Pin Connect
Raspberry Pi -- Control Circuit -- Remote

GPIO 17 -- Circuit A -- LEFT

GPIO 27 -- Circuit B -- RIGHT

GPIO 22 -- Circuit C -- Forward

GPIO 23-- Circuit D -- Backward

Simple Python Test
This simple test is to control GPIO 4 ON and OFF, you have to connect to Forward Pin on Toy Car Remote before RUN

$ sudo nano simpletest.py

<pre><p><strong>import</strong> time</p><p><strong>import</strong> RPi.GPIO <strong>as</strong> io</p><p>io.setmode(io.BOARD)</p><p>pir_pin = 7</p><p>io.setup(pir_pin, io.OUT)</p><p><strong>while</strong> True:</p><p>    io.output(pir_pin, io.HIGH)</p><p>    <strong>print</strong>(<strong>"Forward On"</strong>)</p><p>    time.sleep(3)</p><p>      io.output(pir_pin, io.LOW)</p><p>    <strong>print</strong>(<strong>"Forward OFF"</strong>)</p><p>      time.sleep(3)</p>
