Hi
Today I brought my Dodge Ram 2500 to get a Viper 5901 installed.
The guy got everything installed without problem (so he said).
When he was trying to program the key module he never got the start to work.
I think the module is XK531.
When I hit the start button the ignition comes on, radio and stuff, but no attempt to start.
I'm worried that he has something else done wrong and that's why it won't start.
Any advise????
The guy spent 4hours trying to "program it".........
Also I don't see a led bulb anywhere. Should I have a led on my dash?
Thanks
Donald

if its a 2006 or newer it the wrong bypass

if its expresskit it should be a xk532 or a DLPKCHG2 or the new dball or xk09 would work
if he is having trouble programing the transponder in the first two i have had to open them and touch the transponder to the key cylinder before to get them to program
the last two i mentioned do not use a transponder i don't think would have to look at the instructions

Thank you so much for the help!
My receipt said xk531......
I'm assuming that is actually what he used, although I didn't see it with my own eyes.
I will call them tomorrow morning to confirm.
Thanks!
Donald

You can also use a pkumux or ads-al-ca on that truck. You got this done at a shop and they couldnt figure out a 08 Ram?viper 5901, 2008 dodge ram -- posted image.

Yes I'm the customer.....
This shop is one of the 2 authorized dealers for viper. The guy said "my installer is the best around".....
Yeah right!
I'm asking the questions because I am extremely OCD and I need to know what's going on. Lol.
Yes I paid these idiots......
The installer said he couldn't reach tech support "because they are all at CES show". Which is total B.S. He also assured me that he installed a xk532 in my truck.
I think they are sitting around scratching their heads!!
I feel extremely sick about this now!
