installation points to remember
This security system represents many years of research and development. It is very sophisticated and should only
be installed by experienced security installers. Please do not attempt installation of this product without reading
this guide. The system has been designed to provide the ultimate in security, coupled with limitless convenience
and expansion options.
This product is not intended for consumer installation. It must be installed by an authorized dealer.
Do not disconnect the battery if the vehicle has an anti-theft coded radio. If equipped with an airbag, avoid disconnecting the battery if possible.
IMPORTANT! Many airbag systems will display a diagnostic code through their warning light after
they lose power. Disconnecting the battery requires this code to be erased, a procedure that can
require a trip to the dealer.
Before beginning the installation:
■ Check with the customer on status LED location.
■ Remove the domelight fuse. This prevents accidentally draining the battery.
■ Roll down a window to avoid being locked out of the car.
After the installation:
■ Test all functions. The “Using Your System” section of the Owner’s Guide is very helpful when testing.
■ When testing, don’t forget that this system is equipped with Nuisance Prevention® Circuitry (NPC™), which can
bypass both instant trigger zones, making them appear to not work.

primary harness (H1) wire connection guide
This guide describes in detail the connection of each wire. Also included are possible applications of each wire.
This system was designed with the ultimate in flexibility and security in mind. Many of the wires have more than
one possible function. Please read carefully to ensure a thorough understanding of this unit.
H1/1 (-) domelight supervision output
Connect this wire to the optional domelight supervision relay as shown in the following diagram:
IMPORTANT! This output is only intended to drive a relay. It cannot be connected directly to the
domelight circuit, as the output cannot support the current draw of one or more light bulbs.
H1/2 (-) sensor, zone 4 multiplex
Inputs shorter than 0.8 seconds will trigger the Warn Away response, while inputs longer than 0.8 seconds will
trigger the full alarm sequence and report Zone 4. If installing an optional DEI® dual stage sensor, connect both
the blue and the green wires of the optional sensor to this input.
H1/3 (+) door trigger input, zone 3
IMPORTANT! You MUST test to make sure that the H1/3 wire "sees" all doors!
If the door switch wire you found in the vehicle is positive (+) when the door is open, use the H1/3 (+) door
trigger input. (Positive door triggers are typically used only in Ford vehicles.)

© 2000 Directed Electronics, Inc. Vista, CA
H1/4 (-) instant trigger input (hood pin), zone 1
This input will respond to a negative input with an instant trigger that reports on Zone 1. It is ideal for hood
and trunk pins, but can also be used with 506T Glass Breakage Sensor, as well as other DEI® single stage sensors.
Connect this input to the hood pin wire going through the sleeve of the 515E Siren. (The hood pin wire is labeled
with a BLUE tag on the siren harness.)
The H1/4 wire can be used to shunt sensors during operation by using the auxiliary channels. When any of the
auxiliary channels are transmitted, the H1/4 (-) instant trigger wire monitors for ground. If ground is detected
within 5 seconds of transmission, the sensor and the instant trigger input on the H1/4 wire will be shunted until
5 seconds after ground is removed. This allows the consumer to access the trunk, remote start the vehicle or roll
down the windows without first disarming the alarm. (See the Bypassing the Sensor Inputs section of this guide.)
H1/5 (-) door trigger input, zone 3
If the door switch wire you found in the vehicle is negative (-) when the door is open, connect it to the H1/5
(-) door trigger input.
IMPORTANT! You MUST test to make sure that the H1/5 wire "sees" all doors!
H1/6 siren data input
Connect the H1/6 siren data input wire to the data output of the siren. (The siren’s data output wire is labeled
with a VIOLET tag on the siren harness.) When the 515E Euro-Siren key is turned to the off position, a data
command signal is sent on the H1/6 wire to override the system and disarm the alarm.
IMPORTANT! This wire should only be connected to the siren’s VIOLET tag wire. Do not connect this
wire to anything else.
IMPORTANT! Using the siren key is the ONLY way to disarm the alarm and the back-up siren without
the transmitter.

H1/7 (-) ground-when-armed output
This wire supplies (-) ground as long as the system is armed. This output ceases as soon as the system is
disarmed. This wire can be used to turn on an optional sensor or to ready an optional accessory, such as a
pager module.
H1/8 parking light output #1 and H1/15 parking light output #2
If the vehicle has only one complete parking light wire, connect only one of these parking light outputs directly
to the parking light circuit of the vehicle. This is a dual isolated output relay (both outputs are active at the
same time). An alternative to using the parking light flash is to use either turn signal flash or hazard light flash.
See the following diagram.
H1/9 (-) horn honk output
This wire supplies a (-) 200 mA output that can be used to honk the vehicle horn. This wire outputs pulses when
the alarm is triggered or when Panic Mode is activated. This wire can be programmed to output a single pulse
when locking the doors with the remote and two pulses when unlocking the doors with the remote. If the vehicle
has a (+) horn circuit or a horn circuit that draws more than 200 mA, an optional relay can be used to interface
with the system, as shown in the following diagram.
(+) Positive Horn Circuit
10
© 2000 Directed Electronics, Inc. Vista, CA
(-) Negative Horn Circuit (High Current)
H1/10 normally open interrupt input #2 and H1/12 normally open interrupt output #2
These wires can be used for fuel interrupt or ignition kill. The H1/10 and H/12 wires are interchangeable, so it
does not matter which half of the interrupted wire they are attached to. Both interrupt wires have continuity
when the ignition key is turned on and have no continuity when the key is turned off. If the alarm is armed or
triggered, the interrupted circuit will remain interrupted until the alarm is disarmed with the remote or overridden with the siren key lock.
To connect the H1/10 and H1/12 interrupt wires, first you must locate the ignition or fuel wire in the vehicle.
Cut the ignition or fuel pump wire, and connect the H1/10 wire to one end of the cut wire. Then connect the
H1/12 wire to the other end of the cut ignition or fuel pump wire.
NOTE: If the on-board relay were to fail, the circuit would remain interrupted until the unit is
repaired, bypassed or replaced.
H1/11 (-) siren output
The H1/11 wire connects to the siren input wire of the 515E siren. (The siren input wire is labeled with a GREEN
tag on the siren harness.) The siren duration is programmable for 25 or 50 seconds, if programming the unit with
the Valet switch. If using the Bitwriter for programming, the duration is programmable from 1 to 180 seconds.
Connect the siren’s BLACK tag wire to (-) chassis ground, preferably at the same point you grounded the control
module’s H2/3 ground wire. Connect the siren’s RED tag (+)12V input wire to a good source of constant 12V. Refer
to the H1/6 Siren Data Wire and the H1/4 Hood Pin Input wiring descriptions in the H1 Harness Wire Connection
Guide section of this guide for instructions on wiring the remaining siren wires, or refer to the side panel of the
515E siren’s box for detailed instructions for wiring all of the siren’s connections.
H1/12 normally open interrupt output #2
Refer to the H1/10 wiring description.

11
H1/13 normally open interrupt input #3 and H/14 normally open interrupt output #3
These wires can be used for fuel interrupt or ignition kill. The H1/13 and H1/14 wires are interchangeable, so it
does not matter which half of the interrupted wire they are attached to. Both interrupt wires have continuity
when the ignition key is turned on and have no continuity when the key is turned off. If the alarm is armed or
triggered, the interrupted circuit will remain interrupted until the alarm is disarmed with the remote or overridden with the siren key lock.
To connect the H1/13 and H1/14 interrupt wires, first you must locate the ignition or fuel wire in the vehicle.
Cut the ignition or fuel pump wire, and connect the H1/13 wire to one end of the cut wire. Then connect the
H1/14 wire to the other end of the cut ignition or fuel pump wire.
NOTE: If the on-board relay were to fail, the circuit would remain interrupted until the unit is
repaired, bypassed or replaced.
H1/14 normally open interrupt output #3
Refer to the H1/13 wiring description.
H1/15 parking light output #2
Refer to the H1/8 wiring description.
H1/16 parking light input #1
This wire serves as the input to the dual parking light outputs, wires H1/8 and H1/15. It determines what the
output polarity of the H1/8 and H1/15 wires will be. If the parking light circuit(s) in the vehicle is positive,
connect to a fused 12V source. If the parking light circuit(s) is negative, connect this input to chassis ground.
Be sure to fuse this input with the 10-amp fuse that is supplied with this unit.

secondary harness (H2) wire connection guide
H2/1 (+) ignition input, zone 5
Connect this wire to the (+)12V ignition wire. This wire must show (+)12V with the key in run position and during
cranking. If the security system is armed and the ignition key is turned on, the H2/1 wire will trigger the alarm
and report Zone 5. Take great care that this wire cannot be shorted to the chassis at any point.
H2/2 no function
This wire has no function.
H2/3 (-) chassis ground connection
Remove any paint and connect this wire to bare metal, preferably with a factory bolt rather than your own screw.
(Screws tend to either strip or loosen with time.) We recommend grounding all your components, including the
siren, to the same point in the vehicle.
H2/4 (-) valet switch input
The Valet switch is used to program and enter Valet Mode. Connect the grey wire of the Valet switch to the H2/4
wire and the black wire of the Valet switch to chassis ground.
NOTE: The Valet switch will NOT override the alarm. Also, the alarm must be disarmed in order to
enter Valet Mode.

H2/5 (-) channel 4 output
This wire provides a (-) 200mA output whenever the transmitter button(s) controlling Channel 4 is pressed. This
output can be programmed to provide the following types of outputs (see also the Feature Menus section):
■ Validity: Output that will send a signal as long as the transmission is received.
■ Latched: Output that will send a signal when the Channel 4 button(s) is pressed and will continue until the
same button(s) is pressed again.
■ Latched, reset with ignition: Similar to the latched output, this type of output turns on the first time the
Channel 4 button(s) is pressed and turns off the next time the same button is pressed. This type of output
additionally stops and resets whenever the ignition is turned on and then off.
■ 30-second timed: Output that will send a continuous signal for 30 seconds. This output can be shut off
during the 30-second period by pressing the Channel 4 button again.
■ 60-second timed: Output that will send a continuous signal for 60 seconds. This output can be shut off
during the 60-second period by pressing the Channel 4 button again.
■ 90-second timed: Output that will send a continuous signal for 90 seconds. This output can be shut off
during the 90-second period by pressing the Channel 4 button again.
IMPORTANT! Never use this wire to drive anything but a relay or a low-current input! This transistorized output can only supply 200 mA, and connecting directly to a solenoid, motor, or other
high-current device will cause the module to fail.
H2/6 (+)12V constant power input
Before connecting this wire to (+)12V, add the 15-amp fuse and fuse holder that are supplied with this unit. Be
sure to remove the 15-amp fuse until the installation is complete. Connect this wire to the battery positive terminal or the constant (+)12V supply to the ignition switch.
H2/7 normally closed interrupt input #1 and H2/10 normally closed interrupt output #1
These wires can be used to interrupt the starter wire of the vehicle. They are interchangeable, so it does not
matter which half of the interrupted wire they are attached to. The H2/7 and H2/10 two wires have continuity
all the time. These wires lose continuity if the ignition key is turned on while the alarm is armed or triggered.
To connect the H2/7 and H2/10 interrupt wires, first you must locate the starter wire in the vehicle. Cut the
starter wire, and connect the H2/7 wire to one end of the cut wire. Then connect the H2/10 wire to the other
end of the cut starter wire.
H2/8 (-) channel 2, 200 mA output
When the system receives the code controlling Channel 2 for longer than 1.5 seconds, the H2/8 wire will supply
14

an output as long as the transmission continues. This output can be used to operate a trunk/hatch release or
other relay-driven function.
IMPORTANT! Never use this wire to drive anything but a relay or a low-current input! The transistorized output can only supply 200 mA of current. Connecting directly to a solenoid, motor, or other
high-current device will cause it to fail.
(+) Positive Trunk Release Circuit
H2/9 200 mA (-) channel 3 output
This wire provides a (-) 200 mA output whenever the remote button(s) controlling channel three is pressed. This
output can be programmed to provide the following types of output (see System Features Learn Routine section):
■ Validity: Output that will send a signal as long as the transmission is received.
■ Latched: Output that will send a signal when the Channel 3 button(s) is pressed and will continue until the
same button(s) is pressed again.
■ Latched, reset with ignition: Similar to the latched output, this type of output turns on the first time the
Channel 3 button(s) is pressed and turns off the next time the same button is pressed. This type of output
additionally stops and resets whenever the ignition is turned on and then off.
■ 30-second timed: Output that will send a continuous signal for 30 seconds. This output can be shut off
during the 30-second period by pressing the Channel 3 button again.
■ Second unlock: This output can also be programmed to provide a second unlock pulse when the disarm
button is pressed within 15 seconds after disarming the system. This can be used to unlock the passenger
doors when installing progressive door locks.
IMPORTANT! Never use this wire to drive anything but a relay or a low-current input! The transistorized output can only supply 200 mA of current. Connecting directly to a solenoid, motor, or other
high-current device will cause it to fail.
H2/10 normally closed interrupt output #1

door lock harness (H3) wire connection guide
H3/1 - H3/6 power door locks
The system has door lock relays on-board, and can directly interface with most electric power door lock systems
drawing 15 amps or less. It can also drive after-market actuators directly. (Some vehicles require that an aftermarket actuator be added to the driver’s door to allow system control. See Type D Locks.)
identifying the door lock system
The easiest way to determine which type of door lock system you are working with is to remove the master
locking switch itself, which is usually on the driver’s door or on the center console. Once you have determined
which type of factory door lock circuit you are working with, and the color codes of the switch wires to be used,
you can usually simplify the installation by locating the same wires in the vehicle’s kick panel. If no central
locking switch is found, the installation may require a door lock actuator.
NOTE: Always retest the wires in the kick panel to be sure they work the same as the wires on the switch.
There are eight common types of door lock circuits:
type A: 3-wire (+) pulse controlling factory lock relays
Most GM, some Ford and Chrysler, 1995 and newer Saturns, some new VW, newer BMW.
type B: 3-wire (-) pulse controlling factory lock relays
Most Asian vehicles, early Saturn, some BMW and Porsche.
type C: directly-wired reversing-polarity switches
The switches are wired directly to the motors. This type of system has no factory relays. Most Fords, many GM
two-doors cars and trucks, many Chryslers.
type D: adding one or more after-market actuators
These include slave systems without an actuator in the driver’s door, but with factory actuators in all the other
doors. Type D also includes cars without power locks, which are having actuators added. All Saab before 1994,
most Volvo except 850i, most Subaru, most Isuzu, and many Mazda. Some mid-eighties Nissans, pre-1985
Mercedes-Benz and Audi.
16
© 2000 Directed Electronics, Inc. Vista, CA
type E: electrically activated vacuum systems
The vehicle must have a vacuum actuator in each door. Make sure that locking the doors from the driver's or passenger side using the key activates all the actuators in the vehicle. This requires a slight modification to the door
lock harness. Mercedes-Benz and Audi 1985 and newer.
type F: one-wire system - cut to lock, ground to unlock
This system is found in the late-model Nissan Sentra, some Nissan 240SX, and Nissan 300ZX 1992-up. It is also
found in older Mitsubishi, and some early Mazda MPV’s.
type G: (+) multiplex system
This system is most commonly found in Ford, Mazda, Chrysler and GM vehicles. The door lock switch or door key
cylinder may contain either one or two resistors.
type H: (-) multiplex system
The system is most commonly found in Ford, Mazda, Chrysler and GM vehicles. The door lock switch or door key
cylinder may contain either one or two resistors.
at the switch
■ Three-wire switches will have either a constant ground input or a constant (+)12V input, along with the
pulsed lock and unlock outputs to the factory relays.
■ Many BMW’s and VW’s have no external switch. The switches are inside the actuator, and instead of pulsing,
the proper wires will flip-flop from (+) 12V to (-) ground as the door locks are operated.
■ Direct-wired switches will have a (+) 12V constant input and one or two (-) ground inputs, along with two
output leads going directly to the lock motors.
© 2000 Directed Electronics, Inc. Vista, CA
17
type A: positive-triggered, relay-driven systems
type B: negative-triggered, relay-driven systems
18
© 2000 Directed Electronics, Inc. Vista, CA
type C: reversing polarity
Use these instructions if the power door lock switch has four or five heavy-gauge wires. This type of switch has
two outputs that rest at (-) ground.
IMPORTANT! To interface with Type C systems, you must cut two switch leads. The relays must duplicate the factory door lock switches’ operation. The master switch will have one or two ground inputs,
one (+)12V input, and two switch outputs going directly to the slave switch and through to the
motors. These outputs rest at (-) ground. The lock or unlock wire is switched to (+)12V, while the
other wire is still grounded, thus completing the circuit and powering the motor. This will disconnect the switch from the motor before supplying the motor with (+)12V, avoiding sending (+)12V
directly to (-) ground.
It is critical to identify the proper wires and locate the master switch to interface properly. Locate wires that
show voltage when the switch is moved to the lock or unlock position. Cut one of the suspect wires and check
operation of the locks from both switches. If one switch loses all operation in both directions then you have cut
one of the correct wires and the switch that is entirely dead is the master switch. If both switches still operate
in any way and one or more door motors have stopped responding entirely, you have cut a motor lead. Reconnect
it and continue to test for another wire. Once both wires have been located and the master switch has been identified, cut both wires and interface as shown in the following diagram.
WARNING! If these wires are not connected properly, you will send (+) 12 volts directly to (-)
ground, possibly damaging the control module or the factory switch.
© 2000 Directed Electronics, Inc. Vista, CA
19
type D: adding one or more after-market actuators
Vehicles without factory power door locks require the installation of one actuator per door. This requires mounting the door lock actuator inside the door. Other vehicles may only require one actuator installed in the driver's
door if all door locks are operated when the driver's lock is used.
type E: electrically-activated vacuum
This system is found in Mercedes-Benz and Audi 1985 and newer. The door locks are controlled by an electrically activated vacuum pump. The control wire will show (+) 12V when doors are unlocked and (-) ground when doors are locked.
IMPORTANT! The system must be programmed for 3.5 second door lock pulses. Also, the violet
jumper between the H3/3 #87 lock terminal and the H3/6 #87 unlock terminal must be cut.
20
© 2000 Directed Electronics, Inc. Vista, CA
type F: one-wire system - cut to lock, ground to unlock
This system usually requires a negative pulse to unlock, and cutting the wire to lock the door. (With some vehicles, these are reversed.) It is found in the late-model Nissan Sentra, some Nissan 240SX, and Nissan 300ZX
1992-up. It is also found in some Mazda MPV's.
IMPORTANT! Remember that the violet jumper between the H3/3 #87 lock terminal and the H3/6
#87 unlock terminal must be cut.
© 2000 Directed Electronics, Inc. Vista, CA
21
type G: positive (+) multiplex
This system is most commonly found in Ford, Mazda, Chrysler and GM vehicles. The door lock switch or door key
cylinder may contain either one or two resistors.
SINGLE-RESISTOR TYPE: If one resistor is used in the door lock switch/key cylinder, the wire will pulse (+)12V
in one direction and less than (+)12V when operated in the opposite direction.
TWO-RESISTOR TYPE: If two resistors are used in the factory door lock switch/key cylinder, the switch/key cylinder will read less than (+)12V in both directions.
DETERMINING THE PROPER RESISTOR VALUES: To determine the resistor values, the door lock switch/key cylinder
must be isolated from the factory door lock system. For testing, use a calibrated digital multimeter that is set to ohms.
IMPORTANT! To ensure an accurate resistance reading, do not touch the resistor or leads during testing.
1. Cut the output wire from the door lock switch/key cylinder in half.
2. Test with the meter from the switch side of the cut door lock switch/key cylinder wire to a reliable constant
(+)12V source. Some good constant (+)12V references are the power input source to the door lock switch/key
cylinder, the ignition switch power wire, or the (+) terminal of the battery.
3. Operate the door lock switch/key cylinder in both directions to determine the resistor values. If the multimeter displays zero resistance in one direction, no resistor is needed for that direction.
4. Once the resistor value(s) is determined, refer to the wiring diagram for proper wiring.

type H: negative (-) multiplex
The system is most commonly found in Ford, Mazda, Chrysler and GM vehicles. The door lock switch or door key
cylinder may contain either one or two resistors.
SINGLE-RESISTOR TYPE: If one resistor is used in the door lock switch/key cylinder, the wire will pulse ground
in one direction and resistance to ground when operated in the opposite direction.
TWO-RESISTOR TYPE: If two resistors are used in the factory door lock switch/key cylinder, the door lock
switch/key cylinder will read resistance to ground in both directions.
DETERMINING THE PROPER RESISTOR VALUES: To determine the resistor values, the door lock switch/key cylinder
must be isolated from the factory door lock system. For testing, use a calibrated digital multimeter that is set to ohms.
IMPORTANT! To ensure an accurate resistance reading, do not touch the resistor or leads during testing.
1. Cut the output wire from the door lock switch/key cylinder in half.
2. Test with the meter from the switch side of the cut door lock switch/key cylinder wire to a reliable ground
source. Some good ground references are the ground input source to the door lock switch/key cylinder or the
battery ground.
3. Operate the door lock switch/key cylinder in both directions to determine the resistor values. If the multimeter displays zero resistance in one direction, no resistor is needed for that direction.
4. Once the resistor value(s) is determined, refer to the wiring diagram for proper wiring.

plug-in harnesses
super-bright LED, 2-pin white plug
The super bright LED operates at 2V DC. Make sure the LED wires are not shorted to ground as the LED will be
damaged. Multiple LED’s can be used, but they must be wired in series. The LED fits into a 9/32-inch mounting
hole. Be sure to check for clearance prior to drilling the mounting hole.
programmer interface, 3-pin black plug
The black three pin port is provided for personal computer programming of the unit. When using the DEI Bitwriter
(P/N 998T) or optional PC Interface module (P/N 996T) it is possible to configure any and all of the programmable functions. For more information please refer to the guide packaged with the programmer.
on-board doubleguard shock sensor
There is a Doubleguard® shock sensor inside the control unit. Adjustments are made via the rotary control as indicated above. Since the shock sensor does not work well when mounted firmly to metal, we recommend against
screwing down the control module. We recommend mounting the control module to a large wiring loom. The full
trigger of the on-board shock sensor reports Zone 2. (See Table of Zones section of this guide.)
NOTE: When adjusting the sensor, it must be in the same mounting location that it will be after
the install is completed. Adjusting the sensor and then relocating the module requires readjustment.

bypassing the sensor inputs
There are times when you need to temporarily bypass all sensor inputs to the unit, such as when remote
starting the vehicle. Any time an auxiliary channel output is used, all inputs are bypassed for 5 seconds. During
the 5-second bypass period, ground can be supplied to the H1/4 (-) instant trigger (Zone 1) wire without triggering the unit. When the 5-second bypass period ends, if the unit detects ground on the H1/4 wire, all trigger
inputs except the door trigger input will remain bypassed until 5 seconds after ground is removed from the (-)
instant trigger wire. This can be done using the status output of a 551T remote start unit as shown in the
following diagram:
transmitter/receiver learn routine
The system comes with two transmitters that have been taught to the receiver. The receiver can store up to four
different transmitter codes in memory. Use the following learn routine to add transmitters to the system or to
change button assignments if desired.
Using an optional DEI Bitwriter or PC Interface, the transmitter/receiver learn routine may be locked. If the siren
generates one long chirp when attempting to program the unit, the learn routine is locked and can only be
unlocked by using the Bitwriter or a PC. The learn routine must be unlocked before proceeding with programming.
The Valet/Program switch is used for programming. There is a basic sequence to remember whenever programming this unit: Door, key, choose, hold Valet/Program switch while transmitting, and release.
1.
Open a door. (The H1/3 wire or the H1/5 wire must be connected.)
2.
Key. Turn the ignition on.

3.
Select the receiver channel. Press and release the Valet/Program switch the number of
times necessary to access the desired channel. Once you have selected a channel, press
and HOLD the Valet/Program switch once more. The siren will chirp and the LED will blink
the number of times corresponding to the channel that has been accessed.
NOTE: If adding a remote to the system, a remote button must be taught to the unit in the Channel 1
or Channel 5 position prior to programming other channels, unless using one of the Auto Learn routines.

Channels Five, Six and Seven: Channels Five through Seven are used to assign the arm, disarm and panic functions to separate buttons on the remote control. If the remote is programmed for separate arm, disarm and panic
channels and a button from that remote is entered into Channel One, the remote will be erased from memory,
and the system will only recognize the button that was entered into Channel One.
Channel Ten: If any transmitter button from a known transmitter is programmed to Channel Ten, all transmitters
will be erased from memory. This is useful in cases when one of the customer's transmitters is lost or stolen. This
will erase any lost or stolen transmitters from the system's memory. It can also be used to start from scratch if
the transmitter buttons were programmed incorrectly.
4.
Press the transmitter button. While HOLDING the Valet/Program switch, press the button
from the transmitter that you wish to assign to that channel. The unit will chirp indicating successful programming. It is not possible to teach a transmitter button to the system
more than once.
5.
26
Release. Once the code is learned, the Valet/Program button can be released.
© 2000 Directed Electronics, Inc. Vista, CA
You can advance from one channel to another by releasing the Valet/Program switch and tapping it to advance
channels and then HOLDING it. For example, if you want to program Channel Three after programming Channel One,
release the Valet/Program switch. Press it twice and release it to advance to Channel Three. Then press it once
more and HOLD it. The siren will chirp three times to confirm it is ready to receive the code from the transmitter.
The learn routine will be exited if any of the following occurs:
■ Ignition is turned off.
■ Door is closed.
■ Valet®/Program switch is pressed too many times.
■ More than 15 seconds elapses between steps.
One long chirp indicates that the learn routine has been exited.
transmitter configurations
The transmitters can be programmed with the standard or single button arm/disarm/panic configurations by using
the Auto Learn functions in the Transmitter/Receiver Learn Routine.
standard configuration
A remote that uses the standard configuration operates similarly to many factory keyless entry remotes. A standard configuration transmitter allows arming, disarming, and Panic Mode activation with separate buttons. When
programmed for standard configuration, the transmitter buttons are assigned to the following functions:
.....................................operates ...........................Arm only
...................................operates ...........................Disarm only
..................................operates ...........................Channel 2
...................................operates ...........................Panic
and
and
......................operate............................Channel 3
...................operate ..........................Channel 4
The standard configuration also allows the user to utilize Multi-Level Security Arming (described in the following
section), a feature that cannot be accessed from a single button arm/disarm/panic configuration transmitter.

single button arm/disarm configuration
When programmed for single button arm/disarm/panic configuration, the transmitter buttons are assigned to the
following functions:
.....................................operates ...........................Arm/Disarm/Panic
....................................operates ...........................Channel 2
..................................operates ...........................Channel 3
...................................operates ...........................Channel 4
multi-level security arming
Multi-Level Security Arming is a feature that allows you to select which of the security system's inputs or sensors
will be active and which will be bypassed at the time that the system is armed. (See Table of Zones section in
this guide.) Pressing the arm button (only on a Standard Configuration transmitter) again within five seconds of
arming the security system will activate the Multi-Level Security Arming feature. Each time the arm button is
pressed again, a different security level is selected. The different security levels can be selected as follows:
■ Pressing
one time: The siren chirps once. The system is armed.
■ Pressing
a second time within five seconds: The siren chirps twice followed by a long chirp. Zone Two is
now bypassed.
■ Pressing
a third time within five seconds: The siren chirps three times followed by a long chirp. Zone Four
is now bypassed.
■ Pressing
a fourth time within five seconds: The siren chirps four times followed by a long chirp. Zones
Two and Four are now bypassed.
■ Pressing
a fifth time within five seconds: The siren chirps five times followed by a long chirp. All input
zones, except the ignition, are now bypassed.
NOTE: Multi-Level Security Arming only applies to a single arming cycle. Once the system is disarmed and then rearmed, all the zones will be active again.

system features learn routine
The System Features Learn Routine dictates how the unit operates. Due to the number of features, they have
been broken up into two menus. It is possible to access and change any of the feature settings using the
Valet®/Program switch. However, this process can be greatly simplified by using the optional DEI Bitwriter
(P/N 998T) or Personal Computer Interface (P/N 996T). Any of the settings can be changed and then assigned
to a particular transmitter, up to four, a feature called Owner Recognition. Each time that a particular transmitter is used to disarm the system, the assigned feature settings will be recalled. Owner Recognition is only
possible when programming the unit via the 996T or the 998T DEI Bitwriter.
Using the optional DEI Bitwriter or PC Interface, the System Features Learn Routine may be locked. Make sure the
learn routine is unlocked before programming the features. If the siren generates one long chirp when attempting
to program the unit, the learn routine is locked and must be unlocked using the DEI Bitwriter or PC before proceeding.
1.
Open a door. (The H1/5 negative door trigger input or the H1/3 positive door trigger input
must be connected.)
2.
Turn the ignition on, then back off. (The H2/1 ignition input must be connected.)
3.
Select a menu. (See System Features Menus section of this guide.) Press and HOLD the
Valet/Program switch. After three seconds the siren will chirp once indicating entry to the
Basic Features Menu #1. If this is the menu you wish to access, release the switch and go
on to Step 4. If the Valet/Program switch is not released, you will jump to the Advanced
Features Menu #2 and the siren will chirp twice. Once you have selected the desired menu,
release the Valet/Program switch and then go to Step 4.
4.
Select a feature. Press and release the Valet/Program switch the number of times corresponding to the feature you wish to change. (See System Features Menus section of this
guide.) For example, to access the third feature, press and release the Valet/Program switch
three times. Then press the it once more and HOLD it. While still holding the switch, the
siren will chirp the number of times corresponding to the feature you have accessed.
5.
Program the feature. While still HOLDING the Valet/Program switch, you can toggle the
feature on and off using the remote transmitter. Pressing
(default setting). Pressing
will select the one-chirp
will select the two-chirp setting. (See System Features
Menus section of this guide.)
© 2000 Directed Electronics, Inc. Vista, CA
29
NOTE: Features 2-9 and 2-10 each have more than two possible settings. Pressing the disarm button
on the transmitter will toggle through all the possible settings.
6.
Release the Valet/Program switch. You can either wait 15 seconds to exit the learn
routine, or you can access another feature by following the steps outlined in the following
paragraph.
To access another feature in the same menu:
1. Press and release the Valet/Program switch the number of times necessary to advance from the feature you
just programmed to the next one you want to program.
2. Then press the Valet/Program switch once more and HOLD it.
For example, if you just programmed the third feature in the menu and you would like to program the seventh
feature in the menu, you would press and release the Valet/Program switch four times and then press it once more
and HOLD it. The siren would chirp seven times to confirm access to the seventh feature.
To select another menu:
1. Press and HOLD the Valet/Program switch.
2. After three seconds, the unit will advance to the next menu and the siren will chirp, indicating which menu
has been accessed.
For instance, if you just programmed some features in Menu #1 (Basic Features) and you want to program a
feature in Menu #2, you must press and HOLD the Valet/Program switch. After three seconds, the siren chirps
twice indicating access to Menu #2.
To exit learn routine:
To exit the System Features Learn Routine, do one of the following:
■ Close the open door.
■ Turn the ignition on.
■ No activity for longer than 15 seconds.
■ Press the Valet/Program switch too many times.

feature descriptions
The features of the system are described in this section. If the system is being programmed with a DEI® Bitwriter™
(P/N 998T) or a Personal Computer Interface (P/N 996T) the options available may change. Extra programming
options that are available when programming with the Bitwriter or a PC are indicated by the following icon:
(These options are not available when programming manually with the Valet switch.)
menu #1 - basic feature descriptions
1-1 ACTIVE/PASSIVE ARMING: When active arming is selected, the system will only arm when the transmitter
is used. When set to passive, the system will arm automatically 30 seconds after the last door is closed. To alert
the consumer of passive arming, the siren will chirp 20 seconds after the door is closed. This provides the consumer with an audible warning prior to the system actually arming. At the 30 second mark, the system will arm
but the siren will not chirp.
1-2 CHIRPS ON/OFF: This feature controls the siren chirps that confirm the arming and disarming of the system.
1-3 IGNITION CONTROLLED LOCKING ON/OFF: When turned on, the doors will lock automatically three seconds
after the ignition is turned on. In order for this feature to work, the vehicle door must not be open when the
key is turned on.
1-4 IGNITION CONTROLLED UNLOCKING ON/OFF: When turned on, the doors will unlock automatically when the
ignition is turned off.
1-5 ACTIVE/PASSIVE LOCKING: If passive arming is selected in Feature 1-1, then the system can be programmed
to either lock the doors when passive arming occurs, or only lock the doors when the system is armed via the
transmitter. Active locking means the system will not lock the doors when it passively arms. Passive locking
means that the system will lock the doors when it passively arms.
NOTE: Remember, when passive arming is selected, the unit will chirp 20 seconds after the last door
is closed. The system does not actually arm or lock the doors until 30 seconds after the door has
been closed.
1-6 PANIC ON/OFF: In the on setting, Panic Mode can be activated by pressing the Panic button on the remote.
In the off setting, the Panic Mode is disabled.
1-7 DOOR LOCK PULSE DURATION: Some European vehicles, such as Mercedes-Benz and Audi, require longer lock
and unlock pulses to operate the vacuum pump. Programming this feature with the two-chirp setting will provide
3.5 second pulses and will accommodate the door lock interface in these vehicles. The default setting is 0.8
second door lock pulses.
32
© 2000 Directed Electronics, Inc. Vista, CA
1-8 FORCED PASSIVE ARMING ON/OFF: To use this feature, passive arming must be selected in Feature 1-1. When
turned on, forced passive arming will ensure that the system will passively arm, even if a zone is left open or
invalid. Forced passive arming occurs one hour after the ignition is turned off.
1-9 AUTOMATIC ENGINE DISABLE (AED) ON/OFF: AED is a full-time, passive engine disable that works
independently of the security system. When turned on, the three interrupt wires and the the ground-when-armed
wire will activate 30 seconds after the ignition is turned off. The LED will flash at half its normal rate when the
ignition is turned off to indicate that AED is active and will interrupt the engine in 30 seconds. AED can be disarmed by pressing the disarm button on the transmitter or by using the emergency override procedure (see Owner’s
Guide). AED does not occur in Valet® mode..
1-10 CODE-HOPPING™ ON/OFF: The system uses a mathematical formula to change its code each time the transmitter and receiver communicate. This makes the group of bits or “word” from the transmitter very long. The
longer the word is, the easier it is to block its transmission to the unit. Disabling the Code-Hopping™ feature lets
the receiver ignore the Code-Hopping™ part of the transmitted word. As a result, the unit may have better range
with Code-Hopping™ off.
menu #2 - advanced feature descriptions
2-1 HORN HONK CHIRPS ON/OFF: If programmed on, the horn will provide audible confirmation when arming
and disarming the system. If programmed off, no horn chirps will be heard when arming or disarming, so that
the horn honks will only sound when the system is triggering or in Panic Mode.
2-2 SIREN DURATION 25/50 SECONDS (or 1-180 seconds if programming with a Bitwriter or PC): The
unit can be programmed to sound the siren for 25 or 50 seconds during the triggered sequence. When programming with the PC Programmer or Bitwriter™, the siren can be programmed to sound for any length of time
ranging from 1 to 180 seconds.
NOTE: Some regions have laws regulating how long a security system can sound. Be sure to check
for any such laws in your region when programming this feature.
2-3 NUISANCE PREVENTION® CIRCUITRY (NPC™) ON/OFF: NPC™ stops repeated triggering of the same zone. If
one zone is triggered three times in one hour, that zone is bypassed for one hour, starting from the time of the
third trigger. During that hour, if the system detects a trigger on that zone again, the system resets the one hour
timer. If one hour passes and the zone has not triggered again, the zone is activated and can trigger the system
again. NPC™ only monitors sensor inputs, and does not bypass the door trigger or the ignition trigger at any time.
If NPC™ is turned off, the system will respond to repeated triggers on the sensor inputs and will do so indefinitely.
Some regions have laws regulating how many times a security system can trigger before it is considered a nuisance and the vehicle is towed away.
© 2000 Directed Electronics, Inc. Vista, CA
33
2-4 PROGRESSIVE DOOR TRIGGER ON/OFF: When this feature is on, the system responds to a door trigger input
with a progressive response. When the door is opened with the system armed, the siren will chirp 10 times prior
to the full triggered sequence. The door trigger is still treated as an instant trigger and closing the door quickly
will not prevent a full triggered sequence from occurring. If the progressive door trigger is programmed off, the
full siren output will occur the moment the door is opened.
2-5 DOOR TRIGGER ERROR CHIRP ON/OFF: With the door trigger error chirp programmed off, the system will not
report an invalid zone on arming when the door trigger wire is active. This eliminates the extra chirps that occur
when interfacing with vehicles that have exceptionally long dome light delay circuits.
2-6 IGNITION-CONTROLLED DOMELIGHT SUPERVISION ON/OFF: If turned on, the system will turn on the domelight for 30 seconds when the ignition is turned off. The optional domelight supervision feature must be installed.
2-7 DISARM WITH CHANNEL TWO OFF/ON: If this feature is programmed on, the security system will disarm
whenever Channel 2 is activated with the remote transmitter. This is useful if Channel 2 is used for trunk release.
When the trunk is opened with the remote transmitter, the system will disarm, preventing the security system
from triggering.
2-8 SINGLE/DOUBLE PULSE UNLOCK: Some vehicles require two pulses on a single wire to unlock the doors.
When the double pulse unlock feature is turned on, the BLUE/BLACK H3/5 wire will supply two pulses instead of
a single pulse. This makes it possible to directly interface with double pulse vehicles without any extra parts.
2-9 CHANNEL 3 VALIDITY/LATCHED/LATCHED RESET WITH IGNITION/30 SECOND TIMED/SECOND UNLOCK
OUTPUT: Channel 3 can be programmed for these different output configurations. The unit is set to the default
validity output. To change the configuration, use the disarm button on the transmitter to toggle between the
different configurations.
2-10: CHANNEL 4 VALIDITY/LATCHED/LATCHED RESET WITH IGNITION/30 SECOND TIMED/60 SECOND
TIMED/90 SECOND TIMED: Channel 4 can be programmed for these different output configurations. The unit is
set to the default validity output. To change the configuration, use the disarm button on the transmitter to
toggle between the different configurations.

nuisance prevention circuitry
NPC requires that you change the way you test the system, as NPC will bypass an input zone for 60 minutes. If
the system “sees” the same zone trigger three times AND the triggers are spaced less than an hour apart, the
system will bypass that input zone for 60 minutes. If that zone does not attempt to trigger the system during
the 60-minute bypass period, the zone’s monitoring will begin again at the end of the hour. If it does attempt
to trigger while bypassed, the 60-minute bypass starts over again.
Disarming and rearming the system does not reset NPC. The only way to reset NPC is for the 60 minutes to pass,
without a trigger, or for the ignition to be turned on. This allows the system to be repeatedly triggered, disarmed
and rearmed, and still allow NPC to bypass a faulty zone.
When disarming the system, 5 chirps indicate NPC is activated. The LED will report the zone that has been
bypassed. (See Table of Zones section of this guide.)

rapid resume logic
Rapid Resume Logic ensures that when the security system is powered back up after power has been disconnected,
the system will resume the same state it was in before power was lost. For example, if power is disconnected
during a full trigger sequence, the system will still be in the full trigger sequence when power is reconnected to
the unit. If power is disconnected while the unit is disarmed, it will still be disarmed when power is restored.
troubleshooting
■ Shock sensor doesn’t trigger the alarm.
Has the NPC™ system been triggered? If so, you will hear five chirps when disarming. To check this, turn the ignition key on and off to clear the NPC™ from memory, and then retest the shock sensor. For a detailed description
of NPC™, see Owner’s Guide.
■ Door input does not immediately trigger full alarm. Instead, I hear chirps for the first three seconds.
That’s how the progressive two-stage door input works! This is the instant response feature of this system. Even
if the door is closed immediately, the system provides an instant trigger by chirping, and then progressing to a
constant siren.
■ Closing the door triggers the system, but opening the door does not.
Have you correctly identified the type of door switch system? This often happens when the wrong door input has
been used.
■ Door input does not respond with the progressive trigger, but with immediate full alarm.
Which zone does the LED indicate? If the LED indicates that the impact sensor caused the trigger, the sensor may
be detecting the door opening. Reducing the sensitivity or relocating the sensor can often solve this problem.
If the LED indicates that the door caused the trigger, you may have programmed the progressive door trigger off.
(See Feature 2-4 in the Feature Descriptions section of this guide.)
■ Status LED doesn’t work.
Make sure that it is plugged in. (See Plug-In Harnesses section of this guide.)
