2016 Rogue PTS EVO-NIST3 not working

0 votes
I am a consumer- there are no Fortin installers near me, so I'm on my own.  I purchased the EVO-NIST3 and installed it correctly (I think), but it isn't working.  When I have the power off, I plug in the module while pressing the program button as instructed, release at one blue light.  I then press the start button and the module's lights go out.  No lights until I press the start button again- the blue light comes back.  Nothing works.

As I understand it, the module should already be prgrammed, and it's just plug and play, right?  I installed the harness.  Did I miss something?  Thank you.


EDIT:  I just realized I did not install the hood switch and valet switch.  That wire is not going to ground.  Would that cause the blue light to go out instead of flash during programming?  It looks like the whole unit went dead as soon as I pushed the start button.  Thank you.

What is the service number written on the back of the module ?

I don't know.  It is still installed in my wife's car, and I'm at work.  Does it matter?
Yes it is required to know what software is inside the module, this way  we can verify if the software is correct for the vehicle you are doing.

Where did you get the unit? They are usually not preprogrammed ... Unless you got it from a vendor that says it is.
