ok i did have a can bus wire loose but now if i retry ur steps the blue lights flashes and goes out with key in ignition and i try to start it it flashes the blue light each time i hit lock but still no start?
So your telling me that the module has not been programed for the 3x by the Flasher box?
Ok so the module has now done all the programming succesfully? Thats great news!

It may be though that the module is not in stand alone.

Simple test take the drk.blue wire from the 20 pin connector and place it to ground tell me what the led's on the module do.
ok i grounded it . The blue light flashed for sec and red light comes on and stays on.
Alrighty so this tells us the module is not in stand alone which is why your vehicle won't remote start.

You need to enable option C1 (OEM remote monitoring) and D1 (stand alone remote start) for 3x lock remote start

This is done using the flash link updater 2.

Hello Mr. McIntosh,

During the programming sequence, I beleive before you cycle the keys, you must press the programming button once. Have you done that?

In any case, try doing a Master Reset before you do the programming. The Master Reset is as follows:

1. Remove all conncetors from the module.

2. Press & Hold the programming button and insert the four-pin connector.

3. The LEDs will alternate colors and release the programming button when the LED is Red.

4. When the LED is Red, Press & Hold the programming button again and the LEDs will alternate colors.

5. Release the programming button when the LEDs alternate colors at any point, then diconnect the four-pin connector.

Try this before programming. If you want to flash the module to a different firmware, it is recommended to the Master Reset after flashing and before progamming at the vehicle.

Thank you....
