2014 Transit Connect short crank, not long enough to start

0 votes
I've just installed an EVO ALL (EVO-FORT1) on my 2014 Transit Connect (US). Everything seems to be working other than the fact that the starter doens't crank long enough to start the vehicle.

which t-harness are you using?
I’m not sure how to identify the harness. It’s got the ignition and impbilizer plugs. It’s got the two different black 4 pin power plugs. The red plug and a white plug .

 

It it seems odd that the system essentially works but the starter isn’t cranking enough times. I don’t believe this can be adjusted with this system.
Anther observation. I didn’t connect the pink wire from the 20 pin to the fuel injector like the wire color website shows for my vehicle. I wonder if an earlier firmware version would work?
I believe that I've figured out my issue. I followed the diagram in the online instructions. In my search for answers I repetedly saw a video on youtube of someone pre-wiring and EVO-ALL. There was a point where the video showed attaching the yellow ignition wire to only the yellow/black wire. My diagram shows three yellows (/black and /purple) together. I took out the yellow/purple and now it works.

I think that this issues could have been solved earlier, however, because I bought this unit from an Ebay seller, Fortin tech support would not help. The Ebay seller stated that they didn't offer tech support. Buyer beware!
