2014 VW Tiguan w/ EVO ALL remote starts, but the OEM keyfob is not detected when approaching the car.

0 votes
Installed an EVO All in a 2014 tiguan using guide #65501 and a T Harness.  The car remote starts fine, but when the driver approaches the vehicle with the smart key it is not detected.  They have to use the physical buttons on the fob to unlock the doors.  Is this the way it is supposed to work, or should it receive the signal as it does when not under RS?

This is normal operation, you must unlock with the factory remote.

I also installed an RF 442 2W, and when the car is under RS when I hit the start button it does not appear to extend the time as in the instructions.  Is there any other setting that needs to be made?
