Smile Re: Brake Light?

Ok I see that this is an old thread but just to try to help this is what I done for brake lights and turn signals I bought 30cm/15LED SMD 3528 Red Flexible Led Strip Light Waterproof DC 12V and then bought a Universal Motorcycle Bike Quad Pit Scooter ATV Tail Rear Brake Stop Light Switch they work great and the best you can make for the money. For my turn signals I bought 4x 30cm 15LED SMD 3528 Yellow Flexible Led Strip Light Waterproof DC12V then I bought Motorcycle triple combination turn signal switch horn headlight switch for 7/8 Bars and a 3 Pin CF13 Car Flasher Relay to Fix LED Light Blink Flash. That made up my blinkers I run them off of 8X AA DIY Battery Holder that and my relay is in a Plastic Electronics Enclosure or Project Box 4x3x1.6 in that is mounted to my Rear rack. All items can be bought on Ebay real cheap

Im working on a self contained 12v lighting system.

So, a 12v jell cell and off the shelf automotive/motercycle lighting equipment.

Now.. to the purpose of the the thread, im working on a LED brake light that uses a $7 harbor freight submersible trailer indicator lamp.
The circuit is very simple.. two 4005 diodes, and a 550 1/2 watt resistor.
Activating the brake light function is accomplished with a roller blade switch.
So... take banded sides of the diodes and pig tail them. On one side of them, tie in the resistor, and from there the positive side of the battery.
Hook up the negative side and the lamp should light up at half voltage.

Now.. on the other diode, run that through the N.O. side of the switch. And hook up the common side of the switch back to the common hot wire.

When you press the switch, the lamp will get supplied with full voltage and will be fully illuminated.
