Our take on the XpressKit XK05

by Gabrielle Thorndyke
Viper

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 route commands through your vehicle's data system, so your signal'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 XK05 to remote start all late-model Toyota and Lexus vehicles equipped with proximity Smart-Key or Push-to-Start ignition systems.

Highlights:

  • remote start data interface for Python alarm systems
  • preloaded for use in select Toyota and Lexus vehicles equipped with proximity "Smart Key" or "Push-to-Start" systems
  • no key required — works with your factory databus
  • included 10-pin harness provides wires to connect to your factory system
  • maintains factory alarm interface controls
  • 2-7/16"W x 13/16"H x 1-13/16"D
  • warranty: 1 year
  • Our 60-day money-back guarantee

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.

Features

Overview: The XK05 Programmable Immobilizer Data Override interface is preloaded with upgradeable firmware for select late model Ford, Mazda, Pontiac, Toyota, and Lexus vehicles, including the Smart-Key Push-to-Start ignition type systems. The XK05 temporarily overrides the factory immobilizer when remote starting your vehicle using an aftermarket remote start (sold separately) while maintaining the integrity of the manufacture's factory anti-theft system when remote start is not used.

Compatibility: The XK05 is compatible with select 2000-2010 Ford, Mazda, Pontiac, Lexus and Toyota vehicles using secure data transfer, while maintaining the integrity of your vehicle's factory anti-theft and alarm system.

Note: Check the Crutchfield "Outfit My Car" to verify compatibility with your vehicle.

Upgradeable: The XK05 features a 4-pin data port which allows internet upgrades and firmware changes through the optional DEI XKLOADER module (sold separately) when connect to your PC.

Xpresskit XK05 for 2009 Ford F150 SuperCrew XLT

Written By Dustin, Beavercreek, OH on Monday, December 10, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Used this with my Python 414 remote car start. Go's well with the product. I like the D2D plug in. This allows for less wires to be wired into another. Directions were confusing as far as the programming because it makes you think that you need to remove the sensor from the ignition when programming the unit with your vehicle. This is not the case for the Ford F150. Other than that confusing part the rest is quite simple. Go by the directions exactly as stated.
Pros:
Easy installation and great Tech Support. Also it is half price when you buy a remote start at the same time.
Cons:
Feels cheap but does the job. Confusing portion of the directions which indicates the sensor of the vehicle.
