Radio Shack does not carry the load-resistors needed. You best bet, if you want to be able to buy them at retail, is an auto-parts store, but, be prepared to pay ~$13 for two. They are usually sold as "LED load equalizers".

Yea. I went to a radio shack and they didn't have all the parts:( I'm just going to order the parts. Any suggested websites?

Example of PNP mosfet the flywheel diode is required if anything other than a resistive load is used to protect transistor from reverse emf for say a coil collapseing.





N-channel MOSFET as a switch where the MOSFET is placed between
P-channel MOSFET Switch

the load and the ground. This also allows the gate drive or switching signal to be referenced to ground (low-side switching).

But in some applications we require the use of P-channel enhancement-mode MOSFET were the load is connected directly to ground. In this instance the MOSFET switch is connected between the load and the positive supply rail (high-side switching) as we do with PNP transistors.


I hope this helps some with your experiment with the mosfets.
I don't understand the damn thing just found the info and thought about yall.

Anyone out there with some spare time want to build me a set and add a fee for your time? I am still deployed out in the middle east and i don't have a radio shack for about 3000 miles.

Be happy to paypal someone for their time.

IM me if you can help.

Thx Wizzer

Prototype...so you plan to make a model for retail? Plug and play? Time frame?

That doesn't look like finished product...
sequential turn signal have to work like this in my opinion:
1. inner lamp turns on (outer is off)
2. 0.25s delay outer lamp turns on
3. they both stay on for any time (pressed on brake or turn signal)
4. inner lamp turns off BUT OUTER STILL is ON
5. 0.25s delay outer lamp turns OFF

the delay have to be the same (between turning on and off) in any case - that's my point. and durance can be changed

i'm working on it and soon will post scheme and how final product looks))

These will be an option on our afterburners, and, we'll also offer them separately. The initial, production boards should be in tomorrow.

Here's a shot of a production board with a stand-in transistor ((MOSFET's not in yet)..

Since this is a DIY thread, we will make the boards available for those that want to build this.

Ok, I'm considering doing this. I just want to verify that the last parts list for the relay setup (post# 245) includes EVERYTHING needed for this DIY. This includes all the resistors needed so the BCM doesn't error out. Everything to make this a success.

So far that parts list is about $54 (minus shipping), so I'm hoping it's complete.

Thanks,
Mat

It was a while ago, but I'm pretty sure I included everything except wire and solder to make the connections. P/N RT50J-5.0-ND is the resistor you're wondering about. It's a 5 Ohm, 50 W through-hole resistor.

After looking at the relay I choose, I think this one would be a better choice: 255-1239-ND. It's got a higher contact rating and is cheaper.

Highlifeman - that's what I thought because of that part, but I just wanted to be sure. :-)

Yup, I also saw your post a few later changing the relays and took that into account as well, but appreciate the re-update.

Looks like I'm good to go then for about $54 plus shipping. We'll see what happens. Thanks for the updated info and I'll use the latest posted schematic.

I thought I would upload a "tweaked" relay schematic. I really didn't change much, but I just added a couple of notes that I got from reviewing this entire thread. I hope this helps out people. I just ordered the parts via Digi-key, so just waiting for them to come in. Once they do, then I'll hope I can solder them all together as the others have and come out with a working unit. I'll then post up a Youtube video of my success.
