  • Dimming courtesy light?

    Hey,

    Not quite sure whether this was the place to post! I've got a 306 which just has a standard on/off courtesy light, no delay or anything fancy. Is there any way that i could somehow make it dim out slowly when it loses power? maybe shove a capacitor in there?

    cheers,
    Jon

    a capacitor should work. and i dont see it causing any problems wiring it (albeit im not an electrical engineer).

      i think mine does that already

      EDIT: just spent the afternoon under my car fitting a new front subframe. Got a subframe, 2 wishbones, anti-roll bar and 1 ball joint for 30!!!!! I ish i had gone t that place sooner. I have already spent 90 on a ball joint (from pug as it was the only place that had one - argh) and a wishbone (came with a ZX balljoint and they ha dno others)

          Not sure the rest of us would pay $9 just to see it.

            Found this (free!)

            (From a page mentioned in a previous post)

            12 Volt Lamp Fader (Automatic)

            Might just have to do that myself...

              No I'm not a subscriber. I only read the first page. Sorry about that.
