I didn't use the hood pin. It's not necessary because this is just an immobilizer bypass and not an alarm.

Sorry to keep spamming this post - I’m looking everywhere for answers without much luck. When you guys installed your remote starts, did you receive an included hood pin, and if so did you use it?

I have never been so frustrated in my life. To anyone considering this device - take my advice and don’t do it.
I somewhat agree with this statement. The unit is not very well supported, the documentation is unclear in many places, and if you get stuck you'll have to figure it out on your own or try their support site and hope for the best. I have two outstanding issues:
a) lights stay on after you lock the door using the 3X feature to disable the remote start (or if you allow the shut-off run timer to complete)
b) the seat memory activates when you start the car RAP off or when you open the door RAP off.
I called tech support and they told me i had the door pin wired incorrectly for the lights issue. However, I followed the steps above just like everyone else so I'll need for someone to confirm if possible. If you remote start the car and remote shut off the car, do your lights stay on indefinitely? Also, are your doors unlocked when you do this? For issue b, I know it's possible because the Viper unit was able to do it.
So it seems nothing has been damaged. I was having issues with the module when trying to “learn” the key Immobilizer info... I was not getting the LEDs that I should have been on the canbus module. Step 7 of their instructions says that the blue and red LEDs should be illuminated, then blue should
blink. I was only getting solid blue, no red.
Now my security/Immobilizer light is illuminated. The car runs and drives fine but I cannot start it with my key unless the battery is in it (putting it by the start button does not work). I found others on the Fortin forum with similar issues (also Infiniti) and the issue apparently resolved itself. Guess I’ll have to wait and see.
In the meantime, does anyone know why I couldn’t complete the programming steps?
This entire process has been a nightmare and I wish I had never bought this system.
I can't remember, but I think my light was solid blue as well. I just kept following the steps until completion and then took the unit inside to my computer to use Decryptor. Took the unit back to the car and it worked fine afterwards.
Are you sure you hooked up both connectors at the push button switch? I didn't at first and my security light stayed lit. Might be your issue here as well.
Make sure you're at the latest flash version before starting. Good luck and hopefully everything sorts itself out.
