Question about Lithonia Lighting Psq500 Power Sentry Inverter Charger

Open Question

Emergency light works, regular light does not?

I have an emergency light power pack that I think is no good. Here's the problem. If I turn off the breaker the battery kicks and the lights come on, however, during normal operation the light fixture does not light up. Is there some kind of ballast in the psq500 that could be interrupting the flow of power while under normal operation? I already replaced the fixtures regualr ballast. Any ideas? Thanks.

    The light acts as though the ballast is failing.  the lights are unusually hot showing that the ballast is still attempting to supply starting power.

Here is the link for Lithonia Lighting wiring diagrams for battery packs:

If your emergency ballast is new and the battery is charged, then you must recheck your wiring and make sure you have wired the emergency ballast correctly and for the right type of ballast.

Hope this helps. Sparkylikes480

SOURCE: no power to lighting ballast

Follow the appropriate wiring exactly. There are about 6-8 different diagrams. Find your lamp type and number of lamps. Locate your ballast type (usually instant these days) Quite often these diagrams show a switch on the power lead going to the operating ballast. If it isn't on a switch be sure to wire it in with the lead to the emergency battery ballast.

1987. Why is there no power at the turn signal cam?


Do you have brake and parkng lights? The turnsignal switch on the column is just designed to relay a path to the flasher and then it is designed to interupt the brake and some of the parking lights lights, which cause the flashing on and off. Double check fuses double check bulb socks and bulbs for good contacts. Does the 4 ways work? If the lights all flash then locate the turn signal flasher and switch with emergency flasher if possible to rule out relay. If those are all good and the emergency flasher lights work and bulbs, then you would have a problem with the turn signal switch. Hope this all helps

I have a 2003 S10. My rear turn signals work, emergency flashers work, and my 3rd brake light works, but my tail light brake lights don't work. What do I do?


Check for power and ground to the lamps. Most likely you have lost ground, since you replaced everything else.

My turn signals have stopped working. I replaced a bulb, thinking that was the problem but they still dont work. I think it may be the actual turn signal switch (in the steering column) but was wondering...


The flasher relay is mounted in the main fuse panel under the dash, driver's side.Are the lights coming on at all, or is there nothing ? it is possible that you may have a bad ground wire to the signals. Do the emergency hazards work ( lighting up and flashing?)If so, then your ground is good and it could very well be the flasher. You should be able to switch the emergency flasher for the turn flasher for a test of the circuit. The flashers should be mounted side by side in the fuse panel - just exchange them and test. If so, keep the emergency flasher there and take the turn flasher in to replace. The parameters should be the same so you can just leave the E. flasher relay in place and out the turn flasher where the E. flasher was.

Turning signals not working all the time


Sounds like the blinker relay. Is the emergency flasher switch on the dash above the radio ? If it is the blinkers relay is the same as the emergency relay. If the blinkers stop working pound on the emergency lights switch and if they start working then replace the emergency lights relay switch cause the blinkers is on the same relay as the emergency lights. My 2001 Grand Am does the same and I just hit the emergency lights switch and they start working again.

Kill power to light and emergency single light does not turn on also with power on push test knob and emergency bulb not come on


Hello Ramon, Check the power back (battery cell) as without a functioning battery pack, the emerbency light won't function.

Typically the batery packs will need to be replaced periodically every 4-5 years, depending on the istallation location and ambient temperatures.

When you kill the power to the emergency lighting circuit the PSQ is switched to operate automatically on battery power only. The same thing occurs when you press the test button; it disconnects the lighting from the electric power that keeps the battery charged and ready for service. You might also want to check the bulbs with a test meter (remove the bulbs from the fixture and test with the Ohm setting) While rare that these bulbs burn out, since they aren't usually illuminated often, only during a power disruption/outage, etc.

Here's a link to the Lithonia site with the spec sheets for the PSQ series of emergency lighting products, for your use and reference.

If your Heatpump's fan isn't running but your compressor is, your fan motor is out. If nothings happening at all ensure your getting power to heatpump (ex: breaker tripped, fuses blown on outside power switch, or fuses blown in breaker box?)

Left turn signal turns on emergency blinkers


These functions are all controlled by the turn signal switch, also known as the multifunction switch, this is a common issue you have and will require you replace the switch.
