Pilot Vehicle Electrical Fit Out

Hi guys. Briohny here, from Accelerate Auto Electrics and Air Conditioning. Today, we’re going to show you through the electrical accessories we’ve installed on a Pilot Vehicle. A Pilot Vehicle escorts a truck carrying an oversize load, and it has an oversize load ahead sign on the roof and some flashing lights. The customer has asked us to wire up two light bars, two spotlights, two HF radios, a dash cam, LED strip lighting, flashing amber lights on the roof, wig wag lights on the front and rear of the vehicle, an electric lift for the sign, and set up the dual battery system. There’s then a master control panel to turn all the lights on and off and lift the sign up from the driver’s seat.

The dual battery has been installed behind the driver’s seat to run all the accessories. It has two cigarette sockets, two USB ports, a voltmeter to monitor the charge so the battery doesn’t run low, an AGM battery and a BCDC to charge the AGM battery to its optimal level.

As you can see behind me, we’ve left all the wiring exposed. The customer specifically asked for this. Usually we hide it behind into the chassis, roof lining, or interior trims. However they wanted it exposed so if they’re on the road in the middle of the night and some things breaks down or a light doesn’t work, they can easily see where the fault is and try and fix themselves.

The van has been kitted out with wooden shelving. This bit here turns into a bed so the driver can sleep on the road when he’s on long hauls. We’ve installed a switch up here which turns on some LED lighting for the rear of the vehicle to light it up at night.

We’re sitting here in the driver’s seat, and behind me you can see this master control panel. All of the accessories are fed through here so the driver can easily turn them on or off at any time, making the lights work and the electric lift on the sign go up and down.
