Hi,

First time posting here, looking for some advice. Have recently made a custom console for my car to hold the radio and house a few important gauges . Trying to avoid the boy racer look in my interior I have designed a fold back flap to cover the gauges when the ignition is off.

I have bought a servo controller kit from eBay which allows me to set the limits for the servo to ensure it opens and closes correctly.
2 or 3 Position Server Controller Module Including Servo | eBay - https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F113528006550

What I would like is when the ignition is switched on the flap opens and then when the ignition is switched off it closes. Ideally I would like the board not to remain powered whilst the car is running and maybe an override switch to allow it to be manually controlled also. Could this be achieved using delay relays ?

Thanks in advance,
James.
