Hello everyone. I am working on a project where I control my cars interior brake light with a transistor hooked up to an Arduino. I hooked up the transistor to an LED first to make sure the circuit worked properly and it does. Every time I push a button, the LED turns on and when I release it, it turns of. I switched out the 9V battery I was using to power the LED and swapped it with the power and ground that were powering the cars interior brake light. I then swapped the led out with the cars brake light and tried it, but nothing happened. I thought maybe I was not making a proper connection somewhere so I swapped the brake light with a multimeter, and sure enough there was 12V going through it. Does anyone have any idea why the light might not be turning on? Could the transistor not be allowing enough AMPS through? Any help would be really appreciated!
