To activate factory wigwags in a 2007/2008 Police Dodge Charger, connect pin 1 of the 24way upfitter connector found at the console (near the radio) to battery voltage -- the 47k series resistor is only required for MY2006.

That connection causes the VSIM module (located under the AM/FM radio) to send a CAN message to the FrontControlModule, where the front control module drives the headlights in the wigwag mode.

Pin 2 of the upfitter connector does the rear wigwags.

Some of the pinout of the 2008 upfitter connector from the VSIM to the console is different than 2006/2007 -- a Chrysler harness booboo for 2008.

Note that the VSIM (also known as PTIM) module is only on factory police Chargers -- civilian cars do not have this module.

    Although the use of flashing headlights does increase the visibility of any vehicle operating them, it can also create problems. Particularly when highbeam headlights are flashed, the wig-wag may create glare or may otherwise temporarily blind the drivers of oncoming vehicles. Wig-wags may also cause "moth effect", in which other drivers are attracted to the flashing lights, ultimately causing them to ram the vehicle in which those lights are installed; this continues to be debated.

My security light want go off on my 2006 dodge charger


Are you using a valet key? It requires the factory key that has a chip in it that the vehicle security system can identify. Anything else will not defeat the security system. And sometimes, the security system must be reset via the dealer's scan tool and access codes only they have. Sorry I couldn't be more help

How do I bypass a factory amp in a 2014 dodge charger se? I am having trouble hooking up my 5 channel amp which leads me to believe that there maybe a factory amp installed on my car.


Doubtful, trace wires from speakers using test light, does new amp have coaxial connectors? you may have incompatible model, probably need to match amp with new head unit, worst case you can rewire speakers directly to amp, use new wires, leave old wires in place just cut ends and put tape over.

there should be in the underhood fuse box one or 2 accesory fuses made just for your purpose(add ons) They should even be labeled as such or some similar words that one would define as an accesory or add on. Might even be spelled out in the manual.
