Well..IF I feel the need to do this, I'll be dropping by when in Orlando. But, I have the 2013 LS itch going on..

I have an 08 ls. Just to confirm , the one one on ebay is all you need right? Dont need the xloader since it's already firmware loaded for your vehicle?

Also, I just try buying it off ebay and it say:
Sorry, this seller is on vacation, so this item is unavailable for purchase.

By the way...

The remote start right now in North Carolina is SOOO coming in handy right now. It's 95+ degrees everyday and brutally hot for this area.

I did not take any photos, because they really aren't necessary if you follow the instructions which are so very clear. I used T-Taps (red ones as the wire gauge is very thin).

Couple of things to note:

1. When all the wires are connected, remember to press the "push to start" switch three times. This will program the DBall module and the led will turn from red to green.

2. I did not connect the parking lights to the module, as apparently they will not light up if you leave your headlight switch on "auto" as I always do. I don't need my parking lights to be on while the car is running, so not an issue.

Honestly, this is as easy as it gets!

On a side note, this module is high quality and made in Canada. Very impressed. For a grand sum of about 80 dollars including the Ttaps and less than an hour of my time, I have remote start. UNBELIEVABLE.

I just got my DBALL2.

I dont' see any "push to start" button to press. Only a program button on the DBALL. Where is the 'push to start" button?

The push to start is the start button on your car.

If your asking this question, I would suggest someone installing this for you! And obviously you have not read the install instructions. It actually shows a picture of the PTS button.

The instructions does looks overwhelming.

I install the DVD/NAV bypass myself without a problem. Think this is more intense?

If your not up to it or feel uncomfortable with this type of diy... PLEASE TAKE IT TO A CERTIFIED INSTALLER... serious damage can be down to the car...it turns out that the car I mentioned earlier in this thread had nearly 11k in damage. . At least 1 wrong wire was connected too.. and at least 1 more grounded out to the chassis during the installation process.....

Called a couple of authorized dealer in my area and they quoted $300-$700 for the installation!
