The directed 998t will make programming all your D.E.I alarms and some amps very fast and painless. Unlocks many options that you wouldn't be able to access without the programmer. The only cons are the plugs on the programmer seems a little fragile. A absolute must have if you install alarms.

Worth its weight in gold

December 7, 2011

For setting up and installing any DEI car alarm this is a must have. Makes going thru the options much easier and quicker. Change settings otherwise locked out when setting up via the Valet button. Couldnt ask for an easier and more simple way of doing things.

Handy tool for alarm install

December 4, 2012

Worth picking up if you are doing a self install. Allows you to set up the alarm much easier and make quick adjustments. In the high end model alarms you would need this to program the feature's.

Installer's Best Friend

September 23, 2012

I've exclusively installed hundreds of Directed products over the past decade, because of their outstanding quality. Unlike many manufacturers; Directed products are shipped pre-programmed; which in some cases can save an hour of frustrating programming. The Bitwriter 998t makes programming effortless. No more counting flashing lights, annoying honking horns, or loud sirens. It reduces even a simple five minute program into seconds. In the world of retail time is money, and if you are a professional installer, the Bitwriter 998t will most likely pay for itself in a week.

Directed 998T a must have for Avital remote starter

May 10, 2012

I would strongly recommend this item for programming any remote starter which has the port for programming.

The cables needed to hook up could be made better. The connector to the remote starter came off after the few times it was used. You need to be very careful in removing, and be sure not to pull on the wires. This can be difficult depending on the location of the remote.

The unit should be able to program additional remotes. It doesn't have this feature. You must go to the remote starter, and program using the buttons on the remote starter unit.

A need to have for install

September 22, 2015

the bitwriter has made my DEI install so easy. Read / Write and save your system configs. Mine came with version 2.9 (site says 2.7) which was perfect to install my 5906v system. Every programmable option was avail, and some only with this. Nice tool.

As an aside, Sonic shipped all of my products fast, accurately and I could not be happier with them as merchant. I will be back for more products as needed.

will this program any car?
james s on Oct 5, 2015
Best Answer: sorry guys, I don't check my email regularly. this an awesome tool. you can use this tool to any alarm that is bit write compatible to change the settings of the alarm instead of doing it manually. this tool is not meant to program immobilizer keys { if that's was your asking }.I have a viper responder 5704 bit writer compatible .so remember your not programming the car to the alarm your changing the settings of the alarm with this tool as long as the alarm is bit writer compatible. changing settings like remote start timer how long would you like your car to run 10 15 30 minutes option....interior light setting......alarm chip you can turn off or on.....vibrate or chip on the remote....ect......this tool changes this settings easily

Will this allow one to Unlock a Viper Remote Start system if an installer locked it with a Bitwriter?
Gary B on Jul 20, 2016
Best Answer: It should, according to what I have been able to figure out. I am able to make changes to all systems that are listed on the menus, but I do not have a remote start hookup. Another commenter seems to have used it for that app. Good Luck! D J
