    The hardware depends on the make and model of your car. As far as generic software, I'm not aware of any, but the code to emulate a couple knobs and sliders is cake. It's hooking it up to the car's hardware that makes the project a bit more difficult, but there are a few people here working on it.

        I am working on a similar project right now!!
        HVAC control.. Neon, door, windows controls etc..
        Also the background will change when lights turn on, doors open, night (with light sensor) etc etc..
        Also parking door control...

        The buttons havea push-effect...


        Ignore the empty boxes..

                    There is no update in the software.. Right now I am fabricating (the first screen)...

                    I will update it as soon as I install the screen and PC...!!
                    But for now it is fully functional..
                    A/C controls, alarm, garage door opener, neon lights and I am working on controlling the stiffness on the shock absorbers!!

                      That's freakin' awesome. I can't wait to see it in action. That will help me feel more confident when I get started...

                          Replace them with something computer controlled.
