Introduction

To install the SKSNG205D4 or SKSNG222D4 SmartKey Starter® remote start, a jumper wire and pin installation is required. Please read information below and entire guide before attempting this installation. Mid City Engineering will install the jumper free of charge with purchase of SKSNG205D4 or SKSNG222D4. Please call 312-421-1114 ext. 1 or email sales@midcityengineering.com for more information

DO NOT ATTEMPT THE JUMPER / PIN INSTALLATION IF YOU DO NOT HAVE THE PROPER SOLDERING EQUIPMENT OR EXPERIENCE. A TEMPERATURE CONTROLLED SOLDERING IRON AND BOARD LEVEL SOLDERING EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED . SEE BELOW DOCUMENT FOR EXAMPLES OF THE CORRECT SOLDERING EQUIPMENT TO USE. THE EIS HAS COMPONENTS THAT ARE STATIC SENSITIVE- BE SURE TO USE PROPER GROUNDING TECHNIQUES WHILE WORKING ON THE EIS.

DO NOT OVERHEAT COMPONENTS. RECOMMENDED TEMPERATURE IS 750* DEGREES F

    • Un-latch 40 pin connector and un-plug from EIS

    • There are tabs at the top and bottom of the EIS. Squeeze the tabs towards the center of the EIS and push from the front (where the key would be inserted)

    • Set aside front panel and safely place back panel in your soldering area (this is the board on which the jumper will be installed)

    • The EIS circuit board has static sensitive components. Be sure to use proper grounding practices when working with this board

    • Remove 3X screws from rear or EIS

    • The EIS circuit board has static sensitive components. Be sure to use proper grounding practices when working with this board

    • Using a small flat head tool, gently pry rear of EIS away from interior body to gain access to EIS circuit board

    • The EIS circuit board has static sensitive components. Be sure to use proper grounding practices when working with this board

    • Place provided pin into location shown in video (go to next step for still picture of pin location)

  1. Check pin location to make sure it is in the correct position (see picture)
    • Check pin location to make sure it is in the correct position (see picture)
