    a few weeks ago I started having problems with two Whelens LINZ6 LED lights. The yellow had lost its sync with the other Yellow on the side of my back rack. It just stayed soild for the most part while the other one worked as it should.

    The 2nd was a red that is wired to burn soild for brake and turn. It blink once so fast you wouldnt see it. That had been that way for a month or so.

    Two weeks, I called Strobesnmore and ask them about warrenty info. The girl remind me Whelen had a 5 year, I thought it was 3 years. Anyways, before I got off the phone, she e-mailed me a copy of my paid invoice and the repair phone number.

    Last weeked, I pulled the two lights off and noticed the 2nd red light was not right either. Pulled all three off.

    Monday I called Whelen, another girl said label them with problems and attach return info. Off the phone in less then a minute, thinking that was to easy.

    Tuesday, I dropped them in a fedex box, my buss card and a copy of paid invoice. I bought them in Dec of 2011. I twoday shipped them to CT so they would have gotten them on Thursday.

    Thinking I would call them Monday to see whats up, well I got a UPS email Sunday saying they would be delivered back today. I was like really? That was super quick. Got home, opened the box thinking I would fine a srcew you card a broken lights. (bad luck lately)...... well three brand new lights

    Whelen has always been good with replacing bad lights. I am also happy to see that they are putting the gore tex patches on the LINZ6 lights. I know many people having problems with the old ones getting water into them and causing problems.

    I do like the LINZ6 they are good for small spaces and are very bright and have good spread of light. With that in mind Where are you going to be putting them?
