    anyways there were a few things i REALLY wanted to be able to do and i dont know how abouts to do it..

    i wanted to
    1. control my heat and and ac
    2. control windows and locks

    i came across this...
    http://www.roshanindustries.com/mp3pumphouse/Aircon.htm

    sounds like it would cover the heating controls i want. im not sure i understand exactly how it hooks up to my car though.. if someone could explain this a little better that would be great.

    and then i dont know how about goin with the windows and locks. any help please?

    not a real expert, but shouldn't the windows be easy? you know have a pushbutton to open or close your windows. replacing the buttons with a relay should do the job. hook that up to the fusion brain or something (actually any usb relay card) and that's it...
    so when the contact of the relay closes, the window goes up. normally the window should stop automaticly when it's completly open or closed...
    to make them open/close automaticly you just need some sensors that give the command to open or close (heat sensors, rain sensors). using the fusion brain you could easily use them as an input that sends a command to the windows.

    for the locks it's just the same story, although i'm not sure how you want them to automaticly close... maybe when you start to drive they should lock? then all you need is a speed sensor, or tap into the speed sensor of your car somehow. however, how you should do tis i cannot tell you, since it's very car specific...

    anyway, i hope u understand what i mean (my english isn't that good, certainly nnot when i have to explain something technical...

    I would recommend taking a look at the Fusion Brain Forum. This is a popular topic. Additionally, I would go with the fusion brain over the linked option because it can accomodate windows, locks, and climate. Also it can easily be used to power other future projects.

    Also 100Euro (~$150USD) for something with a limited functionality compared to $65USD for the brain. A temp sensor is $5 from us, So $70+ s/h ($8 usually) gives you more than it can offer.

    I am a bit biased though.
