Our take on the XpressKit PLJX

by Gabrielle Thorndyke

XpressKit modules work with your vehicle's anti-theft system to incorporate the convenience, security and luxury features of your Python™ alarm system.

An XpressKit interfaces with vehicles using an "immobilizer" key system, allowing you to remote start a car without disrupting factory-installed anti-theft features. It routes commands through your vehicle data system, so it's more secure. You have fewer wires to connect and, best of all, your extra key stays with you, not in your car.

Use the PLJX to remote start your 1993-up GM-built vehicle equipped with VATS or Passlock I or II anti-theft systems. This self-learning module programs in one step, automatically adjusting to the the resistor code value of your vehicle.

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.

Overview: The PLJX is a "Self-Learning" unit designed to bypass all GM vehicles equipped with Passlock I, Passlock II, VATS, and the new style Passlock immobilizer found in the Saturn ION and GM Colorado, Canyon, Cobalt and Pursuit. The PLJX automatically learns the resistor code value of any GM and generates the value on demand when remote starting so there is no measuring and matching of resistance values.

Compatibility: The PLJX is compatible with select GM vehicles and any type of remote car starter. The PLJX will maintain the integrity of your manufacture's anti-theft immobilizer system, security components, and convenience functions. Currently the PLJX supports the following GM vehicles.
