Hey, I had a diagram using a 555 Timer to do the same thing... I just never have taken the time to build it... you beat me to it!!!

Did you make yourself a board to put it all on?

Easy way out? No, you must make things overly complicated so that they cause more problems than are necessary and cause general headaches for everybody involved. Just like Microsoft :)

I just hand wired it on a blank PC board and fit it into a really small plastic box I got at Radio Shack. I don't have a digital camera so I couldn't take any pix, sorry :(

I haven't taken the dash apart, yet. I'll just live with the bright TCS and CRUISE lights for now. That may be a project for warmer weather :)

Could you tell me which one you used? I know they got a few universal ones...

You buy all your components from the Shack?

Matter of fact, any way you could get me your diagram?

Now that you've done it, I gotta try it...
