how do I program RF642W fobs to work on Evo-one?

0 votes
i have installed an Evo-one on my 2019 mazda cx5 and the OEM key fob 3x lock start is working fine. I have also included the RF642W when i programmed / flashed the module. I am not sure what to do next to make the rf kit functioning.  i am a bit confused with the quick guide. I dont get the same response from the system (as stated on the guide) when trying to do the steps on programming the fobs. not sure what I am missing.

I have always had more luck using the valet switch,  

1. turn ignition to run

2. press and hold the valet switch (led will flash/horn will honk)   

3.  press the valet switch 5 times  (horn will honk/light will flash with each press)

4. press and release the brake pedal once  (led will flash rapidly)

5 press the - button and then the lock button on each remote ( led will stop flashing to comfirm programing

6. turn ignition off to exit programing

7. test it :)
