2002 Ford Focus / Key-Override-All / Will Not Program

0 votes
Installed a Key-Override-All with a Crime Stopper 'CoolStart RS4-G5'.  The Crime stopper works great with a key in the ignition only to satisfy the transponder.

I have tried several time to program the Override unit with no success.  I am using Connection (1) with the Data Link.  The RX,TX and IGN wires are connected directly to the ignition switch transponder.  The Blue wire is connected to the Yellow/Black on the Crime Stopper (Ground When Running (Bypass Module).

I am using Program (2).  I press the programming button and plug in the 'Black Connector' and the (6) pin connector. The red light comes on.  I than program the keys and than hit the remote start.  The red light blinks (3) quick blinks and thats it.  The car never remote starts with teh 'Override' however the car will remote start and perform predictably as long as there is a PATS key in range of the transponder ring give me the understanding all is will except the 'Override' module.

Can you tell me what I am doing wrong?

Are your both keys original Ford keys ?

If not, one of them could be a copy of the first so the vehicle is seeing the same key twice which doesn't work.
