Firmware: VW03 Remote Start Ready (RSR) Installation
Rev.: 20130814
Update Alert: Firmware updates are posted on the web on a regular basis. We recommend
that you check for firmware and/or install guide updates prior to installing this product.
Installation Guide
This guide supports the installation of a DBALL in Remote Start Ready (RSR) mode. This solution offers
three (3) configuration options to control your system; 3x OEM Lock Remote Start Activation, RF Kit or
SmartStart (all sold separately). Refer to page 10 for a list of RF kits and their part numbers.
Refer to the Quick Reference Guide (QRG) at the end of this guide for more information on how to use
the various features offered with this product.
Note: Only available on certain models, check the Vehicle Application Guide for compatibility with
specific year and model.
Important!
This product is NOT compatible with vehicles equipped with a manual transmission.
Remote Start Ready (RSR) is a function that enables the interface module to remote start the vehicle
completely on its own. Consequently, there is no need for an aftermarket or an OEM remote starter in order to
start the vehicle from a distance.
The installer must make sure the RFTD Output feature option is active in order to benefit from RSR. See the Feature &
Option List section for more information.
This firmware does not support transponder override. One factory programmed key is required to install a remote starter.

Module Programming
Refer to the LED Diagnostics section of this guide for more information and for troubleshooting purposes.
Important
Make all the required connections to the vehicle, as described in the wiring diagram(s) found in this guide, and double check to
ensure everything is correct prior to moving onto the next step.
Note: Before connecting either the XL202 or SmartStart module to DBALL, it is important to ensure that the proper feature and
function programming is selected using XpressVIP (version 4.5 or higher). Visit www.xpresskit.com to download the latest version
of the application.
Warning! To take advantage of advanced features, you must use XpressVIP 4.5 or higher. Using version 2.9 or 3.1 will limit
available functions and features.
1. Connect the interface module to your computer using the XKLoader2.
2. Open an Internet Explorer browser (version 6 or higher), and go to www.xpresskit.com. The detail of the platform and firmware
that is currently saved on the interface module will be indicated in the top left corner of the page.
3. Select the year, make and model of the vehicle; the page will refresh to display the compatible firmware.
4. In the search result page, select one of the available install options (config for RSR, RXT or Standard install), and follow the
instructions provided on the screen.
5. Once you have configured your options, click on the FLASH button to upload the firmware onto the interface module.
6. The following message will be displayed when the upload is completed:
“The flashing is successfully completed. You may now unplug the kit.”
You can now proceed with the programming instructions below.
For vehicles with Regular Keys
SmartStart Installation (200/250 Revision B)
1
The DBALL module must be disconnected from any power source before
SmartStart can be connected to it. Failing to do so could damage DBALL.
a. Ensure that the Gray wire is connected to a ground source or the D2D
communication between the 2 modules will not work.
b. Do NOT connect the 2-pin harness (on SmartStart). Power and ground will
be provided by the DBALL D2D connector.
Connect SmartStart to DBALL using the D2D port.

Remote Start Ready (RSR)
Remote Start Ready (RSR) is a function that enables the interface
module to remote start the vehicle completely on its own.
Consequently, there is no need for an aftermarket or an OEM remote
starter in order to start the vehicle from a distance.
Runtime
The runtime is equivalent to the amount set for the OEM remote starter, which is 10
minutes. A maximum of 2 remote starts can be performed between ignition cycles.
Runtime Reset
The Runtime Reset feature allows the user to increase the runtime duration for a
maximum of 10 minutes. This can only performed ONCE per remote start.
Additional Features
(Must be completed by the installer.)
The following features are available with this product, but may not be compatible
with your vehicle. Refer to your installation facility for more information.
Controlled Door Lock
Smart OEM Alarm Control
3x OEM Lock Remote Start Activation
This feature enables you to start/stop the vehicle using the OEM remote.
Press the OEM remote LOCK button three (3) times within three (3) seconds to

What is SmartStart?
Now you can remote start, lock and unlock your car just by pushing a button on

Remote Car Starter
Trunk Release
Panic
Aux Channels
You can also control multiple vehicles – great for families – and assign more than

But, this is only the beginning! SmartStart is loaded with additional features
including GPS tracking, SmartSchedule, vehicle status, roadside assistance, home
control, parked car finder and more.
3.0 enables a "Cloud-Connected Car" like never before, providing an entirely new
level of 2-way interaction with your vehicle. Connectivity is managed through the
Directed Cloud Services (DCS) network linking car, app, end user, and the Internet.
For more information, visit www.mysmartstart.com.
The OEM remote lock and unlock functions are inactive when the key is
inserted into the ignition; therefore, the 3x OEM Lock Remote Start
Activation feature cannot be used for idle mode.
