This Remote Start/Alarm System is designed to be used with Automatic Transmission- Fuel Injection
Gas or Diesel Vehicles Only!
INSTALLATION OF THE MAJOR COMPONENTS:
CONTROL MODULE:
PART # 1365030
Select a mounting location inside the passenger compartment (up behind the dashboard). The mounting
location selected must be within 24" of the ignition switch wiring harness to allow connection of the 6 pin
main wiring harness. Be certain that the chosen location will not interfere with proper operation of the
vehicle. Avoid mounting the module to or routing the wiring around the steering shaft/column, as the
module or wiring may wrap around or block the steering wheel preventing proper control of the vehicle. The
module will be secured after all wiring is completed which will allow complete access until the job is done.
Do Not Mount The Module In The Engine Compartment, as it is not waterproof.
SIREN:
PART # AS9903
Select a location in the engine compartment that is not accessible from below the vehicle. The selected
location must be clear of hot or moving parts within the engine compartment. The siren must be pointed
downward to prevent water retention and the open or flared end must be pointed away from and out of the
engine compartment for maximum sound distribution. Before securing the siren, check behind your chosen location to assure that the mounting screws will not penetrate any factory wiring or fluid lines. Secure
the siren mounting bracket using #8 self taping screws.
HOOD PIN SWITCH:
PART # 1363699
The pin switch included in this package is intended for protecting the hood area of the vehicle. In all cases,
the switch must be mounted to a grounded metal surface. When the pin switch is activated, (hood open),
it will supply a ground to the input wire activating the alarm. In addition, the hood switch is required for the
safety shut down of the remote start unit. If the vehicle is being worked on, this hood switch prevents the
remote start activation even if the RF command to start is issued. This switch must be installed in all
applications. Failure to do so may result in personal injury or property damage.
THE PUSH-BUTTON PROGRAM SWITCH/LED/RECEIVER/ANTENNA ASSEMBLY: PART #1181202
The Superheterodyne Receiver Antenna Assembly provided with this unit allows routing from below the
dash board for maximum operating range. Choose a location above the belt line (dashboard) of the vehicle
for best reception. Special considerations must be made for windshield glass as some newer vehicles
utilize a metallic shielded window glass that will inhibit or restrict RF reception. In these vehicles, route the
antenna toward a rear window location for best reception. Secure the antenna with double stick tape
provided.
SHOCK SENSOR:
PART # AS9492a
Select a centrally located, solid mounting surface for the shock sensor that will allow consistent operation
from all areas of the vehicle. The selected location must be within 18" of the control module to allow routing
and connecting of the 4 pin harness. Secure the shock sensor to the chosen location using two #8 self
tapping sheet metal screws. The sensor can also be secured to an existing dash brace using cable tie
straps. Whichever mounting method is used be sure to allow access to the sensitivity adjustment potentiometer for use later in the installation.
STARTER INHIBIT RELAY:
PART # 1363731
Select a mounting location within 12" of the ignition switch's low current start solenoid wire. Secure the
relay to an existing harness in the chosen location using a cable tie around the relay's wiring harness.
CAUTION! Do not wire tie the metal bracket to an existing wiring harness as vibration may cause
chaffing and shorting damaging the factory wiring. If an existing harness is not available then
secure the relay's metal mounting tab to an under dash metal brace with a #8 self tapping
sheet metal screw. Wire the relay as per the diagram found later in this manual.
This unit is to be used in vehicles with AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS only! Although this combination
Alarm/Remote Start unit is a sophisticated system with many advanced features, IT MUST NOT be
installed into a vehicle with a manually operated transmission. Doing so may result in serious personal
injury and property damage.

For Diesel Applications, this wire must be connected to the ignition circuit that powers the glow plugs if the
vehicle requires glow plug pre-heating. (See selectable feature Bank 3 #11)
3 Fused RED WIRE: + 12 Volt Battery 2 Source
Locate the vehicle battery wire(s) at the ignition switch. Verification: These wires will register voltage in all
positions of the ignition switch. Connect the Red wire to the vehicle's battery wire. This wire provides power for
the start relay and the accessory relay.
4 Fused RED/WHITE WIRE: + 12 volt Battery 1 Source
Locate the vehicle battery wire(s) at the ignition switch. Verification: These wires will register voltage in all
positions of the ignition switch. Connect the Red w/White wire to the vehicle's battery wire. This wire provides
power for the control circuit as well as the ignition 1 and ignition 2 relays.
5 YELLOW Wire: Starter Output
Careful consideration for the connection of this wire must be made to prevent the vehicle from
starting while in gear. Understanding the difference between a mechanical and an electrical
Neutral Start Switch will allow you to properly identify the circuit and select the correct installation method. In addition you will realize why the connection of the safety wire is required for
all mechanical switch configurations.
Failure to make this connection properly can result in personal injury and property damage.
In all installations it is the responsibility of the installing technician to test the remote start unit and ensure
that the vehicle cannot start via RF control in any gear selection other than park or neutral.
In both mechanical and electrical neutral start switch configurations, the connection of the Yellow wire will
be made to the low current start solenoid wire of the ignition switch harness. This wire will have +12 volts
when the ignition switch is turned to the start (crank) position only. This wire will have 0 volts in all other
ignition switch positions.
NOTE: This wire must be connected to the vehicle side of the starter cut relay (when used). For the
electrical neutral switch configuration, this connection must be made between the starter inhibit
relay, ( when used ) and the neutral safety switch as shown in the following diagram.
Failure to connect this wire to the ignition switch side of the of the neutral safety switch can result
in personal injury and property damage.

the vehicle parking brake is applied whenever the vehicle is set up for and the turbo timer circuit is used. This
input must switch to ground when the vehicle's parking brake is applied. Connect the Orange/Black wire to
the negative output of the vehicle's parking brake switch.
2 N/C
This cavity of the connector is empty.
3 RED/BLACK Wire: + 12 Volts Input
NOTE: The Red/Black and Pink are dry contacts and may be used for negative switching when necessary.
Connecting the Red/Black to chassis ground will result in Pink being ground when the R/S is activated.
This input is to be connected to a separate, (other than the wire Red or Red/White is connected to), constant
on + 12 volt source which will supply + 12 volt power to the additional ignition output, (Pink), wire. Connect
this wire to a separate + 12 Volt source.
4 PINK Wire: Additional Ignition Output
This wire can be used as an additional + 12 Volt ignition output supplied by the Red/Black wire. This output
can be selected to be on or off during the start cycle. (See feature bank 3 selection # 8.) Connect this wire

WIRING CONNECTIONS: 18 Pin Accessory Input/Output Harness
PART # 1123305
1 Black w/ White Trace Wire : 300 mA Horn Output
The black w/ white trace wire is provided to beep the vehicle’s horn. This is a transistorized low current
output, and should only be connected to the low current ground output from the vehicle’s horn switch.
If the vehicle uses a + 12 VDC horn switch, then connect the black w/ white trace wire to terminal 86 of the
AS 9256 relay ( or an equivalent 30 Amp automotive relay ), and connect relay terminal 85 to a fused
+ 12 VDC battery source. Connect relay terminal 87 to the vehicle’s horn switch output, and connect relay
terminal 30 to a fused + 12 VDC battery source.
2 Green w/ White trace Wire: Entry Illumination Ground Output
This wire provides a 30 second ground output, (300 mA Max.), whenever the remote is used to disarm
the alarm or to unlock the doors. It also provides a continuous pulsed output whenever the alarm is
triggered. This wire should be connected to an external relay and wired to the vehicle's interior entry
lighting circuit whenever the optional Entry Interior Illumination feature is desired. See below for relay
wiring details.
3 Light Blue Wire: Ground Output While Running (-) 300mA
This wire provides a 300mA ground output that becomes active 3 seconds before the Remote Start Unit
initializes and remains grounded while running plus an additional 4 seconds after the Remote Start Unit
turns off. In all of the applications described below, a relay will be required.
The Light Blue wire can be used to accommodate the following situations:
A. Sensor By Pass:
If there is a Non Plug in Sensor used with the alarm system and it is not shunted during the Remote
Start activation period, then vibration or noise from the running vehicle can cause the alarm to trigger. In
this case, connect the Light Blue Wire to terminal #86 of a external relay. Connect terminal # 85 of the
relay to a fused + 12 volt battery source. Cut the sensor's trigger wire and connect one end of the cut
wire to terminal #30 and the other end of the cut wire to terminal #87a. Just before the Remote Start unit
is activated, the relay contacts will open, preventing the sensor's operation until the Remote Start unit
shuts off.
B. Additional Ignition Output:
Some vehicle's may require more than three ignition outputs to start and keep the vehicle's engine
running. If this is the case, connect the Light Blue wire to terminal #86 of an external relay. Connect
terminal # 85 to a fused + 12 volt source. Dependent on the vehicle's requirement, connect terminal
#30, to a fused + 12 volt source, or to ground, and connect terminal 87 to the vehicle to supply the
additional ignition source.
C. GM VATS Key Override:
If the vehicle has the General Motors VATS system installed, you will need to bypass the system while
the vehicle is operating under the control of the Remote Start Unit. To Do This:
1. Measure the resistance of the resistor pellet on the ignition key then select a resistor within 5% of
the key's value from the resistor pack supplied.
2. Locate the pair of VATS wires in the vehicle, usually a pair of thin gauge wires running from the
ignition switch to the VATS control module.
NOTE: These wires are typically White w/ Black trace and Violet w/ Yellow trace, however in later model
Cadillacs, they are run through an orange sleeve, and are either both Black, both Yellow, or both
White wires. Consult the factory service manual for additional information.
3. Connect the Light Blue Wire from the Remote Start Unit to terminal #86 of an external relay.
Connect terminal #85 of the relay to a fused + 12 volt battery source.

4. Cut (#1) wire (as shown), and connect the ignition switch side of the cut wire to terminal #87a of the
relay. Connect the other side of the (#1) wire to terminal #30.
5. Connect the previously selected resistor from terminal #87 to the second (#2) wire (as shown).
NOTE: The above information and following diagram is for the GM VATS system only.
D. Anti-Grind Starter Circuit Connection:
This wire, when connected to a starter inhibit relay, as shown in the diagram below, will prevent the
customer from engaging the starter while the vehicle is running under control of the remote start.
Configured in this way, while the remote start is controlling the vehicle, the light blue wire has ground on
it all the time. This ground will cause the relay to energize preventing current flow through the normally
closed contacts. This will prevent a customer who inadvertently turns the ignition switch to the start
position, from sending current to the starter.
4 Dark Green Wire: (-) Instant Trigger Input
The Dark Green wire is the instant on ground trigger input wire. This wire must be connected to the hood pin
switch previously installed, and the trunk pin switch where used.
NOTE: This wire will be shunted when remote control channel 3 is accessed, (trunk release). This wire will
remain shunted all the while there is ground present and for 5 seconds after the ground is removed.
This allows the operator to open the trunk via the remote transmitter without having to first disarm
the alarm system.
5 Dark Blue/Black Trace Wire: External Trigger Input
The Dark Blue/Black trace wire allows the remote start unit to be activated from an external source. The
intent of this wire is to allow the unit to be controlled from a "POSSE/CAR-LINK" paging system or similar
device. When this wire receives a ground pulse, the unit will start the vehicle. Connect this wire to a ground
pulsed output from the controlling circuit.

6 White w/ Black Trace Wire: (+) Siren Output
This is the positive siren feed wire. Route this wire through a grommet in the firewall to the siren location.
Connect the White w/ Black Trace wire to the Red wire of the Siren. Secure the Black wire of the Siren to a
known chassis ground or solid clean metal surface.
7 Green w/ Orange Trace Wire: Tachometer Input Signal
This wire will continually monitor the engine's tach rate while the unit is under power of the Remote Start
module. This wire will be routed to the vehicle ECM tach input or through the firewall into the engine compartment and connect to the negative side of the ignition coil. This Remote Start unit learns the tach rate of the
vehicle and in most cases will operate properly from one multi coil pack regardless of the number of cylinders. If the vehicle has a single coil unit for each cylinder, it may be necessary to connect this wire to more
than one cylinder for proper tach reference. See Multi Coil Pack Adaptor wiring detail shown later in this
manual for additional information.
NOTE: For Hybrid mode selection, Bank 3 feature selection 5, this connection is not required, the unit will
start the vehicle and run the allotted time based on feature selection and crank duration.
8 White w/ Red Trace Wire: Parking Light Flasher Input
This wire is the common contact of the on board parking light flasher relay. If the vehicle you are working on
has +12 volt switched parking lights, connect this wire to a fused + 12 volt source. (Max. 15 Amps)
NOTE: If the vehicle's parking lights are ground switched, connect this wire to chassis ground.
Parking Light Wiring Detail

128-8787b
10 of 32
9 White Wire: Parking Light Flasher Output
This wire is the normally open contact of the on board parking light flash relay. Connect this wire to the
vehicle's parking light feed wire. This is the wire that gets switched on, either (+) or (-), when the vehicle's
parking light switch is activated.
10 Green/Yellow Wire: Diesel Wait To Start Input
The green/yellow wire, when connected to the wire that get + 12 volts during the glow plug preheat stage will
delay the starter output until this wire drops the 12 volts. In other words, in a Diesel vehicle with glow plug
preheat circuit, when the ignition is turned on, the vehicle will not crank until the glow plugs are hot enough
to fire the atomized fuel oil when injected into the cylinder. By connecting this wire to the glow plug + 12 volt
wire, when the remote start unit activates the ignition one output, the glow plug output also activates. The
remote start sees the green/yellow with positive voltage and waits for this to go inactive( drop the 12 volts)
before activating the starter motor. If this wire is not used or you have difficulty accessing the glow plug
preheat circuit, you may elect to utilize the Diesel timed output as specified in Remote Start feature selection #9.
NOTE: If green/yellow is used, it will override or negate any setting of feature #9.
11 Green w/ Black Trace Wire: 300mA Pulsed Channel 4 Output
The Green w/ Black Trace wire supplies a 300 mA switched output whenever channel four of the receiver is
accessed. Pressing the pre-programmed transmitter button(s) will provide a 1 second pulse to channel four
This is a low current output and must be connected to a relay to supply power to the device you intend to
control. Connect Green w/ Black Trace wire to terminal #86 of a 30 amp automotive relay. Connect terminal
#85 of the relay to a fused + 12 volt source. Connect the common, normally open, and normally closed
contacts of the relay to perform the selected function of the channel 4 output.
NOTE: This wire also can be used for defrost activation as dictated by the setting of feature # 1 of Bank 3.
Anytime the vehicle is running under control of the Remote Start and Channel 4 is activated, then
dependent on the selection of this feature, Green/Black will be activated for a 1 second pulse, or for
10 minutes.
NOTE: This wire will, as a defrost output, only operate when running under control of the remote start, it will
not operate when the vehicle is running under the control of the ignition key.
When the key & remote start are off, the output will operate as indicated above.
12 Dark Blue Wire: 300mA Pulsed Channel 3 Output (Trunk)
The Dark Blue wire supplies a 300mA ground pulsed output whenever channel three of the receiver is
accessed. Pressing the pre-programmed transmitter button for three seconds will access channel three.
This is a low current output and must be connected to a relay to supply power to the trunk release or the
circuit you wish to control. Connect the Dark Blue wire to terminal # 86 of a 30 amp automitive relay
Connect terminal # 85 of the relay to a fused + 12 volt source. Connect the common, normally open, and
normally closed contacts of the relay to perform the selected function of channel 3.
13 Brown Wire: (-) Negative Door Trigger
If the vehicle's door courtesy light switches ground when the door is opened, (most GMs and imports), you
must connect this wire to the negative output from one of the vehicle's door pin switches. In most cases the
Brown wire will need to be connected to only one door switch no matter how many doors the vehicle has as
most door lighting circuits are wired in parallel. This wire will be shunted when remote starting the vehicle
and will remain shunted, if active, while running under command of the remote start. If this wire is active
11
128-8787b
11 of 32
when the system is armed, the siren will emit three chirps. When the zone clears, the siren will emit 1 chirp
to confirm full arming.
NOTE: For vehicles with interior delay lighting see programming under title "Completing The Installation".
14 Purple Wire: (+) Door Trigger Input
If the vehicle's door courtesy light switches + 12 volts when the door is opened, (some Fords and some
imports), you must connect this wire to the positive output from one of the vehicle's door pin switches. In
most cases, the Purple wire will need to be connected to only one door switch no matter how many doors
the vehicle has as most door lighting circuits are wired in parallel. This wire will be shunted when remote
starting the vehicle and will remain shunted, if active, while running under command of the remote start. If
this wire is active when the system is armed, the siren will emit three chirps. When the zone clears, the
siren will emit 1 chirp to confirm full arming.
NOTE: For vehicles with interior delay lighting see programming under title "Completing The Installation".
15 Black Wire: Chassis Ground Source
Connect the Black wire to a known vehicle ground source or to a solid clean metal part of the chassis. Be
certain to remove any paint or grease and secure this wire with a self tapping screw and ring terminal.
16 Brown w/ Black Trace Wire: Positive Inhibit Input Plus Trigger When Armed
The Brown w/ Black Trace wire provides an instant shutdown for the Remote Start Control module whenever
it gets + 12 volts also triggers the alarm when armed. If the Brake lights switch in the vehicle switches + 12
volts to the brake light circuit, connect the Brown w/ Black trace wire to the output side of the brake switch.
This will allow the Remote Start to shut down if an attempt is made to operate the vehicle without the key
while running under the control of the Remote Start. In most vehicles, in order to shift into gear, the brake
pedal must be depressed. The brake input will in turn cause the remote start unit to shut off.
17 Orange Wire: 300mA (-) Ground When Armed Output
This wire provides a 300 mA ground output when the alarm circuit is armed to control the starter inhibit
relay. Connect the Orange wire to terminal #86 (orange wire) of the relay provided. Connect terminal #85
(red wire) of the relay to an ignition wire in the vehicle that is +12 volts when the ignition switch is turned
to the on and start positions and off when the key is off. Locate and cut the low current start solenoid wire
found at the vehicles ignition switch harness. This wire will have + 12 volts when the ignition key is moved
to the start (crank) position and will have 0 volts in all other key positions. Connect one side of the cut
wire to terminal #87a ( Black wire) of the relay. Connect the other side of the cut wire to terminal #30
(White/Black wire) of the relay. See the wiring detail below, also see Yellow Start wire detail for connection to vehicle considerations.
18 Grey w/ Black Trace Wire: Negative Inhibit Input / Trigger When Armed
The Grey w/ Black Trace wire provides an instant shutdown for the Remote Start Control Module whenever it
is grounded. This wire also trigger the alarm when armed. Connect the Grey w/ Black trace wire to the hood

pin switch previously installed. This wire must be routed through a grommet in the firewall and connected to
the hood pin switch. If connecting to a factory hood pin switch, it is recommended that a double diode circuit
be used to prevent feed back of one device to the other.
IMPORTANT! This connection is a safety wire and must be connected as shown and tested as specified.
Failure to do so may result in personal injury or property damage. See the wiring detail in the following
diagram. This wire may also be used if the vehicle brake light circuit switches ground to the brake lights. An
isolation diode must be used for ground switched brake light circuits and must be connected to the output
of the brake switch.

WIRING THE 4 PIN AUXILIARY OUTPUT HARNESS
Part #1122585
The auxiliary 4 pin connector provides low current outputs to control various functions in the vehicle during
different stages of the Remote Start unit's operation. Understanding these outputs and the time in which they
occur will allow you to determine if they are needed for the particular vehicle you are working on as well as
how to use them.
1 Black w Blue Trace Wire: Pulsed Ground Output Before Start
The Black w/ Blue Trace wire will provide a 1 second 300 mA pulsed ground output 1.5 second before the
remote start unit activates as well as when the transmitter is used to disarm the system. Typical use for this
output would be to disarm a factory theft deterrent system to prevent false triggering of the factory alarm
when the remote start unit engages or when the system is used to unlock the doors. This will also activate
when the transmitter is used to disarm/unlock the system
NOTE: This output can be selected to operate like the door lock output as set in alarm feature setting #1 by
selecting feature #17 in Bank 3 for 2 Chirps.
2 Black w/ Light Green Trace Wire: Pulsed Ground Output After Start
The Black w/ Light Green Trace wire will provide a 1 second 300mA pulsed ground output after the vehicle is
started under control of the remote start unit. Typically this wire will be used to re-lock the vehicle doors if the
doors unlock automatically when the factory anti-theft system is disarmed. This wire will also activate when
the transmitter is used to arm/lock the system.
3 Black w/ Red Trace Wire: Pulsed Ground Output After Shutdown
The Black w/ Red Trace wire will provide a 1 second 300 mA pulsed ground output after the remote start unit
shuts down. This output will occur regardless of whether the circuit times out or is manually terminated.
Typically this output will be used to re-lock the vehicle doors if the doors unlock automatically when the
ignition circuit transitions to off.
4 Black w/ Yellow Trace Wire: Ground Output During Start (Crank)
The Black w/ Yellow Trace wire will provide a 300 mA ground output while the starter output of the remote
start unit is active. This output can be used to activate the Crank Low/Bulb Test wire found in some GM
vehicles. This wire is also referred to as the ECM wake up wire in some vehicles.
NOTE: The outputs above are low current outputs and must be used with a relay if the circuit's requirement
is more than 300 mA.
2 Pin Transponder Control Output: (Yellow Connector)
Part # 1123292
a. When selected for while remote start on, the Black wire will be active at the same time ign. 3 becomes
active, and will remain active all the time the unit is operational under the control of the remote start.
b. When selected for output during the start sequence, the Black wire will be active at the same time Ign.
3 becomes active, and will remain active until the vehicle has started. This will be used for one time
read transponder circuits.
c. When the unit is selected for until ignition off, the Black wire will become active at the same time ign. 3
becomes active and will remain active even after the key take over and until the ignition in the vehicle is
turned off. This will allow the unit to be used for continuous read transponders circuits.
16
128-8787b

Red = + 5 Volts / Black = Ground / White = Data TX / Yellow = Data RX
Connect the 4 pin harness found in the Telematic one way or CArlink II kits to the mating port on the
controlling circuit.
NOTE: If using the TWO WAY Telematic module, only Ground, TX, and RX are used on this port, the + 12
volt supply for the two way module must be sourced separately or the unit will not operate.
5 Wire Antenna/Receiver Program Push-Button Switch/LED Connector:
Part # 1123905
Plug the previously routed antenna connector from the antenna receiver assemble into the mating connector
of the control module. This connector supplies 12 volts, ground and RF data input and output, LED cathode,
and Valet Enable to and from the antenna receiver and the remote start module. Be certain this connector
is firmly seated making good contact to the control unit.
4 Pin Shock Sensor: (White Connector)
Part # 1122591
The Red (+12 volt), Black (ground), Blue (pre-detect) and Green (full trigger when armed) wires loaded into
the white connector shell are the inputs/outputs of the shock sensor. Route the 4 wire harness from the
shock sensor to the remote start control unit and plug the 4 pin white connector into the mating 4 pin
connector shell of the control module.
NOTE: While operating under the control of the remote start unit the shock sensor will be shunted (by
passed). Once the remote start shuts down, the shock sensor will be re-enabled.
4 PIN IN VEHICLE DATA BUS PORT (DBI Port)
(Connector Port)
The 4 pin port located on the side of this module is for proprietary Audiovox data bus interface modules.
These modules are used to access a variety of features in the vehicle which can be as simple as door trigger
inputs, to more complex door locks outputs, or transponder interfaces for remote starting. DO NOT connect
anything to this port other than the Audiovox IDB modules or damage to the Remote Start module will occur.
All installation instructions for the IDB modules will be packaged with the individual component along with
the proper 4 pin wiring harness requires to access the data transmit & receive as well as the proper voltage
levels for the interface.
TIMED START PROGRAM:
The Remote Start unit has the ability to start the vehicle automatically at timed intervals. This feature is
useful in extremely cold climates where starting the engine is the only means to keep the battery charged
17
128-8787b
17 of 32
and fluids warm. The operator has the option to have the unit start every 2 or 4 hours for a maximum of 48
hours. Factory preset is to start at 4 hour intervals. To select 2 or 4 hour automatic start timer:
1. Start By Holding the Push Button Switch found on the windshield mount receiver on.
2. While Holding the Push Button Switch Turn The Ignition Switch On Then Off
3a. Within 10 seconds of turning the ignition switch off, Release and then Push On and release the Push

change, the above sequence will have to be followed.
TIMED START OPERATION:
To begin the start timer, within 10 seconds of turning off the ignition switch, activate the RF command to start
2 times. (Press the start button four times). The lights will flash and the siren will chirp 4 times, indicating the
timed interval mode has been initiated. The vehicle will automatically start every 2 or 4 hours as programmed.
To cancel the timed start mode start the vehicle either by RF or by the ignition key.
DIESEL ENGINE SETTINGS:
NOTE: When selecting Diesel operation, (Bank 3 Feature #11), over gasoline, the only change is to the
ignition circuits. When Diesel is selected, the ignition circuits will power up 10, 15, or 20 seconds before
the start circuit. The intent of this feature is to allow the glow plug warming required by some diesel
engines. If your vehicle is a instant start diesel, it is not necessary to activate this feature.
ALSO: When selecting Diesel mode, be certain that the intended vehicle has a true tach reference and be
certain to connect the tach input wire. Also note, if the "Diesel Wait to Start" input is connected,
(Green/Yellow) this wire will take precedence over the Diesel selection of bank 3 feature 11.
Monitoring The Vehicle's Engine:
(Program Feature #5 Bank 3)
There are 4 ways that the remote start monitors the engine running, one or the other must be selected for
your application for the remote start to operate correctly.
1) VOLTAGE SENSE SETTING:
The unit will monitor the voltage level of the battery during remote start, wait for the voltage to drop while
cranking, then look for the voltage level to go above the level it was before the vehicle began to crank which
indicates the vehicle is running. Feature #14 of Bank 3 must be set for preset time or the voltage sense
feature will not operate indicated by the parking lights flashing 7 times.
2) TACH RATE SETTING:
1. Turn the ignition key to the On position.
2. Press and release the valet/program push button switch 3 times.
3. Immediately turn the ignition key Off.
4. Press and hold the valet/program push button switch, then start the vehicle using the key.
5. When the unit senses the tach signal, the parking lights will begin to flash.
6. Release the valet/program pushbutton switch. The parking lights will turn on for three seconds to indicate
that the learned tach signal is stored and the unit is out of the tach learn mode.
NOTE: If the unit fails to learn tach rate due to an improper tachometer connection or a poor tach source, the
parking lights will not flash. To correct this situation, locate and connect the Green/Orange wire to
the proper tach signal, and then repeat the tach learn routine.
18
128-8787b
18 of 32
3) DBI TACH SETTING
Selecting this setting in the option menu indicates that you have a DBI module and have determined that a
tach signal is available for the vehicle you are connecting to. The unit will look at the DBI data port for the
tach signal. If the vehicle fails to start, or the unit flashes 7 times, recheck the DBI manual to insure that tach
is available for your vehicle. If not the tach connection wire, Green/Orange must be used.
4) HYBRID SETTING:
Selecting this setting in the option menu allows for Hybrid vehicles. Also feature #14 of Bank 3 must be set
for preset time or the Hybrid feature will not operate indicated by the parking lights flashing 7 times.
CRANK AVERAGING:
When Feature 14 Bank 3 is set for crank averaging, the remote start unit constantly monitors and learns the
cranking patterns of the vehicle each time the car is started with the key. The vehicle must be started at
least 4 times with the key for the crank averaging circuit to begin it's monitoring the vehicle's engine.
DIAGNOSTICS:
Enter Bank 3 and turn on selectable feature # 9 as described on the front pages of this manual.
NOTE: Diagnostic mode is a temporary mode. Once you have accessed the diagnostic mode, the unit will
pause for two seconds then begin to flash the last stored shut down code. This code will be displayed three

Multi Coil Pack Adaptor: (Optional)
The multi coil pack adapter, is designed for use with vehicles that do not respond to single coil tach
programming. Although the tach resolution of this circuit is designed to interface direct with most vehicles,
there may be an occasion where the following circuit may be required. Construct the adaptor as shown
below.
To use the adaptor, the Green/Black wires must connect to the negative side of the ignition coil(s).
1. For vehicles utilizing independent coils per cylinder, connect the three Green/Black leads to alternate
coils. To achieve optimum performance the coil signals must be evenly distributed. This is accomplished
by first mapping out the firing order of the engine in groups of as indicated below. Draw a circle around
any of the columns. The Green/Black wires should be connected to the negative (-) terminal of the
respective cylinder number which appears in any of the circles.
2. For vehicles utilizing 2 cylinder firing per coil pack, connect Green/Black to the tach side of each coil
pack. For 8 cylinder, four coil systems, connect to any of the three coils.
3. Connect the Yellow wire to a +12 volt ignition 1 source. This wire will have +12 volts with the ignition in the
on and start position and have 0 volts with the ignition in the off position.
4. Connect the Green wire to the (Green) or (Orange/Green) tach input of the Audiovox remote start unit.

TESTING YOUR INSTALLATION:
WARNING!! The following procedure must be performed after the installation of any Remote Start Device. It
is the responsibility of the installing technician to complete these tests. Failure to test the
unit in the following manner may result in personal injury, property damage, or both.
HOOD PIN SAFETY SHUT DOWN:
The intent of the hood pin safety shut down is to prevent the Remote Start unit from being activated while a
mechanic or vehicle owner is performing normal routine vehicle maintenance.
To test the integrity of this circuit:
1. With the drivers window in the down position, start the vehicle using the RF transmitter.
2. Reach inside the car and pull the hood release.
3. Raise the hood and confirm that the remote start unit shuts down.
If the unit fails this test, recheck your pin switch connection to the Gray/Black wire of the Remote Start Unit.
DO NOT RELEASE THIS VEHICLE TO THE CONSUMER UNTIL YOU CONFIRM THE
OPERATION OF THE HOOD PIN SAFETY SHUT DOWN FEATURE.
REMOTE START OVERRIDE MODE / MANUAL SHUT DOWN:
The intent of the remote start override / manual shut down circuit is to allow the vehicle operator to prevent
operation of the Remote Start Unit regardless of the RF transmitter operation.
To Enter The Remote Start Override Mode:
1. With the system disarmed/unlocked, and the ignition switch off Press and Hold the pushbutton switch
located on the receiver unit on.
2. Turn the ignition switch on, off, on, off, on, off.
3. The LED begins to flash two short flashes followed by one long flashes and continues this pattern until
returned to normal mode of operation.
The action above puts the unit into the Remote Start Override mode or vehicle service mode and will not
start from the RF transmitter or any other input.
20
128-8787b
20 of 32
To Exit Remote Start Override Mode:
1. With the system disarmed, Press and Hold the PBLED on.
2. Turn the ignition switch on, off, on, off, on, off.
3. The LED turns off indicating that the R/S unit is fully functional one again.
DO NOT RELEASE THIS VEHICLE TO THE CONSUMER UNTIL YOU CONFIRM THE
OPERATION OF THE MANUAL SHUT DOWN / ENABLE FEATURE.
NEUTRAL START SAFETY TEST:
The intent of the neutral start switch is to prevent the vehicle from starting while the gear selector is in any
position other than Park, or Neutral. When installing a Remote Start Device, it is imperative that the Yellow
Starter wire be connected to the ignition switch side of the Neutral Start Switch. Consideration for the
placement of a starter inhibit relay is important as well and should be connected to the ignition switch side
of the Yellow Start Wire.
To test the integrity of the Neutral Start Safety Circuit:
1. Set the vehicle parking brake.
2. Block the drive wheels to prevent vehicle movement.
3. Temporarily disconnect the Brown/Black positive shut down wire from the vehicle's brake switch.
4. Sitting in the vehicle, start the engine using the vehicle's ignition key.
5. Step on the brake pedal and shift the gear selector into reverse.
6. Allow the transmission to shift. When you feel the engine pull, do not move the gear selector just turn
the ignition switch off. DO NOT attempt to remove the key.
7. Keeping the brake pedal depressed, activate the RF transmitter in an attempt to start the vehicle. The
car should not start.
8. Repeat the above test this time move the gear selector to the drive position.
If the unit attempts to start, failing this test, recheck your Yellow Wire's connection.This wire must be
connected to the ignition switch side of the Neutral Start Switch. If the vehicle you are working on does
not have an Electrical Neutral Safety Switch, it will be necessary to reconfigure the Remote Starts Wiring
to accommodate the vehicle. The information concerning the Mechanical Neutral Safety Switch provided
below will help you to determine if the vehicle you are working on has this type of safety switch and will
provide alternate wiring methods to accommodate this situation.
21

CAUTION! REMEMBER TO RECONNECT THE BROWN/BLACK NEUTRAL SAFETY WIRE
TEMPORARILY DISCONNECTED IN STEP 3
MECHANICAL NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH CONSIDERATIONS:
Mechanical neutral safety switch configurations differ slightly in that they do not offer the same level of safety
when installing a remote start device. Often when the ignition switch is turned off while the gear selector is
in any position other than park or neutral, the mechanical function will not allow the key to be turned to the
start position or be removed from the ignition cylinder. This configuration prevents mechanical operation
while the vehicle is in gear but offers no consideration for electrical operation. Because of this potential
problem, this installation requires the additional connection of a safety wire from the remote start device to
the vehicle Park/Neutral ECM Input or the vehicle key in sensor. This connection will prevent remote start
operation if the key is left in the ignition switch regardless of the gear selectors position.
DO NOT RELEASE THIS VEHICLE TO THE CONSUMER UNTIL YOU CONFIRM THE OPERATION OF
THE MECHANICAL NEUTRAL SAFETY START FEATURE.
KEY IN SENSOR CIRCUITS:
If the vehicle you are working on does not have or you cannot locate the ECM reference wire, there are
two alternatives available. Although not preferred, the vehicle Key In Sensor may be reconfigured to allow
a margin of safety and will prevent the vehicle with a Mechanical Neutral Start Switch from starting in gear.
AUDIOVOX ADVISES THAT YOU MAINTAIN THE FACTORY CIRCUIT WHENEVER POSSIBLE. The
following two circuits may be used only if the above circuit is not available.
NOTE: When completing an installation using either of the following key in sensor circuits, if the operator
inserts the ignition key while the vehicle is running under the control of the Remote Start, the
vehicle will shut down. This must be explained to the operator as it is in contrast to the normal
operation of a vehicle utilizing an electrical neutral start switch and is inconsistent with the
operator's manual.
Additional information concerning Key In Sensor methods 1 & 2 are listed below and should be reviewed
before considering either alternative.
Method 1 will allow the safety required for the remote start unit and prevent the vehicle from starting while
in any gear other than Park or Neutral while the key is in the ignition cylinder however, if the key is left in
the ignition switch and the door is left opened, the added relay will be energized causing a 150mA drain
on the battery.
Method 2 will allow the safety required for the remote start unit and prevent the vehicle from starting while
in any gear other than Park or Neutral while the key is in the ignition cylinder however, the original factory
key in chime module will not alert the owner that the key has been left in the ignition switch. In addition,
this may also effect other warning tones such as the light on reminder.
These situations should be carefully considered before altering the vehicle's wiring and must be fully
explained to the consumer.

DOME DELAY LEARN FEATURE:
This unit has the ability to learn the dome light delay time, up to 60 seconds. If the vehicle has delay
interior lights, and you wish to avoid three chirp, defect zone, indication normally associated with this
type of interior light, we suggest you learn the interior light delay.
To learn the light delay, start with all doors closed:
1. Use the transmitter to Lock / Unlock / Lock / Unlock / Lock / Unlock / Lock, the system.
The LED turns on solid to confirm the system entered the learn mode.
2. Immediately open and close the door of the vehicle to initiate the dome delay.
The unit will monitor the door trigger input Positive, (Purple), and Negative, (Brown) when active.
When the dome light turns off, the unit will add 2 seconds then exit the learn mode.
3. The LED will begin flashing the Armed indication indicating the unit has exited the learn mode and
is armed.
ADJUSTING THE SHOCK SENSOR:
If used, the sensitivity of the pre-detect circuit is automatically set 30% less sensitive than the full trigger
circuit.
1. Using a small screwdriver, gently turn the adjustment screw fully counterclockwise. (DO NOT over turn
this screw. Maximum rotation for this adjustment is 270°). Close the hood and trunk lids, and arm the
alarm. Wait 6 seconds for the accessories trigger zone to stabilize, then firmly strike the rear bumper
with the side of a closed fist considering the amount of force required to break a window.
CAUTION: Never perform this test on the vehicle’s glass, as you may break the window.
2. Turn the adjustment screw clockwise (increasing sensitivity) about ¼ turn and re-test.
3. Repeat this procedure until the alarm sounds. Ultimately, one firm strike to the rear bumper will cause
the alarm to emit pre-detect warning tones.
WARNING!! Setting the sensitivity too high can cause false alarms due to noise vibrations from passing trucks
and heavy equipment. To decrease sensitivity, turn the adjustment screw counter clockwise.
