I need to replace my 12VDC (bulb based) brake lights but I am unable to find a three-function light (Running/Brake/Off) with the same specs. I did however find a two-function light LED fixture (ON/OFF) with the exact same dimension.
Similar to these:
I want to install the two-function LED based light brake in my car but using it as a three-function light.
I thought of building a small circuit that gives the light fixture max 50% on each wire using a resistor and adding a potentiometer for configurable dimming.
So when the car is running the LED light gets max 6V via wire1, and when I brake, it get max 12V via both wire1 + wire2.
Does this approach make sense? Can you suggest anything else?
If it does, I have no idea how to build that circuit starting from my three wires, as simple as it sounds.
