Has anyone else had a problem from time to time of the starter kicking in and out a few times before finally starting the truck?
I hate it when that happens.

I just got my Dball xpresskit and it was supposed to be preprogrammed but I can't get it to work. I installed it following the directions and had no luck. When I hit the lock button three times the radio comes on and dash flashes ang lights up but no engine start. If anyone knows what the problem is please let me know. Very frustrating! I contacted eBay seller and they gave me a few things try and then said I need to contact technical support because they did everything right. I will try that but if not I will be asking for a different unit that is reflashed.

Anyone know if an 08 flashed dball is the same as the 2012 flashed? Or does it need to be flashed again with a different setting?

Glad I'm not only one with this problem! Frustrating that so many other people had such easy success and that I am having problems.

Okay, I just got done installing this kit in my 2012. I had a horrible time, but I finally figured it out. Below are some issues that I ran into but figured out.

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!

I to have a 2012 Ram 1500 and installed the db-all with harness. Installed it, programmed it and it remote starts fine. However, it will not start with the key. I can remote start and take over with the key and drive away, but it will not start with just the key alone. Any ideas?
