Operating Instructions
n
Remote Control — Each of the pair of remote controls is a miniature
radio transmitter with a typical range of up to 100 feet. Obstructions,
radio interference, cellular transmissions or a weak remote control
battery may reduce the range or interrupt transmission. (If the system
does not immediately respond, release and press the button again. This
works better than holding the button down.) The second remote can be
used by a second driver, or kept as a spare.
n
To Arm The System — The alarm can be programmed for active or
passive arming. Active arming means the alarm can only be armed with
the remote control. Passive arming means the alarm will automatically
arm itself. See the "Programming Table for Alarm Features" on page 9.
n
n
Active Arming. Press remote button #1 for 1-2 seconds. The siren
will chirp twice, the parking lights will flash twice, the doors will
lock, the LED will flash slowly and the starter will be disabled.
n
Passive Arming. Turn the ignition key off, exit the vehicle and close
the doors. When the interior lights turn off, the LED will flash rapidly
for 30 seconds to indicate the system is passive arming. The LED will
then flash slowly to indicate the system is armed and the starter is
disabled. (At any time during passive arming, you may actively arm
the alarm.)
To Disarm the System — Press remote button #1 for 1-2 seconds.
The siren will chirp once, the parking lights will flash once, the doors
will unlock, the interior lights will turn on (if the optional interior light
illumination relay was installed), the LED will turn off and the starter
will be enabled.

n
Interior Light Illumination Capability — When the alarm system
is remotely disarmed, the vehicle's interior light(s) will turn on for 30
seconds or until the ignition key is turned on (requires an optional relay).
n
To Activate an Accessory — Press remote button #2 for 1-2
seconds to activate an optional accessory such as trunk release, remote
engine starter or a remote control garage door opener.
n
Valet Switch — The valet switch is a small hidden toggle switch that
allows you to program many features of the alarm system and prevent
passive arming. In the event of a lost or stolen remote control, you can
also use this switch to bypass (shut off) the alarm system.
BE SURE TO ASK YOUR DEALER TO SHOW YOU WHERE THE VALET
SWITCH IS LOCATED.
If passive arming is turned on, you should put your system in Valet Mode
when your car is being serviced by mechanics, car wash personnel or
driven by valet attendants. While in Valet Mode, all alarm functions are
bypassed to prevent undesired or accidental arming.
n
To Turn on Valet Mode
1. Turn your ignition key to the "ON" position or start the vehicle.
2. Flick the valet switch to the "ON" position.
3. The LED will turn on solid red to indicate the alarm is in Valet
Mode.

Turn off Valet Mode
1. Turn your ignition key to the "ON" position or start the vehicle.
2. Flick the valet switch to the "OFF" position.
3. The LED will turn off to indicate the alarm is no longer in Valet
Mode.
n
User Programmable Passive Door Locking — The system will
not automatically lock the doors when the alarm passively arms to
prevent the keys and remote from accidentally being locked in the
vehicle. If you prefer, you can easily program the alarm to automatically
lock the doors every time the alarm passively arms. See the
"Programming Table for Alarm Features" on page 9.
n
To Activate Remote Panic — Press and hold button #1 for 3-4
seconds. The siren will sound continually and the parking lights will
flash on and off. If the ignition key is off, the doors will unlock. If the
ignition key is on, the doors will lock. To deactivate, press button #1 for
1-2 seconds.
n
Keyless Entry in Valet Mode — While the system is in Valet Mode,
you can still use your remote control to lock and unlock the doors as well
as activate any optional accessory such as trunk release or remote engine
starter.
n
LED Status Indicator — The LED on your vehicle’s dashboard or
center console will inform you of the system status.

n
Previous Intrusion Alert — If the vehicle had been tampered with
and the alarm has been triggered, the siren will chirp 3 times upon
remote disarm instead of the usual 1 chirp.
n
Specific Intrusion Identification — If the alarm had been triggered
in your absence, the siren will chirp 3 times upon remote disarm
(Previous Intrusion Alert). When you enter the vehicle and turn on the
ignition, the LED will flash in cycles to specifically identify which zone
triggered the alarm.

n
Automatic Malfunction Override — In the event of a faulty sensor
or alarm input trigger zone, the alarm, when remotely armed, will alert
you by a series of chirps and light flashes.
n
Instant Remote Control Code Deletion — In the event of a lost
or stolen remote control, all remote controls can be erased from memory
to prevent unauthorized alarm operation. See the "Programming Table
for Remote Controls" on pages 10 and 11.
n
Remote Control Code Learning — The alarm can be programmed
to accept as many as four separate remote controls. See the
"Programming Table for Remote Controls" on pages 10 and 11.
n
Alarm State Memory — If your car’s battery is disconnected and
later reconnected, the system will automatically return to its last state
prior to disconnection, whether it was armed, disarmed or in the valet
mode. So if a mechanic disconnects the battery while the alarm is
disarmed or in the valet mode, he won’t trigger the alarm when he
reconnects the battery. If a thief removes power while the alarm is armed,
and reconnects it, the alarm will instantly sound, the parking lights will
flash and the starter will be disabled.

How to Interpret the Chirps and Parking Light Flashes 
When you press the remote control buttons, the system will respond with
chirps (unless you have the chirp muting feature turned on or the system
is in Valet Mode) and flashes of the parking lights to indicate the system
status. An explanation of these chirp/flash acknowledgments is as
follows:
Number of chirps and flashes
1
Meaning
Disarming of the alarm
2
Arming of the alarm
2 and then 4
3
Armed and there is a sensor malfunction (automatically bypassed)
Disarmed and there was an intrusion attempt
4
Armed and there is a trigger malfunction (automatically bypassed)
