2015 RAM 1500 Push to start never gets to step 5 (Stays solid yellow)

0 votes
I have completed a master reset, and programming just the CAN-BUS works properly.  When pressing the ignition button (push to start) the unit never goes red.  (The documentation that came with mine shows a keyed unit, so I'm going by another guide I found saying to hold the fob up to the push-to-start button and push it twice.)
I have reprogrammed the unit a number of different ways (including everything off but the two 'recommended') and still no luck.  Right now I have A3 A7 D6 as the only ones enabled and it still just stays yellow.

If you plug in only the red connector on the evo are you able to start the vehicle using the oem fob with no batteries inside it?

I was being impatient getting it to see the key.  It took a few attempts, but it did finally pick it up.   Now everything kicks on as it should, just doesn't try to start unless I step on the brake.  (So it starts for like 3 seconds)

If it only starts when you press the brake pedal I would veirfy the connection made to the brake switch. This is how the evo replicates the brake signal.

That was it - thanks Derek!
They sent me the wrong guide and wirecolor claims my code was already used - so this has been quite an adventure.  :D
Glad you got it going!
