Wicked Warnings Client Responds to Fatal Semi Crash

Tuesday 1-30-18 a serious semi-truck accident took place on the ramp between I-80 and I-355. Our client O’Hare Towing was dispatched to the scene, along with the first responders. The ramp was closed for several hours and the safety lighting package of LEDs installed by Wicked Warnings played a critical role in securing the area and keeping nearby first responders and drivers safe and alert.

Our hearts go out to the people involved in this crash. Today, our thoughts are with the deceased and the passenger, who was transported to a local hospital. The 2018 F-350 Platinum O’Hare Towing scene support truck, designed and installed by Wicked Warnings, demonstrated perfectly the importance of a properly up-fitted vehicle helping to secure an emergency scene on Tuesday afternoon. Taking the right safety precautions by up-fitting your vehicle before an emergency situation arises ensures the safety of everyone else as well as your own when you face a tragedy. Be prepared in any situation by letting the Wicked Warnings team advise you about up-fitting your fleet of vehicles. Vehicles done by Wicked Warnings for O’HareTowing can be found below from our YouTube channel.

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!
