Your Remote Start Alarm System has many features and available options some of which
are selected at time of installation. For your reference, the list on page 9 of this manual
shows what features and options have been installed. Consult your installing dealer for
options that may have been installed and are not listed.
YOUR “ CODE HOPPING “ TRANSMITTERS:
The transmitters included with your new remote start system use the most advanced and
secure form of radio frequency transmission available on any current automotive remote
system. Some of today’s sophisticated auto thieves use a device known as a code grabber,
which will receive and store the signal from your keychain transmitter, and re-transmit at a
later time to disarm your system.
Your code hopping transmitters will change their signal every time the button is pressed, so
when a thief grabs then re-transmits your signal, the alarm system will not respond.
If your transmitter button is pressed more than fifty times while it is out of range of the
vehicle (children playing with your keys), the transmitter will not operate when you return to
the vehicle, and will need to be re-aligned to the receiver. To do this, simply press the Lock/
Unlock button two times within a one second time period. The system will now respond to
that transmitter each time a button is pressed.
ARMING THE SYSTEM - ACTIVE:
1. Turn the engine off, exit the vehicle, and close all doors, hood and trunk.
2. Press and release the Arm button of your key chain transmitter one time.
The parking lights will flash once, the siren will chirp once, and the dash mounted LED will
begin to flash slowly confirming the system is armed. If you have the optional door lock/
unlock circuit installed, the doors will lock.
NOTE: If the siren/horn sounds 3 chirps, then you have left a door, trunk, or hood lid ajar.
Simply close the opened entry point to provide full protection. If the siren "chirped"
three times, sometime after arming, the exclusive delayed dome light learn circuit has
been programmed and the system detected a open entry point after the learned delay
expired. Again, closing the hood, trunk, or doors will correct the problem and you do
not need to disarm the system to make the correction. If the siren/horn did not sound
when arming, then the chirps have been turned off and you should refer to the
section titled "ELIMINATING THE ARM/DISARM CHIRPS" in this manual.
SILENT ARMING - ACTIVE:
1. Turn the engine off, exit the vehicle, and close all doors, hood and trunk.
2. Press and hold the Arm button of your key chain transmitter for two seconds.
The parking lights will flash once, and the dash mounted LED will begin to flash slowly
confirming the system is armed. The siren will not chirp. If you have the optional door lock/
unlock circuit installed, the doors will lock.
NOTE: If the siren/horn sounds 3 chirps, then you have left a door, trunk, or hood lid ajar.
Simply close the opened entry point to provide full protection. If the siren "chirped"
three times, sometime after arming, the exclusive delayed dome light learn circuit has
been programmed and the system detected a open entry point after the learned delay
expired. Again, closing the hood, trunk, or doors will correct the problem and you do
not need to disarm the system to make the correction. If the siren/horn did not sound
when arming, then the chirps have been turned off and you should refer to the
section titled "ELIMINATING THE ARM/DISARM CHIRPS" in this manual.

ARMING THE SYSTEM - PASSIVE (AUTOMATIC)
If the passive arming feature has been selected:
1. Turn the engine off, exit the vehicle, and close all doors, hood and trunk.
The dash mounted LED will begin to flash rapidly indicating that the 30 second passive
arming timer has begun. If the LED does not begin to flash rapidly, then you have left a door,
hood, or trunk ajar. Closing this entry point will allow the arming cycle will begin. If any entry
point is opened during the 30 second arming cycle, arming will be suspended. When all entry
points are closed, the arming cycle will begin again.
At the end of the 30 seconds, the parking lights will flash once, the siren will chirp once, and
the dash mounted LED will begin to flash slowly confirming the system is armed. If the siren
did not sound when arming, then the chirps have been turned off. Refer to the section on
"Eliminating the Arm/Disarm Chirps" shown later in this manual. Passive door locking is a
selectable feature. If you have the optional door lock/unlock circuit installed, the doors may
or may not lock passively depending upon the setup during installation.
PROTECTION WHILE THE SYSTEM IS ARMED:
Opening any protected entry point, hood, trunk, or doors will cause the alarm to trigger
immediately. The siren will sound and the parking lights will flash for 30 seconds, then stop
and continue to monitor all protected entry points. If the thief left the door opened, the unit
will sound for six 30 second cycles then shut down, isolate the triggered zone and continue
to protect all other zones.
Whenever the system is armed, the dash mounted LED will slowly flash. This serves as a
visual deterrent to a potential thief. This LED is a very low current light emitting diode, and
will not cause the battery to drain even if left unattended for long periods of time.
Whenever the system is triggered, the vehicle's parking lights will flash for the full siren
sounding period. Optional - whenever the system is triggered, the interior courtesy light will
flash for the full siren sounding period.
Whenever the system is armed, the vehicle starter circuit is disabled, and the vehicle will not
start with the ignition key.
Whenever the system is armed, any strong impact to the vehicle will cause the shock
detector to trigger the alarm. Any lesser impact will cause the pre-detect stage of the shock
sensor to emit a few short series of warning tones from the siren.
DISARMING THE SYSTEM
As you approach the vehicle, press and release the Disarm button on the keychain transmitter.
The parking lights will flash two times, the siren will chirp twice, and the dash mounted LED
will turn off.
If you have the optional door lock/unlock circuit installed, the doors will unlock. If you have
the optional entry illumination circuit installed, the interior light will turn on for 30 seconds or
until the ignition key is switched on.
NOTE: If the passive arming mode was selected at time of installation, the dash mounted LED
will start flashing rapidly indicating that the system is rearming. Opening any door will
suspend the automatic arming.
If the parking lights flashed three times, and the siren chirps four times, this indicates that the
alarm system was triggered during your absence. Before turning on the ignition key,
examine the dash mounted LED's flash pattern. The number of flashes identifies the triggered zone. For additional information, refer to INTRUSION WARNING SIGNALS found later
in this manual.
If the siren did not sound upon disarm, then the chirps have been turned off. Refer to the
section titled ELIMINATING THE ARM/DISARM CHIRPS.

NOTE: If the optional 2 step door unlock circuit is installed, when the unlock transmitter button
is activated, the drivers door only will unlock, pressing the unlock button a second
time will cause all doors to unlock. If your transmitter has a sperate lock unlock
buttons, pressing the unlock button anytime after the first unlock command will cause
all the vehicle doors to unlock.
SILENT DISARMING
1. As you approach the vehicle, press and hold the disarm button of your key chain
transmitter for two seconds.
The parking lights will flash twice, and the dash mounted LED will turn off confirming that the
system is disarmed. The siren will not chirp. If you have the optional door lock/unlock circuit
installed, the doors will unlock. If you have the optional entry illumination circuit installed, the
interior light will turn on for 30 seconds or until the ignition key is switched on.
NOTE: If the passive arming mode was selected at time of installation, the dash mounted LED
will start flashing rapidly indicating that the system is rearming. Opening any door will
suspend the automatic arming.
If the parking lights flashed three times, and the siren chirps four times, this indicates that the
alarm system had been triggered in your absence. Before turning on the ignition key, examine
the dash mounted LED's flash pattern. The number of flashes identifies the triggered zone.
For additional information, refer to INTRUSION WARNING SIGNALS found later in this manual.
NOTE: If the optional 2 step door unlock circuit is installed, when the unlock transmitter button
is activated, the drivers door only will unlock, pressing the unlock button a second
time will cause all doors to unlock. If your transmitter has a sperate lock unlock
buttons, pressing the unlock button anytime after the first unlock command will cause
all the vehicle doors to unlock.
WHILE THE SYSTEM IS SOUNDING
If during a triggered state, you wish to shut off the siren without disarming your security
system, simply press and release any transmitter button other than the disarm button. This
action will turn off the siren yet leave the vehicle fully armed and protected. This feature is
particularly useful if you are aware of children playing near your vehicle that may accidently
trigger your security system. In this case you can cancel the siren sounding.
INTRUSION WARNING SIGNAL
This system will inform you if an intrusion attempt has occurred while you were away from
the vehicle. Upon disarm, the siren will chirp 4 times and the parking lights will flash 3 times.
Enter the vehicle and before turning on the ignition switch, observe the LED flash pattern.
If the LED flashes one time...pause, one time...pause etc., then an intrusion attempt was
made by impact or a strong vibration that the shock sensor detected. Check the vehicle for
possible damage to the glass or body panels.
If the LED flashes two times...pause, two times...pause etc., then an intrusion attempt was
made to open the hood, trunk, or by an accessory triggering device. Check the vehicle for
indications of forced entry to these openings.
If the LED flashes three times...pause, three times...pause etc., then an intrusion attempt
was made to the vehicle doors. Check all doors for indications of forced entry.
NOTE: The LED intrusion warning indications are stored in the system's memory and will be
erased when the ignition switch is turned on.
VALET SWITCH:
The valet switch allows you to temporarily bypass all alarm functions, eliminating the need to
hand your transmitter to parking attendants or garage mechanics. When the system is in
valet mode, all alarm functions are bypassed, however the remote panic feature and remote
door locks will remain operational. To use the valet mode, the system must first be disarmed
Page 4
128-6532

either by using your keychain transmitter, or by activating your personalized manual override
code.
1. Enter the vehicle, and turn the ignition key to the on position.
2. Press and hold the valet pushbutton switch until the dash mounted LED turns on solid.
The system will remain in the valet mode.
3. To return to normal operation, press and release the pushbutton switch any time the
ignition is on.
NOTE: Always remember to return the vehicle to the valet off position. This will ensure that
the vehicle remains protected at all times.
MANUALLY OVERRIDING YOUR SYSTEM:
USING THE VALET SWITCH MANUAL OVERRIDE
Your Security System can be disarmed without the use of the keychain transmitter. This is
necessary, since you will need the ability to operate your vehicle if the transmitter is lost or
its battery fails. If your system has been selected for Valet Switch manual override as
indicated on the last page of this manual, to by-pass the alarm system;
1. Open the vehicle door. The alarm will sound.
2. Turn the ignition key to the on position.
3. Within 5 seconds, press and release the valet pushbutton switch.
The alarm system will stop sounding and enter the (by-passed) mode. You can now start
and operate the vehicle normally.
Typically this override mode is used only if the transmitter has become inoperative.
Programming Your Custom Override Code:
Unlike override switches easily found, and defeated, this security system allows the consumer to program a personal override code, offering a higher level of security. To take
advantage of this option, programmable feature # 10 must be selected for the Custom Code
Option. Consult your installation center for programming details. The system comes from the
factory with a pre-programmed override code of 11. To change this default override code,
do the following:
1. Disarm the system by use of the transmitter, or by use of the emergency override
sequence. Turn the ignition switch to the on position.
2. Within 10 seconds, press and release the valet/override switch, 3 times.
3. Within 10 seconds turn the ignition switch off, on, off, on, off, on.
(The siren or horn will beep and the lights will flash one time.)
4. Within 10 seconds, begin to enter your chosen 10ths digit by pressing and releasing the
pushbutton switch from 1up to 9 times.
5. Within 10 seconds of the last entered 10ths digit, turn the ignition switch off then on.
6. Within 10 seconds, begin to enter your chosen units digit by pressing and releasing the
pushbutton switch from 1 up to 9 times.
7. Finish by turning the ignition switch to the off position.
If the new code was accepted, the unit will report back the newly entered code, by flashing
the LED, first indicating the 10ths digit, pause and then the units digit. The unit will report the
new code three times with a one second pause between each code, then the system will
begin arming. If the LED flash pattern reports the previously stored code, the new code was
not entered correctly. Please repeat steps 1 through 7 above considering the following.
NOTE: Acceptable digits 10ths or units are 1 through 9. The unit will not recognize a 0 (Zero),
or no digit entered in any place, units or tenths.
Page 5
128-6532
5 of 10
NOTE: If 15 seconds of inactivity expire, or if the ignition switch is turned off for more then
5 seconds during any of the above steps, the unit will revert back to the last
successfully stored code.
Custom Code Programming Example:
To Change the code from the factory pre-assigned code of 11 to “52” you would do the
following:
1. Disarm the system by use of the transmitter, or by use of the emergency override
sequence.
2. Turn the ignition switch to the on position.
3. Within 10 seconds, press and release the valet/override switch, 3 times.
4. Within 10 seconds turn the ignition switch off, on, off, on, off, on.
(The siren or horn will beep and the lights will flash one time.)
5. Within 10 seconds, begin to press and release the push button switch to set the tenths
digit. (As per the example, press and release 5 times to set the tenths digit to 5)
6. Within 10 seconds of the last press of the pushbutton, turn the ignition switch off then on.
7. Within 10 seconds, begin to press and release the push button switch to set the units digit.
(As per the example, press and release 2 times to set the units digit to 2).
8. Turn the ignition switch to the off position. Immediately observe the LED flash pattern.
You will note the LED flashing five times, pause, and then flash two times, pause. This
pattern will be repeated three times indicating the new code (52) has been accepted and
stored in memory.
NOTE: If after step 7, the LED flashes a code other than what was just entered, this
indicates that the code has not been changed. You will have to repeat steps 1
through 7 above being certain to note the following:
Acceptable digits 10ths or units are 1 through 9. The unit will not recognize a 0 (Zero), or no
digit entered in any place, units or tenths.
NOTE: If 15 seconds of inactivity expire, or if the ignition switch is turned off for more then
5 seconds during any of the above steps, the unit will revert back to the last
successfully stored code.
MANUALLY OVERRIDING YOUR SYSTEM:
USING THE CUSTOM CODE OVERRIDE
Assuming the override code programmed has not been changed, and the default override
code of 11 is in the system's memory.
1) Enter the vehicle and turn the ignition switch to the on position.
NOTE: The siren will sound.
2) Within 5 seconds, press and release the pushbutton switch 1 time.
3) Within 5 seconds, turn the ignition switch off then on.
4) Within 5 seconds, press and release the pushbutton switch 1 time.
5) Turn the ignition switch off then on and start the vehicle.
NOTE: If you have changed the programmed override code then substitute your new code
tenths for step 2 above, and units for step 5 above.
ELIMINATING THE NORMAL ARM/DISARM CHIRPS
You can selectively eliminate the normal arm & disarm chirps by holding the transmitter button
slightly longer when arming or disarming. This will prevent the siren chirps for one arm or
disarm cycle. If you find this inconvenient and wish to eliminate these chirps permanently,
1. Start with the valet switch in the 'off" position.
2. Turn the ignition switch 'on" then 'off".
3. Within 10 seconds of turning off the ignition, move the valet switch 'on", "off', "on", "off",
"on", "off".
Page 6

4. If the chirps were on before you started, the siren will emit 2 short chirps indicating that
the chirps are now off. If the chirps were off before you started, the siren will emit one
short chirp indicating that the chirps are now on.
NOTE: If the vehicle battery is disconnected then reconnected, the unit will return to the
default setting of chirps on. Repeat the above procedure to eliminate the arm/disarm
chirps.
REMOTE PANIC OPERATION
The Lock or Unlock button on your keychain transmitter also functions as a panic switch for
use in emergency situations. To use remote panic,
1. Press and hold the Lock or Unlock button on the keychain transmitter for 3 or more
seconds. The alarm will immediately sound.
2. To stop the alarm, press and hold the Lock or Unlock button on the transmitter again for 3
seconds. If the button is not pressed, the alarm will automatically stop after 30 seconds.
Also if any transmitter button other than the Lock or Unlock button is pressed and
released, the Panic mode will be turned off immediately. The normal function of this
transmitter button will be suspended during the Panic sounding period.
NOTE: While in the Panic mode, pressing and releasing the Lock, or the Unlock buttons will,
if the option is installed, lock and unlock the doors respectively. While in the panic
mode, anytime the unlock button is pressed, the panic feature will continue for the
allotted 30 seconds, however, the security system will be disarmed allowing the
vehicle to start.
SAFETY (Red Handled ) CONTROL SWITCH
The control switch allows you to temporarily disable the remote starting function of your
system. To disable the unit, move the red handled control switch to the off position.
The control switch also allows you to select between 2 hour start up and 4 hour start up
when using the automatic start up timer mode. The factory preset start up time for this mode
is every 4 hours. To select between 2 or 4 hour start up timer:
1. Begin with the control switch in the on position
2. Turn the ignition switch on then off
3. Within 10 seconds, move the control switch off, on, off, on (2 switch cycles) to select a
2 hour start timer. After 10 seconds expire, the parking lights will flash and the siren will
chirp 2 times confirming that the two hour start cycle is set. Or, within 10 seconds move
the control switch off, on, off, on, off, on, off, on (4 switch cycles) to select a 4 hour start
timer. The parking lights will flash and the siren will chirp four times confirming that the
four hour start timer is set.
