Hey all!

A while ago I was working on a e-series paddle shift controller for automatics. I made a simple code and circuit of what I think will work. I have too many other hobbies now so I simply don't have the time to work on it, I think it's almost selfish to keep from other fordmods enthusiasts that would like to carry on with the work.

If you want it I can forward in my work it's a arduino code and circuit. It also can be used to control the solenoids in a manualized configuration. I will not give it to who I deem as idiots!

If interested reply via this post

Why not finish it and sell them as a kit?

Funny you mention, after posting I thought about it! I might do the manualized option and see what the response is like.

Ill try to shoot down to jaycar on Friday, I have transistors but I don't think they'll Handel the current draw from the solenoids. Just to be easy ill buy solid state relays. Before any of that ill see what the current draw is like and maybe parallel the ones I have.

Price I guess would be 60 bucks maybe less but I don't know yet

I had it working on a test bench but never got around to installing it, now I have a manual it won't happen unless someone local wants it. Basically it was just an arduino 2 5v solenoids and 2 switches. The code was really simple to compile so you shouldn't have any dramas with it.

i just had a look for the code and its gone unfortunately.

i just had a quick look on google and a few people have done this, well at least tried!

the code provided in this forum should get you started.
