The module needs to see 3 lock signals on the canbus in order to remote start, depending on the speed of pressing the oem remote/distance to vehicle, the vehicle may not always receive the lock signals that we need to initiate remote starting.

If you can take the module down temporarily and look at the blue led on the evo module (evo-one I assume) please press lock on the oem remote and verify that the evo module flashes blue 1x for every lock press you do.

 

Thank you,
