Protect your garden with the Deer Chaser Mk I. Guaranteed to protect your precious crops from voracious deer. All weather operation. 100% effective.

What you will need:
Arduino Mega 2560
Motor shield
LEDs
Parallax Ultrasonic sensor
Servo
Various wires
Ribbon cable
Cheap Tupperware
USB wall charger
Arduino cable (3 ft) 

Step 1: Wiring

We will begin wiring the ultrasonic sensor and the LEDs.

You will be connecting the wires to these pins:
20
21
26
36
38
40
GND
GND
The BAD thing is, you are using a 40 pin connector, 80 conductor cable here. <br>The concept is cool, BUT not all the pins on the connectors are actually connected in an 80 conductor 40 pin cable. <br>If you were using a 40 conductor 40 pin cable, you could wire to your heart's content without worry. <br>I just thought that needed to be pointed out!
You give a list of the pins you connected but you don't say what you connected them to? Could you add a schematic/wiring diagram. Thanks!
Also from the pictures I assume you are using the servo to move/ rattle the &quot;pringles&quot; can. Am I correct?
It does rattle the can. I'll add a schematic soon. I didn't realize that it is a bit confusing just looking at a picture of the wires. <br>
