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

1 Answer

Remote starter will not start vehicle

I have a vehicle that we bought used that has a DEI python remote car starter on it. We have used it quite a few times over a 6 month period. Now it won't work. I have replaced the battery in the remote prior to having trouble with it. I don't even know what model it is or how to find out. Suggestion appreciated as to where to start. On the morning that it stopped working I had started the car with it and it ran for a bit. Then maybe ten minutes later when I went back outside I used it again and then got in the car to go. I forgot to turn the key on so then it died. I have not been able to start it again since. This happened about 6: 45 a.m. and it is now 7: 20 p.m.

    Not sure on the model but the keyless entry part of the system works fine but it just doesn't start the truck. It preps and turns all the gauges on but seems like it doesn't have a connection or something. I've looked and found no problematic wires so I don't know.

    I have the same problem. I left my car running too long and when I went to get in the car it had timed out. I tried to restart the car and it will not start. Any suggestions. I saw alot of wires but have no clue as to how to unplug them. I am a female.

First thing i would try is locate the main box for auto start. usually it is under dash on the driver side when installed. then find the lage or hrness with the most wires going to it and unplug it/wait a few min. then plug it back in. sometimes the unit will go into a security mode. this will just reset it. if this doesn't work then let me know

I recently installed a python 872 on my 2002 maxima. Now everytime i use the remote start and open the trunk the car shuts off and restarts in about 10 seconds. I had other dei alarms and never had that...

It's possible that the installer has the engine monitoring option programmed for voltage and, the unit sees a drop in voltage when operating the trunk...causing the remote starter to shut down. If so, try programming the unit for tachless instead or, hook up the tach wire.

check your starter they act up like that, when it will not start if you could try to hit it with a hammer, pipe anything you can not on the solenoid but on the body of the starter if it start up you know that is your problem.

Hi what tupe of starter i should purches for my car i have santa fe 2002

It really depends on what features you are looking for. I installed Audiovox for 12 years and DEI for 8. I like the DEI much better. The Audiovox always had problems with their remotes and would break down. DEI remotes last much longer and all the options are better on it too. They are the leaders in the field.DEI is the makers of Viper and Python as well as automate.

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.
