my name is elf i love working on cars but not for speed. i love the electronic side of it and i been able to dominate the area but having help is always appreciated. i build vehicles for people with disability and when some call it hacking i see it as making the vehicle accessible for them. to explain a bit further there no way for a quadriplegic to insert and turn the vehicle on. this means i have to hot wire it to a switch and or touch screen in order for the client to be able to drive himself without anyone assisting him. im here to find help in my craft and if possible to help others im proficient in CAN and till recently LIN. i find what we call secondarys ( A/C, Windows, Handsfree, Windshield wiper, lights, etc). i also do drive by wire if you never heard of it look it up i was as surprised as you will be when i found out. anyways im glad i found this community and hope to be a part of it.

Hello Elf,
Great to meet you.
I was fortunate to find a salvage dealer who allowed me to purchase and remove an ECM (brand) electronic servo system for hand control of gas/brake from a Chrysler mini-van. I installed it in our mini-van for my wife who really appreciated the independence.
I still have that equipment if it can be useful by someone. She no longer requires it.
I would like to know what software you use to monitor and send messages when you have time to respond.
Best regards,
Mechanicsville, VA ( :D happy coincidence)
