    Hey DjBac, i was about to start working on something like this using the parallel port, until I found this, which made me pretty freakin happy. The picture you showed on page 4 I think, is that the phidget board with a board you made with relays to control inputs and outputs? I am going to ask a stupid question, i want to be able to use a temp sensor, and was wondering how you did that. I ask that because you used the 0/16/16 that can't use the digital temp sensor, or did you use the USB temp sensor. Thanks for any help, its been awhile since I programmed in VB, but this is a good reason to start again. You should add this to "support software" and ask for donations or somehwere else. I think this is something everyone can benefit from that has to remove some buttons or options on the car when mounting, and just to do some really cool things.
    Nice work so far, and if you need some help, because I got lots, let me know.

    I am very close to having this working for my car, i post about it on my site http://www.smokinmhz.net

    i am using 2 stepper motors, a parallel board to control them, a crystalfontz 633 for user info/input and the temperature sensors, a circuit to interface with the OEM climate control PCB and Fan switch, and i am currently writing the software in C#

    well, i was just playing around with visual basic a bit and have found out how to get a semi-original gui going using some clipped parts from codesters screen above for a testbed. so far ive been able to get the background in and a button and make it all look clean. just the title bar and window outline i havent been able to find out how to remove yet.

    my question is though, how hard has it been for you guys to integrate phidget control into a vb.net application? is it as simple as entering code like this into the mix?:
    Code:
    onclick.btnfanspd1 {
         phidget1.move.25 }
    or is it a bite more complex?

    Looks great! This gives me the idea to do the same, and just hack and solder into the climate control. But the problem is that I'd need 2 kits... 1 being the 0/16/16, the other being 8/8/8. My car has 10 buttons on the AC, so the 8/8/8 will not be enough But hey, its cheaper than getting a new peice

    Well, I use 2x0/16/16 and 1x8/8/8 for the moment... But I will need one more 8/8/8 since 5 of my leds in the HVAC board that tell you if A/C or rear froster etc are on ive an output bellow 3.5 so I can't use 0/16/16's inputs... I had to use 8/8/8's analog sensors... So I will need one more for the 2 temp sensors (more to come), light sensors and a lot volt sensors...

    I think it is difficult for someone to publish it's soft, since the functions are unique ofr every car model!!
