Jeep JK CrimeStopper Teleconnect Remote Start

Recommended Posts

Matt already gave a good overview of how to install this setup. just read through his post above and follow all the instructions in the EVO-CHRT5 "THARNESS STAND ALONE INSTALLATION" manual and then the steps in the EVO-ALL section of the current MyCar installation guide.

 

i wanted to show some details and highlight a few differences below.

 

 

basic wiring

 

this was my nearly finished wiring showing how the the EVO-CHRT5 connects with the LINKR-LT2. this whole install is almost all just plugging things in, including to the Jeep - not a single factory wire has to be cut or tapped!

the green wire and relay are optional additions i made, which i'll explain later.

 

here's the one connection you have to actually crimp or solder together (the yellow wires Matt mentioned in the first post).

EVO-ALL flash options

 

you do need a Fortin Flash-Link Updater and a Windows PC to configure the EVO-ALL bypass module. i happened to already have the Flash-Link from adding remote start to Aimee's car a few years ago.

 

i used the latest versions of the Flash-Link Manager (4.39) and EVO-CHRx firmware (74.38). these are the options i selected... note that several of these "A" options turned out to not do anything on a JK though.

these are the really important ones:

 

A1: Door lock control

A3: Bypass

A7: Foot-brake status

A9: Door status

C1: OEM remote monitor

D1: Standalone remote starter

Choose a run-time (D1.4 through D1.9) or it will be 15 minutes if you don't pick.

D2: Unlock before & re-lock after start

H: RF kits

H2: "Fortin 2"

 

 

next up, three little "extras"...

trick #1, easy alarm notification hookup

 

the yellow wire on the harness for the LINKR-LT2 is a horn/siren input. if it sees +12v (constant or pulsing) for 10 seconds or more, then you'll get a push notification on your phone that your alarm is going off.

 

XA8jqx5hM98Ra7kBaf8KjaBrKafsHTzCXKF92B3SL4t5x45fBI0tizYyVDXdK7h9abx0vUIXWoFvxY62bYflQDyaU9tDGrczexXwCMMrDj5Ew-bk873bPVDQt74TlTgluG_LXOX_mh4FJ452gVw2yt3IKzPhgCI6wfzXF1inPYmMVIYPDp-VidLjFMmw0Xf3z0XaWsiR9j1xJaDYsLxGyjXMDFDXWczgyz_DPIWrHnG6dVXsPaCPBBD2ugMb4xTVGQgECq9BeVAT4KNGIjgQrAIjaa3jtiZWC_AU_J09Y2pFtxLjs7uuj6jKTTqrbnzotokZi9OqQa_pFYQNJZKWqWdceIjrOeeUXSwaITPQzh-jmUg0CAlF1gGMt79dFY3dLaAEulGWmNkxpID5rMffEyTKzi6nug6USNj24fG6H5F_prokw9opHvZcukw-VGMqX5LYnRsvt-_m9SzTC8iljGPWpjZxuBsMY_WuHozyk_cbrtLfkDJMPGvjkKDwJmArkoDSSq36Ndvl1Kl_dY2bo0s3mC2R5nn9J_lGydDD1LHgnsbh3rUL_7h68FlWpMwlqKbZekoBqabWmnO44mLpvNyKPMAHOrHt3f0QLKbZvtYds09DYl1Og1IQdRu4q-XfMzrkWctHB_9dwZ-NajWr6pi8S362IXRfzntUUBU43zKW3ODLyKqEutfvMRZoW5pGLAy6S2s-sKJ-S0axvdk0Vk7d9w=s400

 

my JK, and maybe all of them, has very basic factory security system in that if it's been locked with the remote and then a door is opened somehow, the horn will start honking.

 

i couldn't find anywhere inside the cab to easily get a signal when that happens though, so the first option would be to run a wire directly from the positive side of one of the horns through the firewall and connect to the LINKR. if you have an aftermarket alarm system, then it will have an output you can use (if you invert the negative output).

 

then i read about how the EVO-ALL can actually act as an security system itself. it just watches the door status while knowing the current locked/armed status and triggers a siren output if a door is opened when it shouldn't be. all you have to do is select option "G" in the firmware to enable this and it re-configures the green wire output on the 20 pin plug (pin A4) to be a horn/siren negative trigger (see the EVO-ALL "ALARM OPTION" install guide).

 

then any standard relay can be used to swap that negative output to a positive:

i hooked relay pins 86 & 30 to the red positive feed from the LINKR harness, pin 87 to the yellow horn input on the LINKR harness, and then pin 85 to the green horn/siren output from the EVO-ALL 20 pin harness.

 

another cool thing about using the EVO-ALL in alarm mode is that it gives you an input for a hood pin, and another input that can be used for a tilt, glass break, or shock sensor - or even a microwave motion detector, which might be good if you often remove the doors.

trick #2, extended tracking

 

another feature of the MyCar device/service is the ability to check your rig's location. not quite a substitute for a real-time satellite tracker service like Spot Trace for example, but it still helps justify the yearly subscription cost.

 

so far i've found it accurate to about 5 feet, so fairly handy if you forgot exactly where you parked!

 

OWkLP3eXAfB8LKmBqiBK3pHUkfOnITEEJ5rig80E_29hEDjRQUJfotaTYBpu6xWOQk72VGhSsjAgLWTkULCbfouTLTaa2bP48I5T-QXXKY1LYAjNQep0tHR9TJq8MsWms6a2yowkhjmmReHgtEAalxE6JUWjGufgV-8ob9z3wLM6r6ffUSfD5tAEz9cB0zPheL8bJw8MbZOc1nJavWJehSgTd0ynMcjtj40RNxsnkJN9paHRQyQyIumPUpxMXQsDwzT5GHTED9tVScXTYET4e5z4Fx7usVzOldRsV3JHy2Nk59o1ckbsfKfu4RvoNlBQgW6MYVIcTfe7Bt-7jA268-_-iUm0_E0ID-arWeRvS59-S548KKRaju923UUuPQO3n59Rquu7NgAmc6kM0bpLfv92HEJ4YbQkWZw77hr94r2zGrmgYfZ62iCXtAXW9EA9NYeVFw6xrNMKu1Dwgkx1vob-HOpd9DYo5enY_ugoqZRIvO2LL1ughYUGfWSnWZA_mL1JyQFkjW8-2QM5PsauCF6z3M8ncp4Po2prFVInd0s8bxhdG2yYhJFR-SRxTIZlTrATvzu-23UYIzzz6ErMt3obsIqrrqxURInFjQOEaWuHa1twNaBq2UfyqvarckphkZ9qT-MbJpCVsyNVQuft2LOpAW4CZJqN74sL9IBibZYrKpIPP0gO9U7t5oaDpkQriXmg0y-Ll8GM4LTqc9lNEyAvsA=s800

 

i'm more interested in the possibility of tracking Gadget down if she were to be stolen though. with that in mind, i added a battery backup so the LINKR will still work for several days even if the main battery were dead/disconnected or if someone unhooked the T-harness at the ignition.

 

DEI makes a battery backup for alarm systems, but it's only a 0.7 amp-hour lead-acid battery, which wouldn't provide much run time.

 

instead i purchased:

 

- this 3 amp-hour lithium-ion battery pack...

 

- and this automatic failover switch module...

 

the module allows the LINKR to run off the vehicle and simultaneously charges the little battery under normal conditions. but if power is cut then it will use the small pack to run the LINKR while also isolating it from the rig (so it doesn't just back-feed and run down quickly).

 

i spliced this whole setup in at the little secondary connector harness that came with the LINKR.

Nice work - you’re gonna make me tear this apart to get the alarm push notice functionality.

thanks!

 

FYI, i ran across these little guys: Directed 8616 12V 10A Mini Relay...

 

71yu9UDiMlL._SL300_.jpg

 

...prewired and about 1/4th the size of a standard 12v relay and terminals. i ordered a few myself to keep in my supplies for future low current tasks like this.

trick #3, custom photo

 

when you register your device and setup your MyCar account, you select your Year/Make/Model/Color and the app displays a photo of that exact vehicle on its main screen. pretty cool, especially that it has the real colors.

but i didn't want to see a less-cool stock version of Gadget every time i used the app! fortunately, if you're using an Android device then it's easy to change out that image...

 

- there will be a PNG file in (primary storage)/Android/data/app.com.automobility.mycar.control/files/

 

- the exact filename varies based on the vehicle you picked, mine was 10759_cc0640_032_PAU.PNG. interestingly, the "PAU" part is my manufacturer paint code.

 

- if you're using the Carlink or LINKR app instead of MyCar, then the folder after "data" will be different but still have "mycar" in the name.

 

 

so, after a little time in Photoshop with a recent pic of Gadget, my app now looks like this:
