YOUR “CODE HOPPING“ TRANSMITTERS
The transmitters included with your new remote start system use the most advanced and
secure form of radio frequency transmission available on any current automotive remote
system. Some of today’s sophisticated auto thieves use a device known as a code
grabber, which will receive and store the signal from your keychain transmitter, and retransmit at a later time to unlock your system.
Your code hopping transmitters will change their signal every time the button is pressed,
so when a thief grabs then re-transmits your signal, the system will not respond.
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 the
lock/unlock button two times within a one second time period. The system will now
respond to that transmitter each time a button is pressed.
For reference the transmitter packaged with your system may not appear exactly as
shown below. This depiction is for reference only.
NOTE: As an option, this system has the ability to operate the vehicles horn which may
require some additional parts. If this feature is installed, the vehicle's horn will beep once
when you lock the doors, twice when you unlock the doors, twice when the Remote Start
feature is activated, and will beep during the car finder mode to allow you to find the
vehicle more easily in a crowded parking lot.
KEYLESS ENTRY
1. To lock your vehicle, exit the vehicle, close all doors, hood and trunk, then simply press
the lock button of your keychain transmitter. To unlock your vehicle, simply press the
unlock button of your keychain transmitter. As a keyless entry unit, for your convenience,
the parking lights will flash once when the doors are locked and twice when the door are
unlocked. If the optional illuminated entry feature has been added, the interior light will turn
on when the doors are unlocked and remain on for 30 seconds or until the ignition is
turned on.
Holding the lock/unlock transmitter button for 3 seconds will activate the car finder mode
causing the parking lights to flash and the optional horn to beep for 30 seconds or until the
button is activated again for 3 seconds or any other button is operated.
NOTE: This system has the ability to unlock the drivers door with the first press of the
unlock transmitter button and then unlock all other doors when the unlock button
is pressed a second time. This optional feature may require additional components. Consult your installation center to determine if this feature has been added
to your vehicle.
ADDITIONAL REMOTE FUNCTION (CHANNEL 3)
This system has an additional feature that can be connected to a number of different
optional accessories. Some of the more common uses for this channel are:
o Remote Trunk Release
o Remote Window Closure
o Remote Garage Door Interface
To activate the optional accessory, press and hold the trunk/key button on the keychain
transmitter for four seconds.
NOTE: The feature that has been added to channel 3 will always be activated using the
same transmitter button that remotely starts the vehicle. There is no way to move
the channel 3 function to a different transmitter button.

SAFETY (Red Handled ) CONTROL SWITCH
The control switch allows you to temporarily disable the remote starting function of your
system. To disable the unit, move the red handled control switch to the off position.
The control switch also allows you to select between 2 hour start up and 4 hour start up
when using the automatic start up timer mode. The factory preset start up time for this
mode is every 4 hours. To select between 2 or 4 hour start up timer:
1. Begin with the control switch in the on position
2. Turn the ignition switch on then off
3. Within 10 seconds, move the control switch off, on, off, on (2 switch cycles) to select
a 2 hour start timer. After 10 seconds expire, the parking lights will flash 2 times
confirming that the two hour start cycle is set. Or, within 10 seconds move the control
switch off, on, off, on, off, on, off, on (4 switch cycles) to select a 4 hour start timer.
The parking lights will flash 4 times confirming that the 4 hour start timer is set.
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.
4. The Safety Control Switch Is In The Off Position.
CAUTION! Be certain that the vehicle is outdoors before using this or any remote vehicle
starting device. A running engine produces dangerous carbon monoxide
fumes which can be harmful or fatal if prolonged exposure occurs. DO NOT
remote start the vehicle if the car is garaged.
To Remote Start The Vehicle:
Press and release the trunk/key button of your keychain transmitter two times within 2
seconds. The vehicle will start and remain running for the pre-programmed 5, 10, 15 or 20
minutes. As a visual indication, the parking lights will flash or turn on dependent on the
programming set up by your installation center.
When you arrive at your vehicle, unlock it with the key or by pressing and releasing the
trunk/key button of your keychain transmitter. Enter the vehicle and turn the ignition key to
the on position.
CAUTION! Do not turn the key to the start position. This will cause the starter motor to
engage with the already running engine which could result in damage. Step
on the brake pedal to disengage the remote start unit. The vehicle will continue to run but now on it's own power.
NOTE: The engine will stop running before the expiration of the pre-programmed run timer
or if you complete any of the following:
1. Press and release the trunk/key button of your keychain transmitter two times within 2
seconds.
2. Depress the brake pedal.
3. Open the hood.

hour period. This feature is especially useful in cold climates where the only means to
keep the engine and engine fluids warm is to periodically start the engine.

vehicle starting device. A running engine produces dangerous carbon
monoxide fumes which can be harmful or fatal if prolonged exposure occurs. DO NOT remote start the vehicle if the car is garaged.

hours.
NOTE: The automatic start up timer can also be initiated from the keychain transmitter.
To do this:
1. Start the vehicle using the keychain transmitter by pressing and releasing the trunk/
key button transmitter button 2 times.
2. Shut off the vehicle using the keychain transmitter by pressing and releasing the
trunk/key transmitter button 2 times.
