Ok my friends. I know you all have been waiting for this.
Without further delay, i confirm 3rd Brake light flasher module 100% opperational! (with a few tweeks)
There are several modes.
Mode 1: Burst Mode > Fast pulsing 3 flashes then constant on
Mode 2: Burst Mode > Fast pulsing 3 flashes then 6 sec steady on then repeat
Video clip of Mode 2 > Burst mode
Mode 3: Flash Mode > Fast 3 flashes then constant on
Mode 4: Flash Mode > Fast 3 flashes then 6 sec steady on then repeat
Video clip of Mode 4 > Flash mode
Modes can be switched via small dip switches on the module and easy to work with.
There are a few tweeks that i need to work out. Resistors will be needed, however the min amount of resistance i still don't have. I used the resistor i had from my side marker lights from the old car just for the test.
Also need to work out where to place the resistor(it gets hot), an easy connect method without cutting wires... and a price for all this joy.
However the first few kits i think i will just charge parts and put them together, maybe setup a donation fund
This will be the 1st "Kleyman Module"
and hopeing it will be usable on any Mercedes Benz 3rd break light LED or Standard.
Installation time on R171 SLK will be about 20min-30min. (actual time...I just did mine in that time, and i had wires hanging everywhere. so a clean final version will be less) Skill level = well if you can change a light bulb, you can install this module
And if you can't... i can do it for you in the NY/NJ Area
So while i am working out the kinks, Who's on the waiting list???
Please PM me if you are interested!
