Unable key take over after successful remote start BMW 1 Series

0 votes
EVO-ONE and INT-BMW.2 installed on 2008 BMW 1 series (135i, E82, PTS).

Ready mode is sucessfully set. Remote start is sucessful via OEM fobs or Drone (3G).

After remote start, user unlocks with OEM fob and enters car and then shuts door. Press foot brake and car will shutdown. Inserting key fob or keeping fob in pocket has no affect.

Shouldn't the user be able to unlock, enter and drive away?

Options set per Guide # 61951



I looked at the guide for INT-BMW.2 for EVO-ALL and noticed the 'unlock' input from stand alone RS to EVO-ALL. The INT-BMW.2 with EVO-ONE diagram does not have this. When I provide an unlock signal to the INT-BMW.2 (ground pulse), I can sucessfully execute key take over. So the unnlock signal must be missing.

The INT-BMW.2 and EVO-ONE have a data link connection, I assume this provieds the unlock signal in this setup. However, I am  not getting this to work. Is there a configuration setting to set? Do I need to set the Data Link options to Fortin?

Definitly need to connect purple/white from evo-one to white of int-bmw2. The datalink between intbmw2 and evoone are a little different, simply connect the two wires together. For successful takeover unlock must be sent from an aftermarket remote or drone.

Thank you for clearing that up. Maybe the guide for EVO-ONE install should be updated to reflect this! Unlock output from EVO-ONE to unlock input on INT.2.

So take over is only possible from non-OEM remote? If user only wants OEM FOB, they must shut the engine down and restart?
How did you solve this problem finally? I also installed evo-one with int2 and the engine is turns off after the brake is pressed. And yet, the engine is not turns off from far away with 3 clicks on the lock.
