1. When you install the software using the XKLoader2, plug the red plug into XKLoader2 and the white plug into the DB-ALL.

2. I am not sure if this is necessary, but it worked for me. I used the Chrysler v5.01 on the xpresskit website. I tried it with the v5.06 but it didn't work (I also think the above problem contributed to this, but it is working now and I am not going to mess with it.)


Once I got this figured out, all went well. It was super easy to install and the DB-ALL has two slots for zipties to fit through. I just secured it to the dash frame and buttoned everything up! Three locks on the key fob and it starts like a champ!
Hope this can help some of you out there, and if you are in the STL area and need to borrow the XKLoader2, just hit me up and we can meet up!


If anyone is having problems getting the remote start to work, I would recommend purchasing the xkloader2 and flash it yourself. I ran into the same problem with my 2011 Dodge Ram where v5.06 didnt work but v5.01 worked perfect.

The parking lights will not come on with remote start unless you hook up the violet/green(pin 8) and violet/brown(pin 9) MUX wires frome the db-all unit to the white wire on the headlight switch connector. Hope this helps.

You may need to reset the entire device. Do you have the programmer? If not, you may want to buy one of those, XKLoader I believe is what it is called. Reprogram the dBALL and start from the beginning again.

Just programmed one for a Jeep Grand Cherokee! Took us a little while to install the correct version, but all turned out well!

I ordered mine and got it earlier in the week, some how I must have goofed the install. I wasn't getting the right light sequence and no start. The seller talked me through the reset procedure by phone and it works fine now.
