Flashing Red LED After Programming

0 votes
After first stage of programming the EVO-ALL with my Mazda 3 '15, programming with the computer, then following steps 1-12 again (Guide 62681), the EVO flashes RED with no other lights. I tried following all steps again a few times, with the same result. The security light on the car rapidly flashes for a few seconds as well. What should I try next?

Flashing red means unit was already paired with the car. 


Try this...


In the last part of programming, if the blue led turns off and then it alternates through all the colors, programming failed, do not continue. 

If the blue light turns off, then starts to flash blue, programming = successful. Test the starter. Note, key cannot be close to the car.
