    That's got to be fake. *Four* days of sunshine? In a row?

    Level kit,
    Did you cut the unused connectors from the unit before wrapping them up.

    On the DBALL2 I just folded the unused wires over within the braid and left them be. There was enough insulation extending over the cores that I didn't do anything else. As for the additional connectors I just left them off the unit entirely.

    As for the SmartStart with it's hydra-like wiring, I just folded the unused connectors down and slid the braided sleeve over the bundle. Same for the octopus-like mass of connectors at the other end of the four-pin to four-pin cable, I folded over the parts I didn't need so they were covered by the braid.

    PJ, thank you for this great post. It made the install a breeze - especially for someone that typically has to fumble through auto wiring! Your charts were great and very easy to follow.

    Now if I can convince you to put together the same chart for a 2016 Nissan Frontier.... I'd be a superhero to my Wife!

    Tell her to go buy a tacoma. :p The frontier doesn't look like it's remote start ready so it's likely to be a giant pain in the rear and require a separate alarm/remote start module.

    Here's what DEI says for the 2016 Frontier:

    https://www.directechs.com/VehicleCompatibility.aspx?p=-1&v=10501&ps=1&s=0&c=0

    The image @PJnc284 posted is from the DBALL2 Install Guide on that page; I'd suggest opening it and reading through it to see if it gives you a sense of how to proceed. I suspect you'll need the 4X10 remote start module, but haven't researched how its wiring interacts with the DBALL2's wiring.

    @gpb I thought you had done a alternate termination on the big 12VDC wire on the ECU? Instead of stripping and soldering you removed the pin and connected another way. I can't find that info, maybe it was someone else. Thanks again for the great write up.

    I did but didn't focus on that in the write up. Pretty simple really, I pulled the plug out of the ECU then using a tiny screwdriver I released the catch holding the metal terminal inside the white plastic plug. Do so from the business end, you'll see the second opening that gives access. Metal terminal then pulls out the back and I soldered to the crimp. Make sure the tab/catch is how it's supposed to be and reinsert into white plug until it clicks in. Then plug it back in.

    Obviously do this with the battery disconnected.

    I've installed mine but now realize that I did not install an inline fuse on the 12V. Do I need one? I didn't see any fuse mentioned on any of the threads or I've missed it. Any thoughts?

    I know there's delay in the actual ignition sequence when you're using Apple Watch, what if I just use my iPhone, is it any quicker?
