Every step was complete as follows:

1) plug in T harness

2) while holding down black button connect the black plug on top of module

3) colors go through sequence, release on solid blue

4) plug in white plug of bottom of module

5) turn key to on position

....it does not go through rapid flash after this. Instead it stays solid blue.

you module is not flashed for the vehicle it is being installed in yet.

It needs to be flashed with firmware 4.01

It also needs to options enabled for remote start

Since you will be getting the flasher, might as well get your computer ready.

Create and account on fortin.ca and download the Flash Link Manager software here;, this will allow you to update the module: https://fortin.ca/en/flash-link-manager.html


This vehicle has two different solutions that use two different firmwares. Make sure to flash firmware 4.01 and not 71.XX. You will see a button called "view other firmware", select that then choose 4.01. 

Thank you for the response. What options exactly are needed to be enabled for this?
