Brilliant work!

Your engineering and electronics skills are amazing!

I particularly admire your work overcoming the difficulties with the auto gear box, air con, power steering, vacuum, speedometer - you have some determination there.
Cars in my care:

2005 Volvo S40 T5 German Diesel botherer with new tyre grippage
2010 Citroen C4 1.6 HDi turbo de' explosions, bizarre gearbox model
2010 Renner Twingo refreshingly simple

Yeah i must not let a car mess with my plans... 8)

I think AC wont start because BSI thinks the car is low on coolant, which it is. I will have to route the cooling system hoses and connect the reservoir.
I cant see RPM indication anywhere in the AC logic.

I still have a backup plan for RPM indicator. I will just use one small 12V electric motor and make one 60 slot wheel with optical sensor with last 3 slots cut out. I will run it at 800rpm as soon as i apply start pin. This should make BSI think the car is idling.
