    So due to things i couldnt control this year, I am not using my new Superduty for plowing. I have an issue with my current plow truck. It is a Chevy, and has hideaway strobes, as well as a roof mounted LED strobe light. The LED strobe works fine. The hideaways however are acting very strange. When i flip the switch they come on for anywhere from 2- 30 seconds. Then they stop. Sometimes they come on while driving. or when i drop the blade or close a door. Or when the truck is sitting they start flashing. Any ideas?

    Strobe pack? We had an ambulance that the strobes would act funny. If you tapped it with your hand it would d
    start working.

    i will try and get a picture ASAP. and truthfully im not sure, i did not install any of the strobes in the truck im just stuck using it. but its strange sometimes movement from the truck turns them on, or if i turn on the rear dome light on with the button the strobes start. very strange
