    Hi all, newbie to the forums. I have a 12 volt led bar designed for use as a third brake light. I want to make it flash so as to be more noticeable. It has 30 led's with built in resistors and runs on 12vdc. Is there a 555 circuit that will let me blink these lights.
    Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.
