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

Python after a year started draining battery

My Python was working fine for the first year that I had it. All of a sudden I would go to manually start my car and the battery was dead. I took the car to my mechanic and was told that for whatever reason it seemed that the remote start was killing the battery. So he disabled it for me. Since I had it installed at Circuit city well... we all know what happened to them. I need someone to fix the thing! Where do I start to look? Anybody have any idea?

    I have the same problem with my system that is installed on an '02 liberty. Also, it doesnt engage long enough to start the car when its really cold out.

    I have the same problem with this thing as well as the door unlock no longer works. Also, the other night the thing started up my pick-up truck 3 times during the night. It too is a Circuit City purchase and installation on a 94 GMC 3/4 ton. Any ideas

SOURCE: Circuit City installed Python 1400XP on my 2002 Suburban.

That does not sound intierly tru but what is the year ,make and model of your car and i can check for you. but if memory seves me right it just consists of alot of extra work that most tech's dont like to do.

SOURCE: intermittent arm/disarm of Python model 560XV

this "could" be a bad ground, however, usually when these units lose ground, they activate the siren at a really low level, because they are trying to ground through the siren.

I would say to check where the antenna plugs into the main unit,(brain) but honestly, in 17 years of dealing with DEI alarms, 99.9% of these problems are due to the transmitter - it may blink the LED like it is supposed to, but that doesnt gaurantee it is sending a signal. I would recommend buying a new transmitter and programing it to the brain.

SOURCE: i have a python sst car alarm

usually a combination of 2 buttons so the car doesnt start accidentally.

Depending on the number of output channels - the installer could have installed on any of the channels and that would dictate which buttons to press.

if it is not set on the AUX (output 2) button, then try...

  1. Lock + unlock at the same time - output 3
  2. * + AUX at the same time - output 4
  3. Lock + Aux at the same time - output 5
  4. Lock + * at the same time - output 6
You have not given the model # of the unit - so these are viper's STANDARD remote controm configurations.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: HOW TO DISABLE PYTHON ALARM SYSTEM WITHOUT DISABLE

When the remote start is disabled with the Toggle switch there is no reason why the door locks should not work. Sounds like faulty installation.,

Can you remove the python box without removing the wiring? That'd be a pretty definitive way of determining if the relays inside the python box are bad. On another note, this sounds like an ignition switch issue, the python box could just be coincidental.

Sorry, not much help... but see if you can eliminate the python box. That's the diagnostic process with electrical is to remove possible causes and record the results. Next, you might consider unplugging the wire harness from the ignition switch... or remove the wire harness that leads up the steering column.

While our Dodge ram truck sits - the horn starts blowing. We think it has to do with the remote and the security. We have the Python CE0890 remote starter - it is a few years old.
