I have a 2007 Chevy Avalanche. i purchased CM7000, Evo-All with T-harness, and a drone Dr-3100.
I installed the evo-all using the T-harness, hoping for a quick and easy installation. After the Evo was installed and programmed, I am able to use the OEM remote to start/stop the vehicle, it works fine. I then attempted to connect the CM7000 alarm/remote start to the Evo-all using "connection A", installation with Data-Link. Here is where I might be missing something. The instructions detail how to add a remote start to the Evo, so i assume it would be the same for the CM7000 Remote/alarm combo.
The instructions state that only the the ignition out wire needs to be connected to the Evo-all From the CM7000, and that some alarm require the 12v Battery wire to be connected directly to the T-harness, so I tried it with the 12v wire both ways.
From the CM7000, I connected the 12V Green ignition wire on the Low current ignition harness (CN3) to the yellow ignition wire (A1) on the Evo. i am using a Compustar 2-way remote (2W704R-SH) with the alarm. it was my understanding that the instalation with Data-link is suppose to greatly reduce the number of wires that you have to connect. I changed option F2 from "Fortin" to "AP-OFA" then the 2-way remote locks and unlocks the doors.
My problem is that when i try to use the 2-way remote to start the vehicle, nothing happens. Its like the alarm is not communicating with the evo or the vehicle. None of the lights on the dash light up. However I am able to Lock and Unlock the using the 2-way with no problems. i took it a step further and attempted to connect the Black status out wire from compustuar's 20-pin harness (CN5) to the Ground while running Dk. Blue wire on the Evo, and also the 12v yellow starter output from the compustar ignition harness, to the red/blue start wire of the Evo. when trying to remote start
Are there any other wires from the CM7000 that i need to connect (or connect to the Evo) in order for the remote start to work? the Door locks are working fine. I was under the impression that no other connections were needed since i would be using the Idatalink installation.
Will any of the the wires (other than the siren, parking light, and hood pin) need to be wired directly to the vehicle in order for this alarm to work or will it all be handled thru the data-link?
Does the horn output work thru the data-link or will it need to be wired directly to the vehicle?
What could my issue be?
Thanks in Advance!
