The Bluetooth controlled valves are 100% independent of the car's driving mode.
The only time they won't function is when the car is powered down. But they even work in auxiliary power mode.

When the mpe is installed, the actuator that controls the stock exhaust is removed and bypassed. The new actuators (there's two instead of one) is only controlled by the box in the trunk, which only receives power from the car and no signals from the car's brain.

I basically now have twice the driving modes, if you follow my though process, because I can have comfort and comfort+loud, sport and sport+loud and so on.

Next, I would check that the harness that plugs into the top of the box under the trunk floor is firmly in place. Is the wide plug on top all the way in? Under the car, find the actuator on each side, is their plug on firmly?

Also, the flashing for no connection and low battery are similar.. just different intensities. If you have a watch battery around the house, try replacing the battery in the hand held remote maybe?
