    Lightbulb Steering wheel command and CarPC inteface for New Renault

    Hi all,
    This is my first post, I think to mount a carpc in my new car, a renault megane 2, I've original car hifi whit steering wheel that I want to inteface whit carpc.

    I've found the manual of my car, I've read that there is a connector whit 7 cable, when I press a button I've 0,5 ohm from pin 1 and pin 4 for example.
    Now the problem is to convert this resistor to a signal for serial, parallel or joystick port and make a plugin for carpc.

    If there is anyone interested to this post and have any ideas to make the interface please contact me.


    There is the schematic:
    Vol +: 1 e 6
    Vol -: 5 e 6
    Seek +: 1 e 2
    Seek -: 5 e 2
    Pause: 1 e 4

    Thanks

    how many depends on how your car works. I have 3 buttons per axis on my car and have a total of 6 buttons hooked up.
