          Seems like that geocites site has been slashdotted mp3car.com style
          Have you got the details saved?

              Mastero:

              How were you thinking about implementing the hardware for this? This is something that I was wanting to do in my vehicle also. The only problem is that all off the functions are controlled by air tubes of some sort. I see no way to solve this with relays, unless there is some kind of electrically controlled valve that I can splice in to the system. Just wondering what you were thinking.

              Thanks,
              Quincy

                there are such things as electrically controlled valves but you could probably get away with servos

                  jones ..

                  I have a mercedes and the blower of the aircon is not cotrolled with the vacum system of the car....

                  So all i have to do is jump the wires to the relay board and it shall controll the A/C ..


                  Only major problem is with ME i can use ME and the relay software seperatly that means every time i want to make the A/c slow the music goes off
