Using Your System
Locking/Arming
Pressing
for one second will lock the doors and activate the
Failsafe Starter Kill. The red LED will begin flashing once per
®
second and the parking lights will flash once. Pressing
again
within 10 seconds of locking/arming the system will not lock the
doors again, but it will flash the parking lights and honk the horn
once, confirming that the system is locked/armed. After 10
seconds, the system can be locked/armed again, as usual.
Locking/arming your system protects your vehicle in the
following ways:
■
The vehicle doors will lock.
■
If the Security Features have been programmed on by the
installer, then turning on the ignition will initiate the Panic
Mode, and the Failsafe® Starter Kill will prevent the vehicle’s
starter from cranking. (See the Programming Options section of
this guide for details on the Security Features.)
NOTE: You must use your transmitter to lock the vehicle in order for the
starter kill to be armed. Manually locking the vehicle does not arm the
system; it will only lock the doors.
Unlocking/Disarming
To unlock the driver’s door (or all vehicles doors, depending on if
your vehicle has driver’s door unlock) and disarm the Failsafe®
6
© 2001 Directed Electronics, Inc.
Starter Kill, press
for one second. The parking lights will flash
twice and the red LED will go out. If pressing
not unlock all vehicle doors, press
the first time did
again within 10 seconds to
unlock the remaining passenger doors and the parking lights will
flash twice. Pressing
a third time within 10 seconds will flash
the parking lights and honk the horn twice, confirming that the
doors are unlocked and the starter kill is disarmed. After 10
seconds, the system can be unlocked/disarmed again, as usual.
NOTE: If the system has been locked/armed with the remote, you must
use the remote to unlock/disarm the system. Manually unlocking the
vehicle does not disarm the starter kill; it will only unlock the doors.
Disarming the Starter Kill Without a Transmitter
If your remote transmitter is lost or damaged, you can manually
disarm your the Failsafe Starter Kill. To disarm the starter kill
without a transmitter, you must have the vehicle's ignition key and
know where the Valet switch is located. Be sure to check with your
installer at the time of installation for the location of the Valet
switch.
To disarm the starter kill, turn
the ignition key on and press
the Valet switch within 15
seconds. The starter kill should
DRW-35
now disarm. If it does not
disarm, you may have waited
too long; turn the ignition off
and repeat the process.

Panic Mode
If you are threatened in or near your vehicle, you can attract
attention by triggering the system with your remote! Just press
and hold
for 1.5 seconds, and you will enter Panic Mode. The
horn will honk and the parking lights will flash for 30 seconds. To
stop Panic Mode at any time, press
on the remote.
NOTE: In order for Panic Mode to function, the vehicle’s horn (or optional
siren) and parking lights must be connected.
Anti-Code Grabbing
The receiver and transmitter use mathematical formulas called
algorithms to change their codes each time the transmitter is used.
This Anti-Code Grabbing technology has been developed to
increase the security of the unit. By following this set code
sequence, the receiver and transmitter stay synchronized, even if
the transmitter is used out of range of the vehicle. If, however, the
transmitter is pressed many times out of range, or the battery is
removed, the transmitter may get temporarily out of sync and fail
to operate the system. To resynchronize the transmitter, simply
press
several times within range of the vehicle. The system will
automatically resynchronize and the transmitter will respond
normally.

High Frequency
Your system transmits and receives at 434 MHz to provide a cleaner
spectrum with less interference and a more stable signal. Enjoy a phenomenal increase in range, even in areas with high radio interference.
Programming Options
Programming options control what your system does during normal
operation, and require few or no additional parts. However, some
options may require additional installation labor. The following is
a list of the program settings, with the factory settings in bold:
■
Ignition-controlled door locks can be turned on or off. When
turned on, the doors will lock three seconds after the ignition is turned on and unlock when the ignition is turned off.
■
There is a ignition-controlled panic sequence that can be
programmed on or off. If this feature is programmed on,
Panic Mode will initiate and the starter kill will arm whenever
the ignition is turned on while the system is locked/armed.
■
Security features can be turned on or off. When programmed
on, turning on the ignition will initiate the Panic Mode, and the
starter kill will prevent the vehicle’s starter from cranking. In
the off setting, the ignition panic sequence and starter kill will
be disabled.

Security & Convenience
Expansions
Here we have listed only some of the many expansion options
available. Please consult your dealer for a complete explanation of
all the options available to you.
Domelight Supervision: If installed, the domelight will illuminate
for 30 seconds each time the system is unlocked/disarmed using
the transmitter. This is useful for seeing inside the vehicle at night
prior to entering it.
Valet® Start System: For the ultimate in convenience, the 551T
Valet® Start System can start your vehicle, monitor engine functions,
and power your climate control system with a push of a button!
Over-rev protection, open-hood lockout, brake-pedal shutoff, and
automatic timer shutoff are all included. (Only for fuel-injected,
automatic-transmission vehicles.)
Power Window Control: Power window control is provided when
adding the 529T or 530T systems. The 529T system will roll up two
windows automatically when the system is locked/armed, or roll
two windows down. The 530T can roll two windows both up and
down. The 530T also provides one touch switch operation.
Power Trunk Release: This expansion option allows you to
operate a factory power release for the vehicle's trunk or hatch. If
the factory release is not power-activated, Directed’s 522T trunkrelease solenoid can often be added.

Glossary of Terms
Control Unit: The “brain” of your system. Usually hidden underneath the dash area of the vehicle. It houses the microprocessor
which monitors your vehicle and controls all of the system
functions.
Failsafe® Starter Kill: Located on-board the control module, this
is an automatic switch controlled by the system which prevents
the vehicle’s starter from cranking whenever the system is armed.
The vehicle is never prevented from cranking when the system is
disarmed or if the starter kill switch fails.
LED: Red light mounted somewhere in the vehicle. It is used to
indicate the status of your system. It is also used to report triggers and faults in the system or sensors.
Transmitter: Hand-held, remote control which operates the
various functions of your system.
Valet® Switch: A small push button switch mounted somewhere
inside the vehicle that is used by the installer for programming the
system. It can also be used to override the starter kill and other
expansion options that have been added to your system. Consult
your dealer for details.
