    Yes you can, Jenny.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    This is real easy. Build a constant to momentary circuit with relay, resistor, capacitor, etc. Hook that up to your car's ACC line to detect power up. Then hook the other end up to the serial port on your computer. Install Girder. Have Girder detect signal from the serial port (Com 1) and fire up RR when there's a short.
