- Plug the transmitter into your vehicle’s 7-Pin socket.
- Turn on the power switch located on the left side of the light bar. The red LED on the switch will illuminate when it is on.
- The tail lights will not turn on when you power up the bar, only when the tail lights or headlights in the towing vehicle are turned on. The same for stop and turn signals. This will dramatically increase the battery life between charges.
- In the event that you should discharge the batteries to the point that they will not operate the wireless light bar, you can plug a cable into the charging socket on the left side of the bar and operate it just like one of our wired light bars. This will not charge the bar, just gives you operation until you can charge it normally.
You cannot overcharge the battery in the light bar, so keep the bar on the charger when not in use. The batteries will resist developing a memory so you do not have to discharge them all the way. However, they must be charged on a regular basis to prevent them discharging to a very low voltage level.
Wire the included plug to an available 12V power source for charging as follows:
Power to red wire – Ground to black wire
Then plug it into the charging socket on the bottom of the bar. A 10 amp fuse is recommended.
When the bar is charging, the GREEN LED on the left side of the bar will light. If the LED is not lit, check your connections to make sure that you are connected to full time power.
