I think I understand. The DB-ALL is listening on the HSCAN for the 3xlock to trigger the start?

At the time I was thinking that if I needed a separate start module, why would the DB-ALL have wires to the ignition? I think I get it now.

Side question... does the DB-ALL typically come with the protection diodes and 12v relay or will I have to source those separately?

Very cool! I think I'm going to pull the trigger on this one. Maybe even document the process and post it here.
