Light Bar Help Question

Hey guys,


The PO on my Jeep installed a 30 inch double row light bar on the front bumper. I will never use it and want to take it off. Is there anything complicated about disconnecting everything? The on/off switch for it is in the cabin down near the gas pedal. I just don't want to screw anything up regarding the battery. Thanks for any help.

Just disconnect the fuse/relay and tuck the wires back in (so you don’t have an accidental ground). If it’s not properly fused, then it defiantly needs to go! Unless it was wired by pro, or looks like, I’d remove it all.

It does look like he spent some money and had it professionally done. When I had my inspection the dealer did disconnect the fuse/relay near the battery so it could pass and I just plugged it back in. So I can just unplug that, cut the wire that goes out of the light bar and just tuck in and leave the wires?

Just take the whole thing off. Personally I would prefer not having random wires hanging around under my hood. It is probably super easy to remove.

If it looks like a clean install (wires ziptied not just thrown around), pull the fuse and then what I do is bend the red (hot) wire in a U and then take some heat shrink and seal the end. Just in case the fuse gets put back in. Who knows you may want to put some other lights up front or something else that requires power. This way half the job of running wires is already done.
