Turn On A7 through A11.

Also turn Off  A12 & A14.


The reason it wont turn off is because on this vehicle Fortin do not list 3x lock (https://fortin.ca/en/vehicles/nissan/altima/2008-push-to-start/) because the OEM remote is not detected when the vehicle is running.

So OEM 3xlock works by accident and I require an aftermarket fob?
If you want keyless entry and remote stop when vehicle is remote started, yes you would need an rf kit.

Remotes are monitored when the car is off, that's why you can start it with 3x lock. But unfortunately they cannot be monitored when it's running on the 2007-2008 Altima and G35/G37.  An RF-KIT is listed under "Required Technology" for these vehicles on the website.
