Cannot program module with ground (A8 dark blue) connected to ground.

0 votes
I can program the module successfully when the dark blue (A8) is NOT connected to ground, but remote start does not work, no lights.

When I connect the dark blue (A8) to ground, the module will not program.

What is the problem?

A8 should not be connected to ground for programming.... what are you trying to do ? What product in what vehicle ? What is the service number on the module.

The service number is: 001A06856795
I'm going by Step #5 in Troubleshooting Guide #34451: 2 Key Programming>> Module programmed correctly=Yes>> Vehicle does not remote start>> Red led illuminates=No>> Verify the ground...
Gude #34451 was my best guess since the module is labeled Evo-All and the package is labeled Evo-Fort1.
Step #5 seems to be saying that the dark blue A8 needs to be grounded in this scenario.

When I press Lock 3X the blue light flashes each time but nothing else happens.
