I purchased an Autofeel 30 inch light bar that has 4 rows of LEDs.
I have seen this bar advertised under a number of different names, but as far as I know it's the only one with 4 rows of LEDs (they all look the same). I have added a picture of the bar, so you may recognize it from that.
It's a cheap Chinese bar, but it works well for the purpose I want it for which is a side flood light.
My problem is it also has 4 modes (white steady, white strobing, yellow steady, yellow strobing). These modes are selected by a time delay, so if the unit is switched off and on in less then 7 seconds, it will select the next mode.
If switched off and on again after more then 7 seconds, it will go back to steady white.
I have it rigged up to sync with my high beam and it's proving to be a major pain in the rear (or front in this case).
My first thoughts (see my previous question) were to build a time delay circuit that prevents the unit coming on in less then 7 seconds after it was switched off and I think I have that sorted. However one of the contributors mentioned it would be better to directly modify the light bar.
I have seen it advertised with an extra wire which you use to manually select the mode (that's what I thought I was buying) so I guess it's possible to modify the bar to make it work like that.
So my question is, which is a long shot, I know: Does anyone have any information, circuit, advice to modify the light bar so it only works on white steady?
I have written to the manufacturers and the supplies but got nothing back, except how to use it with the time delay to switch the mode.
