Bypass Essentials modules work with your vehicle's anti-theft system to incorporate the convenience, security and luxury features of your Python alarm system.
Universal bypass modules work with any vehicle using an "immobilizer" key system, allowing you to remote start your car without disrupting factory-installed anti-theft features.
Use the 556U universal bypass in vehicles equipped with a transponder or RF-based immobilizer, such as those found in many late-model GM vehicles. The compact module is tunable for European or domestic vehicles and features tamper-resistant circuitry.
Important Note: One of your car's transponder keys will be permanently installed in the 556U module. You can buy an extra key through your dealer and have it programmed to work with your car's immobilizer. Ask your dealer if keys can be programmed individually some vehicle manufacturers require that all keys be reprogrammed at one time.
Important: If you know how to use a multimeter and have experience working with your vehicle's electrical system, you should be able to install this car security equipment. If you're unfamiliar with installing car security equipment, please speak to an Advisor before attempting this installation. Note: Before purchasing, please call us at 1-888-955-6000 to confirm that this product works with your vehicle.

This product did not fit my mercedes key.
Overview: The 556UW immobilizer interface module is used when installing remote start products (sold separately) in select vehicles equipped with an RF (Radio Frequency) based immobilizer system. This type of system uses a small chip imbedded in the ignition key, called a transponder, to transmit a very low powered RF signal. This signal is picked up through an antenna (or coil) around the ignition switch which is then sent to the immobilizer's transceiver. Once the correct signal is received, the immobilizer will enable the ignition and/or fuel systems. If an attempt is made to start the vehicle and the transceiver does not receive a valid code, the ignition and sometimes the fuel systems are disabled. The immobilizer system will then render the remote start useless. The 556U bypasses the immobilizer system only while the remote start is in use, maintaining the factory system's integrity. When the remote start system is not in use the factory immobilizer remains fully functional.
Installation: The 556UW requires an active key from your vehicle to be installed inside the immobilizer interface module. The 556UW is then mounted underneath your vehicle's steering column. The 556UW immobilizer interface module features the following connections.

You will want to contact an Advisor by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat to discuss compatibility with your factory system. They will be able to pull up your vehicle and see if this will integrate. If it does not, then they will also be able to discuss other options with you. [ Kenny Feb 15, 2016 ] Staff
