LED Light Compatibility Issues with some vehicles

Some newer vehicles, including the Ford F-150 with a factory-installed tow package, are not compatible with the LED Bar or other LED trailer lighting systems. This is because the vehicle’s tow package or electrical system has been designed to be used with automotive light bulbs.  These light bulbs require more electrical current than LED lights.   For these vehicles, the LED Bar will either not function at all or function incorrectly.  They may also produce a warning light on your dash that one of your light bulbs is out OR cause your turn signals to flash faster than normal.  This is because the vehicle “thinks”  there is a bulb out due to the low electrical current of the LED. 

These vehicles include:

2016-2023 OEM tow package equipped Ford F- Series trucks, sprinter vans, 

Expeditions, Excursions, Explorers,  Rangers, Broncos, and Mavericks.  

Other vehicles include newer BMW, Audi, Volvo, Chevrolet, and GMC with OEM tow packages.  

For LED Bar users experiencing dashboard warnings or rapidly flashing turn signals, you need to purchase a 4-pin flat to 7-pin round adapter with a built-in electrical resistor. This adapter mimics automotive bulbs' electrical current, potentially resolving compatibility issues. While we cannot guarantee universal compatibility, it has proven effective in most cases. Purchase the adapter at Etrailer.com or Amazon for seamless integration.

Living in Northern Maine will delay the installation as you'd imagine but at first glance, it looks great and feels solid. More updates to come! :)

Safety Light Bar for Bike Racks

Great customer service.

While I think the product is great, the review is focused on the outstanding customer service that I had with respect to this product.

When I first got the Safety Light Bar I did a very bone headed thing where I lost the light bar. I do not recall the name of the person I was working with (worked through the chat feature of the website), but if you recognize this issue, hats off to you.

From a review I was in the middle of writing:
"I must give a shout out to Hollywood Racks customer support for the way they handled a mishap I had during my testing of the device which was 100% my fault and they were very responsive and great in coming up with a solution. Without going into any detail I want to add that they did not know I was doing a review on their product while they were helping me out. Thanks Hollywood Racks!"
