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

1 Answer

Newly installed 1400xp remotes do not work

The doors look when started they unlock when turned off and if I push the start button twice it starts but none of it works with the remotes. I call tech support and got yelled at for installing myself, I did not know I was not supposed to. Any help would be fantastic.

    yup everything works except the remotes. I have been told to find someone with bitwriter and they could fix it. Does that sound right?

  • krm7988 Mar 05, 2009

    The remotes do not work at all with the system and I can not seem to program them either. I was told it maybe locked and you need bitwriter to unlock it? Maybe it is just a bad unit it was a circuit city out of business open box buy.

    Ya they tend to be you know whats if your'e not a "qualified installer" but I do see there reason as someone can really do some damage in some vehicles. Sorry now i got your message but not understanding the "bitwriter" part.

  • Dallas Konecny May 11, 2010

    So the remotes do not work? Sorry just need clarification as to your problem.

I don't know where you live but i would recommend that you either go to best buy or a dealer that sells and install viper alarms and purchase a remote they should have a bitwriter to unlock the remote start brain if indeed it is locked.

Have no idea what this is

Depending on the "brain box" used, this fob can lock/unlock doors, unlock trunk, and remotely start the car. the * button is used for the remote start....OR can be used to arm/disarm a security system. Only way to tell is to try the buttons and see.
Also, some are wired so that first you must hit the door lock button, then the remote start * button. Also may need to push * button twice to get the remote start to engage.
Somewhere - likely under the dash near steering column or ignition switch is the brain box. Give us the model numbers off that box and I can tell you a lot more about what it does.

I changed the battery in my 1998 Mazda Protege and now my remote unlocker/starter doesn't work. The red light comes on when i push a button, but no response from the vehicle. How do I fix this?

1. Locate the valet switch for your system. It's a small black push button, connected to a pair of wires that are gray and black. There's no telling where the installer placed it, or if he even left it connected. But if it's there and you find it:

2. Put your key in the ignition and turn it to the "on" or "run" position (not to "start").

3. While the key is on, press the valet switch once and release it, then press it again and hold it.

4. Press the "lock" button on the key fob.

5. Release the valet switch and turn the key off.

6. Test the key fob to see if it worked.

You can disable the chirp confirmation by using the following procedure

1. Turn the ignition on
2. Turn the ignition off
3. Press the valet switch 5 times, wait for the Status Light to flash twice, the parking lights to flash twice and the horn to chirp twice.
4. Press the valet switch 4 times, the MARS unit will respond with 4 Status Light flashes and horn chirps
5. Press the transmitter START button, the MARS unit will respond with 3 Status Light flashes and horn chirps
6. Turn thr ignition on to exit program mode

Need to Silence Python Car Alarm 'Chirps' Permanently

I had the same problem, then I downloaded the user manual from the Directed Electronics site. It seems with most of the remotes (1400xp included) all you have to do is press the AUX button and then the Lock/Unlock button. This puts it into Silent Mode and no more chirping late at night or early in the morning, but you still have the ability to have it chirp when you need to by only pressing the Lock/Unlock button. Hope that helps.
