  • Hi there, sorry for the late replyThis item as in picture, it needs 3xAAA power, so it's not connected to the car's powerI have no idea about the current but I can check it out, if I put a multimeter and try to power that led(I still to remove it from the car thought... it's "glued" with a double-sided tape, so I won't have to be near the door trying to hold the batteries/multimeter and check the display :P) - As far as I know in the past these were "rated" at 1W ..not sure if it's true, Chinese sellers claim anythingWith AO(analog output) when no light 4.25v(a 18650 source - 4.25v currently), when strong light hits the module it's about 3.4-3.7v on DO it's 4.25v no change ..weird but that's the resultsThe magnetic switch works as it should but the led-door shouldn't...

Thank you for your replies

  • "Moreover the reason why you want this is simply to conserve battery energy, and thus, the money+time it costs to replace the batteries." yes"Do you leave your car door open for hours at a time? During daylight hours?" No but I do open the door frequently so the batteries discharge for no reason"I am also wondering why you want to litter the pavement, and other people's minds, with the worship of these awful advertising logos?" Litter? well more visibility, so better safety especially in a dark alley plus the fact that it's cool to have a seat logo(my car is a seat) - No different than a luxury car which doesn't project a logo but lights up the pavement"Have you had any success adjusting your light sensor module, so it can tell the difference between d...

The voltage on that pin probably goes low, or high, at the same time the LED is on or off. It would be helpful to know which."Did that already, the AO for 4.78v is 3.78v and for the DO it's the same 4.78v input 4.78v output - I need a switch not a light detection heh - Whatever the draw is, surely it's lower than when the led is active(the device has a powerful led)

    Tips to reduce electrical noise.

    Tried that in my cars back camera(I've put that myself) but doesn't really workTo be honest I'm searching everywhere and no one has ever solved my problem, I do get noise to my android head-radio unit(replaced my factory one) but not that much, if I touch the brakes? well I hear a tiny buzz(as long as I hold the brakes-and the android unit is powered on) from the speakers and the rear camera signal is lost.The last solution I could think of is to put a relay-switch and use an extra battery in the trunk so when I put reverse gear it would get a signal from the reverse light and get power from the extra battery(no noise at all)If you just wondering what brand is my car, it's a Seat Ibiza 1.2 SC TDI E-ecomotive(2012/03)P.S. The electrical noise is also a problem for a mini sub I've tried t...

The electrical noise is also a problem for a mini sub I've tried to put under the passengers seat(drawing power from the cigarette lighter) ...you can hear the rpm's of the engine from the subwoofer(which is rather annoying)
