  • 7. There is moisture showing on the border of the Revolution Series R79, is this a problem?
     

    Not at all! Since most of the moisture getting into any lighthead comes from micro-cracks along the edge of the lens, we did something about that! We developed a vent/gutter system that protects the electronics of the lighthead and allows the moisture (or other elements) to flow around the protected part of the lighthead.

  • 11. Why does one of my lights look dimmer then the others?
     

    When programming the light you can go back to the default by holding the yellow wire but each time you do this it cycles between dim and bright mode. Reprogram the light using documentation to match this light with your others.

    Note: Each specific lights documentation can be found on our shopping pages under the product information tabs.

    If you see the bar flashing your preference it is saved, make sure that you are programming the correct wire combination for the mode connect to your vehicle ie: orange and blue for mode 2 and not just the blue. Any combination of the Orange, Blue, and White/Black wires can create another mode.
