Cree Daytime Running Lights convert to single phase help wanted
« on: February 08, 2020, 03:38:29 PM »
Got a pair of these fitted on my roadie but had enough of them tripping onto flash mode without me knowing. I've seen a post/youtube video somewhere that shows you how to convert them to single phase but can't remember where. Can anyone help please? Cheers

If they're going into strobe mode on their own, I'd have a good look at the switch and cabling to the.

Thanks for replies lads very helpful. I stalled the bike twice yesterday in Lancaster and didnt realise they'd tripped onto flash till I got home - bit embarrassing as I was on a bloodbike run came all the way home up the M6 and wondered why folk were getting out of my way!!  :008:

As I understand it some types have the circuit board that allows the soldering/bridging fix, others don't.

If yours are like mine they will usually start on fixed bright mode. If you turn the key (or switch if you have one ) off and on on again in a short time frame the lights will move through the 3 settings in sequence. So if they were on fixed beam and you stalled then restarted within (say) 15 seconds they may have just moved through the various modes. I can't remember if flashing mode is 2nd or 3rd in the sequence. If you stalled twice they may have simply cycled from fixed bright - fixed  low - strobe each time the engine stopped and started.

It is a feature of the way those particular lights are built they have three modes, on, flash and off.

I know but the OP indicated they were doing it randomly, suggesting the power was being interrupted.

That's exactly what happened. Have looked at the various youtube vids on disabling the flash function but none show my circuit boards  :023:

Can you post a photo of your circuit board? I've got a spare set that I used for testing and their boards are different to most posted online. I could take a look if similar to yours.

Thanks pic attached but can't really see much the board is only about the size of a 10p coin
