Some cars came with just plain, translucent 3rd brake lights. There are many creative colours out there where you can tint them into. Some people like them smoked with dark tints, some are more creative with colours. Whatever it is, just make sure that the 3rd brake lights are visible and still maintain it RED to serve it’s purpose.
Here’s the visual guide on how to make your own tinted 3rd brake lights. Continue reading “Tinting 3rd Brake Lights” »
Arduino projects and DIY kits are another interesting topic KakiDIY is looking into, you might heard about these and also wonder how to start up your own Arduino project. KakiDIY with it’s resident Arduino Guru will be here to help you! So… what is Arduino?
Arduino is a tool for making computers that can sense and control more of the physical world than your desktop computer. It’s an open-source physical computing platform based on a simple microcontroller board, and a development environment for writing software for the board.

Most cars (Japanese Cars) these days somehow don’t come with any audible beeps when you lock or unlock the car via remote. Some manufacturer even reverted to use the car’s horn as an audible signal to indicate door locks/alarm activation which is kinda annoying.
My first draft was sketched on my SmartPhone.. but it was just a sketch so I redo it in PowerPoint… (the next available tool I had on my new notebook) Continue reading “Door Lock Beeps” »
I had this unit of Deizin Voltage Stabilizer. Which was installed in my old car and will be installed over to another car. As I was taking this unit out, I found out that the circuit looked simple.. so I decided to trace the circuit to be able to remake one with a higher capacitor for even more stable electric current.

The basics of any electrical circuit is to have electric current complete a round trip from +VE to -VE of the power source; in this case, the car battery or the alternator +VE point and the -VE are usually grounded to the car body.
Sometimes, the connections are not conducting well especially when aged and contact points get corroded. Additional grounding cables are needed to help improve electrical performance in the car.
This article will measure the resistance value of a NEW car and the results after grounding. Continue reading “Grounding : Fundamental” »
