Now this is going to be for one of you electrical guruÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s out there, yes Mr Eckett IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m looking at you.
A while back one of the door lock buttons in the back of mine became detached and dropped into the bottom of the door. I retrieved it, but never re-fitted it and as such IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve just had one of the escutcheons with a hole in it. This is what set my mind a wandering.
Would it be possible to mount a 9mm domed LED (Light Emitting Diode) in these that glow red when the central locking is activated and turn off when the car is unlocked?
I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want them bright or flashing with the alarm LED on the IPK (Instrument pack (IPK from the German)), just glowing red.
Would these draw too much power and drain the battery? Would wiring them in this way be too complex? I ask the experts as my electrical knowledge is limited.
