Cannot get manual transmission ready mode to activate at all

0 votes
I've set up the Fortin evo one to work with my car, everything works as it should except for the manual transmission ready mode, I have it on 33.2 and whenever I push in the brake, lift the e brake and then let off the brake, I don't get any feedback at all from the car. The car is a 2020 wrx sti with push to start, t harness was used to install

I just did the same car installation today and everything worked fine.

Did you cut the yellow loop wire?

I have not cut the wire, confusing thing is, i installed this perfectly fine about 6 months ago, and is worked perfectly. broke that one, so i just ordered a new one, installed it, got my rf kit and all to work, but im getting no feedback from the manual transmission ready mode. last time i had it set on 33.2, and whenever i pulled the handbrake up and let off the brake the lights would flash twice and i would get out and be done. but now, no feedback whatsoever.

The TEST-ONE will make troubleshooting this vehicle easier, it will show all available inputs that come in through the canbus wires (tach, handbrake, doors, brake, etc...)


Without a test-one, one input at time will need to turned off on the bypass options table and hardwired to test which input is causing the issue.


That being said, since this is a manual transmission vehicle, a professional shop/installer shoucl be consulted to verify functionality of the system to prevent errors that may cause the vehicle to start in gear.
