Hi Allen, Followed here from you youtube video about the nr2003 dashboard. Great work. Wanna build me a unit I'll supply the dash(lol). I'm a mechanic and live for Nascar Racing 2003 only have basic electronic skills.

Hi Charlie,

Sorry for the delay in response. That project was just featured on Hacked Gadgets and was not actually constructed by me. There should be a link in the article that will lead to additional information.

Hi Alan

well, it seems that the only fault seems to be me!! The test procedure was very useful for me to comprehend how the system worked as I haven't studied your design yet.

I went through test procedure and it worked all OK
I then hooked it back in and it didn't work. hmmm, tested continuity of cables, all OK
I then went through hooking up each led and testing it with jumpers in place on the board. all leds worked.
I then hooked up the IR and tested it and it worked.

Obviously human error factor working against me.

I have them setup on spiral stairs and they work great. Now all i have to do is drill the holes and mount them permanently .

Thanks for making this project!

Good to hear it is functioning again. Sounds like a cool set of stairs!

Got the stair light kit, pre assembled, tested it on bench, worked great. Wired up into stairs, and went through setup mode worked great. powered down, disconnected setup wire and powered up but nothing works now, only the green light. checked all connections and they seem good. Is it possible to harm the chip by handling the board (when i disconnected the setup wire). i have tried setup mode again but that doesn't work either. what should i do now?

Hi Dayna,

Sorry to hear you are having some troubles. Please disconnect all wires and try the controller test procedure again and let me know what the results are.

Most excellent light display. "I love to see the imager scanner" up close. I am just amazed that such detailed lettering could be visible with so few LED's, Continuosly amazed,

Thanks Lou,

Which display are you referring to? The rotating LED display?

Hey Alan,
Love the lights in the stair case.They look even better up close. As I said I will purchase them for my house. The clock is wild I have to come over again and have a closer look. This is my first visit to this site I will be back.

Awesome Stuff!

Thanks. We will have to get the stair lighting controller in your house this summer.

Hi Ala,

Just found your site. I'm really impressed. I have some home additions being done and I thought about LEDs on the stairway. Can you buy the parts to install an LED system like your videos show? Where?

Hi Ray,

Sounds like that was on Hacked Gadgets, it was just pictures and not build instructions...

Your cat deserves a big fish! This is exactly what I've been looking for and the price is purrrrrfect! I have a basement home theater but the builders only installed a single pole switch at the TOP of the stairs. My son sleeps (lives?) in a room down there too and more often than not leaves the light on because he doesn't want to go back down the stairs in the dark. What I spend in parts to build this will be paid for the first two months it's in operation.
Well done!
