  • How Loud is Hopkins Backup Alert for 3156 Bulbs
  • The back up alert and replacement reverse light bulb # HM20101VA is going to be less than 97 decibels. The overall sound will vary depending on the vehicle it is installed on since the light housings are different on all vehicles. But no matter what vehicle it is installed on you should be able to hear it without issue. If you want something louder I recommend back up alarm # PK41820. It is rated for 97 decibels and you will be able to hear it better since you can mount it under the vehicle.

  • Will Optronics Glare-Free Saltwater/Marine Spotlight Drain a Battery
  • The Optronics spotlight # KB-4001 uses a 170 watt halogen bulb so it will draw a lot of power. If you have it on long enough, say a night of fishing, it could very well drain the battery. I would use it with the battery that has the highest amp hour rating. Make sure the batteries are fully charged first. The best way to charge a battery is to use an AC charger. But charger technology has come a long way since the old trickle chargers. We carry CTEK battery chargers. These chargers will not o

  • Can Westin Driving Lights be Installed on a Gravely Wide Area Walk Behind Mower

  • Can the Glare-Free Saltwater/Marine Spotlight XB-4001 be Easily Removed from Its Base
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled Glare-Free Saltwater/Marine Spotlight, # XB-4001. It does easily come out of its base by turning the bottom knob on the base to loosen it. Then when the knob is backed off enough the light will lift right out. You can remove the light portion of the Glare-Free Saltwater/Marine Spotlight, # HB-2010, from its base as well though not quite as easily. There is a bolt that holds the light assembly to the base and is held in place by a wing nut. Just remove th

  • Will Installation of Rampage LED Tailgate Light Bar # RA960134 Interfere with Spare Tire on 2012 Ram
  • The Rampage LED Tailgate Light Bar # RA960134 that you referenced is intended to install in the gap between the tailgate and bumper on your Ram 1500 SLT using included automotive-grade pressure-sensitive tape. If your Ram is like the truck pictured in the linked photo (with the spare tire pulley access point on the right side of the bumper step) then this 60-inch light bar will block access to the spare.

  • Wiring Installation For Westin Driving Lights On 2005 Ford F-150
  • I spoke with one of our installers and they told me that technically you will want to wire this to the low side of the headlight wiring on your 2005 Ford F-150. You need to run the wiring to a switched circuit so that there is not power running to the relay all of the time. All of the wiring would be completed in the same manner as explained in the video but to the low side of the headlight wiring. It is not necessary to install it to the parking light wiring.

  • Comparing Driving and Fog Lights for a 2011 Ford Escape
  • Using either the Pilot lights, # PL-360C, or the Westin lights, # 09-0105, will work to brighten the road in front of you on your 2011 Ford Escape. Both lights have 55 watt halogen bulbs and produce bright white light. Traditionally, a driving light is a straight beam used to see further than the high beams can on a vehicle headlights and got its name from the early days of cars when they used high beams, or driving lights, all the time and only used low beams during the rare time when anothe

  • According to Pilot, the Universal LED Tailgate Fire Strip, # 360439, will fit the 2000 Ford F-150 XLT, but this is a universal light strip that was designed to fit many different vehicles. Pilot has not heard of any fit issues of this light on F-150s and neither have we, but depending on where or how it is installed, the tailgate could possibly hit the light. For correct installation, it should be attached to the back edge of the truck bed floor just under the tailgate.

  • Backup Alert for a 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500

  • Backup Alarm for a 2013 Ford C-Max

We do not have a backup alarm and replacement bulb that will fit in place of a W16W or 921 bulb. But I do have a solution for you. You could install a stand alone backup alarm, # PK41820. This will actually be louder than the replacement bulb types of alarms. It can mount underneath the vehicle and simply wires into a reverse light wire.

Instead of hard wiring the light and voiding the warranty, I recommend using a 4-pole wiring harness, like part # 18252. You can plug the light into this harness and hard wire this harness keeping the warranty intact.

  • Load Resistors Needed to Install LED Bulbs In GMC Sierra
  • Per Putco, you would need 1 load resistor inline with the wiring harness feeding LED bulb for a turn signal. I believe your Sierra has two bulbs per side, one for the running lamp, one for the brake/turn signal. You only need to install Load Resistors on the circuits feeding the turn signals. I would recommend the Putco # P230004A-2 resistors. Their finned aluminum body will be very effective at shedding excess heat. I have provided a diagram showing how the resistors should be wired.

  • Is an Additional Wiring Harness Required for Use with the Halogen Replacement Bulbs #P239006SW

  • You will be able to use the Universal LED Tailgate Fire Strip Brake, Tail and Turn Lights, # TLB-001, on your 1996 Ford Explorer. The only requirement is that you have a 4-Way connector at the rear of your vehicle for the unit to plug in to and at least 48 inches width of the back of your truck to mount the lights. I have included a link to an installation video below. Typically this gets mounted between the bumper and the tailgate. You will probably have to find a different place to install

  • Is there an Internal Converter on the Rampage LED Third Brake Light # RA86615
  • I pulled one of the Rampage LED Third Brake Light for Jeep # RA86615 from the warehouse and tested it, and there is an internal converter that eliminates the left and right turn signal from the vehicle 4-pole. The LED light functions as a brake light and when the brake and emergency flashers are activated, but not when the turn signals are activated. To connect this to your Jeep you can use the 4-pole that is on the light and connect that to a 4-pole on your Jeep or you can hardwire it direc

  • Will a Fire Strip LED Light Strip Fit Over Factory Brake Light Below Tailgate on a 2007 GMC Sierra
  • Since your 2007 GMC Sierra Classic already has a brake light in the location the Fire Strip would install you would need to remove that brake light. Like you said, you would not want to install it over the existing brake light because that will affect the fit and possibly the function of the Fire Strip # 360439. SO unless there is space above or below the brake light it will have to come off.

  • Can a Trailer Reverse Light Function Be Hardwired to a 2010 Ford Escape Trailer Wiring Harness
  • A typical 4-Way trailer wiring harness does not have a reverse light function so what I recommend is using powered converter # 119177KIT. This harness does require splicing into the tail light wiring but it is a powered converter so it will only put a minute amount of draw on the tail light wiring. The bulk of the power for the trailer lights will come from the battery connection. You can run this by a technician at your Ford dealer to determine if they think it would cause problems. If

  • Back Up Alarm Recommendation for a 2000 Fleetwood Tioga Class C RV on Ford Van Chassis
  • The 1999 Ford E-350 uses a 3156 bulb for reverse lights but you will have to pull the bulb on your RV to determine if it is the same. It should be printed on the unit somewhere or could be in the literature for the RV. If it is a 3156 bulb then you would use # HM20101VA. If it is not a 3156 or an 1156 (used with # HM20100VA that you referenced) there is an alternative solution. You could mount backup alert # BK97DB under the RV and wire it into a reverse light wire.

But not to worry because you can still use surface mount back up alarm # BK97DB. Mount this alarm under the truck and wire it into a revere light circuit. At 97 decibels it will be louder than the type that fits in place of a reverse light bulb.

  • Replacement 1157 LED Bulbs for Bargman 92 Series Trailer Tail Lights

Otherwise you will end up with a dim pink light when using white LEDs. LED bulb # P241157R-360 is a pair of red LEDs so they would work well behind a red lens. When used as stop, tail, turn bulbs behind a red lens they are DOT compliant. The 360 degree bulbs will not be as bright as the uni-directional lights like # P281571R-P which have a 240
