    If i remember correctly you got a carnetix 2140. You can build a really simple pic based circuit to supply a simulated acc signal based on a push button interface. Also the amp remote signal could be provided by the pic through a relay. The circuit schematic provided by optczr could be stripped down to allow for this, also a much smaller pic could be used for these operations. with minimal coding.

    hopefully this isn't too vague. if it is, i could draw something up for you real quick one of these days...

    My main problem is I dont really want to run 90 wires from the trunk to the cabin for control of all that crap. A pic based solution would allow for less wire clutter but at the same time I dont have the means to program a pic chip.

    *Bump*

    Anyone home?

    Schematics?

    Hey ruffy, I can provide you optczr's schematics, parts list and details of his sdc (if he agrees, shoot him a PM). I just can't provide you with a programmed PIC..........

    Cheers

    No, you can't, but I can. I bought a controller from him without the caps soldered on (they're in the bag though) and without the LCD screen.

    I am quickly finding that I won't have a use for it. And since I bought it, I can sell it just as easily. :-)

    PM me if you want it.

    Been out for a while, doing other thing, but received a PM today which caught my attention on the startup/shutdown controller. If anyone needs the controller drawings or parts list, just send me a PM and I'll send them right to you..

    File is zipped and includes everything that you need to build your own 1st generation startup controller. So because of file size, I will need to have your email address, so that I can send it to you.

    Hmmmm.........

    Does that imply you have a second gen in the works?

    I'm currently working on a newer version, but its more of a custom unit for my install. I liked the idea of relay control on the startup/shutdown controller, but didn't like the idea of have it only controlled by the carpc. Don't get me wrong, I want to control my relays by the carpc, but I also want to control the same relays without the PC (like when I park and only want to have my LEDS on and neon on but not the carpc).

    So that is what I'm working on and some other cool things on this little unit..

    I meant to ask you, opt... Since you sent me the completed unit (minus the LCD) and I'm not going to be using it for my build after all... I'm okay to sell it to someone else who will want it, right?

    wow, its been like 6 months since i stopped in here. i still have not even started my own controller. i do, really like some of the ideas that have come up since my last visit tho. what all is your controller going to be capable of when finished, Luwe? looks impressive!

    hope all is well!
