Subject: Wireless control of auto switch

I'm looking for a means of controlling a 12VDC switch in a car.
Actually, the means to control it and the switch. I'm wondering if
something like a remote starter might be modified to handle this? The
switch should be turned on by one signal and turned off by another
Background: Someone wrote to me asking for help with this project.
He's a big drag racing fan, but due to physical problems, he can't
race. He would like to be able to operate the transbrake of his
brother-in-law's car. A transbrake is a device which when engaged,
activates the reverse gear in the car as well as the low gear, so they
cancel each other out and the car remains stationary. When you
disengage the transbrake, the reverse gear is turned off and the car
may move forward. The user interface to this setup will probably be a
sip-puff straw, or a large lever of some sort.
