easyguard detects the fob and easy guard tells the omega to tell the jeep to start, however...

 

i just tested mine. the way i was describing it working apparently is only when you have the proximity feature enabled. if i disable proximity by starting the rig, pressing lock and unlock on the fob... then afterwards mine will also start without the fob present. i had no idea!

 

you've certainly found a very important tidbit that should have been in the instructions in bright red! that is, if you disable proximity feature, it's not just disabling proximity lock/unlock, but completely removing the need for the fob to be present - i.e. makes your rig so anyone can steal it! crazy!

Doh!!!! 🤦🏻‍♂️ Well I guess I’m glad I’m not the only one! 😊 I wonder if there’s any way to fix that.

to be clear, if you lock it by clicking the lock button on the fob, it can no longer be started (even with the proximity feature disabled).

 

so i had a thought for your unique use-case where you want to leave it unlocked but also NOT startable without the fob... you could remove this connection:

  • Omega module 10P, Green/Black (Lock/Arm -In) === Easyguard 20P, White (Door Locks Relay COM +/- In/Out)

 

and you could also re-enable the proximity feature, then when you walk away with the fob, the easyguard will "lock" - making it no longer startable, but yet it won't actually lock the doors because of removing that connection. or if you leave proximity enabled, then you just need to remember to press the lock button on the fob when you leave the rig (again just to disable the start button, not to actually lock the doors).

 

the downside of this idea is that you could never lock the doors for real with the easyguard fob, you'd have to lock them with the key manually (or of course the factory fob would still work).

Hello everyone. I am new to the site.

 

I am not new to projects similar to the one in this thread. I posted my confusion here and after about the third or fourth time of reading the provided manuals, I think I may be able to start my installation. Wish me luck!

Cool, I’ll give that a try!

Going through this install and have a couple of questions. First, my ec002 does not have a GWR 3p plug but a small shock sensor. I am unsure how to connect the unit correctly given that I am working without a GWR. 

 

Second, the fortin version of this install (outlined on page 12 of this thread) also talks about wires from 4 pin white and black connectors being connected to the two red wires from the 6p on the EasyGuard. Maybe I have a different (or updated) fortin module than what is originally mentioned? Again, the fortin unit I have does not have these connectors. Maybe I am doing something wrong or just need a small bit of guidance. Any information would be helpful. Install is with an EVO-ALL from fortin and an Easyguard EC002F02-NS.

 

Thanks.

You can create ground while running by using a simple horn relay.  Set it to trigger on ignition. The pass through pin will tie to ground and the output side will be ground while running (gwr)

Anyone try this with the new omegalink software flash tool? I'm having issues because you cant just pick "other" and "hardwired" with the new software.
