Features and Benefits
Two Easy-to-Use Weather-Resistant Remote Controls
The remote controls included with the CPL Security System utilize
durable, moisture resistant cases and sealed rubber buttons for
reliability and long life. Rolling code technology prevents the
transmitter signals from being duplicated. The button functions are
clearly labeled to make the system simple to operate.
All Entrances Protected
Opening any door or entrance protected by the security system
triggers the vehicle horn and flashes the vehicle parking lights.
Starter Disable
The CPL Security System protects your vehicle from theft by
disabling the starter when the system is armed.
IT-sTM Interior Theft Sensor
This patented sensor uses infra-red technology to reliably detect
vehicle impact associated with attemted intrusion. The IT-sTM sensor
guards against vehicle body damage, and theft of vehicle’s
equipment (such as airbags) and personal belongings.
Remote Keyless Entry
The CPL Security System conveniently locks and unlocks vehicle
doors and opens the trunk or hatch by remote control.*
Personal Protection Features
Remote Panic Alarm is among an array of features that enhance
personal safety.**
Interior Status Indicator
The bright-red warning light is an effective visual deterrent to a
would-be thief.
Car Find
Use the Car Find feature to locate your vehicle in a crowded
parking lot.The horn will emit 5 short honks when the find feature is
activated
IMPORTANT NOTE: The operation of the CPL Security System as described in this
manual is applicable to most vehicles. However, due to the engine type and
configuration of some vehicles (i.e. diesel engines), some functions AND/OR
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS may not apply. Please see your installing dealer for more
information.
* If vehicle is equipped with power door locks and they are connected to the alarm system by your installer.
** May require additional connections, components, and/or charges. See your installer for details.

Arming the Security System
To arm the system, exit the vehicle, close all doors, then press* the
ARM button. The horn** will “honk” twice† and the parking lights will
flash twice, indicating the system is armed. The doors will also lock at
this time (if equipped and connected). The status indicator (red
warning light on the dash) will blink steadily, once per second.
Pre-arm Mode
If the horn “honks” and the parking lights flash only once, this
indicates that the vehicle courtesy light is on, or that a protected entry
point is not closed securely. Check to see that doors, hood, and trunk
are properly closed. Once all entrances are secured (and the
courtesy light is off), the system will “honk” / flash again. The system is
now fully armed. (If the entrance is not secured within 4 minutes, the
system will arm and ignore the unsecured entrance until it is closed.)
Disarming the Security System
To disarm the system, press the DISARM button. The horn will “honk”
and the parking lights will flash once, and the doors will unlock.
The courtesy light will turn on for 1 minute, or until the vehicle is started.
Attempted Intrusion Identification
If the horn “honks” four times when disarming, this indicates that the
system was triggered in your absence. The status indicator will also
flash rapidly. Perform the following
operation to determine the protected
1 honk IT-s Interior Theft Sensor
zone that triggered the system:
After disarming, press the
emergency override button.
The horn will “honk” to indicate
the cause of the alarm trigger:
2 honks Door
3 honks Hood
4 honks Trunk/Optional Sensors
5 honks Ignition was turned on
* Throughout this manual, ‘press’ refers to pressing for less than 1 second; ‘press and hold’ refers to
pressing for more than 1 second.
**
If you have chosen the Silent Arming Option, the horn will not sound when arming or disarming until the
appropriate button is pressed a second time.

Disabling the IT-sTM Interior Theft Sensor
It may be necessary at times to disable the IT-sTM Interior Theft Sensor,
especially when parking in areas (like parking garages) where extreme
vibration may cause false alarms. Press the ARM button. Then press the
both buttons within two seconds, to disable the interior theft sensor.
The horn will chirp four times to indicate that the sensor is disabled.
The sensor will become enabled again the next time the system is
armed normally.
Activating the Trunk Release Feature
Press and hold the DISARM button to open the vehicle trunk or hatch
(if equipped and connected). This button is sometimes used to
operate another accessory, the accessory will stay active for as long
as the button is held.
Personal Protection Alarm (Panic)
Press and hold both buttons to activate the vehicle horn and parking
lights for 30 seconds. Press any remote control button to turn off the
Panic alarm.
Using Valet Mode
If the Passive Arming feature is enabled on your system, Valet mode
temporarily prevents the alarm system from arming automatically.
This is useful when fueling or servicing your vehicle.
To enter Valet Mode:
With the vehicle ignition on, press the ARM & DISARM buttons
simultaneously. The red dashboard warning light (status indicator) will
turn on for one second, then turn off. This indicates that the system is
in Valet mode.
Note: In Valet mode, all keyless entry and convenience features
operate normally. (The LED will falsh a double pulse)
To exit Valet Mode:
With the vehicle ignition on, press the ARM & DISARM buttons
simultaneously The red dashboard warning light (status indicator) will
turn on for one second, then turn off. This indicates that the system has
exited Valet mode.
Hint: To prevent your security system from automatically arming while
unloading or refueling your vehicle, without placing the system in
Valet mode, simply press the disarm button on your remote control
transmitter after turning the ignition key off. Doing so places your
system into a temporary or onetime Valet mode. Next time you exit
your vehicle the system will arm in the normal manner.

Automatic Convenience Options
The CPL Security System performs a variety of automatic functions to
enhance security and comfort. Some of these features are programmable
at the time of installation. Please see your installer for further details.
Automatic Arming
The CPL Security System will arm automatically 1 minute after the
ignition is turn off. This feature can be temporarily disabled by placing
the system into Valet mode. (If option is selected)
Ignition Lock
If all doors are closed and the vehicle is started with the key, the doors
will automatically lock.
Ignition Unlock
When the ignition is turned off, the doors will automatically unlock.
When Your Security System is Triggered
The CPL Security System will trigger if one of the following events
occurs while the system is armed:
• Any protected entrance is opened
• The vehicle ignition is turned on
• The vehicle is jolted hard enough to signal the impact detector
Once the alarm is triggered, the horn will sound and the vehicle
parking light will flash for 30 seconds. The system will then rearm, awaiting the next intrusion attempt. To stop the horn from
sounding while keeping the alarm armed and doors locked:
press the ARM button while the system is triggered.
The Interior Status Indicator

System Maintenance
Changing the Remote Control Battery
The 12-volt alkaline battery supplied in your remote transmitter
should last approximately one year, depending on usage. When the
battery begins to weaken, you will notice a decrease in range, or the
distance from your vehicle that your remote transmitter will operate.
Follow the instructions below to change the remote transmitter battery.
1. Using a coin pry off the back of the transmitter (the
transmitter snaps together) and expose the battery.
2. Remove the old battery and replace with GP-23A or
equivalent. Be sure to observe the (+) and (-) signs in the battery
compartment.
3. Replace the case backing, then test the remote transmitter.
It is not necessary to re-program the remote transmitter after
changing the battery.
Adding Remote Controls to Your System
The CPL Security System has the ability to operate from up to four (4)
remote controls. Follow these instructions to add a remote control to
your system.
1. Make sure the system is disarmed and the ignition is off.
2. Open the driver’s door.
3. Turn vehicle ignition on.
4. Press and hold emergency override button.
After 15 seconds, the horn will sound three (3) times. This
indicates that the unit has entered the remote control
programming mode.
5. Release the button.
6. Press the ARM button (button 1) on the remote control to be
programmed.
The horn will sound once, indicating that the system has
“learned” that remote control.
7. Repeat step 6 for any additional remote controls.
