sure I can solder, its just that I always screw up on these things. I always try stuff like that, yet it always goes wrong... In the end it never works and its just somewhere in the corner. If it wernt for that, I wouldnt be asking for help...
What if I sold you a fully soldered board? How are you at wiring, you must be good
I can explain what wires connect to where. Along with the board theres additional purchases such as Relay, Current sensor, RTC module, LCD screen and suitable project boxes to house everything.
Its important to note that this is a complete replacement for the original C5 electrics and is a considerable undertaking. All bulbs (front/back lights/indicators) need to be low power LED's, though you don't need to connect indicators if you don't have them. Be wary too that this may devalue your C5 especially if you have original indicators and start chopping the wires off
Don't worry about the programming stuff, there is no programming involved (I've done all that for you
). What happens is you connect the Arduino to a PC (via USB) and upload the software to the board, its all free and easy to do. I will make a detailed post soon showing how to upload software to the boards and theres plenty of examples on www.arduino.cc
I think that anyone who wants to install this kit needs a good understanding of how it works in order to know how to look after it and also know how to upload software.
