About the Directed XpressStart 4X10

Remote start your engine with your car's remote

Directed's XpressStart 4X10 Series module lets you start your vehicle remotely by pressing the lock button on the key three times. The 4X10 incorporates a digital interface that communicates directly with your vehicle's computer to bypass the normal security safeguards, so you can take control from a distance. You can pre-warm your car in the winter and pre-cool it in summer so it'll be just right when you get in. Once you install this module, you'll be able to start your car from as far away as your key will lock and unlock your doors.

Important Note: Because of safety concerns, we strongly recommend professional installation for remote start systems in vehicles with manual transmissions.

Increase the range with an optional remote system

If you need to start your car from a greater distance, Directed offers four extended-range options:

  • Viper 9656V RF Kit: 5-button 1-way remote with 1/2-mile range
  • Viper 9211V RF Kit: 1-button 2-way remote with 1/2-mile range
  • Viper 9856V RF Kit: 5-button 2-way LED remote with 1-mile range
  • Viper 9756V RF Kit: 5-button 2-way LCD remote with 1-mile range

Each kit comes with a spare 1-way remote, a control center module, and harness. In most cases you'll be able to add features like Silent Lock/Unlock, Car Finder, and Timer Start, as well as the ability to pop open the trunk or run the defogger remotely (relay may be required). The 5-button remotes have four auxiliary channels, so you can control other available functions like rear interior lighting and sliding doors in some vehicles.

Even farther with a SmartStart smartphone interface

The 4X10 works with all SmartStart modules, allowing you to start your car through your smartphone when you're in range, or to use the SmartStart service plan to remote start from any place in the world where you have cell phone service.

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 remote start system yourself. If not, please consider having your system professionally installed by purchasing an InstallCard.


To ensure vehicle compatibility, please enter your vehicle information in OutfitMyCar. Your order will be reviewed by our Car Experts group, who will contact you if further information or recommended accessories are needed.

Q
Will this work with a 2015 manual transmission Subaru wrx?
[ Javier  Feb 25, 2015 ]

I just installed this in a manual Volkswagen GTI. There are 2 ways to handle the clutch, one involves a special ready procedure, the other uses a relay output that is literally one wire hookup. If you want to change certain options you'll need to buy an additional xkloader2 to program it. I set relay 1 as 'grounded when locked,' this provides the clutch output so it can start.

You have to be very careful with the clutch inhibitor circuit. If the circuit is not done correctly, the engine could start in gear. Let a professional install it.

[ Erik  Feb 25, 2015 ]

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.

Q
Well this device bypass bluelink on a Hyundai and use the factory remote start that comes with the car?
[ Josh  Nov 12, 2014 ]

I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: In order to answer this question for sure, we would need to know the year and model of the Hyundai. Item 6074X10 will allow you to use the factory key fob to crank the vehicle in a lot of the newer Hyundai cars. However, to know for sure, and to answer the question more accurately we'd need to have additional vehicle information. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
