This is my first time at this forum and I have a question that is auto related. I am enrolled in a basic electrical automotive class at the local community college and can't figure out one of our assignments. I need to create a circuit of two lights that flash opposite of each other (wig-wag). I've done a lot of web searching and I think I will need an oscillator and a couple of relays to make this work. Can anyone provide some guidance on this for me?

Thanks,
dmend

I know there's an intro soldering kit out there that creates a little siren with two wig wag-ing LEDS, you might find that helpful.

you could use a turn signal flasher to switch a relay on and off with one light connected to the normally open contact and one to the normally closed contact. this way when the flasher turns on the relay opens and lights one light then when the flasher shuts off the relay closes up and turns the other light on as the first turns off and then the process repeats itself.

it would be rather loud with all that clicking from the relay and flasher but it would work.
