HERO, is the first ever corner led module that inserts directly into the socket hole of the OE bulb. It replaces a vehicle turn signal, or brake light and then adds warning lights to your vehicle without drilling any holes in factory housings. Say goodbye to long adhesive dry times – and it powers right from the socket, simplifying the wiring process.
HELLA has designed HERO speciﬁc vehicle adapters to provide a smooth and tight ﬁt for a variety of vehicles. Check out our vehicle application overview in the Download area below.
HERO goes above and beyond the standard concealed lightheads by also functioning as the original indicator light. The adapters position the lighthead in the exact place of the original bulb which always ensures equal light distribution and good visibility.
Every HERO model is able to ﬂash in all four warning colors – Red / Blue / Amber / White. So, the same HERO lighthead can be used for police and security vehicles, ambulances, ﬁre trucks, tow trucks, roadside assistance and construction vehicles. You can select the individual HERO lightheads to flash whatever color combination you need and connect multiple units to flash in sync.
HERO is designed for Stop, Tail, Turn and Reverse light replacements and comes in 3 diﬀerent versions/indicator colors.
White designed for Reverse lights Amber designed for Turn Signals/Park lights Red designed for Stop/Tail/Turn Signals
