2019 Mazda 6 not starting after successful programming with evo all

0 votes
Hey everyone,

I'm trying to install an EVO-ALL in standalone mode on a 2019 Mazda 6 with a T-Harness.

I initially successfully programmed the module with the two keys, and then successfully completed the CAN procedure as well. Unfortunately I could not get it to start, the module would have the red and orange lights on but would make no effort to crank the car.

I tried starting over by resetting the module, and now whenever I repeat the programming process I see a flashing red light, which supposedly means that the keys are already linked to the unit. Doing the CAN procedure now also results in all 3 lights cycling instead of the single blue light going off. Simply plugging the module in results in all 3 lights flashing.

I'm not entirely sure where to go from here. I'd like to start over but I'm not sure how to do that.

Please provide the S/N number on the back of the evo.


With the 2 key programming method you have followed you cannot simply "reset and start over", that was why it was flashing red.


If you proceeded to try and reprogrm just can-bus you have then put the evo into an entirly different programming mode.

I appreciate the help Derek! My apologies, I didn't realize I put it into another programming mode. Please let me know what I need to do to return to the previous mode.

The S/N for this EVO-ALL is 001A07160916.
master reset the evo: https://cdn.fortin.ca/en/download/61931/61931.pdf


Once that is done plug it into a computer and run dcryptor, let me know if dcryptor passes.
Thanks again Derek, I will give it a shot and let you know when I get a chance to work on the car
I reset the unit and ran decryptor but recieved a message saying "The immobilizer data received from the module is incomplete". I tried to reset once again but the same occurs.

I also noticed that if I try to turn off "Prevent options reset from a master reset" and click "save options" it does not actually stick. It seems to force this setting to ON.

Please let me know what I can do next
The next step will require you get a different evo-all and program it to the vehicle.


I suggest calling into technical support once you get a new evo so we can walk you through it to avoid this happening a 2nd time.
