      Just installed this today, so far it's working well. A little difficult to figure out what you need and how to program. For my 2007 Dodge Caliber, I needed this DB-All, an XL202 RF module, a CHTHD2 T-Harness R9, and an XKLoader2 to flash the firmware. I was using the XL202 one-way, which means I only sent signals from my factory key fob to the car and not from the car back to the fob, so I didn't need an antenna. Your needs may vary. On the wiring harness, they have part numbers on their site in the installation manuals. Use the make/model selector and find your installation manual. THOUROUGHLY READ THE MANUAL BEFORE ORDERING ANYTHING! As I said, this is rather tricky, and some models do not have a plug-n-play wiring harness, which would considerably increase installation time. I'm an industrial electrician, and even I didn't want to mess with splicing some 12-odd wires under the dash on my back... I had to check my ignition switch wiring harness inside of my steering column ahead of time to verify that the CHTHD2 would work. Again, do you research, this is not an off-the-cuff project. Directions for flashing the correct firmware to your DB-All are also on their site, along with the free IE add-in to do so. If you have trouble flashing, try setting compatibility mode for IE if you're using a newer version (it's in the troubleshooting guide). I don't think the add-in (XPressVIP 4.5 at time of writing) is compatible with other browsers. Upon installation (follow the directions, and connect wires in proper order), mine did not work. After a little more reading, I had to reset the module and then program again with my factory key. Also, the safety disable toggle switch was in the 'off' position. After this, worked flawlessly. I have yet to hook up parking lights (which have to be run through a relay, I'm assuming because the output of the db-all can't supply enough current for the bulbs without frying). You can buy one cheap at an auto parts store. I spent $100. This is gf's Christmas present, though I gave it to her early; just couldn't wait and it's cold! :) Saved $200 by doing it myself. Spent 6 hours total, but 2/3 of that was reading and research. Actual install only took 20 minutes. Hope this review helps someone else save some time! Edit: I suppose I should mention I'm using this as a remote starter in what Xpress calls RSR (remote start ready) configuration. Works great, and you don't have to sacrifice a key.

      Starter works great, customer service lacking

      My experience starts first with trying to buy the starter on bestbuy.com. I didn't realize there was problems with the website that day. I attempted to book, thought I was unsuccessful as I received no confirmation page or email, so I tried to buy it again. Then I found out I had purchased two starters. When I called customer service, they said, too bad, the order is on the way, you will receive two, just take one back. Then when I called Best Buy to schedule the installation, I was on hold so many times that I finally went to the store. There is only one installer working at this store, so my appointment was 5 weeks out! Then when I finally went for the installation the guy is very grumpy, hardly wants to answer any questions, not very friendly to customers. So even though the starter seems to work well, I don't rate this as a very good experience because the customer service was so terrible from beginning to end!

      Car has been in 4 times in the first month to get the glitches out. Had trouble with it getting started. This was for my teacher sister and it has let her down all too often. I must say that the service people have been very attentive to try an fix this. It was just in again so we are hoping it works this time. The other thing is that we were not told ahead of time that one of the keyless entry keys would be taken apart to be used. Left with one key was a shock and she is a nun so an expensive oversight. Had we known, we'd have gotten a valet key first.For the past 36 hours, the starter has worked so we are keeping our fingers crossed and were told if we get a valet key from dealer, they can remover the expensive keyless entry key out and use the valet key instead, so things are looking up!.Presuming this is a fluke as Best Buy was tops when we researched places for this starter.

      This product failed within a week

      Within a week, the radio began automatically changing sources (radio to Bluetooth to CD to power off to aux, etc.) It would not stay on one source more than 15 seconds. I thought the radio was faulty. I'm glad I purchased the 2yr Geek Squad warranty although I had to wait 1.5 weeks to get an appointment to fix the radio. The tech told me the problem was not the radio but this interface module. They replaced the module and it works fine now. I would've given a higher review if I didn't have to ride around for 1.5 weeks with no music. I could not even power off the radio. The radio would turn on again and begin going thru the sources.

      I was a bit leery on purchasing something like this over the internet, but I was pleasantly surprised. I have purchased a system in the past and then needed another 100 plus bucks in parts to make it work. With this interface, the only thing I needed was a small connector harness that cost 14.00. The system works great and now on cold winter mornings I have a nice warm car....and no frost on the windshield. Just remember to turn it all on before you leave the car the night before.

      Keywrap not required for HKey using this

      This was part of the package deal that i bought which included the 2 Way Viper 4806V Remote Starter and the Geek Squad installation. First spoke to an installer to get all my queries clarified, scheduled installation and got this installed in my car. Its been more than 2 weeks and it works like a charm. This engine bypass module doesn't require a Key Wrap and solves the 128 Bit encryption of the cars having H Key. Would definitely recommend this product so that people can go ahead and use this to install remote starter without needing a key to be kept in the car.

      This model uses your factory key fob as the remote so you don't need to have excess fobs on your keychain. So range depends on your default factory key fob. I was nervous about the remote start not having a timer or somehow turning the car off. But after about 15 minutes, the car will turn off. And when you get into the car, if you slightly press the gas, the car registers it and deactivates the auto turn off safety feature.

      Don't buy if you need installation

      My overall rating is actually ZERO stars. Bought this item in December and it is now February and I am still not getting anywhere with the installation. Called several times with no help from anybody went to actual store and got "I can't help you but we will call you" needless to say no call so either the item goes back or refund the installation charge. Horrible business practice, Don't sell if you can't install!!!!!!! Sorry can't rate an item you can't use.
