Blinking amber light on start button 2016 CX-5

0 votes

The module seems to work fine, I have completed every step in the installation guide. However, the start button does continuously blink amber/orange while the vehicle is running and does not stop until the engine is shut down. This only happens when started normally, not remotely. If I disconnect power to the EVO ONE, the car can be started just fine and there is no blinking light. I used the THAR MAZ 3 t-harness to install. I have been scouring the Mazda forums and have found no answer. Everyone says either replace the fob batteries (I replaced them) or visit the dealer. The mazda dealer wanted $150 to diagnose the problem, and then doesn't want to even look at it after learning the Fortin system was installed.
