I"m new to the Pi and, while I studied a bit of programming back in college (VB, a bit of Java and JS) at this point I'm basically starting from scratch. I have a kit car that I've built and I need to install an Idle Air Control Valve. HOwever, I currently have no way to control it. What i need to do with the Pi is have it power up a relay whenever I first start the car, then close it after a minute or so. So it would need to sense that I've started the car (basically just sense the state of a switch), power up the relay, then power down the relay after a set time. What do I need to make this happen and would it be done with Python? How much Python would I need to learn to accomplish this?
