Safety Message to Installers and Users of Warning Light Equipment
People’s lives depend on your proper installation and servicing of our products. It is important to read,
understand, and follow all instructions shipped with this product. In addition, listed below are some other
important safety instructions and precautions you should follow:
• To properly install this light, you must have a good understanding of automotive electrical procedures
and systems along with proficiency in the installation and use of safety warning equipment.
DO NOT install equipment or route wiring in the deployment path of an airbag.
When drilling into a vehicle structure, be sure that both sides of the surface are clear of anything that
could be damaged.
In order for the light to function properly, a separate ground connection must be made. If practical, it
should be connected to the negative battery terminal. At a minimum, it may be attached to a solid metal
body or chassis part that will provide an effective ground path as long as the light system is to be used.
Locate the light control so the VEHICLE and CONTROL can be operated safely under all driving
If a vehicle seat is temporarily removed, verify with the vehicle manufacturer if the seat needs to be
recalibrated for proper airbag deployment.
Do not attempt to activate or deactivate the light control while driving in a hazardous situation.
You should frequently inspect the light to ensure that it is operating properly and that it is securely
attached to the vehicle.
File these instructions in a safe place and refer to them when maintaining and/or reinstalling the product.
Failure to follow all safety precautions and instructions may result in property damage, serious injury, or death.

Installing the Warning Lights
AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT—Do not install equipment or route wiring in the deployment
path of an airbag. Failure to observe this warning will reduce the effectiveness of the
airbag or potentially dislodge the equipment, causing serious injury or death.
NOTE: For electrical installation instructions, refer to the Installation and Maintenance Instructions included
with the warning light. Plan all cable routing before the installation.
To install the warning lights:
1. Route the wire from the lighthead through the bracket.
DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN SCREWS/NUTS—To avoid damage to the lightheads,
do not overtighten the screws or nuts.
2. Mount the lighthead to the bracket.
a. The IMPAXX 300 Series mounts with the bezel using the supplied #6-32 Tri-Lobe screws (Figure 1
on page 2).
b. The IMPAXX 600 Series mounts without the bezel using the supplied #10-32 TORX screws in
place of the original #10-32 cross-recessed screws (Figure 2 on page 2).
3. Position the assembly on the lower rear opera window panel of the vehicle at the selected location. The
location should lie within the fixed area of the window glass. Using the assembly as a template, mark the
centers of the two mounting holes.
DRILLING PRECAUTIONS—Before drilling holes, check the area into which you
are drilling to be sure you do not damage vehicle components while drilling. All
drilled holes should be de-burred and all sharp edges should be smoothed. All
wire routings going through drilled holes should be protected by a grommet or
convolute/split loom tubing.
4. Center-punch the marks and use a 1/8" drill bit to drill two 0.125" holes.
5. Secure the bracket through the drilled holes with two #8 Type B screws.
6. Connect the warning lights as described in the instructions provided with them.
7. Repeat steps 1 through 6 with the other side.
8. Test the warning lights for proper operation and the vehicle warning system according to the instructions
in the next section.

Testing the Warning System
LIGHT HAZARD—To be an effective warning device, an emergency warning system
produces bright light that can be hazardous to your eyesight when viewed at a close
range. Do not stare directly into this lighting product at a close range or permanent
damage to your eyesight may occur.
SOUND HAZARD—All effective sirens and horns produce loud sounds (120 dB) that
may cause permanent hearing loss. Always minimize your exposure to the sound
of the siren or horn, and wear hearing protection. Do not sound the siren or horn
indoors or in enclosed areas where you and others will be exposed to the sound.
After the installation, test the emergency warning system to ensure that it is operating properly. Also test all
vehicle functions, including horn operation, vehicle safety functions, and vehicle lighting systems to ensure
proper operation. Ensure that the installation has not affected the vehicle operation or changed any vehicle
safety functions or circuits.
Do not test the sound and light system of the vehicle while driving. Operating the vehicle warning systems
may pose a hazard to the operator and other drivers if the systems do not function as expected. Test the
vehicle only in a controlled environment. After testing is complete, provide a copy of these instructions to the
instructional staff and all operating personnel.
