    If what's required to make the ECU happy is 0.5V-0.9V referenced to ground then my suggestion was that it could be simply generated without an O2 sensor at all if one were so inclined and oblivious...

    If you were wanting to 'fake' a good stable voltage then a forward biassed silicon diode (with a series resistor) should provide a constant voltage in the desired range. Not that I'm suggesting...

    Just about all the data like contacts, your phone number etc should be on the Sim card so it is as easy as just plugging the Sim into another phone which then becomes your phone with all your...

    Be careful when taking pictures over there - I heard they get a bit upset by visitors with cameras.

    Take it easy and we'll save a seat for your return :)

    6 and 7 pin trailer sockets should have an auxiliary fused 12V supply available but whether it's been wired in is another matter. A typical setup involves a voltage detecting relay that connects the...

    Seems to be some inconsistency across the regions nationally.
    Here in Tas, 9Gem was HD from the start but reverted to SD a while back and 9HD became 9's single HD channel. A fair amount of sport is...

    I've found the Cancer Council sunnies (at <$50) to be as good, if not better, than others at polarizing light regardless of cost. The price of expensive options tends to be based on 'fashion' and...

    It was all about antennas, well visible ones that is. Explains why the old house I bought in Sydney some decades ago had the TV antenna set up in the ceiling cavity under the tile roof :)

    You can weld Al with MIG DCEP and Argon but I found it a really messy weld. What you need for Al is AC TIG with balance adjustment and maybe even variable frequency as well which makes the machine...

    With a basic idea of the required minimum ratings (voltage, current, on resistance) a bit of browsing at Element14 should turn up a list of candidates in the right package (TO220 or TO247 etc). Does...

    You can make a pretty good guess as long as you know what voltage they're switching IE if the fet(s) are switching rectified mains 240V RMS the peak voltage will be around 315V DC so you need at...

    One of those things that might be useful some day has actually served its purpose :)
    Circuit looks extremely similar so shouldn't be a problem to wire it in even if only temporarily for testing
