RF642W No LED

0 votes

I just installed an EVO-ONE in my 2016 VW Golf GTI Push-to-Start manual transmission using the T-Harness (THAR-VW1).  It was tedious, but it went well.  The EVO-ONE can remote start the vehicle using the OEM remote (3x lock).

Then, I added the RF642W kit.  Just plugged the black harness from the RF642W into the "data link antenna" port on the EVO-ONE.  I can't get the 642 to do anything.  I tried to program the remote transmitters but I cannot get the LED to come on.  I don't have a valet switch installed, so I'm using the ignition on/off method.  On-Off-On does not set the LED.  I've just setting the ignition "on" off 3 times and starting/stopping the vehicle 3 times (the instructions assume you have a key, not push-to-start).  Nothing.

What should I do?

Turns out the LED is incorrectly indicated in the instrucions regarding programming the remotes.  The LED in question is not on the antenna, but rather the "Remote Starter Programming LED" below the yellow loop on the EVO-ONE.  I was able to follow the remote key programming instructions and got the RF key fobs working.
