Hi everyone, Not sure if this has been covered before (I couldn't find anything) but my Evora had one sidelight much dimmer than the other and I managed to fix it. Everything I found online

Thanks - hope it helps someone.

 

The PCB is pretty simple and I took some measurements while it was out, so if there's demand I could make new PCBs (that weren't £230!). It feels like there's really no need for the fancy aluminium PCB - it draws very little power (200mA at 12v) so there's not a bunch of heat being dissipated. The fancy PCB is probably making the lights *more* likely to fail because of all the expansion/contraction.

You know what that board needs adding? Some high power infra-red LEDs, "illumination for your dashcam at night". 904nm would probably do. They'd need to be pulse width modulated "to save on current and stop them overheating". Nudge, nudge. Wink, wink.

 

(not serious)
