Key take over has suddenly stopped working?

+1 vote
I've had fortin remote start for about 8 months, while I was driving it suddenly the dash went flashing. And I stoped turn off the truck and started it again normally. Then when I went to try to remote start it everything worked until the key take over. When i pressed on the brake its just shuts off now.

Normally what I do is remote start x3Lock, then unlock and close door, insert key and turn to run position, and then wait 5 seconds and then press brake pedal and shift and go. But it has suddenly stopped working. Has anyone else had a similar situation.

The parking lights come on, I have all the recommended settings for my truck. I have updated it to its recomended.

Dash flickering is caused by a bad CAN-BUS connection. If you have T-taps or any style plastic connectors on them, redo the conneciton. I would suggest not using any plastic connectors and doing a proper splice connection.

Can bus connections are soldered. Dash doesn't flicker anymore just once it happened.
