    No, it won't lose it's programming unless you do a module reset or hard reset.

    Thanks, that's what I thought but wanted to make sure before I go out and start working on something else today.

    Think I am going to do this today, while waiting for plastidip to dry in the 4 hours or whatever, think that's enough time to tackle this?

    Should be plenty of time. Holler if you have any problems since you're right across the bridge.

    Alright guys I'm 22, no electrical experience took me about 2 hours taking my sweet ass time going inside and outside and plastidipping my grille while doing this. Successful install... I used the idiots guide because it's literally fool proof LOL

    Also I suggest putting tape on each wire you have to tap so you don't get confused, worked well for me and after I skinned the wire I took off the tape (used painters tape) and then split the wire in half (still all together, military splice) just took the razor blade and split it and fed the dball wires through, twisted and taped them next to each other, I then taped the harness together so there was no movement and also used the zipties to keep the spiced wires from moving.

    Yep, I did the same thing. Really helped in the double-checking before I started shaving insulation.

    I also separated the DBALL2 wires by which connector they went to, and then worked connector by connector. OBD, C29 (Smart Key ECU), M6 (main body ECU).

    It's amazing what reading the manufacturer instructions will let you accomplish! LOL :D

    I also used your suggestion and did the c29 connector instead and it worked, so less work for me :)

    Just installed my remote start - Everything appears to be working and I ended up soldering all the wires which went rather easy.

    I do have 2 questions that I noticed from my initial test (tomorrow I will do more).

    If I start the car with the remote then I shut it off with the remote, I noticed that I cannot unlock the doors like I normally would by walking up to door and grabbing the handle. I have to unlock the doors with the remote control. If the truck is never started with the remote, everything works like it's supposed to and I can lock and unlock the door via the handle. Did I wire up something wrong or is this the way it's supposed to operate? If I start the truck with the remote I can unlock the door via the handle if the truck is running and then of course the truck shuts off.

    The other question, in relation to the above, if I start the car with the remote then I shut it off with the remote I noticed the parking lights stay on - how long do they stay on before shutting off, do they ever shut off on their own (yes I cut the auto light wire and soldered both wires coming from the dball2 to the white oem wire)? They do shut off if I open the door.

    Thanks for the help.

    I hadn't even noticed #1 until it was mentioned in another thread. Tried it and sure enough, it wouldn't unlock using the strip after shutting it off via the remote. Guess after remote start, the truck isn't realizing that it has locked back so no reason for the strip to work. As an alternative to using the fob, you can however touch the lock tab on top of the handle and then the strip works fine to unlock.

    For #2, be sure you have the headlights in auto. I had it switched to the headlight on position and the lights never shut back off after turning the truck off using the 3x lock.

    Hmm. I always have the headlight switch on parking lights and never in auto so I'll either have to change my behavior or deal with it :)

    Ha. I use mine in 40F weather; not so much for me but for the fact that warm truck = happy wife. Married men (should) know the importance of that.
