i used install guide 60741 with key

and yes it’s a diesel

Can I do s different install?


also after starting with factory remote 3x lock the car starts the remote is useless as it won’t even shut the car off

i reset the module and programmed it again using guide 60741 install

The key take over is working and hitting the brakes with key out is shutting down engine as it should.

Do I need a different program?
Having the OEM remotes functional is something we enable on the car since by factory they do not work while the car is started even with the key.


I would suggest downgrading the firmware lower. 75.35 then reprogram the unit.
