great write up, I just posted a thread asking wether anyone has had any luck with the Xpresskit DB-all. Obviously I didn't look hard enough for this thread. A couple questions. . . does this void the factory warranty? and are the hood pin and neutral safety switch necessary to install?
Thanks

I am not using a hood pin or neutral safety switch. Mine works fine and I use it all the time. As far as voiding the factory warranty... I wouldn't worry about it coming into play in a warranty void situation.

Well, read this post last week and ordered the DBALL, T harness, and Xkloader. I received all items on Monday. I flashed the DBALL, then plugged in the harness and programmed the DBALL. Hit the lock button 3x times and the truck started, btw it's a 2012 Ram 1500 Express. Hit the lock button 3x times and it shut off. Then I tried to start the truck with the key and no go, it would not started. Unplugged the T harness and the truck started fine. I called Xpresskit and they said it was a bad T harness. I finally found a somewhat local shop that had the harness and picked it up tonight. Plugged it in and everything is working fine. I do have one question for everyone that has done this mod, when the truck is running are your parking lights on? Mine are not and I thought the parking lights were handled through the DBALL on the Dodge's. I have a Python 574 coming and Xpresskits said that with D2D the only connections needed are 3 12v wires, pink ignition wire, ground, siren, and hood pin. I guess we will see when it gets here. I hope that's it, I'm not big on splicing wires.

Did you ever get yours working? Mine arrived flashed with the setting at DEI instead of RFTD (seller sent me a similar sheet as yours) so was wondering if that is indeed the issue.

My remote start with the key fob is not working.
