6. Open Arduino software.

7. Open the Sketch (program/code).

8. Upload the Sketch.

The wheels and RGB LED will respond as per code. If it does not, check all the jumpers. Use Serial.println to troubleshoot.

Editing Your Code

Edit RGB Colors
If you used 1 set of LEDs program the left RGB LEDs

If you used 2 sets of LEDs program the left and right RGB LEDs

the switch > case command allows you to program other keys of your remote.
1. Attach arduino to computer so you can test code from your remote using the Serial Monitor.
2. Right down the code and then edit the list of Remote codes in the section below.

3. Add another case section in your main loop. Don’t forget to add the “break;” at the end.

4. Do Save As… to preserve original arduino sketch.
5. Upload sketch to arduino and then test the new button control.
