I wired this light (BD 20” Onx6) a few weeks ago and everything worked great, until it didn’t…
Yesterday morning I went out to start my truck and it was completely dead. I jumped it and was greeted with alarms and warning galore, brake system fault, traction control, and so on. It seemed unhappy just idling, and the brake lights were illuminated while no one was in the truck. That’s when I noticed the Onx6 was flickering, which is weird because it was turned off.
I removed the inline fuse and restarted the truck, everything went back to normal. Any ideas what’s happening here? Maybe I need to try a different body ground? Maybe the light is defective? Should I ground to the negative battery terminal? I’m not sure since it worked fine for about 3 weeks.
Here is the wiring setup (BD relay harness):

Have you tired doing a direct power test to the light ? Process of elimination will help you narrow down the issue. Next step would be to change the ground to the battery ground. Please feel free to shoot me an email to [email protected] if the problem continues.
