2015 Subaru Forester key start, evo-one will remote start with oem key fob, but will not stop with oem key fob.

0 votes
Just installed evo one in 2015 Subaru Forester, key start, automatic trans with fortin T-harness.  With the oem key fob I can remote start, no problem.  However when I push the lock button 3 times to shut off car--it does not stop it!  Any advice would be most appreciated.

Does the blue led flash each time you are hitting lock once remote started?

Also per Jesus instructions I did enable option 6.2, for issue number 1.

It does work, but the reason why is that it simply disables the oem alarm.  This unacceptable to me, unless I'm missing something, which I probably am!

The horn wire can be found easily in 2 spots, either at the steering column connector  Pin 9 in a white 14 pin connector OR at the BCM  Blue wire, at the top 34 pin white connector Pin 24. Photos for both are available at wirecolor.com

 

Thank you,
Thanks Jesus,

If thats the case I have already hooked up the horn as this is part of the 2015 key start Subaru Forest install instructions.

I will enable the evo alarm and test and let everyone know!

Thanks,

Thanks to everyone who has helped me with this issue, I really do appreciate all the great advice.

After playing around with the options that Robert T. and Jesus suggested this is what I have now that will work for me, but things do not work perfectly:

Concerning issue 1):  

Simple solution was to disable factory alarm.  On my 2015 Subaru Forester key start , the factory alarm can be turned on and off by simply sitting in vehicle, turn ignition to on, press driver door unlock button and hold it.  Within one second, open door and keeping holding button about 10-15 seconds.  Horn will beep and dash will inform you either the factory alarm has been turned on or off (AL is on or off).

I then turned off function 6.2 (unlock b/4 remote start & lock after remote start).  By turning off factory alarm, simply not needed.  I am using the default option here:  No.

Concerning issue 2):

Following Robert's suggestion I turn on the alarm feature 14.2.  This is as Robert said much better and factory alarm as it will sound the horn and vehicle will shut down when alarm goes off if vehicle is remote started or in idle mode as long as evo one alarm is armed.

I combined this option with 38.2 and 38.4 which allows me to remote start the vehicle with the factory fob lock button by pushing it 3 times.  And the factory fob will also arm and disarm the evo one alarm with the lock and unlock buttons. How I did this I don't know.  Function 38.2 was already enabled along with C1 on the bypass side.  I simply used the programming feature as outlined in the evo one manual and the fortin remote to enable all these features.  By doing so I did not have to remove evo one unit and use the flash update tool.  Being lazy here.

I did not use the function 37.2 as the alarm already kills the vehicle if any alarm is triggered.

Now after extensive testing:

1)  Before remote start:  Oem key fob will before remote start:  Lock, unlock doors and turn on and off evo one alarm and open power lift gate.  However if the evo one alarm is on, when either the factory key fob or the fortin remote opens the power lift gate the alarm is turned off and will not re-enable itself  after the power lift gate is closed. You must reset the evo one alarm by pushing the lock button on either one.  The factory oem alarm will automatically re-enable itself after power lift gate is closed.

2)  After remote start: with either remote with alarm enabled before remote start this is what I have found:

a)  factory key fob will not stop remote start by pressing lock button 3 times, the fortin remote do so perfectly and does not disable the evo alarm.

b)  Factory key fob will not open power lift gate however by pressing it, it will disable the evo one alarm.  The fortin remote will both disable the evo one alarm and open and close the power lift gate but to turn the evo one alarm back on you must press the lock button on either remote.  

This is what I have found thus far, but I do like having some kind of alarm and immoblelizer (starter kill) if alarm is triggered either running or not!

If I can be or any assistance to anyone to improve or test future firmware and additional options I would consider a privilege considering the time and patience that has been given me.

As always if there are some options that I have missed I would appreciate any additional advice.

Thanks all,

Bruce 

HOW DID YOU GET YOUR OEM SUBARU KEY FOB TRANSMITTER ( REGUALR KEY, NO PUSH-to start) PROGRAMMED TO REMOTE START THE CAR?

I HAVE A CROOSTREK WITH EVO ONE.  BUT IT SHOULD BE THE SAME . I CAN'T FIND THE INSTRUCCCIONS TO DO IT.
