How was the shipping time from the seller? I hope to have something ordered, and installed asap. Plan to place the order tonight.

<edit> - Ebay predicts to arrive in NY by Friday, with free shipping. Im in Canada, but not far from the border so for sure worth the trip to pick it up. Save the 25$ shipping...and it will be here this week. Great!
They shipped the next day I ordered it. I got it in a day, but then again, i'm in AZ basically ground shipping from CA is 1 day. I was actually paranoid about it that I called them to make sure they flashed it correctly (after reading all the problems the other posters here said) but my process went through very smoothly. I spoke to a dude and he said that they already flashed it and on its way.


Funny - I'm sure you ordered this because its getting cold there (NY,) I ordered it because of the 120+ temp in the summer here.. lol

Too funny...

Your right...i am ordering for the cold for sure! Not sure what is worse, extreme cold, or extreme heat. At least with cold weather you can always put on more warm clothes....when it's hot, once you've taken everything off your kinda out of options. All though I'll take 120 Arizona dry heat over 90/95 + humid heat every day of the week!!! That is just unbearable. Give me heat, or give me humid, but please not both at the same time.... luckily we don't usually get a whole lot of days with both extreme heat, and humidity... but still, even one, is one too many...

Adding factory RS should work like my 09 Challenger R/T did when I installed the factory remote start.

I verified that my Express has the wiring harness for the hood open indicator. What is needed is to install the hood latch w/ hood open indicator $49 and the rubber button panel for a fobik with RS ($10 on ebay). I'll swap the rubber panel that has the disc for the RS button on the fobik then take it to the dealer to be programmed per instruction sheet.

I'm not going to swap the WIN so my fobik will work fine (all of are fobiks can do RS you just need the small disc that goes behind the rubber button panel).
My WIN (Wireless Ignition Node is what the fobik fits into) is the same as a RS version.

I have an 06 Ram and tryed installing the DBALL with the plug and play harness and it didnt work. I bought it from Ebay and it was suppose to be preprogrammed but the light codes seem to be fine but it just is not starting the vehicle. Any suggestions?

Hello all, thanks for this thread, some great info.

I have a question regarding installing this into a 2012 ram. I saw one post asking about a installing this into a 2500. It was mentioned that it will work, but I am wondering if this is possible on the Cummins rams? Is there a timer option available for the intake heaters?

Thanks for your help.

Great thread

I bought myself the DBALL off ebay for Christmas and was a little scared after reading some of these threads. I emailed the guy I bought it from and told him I had a 2011 RAM 1500, he said he would flash it for me no problem. It arrived on the 24th. It was -10 C out so I figured I would install it. It took less then 5 minutes to install and is working perfect.

I hope everyone else had a Merry Christmas.

Installed the Dball the other day. Wish everything went so smoothly. Install was super, super easy. People are not exaggerating when they say it's a 5 minute job. It really is.

I bought my unit pre-programmed from jsalarm on ebay.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/REMOTE-START...:X:AAQ:US:1123

Bought from that seller, based on a recommendation from someone else in this thread. Like him, I received the unit quickly, and was properly programmed for my vehicle. Couldn't have been easier. I'll be at least the second in this thread to recommend them.

All around I'm super happy with a fast, easy and cheap remote starter....all without splicing any wires! Awesome.

Hi all, Just installed this on my 2011. It literally took 5 minutes. One thing I notice is that my parking lights do not come on. Is this common?
