2013 Kia Optima SXL

I would like to know if the EVO-ALL can be used as a stand-alone remote start solution in conjunction with the Viper VSM200 module.

Thank you!

 There is no stand alone option for this vehicle. So besides for the VSM200 and the EVO-ALL, another unit would be required to actually control accessory-ignition-start.

Thank you for the response, Robert T..  Just to be sure I understand completely, you are saying the Optima presents a situation where the EVO-ALL cannot act as a stand-alone remote start option even though it does work for other vehicles, correct?

Correct! The EVO cannot control full remote starting on that vehicle.

Here is a list of a Stand Alone compatible vehicles.


Thanks again, Robert T.. Much appreciated although disappointing!


The EVO-ALL is first and foremost a bypass module. The stand alone feature was added sometime last year as an option for most low current push-to-start vehicles. Slowly, that list is ever growing! (there was less then 300 cars last year).

When doing a vehicle search on ifar.ca, there will be a complete section for Stand Alone compatibilities when the vehicle in question is compatible.
