This is something i've been messing around with for a while, and I thought I'd share it.
I decided to build an arduino based control box to act as my mini's "brain". I want it to control all the lights and potentially the heater.
So far, I have a box that will be connected to my steering column, which houses the arduino. Then a larger fuse/relay box where the switching happens.
The arduino talks to the relay box over I2C.
Pressing the headlight button once gives side lights, press again for main lights and once more to turn them off.
One button turns the rear fog light on, another button for the front fogs and one for the hazards.
I found some lovely billet aluminium switches in china and am intending to use them to switch things.
I am going to use the standard indicator stalks for left and right.
I have it set so if you press the hazard button with the system powered down, a standard flasher unit takes over to avoid any issues with the MOT.
It'd be great to hear your thoughts.
