    Hi people.
    Im looking for a way to count the pulses from a reed switch which can turn of a indicator on my m/c. Pref. Small in size. I can get a timed switch but its distance i need. So it wont stop the flasher when im at traffic lights. Ideas? Thanks. G.

    Easiest to get a small microcontroller which can debounce the switch, count pulses and issue an on/off signal.
    An ATTinyxx would sufice, but the learning curve is steep!

    Car indicators turn off via a mechanism linked to the steering.

    Just took it to be Motor Car...pays to be more specific.
    However, motorcycles also use a pulse driven indicator cancelling device as standard.
    Or perhaps it's a microcontroller......??
