I know it's been asked before, but I'm looking for some additional help.
I want to add a LED to the A-pillar (most likely) so that it's in my line of sight to alert when the LI is jamming.
I only want it to light up if jamming, so I believe I need to use the auto-mute wire from the LI as ground, and a 12v source to the other LED.
Now here are my questions...
1) Can I just tap into the 12v wire going to the LI CPU box? That way I don't have to run another wire all the way to the actual 12v source (cigarette lighter) which means a lot of taking trim off, etc.
2) If I can tap into the power wire going to the LI CPU box, which one is it, connection 2 or 6 in the LI diagram? They both state 12v source, just for switch 1 and switch 2.
3) Does anyone have any recommendation on LED and housing I could use for this? Being able to just stick it on the A-pillar would be great. I'd rather not drill/cut into the trim, but if I have to then I will. Any recommendations would be great as obviously I'm a newbie.
4) I saw talks of putting a resistor or transistor or flux capacitor in between the LED and 12v source. Is this needed?
Thanks a ton!
