It's been a good few years since I did any electronics, so I'm a bit shaky.
I want to drive some LEDs with a FET, driven off a GPIO pin. I'm going to sink the current through the FET. I would also like to have a manual over-ride switch so I can switch them on myself. I'd like to this so there doesn't have to be power to the controller to do this (so I'm not going to do it by pulling the input high for example).
Is it acceptable to just pull the output down with the manual override? Will it fry the component? Picture attached.
12v rail, 2-ish amps drain for LEDs. This is for a unit which has its own current-limiting resistors.
