  1. I never had that exact issue. The linkr from time to time needs a little time to sync with the app. If I press start too soon the app button will hold a blue color and go back to white. As long as I wait for battery voltage to come up green the remote start from the app goes green and the start activates. I use it just about every day before I leave the office. Matt
  2. Sorry bud. It’s been long days at work. Tells me I need to do some wheelin’. I meant Kris. Nice work in this heat with the fortin. I intend to dive back in once it cools off. Can you start remotely with the phone and simply press your start button then drive away? Matt
  3. I went to fortin’s site and started downloading a number of the Jeep Wrangler working setups. Figured out which one I wanted. I broke the programming port:mad: on try number 2 or 3, and went with the Omega while I got a new fortin. So my fortin is only inline for the serial port to manage the mobile phone start (which I use every day now that its 119*). On the Omega side, I verbosely copied ken’s work. He did all the hard work. The only difference was the On While Running signal I needed an extra SPST relay and I put hard 12v to the tach signal on the easy guard. I may have used a few different resistors to get to the required resistance on the ignition mux. All that stuff was laying around. Matt
  4. Me too - I had a quick second at work and saw your post. Trying to get back to you quickly not be a dickly. Sorry if my reply read that way. Matt
  5. Andy Check the original post carefully. I think this issue was called out as a feature of the OMEGA that the OP, mentions in his instructions. The brake isn’t detected while ignition is off and your easyguard requires a hardwire to the brake light signal line to operate properly. In my rig I was already using the left rear brake light pig tail to tap for some reverse lights so I used the brake light for this application. I believe Ken, OP, went after the brown brake light wire under the driver’s side dash. I had to run a little extra wire in my case, but I can replace the rear tail light and bring it back to pristine. Really your choice. Matt
  6. Nice work - you’re gonna make me tear this apart to get the alarm push notice functionality.
  7. That’s my pleasure. I love tinkering as it appears you do too. I’m actually Sidetracked on 2 other project that may interest you. Headliners but I saw your post. Opted for Mopar and noise barrier (noico9. And Just got a backup camera (I have 35” tires and can’t see well out of the back with my hardtop). Got a decent deal on alpine brake light camera. Will start another thread with install of that. Once that stuff is done I’ll revisit the horn connection. I may pull the wire off my existing output as you suggest. I also want to use the trunk release on the easyguard fob to turn off/on some lights. Just a latching relay but need to find the time. It’s not that bad but not in the heat. First I want the headliner and noise barrier done. Where are you located in the valley? Let’s meet up one of these days and trade some ideas on additional projects.
  8. My install works exactly like that - so once its started by the Crimestopper the take over is completed by pressing the easyguard start button until it turns green. A little more detail - fortin tech explained to me that by default the evo-all is designed to use the brake signal high as the input to tell the unit to deactivate. Not only was this what I anticipated as a behavior it was my indicator that everything was working properly once I connected the two units through to the ignition. The horn function was optional, and I am not one for extra noise - I didn't do the connection, but I suspect that you'd need a relay as the jeep connection to the horn is pull to ground and that signal wire is expecting 12v. Super excited for you. I started mine from inside the saloon at crown king this weekend, and walked out to a nice cool interior. Matt
  9. You took the plunge? I have used it 3 or 4 days already. You are going to be happy.
  10. Same here on wiring. I had a relay harness from another project that I used for the 10s delay relay. Mine came without one. Follow the PIN numbers on the diagram on page one, and mark the harness with a silver sharpie with the pin out. Then soldier exactly as indicated. If you get really lost post a picture of what you have done with the wires clearly laid out at the relay terminals.
  11. I do have one minor thing going on.. but it doesn't bother me. Central auto-locking is unlocking the doors at the 45 minute mark of a drive(when the OMEGA releases to the Jeep's ignition). I think that I need to disable the central auto-locking on the easyguard, but I have had no luck getting the easyguard to do this. Not sure if I need doors physically opened per manual or opened as in unlocked. May try to mess with it a little today. Matt
  12. The setting to unlock all the doors is in the jeep's "personal" settings menu that you can get to from the wheel buttons or the stalk depending on your model year. I used +12v on the tach wire of the easyguard to cure the start and die issue. It is a suggestion on the faq of the easyguard site (ieasyguard.com). Let us know how it works out. Matt
  13. I used this Fob. It was my choice and space for the key was a consideration. I ordered 3 Easyguard units and picked the one with the fob that took the Jeep blank key without a fight. This is the key in the FOB head. Trade off is I have to hold the fob near the ignition to get an emergency start. Matt
  14. It’s game changing isn’t it? My rig is my semi-daily driver so not messing with buttons and carrying all my work gear just opening and going is a nice feature. Quick update on the key front. Followed Advice here and got transponder keys and key blanks. Today I had them cut by a locksmith shop in Tempe. I’m gluing with the intention of drilling and pressing roll pins in once the glue dries.
