make sure you have the latest firmware update. Both keys will remain functional when remote started with the latest updates.


When the module does not detect UNLOCK, it will not allow take-over.

I have the latest update recommended per software. I beleive 1 truck is 27.x and other is 28.x but I could be wrong about the number. On both trucks. Still does it after unlocking. I've tried letting it run for longer periods of time(10-15 minutes) then unlocking, putting key in. Then different lengths of time after turning key to run
