Evo One programming issues

0 votes
I've followed all instructions. I made all the proper connections but when I try to program the unit and get to the step to start the car I don't get the 10 red flashes. I've triple checked all connections, Upgraded the firmware to the latest then downgraded it back down to 79.37 saved all the suggested options and still can't get it to program.

Am I supposed to hold the program button and let the flashes go until the unit just displays a solid red on it's own or am i supposed to  let go of the program button when it gets to a single red and let go before it repeats the sequence? I've literally spent a couple hours on this today. I'm using guide # 60331.

Just in case anyone reads this the programming instructions in the guide for 2010 Lexus GS 350 is incorrect. What was suggested by the tech support person through email was to connect the other connectors to the Evo One and connect the big power connector last. Once I did this the unit programmed successfully. I spent 3 of my days off over the course of 2 weekends before I got this figured out.

What made it drag out even more was the fact that when I called tech support the guy did not want to offer any help whatsoever. He begrudgingly told me to check the IMI/IMO connection. He said that the tech support was only for profession installers. I get it but I don't get it because They actually have installation guides on their website and these modules are being sold all over the net. Plus I read lots of threads where ppl contacted tech support and got all the help in the world. The good gentlemen that emailed back and forth over the course of a week was very helpful and recommended that I call when I was in the car.
