The programming you are describing is for a 2013 and up ram truck.

You should be following the programming in this guide for 2009-2012

Yellow ON with ignition is totally normal.
Derek,  Thanks for the input.  I am using that guide, but at the end of the process, the yellow LED eluminates instead of the blue LED.  I went back again this morning to try it again just to make sure, but the results were the same.  I wish it was as simple as me using the wrong guide.  

Mathieu, if it is normal, why wont the remote start work?  The instructions say it should be blue after a successful program attempt.  I may be missing something or there may be something unique to this truck.  It seemed stock when I bought it used from the orignial owner.

One thing this has is a kill switch I can pull.  The dealer added it as a security feature.  Could that be causing the remote start to fail?
It may not remote start if the options arent enabled inside the unit.


What happens if you ground the dark blue wire on the 20 pin connector of the evo, what led turns on?
Hi Derek,

I found a reference to that very test late yesterday and the LED turns red.  This means it's not programmed to be a stand alone module.  Right?  If so, I'm not sure what to do other than return the unit.  




correct, in that case you would want to contact the point of purchase and were to go from there.
