Compustar Wiring Remote Start
I have a CM6200 Compustar 1 way starter system (with Drone application).
New install I am doing myself, and so far I have my remotes programmed, door lock / unlock working.
I am installing in 2008 F350 6.4L Diesel Manual Tranny
Modules are pre-programmed to the settings I desired.
So at this point, I cannot get it to start.
If I do not have my door trigger wire from module (red/white) hooked up, I get error code "Not in reservation mode" - as expected.
When I hook it up, to the violet wire in my driver sill (coming from passenger side), I get error "door open". Also, it seems like it test that part of the logic prior to checking for "reservation mode" because I know the res mode was not set.
Res mode requires setting vehicle in neutral, apply park brake and release main brake pedal (at this point I can hear the module "click". Then I remove my key - ignition still running - then open door, get out, and close door. At this point, the truck should turn off, and lock my doors.
Instead of that, all is well up to after I remove my key - when I open the door, the locks lock, then truck turns off, then locks unlock. (so res mode not satisfied).
Spoke with local dealer of compustar and they say I have to hook up all 4 doors using resistors and diodes using a diagram they provided, OR I could use my dome light.
Of course, I took thle easy way and done the dome light, however, to no gain. Not 100% sure of which wire to tie to, I unscrewed my exterior cab light / brake assembly, and tied it to the 12v black/violet wire and now it results in the same as above with the doors locking/unlocking at wrong sequence.
I am not the most savy guy with wiring, but willing to read and learn. The money I would have paid to installers is most likely less than the total cost of the project, mainly because sometimes it costs $$$ to learn the hard way sometimes, but that's ok because I want to do it myself.
All that being said, HELP!!! Any input is appreciated. I have researched forums left right and center and cannot find this problem with solution I haven't tried.
I am assuming that it is something related to the door trigger, however, I understand ANYTHING is possible.
I am also not 100% sure of my clutch wiring - currently have Black wire from module (Status out - GWR) going to my clutch switch - Could this be a problem??
Thanks!! Appreciate all your time, sorry for the long post, but usually more info the better!
