Directed Returns 3X Lock Press To Basic Remote Start
Jul 22, 2015

Directed is reinstating the lock press 3X feature for its DBALL2 remote start data modules.

The feature now lets you use the DBALL2 data module as a remote starter without the need for separate transmitters on your key ring. The user can simply use his factory car key transmitter to activate remote start by pressing on the lock button three times. Last September, Directed removed this feature and allowed it only on the higher end Directed Digital Systems (4X10 & 5X10) models.

Effective July 20, the feature returns to the lower end DBALL2 modules.

“It provides more options to the installers and customers,” said James Turner, VP of Product Planning. “Instead of just having one platform that may have more features than required for the application, we’re giving them an entry level option.”

DBALL2 modules allow remote starters to work with the bus system in different cars because they can be computer programmed or flashed to work with each car. With special firmware, some cars don’t need a separate remote start module.  And with the new lock 3X feature, they don’t necessarily need a new transmitter as well.

Shawn, Mike and the guys at Car Tunes can do anything! Plus, they are knowledgeable, patient and do what ever it takes to satisfy you. I have been taking my business to them for the past 10 years years, they have installed systems in my trucks, cars, boat and my classic 1971 Olds 442. Hell they even fixed my door lock on the 442, I could not find the part so they fabricating the part. These guys are fast, reasonable, and above all else, the best in the area. If you need to make a return trip (which is very rare), there is no hassle or run around like so many other stores do, they just fix it. Period, these guys do it right - THE FIRST TIME! I am not big on referrals, but have never thought twice about sending family, friends and even my customers to them. I can't recommend them highly enough if you want good, honest and personal service take your business to Car Tunes.
