    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).

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