Question about 991 Responder LC3 SST Security/Remote Start System

1 Answer

I'm trying to install a Python 991 Remote Start / Car Alarm in an automatic 2000 Subaru Impreza and I have all the wires set up. I know the Control center is supposed to be switch from manual to automatic to allow the engine to start up, however when I connect the control center to the brain, the LED doesn't light up. I've tested the 12v leads from the car into the brain and they're fine, and none of the fuses are blown.. Do you have any other ideas as to what happen aside from I may have gotten a lemon?

It is not the "control center" that needs to be switched. The unit itself must be programmed for automatic transmission. The antenna (control center) must be connected to the module for normal operation. Merely connecting the two does not initiate a reaction from the LED. You MUST enter the programming mode (ignition on , ignition off, press and hold programming button until you hear three chirps from the siren). The three chirps are remote starter programming options. After you hear the three chirps, press and release the programming button once then, press and hold the button (you will hear one confirmation chirp), now press and release the lock button on the remote (you should hear two chirps from the system). The unit is now programmed for automatic transmission.
There are several other programming options for your particular vehicle (not mentioned) that may be NECESSARY for the proper operation.

Remote start/alarm works not working properly

First, find the fuse, and sensor to the devise. Pull the fuse and waite a few minutes then replace. Do the same with the sensor, this will clear the devise settings on the cars computer. Then start your car and let it run through the computer system check of all car devises, it will locate the Python devise and resetit. If you have trouble in this process, look your unit up on line and call the tech department and they will walk you through the process. Then go back to Jeffy Lube and have them comp you for their lack of knowing how to work "around" this devise.

Remote start work but door will not unlock or lock!

Do the doors unlock when the remote starter is not running? If so, then you to connect to a different set of door lock wires.I usually connect to the factory alarm and disarm wires in the driver kick panel. They are blue for arm and pink for disarm. You test them by turning the key in the drivers door.

Make sure the unit is programmed to automatic transmission (if this is a automatic transmission vehicle). Make sure the switch is actually in the on position and not off (mislabeled). Check the hood shutdown pin switch and make sure that it is making contact with the hood when closed. Check the connection for the black/white wire.

It sounds like the factory alarm is setting up. To make sure the factory alarm does not come on you should make sure all doors are closed before you actually hit the remote to lock the doors. Do not lock the doors with the switch on the door. Make sure you use the Python remote only and all doors closed before you press the lock button.

if it's after market alarm system, (not the original factory instaled) then you're probaly right that would be the problem, or if you have aftermarket remote start instaled, they are causing many issue also.
