  • Dodge Charger Question

    A buddy of mine, who works for the same Agency I do, has a unmarked Dodge Charger. The vehicle is equipped with a red and blue visor light and rear strobes only. He is being told that installing strobes in the headlights will void the warranty, vehicle warranty expired already, and causes damage to the headlight . This being specific to the Charger as other vehicles in the Agency have strobes. Not only have I never heard of this before, but I have seen plenty of Chargers with strobes in the headlights. Wondering if anyone could lend some insight.
    I believe forgiveness is Gods function; my job is to simply arrange the meeting.

    our don't either, think it was something to do with LED bulbs also, or something.

      You can install strobes into the headlight shroud, separate from the head light themselves... dont see this affecting the headlight

        Not sure about the warranty, but I have heard that Strobes will melt the headlights because there just isn't enough space in there. LED "Strobes" are the best bet probably.

          I've had 'em in the last three assigned cars I've had, and haven't melted a headlight (or anything else) yet.

          Not trying to be a smart***, jus' sayin'.

          (Have 'em in my tail light and backup light housings as well.)

            Why not just install wig-wags? Besides, strobes are old news. LED's are the new hotness.
            The Charger can also wig-wag the taillights if the car is ordered with that option.

              It's a sealed light. If you drill into the light to place the strobe it brakes the seal letting moisture in and causes problems. That's what voids the warranty. We did it on the first group of chargers we got not knowing this. They all get condensation in them now and have have some water collect in the housing. That's what I was told by our fleet service guys.
