i had a python 990 installed a couple months ago and it only came with one remote, ive since bought a second one for my spare key but i have no idea how to program it, any1 ever done this before and know how...or a link to instructions?
Yes, this is the winter set up...big things coming this spring!
transmitter/receiver learn routine™
The system comes with one transmitter that have been taught to the receiver. The receiver can store up to 4 different
transmitter codes in memory. Use the following learn routine to add transmitters to the system or to
change button assignments if desired.
The learn routine may be locked if previously programmed using the Bitwriter®. If the horn generates one long
honk when attempting to program the unit, the learn routine is locked and must be unlocked using the Bitwriter®
The Valet/Program switch, plugged into the blue port, is used for programming. There is a basic sequence of steps
to remember whenever programming this unit: Door, Key, Choose, Transmit and Release.
1. Open a door. (The GREEN wire, H1/8, or the VIOLET, H1/6 must be connected.)
2. Key. Turn the ignition to the ON position.
3. Choose. Within 10 seconds, press and release the Program switch the number of times corresponding
to the desired channel listed below. Once you have selected the channel, press
the switch once more and HOLD it. The LED will flash and the horn will honk (if connected)
to confirm the selected channel. Do not release the Program switch.
4. Transmit. While HOLDING the Valet/Program switch, press the button on the transmitter
that you would like to control the selected receiver channel. The unit will chirp to confirm
that the code has been successfully programmed. It is not possible to teach a transmitter
button to the system more than once.
5. Release. Once the code is learned, the Valet/Program switch can be released.
You can advance from programming one channel to another by releasing the Valet/Program switch and tapping
it to advance channels and then HOLDING it. For instance: You have programmed Channel 1 and you want to
program Channel 2. Release the Valet/Program switch. Press it one time and release it to advance from Channel
1 to Channel 2. Now, press and HOLD the Valet/Program switch. The LED will flash two times and the horn will
honk twice (if connected). As before, do not release it.
If you want to program Channel 3 after programming Channel 1, release the Valet/Program switch, press it twice
and release it to advance to Channel 3. Then press it once more and HOLD it. The horn will honk three times (if
connected) and the LED will flash three times to confirm it is ready to receive the code from the transmitter.
This is not a problem. All you have is lock unlock start and trunk right? So then all you need to do is auto learn. Which is channel one. Follow the steps and you will be fine. If not you can always go back to the shop and have them do it. I just sold my bitwriter or else i would have sent it off let you do your thing and sent it back. Odds are they did not lock programing. I never knew an installer that locked it.
yea...well i had a guy i used to work with do it, cuz he installs professionally but he did it for me cheap on the side...grrr...and i also have window up and down features he figured out so idk...ehhh i might jus give him a call n throw him a few bucks
he jus used the factory window mondule...it was one of those oh yea if u could do that" kinda things...i programmed it today and it works for all the features (lock, unlock, windows...) only thing is that i set the alarm off and only the original remote beeped telling me the alarm was going off...i mean i dont care because its jus the spare set to have so i dont hafta listen to my parents whine bout not having keys in case of emergency ...but im still a lil curious as to why that is...only thing i can think is that if i have em both next to each other only one will tell you...idk whatever...
but thanks again, you're the man!
