Hi Cameron. What do you need the WiFi for, if the esp will connect to your phone with Bluetooth?Warning: esp8266 does not have Bluetooth, only WiFi. Esp32 has both.
I could be wrong about this, but I thought Blynk only works if the Blynk node (the led controller in your case) can connect to Blynk's central servers over the internet. Then your phone, also connecting to the Blynk servers, can control the node. Will your car always have internet access? If not, perhaps Blynk is not the right solution for you.
As per reply #1.It is actually relatively simple. The ESP8266 is programmed as a WiFi access point serving a Web page containing the buttons to implement the various functions. The phone simply accesses that page using WiFi.There should be no shortage of code for this as ESP-01(s) relay modules are a popular item - I presently need to find such code to work from for a current project.
