    Prism light hacking?

    I picked up a set of blue led prism spotlights for £10 but realised it uses a controler, each spotlight has 4 connectors for it so I was wondering if anyone has hacked them to use without the crummy controller?

    Set them all on constant,
    Sets them flashing,
    flashes in sequence,
    Other crappy stuff.
    I just want them on constant all the time the car is switched on.

    in that case, it's just a logic switch inside the 'controller'
    You can discard it. Just bridge all the LED's and give them a power source via a switch and the job's done.

    Might be worth checking what voltage they should be running at but if it's designed to run off the car, then it shouldn't be a problem.

    Thats the problem, I can't find information on the light units.
