I'm an active member of stackoverflow.com and I was looking to see if the stackexchange suite of sites had an automotive one. This was the closest I could find. Is it appropriate to ask automotive questions on this site? It's not really a electronic automotive question...

No, it is not, if it is not related to electronics or robotics it does not fit here.

Area51 had a site proposed for automotive.

Are you designing/debugging automotive electronics on a component/software level? Yes.

Your stereo stopped working? No.

There was a site called "Automotive Electronics Development" a couple months ago. However, it was closed down in Pruning Season as being too niche in comparison to E&R.

I know this because I was a follower (one of ~30). Now, it's only existence is a few comments in the Google cache that can be found by searching for "Automotive Electronics Development" site:area51.stackexchange.com.

Ask your Automotive Electronics Development questions here!

If your source for automotive electronics is the Advance Auto down the road, however, you're probably better off asking a mechanic for now and following the Motor Vehicle Maintenance and Repair proposal for later.
