Hello that, as always today I bring you a very simple way of tuning the lighter of a Chery Orinoco or A3 in a very simple way that you can easily do at home.
Usually in the economic models of this car has all the wiring for the lighting of the lights of the buttons of the board, suiches of electric windows, lighter among others, only that they do not place the lights. Then with a bit of expertise and my help they can make a very good personalization that will not take more than a couple of hours.
For my case I wanted to do in addition to lighting the lighter, achieve a heat effect inside the lighter. This I will illuminate with red color the chromed interior where the lighter goes.
- Two LEDs (Color you want)
- A resistance of 680ohms 1 / 4W
- A resistance of 10k ohms 1 / 4W
- Rigid cables, tin and a soldering iron.
1.- Remove 3 screws that hold the igniter console and shift lever.
- Two forward under the black carpet
- One below the ash deposit
2.- Pull the back part firmly upwards until it loosens.
3.- Then take out the ring that holds the lever cover up.
4.- Finally disconnect the cigarette lighter connector and remove the console.
Below I leave the video of how I did it, there is step by step how to make this modification
In the following figure you can see the meaning of each lighter terminal seen from above.
There are the two main terminals with positive and negative to energize the lighter plus two more that are positive that comes from the switchboard of lighting control of the board.
Important! The load for this light terminal must always be LEDs, do not place incandescent lights or it could damage the control unit.
It is quite simple and the following figure speaks for itself.
The LED that has the resistance of 10 k ohms should illuminate the acrylic, this is very important because with this resistance we ensure that we work with the intensity control of the light switchboard. If we put another value; or it will light too much, or it will light very little besides that it will not diminish the intensity as in the other lights.
The LED that has the resistance of 680 ohms we place it to shine into the lighter, to give the effect of heat on.
Protect the cables of the circuit so there are no short circuits.
Do not confuse the resistances to achieve the desired effect.
Arrange the cables and LEDs so that they do not touch the metal part of the lighter, as it will heat up and damage them.
Well, it's all for today. I have nothing left to do but wait.
Well, it's all for today and I hope you like this proposal. Remember that if you have any suggestions or questions, below is the box for it. As you can see it is quite simple to do and really the work is worth it and more if the cost is almost nothing.
