Overview

Our take on the FlashLogic FLCAN Module

Installing an alarm system used to involve tapping into a few wires, but modern vehicles use databus systems that carry a wide range of signals through a single cable. Instead of tying up your day with endless wire rerouting and relay installation, FlashLogic's FLCAN module provides an easier alternative to installing a security or keyless entry system in over 38 different vehicle brands and over 3400 vehicles in all.

Installing an alarm system used to involve tapping into a few wires, but modern vehicles use databus systems that carry a wide range of signals through a single cable. Instead of tying up your day with endless wire rerouting and relay installation, FlashLogic's FLCAN module provides an easier alternative to installing a security or keyless entry system in over 38 different vehicle brands and over 3400 vehicles in all.

This module connects to your vehicle's databus interface, enabling communication with any Code Alarm keyless entry or security system. This module also works with many other aftermarket alarm systems.

Important: If you know how to use a multimeter and have experience working with your vehicle's electrical system, you should be able to install this car security equipment. If you're unfamiliar with installing car security equipment, please speak to one of our Advisors before attempting this installation.

Important Note:
This interface can save you lots of time when you install a Code Alarm system in most vehicles. For a limited time, you can save up to $80 on the interface if purchased with your Code Alarm system. Chat or call us at 1-888-955-6000 to see if the interface will work with your vehicle.

Works with Viper

Written by: Clint from Asheville, NC on September 14, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This makes installation of VIPER much easier and links the VIPER to the vehicle for excellent interfacing. I had to connect the starter activation wire, the ignition activation wire, neutral safety wire, two power wires and a ground. Everything else is handled by the truck's data bus and this datalink box. Highly recommended for a good interface between vehicle and VIPER box.

Pros: Provides factory-like features from aftermarket remote start keyless entry VIPER.

Cons:

FlashLogic FLCAN Module

Written by: Robert from Raleigh, NC on February 23, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent interface for the Viper 4105V. The unit is small and easy to mount and connect to the vehicle wiring. It's necessary to integrate with the key sense circuit in a Toyota. You'll need to download the instructions for your specific vehicle from the manufacturer's website. With those and the wiring diagram Crutchfield will send you, you'll have everything you need to install this unit.

Pros: Easy to install and simplifies the installation of a remote start.

Cons: This isn't really a con, but you need to pay close attention to the wiring instructions and installation. Don't get sloppy.

Great Product, EASY INSTALL :)

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have not installed it yet, that will be the day after Christmas since being a Christmas gift for my son. It will save a lot of time and wiring since it plugs right in to the Viper system that I bought and it came programmed from Chrutchfieldfor our 2004 Toyota Camry.

Pros: It will make the installation much quicker and with Chrutchfield's tech support, literature and diagrams that they have already sent me, I have been able to do my homework on it and it should be much, much easier.

Cons: None yet!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I got this for my 2011 Subaru STi with the Viper 5706V alarm, install was easy just make sure you have to correct firmware on this unit for your car. I would recommend this so it can interact with your factory alarm.

Pros: None.

Cons: Easy install, and be able to interact with factor alarm. Made it so I don't need to install any door/tunk pins.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I recently purchased a 04 F-150 XLT Screw. I took the remote start off my old gmc which already had the 4 window automation mods to it. CRUTCHFIED was awesome. Even though I did not buy their remote start they still cross reference it along with my truck and flashed my FLCAN. Easy 5 wire hook up works flawlessly. Thank you crutchfield!!!!!!

Pros: For my truck Installation was as easy as soldering 5 wires. And turning on and off two keys to program. Less then 10 to install and progam the FlashLogic FLCAN Module

Cons: Depending on what car you have it could be very intimidating with ton of wiring. For which you need to visit the flcan web site find your car first find and download the install manuel to find out

Audiovox FLCAN

Written by: Barry S from Harleysville, PA on February 26, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

FLCAN works ad advertised. The FlashLogic website is a very good resource for online help, unlike many manufacturers who hide everything 'for dealers only'' to keep 'regular' people like me from encroaching on their business.

Pros: Data Link cut install time to 1/3 of what it might have been!

Cons: Programming is somewhat cumbersome, perhaps daunting except for those of us who are tenacious enough to stay with it until we get it.

Well worth the purchase price.

I have installed this Module on both my 2008 GMC Envoy and 2004 Siverado. Saves time on install with the remote start and remote keyless entry. installation is extremely easy. Install instructions are online and

Pros: Simplifies installation. Saves time on install.

Cons:

Easy to install

Written by: JoshP from Albuquerque, NM on January 24, 2012

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The FLCAN Module by FlashLogic saves alot of time and headaches by eliminating 60% of the wiring. If I didnt have the FLCAN I would have had to hookup 39 different wires to make everything work for the alarm, but the FLCAN only required 12 to be wired.

Pros: Eliminates alot of the required wiring of the original alarm system.

Cons: Some of the instructions are confusing since one set of instructions are written for all alarms.

Was not needed by installer.

Written by: GAG from Chicago on October 15, 2011

This is the part of the system that will fail over time so it is better to not buy it to start with and install the good old hard-wired way.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The FlashLogic FLCAN Databus Interface Module communicates with your vehicle's Databus to provide plug-in capability between the module, and the Code-Alarm security system for various functions. Typical functions include passive anti-theft bypass (transponder, VATS, Passlock, PK3,etc), factory keyless entry controls, factory alarm arm/disarm, door trigger status, tach signal, dome light supervision, trunk/hatch open. Compatibility and available functions vary depending upon year, make, and model of vehicle.

Note: Before installing, the FlashLogic module will need to be configured for your specific vehicle via web-update. Some splicing into factory wiring will be required, (generally 2-6 connections).

Compatibility: The FLCAN supports many late model vehicles, working with some 30 brands, 361 models, and a total of 1786 vehicles (as of September 2010). At the time of purchase, compatibility with your specific vehicle will be determined, and the FlashLogic module will be programmed with the proper firmware. The vehicle-specific installation guide can be downloaded from the FlashLogic website.

Suggested by Crutchfield tech advisor, because I wanted to ensure my stock security system would still work with the new remote starter, and other reviews all said how easy it made the installation. We'll be trying this ourselves when it arrives. [ Julia  Jan 17, 2016 ]
