WARNING! This Remote Start is to be used in vehicles with AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS only! Although this
system is a sophisticated device with many advanced features, IT MUST NOT be installed into a vehicle with
manually operated transmission. Doing so may result in serious personal injury and property damage!
INSTALLATION OF THE MAJOR COMPONENTS:
CONTROL MODULE:
PART # 1365398
Select a mounting location inside the passenger compartment (up behind the dashboard). The mounting location selected must be within 24" of the ignition switch wiring harness to allow connection of the 6
pin main wiring harness. Be certain that the chosen location will not interfere with 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. The module
will be secured after all wiring is completed which will allow complete access until the job is done.
Do Not Mount The Module In The Engine Compartment, as it is not waterproof.
HOOD PIN SWITCH:
PART # 1363699
The pin switch included in this package is intended for protecting the hood area of the vehicle. In all cases,
the switch must be mounted to a grounded metal surface. When the pin switch is activated, (hood open),
it will supply a ground to the input wire activating the alarm. In addition, the hood switch is required for
the safety shut down of the remote start unit. If the vehicle is being worked on, this hood switch prevents
the remote start activation even if the RF command to start is issued. WARNING! This switch must be
installed in all applications. Failure to do so may result in personal injury or property damage.
THE PUSH-BUTTON PROGRAM SWITCH/LED/RECEIVER/ANTENNA ASSEMBLY: PART # 1181202
The Superheterodyne Receiver Antenna Assembly provided with this unit allows routing from below the dash
board 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.

SELECTING YOUR TARGET WIRES AS DEFINED BELOW, DISCONNECT THE NEGATIVE BATTERY
CABLE FROM THE VEHICLE BATTERY PRIOR TO MAKING ANY CONNECTIONS.
NOTE: Do not remove the fuse holders from this wire harness. Fuses must be used and located
as close as possible to the power source for adequate protection of the vehicle.
WIRING THE 6 PIN MAIN POWER HARNESS:
PART # 1123742
NOTE: Do not remove the fuse holders from this wire harness. Fuses must be
used and located as close as possible to the power source for adequate protection
of the vehicle.
1 BLUE Wire: 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 "ON" or "RUN" and the "START" or CRANK" 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 selectable feature Bank 3 #12)
2 RED/WHITE WIRE: + 12 volt Battery 1 Source Fused 30A
Locate the vehicle battery wire(s) at the ignition switch. Verification: These wires will register voltage in all positions of
the ignition switch. Connect the Red w/White wire to the vehicle's battery wire. This wire provides power for the control
circuit as well as the ignition 1 and ignition 2 relays.
3 GREEN Wire: 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 is some cases the "START" or CRANK" position.
This wire will show 0 volts when the key is turned to the "OFF" and "ACCESSORY" positions.
NOTE: See programming information (Bank 3 Selection #7) concerning this wire to allow output during the
"START" mode.
4 PURPLE Wire: 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" or "ON" and "RUN" positions, and will show 0 volts when the
key is turned to the "OFF" and "START" or "CRANK" positions.
5 RED WIRE: + 12 Volt Battery 2 Source Fused 30A
Locate the vehicle battery wire(s) at the ignition switch. Verification: These wires will register voltage in all positions
of the ignition switch. Connect the Red wire to the vehicle's battery wire. This wire provides power for the start relay
and the accessory relay.
6 YELLOW Wire: Starter Output
Careful consideration for the connection of this wire must be made to prevent the vehicle from
starting while in gear. Understanding the difference between a mechanical and an electrical
Neutral Start Switch will allow you to properly identify the circuit and select the correct installation
method. In addition you will realize why the connection of the safety wire is required for all mechanical switch configurations.
Failure to make this connection properly can result in personal injury and property damage.
In all installations it is the responsibility of the installing technician to test the remote start unit and ensure
that the vehicle cannot start via RF control in any gear selection other than park or neutral.

128-9300
6 of 24
In both mechanical and electrical neutral start switch configurations, the connection of the Yellow wire will
be made to the low current start solenoid wire of the ignition switch harness. 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.
NOTE: This wire must be connected to the vehicle side of the starter cut relay (when used). For the electrical
neutral switch configuration, this connection must be made between the starter inhibit relay,
( when used ) and the neutral safety switch as shown in the following diagram.
Failure to connect this wire to the ignition switch side of the of the neutral safety switch can result in personal
injury and property damage.

WIRING CONNECTIONS: 12 Pin Accessory Input/Output Harness
PART # 1124295
1 Green w/ Orange trace Wire: Tachometer Input Signal
This wire will continually monitor the engine's tach rate while the unit is under power of the Remote Start
module. 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 unit learns the tach
rate of the vehicle and in most cases will operate properly from one coil pack regardless of the number of
cylinders. If the unit has difficulty sensing a single coil, this input can connect to an injector wire as an
alternate.
NOTE: For Hybrid mode selection, Bank 3 feature selection 5, this connection is not required, the unit will
start the vehicle and run the allotted time based on feature selection and crank duration.
2 Green w/ Yellow trace Wire: Diesel Wait To Start Input
The green/yellow wire, when connected to the wire that get + 12 volts during the glow plug preheat stage will
delay the starter output until this wire drops the 12 volts. In other words, in a Diesel vehicle with glow plug
preheat circuit, when the ignition is turned on, the vehicle will not crank until the glow plugs are hot enough
to fire the atomized fuel oil when injected into the cylinder. By connecting this wire to the glow plug + 12 volt
wire, when the remote start unit activates the ignition one output, the glow plug output also activates. The
remote start sees the green/yellow with positive voltage and waits for this to go inactive( drop to 0 volts) before activating the starter motor. If this wire is not used or you have difficulty accessing the glow plug preheat
circuit, you may elect to utilize the Diesel timed output as specified in Remote Start feature selection Bank
3 Feature #12. NOTE: If green/yellow is used, it will override or negate any setting of bank 3 feature #12.

3 Green Wire: Door Unlock (-) Output
The Green wire provides a (-) Negative Pulse when the transmitter is used, while the vehicle is running by
remote start, to unlock the doors. See Page 12-13 for use of this unlock output.
4 Brown w/ Black trace Wire: Positive Inhibit Input
The Brown w/ Black Trace wire provides an instant shutdown for the Remote Start Control module whenever
it gets + 12 volts. If the Brake lights switch in the vehicle switches + 12 volts to the brake light circuit, connect the Brown w/ Black trace wire to the output side of the brake switch. This will allow the Remote Start
to shut down if an attempt is made to operate the vehicle without the key while running under the control
of the Remote Start. In most vehicles, in order to shift into gear, the brake pedal must be depressed. The
brake input will in turn cause the remote start unit to shut off.
5 Brown Wire: (+) Inhibit Shut Down
Any time + 12 Volts is applied to the Brown wire, the Remote Starter will be prevented from operating, even
if the signal is received from the transmitter. If there is a neutral start wire in the vehicle that switches + 12
volts when the vehicle is in any gear other than Park or Neutral, this wire can be connected to that vehicle
wire to prevent starting while in gear.
6 Gray: (-) Inhibit / Shut Down
Any time ground is applied to the Gray wire, the Remote Starter will be prevented from operating, even if
the signal is received from the transmitter. If there is a neutral start wire in the vehicle that switches ground
when the vehicle is in any gear other than Park or Neutral, this wire can be connected to that vehicle wire
to prevent starting while in gear.
If the vehicle you are working switches ground to the brake light circuit, this wire can be connected to the
output side of the brake switch. This will allow the Remote Start to shut down if an attempt is made to operate the vehicle without the key while running under the control of the Remote Start. In most vehicles, in
order to shift into gear, the brake pedal must be depressed. The brake input will in turn cause the remote
start unit to shut off.
7 Black w/ Yellow trace Wire: Ground Output During Start (Crank)
The Black w/ Yellow Trace wire will provide a 300 mA ground output while the starter output of the remote
start unit is active. This output can be used to activate the Crank Low/Bulb Test wire found in some GM
vehicles. This wire is also referred to as the ECM wake up wire in some vehicles.
NOTE: The outputs above are low current outputs and must be used with a relay if the circuit's requirement
is more than 300 mA. This output is also selectable and can preform an alternate function as shown in
feature selection bank 3 Feature #20.
8 Black w/ Red trace Wire: Pulsed Ground Output After Shutdown
The Black w/ Red Trace wire will provide a 1 second 300 mA pulsed ground output 2 seconds after the
remote starts GWR wire 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. This output is selectable and can function as described
in feature selection of bank 3 feature #22.
8
128-9300
8 of 24
9 Black w Blue trace Wire: Pulsed Ground Output Before Start
The Black w/ Blue Trace wire will provide a 1 second 300 mA pulsed ground output 500mS before GWR
becomes active as well as when the transmitter is used to 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 unit engages or when the system is used to unlock the doors. This will also activate when the
transmitter is used to disarm/unlock the system
NOTE: This output can be selected to operate like the door unlock output as set in alarm feature setting
#1 by selecting feature #19 in Bank 3 for 2 Chirps or any other pulse timing shown for that feature
selection.
10 Black w/ Light Green trace Wire: Pulsed Ground Output After Start
The Black w/ Light Green Trace wire will provide a 1 second 300mA pulsed ground output after the vehicle
is started under control of the remote start unit. 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. This wire will also activate
when the transmitter is used to arm/lock the system. This output can be selected to operate in a number of
different configurations as shown in selectable feature # 21 of Bank 3.
11 LT. Blue Wire: Ground Output While Running (-) 300mA
This wire provides a 300mA ground output that becomes active 1.5 seconds before the Remote Start
Unit initializes and remains grounded while running plus an additional 2 seconds after the Remote Start
Unit turns off. In all of the applications described below, a relay will be required.
The Light Blue wire can be used to accommodate the situations found on the following page.
12Gray w/ Black trace Wire: Negative Inhibit Input / Trigger When Armed
The Gray w/ Black Trace wire provides an instant shutdown for the Remote Start Control Module whenever
it is grounded. Connect the Gray w/ Black trace wire to the hood pin switch previously installed. This wire
must be routed through a grommet in the firewall and connected to the hood pin switch. If connecting to a
factory hood pin switch, or separate alarm it is recommended that a double diode circuit be used to prevent
feed back of one device to the other.

A. Sensor By Pass:
If there is a Non Plug in Sensor used with the alarm system and it is not shunted during the Remote
Start activation period, then vibration or noise from the running vehicle can cause the alarm to trigger.
In this case, connect the Light Blue Wire to terminal #86 of a external relay. Connect terminal # 85 of
the relay to a fused + 12 volt battery source. Cut the sensor's 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 unit is activated, the relay contacts will open, preventing the sensor's operation until the Remote
Start unit shuts off.
B. Additional Ignition Output:
Some vehicle's may require more than three ignition outputs to start and keep the vehicle's engine
running. If this is the case, connect the Light Blue wire to terminal #86 of an external relay. Connect
terminal # 85 to a fused + 12 volt source. Dependent on the vehicle's requirement, connect terminal
#30, to a fused + 12 volt source, or to ground, and connect terminal 87 to the vehicle to supply the
additional ignition source.
C. GM VATS Key Override:
If the vehicle has the General Motors VATS system installed, you will need to bypass the system while
the vehicle is operating under the control of the Remote Start Unit. To Do This:
1. Measure the resistance of the resistor pellet on the ignition key then select a resistor within 5% of
the key's value
2. Locate the pair of VATS wires in the vehicle, usually a pair of thin gauge wires running from the
ignition switch to the VATS control module.
NOTE: These wires are typically White w/ Black trace and Violet w/ Yellow trace, however in later model
Cadillacs, they are run through an orange sleeve, and are either both Black, both Yellow, or both White
wires. Consult the factory service manual for additional information.
3. Connect the Light Blue Wire from the Remote Start Unit to terminal #86 of an external relay. Connect
terminal #85 of the relay to a fused + 12 volt battery source.
4. Cut (#1) wire (as shown), and connect the ignition switch side of the cut wire to terminal #87a of the
relay. Connect the other side of the (#1) wire to terminal #30.
5. Connect the previously selected resistor from terminal #87 to the second (#2) wire (as shown).
NOTE: The above information and following diagram is for the GM VATS system only.

DIESEL ENGINE SETTINGS:
NOTE: When selecting Diesel operation, (Bank 3 Feature #12), over gasoline, the only change is to the
ignition circuits. When Diesel is selected, the ignition circuits will power up 10, 15, or 20 seconds before
the start circuit. The intent of this feature is to allow the glow plug warming required by some diesel engines. If your vehicle is a instant start diesel, it is not necessary to activate this feature.
ALSO: When selecting Diesel mode, be certain that the intended vehicle has a true tach reference and be
certain to connect the tach input wire. Also note, if the "Diesel Wait to Start" input is connected,
(Green/Yellow) this wire will take precedence over the Diesel selection of bank 3 feature 12.
4 PIN IN VEHICLE DATA BUS PORT (DBI Port)
(Connector Port)
The 4 pin port located on the side of this module is for proprietary Audiovox data bus interface modules.
These modules are used to access a variety of features in the vehicle which can be as simple as door trigger
inputs, to more complex door locks outputs, or transponder interfaces for remote starting. DO NOT connect
anything to this port other than the Audiovox IDB modules or damage to the Remote Start module will occur.
All installation instructions for the IDB modules will be packaged with the individual component along with
the proper 4 pin wiring harness requires to access the data transmit & receive as well as the proper voltage
levels for the interface.
Monitoring The Vehicle's Engine: (Program Feature #5 Bank 3)
There are 4 ways that the remote start monitors the engine running, one or the other must be selected for
your application for the remote start to operate correctly.
1) VOLTAGE SENSE SETTING:
The unit will monitor the voltage level of the battery during remote start, wait for the voltage to drop while
cranking, then look for the voltage level to go above the level it was before the vehicle began to crank which
indicates the vehicle is running. Feature #14 of Bank 3 must be set for averaging or the voltage sense
feature will not operate indicated by the parking lights flashing 7 times.
2) TACH RATE SETTING:
1. Turn the ignition key to the On position.
2. Press and release the valet/program push button switch 3 times.
3. Immediately turn the ignition key Off.
4. Press and hold the valet/program push button switch, then start the vehicle using the key.
5. When the unit senses the tach signal, the parking lights will begin to flash.
6. Release the valet/program pushbutton switch. The parking lights will turn on for three seconds to indicate
that the learned tach signal is stored and the unit is out of the tach learn mode.
NOTE: If the unit fails to learn tach rate due to an improper tachometer connection or a poor tach source,
the parking lights will not flash. To correct this situation, locate and connect the Green/Orange wire
to the proper tach signal, and then repeat the tach learn routine.
3) DBI TACH SETTING:
Selecting this setting in the option menu indicates that you have a DBI module and have determined that a
tach signal is available for the vehicle you are connecting to. The unit will look at the DBI data port for the
tach signal. If the vehicle fails to start, or the unit flashes 7 times, recheck the DBI manual to insure that tach
is available for your vehicle. If not the tach connection wire, Green/Orange must be used.
4) HYBRID SETTING:
Selecting this setting in the option menu allows for Hybrid vehicles. Also feature #14 of Bank 3 must be set
for preset time or the Hybrid feature will not operate indicated by the parking lights flashing 7 times.
CRANK AVERAGING:
When Feature 14 Bank 3 is set for crank averaging, the remote start unit constantly monitors and learns
the cranking patterns of the vehicle each time the car is started with the key. The vehicle must be started at
least 4 times with the key for the crank averaging circuit to begin it's monitoring the vehicle's engine.

TESTING YOUR INSTALLATION:
WARNING! The following procedure must be performed after the installation of any Remote Start Device. It
is the responsibility of the installing technician to complete these tests. Failure to test the unit in the following
manner may result in personal injury, property damage, or both.
HOOD PIN SAFETY SHUT DOWN:
The intent of the hood pin safety shut down is to prevent the Remote Start unit from being activated while a
mechanic or vehicle owner is performing normal routine vehicle maintenance.
To test the integrity of this circuit:
1. With the drivers window in the down position, start the vehicle using the RF transmitter.
2. Reach inside the car and pull the hood release.
3. Raise the hood and confirm that the remote start unit shuts down. If the unit fails this test, recheck your
pin switch connection to the Gray/Black wire of the Remote Start Unit.
DO NOT RELEASE THIS VEHICLE TO THE CONSUMER UNTIL YOU CONFIRM THE
OPERATION OF THE HOOD PIN SAFETY SHUT DOWN FEATURE.
REMOTE START OVERRIDE MODE / MANUAL SHUT DOWN:
The intent of the remote start override / manual shut down circuit is to allow the vehicle operator to prevent
operation of the Remote Start Unit regardless of the RF transmitter operation.
To Enter The Remote Start Override Mode:
1) With the system disarmed/unlocked, and the ignition switch off Press and Hold the push button switch
located on the receiver unit 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.
The action above puts the unit into the Remote Start Override mode or vehicle service mode and will not
start from the RF transmitter or any other input.

To Exit Remote Start Override Mode:
1) With the system disarmed, Press and Hold the PBLED 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.
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 Device, it is imperative that the Yellow Starter wire be connected to the ignition switch side of the Neutral Start Switch. Consideration for the
placement of a starter inhibit relay is important as well and should be connected to the ignition switch side
of the Yellow Start Wire.
To test the integrity of the Neutral Start Safety Circuit:
1)
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
Set the vehicle parking brake.
Block the drive wheels to prevent vehicle movement.
Temporarily disconnect the Brown/Black positive shut down wire from the vehicle's brake switch.
Sitting in the vehicle, start the engine using the vehicle's ignition key.
Step on the brake pedal and shift the gear selector into reverse.
Allow the transmission to shift. When you feel the engine pull, 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 RF transmitter in an attempt to start the vehicle.
The car should not start.
8) Repeat the above test this time move the gear selector to the drive position.
If the unit attempts to start, failing this test, recheck your Yellow Wire's connection. This wire must be
connected to the ignition switch side of the Neutral Start Switch. If the vehicle you are working on does
not have an Electrical Neutral Safety Switch, it will be necessary to reconfigure the Remote Starts Wiring
to accommodate the vehicle. The information concerning the Mechanical Neutral Safety Switch provided
below will help you to determine if the vehicle you are working on has this type of safety switch and will
provide alternate wiring methods to accommodate this situation.
CAUTION! REMEMBER TO RECONNECT THE BROWN/BLACK NEUTRAL SAFETY WIRE
TEMPORARILY DISCONNECTED IN STEP 3
MECHANICAL NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH CONSIDERATIONS:
Mechanical neutral safety switch configurations differ slightly in that they do not offer the same level of safety
when installing a remote start device. Often when the ignition switch is turned off while the gear selector
is in any position other than park or neutral, the mechanical function will not allow the key to be turned to
the start position or be removed from the ignition cylinder. This configuration prevents mechanical operation
while the vehicle is in gear but offers no consideration for electrical operation. Because of this potential
problem, this installation requires the additional connection of a safety wire from the remote start device to
the vehicle Park/Neutral ECM Input or the vehicle key in sensor. This connection will prevent remote start
operation if the key is left in the ignition switch regardless of the gear selectors position.
DO NOT RELEASE THIS VEHICLE TO THE CONSUMER UNTIL YOU CONFIRM THE OPERATION
OF THE MECHANICAL NEUTRAL SAFETY START FEATURE.

KEY IN SENSOR CIRCUITS:
If the vehicle you are working on does not have or you cannot locate the ECM reference wire, there are
two alternatives available. Although not preferred, the vehicle Key In Sensor may be reconfigured to allow
a margin of safety and will prevent the vehicle with a Mechanical Neutral Start Switch from starting in gear.
WE ADVISES THAT YOU MAINTAIN THE FACTORY CIRCUIT WHENEVER POSSIBLE. The following
two circuits may be used only if the above circuit is not available.
NOTE: When completing an installation using either of the following key in sensor circuits, if the operator
inserts the ignition key while the vehicle is running under the control of the Remote Start, the vehicle will
shut down. This must be explained to the operator as it is in contrast to the normal operation of a vehicle
utilizing an electrical neutral start switch and is inconsistent with the operators manual.
Additional information concerning Key In Sensor methods 1 & 2 are listed below and should be reviewed
before considering either alternative.
Method 1 will allow the safety required for the remote start unit and prevent the vehicle from starting while
in any gear other than Park or Neutral while the key is in the ignition cylinder however, if the key is left in
the ignition switch and the door is left opened, the added relay will be energized causing a 150mA drain
on the battery.
Method 2 will allow the safety required for the remote start unit and prevent the vehicle from starting while
in any gear other than Park or Neutral while the key is in the ignition cylinder however, the original factory
key in chime module will not alert the owner that the key has been left in the ignition switch. In addition,
this may also effect other warning tones such as the light on reminder.
These situations should be carefully considered before altering the vehicle's wiring and must be fully explained to the consumer.
