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.T6 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-CHR.T6 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:

The EVO-CHR.T6 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.

Best remote start

LS from Arlington, TX on 1/17/2017

2015 Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

When I first bought my 2015 RAM 1500, it didn't came with remote start. It didn't bother me since I could add it on later. After research, I found Fortin EVO-ALL-CHR.T6 was the best in terms of installation and technical support from Crutchfield. The T-harness that is included makes the install more plug and play with only three wires that had to be tapped. (Posi-taps worked best) Had it since October 2016 and so far it has worked flawlessly and recently added Rockford Fosgate Autolink make it a real good combination. Any questions e-mail me.

Pros: Best remote start for the DIYer and price.

Cons:

Great Product, Terrible info and instructions from company.

Ryan from Middletown, MD on 12/23/2015

2014 Ram 1500
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I would give it 5 stars but due to unorganized install information and lack of correct info I can't. If you want to purchase this remote start my suggestion would be to call fortin and ask what to purchase and get install info before purchasing.Great product very easy to install and program, once you figure out what your install requires and instructions for your particular install. First when buying this kit you should have all u need to install ( t- taps or splice kits, diodes or resistors.).

Pros: Easy to install and program

Cons: unorganized install info and lack of correct information .

Features

Overview: The Fortin EVO-CHR.T6 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.T6 T-Harness for select Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep 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.

Required Module Flashing After Install: Once the installation of the EVO-ALL module and T-Harness is complete, you must re-flash the module. Simply disconnect the plugs from the module, connect the EVO-ALL to your PC and complete the flash, using the Flash Link Updater 2.0 (FLU-100.2) and Flashlink Manager3 software. This allows Fortin's servers to process the high encryption key data and rewrite it to the module. When the flash is complete, reconnect the T-Harness to the module.

Compatibility: The EVO-CHR.T6 is currently compatible with some 147 vehicles, including select 2011-17 Chrysler 200 and 300; 2011-17 Dodge Challenger, Charger, Dart, Durango, Journey, and RAM; 2014-17 Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee; and 2013-17 RAM 1500, 2500, 3500, and 4500. Click here to see if your vehicle is compatible.

User Interface: The EVO-CHR.T6 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.T6 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.
