The P stands for programming. It's used when setting up the alarm system, you would need the manual for the system to tell you what can be done. I have a Python 990 and I can change pretty much everything from sensor adjustments, amount of time it turns over for starting, disabling the siren and many other settings. I found out the hard way one time when I accidentally pressed it and turned the key off and it disabled the siren. I think that's how it happened, been a while since it happened. I would have to get the manual out to be exact. You can also do the programming by pressing all 4 buttons at once and hold for 2 seconds. But you still need the manual to know what your doing. Hope this helps

Set up the car remote


A 7701P is a remote transmitter. It is not an alarm. You must know the alarm's model because different models have various ways of programming transmitters. In other words, you do not program the 7701P. The frequency is already fixed. You must program your security system to teach it that transmitter's code. Look up the manual for your security system. Instructions will be there. This typically involves turning the ignition on/off a specific number of times and pressing a valet/programming button (or switch) a certain number of times and then pressing a button on the transmitter.

How to reprogram Python 4Button Remote 474P ?


I had the exact same thing happen with my 4-button 474p remote. WITHOUT REMOTE START the correct sequence is:

1. Enter car - Leave door open.

2. Turn key to "on" position.

3. Within 5 (five) seconds press the Valet button 7 times then hold down. (Programs to channel 7)

4. Watch alarm light - It should now flash 7 times.

5. While still holding down the Valet button - Press the "lock" button on the remote and release. Should get a "chirp"

6. Now release and repress the Valet button once, holding down. You'll get the "chirp". Release Valet button.

7. Turn key "off". Exit vehicle and test remote. All 4 buttons should now work.

Press and hold programming button on the back of the remote until one long beep is heard, Programming mode has been entered. Use the lock button to toggle between vibrate and beep. If no action is taken after five seconds, the programming mode will be exited.

How to turn light on the python 990 remote?


If you just want the LCD backlit turned on, press and hold the program button on the back of the remote until the remote gives a long tone, that indicates that you've entered programming mode. Then within 5 seconds of entering programming mode press the the unlock button. The remote will beep once for backlight on and twice for backlight off. In the "on" setting your backlight will turn on each time a button on the remote is pressed. It will run down your battery faster though. It's the same for both the 990 and the 950 remotes.

One of my remotes will no longer operate my Python


This is a common problem on these and the equivalent viper models. We sent all our units back to viper and they have now re-released the units. We had installed these units into customers vehicles and about 50% had the same issue your having. Even after they were reprogrammed, many returned with the problem again. My advice is to contact python and have the unit replaced.

Python 990 isnt locking or unlocking my doors .


Its going to be either the wires going to the locks or the programming in the alarm. The only way to tell is to get the wiring tested. A plug could have just pulled out also. Do many variances for one straight answer.
