ajar. Simply close the opened entry point to provide full protection. If the
siren did not sound when arming, then the chirps have been turned off,
and you should refer to the section titled “ ELIMINATING THE ARM / DISARM
CHIRPS “ in this manual.
Doors Lock - Optional
SILENT ARMING - ACTIVE
1. Turn off the engine, exit the vehicle, and close all doors, hood lid, and trunk lid.
2. Press both buttons on the keychain transmitter.

ARMING THE SYSTEM - PASSIVE ( AUTOMATIC )
1. Turn off the engine, exit the vehicle, and close and lock all doors, hood lid, and trunk lid.
Red dash mounted LED begins to flash rapidly, indicating 30 second passive
arming has begun.
2. Opening any protected entry point during the 30 second passive arming cycle will immediately suspend automatic arming, and the 30 second passive arming cycle will re start when
all doors are closed. At the end of the passive arming cycle;
Red dash mounted LED begins to flash slowly.
Parking Lights flash one time.
Siren sounds one chirp
Doors Lock - Optional
Door locking during passive arming is a selectable feature. The alarm can
be programmed to allow the doors to lock only when arming using the
keychain transmitter, and they will not automatically lock during passive
arming.
PROTECTION WHILE THE SYSTEM IS ARMED
Opening any protected door, hood, or trunk lid will cause the alarm to immediately sound.
The alarm will continue to sound for 30 seconds, then stop and continue to monitor all
protected entry points. If the thief left a door opened, the alarm will sound for six 30
second cycles, remain armed and ignore that triggered zone.
Whenever the system is armed, the red dash mounted LED indicator will slowly flash.
This serves as a visual deterrent to the potential thief. The LED is a very low current
bulb, and will not cause the vehicle’s battery to drain, even when left unattended for
extended periods.
Whenever the system is triggered, the vehicle’s parking lights will flash for the full 30
second alarm cycle, attracting visual attention to the vehicle.

Whenever the system is armed, the vehicle’s starting circuit will be bypassed. If the
thief should choose to ignore the siren, the vehicle can not be started.
Any strong impact to the vehicle's glass/body will cause the alarm to trigger for the
full 30 second alarm cycle. A milder impact will cause the siren to emit a few short
warning tones.

transmitter.

your absence. Before turning the key on, examine the LED to identify
which zone was triggered.

If the siren sounds 4 chirps, then the alarm was triggered in your absence. Before turning the key on, examine the LED and refer to the INTRUSION WARNING SIGNALS section of this manual to identify which zone
was triggered.
If the siren did not sound when disarming, then the chirps have been
turned off, and you should refer to the section titled “ ELIMINATING THE
ARM / DISARM CHIRPS “ in this manual.

INTRUSION WARNING SIGNALS
This system will inform you if an intrusion attempt has occurred while you were away from the
vehicle. If an intrusion attempt has occurred, the siren will chirp 4 times and the parking lights
will flash 3 times when disarming the system. Enter the vehicle, and observe the red
dash- mounted LED to identify which zone was triggered.
If the LED is flashing one time...pause...one time...pause...etc., then the shock sensor was
activated in your absence.

If the LED is flashing two times...pause...two times...pause...etc., then an intrusion attempt was
made to a hood or trunk pin switch that was added to the system.
If the LED is flashing three times...pause...three times...pause...etc., then an intrusion attempt
was made through one of the vehicle’s doors.
These intrusion warning indicators are stored in the system’s memory, and will only be erased
when the ignition key is turned on.
Valet Mode:
The valet switch allows you to temporarily bypass all alarm functions, eliminating the need to
hand your transmitter to parking attendants or garage mechanics. When the system is in valet
mode, all alarm functions are bypassed, however the remote panic feature and remote door
locks will remain operational. To use the valet mode, the system must first be disarmed either
by using your keychain transmitter, or by operating the manual override sequence.
1. From the disarmed condition, turn the ignition key to the on position.
2. Press and hold the valet pushbutton switch until the dash mounted LED, (Light
Emitting Diode) turns on. The LED will remain on as long as the system is in valet
mode.
3. To return to normal operation, turn the ignition switch on, then.
press and hold the pushbutton switch until the LED turns off.
NOTE : Always remember to return the system to the NON VALET mode, after servicing,
to ensure that the vehicle remains protected at all times.
MANUALLY OVERRIDING YOUR SYSTEM:
Using The Valet / Manual Override Switch:
Your Security System can be disarmed without the use of the keychain transmitter. This is
necessary, since you will need the ability to operate your vehicle if the transmitter is lost or its
battery fails.
To override the system:
1. Open the vehicle door. The alarm will sound.
2. Turn the ignition key to the on position.
3. Within 10 seconds, press and release the valet push button switch.
The alarm system will stop sounding and enter the disarmed mode. You can now start and
operate the vehicle normally.
Typically this override mode is used only if the transmitter has become inoperative. You may
elect to enter the VALET mode until repair or replacement of the transmitter, after which,
returning the system to the full operation mode is necessary. To do so, see the heading
VALET SWITCH.
ELIMINATING THE NORMAL ARM / DISARM CHIRPS
As explained earlier in the manual, you can eliminate the chirps selectively any time you arm or
disarm the system simply by pressing both transmitter buttons. If you find the normal arming and
disarming chirps annoying, they can be turned off permanently, eliminating the need to press
both buttons. To turn chirps off permanently, selectable features # 6 must be turned off in the
feature programming section of the installation manual. Refer to this manual or consult with your
installation technician to have this feature turned off.
NOTE : Whenever the chirps are bypassed, the 4 chirp intrusion indicator and 3 chirp defective zone indicator will always operate. Since these are important warnings to you
that something has happened, they cannot be eliminated.
Arming Without Shock:
This system has the ability to allow the sensor to be defeated, from the transmitter, entirely for
one arming cycle. To eliminate the sensor for one arming cycle:
Press the lock/unlock button of the transmitter, siren chirps once, and immediately press the
lock/unlock button a second time, siren chirps one long chirp. The system is armed but the
shock sensor is bypassed for one arming cycle.

alarm will immediately sound.
