    so heres the deal, ive got the two strobes in my headlights done and all wired up and they work great, i was hooking up the rears and broke it so i ordered a new one and when it came in it did not work. it would make noise but no light so i called them up and they sent me a new one, well this one does the same thing. could it be the wiring some where or could they have sent me two bad ones. thanks for the help

    If you purchased the kit in which you have to put the ends on the strobe wiring yourself, (the white, 3 flat connectors) then double check the wiring at both ends. If one of the wires wasn't pushed far enough into the connector, it will not get a good enough power, signal or ground and will not light.

    I also had one of the wires chafe through the protective sheeting and when it was supposed to flash, it just arched out on the frame. So be sure the sound is coming from the bulb and not the wiring somewhere.
