I'll try and get a picture to upload later this evening. I wired it up exactly as your picture (I printed it and used it as a reference even). I will also try switching the 15k resistor to a 20k when I get home. Thank you!
Okay, I'm having major issues wiring up the voltage divider.I have an LJ18A3-8-Z/BX I ordered from Amazon. Before wiring in any resistors, I get 12.4V from the Gnd wire and 0V off/12.2V on for the signal (Vout) wire. Then I wired in a 15k resistor to the Vout and 10k from Vout to Gnd. With this configuration, I get a constant 8.8V on the Vout and 12.2V when it is activated.I'm sure I'm missing something simple, but I've been at it 2 days already and I'm getting frustrated. Read all the comments, double checked all the diagrams here and watched the video.
