Thanks kreg, when programming the evoall with the link manager, I did set it to F3 D2D. Will check everything this weekend!

So I have check all my wiring they all seem to be correct, followed the troubleshooting guides in the fortin website. tested wires yellow/red from the evo when attempting to remote start, I get 12 volts. tested the yellow/blue from the evo as the guide states I should always get 12 volts constant. which I get 12 volts constant. but the guide states the EVO should have a RED LED when attempting to remote start and that the Ground while Running wire should be checked? and that's where I think I have a problem, the EVO only lights up an ORANGE LED.
I'm in the final stretch of my install, I'm so close. I'm taking my time with this install, as I do not want to screw things up.
I am still going to check my ignition output wire from the remote starter if I am getting voltage, and program the Tach wire to vehicle, which I still not have done, just to rule things out.

The GWR signal is generated by the CA5354 R/S and is a (-) signal. You should be able to test this signal by connecting a Digital Multi Meter to this wire connection between the EVO-ALL and the CA5354 :
A8    Dark Blue       GWR           to CA5354 Start Status / Active Output (-)
The DMM set up is as follows :
20 V DC
Red test lead to +12V constant source
Black test lead to EVO-ALL Pin A8 Dark Blue wire
The meter should read 0V. When you initiate a remote start, the DMM should go to +12V indiacting that the CA5354 is outputting a (-) GWR signal going to the EVO-ALL.
Soldering is fun!

Hi kreg, So I have had to put this install on hold for quite some time as life happened. So I wanted to get back to the install and apologize for not replying back. 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan, Remote Start Install - Page 3 -- posted image.
I don't have 0volts, when remote start is initiated. It stays a 12V. the Ignition and the Start output is what I think is not working correctly. I hear the relay clicking and the remote fob beeping, tries to start the vehicle three times, then stops and the the ignition lights and dinging from the dash stays on until I put the key in and turn to ACC and the back to off position.
CA5354 Starter output wire (Purple)>>>>>>EVO-ALL Starter wire (Red Blue)
CA5354 Ignition 1wire (Pink)>>>>>>vehicle Harness side of the Immobilizer connector wire (Red White)
I've noticed that the Ca5354 has 2 Ignition wires 1 and 2 and the Red White wire from the vehicle harness side of the immobilizer connector is coloured like a dark pink with a white strip, and the EVO-ALL wiring diagram shows to as a Red with a white strip. there is no other wire that is coloured RED on the immobilizer harness wiring. I've programmed the tach signal already from the CA5354. I don't know what else to check?
