version .. come with 3 wires pos neg and (pos pattern) ... id go back to place where you bought it . and ask them if they have any cigar cords with pattern switch attached to them .. i know they make them .. they come with the able 2 Mini Led Bar ..

    or see if they have a permanent cord with three wires in it .. then just rewire the bar ..

    Hey Mad Max

    Unless for some reason you want to change the pattern often, you could power the wire momentarily at the light. As you stated less than a second changes the pattern, and if that pattern is running for more than a second then that pattern is the new default. See page 4 if you dont have this sheet.

    i would run the white wire to a second switch and hook it to power aswell, then press it quickly to change patterns.
