Project Idea: Car Interior Button Bluetooth Bridge

One of the simpler (hopefully) things I’d like to try is mapping various buttons on the car’s interior to info sent over bluetooth. Basically I’d like to make the car into a giant bluetooth remote.

Example: User presses skip forward on the steering wheel, M2 sees that happen on the CAN bus, M2 sends some info over a bluetooth connection to a phone, raspberry pi, etc. Looks like this is possible based in some code I’ve seen posted that can detect when the hazard flashers are turned on, the trick is just finding the CAN codes.

I’ll be working this on a 2006 Mercury Milan when my M2 arrives. Anyone else attempting something similar?
