Hello,

I have a 2012 Dodge Ram 1500 Express. It has power locks but no Key FOBs. I built a remote entry for my truck out of an old router. I have a wire going from it to the door lock wire in the passenger door to lock and unlock my truck via wifi connection. It works flawlessly.

Now, I bought the dball to integrate with it to remote start the truck. I was thinking if I hit the lock 3x on my smart phone it would be the same as 3x from a key FOB. Nothing happens when I do this. Does anyone have any idea where it gets the lock signal 3x from so that I could tie into that location? Or, is there a way to trigger the remote start function from a single wire connected straight to the dball? I read on a post where you could make it manually start the vehicle by grounding one wire, applying +12v to one wire, and then momentarily applying +12v to another. This will work, but I would rather just bump a wire 3x with 12v or ground to make the dball control everything from there if possible.

Thanks,
Wayne

Where did you get your DBALL? Did they program it for your truck? I just installed this on mine, so I did a lot of research on it.. I read some times even if they program it does not take.. the device to program it is like $20 I cant think of the name of it.. I am sure some one will chime in with the name.. I would start there.. sorry I cant help much more.. good luck!! its addicting to start your truck every time with it once its on!

I got it from ebay. It was programmed before it was sent to me. I see where people have trouble with that sometimes, but I am not sure if that is my problem or if it is because I am using the router to unlock and lock the doors. I am guessing the locking action from the key FOB is also passed through the d2d. Which I am not getting since Iddon't have a key Fob. Thanks for the input. I may hook it up on someone else's truck just to see if the programming is correct.

Good luck!! I think hooking it up to another truck would be your best bet!!

If you dont know any one else that has one.. Go test drive one at a dealership and hook it up down the road from the dealership! hahaha
