N16 CHECK THE TRAFFIC CONTROL FLASHING LED (LIGHT EMITTING DIODE) CONTROL MODULE
  • Replace the traffic control flashing LED control module with a known good module.
  • Operate the system and determine if the concern is still present.

Is the concern still present?
Yes GO to N17
No INSTALL a new traffic control flashing LED control module.

N17 CHECK THE CONTROL HEAD
  • Replace the suspect control head with a known good control head.
  • Operate the system and determine if the concern is still present.

Is the concern still present?
Yes INSTALL a new communication cable between the control head and the lighting relay center or lighting and siren control module. TEST the system for normal operation. If the concern returns, GO to N18
No INSTALL a new control head.

N18 CHECK FOR CORRECT LIGHTING CONTROL OPERATION
  • For vehicles with lighting and siren control, disconnect and inspect all the lighting and siren control module connectors and jumpers.
  • For vehicles with lighting control only, disconnect and inspect all the lighting relay center connectors and jumpers.
  • Repair:
    • corrosion (install new connector or terminals – clean module pins)
    • damaged or bent pins – install new terminals/pins
    • pushed-out pins – install new pins as necessary
  • For vehicles with lighting and siren control, reconnect all the lighting and siren control module connectors and jumpers and all previously disconnected exterior system connectors. Make sure they seat and latch correctly.
  • For vehicles with lighting control only, reconnect the lighting relay center connectors and all previously disconnected exterior system connectors. Make sure they seat and latch correctly.
  • Operate the system and determine if the concern is still present.

Is the concern still present?
Yes CHECK OASIS for any applicable service articles: TSB, GSB, SSM or FSA. If a service article exists for this concern, DISCONTINUE this test and FOLLOW the service article instructions. If no service articles address this concern, CONTACT Whelen Service/Diagnostics at 1-860-526-9504, extension 8308.
No The system is operating correctly at this time. The concern may have been caused by module connections. ADDRESS the root cause of any connector or pin issues.
