First of all, great write up. I purchased the DBALL2, Xkloader, XL202 and T-Harness for my son's 2006 WK 3.7 Laredo as a Christmas present. We attempted to install today but have not been able to get it working.


A couple of things strike me as odd (besides the fact that it will power accessories but won't crank):
1) xpresskit says the flash goes okay but it shows my browser as Mozilla and not internet explorer.
2) after plugging the final blue connector to the DBALL2 I get a flashing orange light which indicates vehicle not ID'd. I turn key to "ON" per directions but still nothing. If I start the vehicle then green light flashes. I turn it off, hit the lock button and I'm good to go except ...


As I mentioned it will power accessories after hitting lock 3 times but it won't crank.


I'm at a loss. Does anyone have any suggestions.


Thanks,


Mike

I just wanted to follow up with the"fix" Make sure you use good light. I connected a red yellow rather than a yellow red. Switched it around and works great. I am sofa king we todd did!

Hey guys, I need a little help. I have the dball with the T harness. I hooked it up figuring it was plug and play. I programmed the module with the xloader from the site. Plugged the T harness in and attached the two seperate wires. Tried getting it all to work and nothing. My light started red and went to flashing green like it should. When i pull the key and hit the lock button to finish the program, the light goes to a solid red. I have it set to start by hitting lock 3x. I havnt had any luck yet. So is someting hooked up wrong or is it actually that tricky to get it to start from the lock 3x? Should I just add the xl202 with a rf to get it to work better?

Just wanted to update . So much to my surprise this morning, I'm telling my wife that my remote start doesnt work. I hit the button 3x and presto she fires right up I alomst fell over. She was laughing. Said I should of seen my face. So that means that I wired her up correctly. I'm thinking I will prob get the added xl202 module and remotes to make it easier.

I've been using the 3x lock for quite a while now and it works flawlessly for me.
