MANUAL OR AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION SETUP
This module may be installed on vehicles with manual or automatic transmissions. It is originally configured for manual
transmissions. If the vehicle you are working on is automatic, it is mandatory to make a few quick and easy modifications before
the unit is connected. In the event that the configuration requires changes afterwards, a complete reset will be necessary before
those changes become effective.
Note: The installer can also use the PRG-1000 to diagnose shutdown and remote start failures. Refer to the
PRG-1000 manual guide.
To install this unit in a vehicle with a MANUAL transmission:
1.
Make sure the Yellow loop on the PC board is connected.
2.
Connect the Orange handbrake wire located on the 12-pin harness to the vehicle handbrake switch.
3.
Connect the Blue/White (+) door input OR the Grey (-) door input wire located on the 12-pin harness to the vehicle door
pin wire, which monitors all the doors of the vehicle (only use 1 of the 2 door trigger inputs).
4.
Make sure the Purple TACH wire is plugged in – the TACH wire MUST be hooked up when the module is set for a
manual transmission.
5.
Make all your regular connections.
6.
Power up the unit by first inserting the 5-pin connector, then the 6-pin connector and finally the 12-pin connector. The
parking lights will flash 4 times.
7.
When learning the transmitter, the parking lights will flash 5 times quickly.
8.
Upon the first successful remote start, the system will lock the transmission settings to manual mode.
To install this unit in a vehicle with an AUTOMATIC transmission:
1.
Cut the loop on the pc board (Yellow wire).
2.
Make sure the Orange handbrake wire is not connected to any of the vehicle circuits.
3.
Make all the regular connections.
4.
Power up the unit by first inserting the 5-pin connector, then the 6-pin connector and finally the 12-pin connector. The
parking lights will flash 4 times.
5.
When learning the first transmitter, the parking lights will flash 5 times quickly then give 2 slow flashes.
Notice
The manufacturer will accept no responsibility for any electrical damage resulting from improper installation of the product, be
that either damage to the vehicle itself or to the unit. This unit must be installed by a certified technician using all safety devices
supplied. Please note that this guide has been written for properly trained Autostart technicians: a certain level of skills and
knowledge is therefore assumed. Please review the installation guide carefully before beginning any work.
Warning
Before installing the unit, if installing on a vehicle with a manual transmission, test that the OEM Door Switch contacts of the
vehicle work well, and that the Parking Brake system operates properly. If installing on a vehicle with an automatic
transmission, test that the vehicle does not start when the gearshift lever is in the “Drive” position. If it starts in gear, reset the
remote starter to manual transmission.

6.
Upon the first successful remote start once the yellow loop has been cut, the system will lock the transmission settings
to automatic mode.
Note: If upon pressing the
button, the parking lights give 3 slow flashes, make sure that the Orange handbrake wire is not
connected, the hand brake is not engaged and that the yellow loop is cut and isolated/taped.
TRANSPONDER PROGRAMMING
This procedure is detailed in the full installation guide. To obtain a copy of the installation guide, please visit our website at
www.prostart.org.
RESETTING THE MODULE
PUSH TO START
Disabled by default, PTS mode is a special feature that is intended to facilitate the remote starter installation on most Push To
Start vehicles. With PTS mode enabled, the remote starter will offer the installer a negative start output (to pulse the vehicle’s
PTS switch), as well as a (+) brake switch output (no external relay necessary). With PTS enabled, the White/Green wire on the
12 pin harness becomes your negative (-) PTS switch output. It will give a one second output intended to pulse the PTS switch.
Also, the Purple crank output becomes your brake switch output (this will turn the brake circuit ON for crank).
WARNING!
By resetting the module, all programmed values are erased  i.e.: tach, transmitter as well as programming
options. The programming options are returned to their default values.
1. In programming Mode (page 2).
2. Once having reached the programming mode, quickly press and release the brake pedal until the parking lights flash 8
times.
BYPASS
HYBRID OPTION
Remote starters of this series have the ability to work in two way mode (D2D) with Xpresskit bypass modules. They also offer
one way communication with Xpresskit, ADS and Fortin brand bypass modules. Note: For Hardware 5.0 and higher there can
only be one bypass connected to the unit.
Warning: For automatic transmissions only.
This option is disabled by default. It can be enabled in Mode 2 of the programming options.
HYBRID mode is a special feature that is intended to facilitate the remote starter installation on most Hybrid vehicles. With
HYBRID mode enabled, the remote starter will give a four second crank output on its crank wire (It will not rely on VTS to stop
the crank cycle). The only way to shorten the four second crank output is to program a tach signal to the remote starter. If a
tach signal is programmed, the remote starter will act like normal (the HYBRID feature should be used when a tach reference is
not available from the vehicle or the bypass being used at the time of installation).
ENTERING PROGRAMMING MODE
SMARTSTART™
When teamed up with a SmartStart™ module (ASMC100), remote start features can be accessed using a smartphone. These
features include lock/unlock, engine start/stop, trunk release, panic and alarm notifications. For alarm notifications, the
Xpresskit™ bypass option (D2D) must be enabled.
To use these features, connect the SmartStart™ module to the SmartStart™ port located at the back of the remote start module
(see the wiring diagram). The SmartStart™ feature must be enabled using the programming options list found in this guide.
TESTING
These are the programming buttons:
Before putting the vehicle back together, it is recommended to check that the system operates properly. The following testing
procedures should be used to verify proper installation and operation of the system. Before testing, make sure that all
connections are soldered and that the unit is plugged in.
‰ Make sure the system properly enters and exits ready mode:
Ready mode is a sequence of steps that must be followed in order to allow manual transmission vehicles to be
remote started. To get into ready mode:
The Hood Pin
The Programming Button
(a.k.a. the P.B.)
If Ready Mode is enabled by remote
If Ready Mode is enabled by handbrake
1.
Ensure that all the doors, hood and trunk are closed. Make sure that the gear selector is in the neutral position.
2.
With the engine running, apply the parking brake once
and release the brake pedal.
3.

SETTING UP THE TACH
PROGRAMMING OPTIONS
VIRTUAL TACH ADJUSTMENT
Warning: For automatic transmissions only.
Virtual Tach System combines the latest microcontroller technology and a complex algorithm that took years to develop. VTS is
able to effectively monitor the engine starting sequence and release the starter at the right time without physically connecting
the tach wire to the remote starter. The VTS constantly monitors the data and readjusts itself automatically in order to maximize
its capability to start the engine properly in any weather or deteriorating battery condition.
OPTIONAL TIME DELAY ADJUSTMENT IN VIRTUAL TACH SYSTEM
Follow these steps to program crank time adjustment, if needed:
1. In programming mode (page 2).
2. Before the lights go out, press and hold the brake pedal and press the
BUTTON and
BUTTONS simultaneously
 the parking lights will flash 4 times. Do not release the brake pedal.
3. Press the
BUTTON if you wish to increase the time delay or the
BUTTON if you want to decrease it. The time
delay will be increased or decreased by 50 ms and the parking lights will flash once every time the
BUTTON or
the
BUTTON is pressed.
4. Press the
and
BUTTONS to save the settings you have entered.
5. Release the brake pedal – the time delay programming is now complete.
MULTI-SPEED TACH PROGRAMMING
1. In programming mode (page 2).
2. Before the lights go out, press and hold the brake pedal and press the
and
BUTTONS simultaneously  the
parking lights will flash 4 times. At that point, release the brake pedal.
3. Start up the engine and allow the vehicle to reach regular engine idle speed.
4. Once the engine is running at normal idle speed, press the brake pedal and keep it down until you hear the parking lights
output click 5 times.
5. Release the brake pedal the tach programming is now complete.
Caution! – Tach jumper settings:
Some new vehicles have a higher TACH voltage threshold, which would fall out of the normal TACH trigger circuit of the remote
car starter. Changing the jumper to TACH Threshold HIGH will allow the module to properly detect the TACH signal. BUT, if
you are having trouble with the TACH, please call our tech support team. Problems requiring changing the TACH jumper
settings are very rare.
