Code Systems, Inc. Limited Lifetime Warranty
A Code Systems Inc. (“CODE”) vehicle comfort, convenience and security system
sold to a retail consumer purchaser by an authorized dealer of CODE and installed by an
authorized dealer of CODE is warranted by CODE to the original retail consumer purchaser
to be free from defects in workmanship and materials for the lifetime of the vehicle in
which the system was originally installed.
A CODE system sold to a retail consumer purchaser by an authorized dealer of
CODE and installed by a party other than an authorized dealer of CODE is warranted by
CODE to the original retail consumer purchaser to be free from defects in workmanship
and materials for the lifetime of the vehicle. Defects caused by or related to the improper
installation of the system are not covered by this or any other warranty.
The duration of this warranty described above applies to all components of the
system except for: switches, indicator lights, transmitter(s) and accessories purchased
separately.
Transmitters, exclusive of the transmitter case, are warranted by CODE to the
original retail consumer purchaser to be free from defects in workmanship and materials
for the lifetime of the vehicle in which the system was originally installed.
Switches, indicator lights, and transmitter cases are warranted to the original
consumer purchaser for a period of one (1) year from the date of purchase when the
system is installed by an authorized CODE dealer.
Code system accessories are covered by the warranty supplied with the accessory.
Wiring harnesses altered by installation and transmitter batteries are not covered by
this or any other warranty.
This warranty is non-transferable, non-assignable and is completely voided when the
system is removed from the car in which it was originally installed. If the vehicle in which
the system was originally installed is transferred to another party, this warranty no longer
applies.
This warranty does not apply to any product damaged by accident, physical or
electrical abuse, improper installation, alteration, any use contrary to its intended
function, unauthorized service (i.e. service by anyone other than CODE or its authorized
service personnel), fire, flood, lightning or other acts of God.
Should a product be found to be defective during the warranty duration, CODE will
repair or replace the system or any part of the system that CODE agrees is defective
without charge to the retail consumer purchaser of the system during the first year of the
warranty period. After the first year of the warranty period has expired CODE will repair or
replace the system or any part of the system that CODE agrees is defective for a fee of
$10.00 to cover shipping and handling charges.
In order for the system to be repaired or replaced under the terms of this warranty,
the defective product must be returned to an authorized CODE dealer and accompanied
by a copy of the original retail sales receipt. The date of purchase and year, make and
model of the vehicle in which the security system was originally installed must be clearly
indicated on the sales receipt.
CODE shall not be held responsible for any removal and/or reinstallation charges of
a defective system, damage to or theft of the vehicle or its contents, or any incidental or
consequential damages caused by any failure of the system to function properly. Under no
circumstances should this warranty, or system covered by it, be construed as an insurance
policy against loss. CODE neither assumes nor authorizes any person or organization to make
ANY WARRANTIES or assume any liability in connection with the sale, installation, or use of
this system. This is the complete CODE warranty and no other warranty exists.
The warranty identified in this form is exclusive and CODE makes no other
warranties expressed or implied for any goods or services provided by CODE. CODE
specifically and expressly excludes any other warranties including the fitness for a
particular purpose and all warranties of merchantability. The customers sole and exclusive
remedy for any and all claims against CODE arising out the customers use of any CODE
system shall be as delineated in the warranty set forth above. CODE shall not be liable to
any customer or any other person or entity for any direct or indirect, consequential,
special or exemplary damages arising out of or in connection with the customers use of,
or inability to use, or misuse of any CODE provided system.
Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific
legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
