Feature Build: Funeral Hearse Vehicle Safety Lighting

The Halloween season is upon us and in full swing. To get in the mood to celebrate one of our favorite times of the year, we will be taking a look at some of our funeral hearse and funeral escort builds. While a hearse can give some people the creeps, it plays a very important role in directing traffic during a funeral procession. Our Wicked Warnings team was tasked with installing the proper vehicle safety lighting to ensure the safety of not only the hearse but the rest of the vehicles in the procession. 

Funeral Hearse Upfit

The Build: Adding vehicle safety lighting and 100-watt air horn

Our team of experts was able to upfit the hearse and funeral escort vehicle to be compliant with the regulations regarding the procedures for funeral processions. The proper vehicle safety lighting system is critical to signal to other motorists to proceed with caution. From going through busy intersections to driving down multi-lane roads, safety is our priority. Specifically, to complete the funeral escort build, we used products exclusively from our online store. These products include:

The vehicle safety lighting system is controlled using a drill-free install right onto the dashboard of the Cadillac within reach of the driver at all times. The LIN-4 strobes were placed inside and outside of the vehicle to ensure safety and visibility from all angles. The view below shows where these strobes were placed. 

Check out our products in action on the funeral hearse and the escort vehicle our team upfit in the videos below. For more videos of our builds from trucks to Jeeps, visit our YouTube channel. Visit our Wicked Store where you can find the products we used on this project and more.

Video Demonstration of Wire Swap Installation for Auto Flasher Kits - Molex Connector Pin Removal & Replacement

What are the Wicked Auto Flasher Kits & how do they work?

Wicked Warnings has been around since 2005 with stellar references and we have been using our WAF (Wicked Auto Flasher) module since early 2016 with zero reported vehicle failures. There is no known risk to using any factory lighting as flashers that we are aware of. Of course, all your factory lights will always revert to factory function when the strobes are not being used.

Many of our builds feature a combination of factory lighting as well as purpose-built emergency lights to create a more effective display, so we urge you to consider more than just factory strobe lighting on your build. We have many options available to supplement the factory lighting.

How does the Auto Flasher connect to my truck anyway?

We have 3 connection methods used in our WAF (Wicked Auto Flasher) kits. The way that we manipulate the factory lighting is through the wires. We DO NOT reprogram any of the computers. Everything we do is easily reversible, and any number of individual kits can be combined onto a single switch if desired. There is no single kit to flash all factory lights, as we must retain circuit individuality. The following three methods are used to interface with the factory wires.

  • Wire Cut: In certain lights, like the white cargo light by the third brake, the only way is to cut a single wire (at this time). We understand that some people are uncomfortable cutting wires and we are working hard to offer “cut-free” solutions as fast as we can. This is how some of the current website kits are sold. Sometimes, this is the only option to achieve the desired display.
  • Wire Swap NO CUT: This is by far our favorite solution and how most of the new generation kits will be made if possible. Wire Swap is how ALL the Headlight and Taillight kits are going to be made for the FORD and many GM trucks. We are working to update the current website options to this new “wire swap” kit and will continue noting any changes on the product online as they happen. It really is just as easy as swapping a wire. Again, the kits will have notes in the description stating which version they are. Click here to watch a video showing the Wire Swap method.
  • (NEW & COMING SOON) Plug N Play Extensions: Plug N Play extensions can be purchased for an extra cost. Please bear with us as these are all handmade and fairly difficult to source parts for. We have some availability and are waiting on some parts for others.

We hope this helps to answer any questions about our Auto Flasher Kits and hope you enjoy these products!
