    Motorizing car doors

    Hello; does anyone have any links to where i can find out more on motorizing my car doors by remote. Mainly concerned with how youd OPEN the door before an actuator would push it out...Thanks!

    I wouldn't do this. Imagine you pull up into a small space and you press the door button. There goes a door ding on the car next to you

    You could add a sensor to that stops the opening mechanism if something is detected close by.

    I wouldn't mind ejection seat as I have Targa top.

    What if the car battery die and you go handle less?

    Happen to me today because something wrong with the SDC thus the computer keep turn on but doesn't shutdown... The result is a dead battery.

    True, but that's more circuitry, etc
