amplifying signal from board to noid?

I already asked this in VW but I thought I would ask you too to see if anyone who makes completely own markers can help me.

So the thing is i have a UL (apparently a v3.0 since it is yellow) board that outputs something like 6,5-6,75V that I want to fire off a inspire nano (DP G3) noid that apparently draws a bit more juice.

How can I achieve this? connecting a capacitor in paralell wiht the board? do i need to add a transistor (mosfet?) that is triggered by the board and then fires off the noid?

any and all help appreciated.

I do believe you can do it using a MOSFET or Capacitor using a rectifying diode, or at least it is feasible.

There is a fellow on www.simonized.com that might be able to help you more than I can. My understanding of electronics is decent, but still very crude.

You need to send it the full 9V. Just putting a MOSFET on the output of the stock solenoid connector won't work. You have two easy options:

1. Install a 5V relay with the coil across the stock noid connector. The put 9V to your new noid, and use the NO and common pins of the relay to power the new noid.

2. Tap into the 5V signal line of the chip and send that to a MOSFET. The put 9V through your new noid and use the MOSFET to fire it..

3. Use a UTB to run your marker

^^ There you have it, if Damonwill says it's so - it's so.
