Covert Patrol Blackout/Tail Flash Kit for Expedition with FasTech




Covert Patrol



SoundOff Signal bluePRINT 500


Ford Expedition


2022, 2023, 2024


This is the Covert Patrol kit for use with the FasTech harness in a Ford Expedition. We offer other vehicle-specific and universal packages of the Covert Patrol line.

The Patrol Power Covert Patrol tail light flasher and taillight blackout module offers the following features:

  • Factory brake light flash (four selectable CA Title 13 compliant patterns)

  • Factory reverse light flash (NOT CA Title 13 compliant; can be disabled)

  • Supplemental tail light LED support

    • Typical use: install a blue strobe (not included) in each tail light assembly; use Covert Patrol to flash them whenever it flashes the brake light, but not when the vehicle flashes the brake light.

  • Bypass the module's internal flasher and instead use custom flash patterns: connect your siren's output to a Covert Patrol input for custom pattern flashing to achieve full-vehicle synchronization

  • Brake light and reverse light black out feature - enabled via switch (included with stand alone and universal models) or via siren controller

  • Full use of Molex connectors to ease troubleshooting and in the event bypassing of the system becomes necessary

  • Utilization of factory connectors on left and right tail lights for 2020+ Ford Utility applications, reducing installation time and minimizing cutting of factory wires


  • Covert Patrol module with connector pigtails as shown

  • Vehicle interface harnesses intercept factory circuits:

    • One connector receives brake switch, reverse switch, and park light signals that originally went to factory lights, redirecting them to the module

    • The other carries outputs from the module to the OEM lightheads

The blackout switch/power are connected to the module through the FasTech harness.
