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

1 Answer

Digital Odometer and Shift Indicator stay on after getting 1400xp

I have a 2005 Dodge Ram QC 4X4 and just had the Python 1400xp installed at CircuitCity yesterday (waited 6 hours and I had a scheduled appt). Dome light/cargo light no longer comes on when door is unlocked, they never asked me if I wanted that hooked up so it's probably my fault. Next problem, doors no longer lock with the door switches also system does not automatically lock when remote started (my old crimestopper remote start did-was a nice feature), this is probably just a feature problem and not install. When I picked up my truck and remote started it and got in and started to drive it went hard into reverse and was flying at idle and did nothing in drive. I immediately threw it in reverse and headed for the install bay door. I decided to 1st try shutting off then on and this worked (must have been tach learning) will post again if this becomes a problem. Biggest problem for me is that the digital odometer and digital shift indicator stay on even after locking. Dome light times out after 30 seconds, acts like doors are not being locked. Think this is because of the factory keyless entry? When i open the truck door it dings like I have the key in the ignition which is new since the remote start was installed. I am sure it doesn't draw much power but over a long enough time it may. Please help...

I am trying to find an installation manual for a python 1400xp online.

Have you tried DEI's web site and go to support and scroll down to where you see installation manuals for that alarm and either save it or print it ( have lots of paper though because the ****** is 56 pages)

When i hit the start button on my remote the indicator shows up but the vehicle will not start. the lights will flash once..... then about ten sec later will flash once again before disengaging.

I would sugest first that you check your users manual. You may have changed a setting with out knowing. if you cannot find your manual just go here

it is in PDF format. If that is a no go your car may have a demobilizer and your bypass module may have become defctive or not installed properly. hope this helps.
