Using AC to operate a automotive 12 VDC relay Answered
My question is: can a typical 12 vdc automotive relay be operated
(voltage across terminals 85-86)?
I am building a car from a riding lawn mower for our grandson. I want to operate lights from the 12 VDC circuit but I need a signal voltage to actuate the relay across relay terminals 85-86. I would like to use the existing AC powered light(s) voltage for this purpose? Possible?
