Im new to car hacking. I want to modify my car. The target is that the windows close automatically when i lock the car.

I found out that I can use the CAN2USB Device to connect the car to a linux machine. Using the package can-utils (cansniffer, candump, cansend) I should be able to modify the car.

sudo apt-get install can-utils

But how should I start? Could you give me some tips for my first car hacking project?

  • On many cars, if you hold the lock button down on the remote, it will close any open window. Have you checked?

    So add the make, model and year to your post - it does help.
