2011 chevy cruze step 5 will not change from yellow to red just stays yellow

0 votes
2011 Chevrolet Cruze, standard switchblade key with ignition cylinder on column (not push to start). Using EVO-GMT1, with the t-harness. Only wire I have wired to the vehicle for now is the brown wire on the 5 pin connector, and that is spliced into the number 1 pin at the dlc for can bus. I can get programming to step 5. I have hit the program button 5 times, and it will flash 5 times in 4 sequences, and then stay on yellow when its done. When i turn the key it stays yellow and nothing happens. I do not want any other feature this offers, except 3 lock remote start. I have verified switching 0-3v at the brown terminal with key on, and have wired it multiple ways to verify it's not something I did.


I was able to get it to turn red once, turned the key off, removed the key, waited 5 seconds, and turned the key back on and it stayed red.


I am a gm technician and very familiar with these vehicles but I can not get this thing to program.

Try this,

1. connect only the red connector on the evo

2. start the car with the key for 5-10 seconds

3. shut the car down, do not disconnect the red connector

4. attempt to program the module 


If that still does not help, double check the fuse DLIS (discreet logic ignition switch). The car will still start if even if the ignition switch fuse is blown. This fuse may pop if the passkey connector is inserted before the main ignition harness.

tried that, still doing the exact same thing. verified the ignition switch fuse wasnt blown. as far as i can tell there is only one ignition switch fuse, a 2 amp located on the driver side of the dash.


doing the programming this way did not help, nothing new happens.
