Mustang Power Hood
The hood on my Mustang opens like a clam shell, as shown in photo below. I currently activate the two actuators with switches located under the grille, but created a circuit that works with the remote control that opens my doors.
- Press Button 3 on remote control, system checks for lock (if locked, beep a horn, but no action).
- If no lock, open the right side until half way, then open left side. Since one hood overlaps the other, it’s important to get the logic right or the hood could be destroyed.
- Button 3 will latch the circuit so only a momentary push is required.
- Press Button 4 and the hoods will close.
Left side goes down first, at halfway point (determined by potentiometer feedback), the other side goes down. A short beep signifies that the operation is done.
