Warning! Safety first
The following safety warnings must be observed at all times:
• Due to the complexity of this system, installation of this product must only be
performed by an authorized Directed Electronics dealer.
• When properly installed, this system can start the vehicle via a command
signal from the remote control. Therefore, never operate the system in an
area that does not have adequate ventilation.
The following precautions are the sole responsibility of the user; however, authorized Directed Electronics dealers should:
• Never use a test light or logic probe when installing this
unit. Always use a multimeter.
• Never operate the system in an enclosed or partially enclosed area without
ventilation (such as a garage).
• When parking in an enclosed or partially enclosed area or when having
the vehicle serviced, the remote start system must be disabled using the
installed toggle switch. It is the user’s sole responsibility to properly handle
and keep out of reach from children all remote controls to assure that the
system does not unintentionally remote start the vehicle.
USER MUST INSTALL A CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR
IN OR ABOUT THE LIVING AREA ADJACENT TO THE VEHICLE. ALL DOORS LEADING FROM ADJACENT LIVING AREAS TO THE ENCLOSED OR PARTIALLY ENCLOSED VEHICLE
STORAGE AREA MUST REMAIN CLOSED AT ALL TIMES.
Use of this product in a manner contrary to its intended mode of operation may
result in property damage, personal injury, or death. Except when performing
the Safety Check outlined in this installation guide, (1) Never remotely start the
vehicle with the vehicle in gear, and (2) Never remotely start the vehicle with the
keys in the ignition. The user will be responsible for having the neutral safety feature of the vehicle periodically checked, wherein the vehicle must not remotely
start while the car is in gear. This testing should be performed by an authorized
Directed Electronics dealer in accordance with the Safety Check outlined in
this product installation guide. If the vehicle starts in gear, cease remote start
operation immediately and consult with the user to fix the problem immediately.

After the remote start module has been installed, test the remote start module
in accordance with the Safety Check outlined in this installation guide. If the
vehicle starts when performing the Neutral Safety Shutdown Circuit test, the
remote start unit has not been properly installed. The remote start module must
be removed or properly reinstalled so that the vehicle does not start in gear. All
installations must be performed by an authorized Directed Electronics dealer.
OPERATION OF THE REMOTE START MODULE IF THE VEHICLE STARTS IN
GEAR IS CONTRARY TO ITS INTENDED MODE OF OPERATION. OPERATING THE REMOTE START SYSTEM UNDER THESE CONDITIONS MAY RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE OR PERSONAL INJURY. IMMEDIATELY CEASE

Installation points to remember
This product is designed for fuel-injected, automatic transmission vehicles only.
Installing it in a standard transmission vehicle is dangerous and is contrary to
its intended use.
➤ Virtual tach
Virtual Tach is a new feature for Directed this year. It is the default RPM-sensing
method for the new Responder LE hybrid keyless entry /remote start systems.
Virtual Tach gives the installer the performance of a hard wired tach wire, with
the convenience of voltage sensing. It is far superior to any voltage-sense feature
you’ve tried before.
Virtual Tach monitors the cranking voltage of the vehicle using a very fast micro
controller and an analog-to-digital converter. The microprocessor “saves” the
base voltage as a reference. When Virtual Tach “sees” the slightest uptick in
voltage, indicating that the alternator is charging the battery, the starter motor
shuts off instantly.
➤ D2D
The system has the ability to interface with an XK module through the D2D port.
The advantage to using a D2D interface is that there is less wiring involved in
the installation. Check the XK module installation guide to determine which wires
are not needed, and which options are available.

➤ Before beginning the installation
•
•
•
•
•
Please read this entire installation guide before beginning the installation.
The installation of this remote start system requires interfacing with many of
the vehicle’s systems. Many new vehicles use low-voltage or multiplexed
systems that can be damaged by low resistance testing devices, such as
test lights and logic probes (computer safe test lights). Test all circuits with a
high quality digital multi-meter before making connections.
Do not disconnect the battery if the vehicle has an anti-theft-coded radio.
If equipped with an air bag, avoid disconnecting the battery if possible.
Many airbag systems display a diagnostic code through the warning lights
after the lights lose power. Disconnecting the battery causes the anti-theft
code to be erased, which can then require a trip to the dealer.
If using an external LED or Valet Switch, check with the customer about
where to locate the switch.
To avoid accidental battery drainage; turn off the interior lights or remove
the dome light fuse.
Roll down a window to avoid being locked out of the car.

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). NPC can bypass trigger zones, making
them appear to stop working. See the Nuisance Prevention® Circuitry
section of the Owner's Guide.
Review and complete the Safety Check section of this guide prior to the
vehicle reassembly.

Component locations and finding wires
For detailed information on where to locate components, and how to find the
wires you need, please refer to the Direct Tech web site at www.directechs.
com.
➤Valet/program switch
IMPORTANT! When the vehicle is delivered, please show the user where this
switch is located and how to disarm the system with it.
Ensure that the location you pick for the switch has sufficient clearance to the
rear. The switch should be well hidden. It should be placed so passengers or
stored items (such as in a glove box or center console) cannot accidentally hit it.
The switch fits into a 9/32-inch hole.
This system has Remote Valet. The user can enter and exit Valet Mode without
having to reach the Valet/Program switch. This feature was introduced so that
switch location was less critical in day-to-day use. As long as the Valet/Program
switch can be reached to disarm without a transmitter, easy access is not important.

➤Status LED
Things to remember when positioning the Status LED:
•
•
•
•
10
It should be visible from both sides and the rear of the vehicle, if possible.
It needs at least 1/2-inch clearance to the rear.
It is easiest to remove a small panel, such as a switch blank or a dash
bezel, before drilling a 9/32-inch hole.
Use quick-disconnects near the LED wires if the panel is removable. This lets
mechanics or other installers remove the panel without cutting the wires.

Making your wiring connections
Before making your connections, plan how your wires will be routed through
the vehicle. For instance, the red 12V constant input and the remote start ignition wires are often routed together to the ignition switch harness. In order to
keep the wiring neat and make it harder to find, you may wish to wrap these
wires together in electrical tape or conceal them in tubing similar to what the
manufacturer used.
There are two acceptable ways of making a wire connection - solder con­nec­
tions and crimp connectors. When properly performed, either type of connection
is reliable and trouble-free. Regardless of whether you solder your connections
or you use mechanical type crimp-on connections, ensure that all connections
are mechanically sound and that they are insulated, especially when connecting
data lines in the vehicle.
Cheap electrical tape, especially when poorly applied, is not a reliable insulator. It often falls off in hot weather. Use good quality electrical tape or heat
shrink.
• Never twist-and-tape the wires together without soldering.
• Never use “fuse taps”, as they can damage fuse box terminals.
If you use tapping connectors such as T-Taps (not to be confused with ScotchLocks), avoid using them in higher-current applications (constant 12V, ground,
etc.) These connectors are inferior in quality and should be avoided.

NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH INPUT
Connect this wire to the provided toggle (override) switch as shown in figure
A. Connect the other wire from the toggle switch to the park/neutral switch in
the vehicle. This wire will test with ground with the gear selector either in PARK
or NEUTRAL. This will prevent the vehicle from accidentally being started while
in a drive gear. This input MUST rest at ground in order for the remote start
system to operate. Connected properly the vehicle will only start while in PARK
or NEUTRAL.
In some vehicles, the park/neutral position switch activates a factory starter lock
out that will not allow the starter to operate in a drive gear. In these vehicles,
connect this wire to the toggle switch as shown in figure B. Connect the other
wire from the toggle switch to chassis ground.
Important: Always perform the Safety Check section of this installation guide to
verify that the vehicle cannot be started in ANY drive gear and that the override
switch is functioning properly.

Neutral safety switch interface
Some vehicles do not have an electrical neutral safety switch. Instead, the vehicle has a mechanical neutral safety switch that physically interrupts the starter
wire and is used when the vehicle is in any drive gear. If the remote start is
interfaced before this switch, it will provide protection from starting in gear.
However, some vehicles combine the column shift mechanism and the mechanical neutral safety switch into one mechanical part.
Note: You must complete the remote start system installation before doing the
following test. Ensure that the remote start system is functioning normally. This
includes connecting to the brake as a shut-down.

If the starter engages and the vehicle is a General Motors product or
Dodge Dakota pickup, you can find an alternative shut-down method
to prevent the starter from engaging. Refer to www.directechs.com for
Document 1008 under the Resource tab. If the vehicle is not a General
Motors product or a Dodge Dakota pickup, please call Directed Electronics Technical Support for an alternative shut-down method.
Do not return the vehicle to the customer until this feature is properly
installed!

D2D programmer interface - 4-pin red plug
The 4-pin red port is for interfacing with an XK module through D2D, or you can
use it for programming with the Bitwriter. If the XK module is unplugged so the
port can be used for Bitwriter programming, you must reprogram the XK module
when plugging it back into the 4-pin red port.
When the learn routines have previously been programmed using the
Bitwriter, they may have been locked. Before proceeding with reprogramming the learn routines, they must be unlocked with the Bitwriter
- this cannot be done manually with the Valet switch.
Note: Bitwriters require software v2.5. Bitwriters with date code of 6A or older
require an IC upgrade (p/n 998M). Some bitwriters with a date code of 6B do
not require the IC upgrade, refer to Tech Tip # 1112 for more information.

Tachometer settings
➤ Virtual tach
To program Virtual Tach:
1.
2.
3.
4.
After the install is complete, remote start the car.
If the car does not start on the first attempt, let the remote start attempt
again.
Once the car starts, let it run until the parking lights come on.
When the parking lights come on, shut off the remote start with the remote
- that's it! Virtual Tach is programmed.
To reset Virtual Tach, go into the remote programming grid and choose option
#4. Virtual Tach cannot be reset with the Bitwriter.
Virtual Tach handles disengaging the starter motor during remote starting – it
does not address over-rev. If the customer wants to have the over-rev protection capability, now listed as optional in the owner’s guide, the tach wire must
be connected. This may involve more installation shop charges than initially
quoted.
Important: If the Virtual Tach mode over cranks or doesn't
crank the vehicle long enough to start and run the car, use the
Bitwriter to add or subtract the starter output time. You can
adjust the output time in increments of 50mSec of the learned
time using the Bitwriter.

➤ Tach threshold On/Off
In most cases, this jumper can be left in the Off position. Some new vehicles use
less than 12 volts in their ignition systems. The unit may have trouble learning the
tach signal in these vehicles. Changing the jumper to the On setting changes
the trigger threshold of the digital tach circuit so that it will work with these type
vehicles.
➤Light flash (+) / (-) polarity
The internal fuse is used to determine the light flash output. In the (+) position, the
onboard relay will output (+)12V on the WHITE wire, H1/11. In the (-) position,
the on-board relay will supply a (-) output When wiring into a multiplex circuit,
you can replace the fuse with a resistor (paying attention to the polarity setting).
(Refer to diagram on p.24, H1/4 White/ Brown wire description).
Note: For parking light circuits that draw 10 amps or more, the internal jumper
must be switched to a (-) light flash output. P/N 8617 or a standard automotive
SPDT relay must be used on the H1/11 light flash output harness wire.

Transmitter/receiver Learn Routine™
The system comes with transmitters that have been taught to the receiver. The
receiver can store up to 4 different transmitter codes in memory. Use the following learn routine to add transmitters to the system.
The learn routine may be locked if previously programmed using the Bitwriter®.
If the siren generates one long chirp when attempting to program the unit, the
learn routine is locked and must be unlocked using the Bitwriter® before proceeding.
The Valet/Program switch, plugged into the blue port, is used for programming.
There is a basic sequence to remember whenever programming this unit: Door,
Key, Choose, Transmit and Release.
1.
Open a door. (The GREEN wire, h1/8, or the VIOLET, H1/6 must be connected.)
2.
Insert the key. Turn the ignition to the ON
position. The heavy gauge pink wire must be connected.
3.
Choose. Within 10 seconds, press and release the
Program switch corresponding to the number of
the desired function step listed in the following table.
Once you have selected the function step, press the switch once more and hold
it. The LED flashes and the horn honks to confirm the selected functional step. Do
not release the Program switch.

Multi-level security arming
Multi-Level Security Arming is a feature that allows the user to select which of the
system's inputs or sensors will be active and which will be bypassed when the
system is armed. (See Table of Zones section of this guide.) Multi-Level Security
Arming can only be accessed from a standard configuration transmitter. Pressing
the arm button of the standard configuration transmitter again within five seconds
of arming the system will activate the Multi-Level Security feature. Each time the
arm button is pressed again, a different security level is selected. The different
levels of security are 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.

System features learn routine
The System Features Learn Routine dictates how the unit operates. It is possible to
access and change any of the feature settings using the Valet/program switch.
However, this process can be simplified by using the Bitwriter®. Any of the
settings can be changed and then assigned to one of four remote controls. This
feature is called Owner Recognition. Each time that particular remote control is
used to disarm the system, the assigned feature settings will be recalled. Owner
Recognition is only possible when programming the unit via the Bitwriter®.
If programming with the Bitwriter®, the learn routine can be locked or
unlocked. If the learn routine has previously been locked, it must be
unlocked with Bitwriter® - this cannot be done manually with the Valet
switch.
1. Open a door. ((The GREEN wire, h1/8, or the VIOLET, H1/6 must be connected.)
2. Ignition. Turn the ignition on, and then off.
3. Select menu. Press and hold the Valet/Program
switch. When the LED flashes once and the siren chirps
Menu One has been selected. Continue to hold the
switch until the LED flashes twice and the siren chirps
twice Menu Two has now been selected. Release the
switch after the Menu choice has been selected.

4.
Choose. Within 10 seconds, press and release
the Valet/Program switch the number of times
corresponding to the feature number you want to
program and then press and hold the switch. (See
Feature Menus. After a second, the LED will flash
to indicate which feature you have accessed. For
example, in Menu Two, groups of eight flashes
would indicate access to the activation pulse setting
(Feature 2-8). The siren will also chirp eight times.
5.
Transmit. The transmitter is used to select the desired
setting. Pressing
changes the feature to the LED On
setting (or flashes once for features with more than 2
settings). The siren honks once. Pressing
changes the setting to the LED OFF setting (or flashes two
or more times for features with more than 2 settings) .
�������
�������
6.
Release, the Valet/program switch.
You can advance from feature to feature by pressing and releasing the Valet/
Program switch the number of times necessary to get from the feature you just
programmed to the feature you wish to access. For example, in Menu One, if
you just programmed Feature 1-2 and you next want to program Feature 1-3
to off, release the Valet/Program switch. Press and release it once to advance
from Feature 1-2 to Feature 1-3. Then press it once more and hold it. The LED
will flash in groups of 3 and the siren chirps to confirm that you have accessed
Feature 1-3.
The learn routine is exited when:
• The door is closed.
• The ignition is turned on.
• The Valet/Program switch is pressed too many times.
• More than 15 seconds elapses between programming steps.
Once long siren chirp indicates that the Learn routine has been exited.

Feature descriptions
The features of the system are described below. Features that have additional
settings are selected only when programming with the Bitwriter® are indicated
by the following icon:
Default settings are in bold. The numbers in parentheses indicate the number
of times the Status LED flashes.
➤ Menu 1 - Basic
1-1 Active/Passive Arming: When active arming, the system orms only when
the transmitter is used. When set to passive, the system arms automatically 30
seconds after the last door is closed. To alert the consumer of passive arming,
the siren chirps 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 arms, but the siren does not chirp.
1-2 Chirps On/Off: This feature controls the chirps that confirm the arming and
disarming of the system.
1-3 Ignition Lock On/Off: When turned On, the doors lock 3 seconds after the
ignition is turned Off.
1-4 Ignition unlock On/Off: When ON this feature unlocks the doors 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.
44
© 2008 Directed Electronics. All rights reserved.
1-6 PANIC WITH IGNITION ON: This feature controls whether or not the panic
mode is available with the ignition on. In some states, there are laws prohibiting
a siren sounding in a moving vehicle. This feature makes the system compliant
with these regulations.
1-7 DOOR LOCK PULSE DURATION: The default setting is 0.8 second door
lock pulses. Some European vehicles, such as Mercedes-Benz and Audi, require
longer lock and unlock pulses to operate the vacuum pump. Programming the
system to provide 3.5 second (2) pulses, accommodates the door lock interface
in these vehicles. (Refer to Tech Tip 1041 on Directechs, for wiring information
regarding Type E door locks interfacing). The 0.4 second (3) pulse is required
on some vehicles where the lock wires also control the windows. The 0.8 second pulse causes the windows to open/close when locking or unlocking.
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 starter disable that works independently of the security system. When turned
on, the orange, ground-when-armed output (H1/1) 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 starter
in 30 seconds. AED does not occur in Valet mode and can be bypassed using
the emergency override procedure. The transmitter can be used to disarm AED,
however, the system must be armed and then disarmed, using the transmitter,
to disarm AED.
1-10 ARMED WHILE DRIVING (AWD) ON/OFF: In the default setting (Armed
While Driving), the system can be armed with the ignition on. When armed,
the ground-when-armed is not active and the sensors are bypassed. The door
triggers will remain active.
© 2008 Directed Electronics. All rights reserved.
45
1-11 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.
1-12 HORN OUTPUT PULSED/CONSTANT: Program for either a pulsed output
or a continuous output when triggered.
1-13 HORN FUNCTION (FULL ALARM ONLY)/SIREN FUNCTION (20mS,
30mS, 40mS, 50mS): Program for output when the alarm is fully triggered or
as the siren (arming/disarming and warnaway and full trigger with timing options).
1-14 COMFORT CLOSURE—ON (1), OFF (2) Comfort Closure 2 (3): The system can be programmed to close the windows when the system is locked. If
programmed On, the lock output provides a 20 second pulse when the system
is locked. The output is cancelled if the unlock button is pressed. In the Off setting
the alarm does not perform this function.
(2) Comfort closure 1 - Activates the 20 second timer after the door lock pulse.
(3) Comfort closure 2 - Activates the 20 second timer with the door lock pulse.
To test if the car has the comfort closure:
1. Insert the key into the drivers door key cylinder.
2. Turn the key to the lock position and hold for about 10 seconds. Some cars
require that you turn the key once, release, and then turn and hold into the lock
position.
If Comfort closure is available, the windows (and in some cars the sunroof)
close.
Important: Comfort closure can only be used on cars that
have the capability of closing the windows (and on some cars
the sunroof as well) with the key cylinder in the door.

➤ Menu 2 - Advanced
2-1 SIREN DURATION 30/60 SECONDS: It is possible to program the unit
to sound for 30 or 60 seconds during the triggered sequence. Some states
have laws regulating how long a security system can sound. When using the
Bitwriter®, the siren can be programmed to sound for any length of time from 1
second to 180 seconds.
2-2 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 sees 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 states have laws regulating
how many times a security system can trigger before it is considered a nuisance
and the vehicle is towed away.
2-3 PROGRESSIVE DOOR TRIGGER ON/OFF: 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 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.
2-4 VALET DISARM PULSE COUNT 1 TO 5 PULSES: The system can be programmed to count the number of presses of the valet switch before disarming
the security system. The factory default setting is one pulse. The unit can also be
set for two to five pulses.
Ghost Switch option: For added security, the GRAY wire on the two-pin Valet/
Program plug can be connected to any switch in the vehicle that provides a
positive (+) momentary pulse.
© 2008 Directed Electronics. All rights reserved.
47
2-5 DOOR TRIGGER ERROR ON/OFF: This feature controls the error chirp that
is generated if the system is armed with the door trigger active. This is useful in
vehicles that have a long dome light delay after the door has been closed. If
the system is armed before the dome light has turned off, the security system will
generate the door trigger error chirp. If this error chirp is not desired, use this
feature to disable the door open error chirp. If the bypass chirp is turned off, no
bypass chirp will be generated, even if a door is accidentally left open.
2-6 IGNITION CONTROLLED DOME LIGHT SUPERVISION ON/OFF: If turned
on, the system will turn on the dome light for 60 seconds when the ignition is
turned off. The optional dome light supervision feature must be installed as described in the Wire Connection Guide.
2-7 UNLOCK OUTPUT—1, 2 PULSES: This will program the unlock output to
one or two pulses. When the double pulse unlock feature is turned on, the BLUE
door lock harness wire will supply two negative pulses instead of a single pulse.
At the same time, the GREEN door lock harness wire will supply two positive
pulses instead of a single pulse. At the same time, the GREEN door lock harness
wire will supply two positive pulses instead of a single pulse. This makes it possible to directly interface with double pulse vehicles without any extra parts for
unlock and lock outputs (see below).
2-8 LOCK OUTPUT—1, 2 PULSES: This will program the lock output to one or
two pulses. When the double pulse lock feature is turned on, the BLUE door
lock harness wire will supply two positive pulses instead of a single pulse. At the
same time, the GREEN door lock harness wire will supply two negative pulses
instead of a single pulse.
2-9 FACTORY ALARM DISARM WITH TRUNK RELEASE In the default setting the
factory alarm disarm output will disarm the factory alarm system any time the
button(s) controlling trunk release is pressed.
2-10 FACTORY ALARM DISARM—WITH UNLOCK, BEFORE UNLOCK, REMOTE START ONLY: In the default setting the factory alarm disarm output will disarm the factory alarm system any time the button(s) controlling Unlock is pressed.
The “Before Unlock” output to disarms the factory alarm before the unlock output
activates and before remote start is activated. The “Remote Start Only” output
disarms the factory alarm only before the remote start is activated.

2-11 FACTORY ALARM DISARM PULSES—SINGLE, DOUBLE: Selectable for a
single or double-pulse for the vehicle’s factory alarm disarm input requirements.
2-12 AUX 1 VALIDITY/LATCHED/LATCHED RESET WITH IGNITION/30
SECOND TIMED OUTPUT: This wire provides a (-) 200mA output whenever
the transmitter button(s) controlling AUX 1 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 Aux 1 button 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 Aux 1 button 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.
Note: All auxilary channel timed outputs can be programmed using the Bitwriter® (1-90 seconds).
2-13 Aux 1 LINKING (NONE)/ARM, DISARM, REMOTE START: When programming to validity or timed output this can be programmed to activate when
arming or disarming (or remote starting) with the transmitter.
2-14 AUX 2 VALIDITY/LATCHED/LATCHED RESET WITH IGNITION/30 SECOND TIMED OUTPUT: AUX 2 can be programmed for these output configurations. The unit is set to the default validity output. To change the configuration,
use the two-chirp setting to toggle through the different configurations. Refer to
feature 2-10 for additional detail.

➤ Menu 3 - Remote start
3-1 Engine Checking Virtual Tach: (1) When set to “virtual tach” (1) the remote
start monitors the cranking voltage of the vehicle and sets it as a reference point.
Fifteen seconds after the crank output sequence the remote start checks the voltage again to determine if the vehicle is running.
When set to voltage, (2) the unit cranks the starter for the programmed time and
then attempts to sense that the engine is running by detecting an increase in voltage. If programmed Off (3) the vehicle cranks for the programmed crank time.
The tach setting or voltage setting is not checked to verify that the car is running.
In the OFF setting, if the vehicle fails to start, the ignition stays on for the run duration. Using tach or either of the voltage settings is recommended.
When set to Tachometer, (4) the unit references the learned tach signal to disengage the starter. In addition it will monitor the RPM and shut down if the engine
RPM is too high or too low.
3-2 RUN TIME 12, 24, 60 MINUTES: Selects the time in minutes that the
system will operate the engine until the system "times out". This is the maximum
operation period and the system may be shut down using a shutdown at any
time. Using the Bitwriter®, the run time can be programmed for any duration
from 1-60 minutes.
3-3 Parking Lights Constant: In the default setting, the parking lights (if connected)will come on solid during the remote start runtime. In the two- flash setting
the parking lights will flash during the remote start runtime. In the OFF setting, the
parking lights will not come ON or flash, when the vehicle is remote started.

3-4 CRANK TIME 0.6/0.8/1.0/1.2/1.4/1.6/1.8/2.0/4.0 SECONDS: If
the unit is programmed for no engine checking or voltage sense, the crank time
must be set to the appropriate duration. The default setting is 0.6 second. If a
different crank time is desired, select feature 3-5 and select either 0.6 second
by using the one-chirp setting or toggle through the higher settings by using the
two-chirp settings.
3-5 ACTIVATION PULSE 1: This allows the system to use 1 or 2 pulses to activate
the remote start sequence. The default setting is 1-pulse.
Note: This setting affects both the input wire and the remote control.
3-6 2nd IGNITION/ACCESSORY OUTPUT: This will allow the PINK/WHITE to
be used as a 2nd ignition or an accessory. The default is 2nd ignition.
3-7 ACCESSORY STATE DURING WAIT-TO-START OFF/ON: This feature will
allow the selection of the accessory output to be ON or OFF during wait-tostart.
3-8 2nd STATUS OUTPUT NORMAL/REAR DEFOGGER LATCHED 10-MIN/
PULSE: This feature will allow selection of status output or a rear defogger mode
that turns on ten seconds after the vehicle has started if the vehicle interior temperature is below 55 degrees F. The defogger mode has two selections, latched
or pulsed. Latched mode will only stay on for 10 minutes.
3-9 ANTI-GRIND ON/OFF: With the anti-grind On (default) the ground-whenarmed output will be active during remote start operation. If accessories such as
a voice module or window module are added to the unit, it may be necessary
to program this feature off.
3-10 DIESEL TIMER—WAIT-TO-START/15, 30, 45 SECONDS: Default is the
“Wait-to-Start” input control wire, or programmable to ignore the input control
wire by a delay of 15, 30, or 45 seconds. This feature can also be programmed with the Bitwriter® and with a delay from 1 to 90 seconds.

3-11 RUN TIME (TIMER MODE)—12, 3, 6, 9 MINUTES: Selects the time in
minutes that the system will operate the engine until the system "times out". This
is the maximum operation period and the system may be shut down using a
shutdown at any time. Using the Bitwriter®, the run time can be programmed for
any duration from 1-16 minutes.
3-12 TIMER MODE—TIMED STARTS/TEMPERATURE STARTS: The system will
start every 3-hours until canceled by the brake, hood, or neutral safety shut-down
wires (a maximum of 6 times). The temperature start mode will not start the vehicle unless the interior temperature of the vehicle is less than 0 degrees F. The
temperature start mode will exit after 18 hours.
3-13 SHORT RUN/TURBO 1/3/5/10 MINUTES: When the
and
buttons on the transmitter are pressed simultaneously, the vehicle will start for the
programmed short run time. The factory default is 1 minute.

Safety check
Before vehicle reassembly, the remote start system must be checked to ensure safe
and trouble-free operation. The following test procedure must be used to verify
proper installation and operation of the system. The installation must be completed before testing, including connection to the brake switch and hood switch.
1.
2.
3.
Test the BRAKE shutdown circuit: With the vehicle in Park (P), activate the
remote start system. Once the engine is running, press the brake pedal.
The engine should shut down immediately. If the engine continues to run,
check the brake circuit connection.
Test the HOOD PIN shutdown circuit: With the vehicle in Park (P), open the
hood. Activate the remote start system. The vehicle should not start. If the
starter engages, check your hood pin and connections.
Test the NEUTRAL SAFETY shutdown circuit.
Important: Make sure there is adequate clearance to the
front and rear of the vehicle before attempting this test.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
Make sure the hood is closed and no other shutdown circuits are active.
Set the emergency brake.
Turn the ignition key to run position but do not start the engine.
Put the vehicle in Drive (D).
Put your foot over the brake pedal but do not press down on it. Be ready
to step on the brake to shutdown the remote start system.
Activate the remote start system.
•
If the starter engages, immediately step on the brake to shut down the
system. If it does engage, recheck the neutral safety input connection. The
vehicle may use a mechanical neutral safety switch. (See H3/1 BLACK/
WHITE neutral safety switch input in Remote Start Harness Wire Connection Guide section of this guide.)
•
If the starter does not engage, the test is complete. Once the system passes
the tests, the vehicle can be re-assembled and delivered. Do not the use
the remote start system or finalize the installation if it fails any of the safety
check tests.

Troubleshooting
➤ Alarm
• Shock sensor doesn't trigger the alarm:
Has the NPC system been triggered? If so, you will hear 5 chirps when disarming. To check this, turn the ignition key on and off to clear the NPCs memory,
and then retest the shock sensor. For a detailed description of NPC, see Nuisance Prevention® Circuitry section of the Owner's Guide.
•
Door input does not immediatelly trigger full alarm. Instead chirps are
heard for the first 3 sec
That's how the progressive two-stage door input works! This is a feature of this
system. This is an instant trigger, remember, since even if the door is instantly
closed again, the progression from chirps to constant siren will continue.
• Closing the door triggers the system, but opening the door does not:
Have you correctly identified the type of door switch system? This happens often
when the wrong door input has been used. (See Door Lock Harness Wire Connection Guide section of this guide.)
•
System does not passively arm until it is remotely armed and then disarmed:
Are the door inputs connected? Is the H1/6 blue wire connected to the door
trigger wire in the vehicle? Either the H1/5 green or the H1/7 violet should be
used instead. (See wiring diagrams.)
•
Door input does not respond with the progressive trigger, but with immediate full alarm:
Does the Status LED indicate that the trigger was caused by the shock sensor?
(See Diagnostics section of this guide.) The shock sensor, if set to extreme sensitivity, may be detecting the door unlatching before the door switch sends its
signal. Reducing the sensitivity can solve this problem.
• The Valet/Program switch doesn't work.
Is it plugged into the correct socket? See Plug-In LED and Valet/Program Switch
section of this guide.

• Status LED doesn't work.
You've probably guessed already, but here goes: Is it plugged in? (See Plug-In
LED and Valet/Program Switch section of this guide.) Is the LED plugged into
the correct socket?
• Door locks operate backwards.
This unit has easily-reversed lock/unlock outputs. Recheck wire connections to
see if you have reversed these.

The remote start will not activate
Check the harnesses and their connections. Make sure that the harnesses
are completely plugged into the remote start module. Make sure there are
good connections to the vehicle wiring.
Check voltage and fuses on the main 12-pin harness and on the heavy
gauge remote start harness.
Check diagnostics. The diagnostics will tell you which shutdown is active
or not connected.
The remote start will activate, but the starter never engages.
Check for voltage on the purple starter wire two seconds after the remote
start becomes active. If there is voltage present, skip to Step 4. If there is
not voltage present, advance to Step 2.
Check the 30A fuses.
If the gray/black wait-to-start wire is detecting ground upon activation, the
starter will not crank.
Make sure the purple starter wire is connected on the starter side of the
optional starter kill/anti-grind relay.
Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? Some immobilizer systems will not
allow the vehicle to crank if active.
Check connections. The heavy gauge remote start input wires on the
heavy gauge 10-pin connector should have a solid connection. “T-taps”
or “scotch locks” are not recommended for any high current heavy gauge
wiring.

The vehicle starts, but immediately dies.
Does the vehicle have an immobilizer? The vehicle’s immobilizer will cut
the fuel and/or spark during unauthorized starting attempts.
Is the remote start programmed for virtual tach voltage sense? If so, the
crank time may not be set high enough. Voltage sense will not work on
some vehicles.
Check diagnostics. Sometimes a shutdown will become active during
cranking or just after cranking.
The vehicle starts, but the starter keeps running.
Is the system programmed for engine checking off or virtual tach voltage
sense? When programmed for either of these features, the engine cranks
for the pre programmed crank time regardless of how long it takes for the
vehicle to actually start. Adjust to a lower cranking time.
Was the Tach Learn successful? The LED must light solid and bright to
indicate a successful learn.
Make sure that there is a tach signal at the purple/white tach input wire
of the remote start. If there is not a tach signal, recheck the connection to
the vehicle’s tach wire and make sure the wire is not broken or shorted to
ground leading to the remote start.
The vehicle starts, but will only run for 10 seconds.
Is the remote start programmed for voltage sense? If this does not work, a
tach wire should be used.
Check shutdown diagnostics.
•
The climate control system does not work while the unit is operating the
vehicle.
Either the wrong accessory wire is being energized or more than one ignition or accessory wire must be energized in order to operate the climate
control system.
