Question about Vehicle Security Systems

Python 488v/p/x Hello - I just purchased a truck that has a python alarm. But my remote doesn't do anything and there is no security light on in the truck. Where would I be able to get a hold of a manual.

    Yes we also just purchased a used 2003 with one of these remotes and no instructions. I went to the Python web site and did not find a pdf with the 488 model number. The battery had been removed and any time we insert the battery the transmitter starts playing little tunes but no action from the buttons , so we removed the battery. So far I have not found a site with info on this transmitter, evidently out dated. Any help would be appreciated.



    Thanks in advance.

Locate the valet override/program button. Turn key to "run" position, push and hold button for a couple seconds, and that should put it in valet mode. Door locks will still function with remote, but alarm will not arm. LED should stay on solid.

SOURCE: need to pair the remote with the alarm

If you know where your Valet switch is, turn the ignition on, push and release the valet switch once, then push and hold it, you should hear the siren chirp once, then while still holding the valet switch, push the #1 button on the remote, you should hear the siren chirp again. it is now programed. If you have the package that came with the remote, it should have a table on the back that tells you how many pushes of the valet for which feature you want to program. Most remotes are one push for all features, some are 7 or 8 pushes. So if it say auto learn is 7, turn the key on, push it 7 times, the push it again and hold it, the push #1 button, and it's programed. Hope this helps. If all else fails, take it to your nearest best buy, if they charge you to program it, it won't be much.

SOURCE: hi , i lost the remote for the alarm to my truck

is this an aftermarket alarm? you can look on ebay see if you might get lucky and find the remote. other than that all you can really do is remove alarm or upgrade it to a newer unit

SOURCE: I have a Python 991 remote start & security system

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

Have you tried having the security module replaced? This is common cause of a faulty module (the black box where the circuit board is located). I suggest that you have it replaced to resolve the issue. You can just do it yourself for they are plug and play.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Is 448V remote compatible with Python Car Alarm?


if its lit solid that usually means a problem with the system... so the alarm portion is most likely not active... or it might simply be in valet mode... without knowing the model of your car that's the best I can offer...

It sounds like the factory alarm is setting up. To make sure the factory alarm does not come on you should make sure all doors are closed before you actually hit the remote to lock the doors. Do not lock the doors with the switch on the door. Make sure you use the Python remote only and all doors closed before you press the lock button.

I lost my key with the python remote on it and when i use my spare key i cannot turn the alarm off what do i do.


The python alarm has a manual alarm disable. Upon entering the vehicle, turn ignition on, press and release valet switch. You should hear two chirps confirming that the alarm is disabled. Start the vehicle.

Python car security won't let me start my car


It sounds like you might have a dead battery in the car. When the alarm is losing power due to a bad connection or faulty battery it will act exactly as you have described. You can disarm any DEI alarm by turning the ignition on with the key and pressing the valet switch one time.
Hope this helps you out.
