I've got a late(ish) Scaley Porsche 935 (C431 I think) which is supposed to have working lights. It's got all the gubbins, but they don't. Work, that is.
I can see how the headlamps work, and why they don't (the little grain-of-wheat bulb has long since met its maker). However, the tail lights mystify me somewhat. They're LEDs, fed through a fairly simple circuit board. They flashed occasionally when I applied a 9V battery across the motor, but not consistently, or in any way that allowed me to determine what was making them do it.
It would help if I knew how they were supposed to behave. Are they supposed to be lit constantly, as tail lights? Or are they supposed to only come on when the throttle is closed, as brake lights? The capacitors on the circuit board suggest the latter, but, although I'm not a total bozo with regard to electronics, I'm having difficulty deciding what the circuit board does. As I've never seen one of these cars in full working order, any advice would be appreciated. I've got a similarly wired, and similarly non-functional, Jag XJR, so it would be handy to know how these work.
Thanks in advance.
