EVO-One not detected after fully programmed and working.

0 votes


I have the EVO-One w/ THAR-ONE-SUB1 T-Harness and Fortin RF642W remotes on a 2016 Subaru Legacy.

Everything works including remote start but I would like to get back into the module via Flashlkink Manager and change some settings that are not available via the Valet Switch programming method. (Specially, I would like to increase run time of remote start)

The problem is the flashlink manger does not detect the module. The procedure I've been doing is: 

1) Open Manager

2) Connect Flashlink updater via USB, it is recognized and updated to latest version.

3) Turn key to ON, but not running. 

4) Connect Flashlink updater to cable plugged into module. (All other connectors also still connected)

5) Retry detection, open close program etc... but is never detected.

Is there something I need to do with the programming button perhaps? Or need to remove the other connectors? I didn't want to do anything with the programming button fearing it would lose its decyptor settings or other programming.

The module is secured well and I ran the flashlink cable to my fuse box for easy access, but if I have to remove it I will.

You have to remove it, when you connect to the Flashlink, the module must not be connected to the vehicle AT ALL.
