Moss car alarm

Post by TONYT25T25 »

I fitted a Moss Car alarm sometime back, mainly because they are so easy to fit.  Its has various functions one of which is flashing the headlights or indicators when arming and disarming or when triggered.  The activation of the lights lasted for some time but later failed.  I measured the voltage during the triggering and arming process which pulses but is below 12v. Any ideas on how this could be rectified would be most welcome.

It's a bit of a faff, but you could use the outputs to switch relays for each circuit. Just a few volts at very low current is enough to fire a relay.

Hi, tks  I was thinking of relays, there are two output wires which are said to connect to either the indicators or lights, I wonder if I could combine both outputs to one relay and then onto the indicators or lights.

I would think two relays, one each side on the indicators circuits, but use one alarm output on each.
