INSTALLATION OF THE MAJOR COMPONENTS
Control Module:
Select a mounting location inside the passenger compartment (behind the dashboard). The mounting location
selected must be within 24" of the ignition switch wiring harness to allow connection of the 6-pin harness. Be
certain that the chosen location will not interfere with the 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. Secure the module in the chosen location
using cable ties or screws as necessary. Do not mount the module in the engine compartment, as it is not
waterproof.
Hood Pin Switch:
The pin switch included in this package is required for the safety shut down of the Remote Start system. If the
vehicle is being serviced, this hood switch prevents the remote start activation even if the transmitter is
operated. This switch MUST be installed in all applications. Failure to do so may result in personal injury or
property damage. Mount the switch in an area under the hood that is away from water drain paths. If necessary,
the included brackets may be used to move the switch away from rain gutters or allow mounting to the firewall
behind the hood seal. In either case the switch must be set to allow the hood to depress the switch at least 1/
4" when the hood is closed and fully extended when the hood is opened. For direct mounting, a 1/4" hole must
be drilled. Carefully check behind the chosen location to insure the drill will not penetrate any existing factory
wiring or fluid lines. Drill a 1/4" hole in the desired location and thread the pin switch into it. If using the
mounting bracket, first secure the bracket to the desired location and secure the pin switch in the threaded
mounting bracket hole.
PROGRAM SWITCH / SAFETY (Red Handled ) CONTROL SWITCH:
Select a mounting location that is within reach of the ignition switch, as this switch, in combination with the
ignition switch and brake, will be used to program the certain features of the system. It is suggested that the
switch be mounted to the lower dash panel in the driver's area. Inspect behind the chosen location to insure
that adequate clearance is allowed for the body of the switch, and also that the drill will not penetrate any
existing factory wiring or fluid lines. Drill a 1/4" hole in the desired location and mount the switch by passing it
through the panel from the underside. Secure the switch using the nut, star washer, and ON/OFF face plate. It is
best to install the switch to allow the ON position to be up toward the driver and the OFF position to be down or
away from the driver. Route the switch wires toward the control module.
The CA-500 is to be used in vehicles with AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS only! Although this 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.
IMPORTANT!
DO NOT PLUG THE SIX PIN OR THE MULTI PIN HARNESS INTO THE CONTROL MODULE UNTIL ALL
CONNECTIONS TO THE VEHICLE HAVE BEEN MADE. AFTER SELECTING YOUR TARGET WIRES
DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE FROM THE VEHICLE BATTERY PRIOR TO MAKING ANY
CONNECTIONS.
3
THE RECEIVER/ANTENNA ASSEMBLY:
The Superheterodyne Receiver Antenna Assembly provided with this system allows routing from below the
dashboard 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. After
securing the antenna with tape, we advise also securing a section of the antenna cable to a fixed support. This
will prevent the antenna from dropping down in case the double stick tape is exposed to extreme heat, which
may loosen its gummed surface. Route the 3 pin connector toward the control module using caution not to pinch
the cable as this will cause poor or no RF reception to the control module.
WIRING THE 6 PIN HARNESS:
RED w/ VIOLET: +12 volts
Connect this wire to a +12 Volt constant source found at the vehicle's ignition switch using the 30 Amp fuse and
holder provided. This wire provides power for the control circuit as well as the ignition 1 and ignition 2 relays.
RED: +12 Volts
Connect this wire to a +12 Volt constant source found at the vehicle's ignition switch using the 30 Amp fuse and
holder provided, but NOT the same vehicle wire as used by the RED w/VIOLET wire above. Most vehicles have
more than one battery source supplying power to the ignition switch. Separate feed wires must be used for the
RED and RED w/VIOLET wires. If your vehicle does not have two battery feed wires at the ignition switch then it
is possible to connect both wires to the vehicle's battery. This wire provides power for the start relay and the
accessory relay.
IMPORTANT!
It is the responsibility of the installing technician to determine the load factor of the vehicles electrical circuits
when the vehicle is running and to adequately fuse the two power wires based on that load.
VIOLET: Starter Output
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.
PINK: Ignition 1 Output
Connect this wire to the ignition 1 wire from the ignition switch. This wire will show +12 volts when the ignition
key is turned to the to the ON, RUN and START positions, and will have 0 volts when the key is turned to the OFF
and ACCESSORY positions. 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 programable features #8)
PINK w/ WHITE: Ignition 2 Output*
Connect this wire to the ignition 2 wire from the ignition switch. This wire will show + 12 volts when the ignition
key is turned to the ON or RUN position and in some cases the START position. This wire will show 0 volts
when the key is turned to the OFF and ACCESSORY positions.
*NOTE: See programable features #2 for programming this wire to function as an ACCESSORY wire.
4
ORANGE: Accessory Output
Connect this wire to the Accessory wire from the ignition switch. This wire will show + 12 volts when the ignition
switch is turned to the ACCESSORY, ON and RUN positions, and will show 0 volts when the key is turned to the
OFF and START positions.

WIRING THE 12 PIN HARNESS:
BLACK: 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 taping screw and ring terminal.
BLACK w/WHITE: Saftey (Red Handled ) Control Switch
The BLACK w/ WHITE wire provides ON-OFF control of the Remote Starter. When the BLACK w/ WHITE wire is
switched to a full time ground, the CA500 Remote Start Module is operative. When the BLACK w/ WHITE wire is
open, the remote starter is disabled. Connect the BLACK w/ WHITE wire to one of the wires from the back of
the previously mounted Safety (Red Handled) control switch. Connect the remaining wire of the control switch to
chassis ground. Always try to mount the switch so that the ON position is in an upward or toward the driver
direction.
GRAY: Hood Pin Input (-)
Connect the GRAY wire to the hood pin switch provided . This wire will be routed through the firewall into the
engine compartment. It is necessary to use an existing grommet when passing wires through the firewall to
prevent short circuiting. This is an important safety feature of CA500, and failure to use this feature can result in
serious injury. Route the wire to the pin switch and connect it using the bullet connector provided.
5
GRAY w/ BLACK: Negative Shutdown Input 2
Any time the GRAY w/BLACK wire is grounded, the Remote Start system will stop operating, even if the signal is
received from the transmitter. If the brake light switch in the vehicle switches ground to the brake light circuit,
connect the GRAY w/BLACK wire to the output of the brake light switch. If the brake light switch in the vehicle
switches +12 Volts, do not use the GRAY w/BLACK wire; see BROWN w/RED wire.
BROWN Wire: Positive Shutdown Input 1
Any time +12 Volts is applied to the BROWN wire, the Remote Start system will stop operating, even if the signal
is received from the transmitter.If the vehicle has a factory installed hood pin switch, and that switch provides
+12 Volts to a light under the hood, the BROWN wire can be connected to the existing pin switch.
BROWN w/ RED Wire: Positive Brake Input
Any time +12 Volts is applied to the BROWN w/RED wire, the Remote Start system will stop operating, even if the
signal is received from the transmitter. If the brake light switch in the vehicle switches +12 Volts to the brake light
circuit, connect the BROWN w/RED wire to the output of the brake light switch. If the brake light switch in the
vehicle switches ground, do not use the BROWN w/RED wire; see GRAY w/BLACK wire.
Note: The BROWN w/RED wire is used for programming, if the brake switch in the vehicle switches ground, a
normally open push-button switch must be added. During the program sequence, when the brake pedal is
pressed and released, this switch will be used in it's place. If the installation of this switch is necessary, connect
one end of the normally open push button switch to the BROWN w/RED wire, and connect the other end of the
switch to a fused +12 volt source.
Brake Switch Positive Shutdown Detail
YELLOW w/ BLACK: + 12 Volt Alarm By - Pass Output
This wire provides a 500mA +12 Volt transistorized output when the ignition key is turned to the ON position, and
0 Volts when the ignition key is OFF and when the vehicle is running under the control of the Remote Start. This
wire should be connected to the ignition input of the alarm system. The YELLOW w/BLACK wire output will allow
you to remote start the vehicle while leaving the alarm armed, and to lock/unlock the doors while running
under control of the remote start system.
(2) WHITE Wires: Parking Light Output
These wires are the COMMON and NORMALLY OPEN contacts of the on-board parking light relay. If the
vehicle's parking lights are a +12 volt switched system, connect (1) of the WHITE wires to a fused (15A max.)
+12 volt battery source, and connect the second WHITE wire to the vehicle's parking light wire. If the vehicle's
parking lights are a chassis ground switched system, connect (1) of the WHITE wires to a chassis ground
source, and connect the second WHITE wire to the vehicle's parking light wire.

BLUE w/BLACK: Active output (-) Ignition 3 / Shock Disable Output
This wire provides a 300mA ground output that becomes active 3 seconds before the Remote Start system
initializes, and remains grounded while running plus an additional 4 seconds after the Remote Start system turns
off. In all of the applications described below, a relay will be required. The BLUE w/BLACK wire can be used to
accommodate the following situations:
1. Shock Sensor Bypass:
If there is Shock Sensor used with an alarm system and it is not shunted during the Remote Start activation
period, then vibration from the running vehicle can cause the alarm to trigger. In this case, connect the Blue/Black
Wire to terminal #86 of a external relay. Connect terminal# 85 of the relay to a fused + 12 volt battery source. Cut
the shock sensor 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 system is activated, the relay contacts will open, preventing
the shock sensor's operation until the Remote Start system shuts off.
2. Ignition 3 Output:
Some newer vehicles use a third ignition wire which is required to start and keep the vehicle's engine running. If
this is the case, connect the BLUE w/BLACK wire to terminal #86 of an external relay. Connect terminal # 30 & #
85 to a fused + 12 volt battery source rated for a minimum of 25 Amp. Connect terminal # 87 to the third ignition
wire in the vehicle.
3. Transponder Key Override:
To bypass the system while the vehicle is operating under the control of the Remote Start system. Connect the
BLUE w/BLACKwire to the NEG trigger input of the accessory bypass.
BLACK w/GRAY: Diesel Wait To Start
For Diesel glow plug preheat circuits, this Wait To Start input will allow the ignition to keep the glow plugs active
for the vehicles automatic time out period before cranking the starter motor. If the BLACK w/GRAY is connected
to the glow plug wire, this will take precedence over the timing setting and the Gas/Diesel programming in the
feature programming chart. Use this wire if you do not want to set the timing of the glow plug preheat circuit as
shown in the programable features chart #8.
7
PURPLE w/WHITE: Tach Sensor Input
This wire will continually monitor the engine tach rate while the unit is under power of the Remote Start system.
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 system 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 system for each cylinder, it may be necessary to connect this wire to more than one coil for
proper tach reference. Shown in the programablefeatures chart #4.
WIRING THE 4 PIN HARNESS:
This harness provides low current outputs to control various functions in the vehicle during different stages of
the Remote Start system'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.
GREEN w/BLACK: Pulsed Ground Output Before Start
The GREEN w/BLACK wire will provide a 1 second 300mA pulsed ground output 1.5 second before the remote
start system activates as well as when the transmitter is used to unlock/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 system engages.
BLUE: Pulsed Ground Output After Start
The BLUE wire will provide a 1 second 300mA pulsed ground output after the vehicle is started under control of
the Remote Start system. 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.
BLACK w/RED: Pulsed Ground Output After Shutdown
The BLACK w/RED wire will provide a 1second 300mA pulsed ground output after the Remote Start system
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.
BLACK w/YELLOW: Ground Output During Start (Crank)
The BLACK w/YELLOW wire will provide a 300mA ground output while the starter output of the Remote Start
system is active. This output can be used to activate the Bulb Test wire found in some GM vehicles.
2 Pin White Connector with PINK wire : Trunk Release Output (-)
When activated this wire provides a 300mA output capable of driving relays.
2 Pin Blue Connector : Programming Switch
Route the GRAY and BLACK wires in the 2 pin connector from the previously installed programming switch to
the control module and plug it into the mating blue connector on the side of the module.
3 Pin Antenna/Receiver Connector: (White Connector)
Plug the previously routed three pin connector from the antenna receiver assemble into the mating connector of
the control module. This connector supplies 12 volts, ground and RF data from the antenna receiver to the
remote start module. Be certain this connector is firmly seated making good contact to the control system.

3 Wire Ground Switched Door Lock Circuits:
In this application, the GREEN wire of the 2 pin harness provides a ground pulse during the arming sequence, or
pulsed ground lock output. Connect the GREEN wire to the low current ground signal wire from the factory door lock
switch to the factory door lock relay.
The BLUE wire of the 2 pin harness provides a ground pulse during the disarming sequence, or pulsed ground
unlock output. Connect the BLUE wire to the low current ground signal wire from the factory door unlock switch to the
factory door unlock relay. See Below For Wiring Detail.

TESTING YOUR INSTALLATION:
CAUTION!!
The following procedure must be performed after the installation of a Remote Start
system. It is the responsibility of the installing technician to complete these tests. Failure to
test the system in the following manner may result in personal injury, property damage, or
both.
HOOD PIN SAFETY SHUT DOWN:
To test the integrity of this circuit:
1.
With the drivers window in the down position, start the vehicle using the transmitter.
2.
Reach inside the car and pull the hood release.
3.
Raise the hood and confirm that the Remote Start system shuts down.
If the system fails this test, recheck your hood pin switch connection to the Gray/Black wire of the Remote
Start system.
DO NOT RELEASE THIS VEHICLE TO THE CONSUMER UNTIL YOU CONFIRM THE
OPERATION OF THE HOOD PIN SAFETY SHUT DOWN FEATURE.
MANUAL SHUT DOWN / ENABLE CIRCUIT:
The intention of the manual shut down / enable circuit is to allow the vehicle operator to prevent operation of
the Remote Start system regardless of the transmitter operation.To test the integrity of the manual shut down /
enable circuit:
1.
Place the control switch in the ON (Closed To Ground) position.
2.
Start the vehicle using the transmitter.
3.
The vehicle should start and run under the control of the remote start system.
4.
Move the switch to the OFF (Open From Ground) position, the vehicle should shut off.
If the unit fails this test, recheck your switch connection to the Ground and the Black/White wire of the
Remote Start system.
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 system, it is imperative that the Violet
Starter wire be connected to the ignition switch side of the Neutral safety switch. To test the integrity of the
Neutral Safety Circuit:
1.
Set the vehicle parking brake.
2.
Block the drive wheels to prevent vehicle movement.
3.
Temporarily disconnect the Brown/Red 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.
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 transmitter in an attempt to start the vehicle. The
car should not start.
13
8. Repeat the above test, but this time move the gear selector to the drive position. If the system attempts
to start, failing this test, check the Violet wire connection. This wire must be connected to the
ignition switch side of the Neutral saftey switch. If the vehicle you are working on does not have an
electrical Neutral Safety switch, it will be necessary to reconfigure the Remote Start wiring to
accommodate this vehicle.
COMPLETING THE INSTALLATION:
1. If you have not done so already, place the red rubber handle cover over the handle of the control switch
for ease of identification. This will allow your customer to distinguish the Remote Start control switch from
the program switch.
2. Mount the control module up and behind the dash securing it in place with cable ties or screws. Be certain
that the mounting location will not inhibit any of the controls of the vehicle.
3. Securely tie all wiring up and away from all hot and moving parts that they may come in contact with under
the dash board or in the engine compartment areas.
CAUTION: Avoid the area around the steering shaft and column, as wires can wrap around these
mechanisms and inhibit the safe operation of the vehicle.
4. Apply the Caution labels supplied with this kit to a conspicuous area in the engine compartment. Make
sure to clean the surface before affixing the label.
5. Check the vehicle's wipers, lights, horn, etc.... to insure proper operation.
6. Replace all panels that were removed during installation, and retest the system.
7. Explain all activated features and safety systems associated with Remote Start system installed to the
