"im thinking its my battery maybe i just need a new one ?" --- the problems started when you added a siren and emergency lights. You probably hooked them to the wrong wires. Disconnect them and see if someone at the firehouse can show you what wires to tie into. They might have written instructions since they all have similar equipment.

I have them wired straight to my battery on a switch so thats what makes me think it could be the battery.. But is that why my flashers are going off when my truck is off ?
