Start the truck with the key and then try lock or unlock and see if the blue led blinks.


If it still does not blink this would indicate either an issue with programming or the can bus wire connections.

still have no lights on the unit at all. i tried with the explorer running and just key in run position but not started. I have tried changing many setting on the unit itself also. I have double and triple checked the can wiring and it all looks good according to the wiriing daigram. I have tried not changing any settings on the unit also and just going with the standard options you guys have preset on the unit also. Is there something i am missing or should try?
tried changing the can wires again and still nothing blinking when i hit the unlock or lock buttons inside the vehicle or using the remotes.
i see you are now on firmware 71.41 which is to low for that vehicle needs to be 71.44 and up or 4.01 if doing gateway install.
