Question about Directed Electronics DEI Valet Keyless Entry System

1 Answer

Check Engine Alert

Purchased a used 2006 GMC Sierra K1500 HD pick-up which had a Directed Electronics, Automate, AM6, remote starter and keyless entry system installed. Within a month, I got a ''check engine'' alert. My GM dealer diagnosed the alert as ''temporary loss of power to the transmission'' and indicated that the remote starter may be the problem. It just happened again and my dealer wants to remove the system to correct the problem. I like the system and feel that there may be a wiring problem. Is there anything out there indicating that there has been an identified problem with the Automate AM6 and GM products?

No not that I could find, before you remove the whole this just pull both fuses on the main harness red wire there should be 2 total, also check to see that the white ignition wire is hooked up to the remote start unit as this is a very important wire that needs to be hooked up because it is tyed in with your transmission system

I fried my 1400xp, so I purchased a used on on Ebay. How do I program my remotes to work with the new brain?


To program new remotes: turn key to the on position; within 10 seconds, press and release the programming switch one time. Press the switch once more and HOLD. While holding the programming switch, press and release the lock button on the new transmitter. Once the code is learned, the programming switch can be released. Turn ignition off. Test remote. Repeat as necessary for other transmitters.

We had the Avital 4003 keyless engine starter remote installed on our 4Runner in July when we purchased it. We shipped the car overseas and now that it has arrived the renmote will only start the radio...


You mean the igniton powers up but it does not start, correct? Sounds like the remote starter is not sending power to the starter. Did it ever work? It's possible that one of the 30amp fuses (one that supplies power to the starter output of the remote starter) is blown. If there is 12 volts present, check for voltage at the starter wire (purple) from the remote starter. If it has voltage,make sure it's connected. Also make sure that the harnesses of the remote starter are completely plugged into the module.

My python remote starter when starting in the morning only wil will runl. On my 2008 dicota truck will run less than a min. And shot itself off only in thr morn.


You need to reprogramme the tach input, the engine is running colder in a morning and will run higher for a few minutes, during the day the engine will be warm and idle quickly.

I have a 471t model remote starter, it fires up


Could be one of a couple of things. Tach not programmed properly or wire not connected correctly. Or the immobilizer bypass is not programmed or working properly.
