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 dealer.
When properly installed, this system can start the vehicle via a command
signal from the remote control transmitter. Therefore, never operate the system
in an enclosed area 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 control transmitters to assure that the
system does not unintentionally remote start the vehicle. THE 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 AT ALL TIMES REMAIN CLOSED. These precautions
are the sole responsibility of the user.
Remote starters on manual transmission vehicles operate differently than those
with automatic transmission because you must leave your car in neutral. You
must read this Owner’s Guide to familiarize yourself with the proper procedures regarding manual transmission remote starters. If you have any questions,
ask your installer or contact Directed at 1-800-753-0600.
Before remote starting a manual transmission vehicle, be sure to:
• Leave the vehicle in neutral and be sure no one is standing in front or
behind the vehicle.
• Only remote start on a flat surface
• Have the parking brake fully engaged
Warning! It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure the parking/emergency
brake properly functions. Failure to do so can result in personal injury or property damage. We recommend the owner have the parking/emergency brake
system inspected and adjusted by a qualified automotive shop biannually.

Use of this product in a manner contrary to its intended mode of operation
may result in property damage, personal injury, or death. (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 must also have 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 dealer in accordance with the Safety Check outlined in
the product installation guide. If the vehicle starts in gear, cease remote start
operation immediately and consult with the authorized Directed dealer to fix
the problem.
After the remote start module has been installed, contact your authorized
dealer to have him or her test the remote start module by performing the Safety
Check outlined in the product 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 the
installer must properly reinstall the remote start system so that the vehicle does
not start in gear. All installations must be performed by an authorized Directed
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. YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY CEASE THE USE OF THE UNIT AND SEEK THE ASSISTANCE OF AN
AUTHORIZED Directed DEALER TO REPAIR OR DISCONNECT THE INSTALLED
REMOTE START MODULE. DIRECTED WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE OR
PAY FOR INSTALLATION OR REINSTALLATION COSTS.
This product is designed for fuel injected vehicles only. Use of this product in a
standard transmission vehicle must be in strict accordance with this guide.
This product should not be installed in any convertible vehicles, soft, or hard
top with a manual transmission. Installation in such vehicles may pose certain
risk.

Safety features
This system has several important safety features to ensure proper operation of
the motor and prevent accidental damage to the engine or its components.
➤ Optional starter anti-grind circuitry
Whenever the vehicle is remote started, advanced anti-grind circuitry prevents
the starter from engaging, even if the key is turned to the start position. This
prevents damage to the starter motor if the key is turned to the start position
during remote start operation.
Note: Anti-grind circuitry only works when the remote start system is operating
the motor and the optional Failsafe® Starter Kill relay is installed.
➤ Disabling the remote start system
This feature allows the remote start unit to be temporarily disabled to prevent
the vehicle from being remote started accidentally. This feature is useful when
the vehicle is being serviced or stored in an enclosed area.
To disable the remote start, move the shutdown toggle switch to the Off position. Check with your installer for the location of the shutdown switch.

Diagnostics
The microprocessor at the heart of the system is constantly monitoring the
switches that are connected to the main unit.
➤ Locking
If the system is locked at the same time that the door input is active, you will
hear one horn honk to indicate locking, and then a second horn honk to
indicate Bypass Notification.
Note: Bypass Notification does not occur if the optional horn and door input
is not installed or when the system is in Silent Mode or if the notification honks
have been programmed Off by the installer.
➤ Unlocking
Extra honks when unlocking the system is a notification that the batteries in the
remote are low and need to be replaced.
Important: The optional horn honk feature must be
installed.
➤ Remote start
This system can provide you with information to indicate what the problem is
when using the remote start. When the remote start is activated and fails to
engage, count the parking light flashes to determine the problem. The parking
lights will flash between 5 - 8 times to indicate what caused the no start situation.
•
5 flashes: brake wire is active
•
6 flashes: hood pin is active
•
7 flashes: manual transmission mode is enabled and not initialized
•
8 flashes: neutral safety wire has no ground or the remote start
defeat toggle switch is off.
Keep a record of the number of flashes, to assist your installer when taking the
vehicle in for service.

Owner recognition
Owner recognition lets up to four users of the system have unique settings to
meet their specific needs. It is almost like having four separate systems in your
vehicle, one for each user. This feature is only available to authorized dealers
using the Bitwriter or Bitwriter 2 program tool.
Rapid resume logic
This Directed system will store its current state to non-volatile memory. If power
is lost and then reconnected the system will recall the stored state from memory.
For example, if the unit is in Valet Mode and the battery is disconnected for
any reason, such as servicing the car, when the battery is reconnected the unit
is still in Valet Mode. This applies to all states of the system including lock or
unlock.
Power saver mode
Your system will automatically enter Power Saver Mode while locked or in
Valet Mode, after a period of time in which no operation has been performed.
This lowers the current draw on the vehicle’s battery. Power Saver Mode takes
over under the following conditions:
Power Saver when the system is locked: After the system has been Locked for
24 hours the status LED on the control center flashes at half its normal rate,
decreasing the system’s current draw.
Power Saver in Valet Mode: When the system enters Valet Mode the Status
LED on the control center illuminates steadily. If the vehicle is not used (ignition
is not turned on) for a one-hour period while the system is in Valet Mode, the
status LED shuts Off. If the system remains in Valet Mode, the LED comes back
on the next time the ignition is turned On, and then Off.

Programming options
Your system has many custom programmable options. Some may require installation labor. Ask your authorized dealer for details.
The following is a list of the programmable options, with the factory settings in
Bold.
•
Active locking (remote only) passive locking, the system automatically
locks the doors 30-seconds after the last door is closed; or Auto Re-lock
automatically re-locks the doors 60 seconds after unlocking (if no door is
opened).
•
Locking/Unlocking with no horn honk confirmations On or Off.
•
Ignition controlled door lock feature On or Off: When this feature is programmed on, the doors lock three seconds after the ignition is turned on,
and unlock when the ignition is turned Off. The ignition lock and unlock
are independent features that can be programmed separately.
•
Panic mode enabled/disabled when the ignition is turned on or completely turned Off.
•
Comfort closure is a programming option which closes the vehicle’s
windows after remote locking. Note: 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.

Convenience expansions
Listed below are some of the expansion options available. Please consult your
dealer for a complete explanation of all the options available to you.
Power Trunk Release: The accessory output of the system can operate a factory power release for the vehicle’s trunk or hatch. Sometimes an optional relay
is required. If the factory release is not power-activated, Directed®’s 522T
trunk release solenoid can often be added.
Power Window Control: Automatic power window control is provided with
the 529T and 530T systems. These can operate power windows, and can roll
them up automatically when the system is Locked, roll them down, or both up
and down.

Glossary of terms
Control Center: The control center contains the system’s radio-frequency
antenna, the valet and override switch, and the Status LED. For maximum
remote-control range, the Control Center is usually located at the top of the
windshield, centered near the rear-view mirror.
Control Module: 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's functions.
Failsafe® Starter Kill (if equipped): An automatic switch controlled by the
system which prevents the vehicle’s starter from cranking whenever the system
is locked. The vehicle is never prevented from cranking when the system is
unlocked in Valet® Mode, or should the starter kill switch fail. Your system
is ready for this feature, however installation of this feature may require additional labor.
Input: Any physical connection to the system. An input can be provided by
existing systems in the vehicle, such as ignition or courtesy lights.
In-vehicle status LED: A light used to indicate the status of your system. It is
located on your systems control center.
MTS: Manual transmission start. Procedure required for using the remote start
in a vehicle with a manual transmission.
RF: Radio frequency
Valet Button: A small push button switch located on your systems control center.
It is used to override the starter interrupt when a remote is lost or damaged, or
to enter or exit Valet Mode.
