Remote start your vehicle — precool in summer, preheat in winter
Choosing the right remote start system and installing it in your vehicle has become a lot simpler and more affordable with this all-in-one Fortin EVO-Series package. The EVO-ONE-HON3 system includes a digital interface module, which bypasses your vehicle's immobilizer circuits so you can start it without a key, and a T-harness that'll connect the module to your specific vehicle.
Vehicle-specific harness simplifies the installation
While not quite plug-and-play, the harness connections cut down installation time considerably, so you do-it-yourselfers out there can save a little money. Fortin includes a code on the package that you use on their website to download and print detailed, illustrated instructions for your installation. In addition, Crutchfield offers free lifetime tech support, via our toll-free telephone number, to help ensure your remote start installation goes smoothly.
Use your factory remote
You start your vehicle by pressing the lock button on your factory key three times. This system lets you start your car from as far away as the key will lock and unlock your doors. Note: This feature works on most vehicles, but in certain select vehicles, the factory key won't work with this remote start system and an RF kit will be required for installation. Please contact us for more details.
Optional RF remotes increase the range
If you want to be able to start your car from inside your home or office, for instance, you can extend your range by simply plugging in one of these RF remote kits to the interface module.
Fortin RF641W 1-way, 4-button RF remote kit, 1500-foot range ($80)
Fortin RF642W 2-way, 4-button RF remote kit, 2500-foot range ($120)
Each RF kit contains two remote controls, an antenna module, and harness. Both kits let you remotely lock and unlock the doors, pop open the trunk, and perform other functions in addition to starting your engine.
Integrates with your factory security system too
The EVO-ONE-HON3 also gives you control over your vehicle's factory security system's basic functions like horn-honking, light-flashing, and door-locking, giving you a little peace of mind when you get into your running car.
The EVO-ONE-HON3 bypass module requires a Fortin FLU-100.2 Flash Link Updater in order to program it to work in your vehicle.
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 remote start system yourself. If not, please consider having your system professionally installed.

Fortin EVO-ONE-HON3 reviews
I was somewhat intimidated to attempt this install on my 2015 Honda CR-V EX-L Navi (push to start), but it was actually a quick and easy, and worked exactly as expected. Instructions available at Fortin.com were complete and easy to follow, though using the Flash-updater and softare required a little discovery learning. Install took two-three hours. Note that Crutchfield staff advised me to buy a separate RF remote kit (rather than just using factory key fob), but it was not required. I was able to start and stop using OEM key fob (3X-lock to start) and will return the Fortin RF remote.
Pros: Good Instructions; Affordable remote start; Mostly plug and play
Cons: Even with THAR, still requires some wire splicing

Overview: The Fortin EVO-ONE-HON3 is a combo package containing the EVO-ONE, a universal, all-in-one high-power remote starter, security system, keyless entry, and data interface module. Included with the EVO-ONE module is the THAR-ONE-HON3 T-Harness for select 2013-17 Honda and Acura vehicles. The EVO-ONE and T-harness are designed to greatly shorten the installation time of the remote start/security system in those vehicles by making many of the connections via direct plug-in harnesses.
Note: This is a complex product, and it is recommended that installation is performed by a professional installer or experienced do-it-yourselfer.
Compatibility: The EVO-ONE-HON3 is currently compatible with some 19 vehicles, including select 2012-17 Honda Accord, Accord Crosstour, Civic, and CR-V, and Acura RLX. Click here to see if your vehicle is compatible.
EVO-ONE Programming: The included EVO-ONE module is ready to load with the required firmware to bypass the vehicle's immobilizer. The required Flash Link Updater (sold separately) must be connected to the EVO-ONE, flashed for your vehicle, and configured for the desired options before installation. It has a self-learning algorithm that automatically detects the vehicle, which greatly shortens the programming time. The module has three on-board LEDs to simplify the programming and diagnostics of the system.
