I've got a Clifford 10.5 Matrix
and a DEI 561T Remote Start Module.
Its great and everything, but when I engage the remote it doesn't register on my LCD remote. This sucks because if I'm out of visual range but still in the LCD to Brain unit range I don't know if I started by car or not...
I've heard the only way to get it to show up on ur remote is through a bit writer. I doubt any car audio places around here or going to have one... Is it complicated to do? How much/where do I get a bit writer.
Thanks,
Nate

You can get a Bitwriter on eBay for about $80...best bet is to check with any local shops that sell DEI product. They will most likely have one in their shop and if you're friendly I don't see why they wouldn't program it for you for a small charge.

Checked out a local shop and they said its impossible to do it.
Because its an Add-on unit there is no way to have the brain unit register the LCD icon.
Is this fact or fiction?

Here is the manual on this site for the Clifford Matrix 10.5. 

Read the description on page 28, about feature 3-5.  If channel 3 is programmed for remote start monitor and wired to the 561T's activation input,  that should do what you want it to. 

I'm not positive what the HHU is (it's not referenced elsewhere in the manual), but I'm assuming that's what they call the 2-way remote.  Read your alarm owner's manual to make sure.

Wow, every shop around here either doesn't have a bit writer or is incompetent and doesn't even know what one is bitwriter w/ 561t and clifford brain - Last Post -- posted image.. I had one guy tell me I need a bypass module (457G) for it to work, didn't even understand my question!

you have to go to shop that sells viper/python etc. you think they still what a bitwitter was.
first you need to find out if the remote can see an "add on unit" im not sure, never been though this one b4. may want to call some shops and ask, call several and see haw many answers you get. a lot of people think or just head it can or cant.

I don't think the remote accepting an add-on unit is going to matter all that much - you can't activate a 561T directly with a remote in any case.  The important thing seems to be that the Clifford piece knows that it's activating a remote start.
