    Yesterday i had a local guy install a python 580 for me. He made this thread on the12volt.com i've copied it here. I've seen a lot of question here lately on remote starters and installs. I've done a lot of custom audio in the past but didn't want to mess with a remote start on my truck the first time around by myself. This should help people looking for what specific wires and connectors they will need to hook up to do do this install. FYI the python 580 is the same as the viper 5301. This guy has been doing installs for 7 years and this took about 4 hours to compelete start to finish, we spent a little bit of time shooting the shit but just saying even for a professional, installed, this is no quick job.
