FEATURES
Your RS-3000 Auto Security Alarm
System’s voice alert warns away potential thieves and alerts you to trouble in a clear, loud, male voice and
shouts out a panic alert in a female
voice. It also includes advanced features that help protect your vehicle
from theft, yet you can install it in less
than an hour. The two convenient
key-chain transmitters lets you arm
and disarm the system, sound a panic alert, or activate the car finder feature when you are away from your
vehicle.
Your RS-3000 includes these features.
Note: The following features marked
with an asterisk (*) might qualify you
for a discount on your vehicle insurance premium. Show your insurance
agent the supplied certificate.
Talking Alarm with 120 dB Alert —
advises you of the alarm’s status
(armed or disarmed) and warns away

INSTALLATION ORDER
You can install your system in just 6
easy steps:
1. Connect the starter disable module.
2. Connect the system to power.
3. Train the remote controls.
4. Install the backup battery.
5. Mount the system.
6. Install the status indicator.
We recommend you get a wiring diagram for your vehicle before you begin, so you can easily find your
vehicle’s starter solenoid wire. Wiring
diagrams are available from your vehicle’s dealer or from the Auto Security Helpline at 1-800-598-2527.
You also need a 12-volt test lamp or
DC voltmeter and a wire-piercing
probe adapter (such as RadioShack
Cat. No. 278-715) to ensure proper
installation.
CONNECTING THE
STARTER DISABLE
MODULE
The starter disable module interrupts
power to your vehicle’s starter solenoid so the vehicle does not start
when the system is armed. Follow
these steps to connect the module.
1. Using the starter solenoid’s colorcoded wires as a guide, locate
the wire that goes from your vehicle’s ignition (key) switch to the
solenoid. This wire is most easily
found where the wires connect to
the ignition switch near the steering column.
2. Connect the negative (usually
black) lead from a 12-volt test
lamp or DC voltmeter to a metal
vehicle body part.
3. Connect the wire-piercing probe
to the positive lead and press the
pin tip through the solenoid wire’s
insulation and into the wire itself.
4. Start your vehicle. The test light
should light or the meter should
indicate voltage only while the
engine is cranking (not while it
is stopped or running).
If the test fails, repeat Steps 2–4
using a different wire until you
find the correct one.
6

49-830.fm Page 7 Thursday, August 19, 1999 10:37 AM
5. Turn off the engine. Then cut the
wire you located in Steps 2–4 at a
point where there are several
inches of wire on each side of the
cut.
Note: After you cut this wire, you
are unable to start your vehicle
until you complete the installation.
6. Use one of the supplied yellow
wire tap-ins to connect the starter
disable module’s white wire to the
wire going to the solenoid.

8. Route the main system’s orange
wire through an existing hole in
the firewall, or drill a 1/4-inch hole
in the firewall, taking care not to
damage anything on the other
side of the firewall. Then plug the
starter disable module’s orange
wire into the main system’s
orange wire.
Note: If you drill a hole, use a
rubber grommet to protect the
wire from abrasion.
9. Use a wire tie to secure the
starter disable module under the
dashboard.
CONNECTING THE
SYSTEM TO POWER
Warning: We recommend that you
muffle the alarm’s speaker before you
connect the system to power. The
alarm is extremely loud.
To the Starter Disable Module
7. Use the other yellow wire tap-in
to connect the starter disable
module’s red wire to the wire
going to the ignition switch.
Follow these steps to connect the
system to power.
1. Connect the system’s red lead to
your vehicle battery’s positive (+)
terminal.
2. Connect the system’s black lead
to a metal part of the vehicle’s
body that is not insulated from the
main chassis by a plastic part, or
to the battery’s negative (–) terminal. The system says “Thank
you!”

ACTIVATING THE
REMOTE CONTROLS
INSTALLING THE
BACKUP BATTERY
You must train the system to respond
to the supplied remote controls.To activate both remote controls, immediately after applying power, press ARM
TALK on one of the remotes. The system says “System Armed.” Press
ARM TALK again to disarm the system. The system says “System Disarmed.”
A 9-volt battery (not supplied) powers
your alarm if its main power is cut.
Follow these steps to install the battery.
Note: For the best protection and
longest life, we recommend you use
an alkaline battery, such as RadioShack Cat. No. 23-553.
If the system loses power and the
backup battery is dead or not installed, the system stops responding
to both remotes. Simply follow this
procedure again to reactivate them.
Both of the supplied system remotes
share the same remote code, but
your system can learn two remote
codes if you want to add another remote control (Cat. No. 49-845). To
activate a second remote control
code, be sure the system is disarmed, then hold down ARM TALK for
10 seconds. The system says “Thank
You.” Press any button on the new remote to activate it.
1. Slide off the compartment cover.
2. Snap a 9-volt battery onto the
battery contacts.
3. Place the battery in the compartment.
4. Replace the compartment cover.
A new battery powers the alarm for
about 21 hours with no alert, or 15
minutes of continuous alert. The
alarm’s volume is reduced when it is
operating from the battery.
We recommend you replace the battery every 6 months, even if it has not
been used to power the system.

Once you select a location, follow
these steps to mount the system.
MOUNTING THE
SYSTEM
Select a location for your alarm system in the engine compartment. For
the best results, the location should
meet the following conditions.
• All wires should reach their connections without going near moving or hot engine parts.
Note: If necessary, you can
extend the wires using hook-up
wire and butt connectors. Use at
least 18-gauge wire and an insulated wire connector to extend a
wire.
• The mounting location should be
solid and have no mechanisms or
moving parts on its other side.
• For the best remote range, the
mounting location should allow
the system’s yellow antenna wire
to hang straight down. Do not cut
or extend the wire — its length is
optimized for best operation.
1. Hold the system against the
selected location and mark the
locations of the three mounting
holes.
2. Drill 1/8-inch holes at the marked
locations, taking care not to drill
into anything behind the mounting surface.
3. Secure the system to the surface
using the supplied screws.
Note: For the best shock-sensor
operation use all three screws.
• For the loudest siren, the siren
horn should point down toward
the pavement.
• The alarm should not point
straight up, as moisture could collect in the siren horn and damage
the system.
• To prevent water damage, the
system should not be mounted in
a wheel well, directly behind the
radiator grill, or close to the
ground.

INSTALLING THE
STATUS INDICATOR
The status indicator goes inside your
vehicle’s passenger compartment. Either drill a mounting hole in a dash
panel or use the supplied mounting
bracket to hold the indicator. Follow
these steps to install the indicator.
1. Locate an existing wire harness
that goes through your vehicle’s
firewall, and push the indicator
into the passenger compartment
through the existing hole.
bottom of the bracket. Then peel
off the adhesive backing from the
other side of the tape and press
the bracket onto the dash.
If you are mounting the indicator in the dash, drill a 5/16-inch
hole at the desired location.
3. Press the supplied grommet into
the mounting hole from the front
of the surface.
Grommet
Indicator
If you cannot find an existing wire
harness, drill a 1/4-inch hole
through the firewall into the passenger compartment. Then push
the indicator through the hole.
Cautions:
• Before drilling, be sure you can
reach the other side of the
hole.
• Do not drill into any mechanism on the other side of the
firewall.
• Protect the wire by placing a
rubber grommet (not supplied)
in the hole, and route the wire
through the grommet.
4. Press the indicator into the grommet from the back of the surface.
5. Plug the indicator’s harness into
the matching harness on the system.
6. Use the supplied wire tie to
secure the wire out of the way.
7. If you drilled a hole in the firewall,
use silicon sealant (not supplied)
to waterproof the hole.
2. If you are using the supplied
mounting bracket, use denatured alcohol to clean the mounting surface and let the surface
dry completely. Peel the backing
off of one side of the doublesided tape and press it onto the

USING THE ALARM SYSTEM
ARMING THE ALARM
To arm the alarm in the voice
mode, press ARM TALK. The alarm
says “System Armed.”
To arm the system in the chirp
mode, press ARM CHIRP. The alarm
chirps once.
Notes:
• The status indicator flashes when
the system is armed.
• The system ignores currentsensing violations for 40 seconds after it arms.
• The system ignores shock-sensor violations for 8 seconds after
it arms.
• If the valet mode is turned off, the
system arms 60 seconds after
you turn off your vehicle.
Temporarily Reducing the
Shock Sensor’s Sensitivity
If you are parking in a severe weather
situation, near a construction zone, or
near heavy traffic, you can temporarily reduce the system’s shock sensor
sensitivity to help prevent false
alarms. To reduce the sensitivity to
half its normal level, first press ARM
TALK or ARM CHIRP to arm the system in the desired mode. Then, within
2 seconds, press the other ARM button (if you first pressed ARM TALK,
press ARM CHIRP to reduce sensitivity). The alarm says “Thank you.”
To completely turn off the shock sensor, press the other ARM button twice
within 2 seconds of arming. The
alarm says “Thank you” each time
you press the button.
When you disarm and rearm the system, the shock sensor returns to its
previous sensitivity setting.

ALARM VIOLATIONS
Your alarm senses violations by monitoring your vehicle’s electrical system
(current sensing) and by detecting impacts (shock sensing).
An alert sounds immediately if the
current sensor detects an electrical
drain such as occurs when a dome or
trunk light turns on.
The first time the alarm senses an impact that exceeds its sensitivity level,
it says “You are too close to the vehicle. Please, move away” (if armed in
the voice mode) or chirps 3 times (if
armed in the chirp mode). If it senses
another impact within 30 seconds, the
system sounds a full alert.
Note: If an impact is severe, a single
impact can cause a full alert to sound,
without giving a warning.
DISARMING THE
SYSTEM
To disarm the system, press either
ARM TALK or ARM CHIRP. The system confirms that it is disarmed by
saying “System disarmed” or by
beeping twice.
Notes:
• The status indicator is off when
the system is disarmed.
• If the valet mode is turned off, the
system rearms itself after 1
minute if you have not started the
vehicle.
• If the system detected a violation
while you were away, it says “I
was tampered with” or beeps
three times when you disarm it.
USING THE CAR FINDER
When your alarm senses a violation,
it sounds an alert for 30 seconds. If
you armed the system in the voice
mode, it yells “I was tampered with”
and sounds loud tones. If you armed
the system in the chirp mode, the system sounds loud tones. To silence
the alert sooner, press any button.

The car finder helps you find your vehicle in a dark or crowded parking lot.
To use the car finder, with the system
armed, press FINDER. The alarm
chirps 8 times.

SETTING THE SYSTEM’S
OPTIONS
You can adjust the following options:
• Shock Sensor Sensitivity
• Current Sensor (On/Off)
• Valet Mode (On/Off)
Setting the Shock Sensor’s
Sensitivity
The shock sensor’s initial setting is
fine for most situations. To test the
shock sensor, strike your vehicle on
the hood directly over the alarm.
If the shock sensor is too sensitive or
not sensitive enough, follow these
steps to set it to a different level.
1. With the alarm disarmed, hold
down FINDER until the alarm says
“Please adjust sensor now.”
2. Within 2 seconds, strike your
vehicle with as much force as you
want the alarm to respond to. The
alarm responds with “Thank you.”
Any shock equal to or greater
than the setting triggers the alert.
Notes:
Setting the Current Sensor
If your vehicle has electronic accessories that turn on and off automatically while you are away from the
vehicle, the alarm might sound false
alerts. (The system can detect an
electric engine fan, and does not
sound a false alert when the fan
comes on.)
To disable the current sensor so accessories do not trigger an alert, disarm the system. Then hold down
PANIC for about 2 seconds. The system chirps twice.
To re-enable the current sensor, with
the system disarmed, hold down PANIC for about 2 seconds. The system
chirps once.
Notes:
• The current sensor does not
operate for 40 seconds after the
system arms.
• You can also try unplugging or
disconnecting electronic accessories such as radar detectors or
cellular phones when you leave
your vehicle, instead of disabling
the current sensor, to prevent the
false alerts.
• If you do not strike your vehicle
within 2 seconds, the alarm is set
to its highest sensitivity. This
could cause frequent false alerts.
• The shock sensor does not operate for 8 seconds after you arm
the system.

Setting the Valet Mode
(Passive Arming/Disarming)
The valet mode lets you leave your
vehicle for service or with a valet and
not have it arm 60 seconds after you
turn off the engine. The default is for
the valet mode to be on (passive arming is off).
To have your system automatically
arm 60 seconds after you turn off the
engine, hold down ARM CHIRP for
about 10 seconds. The system says
“System Armed.”
To turn on the valet mode (so the system does not passively arm), hold
down ARM CHIRP again for about 10
seconds. The system says “System
Disarmed.”

TROUBLESHOOTING
This section describes some problems you might encounter and gives possible
solutions.
Problem
Frequent false alerts
Possible Solution
• Another accessory is triggering the alarm. Try
turning off current sensing to see if this solves the
problem. If it does, try turning it back on, then
removing other accessories, one by one, until
you find which accessory is triggering the false
alert. If possible, turn off that accessory when you
leave your vehicle. Common problem accessories are cellular phones, radar detectors, and
vehicle self-test systems. If you cannot turn off
the accessory, leave current sensing disabled.
Note: Your alarm can tell the difference between
the vehicle’s electric fan and other accessories,
so the fan does not trigger a false alert if the fan
turns on while the system is armed.
• Your alarm’s electrical connections are not making good contact. Check the connections and, if
necessary, connect the power and ground leads
to the vehicle’s battery terminals.
• The shock sensor is too sensitive. See “Setting
the Shock Sensor’s Sensitivity” on Page 13 to
change the sensor’s setting.
• Loud thunderclaps and heavy machinery can
trigger a false alarm. If you know a thunderstorm
is approaching or that heavy machinery will be
used nearby you can temporarily reduce the
shock sensor’s sensitivity or turn it off entirely.
See “Temporarily Reducing the Shock Sensor’s
Sensitivity” on Page 11.
The alarm is not loud
enough
• The system is operating from its backup battery.
Check all power connections.
• The siren is being muffled by the engine or hood.
Try repositioning the siren so it points to the
pavement.

Problem
Alarm does not operate
Possible Solution
• Check all power connections.
• Check the system’s fuse. If it has blown, see
“Replacing the Fuse” on Page 18.
• Check the remote control’s battery. See “Replacing a Remote Control’s Battery” on Page 18.
Alarm does not sound
when it should
• The shock sensor is not sensitive enough. See
“Setting the Shock Sensor’s Sensitivity” on
Page 13. If you set the shock sensor to its maximum sensitivity and the alarm still does not
sound, confirm that you mounted the alarm on a
solid, metal vehicle part (not on the frame or on
rubber or plastic parts). If necessary, reposition
the alarm for better performance.
• If you have a large vehicle, the shock sensor
might not detect impacts on parts of the vehicle
far from the system. Remember that most thieves
break into your vehicle through one of the front
doors or windows. If you set the system sensitive
enough to detect all impacts, you might experience frequent and annoying false alarms.
• Confirm that you have not accidently disabled
current sensing. See “Setting the Current Sensor” on Page 13.
The remote control’s
range is poor
• The antenna wire is too close to metal. If possible, position the yellow antenna wire away from
metal.
• The antenna wire has been cut or extended. The
antenna wire is factory tuned for the best performance (a longer antenna actually does not work
as well as the short included antenna wire). If the
wire has been cut, take the system to your local
RadioShack store for repair service.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Your RadioShack RS-3000 Auto Security Alarm System is an example of superior design and craftsmanship. The following suggestions will help you care for
the alarm so you can enjoy its protection for years.
Keep the remote controls dry. If they get wet, wipe them dry immediately. Liquids can contain minerals that might corrode the
electronic circuits.
Handle the alarm and remotes gently and carefully. Dropping
them can damage circuit boards and cases and might make the
remotes work improperly.
Use and store the remote controls only in normal temperature environments. Temperature extremes can shorten the life of electronic devices, damage batteries, and distort or melt plastic parts.
Keep the remote controls away from dust and dirt, which can
cause premature wear of parts.
CLEANER
Do not use harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, or strong detergents to clean the alarm.
Use only fresh batteries of the recommended size and type in
your alarm and remote controls. Old or weak batteries can leak
chemicals that can damage your system’s internal circuits.
Modifying or tampering with your alarm’s internal components can cause a malfunction and might invalidate the alarm’s warranty and void your FCC authorization to operate it. If your alarm is not operating as it should, take it to your local
RadioShack store for assistance.

REPLACING THE FUSE
Follow these steps to check the system’s fuse and replace it if it has
blown. The system uses a 5-amp 11/4
× 1/4-inch fast-acting fuse (Cat. No.
270-1011).
REPLACING A REMOTE
CONTROL’S BATTERY
If your remote control’s range is reduced or if the indicator does not light
when you press a button, replace its
battery. Each remote control uses a
12-volt remote control battery (Cat.
No. 23-144). Follow these steps to replace the battery.
1. Push together the two halves of
the inline fuse holder (on the red
power wire) and twist them to
separate the halves.
2. Inspect the fuse. If the wire is broken or not there, replace it.
Caution: Use only a fuse of the
same type and rating. Using a different type of fuse or bypassing
the fuse protection can damage
your alarm or your vehicle’s electrical system.
3. Put the new fuse in the holder
and push and twist the holder’s
halves together.
1. Snap apart the remote control’s
case.
Caution: Take care not to lose
any of the remote control’s
pieces.
2. Replace the battery with a new
one.
3. Put all parts back in place and
snap the case halves back
together.
