....a little old lady cop? Whelan is a manufacturer of roof-mounted light bars and other police equipment.

I would guess your car was once a patrol car. But since most police departments didn't like the g3, it's probably from a private security company or maybe some school's campus pd.

now now children...... quiet down.... :D

I dunno what I'm going to do with them just yet... i spent a lil time tinkering with the wiring... looking at a wiring diagram from Whelan..... but that was a bust (so far)..... I may get rid of em.... i may just let em sit there.... dunno yet.... depends how some things pan out in the next few weeks.... (lets just say you shouldnt drive your taurus too fast)

In the meantime, those that pm'd me and left messages here I'll keep in mind.... I'll post em on ebay or the for sale forum here if/when i do sell them n i'll letcha all know

You could have the makings of a riced out show taurus... Don't mean riced as an insult.

BTW, have you found the power pack, or did they just leave the lights?

Might want to reconsider if you come to Ca:

California Penal Code:

538d. (a) Any person other than one who by law is given the
authority of a peace officer, who willfully wears, exhibits, or uses
the authorized uniform, insignia, emblem, device, label, certificate,
card, or writing, of a peace officer, with the intent of
fraudulently impersonating a peace officer, or of fraudulently
inducing the belief that he or she is a peace officer, is guilty of a
misdemeanor.
() (1) Any person, other than the one who by law is given the
authority of a peace officer, who willfully wears, exhibits, or uses
the badge of a peace officer with the intent of fraudulently
impersonating a peace officer, or of fraudulently inducing the belief
that he or she is a peace officer, is guilty of a misdemeanor
punishable by imprisonment in a county jail not to exceed one year,
by a fine not to exceed two thousand dollars ($2,000), or by both
that imprisonment and fine.
(2) Any person who willfully wears or uses any badge that falsely
purports to be authorized for the use of one who by law is given the
authority of a peace officer, or which so resembles the authorized
badge of a peace officer as would deceive any ordinary reasonable
person into believing that it is authorized for the use of one who by
law is given the authority of a peace officer, for the purpose of
fraudulently impersonating a peace officer, or of fraudulently
inducing the belief that he or she is a peace officer, is guilty of a
misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment in a county jail not to
exceed one year, by a fine not to exceed two thousand dollars
($2,000), or by both that imprisonment and fine.
© Any person who willfully wears, exhibits, or uses, or who
willfully makes, sells, loans, gives, or transfers to another, any
badge, insignia, emblem, device, or any label, certificate, card, or
writing, which falsely purports to be authorized for the use of one
who by law is given the authority of a peace officer, or which so
resembles the authorized badge, insignia, emblem, device, label,
certificate, card, or writing of a peace officer as would deceive an
ordinary reasonable person into believing that it is authorized for
the use of one who by law is given the authority of a peace officer,
is guilty of a misdemeanor, except that any person who makes or sells
any badge under the circumstances described in this subdivision is
subject to a fine not to exceed fifteen thousand dollars ($15,000).


Just my advice is all. ;)

Looks like they just left the lights and the wiring for strobes in the inner and outer tails, and the AMP power connections for a lightbar or directional arrow in the backglass....

I'm currently in the process of checking all that out.....

the white wire is cut, the ground is still grounded to the factory ground bolt there in that pass. side recess... the red wire is uber long and has a splitter in it, or an unused splice and theres a bare silver wire that's cut short as well..... so it must have been a four-wire setup... but i haven't given enough thought to the wiring diagram at Whelen's website

There are TONS of Gen II and Gen III and even Gen IV Taurus cop cars down here... most of the Gen IV's are just traffic cops though.
