    I want to wire 2 amber lightbars and 2 led light pods to a wireless strobe control module while also having the ability to use the 2 led light pods as reverse lights. Could I possibly just tap into the light pod wiring harness and run a switch to control as reverse lights? Maybe theres another way? Links to parts are below. I want to make sure this is possible before purchasing.

    Control Module:

    Led Pods:

    Amber Light Bars:

    Thanks!

    Use diodes on your white LEDs to make sure voltage doesn't feed back the wrong way.

    Would I tap the wiring harness with switch into the white led wiring and put a diode on the lead running into the control module? Also could you post a link to a similar in line diode?
