PNP transistor not pulling up completely : what is wrong in my schematic?

You probably have q1 connected the wrong way round try turning it round so the emitter is connected to 12.6V. You can solve this without using a MOSFET but for most switching applications a MOSFET ...

PNP transistor not pulling up completely : what is wrong in my schematic?

The switch doesn't pull the base all the way down, it make a voltage divider 10/3,3 resulting at approx. 9 V at the base. To solve this, remove R2, and move R1 and D1 up before the emitter (to avoid ...
