About the Fortin EVO-CHR.T4

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-CHR.T4 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. In addition to the Chrysler harness, the module comes pre-programmed for your vehicle right out of the box.

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-CHR.T4 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. In addition to the Chrysler harness, the module comes pre-programmed for your vehicle right out of the box.

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-CHR.T4 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.

IMPORTANT:
Customers who want to configure Run Time or adjust advanced features will need to purchase a Fortin FLU-100.2 Flash Link Updater.

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.

Features

Overview: The Fortin EVO-CHR.T4 is a combo package containing the EVO-ALL, an all-in-one data immobilizer bypass, door lock, alarm, and remote start interface module, along with the THAR-CHR.T4 T-Harness for select Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, and Volkswagen vehicles. The EVO-ALL 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-CHR.T4 is currently compatible with some 119 vehicles, including select 2008-16 Chrysler 300 and Town and Country; 2008-17 Dodge Challenger, Charger, Durango, Grand Caravan, Journey, Magnum, Pickup, and RAM; 2008-13 Jeep Commander and Grand Cherokee; 2010-15 Ram 1500, 2500, 3500, 4500, 5500, and CV; and 2008-14 Volkswagen Routan vehicles. Click here to see if your vehicle is compatible.

User Interface: The EVO-CHR.T4 offers three different ways to start the vehicle or control the built-in alarm system:

  • Using the OEM remote
  • 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-CHR.T4 includes a pre-wired harness with multiple plugs on each end that connect to the EVO-ALL module and the vehicle's OEM wiring. An activation key to WireColor.com is included for a free vehicle wire color diagram.

Q
Does this come preloaded?
[ Jack  Dec 28, 2018 ]

A
I guess the answer would be kind of. You need the flash update to get the latest software package and to adjust options. I've found this to be true on many different applications for the brand.... All in all Fortin seems to be the best systems we've installed in our shop.
[ THOMAS  Jan 03, 2019 ]
A
Mine did. A customer support person called shortly after I ordered to confirm the details of my vehicle and to tell me it would be preloaded for my vehicle.
[ John  Jan 02, 2019 ]
A
It does but you have to get the flash link with it in order to donwload the correct firmware, and or make custom settings. Ex: like disabling hood pin so it can start without one, or priority locks. Without it you cant even view how it is set. I actually had to downgrade the firmware to my preference.
[ vincentia  Jan 02, 2019 ]
A
It says it does however, I also ordered the FLU100.2 Flashlink Updater and I ended up going back into the options a couple of times to adjust some settings. It may work as shipped but I was adding the RF641W extended range remotes so I wanted to make sure I was able to set everything the way I wanted. The programmer was only $35 so I think it's worth getting. Plus if and when I add a remote start to my Jeep I can program that also.
[ Nathan  Jan 02, 2019 ]
