Mazda 3 5dr (hatchback), Manual Transmission, RFID in keyfob.

0 votes
Vehicle type:
2011 Mazda 3 (5 door/hatchback), manual transmission, key to start. Integrated key/keyfob (lock,unlock,panic), keyless entry w/RFID chip for factory immobilizer system.
Remote Starter, Factory Immobilizer bypass, OEM keyfob (lock-lock-lock to start), alarm functionality optional at a later date.
Ready to install Evo-One, Flash-Link and RFK442.
Few problems so far (have not started install yet or any flashing of Evo-One vehicle specific Bypass settings):
   I see a conflict between Fortin wiring guide #80431 and #29661. Same vehicle, Mazda 3 - Axela 2010-2013, but two different wiring schemes.  Which one is the more correct one, or, can you suggest a better one?
   On Fortins website, for this vehicle it states 'Automatic Transmission Vehicles Only'  In Guide #80431, pg 5, it gives Manual Transmission programming instructions as does with Guide #29661 pg6, both of which conflicts with Fortins webpage.. 
   With Flash-Link v4.51, when entering vehicle info, there is NO option for Manual Transmission.
   In Guide #94011, pg11 (Function #20) Engine Supervision: Tachless, Analog or Data-Link.
I see there is no option for a true Analog input; i.e Vacuum switch, or hardwire to coil (or even a much older method of wraping 6in of stripped wire around a spark plug wire). Is there not a true analog tach input?
   I also cannot seem to anything at all about 'clutch bypass'
So, Manual Transmission? Yes or No? 
   For the Flash-Link Manager software, the v4.51 does not reflect the instructions I found for possibly older software instructions of Flash-Link Manager User Guide v1 #68731, any updated Guide #?
Flash-Link Manager software v4.51 (when I click on Settings in the software it shows v4.51-1.1.15)
Flash-Link V4 module, Hardware V5, Firmware v4.08
Evo-One module date 07/2021, s/n (PM me for serial number), Firmware: for a moment it showed v1.25 then within a few seconds dropped down to v1.01
Thanks, Nick.

No manual transmission as there is no Canbus system for this car, it will be dangerous. for automatic it uses tachless sensing.

You can use evo-all with a third party remote starter that supports manual transmission. this is the guide:


Your clutch bypass is purple color at clutch switch.
