Cannot unlock the door once the vehicle has been remote started via RF remote

0 votes
I have a 2016 Subaru WRX with an EVO One remote start(standard key ignition with T Harness) and an RF642W kit installed.
I am able to lock/unlock all doors with the RF remote before remote starting the vehicle.  
Once I remote start the vehicle I am unable to unlock/lock/open the trunk using the RF remote.  
Only way I can unlock the doors is to use the OEM remote(The OEM remote works before and after I remote start the car).  But then once the door is opened, the engine shuts off.
Any suggestions how I can use the RF remote to unlock the door(s) while the vehicle is running and enter the vehicle to use the key takeover?

If the RF kit does not work when the engine is remote started you would want to verify your door lock data connection.


These are the wires respondible for doorlocks from the RF kit when remote started. Ensure you have the Lt.Blue on the correct side of the cut shown in the guide: https://fortin.ca/download/57211/evo-one_ig_tha_bi_sub1-forester-wrx-sti-2015_key_b_57211.pdf
