What's the difference between ADS and DBI? Is it hard to access the module behind the glovebox and do you think anyone can install it (I have quite a bit soldering experience but not on cars)?
DBI and ADS are protocols that allows the bypass module (al ca) to talk to remote car starters such as viper with a data cable. For instance it will tell the Starter that the brake has been pressed or that the door or hood is open without physically hooking up wires between the two units.
