remote starter installation problem

hi, im trying to install a compustar remote starter in a 96 toyota paseo with manual transmission, the problem im having is it wont go into reservation mode. when i pull up the ebrake, the brain klicks, then i try and remove the key and the car turns off as if the ignition doesnt stay on. the brain is a cm6200, 1st ignition is connected directly to brain, and 2nd ignition is connected to brain through a relay. the tach wire is connected to ignitor and it learned the tach signal.

if i cant get it to work would putting it in automatic mode and not parking the car in gear work?

On my system (different than yours), I have to press the 'LOCK' on the remote after I engage the parking brake. Then I can remove the key, exit, close the door, press 'LOCK' and the system shuts down. Re-read your instructions as you may not be following the sequence correctly.

Is your foot on the brake when you turn off the key?
Do you have the door pin hooked up?

i was doing every thing right, i figured it out thanks to a multimeter, i got two different wiring diagrams, and they both said that my 2nd ignition is a black/red wire but it turns out the 2nd ignition is actually a black/white wire

cm6200 problem

hey guys.. i have different problem.

i install a cm6200 on a 2001 kia sephia 4 door with manual transmission. the remote is a one way and no siren.its just remote starter with optional keyless entry.
the thing is i already hook up everything but its still not working.
here's what i did:

(Primary Wires)
- i connect the 2 red wire(12 volts constant) of the cm6200 brain in the red wire of the steering column.
- i connect the yellow/black and yellow(12 volts starter) on the starter in the steering column. i cut the black/yellow wire(starter wire) and connect the yellow/black wire to the key side and the yellow wire to the starter side.
- i connect the green wire(ignition) to the white/blue wire in the steering column.
-i connect the white wire(accessories) to the green wire in the steering column.
-i connect the green/white(parking light) to the blue/white in the driver kick panel.
-black(ground) to the chassis.

Small Wires:

-tach - i connect this in the yellow wire in the diagnostic connector in driver side strut tower.
-hood pin - somewhere in the hood.
-foot brake - i connect this in the red/black wire in the foot brake switch.
-door trigger - i connect this one in the lt. green/red wire in the driver kick panel.
-ebrake- i connect this in the ebrake handle in violet/white wire.

that's all i connected. the thing is the brain is already active but the tach wont learn. What are the reason(s) for the tach not to learn?

thank you.

if tach is not learning, your source is the problem. Get tach elsewhere go to the coil pack ( light green ) Test the wire with a multimeter don't assume.

hi, thank you for the reply.
i checked all my connection and everything in good. i check my tach connection. the multimeter reading on the kia sephia is 30.4 and i even check my tach connection on my civic to compare the reading and the tach reading is 13.3. i am thinking, the reason why the tach is not learning because the tach output of the car is too high? is it right?

p.s. when i try to program the tach parklight flashes twice then it will flash again three times.(meaning tach is not learning according to the manual).

thank you.

Do me a favor, put your mulitmeter on AC and tell me the reading, if you have the correct wire your voltage will read between 1 - 4 volts. 2 flashes followed by 3 flashes when learning tach means, bad tach signal, find a different wire . Those are the exact words on the website. Your tach output is not too high whatsoever on the car. Every Kia/Hyundai car I've installed remote car starters in has always learned tach successfully. Your tach signal is the problem, be sure when learning tach that the car is not on high idle. Go to a coil pack as I suggested above, then try and see if the brain will take the signal. There is a huge difference in readings on your end of it between the 2 cars thats way too much difference. Make sure you solder your connections if you haven't.

My multimeter is set to 200ac.. Same setting when i test my civic.. I check the wire in the diagnostic connector under the hood and the one light green wire said.. But the tach wire from the brain is still connected on the yellow wire on the diagnostic connector.. I will try to put it in the light green wire then let see what happen.. Thanks

go to a light green wire @ plug right beside where it says DOHC 16V on motor cover.
