This document provides all the necessary information to allow your Whelen product to be properly and safely installed.
Before beginning the installation and/or operation of your new product, the installation technician and operator must
read this manual completely. Important information is contained herein that could prevent serious injury or damage.
•
Proper installation of this product requires the installer to have a good understanding of automotive electronics,
systems and procedures.
•
If mounting this product requires drilling holes, the installer MUST be sure that no vehicle components or other
vital parts could be damaged by the drilling process. Check both sides of the mounting surface before drilling
begins. Also de-burr any holes and remove any metal shards or remnants. Install grommets into all wire
passage holes.
•
If this manual states that this product may be mounted with suction cups, magnets, tape or Velcro®, clean the
mounting surface with a 50/50 mix of isopropyl alcohol and water and dry thoroughly.
•
Do not install this product or route any wires in the deployment area of your air bag. Equipment mounted or
located in the air bag deployment area will damage or reduce the effectiveness of the air bag, or become a
projectile that could cause serious personal injury or death. Refer to your vehicle owner’s manual for the air bag
deployment area. The User/Installer assumes full responsibility to determine proper mounting location, based
on providing ultimate safety to all passengers inside the vehicle.
•
For this product to operate at optimum efficiency, a good electrical connection to chassis ground must be
made. The recommended procedure requires the product ground wire to be connected directly to the NEGATIVE
(-) battery post.
•
If this product uses a remote device to activate or control this product, make sure that this control is located in
an area that allows both the vehicle and the control to be operated safely in any driving condition.
•
Do not attempt to activate or control this device in a hazardous driving situation.
•
This product contains either strobe light(s), halogen light(s), high-intensity LEDs or a combination of these
lights. Do not stare directly into these lights. Momentary blindness and/or eye damage could result.
•
Use only soap and water to clean the outer lens. Use of other chemicals could result in premature lens cracking
(crazing) and discoloration. Lenses in this condition have significantly reduced effectiveness and should be
replaced immediately. Inspect and operate this product regularly to confirm its proper operation and mounting
condition. Do not use a pressure washer to clean this product.
•
It is recommended that these instructions be stored in a safe place and referred to when performing
maintenance and/or reinstallation of this product.
•
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THESE SAFETY PRECAUTIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS COULD RESULT IN DAMAGE TO

DRILLING THE CABLE ACCESS HOLE
FRONT OF LIGHTBAR
Mounting your Edge® Lightbar
For lightbars
with cables exiting
the Driver-side
of the extrusion
Refer to the Lightbar mounting guide included with your lightbar
Routing your Edge Lightbar Cable(s)
1.
To protect the headliner from damage caused by drilling the cable access
hole through the vehicle roof, allow a 5” to 7” distance between roof and
headliner by lowering the headliner before drilling.
2.
Using a 1” hole saw, drill the cable access hole.
NOTE:There may be a roof support member that spans the distance
between the driver’s and passenger’s side. DO NOT DRILL THROUGH THIS
MEMBER! Adjust the location until the hole can be drilled without contacting
this support member.
For lightbars
with cables exiting
the Passenger-side
of the extrusion
Drill cable access hole in appropriate area
for your lightbar (see note)
Fig. 1
B-PILLAR
(INSIDE VIEW)
3.
Use a round file to smooth and de-burr the edges of the hole.
4.
Insert a 1” grommet (user supplied) into the cable access hole.
5.
Insert the cable(s) through the cable access hole into the vehicle. Use RTV
silicone to weatherproof the access hole after the cable(s) are pulled
completely into the vehicle.
CABLE EXIT HOLE
6.
Route the cable(s) down through the B-pillar. The cable(s) must make a 90°
turn to enter the B-pillar. Although routing the cable in this manner may be
difficult, this has been determined to be the best procedure. It is up to the
installation technicians discretion whether to route the cable(s) as
recommended or use an alternative route. Pull the full length of the cable(s)
out of the hole at the base of the B-pillar (Fig. 1) and route towards your
switch panel. Refer to the instructions included with your switches for switch
wiring information.
