YOUR “Spread Spectrum CODE HOPPING“ TRANSMITTERS
The transmitters included with your new security system use the most advanced
and secure form of radio frequency transmission available on any current automotive security system. Some of today’s sophisticated auto thieves use a device
Page 2
128-8261
2 of 24
known as a code grabber, which will receive and store the signal from your
keychain transmitter and re-transmit at a later time to disarm your system.
Your Spread Spectrum Code Hopping transmitters will change their signal and
shift from frequency to frequency every time the button is pressed. This makes it
nearly impossible for a thief to capture your code.
If your transmitter button is pressed more than fifty times while it is out of range of
the vehicle (children playing with your keys), the transmitter will not operate when
you return to the vehicle, and will need to be re-aligned to the receiver. To do this,
simply press button 1, (lock), two times within a one second time
period. The system will now respond to that transmitter
each time a button is pressed.
NOTE: This system is custom configureable and can
be set up to operate with a number of options controlled from any transmitter button or button combination. For reference, we will describe operation assuming that your system is programmed for separate lock
and unlock buttons. Also reference will be made to the
icons as shown on the buttons left.
NOTE: The OLED based remote will be explained in
detail further in this manual See "System Status" described later in this manual. Consult your installation center if your system has been configured differently.
NOTE: Your system has the option of using a siren, the vehicle horn, or both for
the sounding device. Where the siren is referenced below, the horn or
both may in fact chirp, or beep.
ARMING THE SYSTEM - ACTIVE
1. Turn off the engine, exit the vehicle, and close all doors, hood lid and trunk lid.
2. Press and release Lock/Arm button on the keychain transmitter.
; The dash mounted LED begins to flash slowly.
; Parking Lights flash one time.
; Siren sounds one chirp.
If the siren/horn sounds 3 chirps, then you have left a door, trunk, or
hood lid ajar. Simply close the opened entry point to provide full protection. If the siren "chirped" three times, sometime after arming, the
exclusive delayed dome light learn circuit has been programmed and
the system detected a open entry point after the learned delay expired.
Again, closing the hood, trunk, or doors will correct the problem and you
do not need to disarm the system to make the correction. If the siren/
horn 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
NOTE: If the optional Headlamp illumination feature has been added, and has
been selected for operation when arming, as an added convenience, the
system will turn on the headlights when the system is armed.
SILENT ARMING - ACTIVE (Must be activated during programming)
1. Turn off the engine, exit the vehicle and close all doors, hood lid and trunk lid.
2. Press and hold the Lock/Arm button on the keychain transmitter for 2
seconds.
; The dash mounted LED begins to flash slowly.
; Parking Lights flash one time.
Page 3

; Siren will not sound.
If the siren "chirped" three times, sometime after arming, the exclusive delayed
dome light learn circuit has been programmed and the system detected a open
entry point after the learned delay expired. Closing the hood, trunk, or doors will
correct the problem and you do not need to disarm the system to make the
correction.
† Doors Lock - Optional
NOTE: If the optional Headlamp illumination feature has been added, and has
been selected for operation when arming, as an added convenience, the system will turn on the headlights when the system is armed.
The LCD Remote has the following response:
ARMING THE SYSTEM - PASSIVE (AUTOMATIC)
(Must be activated during programming)
1. Turn off the engine, exit the vehicle and close and lock all doors, hood lid and
trunk lid.
; The 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 restart when all doors are closed. At the end of the passive
arming cycle;
; The dash mounted LED begins to flash slowly.
; Parking Lights flash one time.
; Siren sounds one chirp
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
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 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.
; Optional - 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 mild impact to the vehicle’s glass will cause the alarm to sound a short
series of warning tones.
; Any strong impact to the vehicle’s glass will cause the alarm to trigger for the
full 30 second alarm cycle.

keychain transmitter.
; The dash mounted LED turns off.
The LED will start flashing rapidly, indicating that the system is re-arming
automatically. Open any door to suspend the automatic arming.
; Parking Lights flash two times.
If the parking lights flashed three times, then the alarm was triggered in your
absence. Before turning the key on, examine the LED to identify which zone was
triggered.
; Siren sounds two chirps.
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.
† Doors Unlock - Optional
† 2 Step Doors Unlock - Optional
NOTE: If the optional Headlamp illumination feature has been added and has
been selected for operation when disarming, as an added convenience, the

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.
† Doors Unlock - Optional
† 2 Step Doors Unlock - Optional
NOTE: If the optional Headlamp illumination feature has been added and has
been selected for operation when disarming, as an added convenience, the
system will turn on the headlights when the system is disarmed.
WHILE THE SYSTEM IS SOUNDING
If during a triggered state, you wish to shut off the siren without disarming your
security system, simply press and release any transmitter button other than the
Unlock/Disarm button. This action will turn off the siren yet leave the vehicle fully
armed and protected. This feature is particularly useful if you are aware of children
playing near your vehicle that may accidently trigger your security system. In this
case you can cancel the siren sounding without disarming your alarm.
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.
n If the LED is flashing one time...pause...one time...pause...etc., then an
intrusion attempt was made to the shock sensor, or an accessory triggering
device that may have been added to the system.
o 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 or to a light activated entry point if the alarm was installed using
the voltage sensing feature.
p 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 SWITCH
NOTE: Some units may include a combination Push-Button/LED Switch in these
systems the LED and Switch are one and the same.
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. In addition,
the parking lights will flash to indicate locking and unlocking. To use the valet
mode, the system must first be disarmed either by using your keychain transmitter or by activating your personalized manual override code.
1. Enter the vehicle and turn the ignition key to the on position.
2. Press and hold the valet pushbutton switch until the dash mounted
LED turns on solid. The system will remain in the valet mode.
3. To return to normal operation, press and release the pushbutton
switch any time the ignition is on.
NOTE: Always remember to return the system to normal operation. This will
ensure that the vehicle remains protected at all times.
MANUALLY OVERRIDING YOUR SYSTEM:
USING THE VALET SWITCH MANUAL OVERRIDE
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. If your system has been selected for Valet Switch manual override as
Page 6
128-8261
6 of 24
indicated on the last page of this manual, to bypass the alarm system;
1. Open the vehicle door. The alarm will sound.
2. Turn the ignition key to the on position.
3. Within 5 seconds, press and release the valet pushbutton switch.
The alarm system will stop sounding and enter the (bypass) mode. You can now
start and operate the vehicle normally.
Typically this override mode is used only if the transmitter has become inoperative.
PROGRAMMING YOUR CUSTOM OVERRIDE CODE:
Unlike override switches easily found, and defeated, this security system allows the
consumer to program a personal override code, offering a higher level of security. To take
advantage of this option, programmable feature # 10 must be selected for the Custom
Code Option. Consult your installation center for programming details. The system
comes from the factory with a pre-programmed override code of 11. To change this
default override code, do the following:
1. Disarm the system by use of the transmitter, or by use of the emergency
override sequence. Turn the ignition switch to the on position.
2. Within 10 seconds, press and release the valet/override switch, 3 times.
3. Within 10 seconds turn the ignition switch off, on, off, on, off, on.
(The siren or horn will beep and the lights will flash one time.)
4. Within 10 seconds, begin to enter your chosen 10ths digit by pressing and
releasing the pushbutton switch from 1 up to 9 times.
5. Within 10 seconds of the last entered 10ths digit, turn the ignition switch off
then on.
6. Within 10 seconds, begin to enter your chosen units digit by pressing and
releasing the pushbutton switch from 1 up to 9 times.
7. Finish by turning the ignition switch to the off position.
If the new code was accepted, the unit will report back the newly entered code, by
flashing the LED, first indicating the 10ths digit, pause and then the units digit.
The unit will report the new code three times with a one second pause between
each code, then the system will begin arming. If the LED flash pattern reports the
previously stored code, the new code was not entered correctly. Please repeat
steps 1 through 7 above considering the following.
NOTE: Acceptable digits 10ths or units are 1 through 9. The unit will not
recognize a 0 (Zero), or no digit entered in any place, units or tenths.
NOTE: If 15 seconds of inactivity expire or if the ignition switch is turned off for
more then 5 seconds during any of the above steps, the unit will revert
back to the last successfully stored code.
Custom Code Programming Example:
To Change the code from the factory pre-assigned code of 11 to “52” you would do
the following:
1. Disarm the system by use of the transmitter or by use of the emergency
override sequence.
2. Turn the ignition switch to the on position.
3. Within 10 seconds, press and release the valet/override switch, 3 times.
4. Within 10 seconds turn the ignition switch off, on, off, on, off, on.
(The siren or horn will beep and the lights will flash one time.)
5. Within 10 seconds, begin to press and release the pushbutton switch to set
the tenths digit.
(As per the example, press and release 5 times to set the tenths digit to 5)
6. Within 10 seconds of the last press of the pushbutton, turn the ignition switch
off then on.
Page 7
128-8261
7 of 24
7. Within 10 seconds, begin to press and release the pushbutton switch to set
the units digit.
(As per the example, press and release 2 times to set the units digit to 2).
8. Turn the ignition switch to the off position. Immediately observe the LED flash
pattern.
You will note the LED flashing five times, pause, and then flash two times, pause.
This pattern will be repeated three times indicating the new code (52) has been
accepted and stored in memory.
NOTE: If after step 7, the LED flashes a code other than what was just entered,
this indicates that the code has not been changed. You will have to repeat
steps 1 through 7 above being certain to note the following:
Acceptable digits 10ths or units are 1 through 9. The unit will not recognize a 0
(Zero), or no digit entered in any place, units or tenths.
NOTE: If 15 seconds of inactivity expire, or if the ignition switch is turned off for
more then 5 seconds during any of the above steps, the unit will revert
back to the last successfully stored code.
MANUALLY OVERRIDING YOUR SYSTEM:
USING THE CUSTOM CODE OVERRIDE
Assuming the override code programmed has not been changed, and the default
override code of 11 is in the system's memory.
1. Enter the vehicle and turn the ignition switch to the on position.
NOTE: The siren will sound.
2. Within 5 seconds, press and release the pushbutton switch 1 time.
3. Within 5 seconds, turn the ignition switch off then on.
4. Within 5 seconds, press and release the pushbutton switch 1 time.
5. Turn the ignition switch off then on and start the vehicle.
NOTE: If you have changed the programmed override code then substitute your
new code tenths for step 2 above, and units for step 5 above.
PUSHBUTTON SAFETY CONTROL SWITCH
The Pushbutton control switch allows you to temporarily disable the remote starting function
of the system. This is recommended whenever the vehicle is being serviced. To place the
system in the service mode:
1) With the system disarmed/unlocked, and the ignition switch off Press and Hold the
pushbutton Switch on.
2) Turn the ignition switch on, off, on, off, on, off.
3) The LED begins to flash two short flashes followed by one long flashes and
continues this pattern until returned to normal mode of operation.
This puts the unit into the R/S Override mode indicating that the remote start is in the
service mode and will not start from RF or any other input Posse or otherwise.
To Exit R/S Override Mode:
1) With the system disarmed, Press and Hold the Push Button Switch on.
2) Turn the ignition switch on, off, on, off, on, off.
3) The LED turns off indicating that the R/S unit is fully functional one again.
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, if the feature has been activated, simply by
holding the ARM or DISARM button for two seconds. If you find the normal arming
and disarming chirps annoying, they can be turned off permanently, eliminating
the need to hold the ARM / DISARM button for 2 seconds. To do this:
1. Turn the ignition key on then off.
2. Within 10 seconds, press and release valet switch three times.
3. If the chirps were on before you started, then you will hear two chirps indicat
ing they have been turned off.
Page 8
128-8261
8 of 24
If the chirps were off before you started, then you will hear one chirp indicating
they have been turned on.
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.
NOTE: Your system must be programmed by the installation center to enable this feature.
REMOTE PANIC OPERATION
The Lock or Unlock button on your keychain transmitter also functions as a panic
switch for use in emergency situations. To use remote panic,
1. Press and hold the Lock or Unlock button on the keychain transmitter for 3 or
more seconds. The alarm will immediately sound.
2. To stop the alarm, press and hold the Lock or Unlock button on the transmitter
again for 3 seconds. If the button is not pressed, the alarm will automatically
stop after 30 seconds. Also if any transmitter button other than the Lock or
Unlock button is pressed and released, the Panic mode will be turned off
immediately. The normal function of this transmitter button will be suspended
during the Panic sounding period.
3. During the panic mode, the Lock and Unlock buttons can be used to lock and
unlock the doors, (if the option is installed), however once the unlock/disarm
button is pressed, the vehicle's starter inhibit device, (where installed) will be
disabled allowing the vehicle to start.
NOTE: While in the Panic mode, pressing and releasing the Lock or Un
lock buttons will, if the option is installed, lock and unlock the doors
respectively. While in the panic mode, anytime the Unlock button is
pressed, the panic feature will continue for the allotted 30 seconds,
however, the security system will be disarmed allowing the vehicle to
start.
RF SHOCK SENSOR MODE SELECTION
The way in which your alarm system reacts to threatening vibrations, created by
attempts to enter the vehicle by breaking a window, is adjustable by the transmitter
immediately after arming. There are 4 modes of operation that can be selected
by the operator:
1. Normal Operation (default mode)
In this mode, any strong vibrations will cause the siren to sound (full
detect) for 30 seconds. Any lesser vibration will cause the siren to emit
about 6 short warn away chirps, (pre-detect).
2. Stage 1 (Omit pre-detect)
In this mode, the warn away chirps created by the lesser vibration will be
deleted. If strong vibration occurs, the siren will sound.
3. Stage 2 (Omit pre & full detect)
In this mode, both the pre-detect stage and the full trigger stage of the sensor
are defeated. The unit will not react to vibration of any magnitude.
NOTE: Shock Sensor Icon Is Displayed On The LCD Panel.
4. Stage 3 (City Mode)
In this mode, the pre-detect chirps will change from six pre-warning tones to
a full 10 seconds of warning chirps.
The full detect trigger duration will be reduced from 30 seconds to 15 seconds.
NOTE: Setting the stage of the shock sensor will be effective for one arming
cycle only. Once the system has been disarmed, the very next arming
cycle will cause the sensor to default to the normal operation stage.
To change or adjust the shock sensor, press and release the ARM button of you
Page 9
128-8261

keychain transmitter.
1. Within 2 seconds of arming, press and release the ARM button 1 time, to
defeat the pre-detect stage of the shock sensor. (The lights will flash and the
siren will chirp once.)
2. Within 2 seconds of step 1, press and release the ARM button 2 times, to
defeat the pre and full detect stages of the shock sensor. (The lights will
flash and the siren will chirp twice.)
3. Within 2 seconds of step 1, press and release the ARM button 3 times to
enter the "City Mode" of operation. (The lights will flash and the siren will chirp
three times.)
While under control of the remote start the system can be programmed to allow
you to shunt the shock sensor from the transmitter. If the system has been such
programmed, simply press the lock button of your keychain transmitter anytime
during the remote start cycle. The shock sensor will be shunted for the entire run
cycle and will resume normal operation after the remote start unit shuts off.
Check with your installation center to determine if this feature has been programmed into your system.
REMOTE STARTING THE VEHICLE
The system WILL NOT start the vehicle if any one of the following conditions
exists:
1. The Vehicle Hood Is Opened.
2. The Gear Selector Is In Any Gear Other Then Park.
3. The Brake Is Depressed.
WARNING! Be certain that the vehicle is outdoors before using this or any re
