I have an aftermarket Audiovox starter in mine. Took the guys @30 minutes to do it out in the parking lot.

Not sure which specific kit was used but, from how it was explained to me, the valet key is inside of a RF lock box under the hood. The remote start triggers that box first, then the starter. They didn't program a module, its the actual key that's inside the vehicle.

Just curious, why did you go with the DB-ALL bypass. Just asking because looking up this car at Best Buy it said you could use the DB-ALL or FL-CAN. When I was with Best Buy I found the FL-CAN much easier to use.

Is the car not turning over or whats happening?

Figured out the problem! If you use the DB-ALL and install it yourself you will need to take it to a local directed dealer/ alarm installer and have the TL4 firmware uploaded to the bypass module.

I'm glad to see the tl-4 fw works. I'm doing a 2012 rs7 next week for my buddy and I was wondering how it would work. My only concern is intergrating the push to start as they can sometime be a pain.

dball works great on my tc. benefit in my case of usin dball is i can plug it into my clifford alarm system through data to data and do a lot less wiring in the vehicle.

and the audiovox guy with valet key in box, that was probably a 556uw module or somethin like it. oldschool way of doing it where you lose a key rather than programming a module to act like a key

I love D2D, a lot of installers despise it because it sucked at first and didn't work but I have only had a few instances where it didn't work correctly. Its awesome on chevy's I did a car and literally hooked up like 3 wires + d2d and a couple wires from the brain of the alarm and bam done.

Quick FYI: Anyone installing the DB ALL into any car should hardware the power and ground even when running D2D. Reason being DEI D2D doesn't always have enough power to run the DB ALL and could cause future failure.

This can be true but I have yet to experience it personally.

And to update the tl4 f/w did work on the rs7 and it retained the door handle features.

Default TC2 2012 - Viper 5901

I have a VIPER 5901 Security w/remote start that I took out of my old car, (98 Camry) In the Camry that car of course had the old school way of wiring every component to the system and was usually like a 4-6 hour job when I had it installed.

Reading up on this whole xpresskit and D2D & Dball interface module, seems much simpler then the old way of doing it. So what exactly would a install need to install the Viper 5901 into my tC? Just a DBALL-ALL module?

Like this one? Databus All Interface Module

There is also a dball2 module there..not sure what the differences are.

This youtube video makes xpresskit dball interfaces seem so simple

Jeez..if I had knew it was so easy to install I would of gotten it done a lot sooner instead of waiting not to void my warranty :/
