+1 vote
2011 ford edge ts133 titan starter, THAR-ford1 harness and evo-all by pass. installed the system and it worked. customer comes back and says that the vehicle will not shut off unless you unplug the data link connector.  tryed new starter module and new evo all. when i programmed the evo all as soon as i turn the key onn the ignition will stay on. open the hood does not make a difference and neither will the brake.  when its running the vehicle is fully operational and drivable with out the key in the ignition. any ideas?

Hi Darcy,

  1. What is the 12 digit service number written on the back of the EVO?
  2. Are there any lights on on the EVO when the vehicle is not wanting to stop?


the hood does not make a difference and neither will the brake.

This happens when the EVO is not detecting ignition on its yellow wire when the vehicle is started. It can also happen if the Can-Hi and Can-Lo are not on the right set of CANs at the OBD-II connector.

If you email me at support@ifar.ca with your number, i`ll do my best to call you on Monday.
