How to Program a Python Remote Start

by Matthew Fortuna

Among the leaders in car security systems, Python also features remotes that offer keyless entry and remote-start transmitters. These remotes allow you to access your car alarm, panic alarm, door locks, trunk and automatic starter from as far away as a couple of hundred feet. You can program your remote from home in just minutes with no prior experience. The programming can be done with just the remote, your ignition key and the vehicle.

Insert your key into the car's ignition and lock all of the doors and the trunk behind you.

Turn the key in the ignition to the "On" position and press and hold the unlock button on your remote for one second to unlock the remote.

Press and hold the "F" button on your remote for 12 seconds until the red indicator light turns solid.

Press and hold the unlock button on your remote for two seconds until the indicator light blinks twice.

Press and hold the lock button on your remote until the red indicator light blinks again to signify that the programming was successful. You can now turn the key to the off position to exit the programming sequence.
