Thanks Kevin and Paul,
How would I set up the reed switch to turn on the LEDs by passing a magnet
over the car, and then turning them off by passing the magnet over the car a
second time? I plan to use 3v coin cell batteries to power a couple of LEDs,
but I need to be able to turn them off when the session is complete.
