2018 Ford Focus Fortin RF Kit RFK411 Install possibly reflashing to allow rf kit to work?

0 votes
Some time back I bought a evo- one installed it correctly got everything programmed and was just using the factory oem keys to start my car. A couple of months have went by since i installed the remote start system now I'm looking at exstending the capability that I can start my car. Mainly to blame that I got tired of having to walk close enough to my car to start.

I want to make sure I get the programming instructions for the fobs (RFK411) correctly I keep seeing diffrent people do it different ways. The way things were shown in a youtube video you hold the button on the fortin modeul while pressing you plug in the power cable for the modeul once plugged in you keep holding until you get a blue and red light once blue and red you let go. After letting go you press the button again and hold unitl the lights start flashing. After the lights are flashing you instert your factory oem key and turn it the run postion once in the run postion you press and hold the button on the RFK411 remote for 12 seconds or just until it the evo one flashes telling you it has been programmed.

My big question is will i need to reflash my evo to allow my rf kit to work? I bought my kit from a guy who preprograms them before being shipping and im not quite sure if he has that setting turned on for my Evo one. Incase if that will i need to reflash and reprogram my evo and by doing so will i need to decript it after factory resetting it? and then going through all the steps of programming it

What is the S/N number on the back of the evo? I will let you know if it will need updating or not.
