Wiring a salvaged CD drive eject tray mechanism and motor into a car?
I'm not an electronics guy, but I've pulled apart an old CD drive and the motor and gearing system seem fairly straight forward. The car is 12v DC, obviously, and the eject tray motor is also DC, but the spec. sticker on the motor is unreadable, so I don't know the voltage. There's an obvious limiter switch in the mount that flips when the tray is fully extended, and what looks to be another one on the circuit board that flips when it's closed.
Can anyone help me with wiring on this? I'd like to have it so he either presses a concealed switch to open and close the drawer, or possibly have it tie into the switch that activates the back-up lights.
