I'm kinda wacko
Just make sure the metal key part is cut off or ground down durring installation, that way no one can use it to steal the rig later, lol.
I just had the 5701 installed in my X. I dont know how I did without it! Also, yes have them grind your key down before they put it in the bypass. Chances are its going to be hard to get to, and hard to start even if they get it...but it helps to be one step ahead.so, wifey's '04 X was recently broken into and so it's time to add an aftermarket alarm (better late than never).
i wanted to go the remote start route...i figure go big or don't go...
can i get some feedback/input from anyone who has gotten a remote start alarm installed and how that process was...easy/difficult...average cost...
i called a local shop about the viper 5701...they were talkin about this potentially being a difficult install and that they may have to "coffin" an extra key in the car to be able to allow the remote start to work.
i'm gettin ready to check with another shop...so i'm also lookin for feeback about viper vs. python...and is there any real difference or preference?
thanks in advance
You probably wont be able to install the XK07 yourself. The XK bypass moduals aren't made specifically for your vehicle. They are programable, meaning, you have to have it programs with the proper firmware to your specific make and model of vehicle. You need a piece called an XKLOADER. Not worth the investment for a one time use thing. Not to mention you tap into the can-bus system, if you've never done it and you accidently mix up a wire, you can cause some serious damage.Hi y'all!
I have an XK07 bypass module to be interfaced with Clifford 50.7x I am wondering if any of you can shed some help on my DIY install for it? I have an 05 X SE. I'm sorry to say that I did not get a Viper like you guys did but it's from one same family right? Like we are here... a family who loves X. Although mine is the city-beast sister of your off-road beast I still go out 4x4ing with my friends with it. She handles it pretty well. Perhaps even more if I upgrade shox to off-road ones.
Anyhoo, will anybody show me the way to add this to my currently installed and working
Clifford 50.7x sec/rs system? I have the manuals but, I am thinking to go for your hands-on experiences. Any inputs will be greatly appreciated!
I'm in the same boat..I found a 2015 Pro4 w under 70k miles and it was sold with a viper 7816v fob that I'm still trying to figure out...that remote start would be killer come winter but whatever.I bought my X used but it came with a Viper keyless entry that according to the original factory sheet in my glovebox was an added option when it was new. This morning I was walking to my car and much to my surprise it started when I unlocked it. I had tried to use the remost start many times and assumed it was not installed. Now once again I cannot get it to work.
Has anyone worked with these before? Where should I start without paying someone else to fix it?
