    I didn't try it because I was having a hard time understanding it.

    I was talking with my cousin and he said it'd probably need a few more relays, like 3 or 4.

    i would appreciate it, I haven't had much luck trying to figure it out. I can build it, just can't design it

    Hey freestyler,
    What do you have in mind? You said something about moving an LCD?

    I'm doing something similar. I'm using a microcontroller to drive 4 servos. The servos have feedback sensors built in so I don't need any switches to stop the motors. Check out my prototype:

    interesting, very simliar to what I'm doing, however I'm going for more a more cosmetically appealing solution with a fiberglass bar to add to my soundbar I made.

    I haven't had time to work on this, too much wedding planning lately. Hopefully this weekend I will be able to revist it.

    I plan on positioning my LCD above the rearview mirror. I saw that you used to have your LCD mounted there. Why did you move it? I know it's not a good place for a touchscreen, but I don't plan on using a touchscreen. I'm going to mount some sort of tactile input device by the gearshifter and eventually use CD changer controls from an Alpine HU or similar.

    Buy this and be done with it.


    Cost is $27 kit, $32 assembled and you can control 8 servos via VB program without a need for limit switches. You'll probably spend that much in parts by the time you're done.

    Might want to look into an L293D. It's a push-pull four channel driver with integrated diodes. Basically a cheap chip to control 2 sets of motors, or one motor in two directions


    Googling for "L293D circuits" should yield some results.
