OK, I'm a bit confused...or maybe I understand this better than I think (fat chancecanmax400dei, 2004 acura tl -- posted image.).
I have a 2004 Acura TL (Manual Transmission). I plan to purchase and install myself a Viper 5901, Clifford 50.7x, or Python 991 with the new CANMAX400DEI D2D plug in module. I also will purchase the XK loader to flash the correct firmware to the CANMAX
CANMAX400DEI install manual
Viper 5901 install manual
After reading both manuals, I'm still unclear on what wires from the RS/Alarm module still need to be connected if using D2D between the CANMAX and the Viper (or Clifford or Python). Here's what I think needs to be connected (in addition to the 4 wires from the CANMAX to the car):
H1/H2 12-v constant
H1/H3 Siren output
H1/H5 Chassis Ground
H2/H8 Horn Honk output (???)
any aux input that I want added (i.e. anti-jack/tilt)
What else? Is it that simple? What am I missing? What about tac input? Will the CANMAX get that from the bus and send it to the unit?
Next question:
What about programming? Both units need to be programmed, which do I do first?
Anything else that I'm missing?
Thanks!

Just purchased a Clifford Matrix 50.7x for my 2004 Acura TL (manual transmission). I'm thinking about using the new canmax400dei for my bypass/door lock interface modul. I like the features of the canmax400dei and the fact that it plugs into the 50.7x.
Has anyone used a canmax400dei or have any comments/reviews?
Thanks.

d2d is a 3pin wire if i remeber that goes from the rs or alarm unit to the bypass unit. in the d2d, it controls gwr (status output), power and ground. so it saves you a few mins.

do not use data tach if you can avoid it. tach through databus connection never worked for me but some were sucessful for others. program the remotes to the brain then program the bypass. also make sure you unit is manual tranny compatable.

From everything I've read, the regular XKLoader will work just fine.

OK, the XKloader2 is $120 and the XKlint is only $25. I know the loader2 will flash the canmax while it's docked and I think the XKlint requires the canmax to be undocked.
What would be the advantage to spending an extra $100 to use the XKloader instead of the XKlint?
Thanks!

It's actually a 4-wire link, but yes you are correct in it's previous design. However, due to patent licenses, that R&D has now gone to h*ll. It no longer integrates or operates as it was previously designed and does not save any time. At best, you lose time contacting support, to trouble shoot why it doesn't work as designed and stated in the manual. Then, only to be told the un-informed support, it never was designed that way.

Ideal - cmon dude, add to topics in a useful manner, not stuff that is obvious.
Story - Phzzzt! Hey, what happened?! ... Isn't it obvious?
Moral - Never dismiss the obvious.
