Re: OEM Remote Starter
I missed this hail thankfully.
Ok so today I "completed" the install, and I can say it works!
One caveat- it works, SOMETIMES.
I'm about to go thru the motions of technical support with fortin (that I'll be fun given the time differences) but it will only start the car sometimes, which is strange. It's like the key hopper/decryptor key doesn't always register to start the car (basically it uses an over-ride as far as I can tell, but that code changes, and it doesn't always start the car).
I'll keep you posted on how good fortin are with technical support, all the wiring is ok, basically if I reprogram the module it works the first time, every time. After the initial remote start it won't seem to start the car again for another few attempts.. I tried just about everything I could think of, from keeping the OEM remote out of range during start attempt etc but to no avail. If I program the module and install it back in the vehicle it will remote start successfully first go every go, but not subsequent attempts (until about the 8th go at it or there abouts).
Anyways, I've pulled it out and tucked the harness up under the centre console for now until I get somewhere with fortin.
Cheers, keep you posted.
