If you ground the ground out yourself, then initiate remote start does the vehicle remote start and stay running?

Yes I tried grounding out the ground wire and still nothing,red led will turn on and dash lights comes on but no crank,

what I notice is when I insert the key in the ignition barrel the red led would flash rapidly and stays solid.

i even flashed the evo key to the most resent i need to turn on anything in the options?thanks
No their are no options for an evo-key.


If you place the key next to the barell not in the barell does the vehicle remote start?
I lace the key next to ignition barrel still nothing,

After attemp of remote start no crank the dash lights stays on the only I can turn off the dash light is to un plug the remote starter itself.
Also when I start the car with the key and remove the key the car stays on till I press the brake pedal
If the remote starter cannot start the vehicle with the key next to the barell you have an issue with the remote starter wiring/configuration. I would start their first.


The remote starter must be able to remote start the vehicle with the key next to the barell.
Ok,I will check that,but I reset the evo key now when I try to program it  red led would flash 10x but would just stay solid and I’ve been trying to program it 5x steady and it’s doing the same thing
UPDATE:I got it working,I had one of my remote start wire tap into the ignition 2

so I removed it and tap it to starter 2 wire


thank you for all the help and patience,I really appreciate it
Glad you got it going!
