Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (aka MOLurch) and I look forward to helping you!”
This is how the Ignition Switch wires should go:
Constant 12 volts RED OR RED / WHITE
Ignition 12 volts PINK (+)
Ignition #2 WHITE (+)
Accessory ORANGE (+)
Accessory #2 BROWN (+)
Starter YELLOW (+)

I do not have a 413 Install Manual here, but IF there is NOT enough Ignition & Accessory input wires to cover the above Factory wires, then you have to use Relays for whatever is not available from the 413
You must power all the Ignition & Accessory wires above, or you will get Check Engine Light or over powered Battery Input wires which can result in blown fuses or burned Ignition Switch
Does your 413 have Auxillary Plug Output to power Accessory or Ignition thru Relay?

The viper is it's wiring as the avital you helped me with before on the liberty ....and a mountaineer. ......I've attached pictures......of the is utilizing an flcan module.....there is only one wire from it to the obd2 port to control locks....and tach learn....etc.....they had me put a relay in to use orange (-200mA) accessory output on satellite harness to go to brown second accessory wire from ignition would you wire this relay?......right now orange is 85 ....12v power to 86 and 30....and 87 is to my second accessory brown wire in ignition harness

When I hooked it all up......basically it was just heavy wires from viper.....then a data plug from flcan to viper.....OBD wire from OBD port to flcan.....and then brake pedal switch was hooked up from viper......remote start worked.....door locks worked.....everything worked.....except the idle was bouncing from 450 to 700 when the hvac was on......turn that off ...everything good......even when started by key it would do that.....unplug all remote start components. .....runs normal.....andfter adding the worked....title was normal......everything worked....except door lock.....unlock worked .....but no the remote start only initializes and turns car over. won't start........what the heck codes....on any's flipping aggravating

I apologize's a python 413 ...with the audiovox flcan module.....python says directed 4x03 just like avital......
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's giving me a code by flashing on the python box...4 flashes red.....transmitter shutdown or optional push button ......I assume that's what's keeping it from starting. ....any ideas..

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Pink/ white red/white orange yellow pink.....

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I got it reprogrammed and starting with he remote start. .....but the idle is irradic now with the hvac turned on......everything normal until hvac ...defrost .....
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 1 year ago.

how does it idle with Key start & on?

when in Remote Start, test each Ignition Switch wire & let me know which ones of the Ignition Switch have Voltage + under Remote Start

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's idling under remote start right now ....smooth .....for about first minute or 2 it surges.....only with hvac on though....but this time after about a minute or two it leveled does the same with key......
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 1 year ago.

IF it is doing the same thing with the Key & there is NO Check Engine Light On, then there is an issue elsewhere.
IF the REmote Start was connected correctly & the correct Security ByPass used, then you have a vehicle issue

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No issue till remote start installed...
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 1 year ago.

I understand.............I can only say that IF the issue did start until after the Remote Start Install, the DATA from the ByPass may have changed something or there was an Error wiring in the beginning that could have shorted or changed the Idle Control.
I say this, because I have never encountered an issue as you presented after "100's" of Installs.
Your best bet would be to have vehicle Scanned for Trouble Codes first, then have the Idle / A/C Circuit tested via GM Scan Tool.

I did that last hvac module power train codes.......only code in all modules present is a rear door module fault.......I can unhook all power from both the python and the flcan......and it runs each time I use remote starter to start it with the hvac left seems to smooth out quicker there a learning process........?
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 1 year ago.

Not that I am aware of........
It is easy to blank a Module for different components & Reset or Programming would be needed via GM Scan Tool or equal.
