its in the notes of the xk532 that if there is no conventional starter wire to hook the RS starter wire to start input and attach a 1000 ohm resistor to ground

So do any of you know if this is the case with a 2008 Dodge Ram?
Once again thanks for all the help!
I'm hoping to get all this resolved on Monday or Tuesday.

Alright my first post in like a year.
Yes that is correct for the 2008 Ram.
Have him try the remote start with the key in the cylinder without turning it. It should start. If not, then his wiring is screwed up.
There are a couple unique things about this bypass.
1st- Make sure the 1000 ohm resistor is connected in parallel with the pink ignition input on the bypass to ground
2nd- programming sucks. That's why I use the data bypass for it.
3rd- make sure the bypass is programmed for CHDL7 firmware.
I personally take the bypass apart when programming to get the chip as close as possible to the SKIM module. And I take one key apart to do step 2 in programming versus jumping an ignition wire. However, it has been forever since I have programmed one of those and it will take me around 4 tries to program the bypass. FLCAN for the win!
Here's the guide if he needs it.

Yimke,
Thanks for your help.
I put the key into the cylinder and tried to remote start it.
No luck.....
Ignition comes on... A few clicks, dash lights flash, then the check engine light starts flashing.
No start.
Thanks for any advice!

Hi guys,
My Remote start is on the 12 min run time (default).
The installer did an awful job on install, and when I asked him what it was set for, he gave me a confused look and said "they are all different, I'm not sure".
I don't want to deal with this installer or the shop anymore.
Could somebody give me instructions on putting the 5901 into program mode and adjusting run time.
I also can't get the vehicles temp to show on the remote.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
Donald

the manual for the 5901 is on this site under downloads, just search for 5901. I have the 5901 myself and its quite easy to program the options, just a few pushes of the valet button. To get the temp to display you push the function button once, it will beep, then you push it (the function button) down again and hold it for about 3 seconds and the temp should display. If not then something might be fubar'd.

I have the manual that came with the system and looked at the online manual (same) and don't see instructions for changing the run time on the remote start.
When I press the function button 1 time it says "level 1" press again it says "level 2" and so on.....
Is something wrong with this thing??
Please help

The manual that came with the system is the user manual.

Look at the 5901 install manual and it goes through the steps needed to program everything.

the install manual does not come with the unit and only through the great work of people on this board is it available to the DIY.

yes you need to look at the installation manual not the user manual. And i said to push the function button once, then push and hold it for about 3 seconds.
