Its just a crap shoot on weather it will start or not. Sometimes I can start it when I'm inside the house in my bedroom other times I can be looking right at it and it wont work.

I wonder if the optional external antenna would help it

Here is the link. The seller flashed the dball for me which is included in the price. Just make sure you follow his instructions so that he flashes it correctly using the 3x lock option.

Awesome, thanks a lot. This will score big points with my wife. Now she won't have to go out to a cold truck in the morning!

I've searched as far as I can go. I can't find an optional Antenia for the Dball. Can someone help me out here? I think with the unit buried under the dash with all the wiring it really need some kind of antenia. The factory unit have a sensor on the dash.

There was something about XL-202 add-on with the optional antenna to extend the range... but not sure how it works with the range of the "Factory alarm..."

another thing I checked is that the possibility that our factory alarm has an antenna wire as well - this can be extended by attaching a "real" antenna to it - but I haven't looked into it.

I'm not jumping into researching this yet because it doesnt get that cold yet in AZ.. LOL - although when the 120 degree weather comes in.. it will be on the priority lol

RATS. I ordered the Dball & T-Harness. I followed instructions. Not working. When I plug in the Dball...the LED turns Red for a half-second then turns green before I even turn the key to on. Any suggestions? I have a 2010 Ram 1500 Sport

UPDATE: The Dball was not programmed by the seller. I had a shop flash it. Now, I get the proper sequence...but when I hit the lock 3x....I hear it click but she does not start. The shop that flashed it did not know anything about the RFTD being set to ON. Anyone know how to set it to on without having the XKLoader2?

Bought DB-ALL and T-Harness mid summer. I hooked it up and programmed it and it didn't work. Just now read through the forum and got it figured out. I just broke down and spent $28 on the programmer. I had to flash it 3 times exactly the same way before it worked. I don't know what that was about.

On another note, if anyone needs theirs reflashed and lives in the York, PA area I'd be willing to do it for you now that I have the tool.

Ok...finally got it to work. Once the Dball was properly flashed...the install took 6 minutes.
