HELP - Installing Oracle Mailslot Scanner

I'm installing the Oracle Mailslot scanner, and I'm having problems. The scanner is powered on CONSTANTLY. Once I connect the power to the fuse box bolt/lead, the scanner immediately comes on and the remote is not shutting it off. The battery is brand new in the remote, but the scanner will not turn off. It just keeps glowing.

While installing it, the car is off, I don't know if that affects it. The scanner just will not turn off or respond to the remote. I need help!!

Black wire is going to ground (screwed into the body of the car)
Red is going under the bolt that's attached to the fuse box.

I followed Oracle's video, but the scanner is just constantly on.

Help, please! I appreciate all input!

Had the same issue, remote was no good, even after I changed the battery, you will need to send it back

I'd honestly rather put out a campfire with my face than have to send this scanner to them. I'm so sick of waiting on this stuff, this whole year can be summed up with the statement "This thing that I paid a lot of money for took a month to get here and isn't working".
