Evic turns on while Jeep is off, doors locked?
 
So I have a look outside my house a few moments ago and notice that the Evic is on in my Jeep. It has the "press brake pedal and button to start" displayed. I go out and check. All doors are locked, so is the lift glass. My fob is 20-30 feet away in the basement of all places.

So I grabbed the fob, went out and unlocked, then locked the doors. Evic still displaying the same thing. After a minute it finally turned off. So I go back inside, back down to the basement to put the fob on my desk. I go back up and look outside and guess what, Evic is on again. WTF?!:confused::mad:

Not really sure man.

Sounds like a door pin switch maybe? Does it say a door is open too?

Where's the second fob?

Doors aren't open. Both fobs are 20-30 feet away. I checked on my Jeep a few times during the night and again now and the Evic isn't on. Weird stuff.

The issue I stated above was that the Evic was acting like the fob was in the Jeep.

Oh well, technology huh? lol

Try removing the start button and see if it the EVIC still appears.

typically it says press brake pedal to start when it senses a key, try to grab a handle and see if your passive entry unlocks the vehicle, in which case you know a key is close enough.

You notice anything that could be "disturbing" the front door handles? On mine it seems like if the handle sensors sense anything inside them, they turn the EVIC on.

I haven't experienced the issue since. Oh well:werd:
