Step 2: Hacking the GE- 35 Lights

The first thing to do is to modify your lights so that they will work with the arduino. I chose to follow austinlightguy's instructions on his website which worked well for me. You of course can do whatever you want, but make sure that the stock light controllers data line is not connected when your arduino is to the lights or you may end up frying something or getting interference between the two.

Can you power the lights and the arduino from the same five volt supply?
