    I have some questions and couldn't take a week off work to read 66 pages.

    1. If I order just the board, will it be everything I need to hook it up to a fully working air ride suspension setup? Or are there some USB cables and stuff I have to order separately?

    2. Which gauge wire would I need to run to the battery for this? And will it draw any type of current when the car is off to kill the battery?

    3. How do I hook it to things like my windows? I mean without spoon feeding me, do I have to run wires to all the actuators or is there a simple way to plug it into the harness? Trunk release same way? Lights? Other things?

    1.) If you order just the board, you just get the board. There are options to add USB cables and relays. I do not know the details of your air ride suspension setup, so I cannot answer questions about how to connect it.

    2.) 16gauge is fine.

    3.) The board will draw about 70mA with all the outputs off. If this is a concern, I would suggest connecting it to an accessory circuit. With relays on all the outputs, the board will draw about 2 amps. This is not significant enough to merit its own run to the battery.

    3.) Every vehicle's harness is different. Connection would vary from vehicle to vehicle.

    Greenman,
    No hurry, but did you get a chance to look into my missing USB cable? I just don't have any extras, so I can't use the board until i get one.

    Thanks for the reminder. I'll get one out today.

    So is there some simple circuit (amybe just a couple resistors or something) that we could build ourselves? Until you get the "professional" ones done?

    Is there anyway to add hotkeys that can control outputs?

    Thanks,
    Sent it out yesterday. Shipments generally take 5-7 busness days to get out.

    Nope... But that is a pretty good idea. I will see what I can come up with. There are already quite a few keyloggers for debugging features, which might interfere, but since those features are "developed" I guess I can remove them now.

    I will add it to the list.
