    How about this. If someone is good enough to program such a program for us, we'd pay them. I wouldn't mind putting down $100 for something that I want.

    It could be universal. Say like we'd have to supply voltages, resitances etc. my old car wants a digital tach/speedo

    I'm also looking for a monitoring of the car... (I also have an old car...) Computer for the music and movies is good... But a computer for the car is better!!
    There is one or two projects in france for that (based on pics..) but they spend too much time to being concretized...
    So I guess I'll do it myself...

    @Confused, I've also heard about Hall effect sensors and that seems to be the best...
    What about VVIO.dll?? I program in VB (me too) and I imagine that it'd be good if you can tell me more about that... Is it an "interfacing" dll which allows you to get IO informations?

    Moreover I'll be really interested to devellop a sort of AI for the car. For example, a rain captor which would start the windscreen wipers when it rains (don't know how to say that) the same idea for lights when it's gooing to be the night... I have other ideas in this way but to hard to tell you all!!! (Sorry I'll try again one more time if you're interested)

    this would be right up your alley. (spelling)

    http://www.seetron.com/ssc.htm

    You can buy that and program it in VB. You can control up 8 servo's very easy.

    is the vb dll.

    at a touch of a button you can control your A/C, heater, wipers etc.

    Thanks... will be fun... But I don't think it'll be useful for the moment (maybe for a motorised screen ?? ) For lights or wipers simply use a pic with a ??? I don't know the english for, simply an interuptor which works only if it had power in... (In french a "relai" - relay???) Works as a amp's remote...
    So when the pic receive 5v pulse on an input, you program it to send continuous 5V to the "relai" and by this way yours wipers (for example) will work. It's the same for light...
    For heater, it don't work as yours I guess on a beetle... Because it's only on or off...
    Sorry but I don't understand what A/C meens??... I realize that mp3car it's a good way to improve my english... I'm sorry nevertheless to ask so much definitions...
