Fortin Evo-All 2011 Audi A3

0 votes
I'm trying to do a standalone installation of the EVO-ALL on a 2011 Audi A3.  All of the wires are connected correctly and I made sure they are making a good connection.  I held the prgramming button down and the lights started alternating.  I relaesed the button when only the blue LED was lit.  I then plugged in the 20 pin, connector, followed by the 6 pin connector, followed by the 5 pin connector.  The LED remained blue throughout this process.  I then turned the ignition to on.  The bule LED went out, then started flasing after a few seconds.  I turned the ignition off and the blue LED went out. When I press the factory remote 3X to start the vehicle, the lights flash and the dash lights come on, but it doesn't try to start.  It does the same thing a second time and then the EVO-ALL turns off.  However, if I sit inside the vehicle and press the brake, it will start the car, but it only runs for 1 or 2 seconds before shutting down.  On this particular vehicle, although it uses the regular keyed ignition switch, you still have to press the brake to start the vehicle.  Is there another connection that needs to be made for this to work properly?

 

Thank you,

Jason

If you need a brake press, take a look at this guide (for reference only) to get an idea of the type of connection needed. It's highlighted in yellow on the connection page: https://cdn.fortin.ca/download/60301/evo-all_ig_sal_bi_vol-jetta_2015-2016_key_b_60301.pdf



You need to split the (+)starter output  (Yellow/Red) of current installation in two. Send one to the brake and another to the starter wire. Dont forget to add diodes.

If you keep your foot on the brake after the car has remotely started, it will definitly shut down. Need to release the brake once it's started.
