My Evo One has yellow and red light on. What does this mean? I can't finish programming because of this.

I am following guide # 80961 for manual transmission.  On page seven step step 5, the yellow light turns on but the red light never turns off.  They both stay on even when I turn the key back to the off position. I have checked all connections twice and can't seem to figure this one out. Also, do I need a seperate harness so that my OEM remote works to control the EVO one?

That means there is a problem with Rx-Tx connections.

also, if the vehicle is equipped with a smart key, the smart key needs to be taken out of the vehicle and you need to be turning the ignition on using the regular back up metal key.

Thanks for the feedback, I will have to check those connections.  I guess I didn't have the smartkey far away from the car as possible. I will go ahead and remove the smartkey battery as well.   After succesful programming and installation, will I still be able to use the smartkey?
yes, smart key will stay functional. immobilizer bypass programming is done via the back up transponder ring and not the smart key itself.
