[DML] Re: interior lamps won't turn off

Absolutely right, the white delay module can't work with the
LEDs, it is simply impossible from the design they chose.
Even if it is quite tricky, it is 80s design and and it does 
not even say BOSCH on it....

But I also have something positive:
I am currently working on a new PCB for the white delay module
that works with the LED's. I currently have around five orders
from the german owners, but I could build more of them if
you guys are interested.
At the moment I am still playing around with a prototype
to make sure it works like I want it - not like it used
to work the last six years I owned the car...

What I want to sell is just the little PCB that goes into 
the original white module. Anybody who can hold a solder 
iron should be able to replace that. Also I need an extra wire
to the connector as I need a +12V connection to make this 
thing work reliable - not like the original one !
of course a simple and detailed description will come with 
it or is going to be online by then.

The price will be somewhere between 10 and 20 bucks plus 
shipping, depending on the price for the bare PCB. 

Again - they are not available yet, this may take another 
few weeks, but I need some motivation to do this work, 
five pieces ist not enough to get a useful price for the PCBs.

Also note - this will not improve the speed or power of 
you car, it will not use less gas, the tires are unaffected,
the car won't look better and you will still need to use the
same oil, air filter, spark plugs/wires as before.
All it does is delay the interior light between 5 and 10 
seconds before it is dimmed down smoothly.

Interested ? then please send me an email.
