Hello esteemed members. I'm beating my head over the install of a Viper 4806v and DBALL2 on a 2010 Toyota Tundra G Key. I've installed everything according to the DBALL instruction sheet. I've double checked the wiring according to the Type 2 connections specified. All of the solid black connection and not the dotted blue. The RS module is functional and the remotes were pre-programmed. I can lock and unlock the vehicle with the viper remotes. What I can't do is start my truck with the key nor will the DBALL2 program. I can soft reset it to solid red, activate the CAN bus to flashing orange, and insert my key to a quick off and then solid orange. When I turn the key to ignition on. The DBALL2 never goes to flashing green that indicates it is programming. I've verified the connections to the transponder harness they are correct and soldiered solid. So what am I missing that Directed failed to include in their wiring diagrams. Oh, I also did flash the DBALL with the correct TL5 firmware for my vehicle. Also, as an aside does anyone know how to get the Viper 4806v into programing mode? The button on the control/antenna doesn't seem to do anything. Using the instructions of inserting key turning ign on then off. Press 1 sec, release, press and hold 5 sec does nothing. I need to take the viper out of manual transmission mode and don't have a bitwriter to do it and don't plan to buy one just for this task. Can it be done with one of the remotes or a jumper connection? Thanks in advance to everyone for your wise experience.

Entering programming:
Ignition ON the OFF.
Press and HOLD the button on antenna until the horn chirps,(1,2, or 3 times) for which menu you want. Menu 1, Menu 2, Menu 3,
Release the button, then PRESS and RELEASE the button the number of times for the item within that menu you want to change.
Example: You want Item #4 Press and Release the button 4 times.
Then PRESS and HOLD the button.
Using the remote, press the lock OR unlock button. This will change the setting of your selection one item at a time, with a confirming horn chirp.
Example: Option #3 of a particular Item is selected, the horn will honk three times.
So, in your case. Changing to Automatic. Menu #3, Item #1, Option #2.
Ignition ON the OFF.
Press and HOLD the button. One horn honk, then two horn honk, then three horn honks. Release the button.
Press and Release ONE time, then press and HOLD. Use the remote lock or unlock button to cycle through the options.
You should get a horn honk for each of the options. Either on honk or two. More than that, you are in the wrong Menu, Item, Option.
It may take you a number of tries to get this procedure. It can be tricky for timing and button presses, but it can be done.
As for the DBALL issue. Maybe list all of your wire connections from the Viper, DBALL to what on the Toyota. Maybe other forum members can see a issue.

Thanks Smokeman1, I didn't hook up the horn wire because wanted it to use the built in OEM alarm chirp instead. It isn't doing that either so I'll hook up the Viper to the horn wire and give it a shot.

I saw another thread on the DBALL2 that talks about how flaky they can be. The poster said to flash the module a couple of times. Does anyone know if a bad flash could be the issue with the module not programming to the transponder?

Tried reflashing, it didn't work. Now the diagram shows connecting to the transponder via the connector in the steering column. Would it be better to connect to the passenger kick panel?

Use the connector at the steering column.
As I requested earlier to post a listing of ALL your wire connections from the Viper to what(and where) on the Tundra

I assume by your comment that you connected all of the black wires not the blue dotted ones you are using everything in D2D mode?
I've had issues with the dball not getting enough power to programming or function completely. With that said I always connect the 12 volt and ground wire for the bypass even know I use D2D for everything else.
I normally do not hook up the horn either, I find it annoying. Just watch the light on the antenna.

So far for me the antenna seems to be defective. The light blinks on it but the button doesn't do anything. I can't seem to get the Viper into programming mode. Pushing the button doesn't honk the horn or flash the parking lights even though I have the horn hooked up for now until I get things working right. The light blinks when I lock the doors with the viper remote but pushing the button doesn't change the blink rate or make it stay solid.

Is this a Refurb 4806 or NEW? There have been some forum members stating that some refurb units they have used have been LOCKED and not able to access the programming features. I have seen one myself.
If the doors lock and unlock via the Viper remote then the antenna is functioning as it is receiving the commands from the remote.
Your heavy gauge wires. The one you have listed as RS/4 is shown to be attached to a BLUE wire at the ignition switch. None of the wires guides I have looked at show a blue wire at the ignition switch.
RS/1, 4, and 7, and H/1 should go to a constant 12 volt source.
Light Flash. I don't see H/5 connected.

Are your connections quick connects? T-Taps? or soldered?
On your DBALL connections. Not sure since some of your wires connect to a different location than listed in the DBALL install guide.
Some of your Connections are connected to a different color than listed. Not that it is wrong/right, I can only go be the install guide. And some go to the dash fuse box. Not sure where that info comes from.
I don't see that in the DBALL install guide. Type 2 install
