RF Kit and Crimestopper Teleconnect at the Same Time?

0 votes

Hello,

I have the Evo-All installed in my 2011 Ford Fusion, an installation that has been in place since January of 2014.  I recently attempted to add the CRIMESTOPPER RFALL641W FM RF Add-on Kit and the Crimestopper Tele-connect smartphonne control.  I am able to program the Evo-All to "see" the RF kit (if the Tele-connect is disconnected), and I am able to program the Evo-All to "see" the Tele-connect as long as the RF antenna is disconnected.  But I am not able to get the unit to see both add-on devices at the same time.  I have flashed the unit as instructed.  If I have both connected at the same time, the RF kit works, but the Tele-connect does not.

Any ideas?  Your assistance is appreciated.

Must instal diode as shown on the white wire. 

It was the diode.  I installed it today and everything now works perfectly.  Thanks!
Where is this full guide availble , cant find anyhere .
I have the same issue with ftx642w and linkr-lt2 - can't make them work simultaneously on Evo-One. Will the diode help there too? Where should I put it?

Update 1: After posting my reply I can see the diagram attached above, not sure why it wasn't visible before. Will try to add the diode where indicated.

Update 2: Adding the diode helped only partially: starting the engine via Ftx642w works fine, but the engine stops after 2-3 seconds when started via linkr-lt2. Any suggestions on how to troubleshoot that?

none of the images in the Q&A responses work for me either, tried in multiple browsers.

EDIT: well, just like Michael said, images began to appear as soon as i posted this comment!

EDIT 2: and then the images are gone again after my edit! i just see something along the lines of this anywhere someone posts an img in a comment: 

3651382862374926558" style="width: 600px; height: 489px;">

sometimes the images will not appear correctly depending from where the comment was initially posted from. 

the Q&A is available on fortin.ca and wirecolor.com.
