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-HON5 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-HON5 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-HON5 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.

To ensure vehicle compatibility, please enter your vehicle information. Your order will be reviewed by our Car Experts group, who will contact you if further information or recommended accessories are needed.

Great Remote Start!

Andrew from Blue Springs, MO on 12/28/2016

2015 Honda Pilot

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This remote start worked great for my 2015 Honda Pilot Touring. I got the Fortin because I didn't want a key FOB in addition to the integrated key. I could not find a locally installed unit that had the "3x Lock" solution. Installation was relatively straightforward. Instructions were ok and pictures on the Fortin website were great but not really geared toward the DIYer. Some important tips. 1. Disconnect the battery. 2. My vehicle has a hood switch standard from the factory. Unfortunately, I figured that out after I installed the one that came with it and took it out. You can check if you have a hood switch by trying to lock the vehicle with the key FOB while the hood is propped open, my car won't lock. 3. Updating the unit. Load the software on the computer, then connect the flashlink updater and the remote start unit. It is important to do this BEFORE the unit is connected to the vehicle or it will not work. 4. Using this kit only required three splices/solder joints. These inline splices and the "scariest" part of the installation. I did not want to accidentally cut the factory wiring. 5. Everything else was plug and play except the ground wire screw. 6. There are quite a few wires that need managed. Once the unit was working, I cut the unneeded wires to a shorter length and taped them off. I used 1/2 inch protective wire wrap from Harbor Freight, wire ties, and electrical tape to make sure everything was neat, secure and out of the way. Works Great!

Product Research


Overview: The Fortin EVO-ONE-HON5 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-HON5 T-Harness for select 2008-15 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.

The module has three on-board LEDs to simplify the programming and diagnostics of the system.

User Interface: The EVO-ONE-HON5 offers three different ways to start the vehicle or control the built-in alarm system:

  • Start the vehicle with the OEM remote by pressing the Lock button 3 times
  • Working with compatible long-range RF remote kits, such as the RF641W or RF642W.
  • Through compatible smartphone modules (such as Compustar Drone and others).

Included Harnesses: The EVO-ONE-HON5 includes the THAR-ONE-HON5 pre-wired T-harness with multiple plugs on each end that connect to the EVO-ONE module and the vehicle's OEM wiring. An activation key to is included for a free vehicle wire color diagram.

2 questions already asked

What's the Distance that this works? Does it only work as far as your factory key works unless you get one of the FR remotes? 2012 Honda Crosstour EX-L W/nav AWD
[ Andrew  Dec 14, 2018 ]
2 answers
Yes I would say it works that distance, about like a normal car fob. Nothing spectacular as far as range., If you have a clean view of your car, I would say 40 yards. If there is something in the way it is hit or miss.
[ CURTIS  Dec 17, 2018 ]
Yes it will only work as far as your factory unit works now. I put an RFK-411 kit on a different car and it works much farther. I start that car regularly from my desk on the 3rd floor in an office building. For the extra $65 I got that kit for it was well worth it, although you have another key fob, I will be putting one on my pilot as well in the future.
[ Grant  Dec 14, 2018 ]
Does this remote start kit work with a. 2009 Acura TL with Technology Package, with keyless entry?
[ Cade  Jun 05, 2018 ]

It sure will work in that car. Just make sure you get the Flash Link Updater to help program it for your vehicle: My Bio:
