Question about DEI Python 1400XP Remote Start/Keyless Entry System

Python 1400XP remote start system

This was installed a 2003 Chevrolet Monte Carlo, it was working ok. the car had a problem the body control module and the system was disconnected. Went to have the system hooked back up and the place where it was installed had closed. I hooked everything back up, the remote door locks work ok and the remote trunk release work ok but the remote start does not. when you activate the remote start, it powers up, you hear the relays click and the lights come on but it does not crank or start the engine. It cycles off and on several times doing the same thing then shuts off. the engine starts fine with the key and the engine will stay running when the remote start is activated when the engine is running and when you shut it off and take the key out. Is there a relearn procedure or reset procedure that needs to be done? I only have the owners manual information. I do not have any installation instructions. Any help would be appreciated.

Yes you are correct the learn procedure is done by a dei 555L or a 555G bypass module.your car should have one or the other installed on it. simply unplug it,it will be a three wire plug. then plug it back in and then by turning the ignition on and off it will relearn the code.

    JRatzlaff - Did this solution work? I am having the same exact trouble down to a "T" that you described above. Car will start fine with key, remains running when remote is removed from ignition, lights, relays and solenoid sound fine when remote is pressed, but never cranks. And will try to start three times. Recenetly had car at dealership and this problem surfaced when I got the car home. And of course the dealership claims there did nothing to cause this and refuse to look at it since it is an aftermarket product.
