Vehicle is 2013 Dodge Caravan. I bought this EVO-ALL a year ago and was bummed to see that I also needed to buy a $45 FlashLink in order to make the thing work. I think I had previously programmed the EVO correctly a year ago, but now that I finally bought the FlashLink I thought it would be a good idea to just do the process all over again. I turned on the Remote Start option (seriously... why is this not a default-on option?!) and went through the programming steps for the EVO. FlashLink 002504066374
. I held down the only button and plugged in the black 4-pin connector. The LEDs cycle through and I take my finger off the button when the LED is just Blue. I then start to plug in the other connectors. I have tried every combination of plugging in connectors, but no matter what I do, as soon as I plug in the Red 6-pin connector, the blue LED turns off. I tried troubleshooting and different combinations to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong. Eventually I just pressed on with the instructions. Even though the blue LED was off, when I inserted the key and turned it to ON/RUN, then the blue LED would start flashing. So I thought everything was working despite the LED going off earlier.
This is where is at all falls apart. I turned the key back to OFF and removed the key, but the blue LED just keeps flashing. Additionally, I noticed that the dash lights didn't turn off either. I hit the Lock button on the keyfob, but the blue LED just keeps flashing. I think what is happening is it's waiting for me to turn the key to the OFF position. I think this because whenever the EVO is plugged in, the vehicle does not recognize that I have turned the key to OFF. Seriously, I can start the car with the key, and now it won't turn off. Taking the key out has zero effect. It's somehow like the EVO is blocking/refusing the OFF signal from happening. I think that is what is causing the programming to not finish.
The car will only stop/recognize the key has been removed when I unplug the EVO. Interestingly, at that point, if I plug the EVO back in (without hitting the button) the Yellow LED stays lit. I haven't left it plugged in for more than a minute, so it may turn off at some point. Either way, the 3x lock option will not remote start the car... which is the entire reason I bought this thing a year ago, and then bought this prgrammer now.
What do you recommend I do now?
