Takeover not happening, Vehicle wouldn't turn off, KIA Niro 2019

0 votes

After correct install and programming, takeover wouldn't happen and the vehicle wasn't able to be turned off until the timeout period had completed. When I pressed on the brake, I could see that the blue light was flashing letting me know there was CAN activity, however the Evo-One wasn't interpreting it correctly? I followed a few posts and found this one. The temporary solution was Connecting the Black [A11] wire to the Green wire on Pin 53 of the 82-Pin Black Connector located in the in the driver's side kick panel (labeled connector "1" on the guide). There are two Green wires connecting to Pin 53, either will work, however there are a bunch of other Green wires in the 82-Pin connector, so make sure you're grabbing the right one. 

Stats: Evo-One, S/N:002B04028689, 76.51 firmware, Niro 2019, HEV Push-to-Start.

I would like to know if there is another solution, possibly a different firmware that I could use instead of messing with the brakes on the vehicle. Also, what is the function of the Black [A11] wire? Is it just a trigger for engine shutdown for the Evo, or is it something else?

Black wire is simply and analog brake input. All remote starters require detection of the brake. this is what shuts off remote starters.

If brake detection is not available on CAN-BUS, simply wire the black wire to the brake signal.

Any chance a new firmware would fix this issue? Or are you guys working on a possible fix?

You can try disconnecting the evo's orange can wires from the vehicle, then re program the evo to the vehicle, then re test.

 

Or connect a wire.
Your snarky comment is not appreciated. It sealed my decision to point my customers away from Fortin products.
The comment I made was meant as informative to help you solve the issue.

 

Best Regards.
