I hooked up a hks turbo timer i done exactly as insturcted but when i turn the car off with the key it kills the car but the timer counts down. I hooked it up in between the key barrel and the connector plug. I used the solid yellow wire, yellow with blue trace and yellow with red trace. Is their a problem in the installation or is the timer itself stuffed??

You mustn't have it hooked up correctly. I has a HKS turbo timer on my ef. You only need to bypass smart lock if you want to use your remote to lock the car while it is running.
