I have been playing with arduino boards for my car already. for intelligent fan control and separate board for autolamps. I now wish to add remote start to my project car and one day would like to remove the a/c control head from my vehicle. and maybe even the ignition switch. because my car has an aftermarket engine controller with general purpose input/outputs, and the cheap aftermarket alarm in my car has a provision for trunk release my car doesn't have, creating remote start will be incredibly easy. I think an ultimate end goal for this controller would be to remove all switches, dials, levers, buttons, etc. from the interior. they have small 3 and 4" touchscreens for arduino boards, and I could configure one of these for climate control, power windows, or even password input for ignition key delete. but all that is down the road. for initial install the controller will run headlights, fans, and remote start. so far, I have determined pin requirements and pin assignments, setup a breadboard with leds, pots, buttons, and switches where I will later wire relays, sensors, and other inputs for writing and testing software(sketch), and that is where I am, now. copying the autolamp control, and even fan control I already wrote is done, and I am working on remote start. this is my test rig
