Q: Need help in reading wiring information

asked by on

I want to write an app to remote start my Audi A4 2005. I found this: http://www.modifiedlife.com/2005-audi-a4-remote-vehicle-start-wiring-diagram/ This is my first time under the hood for an Audi. Where should I start with the above to create something accessible via my smartphone?

My car has 100500 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi - www.hackaday.com has a number of articles on remote start apps and implementations. I would start there. Their readers are like-minded techno fans such as yourself. Happy Hacking!
