    Making useof Existing character LCD

    hi guys,

    bet there are a few of us out here who, after removing there HU have redundant Character LCDs still fitted.

    How can we utilise these? inmywiring loom from my HU there are 2 wires for which i cannot account could these be wires that send info to the Char LCD?

    i want my LCD to say:

    Booting - when booting up,
    Ready - when idle
    Playing - you guessed it
    Closing - shut down

    Is this possible and has anyone else doneit??

    cheers

    Nick

    I think the problem will be that for instance in your megane and my astra, is that they will use a proprietary protocol to send messages to the LCD, which I doubt the manufacturers really publicise
