Tamirm1  : (18 December 2014 - 09:53 PM) Thanks to everyone. Yes, I did pull the fuses out one at a time, and one of them was the correct one. The only problem is t that I fumbled two fuses, dropping them into the bottom of the fuse area, and even with nose pliers cannot reach them. That wouldn't be terrible, but they must have been important because now my trusty car won't start. Won't turn over completely! Anyway, everything is hard when you don't know what you are doing. Luckily, I can use my daughter's car (out of country for a few more days) to go down to my nice, fair, very elderly mechanic, and ask if he can please work on it ASAP, once I get it towed to him (10 miles away). You all were very nice, and I appreciate it. By the way, I love my car, and will stick with Hyundai when I am able to buy a new car.
Tamirm1  : (18 December 2014 - 07:08 PM) Can anyone tell me which fuse is the brake light for a 2005 Accent?

Shedding a bit of light off Rovio

Icon Leave Comment
I have a Rovio Mobile webcam. It is a pretty cool toy. However it's lighting is not nearly bright enough. I trippled the light by adding a copule of LEDs to it. Here's how I did it.


This is my rovio disassembled. You can see the circuit board which is glued in place there. It takes the original lighting circuit and draws power from a separate source. It's a transistor which is hooked directly to the battery and uses the original LED power wire as a signal wire. The new wire is routed up the neck of the Rovio Mobile webcam.

Here is a closeup of the small transistor circuit board.

The LEDs were positioned in the head right where they should be, on either side of the webcam.

Here you can see my phone controlling the Rovio and a picture of my hands holding the camera on the phone, controlling my rovio mobile camera.

It was a fun project.
