    We just bought a 6 bulb hideway kit from speedtech lights, We have a tons of their leds in several vehicles and they have always been great. We had a issue with their hideway kit. The cables to the rear of the truck were not long enough so we took two of the shorter cables since we were only using 4 bulbs and used connectors to put them together so they would reach. When we first powered up the system everything was on. After about 2 minutes we had only the front which is continues to be the problem. Im thinking maybe you can hook the cables together to make them longer? I have checked everything else and its all fine. I have put in tons of leds and strobes and i cant figure this one out. Maybe i need longer one piece cables? Any advise would be great i need to get this wrapped up today

    check you connection in the middle .. sounds like a grounding issue .... if you connecting them together use the regular pins supplies then heat shrink each strand ..... usually when strobes stop working usually is grounding problems ..
