Priority driver door unlock and trunk unlock not working on Kia Sportage 2011

0 votes

I have a Kia Sportage LX 2011. 

I have had a remote starter installed recently on my car, for which the Fortin Evo-One module is used.

There are two issues with the installation for which I want to know if there is a way to fix:

1. The driver door proiority unlock is not working. I checked in the following link which confirms my car is supported for this feature. But enabling this feature does not work. Is there any specific way to have it enabled and working? (Currently it unlocks all doors with first time I press 'Unlock' button):

https://fortin.ca/en/features/unlock_drivers_door_only.html

 

2. The Trunk release button unlocks all car doors as well. I expect this button to only unlock/release the trunk, but it opens all doors as well. Is there any workaround for this issue?

 

Thanks.

What is the service number to your module?

You mean this:

800127U000501 ?
service number is 12 digits and will start 002b

 

Option B1 needs to be enabled for driver door priority and will only function if the vehicles oem remote has the function.
For clarification, I have the remote starter installed for my car by a 3rd party installer. He has told me that these features are not supported by my car, but I checked and according to the module specification they should be supported for my car.

I have no idea where to find that service number to post here.

Is the Option B1 something I could enable using my remote, or is it a hardware jumper setting on module?

Thanks.
