'17 CX-9 GT
Just signed up for this forum to say this worked great on my '17 GT save for one issue I can't figure out... When I remote start, the lift gate won't open from the key fob. It will open manually, but I'd like to be able to use the fob to open the lift gate after remote starting. Anyone else run into/resolve this issue?

Mine does the same, I just checked. I will write to Fortin and see what they say, and update you.
 
had to cancel the appointment to have the remote start installed at the shop because the guy Is I’ll. Sucks, but reschedules for the 29th to see.
has anyone had their fort in device installed at bestbuy?

From Fortin:
Trunk open is not a feature of the module in data: https://fortin.ca/download/68271/evo-one_ig_thr_bi_maz3-cx9-cx3-mx5_pts_2014-2017_1key_a_68271.pdf
Page 1 says it does trunk status which means position of the pin switch but does not mentioned trunk open.

If you wanted the trunk to open remotely, you would need to wire in the aux output from the module, to the vehicles wire that opens the trunk. This would only work from an aftermarket remote.

2019 CX-9 Touring
I bought the three fortin components from amazon, they arrived yesterday. I am a little nervous about installing as I am new to doing this type of work on a car. My car is a 2019 CX-9 T. Just want to make sure that I won't have issues after installation, such as issues with windows or using trunk liftgate remotely? Can anyone verify this for me? Thanks in advance.
 
No issues at all with any of these functions. You will need to reset your windows automatic up down function after the installation. The procedure to reset that function is very simple and mentioned previously in this thread.

All 4 windows need to be reset individually by rolling it down all way and holding it there for a couple of seconds, and rolling it up all the way back up and holding it there for a couple of seconds.

Trunk will not open with remote control keyfob when remotely started, but works when not remotely started.
