Installed mine last Friday and it was pretty easy. Hardest part for me was actually cutting factory wiring. Just didn't want to do it. In the end I cut and completed and it is working like a champ!

I've got the Fortin Evo One kit + harness + flash sitting here waiting to be installed. I was sick a couple weekends ago and it was freezing balls outside last weekend, but it's freezing balls this weekend too. Then again, that's why I got this thing, so I need to get out there and just do it.

I've never worked with vehicle wiring, at least not on anything post-1986, and I don't even have a soldering gun with me here in MD. The only part that's making me nervous is the wire cutting. I'm thinking I'm just going to have this done at some local shop, which will no doubt fleece me, but better that than ****ing up and who knows what.

Does anyone have any insight on what all this wiring cutting and soldering entails? I've seen several posts about installs but nothing about this part of the process.

I only cut two wires. One for the ignition, it splits and ties into two separate wires from the Fortin One. And then the tpms sensor that also splits and gets tied into two separate Fortin One wires. I did that only because those were the only two harnesses I couldn't open. Everything else I was able to use a needle and a small screwdriver (with a tip about 3mm or so wide) to open the each harness. There is no reason to solder the wires in my opinion if you twist the wires back together properly. Just don't use cheap tape and you will be fine. 3m Super 33 is great for something like this.

I didn't cut any of the wires either. I just went back and edited my first / original post.

So, had my Evo-One installed today at a local shop. Price was right.

2017 Plat. When started the led/drl's don't come on. I can only assume they didn't tap in for them as I said to solder everything they could, and remove all unnecessary wires. So I assume they didn't tap for it. I will probably look at work one day, or wait till I do the anytime fog mod.

Other thing, which I am more interested in.

When remote started, and take-over is performed. The column doesn't automatically move back.

Is this normal or?

Thanks

Do the lights turn on when you turn the key to on?

Don't have a plat - but when I remote start mine the DRL/taillights/gauge lights turn on. When I put the key in the dash lights turn off.

When I perform take-over, yes they turn on.

I usually screw things like this up - but I Was able to install mine no problem. It really is easy, there's a video on youtube that shows the process. I think there only 7 wires to connect. Hardest part for me was stripping some of the wires down as some of them are very small gauge and my wire stripper couldnt grip them. Bought a soldering iron off amazon for 20 bucks - soldering is easy.

Only thing I wish I would have done differently was instead of cutting the wires - just strip some insulation off an tie in that way. It was fairly easy though, just patience. Had to remove 3 panels total.

Hmm...seems like they should come on - don't have the plat but maybe someone that does can confirm.

Should be easy to verify if they tapped the lights though - 2 screws on steering column to unscrew and it snaps right off. Underneath is a small plug for the lights - green wire should be split and connected to yellow green on one side and yellow red on the other. Brown wire should be tapped into by the pink wire.

Yea, I ventured outside to look, but then said hell no. Its been raining all day, and now it is 25, too cold and humid.

I assume they didn't connect them. Not really a big deal. I am guessing they also didn't connect the auto light wires.

I was able to look under the dash and they left all the wires, appeared to be heat shrunk and taped over. So I know the wires are there so I can always address this later or wait till they aren't slammed and have them check and connect them. They stand behind their work even though I didn't buy the unit from them.



I am more curious about the column function.

Maybe someone with a Plat can chime in on if theirs moves after take-over or not.

I figure it works when the key is detected in the cylinder normally. This might be just how it is as it has to fake it into thinking the chip in the key is there to start.

Been waiting on hold with Fortin for 18 minutes. About to give up and just wait and see if someone here responds.


I will start it later and see if the auto-lights come on or not. That will probably answer as to if they did or didn't connect either lights. Not dark yet.

Ok, so the shop definitely didn't connect the wires.

Auto lights don't function when remotely started either.

I don't really care about the headlights at all. They look crappy anyways.

I will likely connect the DRL feed when I do the fog mod.


I have looked at the diagrams for the unit, and searched for logic diagram for the steering column, but found nothing.

I chatted with the service manager at my dealer and he said they could shut off the column/seat moving when shut off. That will probably be as far as I pursue it. I might try to chat with Fortin again when I have more time to wait on hold just to make sure they know of this issue.

Thanks for finding that.

Well, I tried what it said.

Still doesn't seem to work. Tried it twice, then gave up. Now I can push the memory buttons when I get in and it goes back, which it didn't do the first day... But still didn't do it on it's own.

Thursday the dealer is going to change some stuff in techstream for me, one of the items being to shut off the fat mode seat and column. I don't really care for it moving up and in anyways.
