Auto Window Close Mod.
I have an idea I know its doable, but I think I should seek some help before proceeding.
Okay, so electric windows, don't you love them, I know I do.
I wanted to make a useful feature which I believe would not be that difficult to do.
So this is the idea, when I lock/arm my car, I want the windows to close at the same time.
I have a few circuits in my head to make this work, but nothing I can draw out, but here is the basic idea. We run a wire from an actuator on one of the doors, making sure its a positive when locking only, then we run that wire to a relay which can detect the voltage used to lock the door then supply a voltage to all the windows to raise them accordingly.
I have confidence in this idea and its circuitry, however, I need to come up with a solution for the "Window is already closed" problem. I need for voltage to window motors to be killed of the window is already closed, don't mind the voltage trying to close the window, but I don't think 5-10 seconds of voltage closing a window that is already closed been applied is good for the window motor.
Thanks for opinions and help in advanced.
