    I have a set of 4 corner strobes set up on my 01 dodge,they are 5 years old and i have not had any problems with them until this year, they work only for about 5 minutes and then stop- the flash pattern is not what it used to be and when they stop working if i turn the switch off i have to wait a while to turn them back on. anyone have any idea what the problem could be, i was thinking that maybe i need a new power supply. any ideas ?

    After 5 years w/no problems and now this I would check all my grounds real well and maybe even wire brush and reconnect them.

    Loss of a ground will over heat your box and when that happens they act just as you describe.

    I would make sure it did not get wet either like the poster before mentioned as well. My guess is a bad ground or 2.
