    I bought a 690 and have 4 of the 6 hooked up. They had worked great for about 6-8 times now i have nothing. I have power and ground the unit turns on you can here it running. Instead of the normal clic,clic,clic,clic sound it has a bzbzbz sound. No fuses are blown. Any ideas?

    Sounds to me like you have a bad wire or connection somewhere. The box will buzz when it goes into a protection mode. Unplug each wire then plug back in one at a time to see which one is causing your problem.

    The strobe light wire, or the power and ground wires? In the directions i thought it said something about runnin ethier 2 or 4 of the wires. Will it mess with anything running 3 or 1 at a time

    It sounds like a strobe light wire. The grey 3 wire that plug into the bulbs.
