yeah just wire your alarm clock into your ECU...

get a remote starter, or give up.

well the remote starter would work okay except when i leave school i'm really far away from my car and it would only get to warm up for like a minute if that

You would def need something with its own microprocessor and a clock though

Alright this is gonna be a long post. I think this was the best place to post this, but move it if there's a better place.

Anyways, my car will be turbocharged soon and I would like to make it start and warm up for 10 minutes at certain times of the day. I have been having a hard time getting answers on how to do this so I went to howstuffworks.com and started looking at programming stuff. They skimmed over the basic program and using a stamp module from parallax. They said the stamp is not extremely fast and doesn't hold much memory, but i don't believe i need that much room anyways. I believe all I need to do is have a wire come off of one output on the stamp to send power to the ignition and starter, kinda like an amp turn-on. I think it will only need to stay on for about 5 seconds and then let it shut off because I have a turbo timer that will keep the car running for my set time after it is cut off. The turbo timer will just be preset to run for 10 mins everytime the car turns off.

I think the programming could work something like this if I understood HSW.com correctly:

high 3
pause 1000
low 3
sleep #(# equal to number of seconds until afternoon start up, like 10 hrs)
high 3
pause 1000
low 3
sleep #(# equal to number of second til next morning start up, like 12 hrs)
high 3
pause 1000
low 3
pause #

...etc... you get the point

I know some of the stamp models will only hold 80 commands and i don't think that would be enough to program for a whole week and then tell it to repeat so my last output could go to another stamp to turn it on and have it end the week, then the last output on stamp 2 would turn on stamp 1, etc.

How do you guys think this would work out, maybe I should just get a more expensive stamp that will hold more commands, or are there other chips i could use that would do the same thing and be cheaper. I dont know much at all about programming, but this is valuable to my car as I would like the engine to last as long as possible.

Thanks in advance to any replies

and again sorry for the long post, but i didn't want to leave any questions to ask
