Custom RGB LED Turn Signals For Car

Custom RGB LED Turn Signals for My Car @ Starfire’s Tech Blog via .

Just wanted to throw this up here.  Been working on some RGB LED turn signals for my car (2008 Mustang GT/CS) I’m using the Adafruit pixels http://www.adafruit.com/products/307 for them, there are 35 in each light. Why you may ask?  First off why not!  Second I take my car to cay shows and just like to have someone unique that I made myself.  Third I had bought some LED bulbs that were advertised to match the stock headlights in color but they are far from it, they ended up very blue like a typical white LED, I was guessing they used warm whites but I was wrong so after making some tail lights for my dads car I figured why not do the same to mine. Anyways here is a video that give info and how they look, I’ll post more as they come along. (Picture of car at end of video!)


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Hehe, thanks for the blog post! Adafruit has supplied me with a lot of parts in the last couple weeks, most of it is or will end up in this project!

    Thanks!

  2. Thanks for the post! Been ordering a lot of parts from adafruit and most of them are or will end up in this project!

    Thanks for all the awesome stuff!!

  3. With full credit granted for a good looking build, I’m reasonably certain that changing the color of your turn signals is illegal. Having any blue lights whatsoever visible from outside your vehicle can in particular get you in trouble here in the United States.

    Of course, the nice thing about RGB is that you can program them to be standard colors on the street, and then have fun with them at car shows…which actually isn’t a bad idea at all.

  4. Yes, very true, so standard operation is white marker lights and amber turn signals, but when parked at a car show anything can go.
