2019 Subaru Outback standard Key installed EVO One with sub1 and sub3 T-harness and RF kit.  Will not remote start when rf kit is plugged in.  Will remote start when it's unplugged but when vehicle is not in operation the hatch keeps unlocking causing vehicle battery drain and ultimately a dead battery overnight.  The serial number for my unit is SN: 002B04 192340

Someone please help.  I spent a good amount of money on this thing for it to not work.

I cannot say I have ever heard of this.

 

First thing I would suggest is to inspect your work, meaning the harness, its routing, all the pins on both sides of each connector. Make sure you havent pinched osmething or bent or pushed a pin.

 

If everything appears to be ok, It almost sounds like your module has a bad ground or has been damaged with the behaviour you are describing. Like its searching for a ground and finding it through the trunk circuit of the vehicle hence why it pops all the time.

 

I would recommend performing a voltage drop check on your ground connection you made to see what you are getting.
