what is the Model / Part Number of the ByPass?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Xpress Kit DBALL2
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 2 months ago.

Does your F150 have Key Start or Push to Start?
When initiating Remote Start, what does the LED on the ByPass do?

Is the Factory Security Light on?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Key start. Light on bypass does nothing. Haven't noticed if the factory security light is on.
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 2 months ago.

IF there is NO Light coming On on the ByPass, then :
the ByPass Module is not receiving a Start Signal from the 4130R
or
The ByPass has NOT been Programmed via Instruction Manual

Do a RESET on the ByPass Module, following directions in ByPass Install Manual
Be sure there is "Constant Voltage +" WHITE / RED wire
Reprogram ByPass Module, following Type 2 Instructions in ByPass Module

Ok. Will try later. I had the bypass module flushed. Was thinking getting it reflashed

thanks

What color wire from the remote starter to the bypass module wire? Also the led light does nothing on the remote starter when pushing the button on the remote. And I have tired using the program button to set the run time. That button doesn't even make the led light on the remote starter come on
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Flashed
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 2 months ago.

do not set anything until the Remote Start works.
The ByPass is DATA Start to your F150
The only wire on the ByPass is the WHITE / RED
Be sure you have the HS CAN 1 & HS CAN 2 wires connected correctly at the 24 PIN Plug on the F150
Do you not have the ByPass Instructions?

I will recheck those connection. I do have a print out of the installation direction on the bypass module. None came with the new bypass module. Then do a reset. It doesn't say anything about white/red wire on bypass. It says to connect pink wire from remote starter to the grey/black on bypass module. Maybe that is what is wrong.

Reset bypass module. Light did not turn orange. Disconnected D2D harness Pressed program button in then reconnect D2D harness . Light went green then off.
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 2 months ago.

Have you tried Remote Start?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Does not work
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Their is no white/red wire on bypass module or remote starter
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 2 months ago.

It appears the Module is Programmed, as the GREEN Light means all OK
You must not be getting the Start Signal from the 4130R
Will OPT OUT & RELIST, as I do not have info on the 4130R
Please do not respond to this, as it will Lock Question
IF someone else can help, they will post here

thanks
