    SO im having an issue with my whelen edge 9000. I noticed the other night that passenger side front strobe was not working. If I turn it back on it would work for a min then stop.

    IS it a bad strobe unit or a bad power supply. Im leaning towards a bad strobe.

    I never worked on these light bars before you guys might have an idea. Is there a way to diagnose this issue?

    i would start troubleshooting by swapping the tubes. if the problem switches sides, then you know it is the tube. if it stays on the right, it is the power supply.
