Question about aftermarket alarm install - 2013 SE


Not sure I'm in the right area so I apologize for that if I'm not. I have a '13 SE and wanted to install the push-button system like on the Titaniums. Well I called my local shop and they said they can't install that after-the-fact. Oh well. I found this neat system from AdvancedKeys which has the Push-Button, keyless entry, and alarm. My only problem was that no shop within a 100-mile radius has ever heard of this, so the one guy that was willing to try installation charged me $360 (very expensive although considering it took them about 10-hours to figure everything out, I guess I got a deal). Now I have a few problems that I can't figure out, the installer can't figure out, and the company says I should buy a CamBus module and MAYBE that will fix it. Can anyone help point me in the right direction?? Maybe help me get to a Ford tech that knows the electrical systems well.

Anywho, here's my question: The keyless system sends a signal to the unlock wire when I approach the car. It can be programmed to send one signal for the driver's door, or be programmed in "double-unlock-pulse" to mimic pressing the unlock button twice. Right now it's in "double" mode, however only my driver's door is unlocking. They also suggested I disable two-stage unlocking on the car itself. I tried this: using my original Ford FOB I now unlock ALL doors by pressing the button once. However when I approach with my keyless entry, it will still ONLY do the driver's door!! Their last resort was to purchase a CamBus data module. Before I try that and spend another fortune on install I was hoping I could maybe find answers here.

Thanks for reading!
