I have a Fortin INT-SL+.
HW Ver 2
Firmware Ver 3.01
mfg date 04/2018
Service number 002102061867
I also purchased a Fortin flashlink-lite updater
I have a 2000 Chevy Silverado with an older Chrime Stoppers remote start, and had on omega
IB-GMBP.DB-PAS-23A Passkey override. The omega unit went bad and appears to be discontinued.
I purchaesd the Fortin unit to replace it. I just need the passkey function of the Fortin.
Wired it in configuration 5 without data link.
When I follow the programming instructions, the red light will come on, but not start blinking when the key is switched on. I have checked my wiring. I'm pretty sure I have it right. The red light also does not go out after I start the engine.
I read on this forum that GM trucks can be particularly hard to program and that there is a firmware version 3.06 that resolves the issue.
I bought the Fortin flashlink-lite updater to upgrade my firmware from 3.01 to 3.06
The flashlink-lite updater seems to be working with my laptop correctly. The Flashlink manager 4 shows the flashlink-lite updater as connected.
When I plug in my INT-SL+ the red light comes on for a few seconds and goes out. Flashlink Manager4 always shows the "module status" as disconnected.
I tried holding the INT-SL programming button before plugging the INT-SL into the Flashlink-lite. The red light stays on but the "module status" doesn't change.
I have seen youtube videos that show the Fortin modules connecting almost instantly when plugged into the Flashlink devices, so I think something is wrong. I suspect the INT-SL
I don't want to buy more stuff until I'm sure that I'm going to solve the problem.
I feel that I should troubleshoot the connection between INT-SL+ and Flashlink first, since those are Fortin factory connections. That eleminates my wiring as a potential issue in the flowchart.
Is there a way to tell if the INT-SL+ is bad?
