Mind over Money
^I used the TIP42 and it works great..I used a 470ohm resistor though, but I don't think it will make that much of a difference.
Pb said:The only thing I deleted was the first attempt at this mod, which was using a relay instead of a transistor. Using a transistor is much better and actually easier than using a relay. Just read through the thread a few times, and look at pics. You'll figure it out.
Yes, I suppose you could do that.ceez said:ok i hooked up the map ligthts to work in conjunction with the dome light now if i want to make the dome light come on when the door opens and not the map lights can i put like a kill switch on the wire that runs from the dome to the transismiter ? what i mean by a kill swithch is a on off switch ?
Naw, the transistor won't get that hot. They reach a certain temp and then level off. They don't keep getting hotter as time goes on.ceez said::clap: just finished the mod works awsome !! :whatwhat: i used the tip42 transistor and the 330 resistor both from radio shack . i hooked it up so it works in conjunction with the dome light , i do have one question if anybody can input that would be great just have one concern what if i leave the door open for awhile like 30 minutes will the transistor get hot and fry or is thing just working for second till its next command?
