I want to make light dimmer for my car to use as daytime running lights (now required here by law), and I found this:
What do you think about this design?
Each headlight bulb is fused separately, and both are grounded at the headlight housing. So I need to do some modifications to the circuit. Can I just add another power mosfet, and connect it to the pin 3 of 555 (to the same pin as existing one)?
And, since both H1 headlight bulbs are grounded I have can I just connect +12V to the pin 2 at the mosfet, and put the bulb between the pin 3 and ground? Or do I have to use different mosfet?
BTW I couldn't find MTP3055E locally, so I bought BUZ60.
As you can see I am electronics newbie, so go easy on me :-)
