    I am working on my nephews vehicle. I have the circuit for it all done, except for one problem.

    I need to change the flashing of the lights into a steady 12 volts. The switches are grounded, and when activated, they alternate from 0 volts to 12 volts. I can't have it flashing, it is messing up my circuit.

    I've spent two days trying to make a circuit to work using a Missing Pulse Detector circuit, but I can't seem to make any of them I can find work.

    My nephew has taken the bed off his truck and made it into a flatbed and has purchased some new LED lights for it. He wants me to make a circuit so the lights flash much like the new Mustangs do when the turn signals are activated.

    The circuit consists of a 555 timer and a 4017 counter.

    I have the circuit finished, except in order for it to operate correctly, I need to have a steady 12 volts come from the turn signal switch. I've pulled the dash apart, and the wires are pulsing.

    Any Help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
