The trick is to flash an empty sketch to the TinkerKit LCD. The timing is a bit tricky but it works well enough. When I have time I'll see if I can make cheap units using an ebay arduino nano, a cheap eBay LCD, and a postage stamp of PCB for the BJT, zeners, and resistors. It looks like the minimum BOM is $8 without case.

Is there any reason I wouldn't be able to add some code to do an analog read of my dashboard lamp rheostat voltage and have the micro controller adjust PWM based on dashboard brightness?

Hardware-wise, you'd have to add a voltage divider to condition your instrument panel lighting signal to be less than 5VDC, then feed it to one of the analog input pins. You'd want to also add a 5 VDC Zener diode to the pin for circuit protection. The circuit would look similar to this:



The resistor values would have to be adjusted, but that should be easy enough to do.

Software/Arduino-wise, this capability could easily enough be added in. My code already has analog input reading capability built into it - not sure if the original DCB 0.86 (or earlier) code would allow/accept Analog library calls. I'd just have to provision in a way of assigning an unused analog pin for use with brightness.

I got the analog gauge driver code added in, but haven't been able to find any time to test it.

Well, then... I guess I can no longer edit the first post of this thread!

Time to start another workspace thread!

Thanks for your work done, but it does not work with nozzles, peak and hold, I found a sketch. It works, could you add this algorithm to your code?
As well as add voltmert
Excuse me writing serz translator
