IMPORTANT NOTICE
This remote starter with keyless entry system is designed to be
installed on fuel injected vehicles only.
• This system must be installed and wired through a safety switch
to assure that it will not start in any forward or reverse gear.
• Some automatic transmission vehicles [mainly older GM models
with a purple starter wire] have a mechanical-type park mechanism
instead of an electrical safety switch. The mechanical type does
not interrupt the starter circuit when the transmission is any gear
and does not offer the 100% level of safety required for remote
starting purposes. Therefore, you must create a circuit that will
prevent the remote starter from engaging when the key is in the
ignition.
• Once you install this system, you must verify that the vehicle will
not start any forward or reverse gear.
• Read the operation manual for operating and programming routine.
• Do not install any component near the brake, gas pedal or steering
linkage.
• Most vehicles have an SRS air bag system. Use extreme care and
do not probe any wires of the SRS system. These wires will almost
always be located inside a bright yellow tube located near the
steering wheel column.
• Check behind panels before drilling any holes. Ensure that no wiring
harness or other components are located behind the panels that
would otherwise be damaged.
• Do not use conventional crimp lock or bullet connectors on any
wiring.
• Do not disconnect the battery if the vehicle has an anti-theft radio
or is equipped with an airbag. Doing so may cause a warning light
to be displayed and the radio to stop functioning.
• Do not leave the interior or exterior lights on for an extended
period of time. Remove the dome light fuse from the vehicles fuse
box.
• Do not mount the control module until all connections have been
made and the unit is programmed and tested.
• Finally place the warning sticker under the hood when the installation
is completed.

WIRING CONNECTIONS
H1 6-PIN HEAVY GAUGE WIRING CONNECTIONS:
Remember that the system is designed to duplicate the same functions
of the ignition key switch! Since this installation will require analysis of
the ignition switch functions, we recommend making the H1 harness
connections directly to the ignition switch wires.
H1/1 VIOLET Wire—(Starter Crank Output)
Connect the VIOLET wire to the starter crank wire at the ignition switch
harness. This wire shows +12 volts when the ignition switch is turned
to the “start” or “crank” position only. This wire will test 0 volts in all
other ignition switch positions.
H1/2 and H1/3
RED Wires (2)-(+12V Power Input)
Remove the (2) two 20A fuses prior to connecting these wires and do
not replace them until the satellite harness has been plugged into the
control module. These two wires are the source of current for all the
circuits the relay satellite will energize. They must be connected to a
high current source. Since the factory supplies (+) 12V to the key switch,
it is recommended you make your connections there.
Note: If the factory supplies two separate (+) 12V feeds to the ignition
switch, connect (1) RED wire of the satellite to each feed at the switch.
H1/4 YELLOW Wire – (Ignition 1 Output)
Connect the YELLOW wire to the ignition 1 wire from the ignition switch.
The ignition wire should receive "12 volts" when the ignition key is in
the "on" and "start" or “crank” positions. When the ignition is turned
"off", the ignition wire should receive "0" voltage. The YELLOW wire
must be connected.
H1/5 PINK Wire – (Ignition 2 Output)
Some vehicles have 2 ignition wires that must be connected. Attach the
PINK wire to the ignition 2 wire from the ignition switch. The ignition
wire should receive "+12 volts" when the ignition key is in the "on" or
“run” and "start" or “crank” positions. When the ignition is turned to
the"off" position this wire will show "0" voltage. If the PINK wire is
not used, cap or tape the end of the wire.

.
.
WIRING CONNECTIONS
H1/6 BROWN Wire –Accessory Output (Heater /AC Output)
Connect the BROWN wire to the Accessory/Heater-Blower wire in the vehicle
that powers the Heater/AC system. The Accessory/Heater-Blower wire will
show “+ 12 volts” when the ignition switch is turned to the “accessory”(some
vehicle) “on” and “run” positions, and will show “0” volts when the key
is turned to the “off” and “start” or “crank” positions. On some vehicles,
there will often be more than one Accessory/Heater-Blower wire in the ignition
harness. The correct Accessory/Heater-Blower wire will power the vehicle’s
Heater/AC system. Note: Some vehicle may have separate wires for the
blower motor and the air conditioning compressor such as Ford products. In
such cases, it will be necessary to add a relay to power the second
Accessory/Heater-Blower wire, if your vehicle does not have a Ignition 2
wire, use the Ignition 2 Output (H1/5 PINK) wire from the remote starter
to power up the second Accessory/Heater-Blower wire.
H2 5-PIN WIRE HARNESS:
H2/1 RED / WHITE Wire (Parking Light Relay Input)
The RED/WHITE wire is the input for the parking light relay. This wire will
determine the output polarity of the parking light relay.
If your vehicle requires +12volts to power the parking light circuit you will
not need to connect this wire. This wire is already connected to the +12
volt constant red wire in the same harness.
If your vehicle’s parking light circuit operates on a switched ground then cut
the RED/WHITE wire from the RED wire and attach it directly to a ground
source. Note: Make sure to tape the RED wire at the cut location.
H2/2 WHITE Wire (Parking Light Relay Output)
Connect the WHITE wire to the wire that powers the parking light circuit on
the vehicle. The WHITE parking light wire is rated at 10amps max and should
not exceed this current. If your vehicles parking light system requires more
then 10amps you must add a relay to power the parking light system
H2/3 BLACK Wire (System Ground)
This is main ground connection of the control module. Make this connection
to a solid section of the vehicles frame ground.
H2/4 BROWN Wire (Horn Output) (Channel 4 Output) (Factory Default
setting)
The BROWN wire will provide a (-) negative output for the vehicles horn
or optional siren hookup.This wire is a transistorized low current 200mA
output, and should only be connected to the low current ground output from
the vehicle's horn switch. (See alarm feature #1 programming chart.)

system)
This wire is designed to rearm a factory installed security system. This
wire will supply a (-) negative pulse whenever the remote start times
out or is shut down using the remote transmitter.
Note: Factory default for the brown wire is the horn output. To program
for factory rearm. (See alarm feature #1 programming chart.)
H2/5 RED Wire (System +12volt Constant Power)
Connect the RED wire to a constant +12 volt source.
H3 2-PIN WHITE CONNECTOR FOR THE LED STATUS INDICATOR:
The led indicator status should be mounted in a highly visible area such
as top of the dashboard, on top of the shifter console or on dashboard
face. Leave at least 6mm space behind the mounting location for LED
housing. Once a suitable location is chosen, drill a 6mm hole. Run the
LED wires through the hole then press the 2 pin LED housing into the
place. Route the LED wires to the control module.
H4 5-PIN WHITE CONNECTOR:
H4/1 BLUE / BLACK Wire (Ignition 3 Output)
This wire provides a 200mA (-) negative ground output that becomes
active 4 seconds before the remote start unit initializes, and remains
grounded while running.
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, wire an IGN
3 relay (not supplied) as shown
below:Do not connect any vehicle
circuits together, they are isolated for a reason.

time the H1 VIOLET starter crank wire is active. This output can be
used to activate the bulb check wire found on GM vehicles with the
passlock 1 anti-theft system. This wire is also referred to as the ECM
wake up wire in some vehicles. Some Nissan and Chrysler vehicles require
a second starter crank for remote starting. You must use a relay when
using the BLACK/WHITE as a second start crank wire. (See alarm
feature #1 programming chart.)
H4/3 LT. GREEN / BLACK Wire (Step 2 Unlock and Factory Disarm
Output)
DUAL PULSE DOOR UNLOCK OUTPUT
The dual pulse door unlock feature will work for the most fully electronic

WIRING CONNECTIONS
FACTORY SECURITY DISARM SIGNAL OUTPUT –
(Factory Default Setting)
This wire is designed to disarm a factory installed security system. This
wire will provide a (-) negative 1 second pulse upon a remote start and
remote door unlocking. Some factory alarrm systems must be disarmed
first to allow remote starting. In most cases, this wire may be connected
directly to the factory alarm disarm wire. The correct wire will show
negative ground when the key is used to unlock the doors or trunk. This
wire is usually found in the kick panel area in the wiring harness coming
into the car body from the drivers door. (See alarm feature #1

H5/4 BROWN/RED (Positive Safety Shut Down or Brake Input)
This wire provides an instant shutdown for the remote starter whenever
it recieves +12volts.Connect this wire to the output or cold side of the
brake switch that shows +12volts only when the brake is pressed. See
below diagram
This wire provides an instant shutdown for
the remote start, whenever it receives
+12volts. If the brake lights switch in the
vehicle switches +12 volts to the brake light circuit,
connect this 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 gear, the brake pedal must be depressed. The brake input
will in turn cause the remote start unit to shut off. (See diagram.)
Manual Transmission: When you are in manual transmission gear mode,
you also need to connect the BROWN / RED wire to the emergency or
handbrake switch. An isolation diode must be used for handbrake circuit
and brake light circuit. Most handbrake wires will show +12V at rest when
the ignition is on and ground when you set the handbrake. However, if the
handbrake wire shows 0V while the handbrake is at rest, you will need to
add a relay as shown in the diagram below.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Directly connect the Thin BLACK wire to ground
when not being used.
H5/6 VIOLET / WHITE Wire (Tach. Input or Oil Sensor Connection)
(Tach Input Connection)
Note: No connection of this wire is required, if you are using the voltage
checking type mode.
This input provides the remote start system with information about the
engine’s revolutions per minute (RPM). It can be connected to the negative
side of the coil in vehicle with conventional coils.
To test for a tachometer wire, a multi-meter capable of testing AC voltage
must be used. The tach wire will show between 1V and 6V AC at idle,
and will increase as the engine RPM increases. In multi-coil ignition
systems, the control module can learn individual coil wires.
IMPORTANT! Do not test for tach wires with a test light or logic probe.
How to find a tach wire with your multi-meter
1. Set the ACV or AC voltage (12V or 20V is fine.)
2. Attach the (-) probe of the meter to chassis ground.
3. Start and run the vehicle.
4. Probe the wire you suspect of being the tach wire with the red probe
of the meter.
5. If this is the correct wire the meter will read between 1V and 6V.

TESTING YOUR INSTALLATION
Caution!! The follow procedure must be performed after the installation
of the 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.
1. Test the brake shutdown circuit: With the vehicle in park (P), start the
vehicle using the remote transmitter. Once the engine is running, press
the brake pedal. The vehicle should shut down immediately. If the vehicle
continues to run, check the brake circuit BROWN/RED wire (H5/4)
connection.
2. Test the hood safety shutdown circuit: Start the vehicle using the remote
transmitter. Once the engine is running, pull the hood release and raise
the hood. The vehicle should shut down immediately. If the vehicle
continues to run, check the hood pin GREY wire (H5/3) connection.
NEUTRAL START SAFETY TEST:
1. Set the vehicle parking brake.
2. Block the drive wheels to prevent vehicle movement.
3. Sitting in the vehicle, turn the ignition switch to on or run position, but
do not start the engine.
4. Step on the brake pedal and shift the gear selector into “DRIVE” (D).
5. Put your foot over the brake pedal but do not press down on it. Be ready
to step on the brake to shut down the remote start device.
30
.
.
TESTING YOUR INSTALLATION
6. Start the vehicle using the remote transmitter.
a. If the starter does not engage, the test is complete.
b. If the starter engages, immediately step on the brake pedal to shut
down the system and check your VIOLET wire H1/1 starter output
connection. The heavy gauge VIOLET wire must be connected to the
ignition switch side of the neutral safety 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
this 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.
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 removed from the ignition
cylinder. This configuration prevents mechanical operation while the vehicle
is in gear but offers no consideration for the electrical operation. Because
of this potential problem, your 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 wire. This connection will prevent
remote start operation if the key is left in the ignition switch regardless of
the gear selector position.
PARK/NEUTRAL ECM INPUT:
The Park/Neutral ECM input is the preferred method of installation. This not
only maintains the integrity of the factory circuit but is also is the easiest
to install, providing the vehicle you are working on has this ECM input.
The installation required for this application (shown below), is a slight
reconfiguration of the control switch wiring. Shown is a typical GM Park/Neutral
ECM input circuit. To connect the remote start unit to the GM Park/Neutral
ECM input:
1. Locate the ORANGE/BLACK reference wire in the “C2” connector found
at the ECM in GM B Body vehicles or, locate the equivalent reference
wire in the vehicle you are installing the remote start unit in.
2. Connect the thin BLACK Neutral Safety Switch wire (H5/5) to this
reference wire.
31
.
.
TESTING YOUR INSTALLATION
NOTE: If the optional remote starter enable toggle switch is installed,
connect the one side of the switch to this reference wire the other side of
to the thin BLACK Neutral Safety Switch wire (H5/5) of the remote start
unit. The reference diagram below shows a typical GM B Body ECM reference
wire and how to connect it to the remote start unit.
H5/5
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 ADVISE 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 operator’s manual.
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.
32
.
.
TESTING YOUR INSTALLATION
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 affect other warning tones such as the
light on reminder.
Note:
Additional information concerning key in sensor methods 1 and 2 are listed
below and should be reviewed before considering either alternative.
METHOD 1
H5/3
To connect to the key in sensor as shown in method 1:
A. Locate the control wire that connects the driver’s door pin switch to the
key in sensor switch.
B. Cut this wire and connect the ignition cylinder side to a chassis ground.
C. Locate the key in sensor switch wire that connects the chime module to
the ignition cylinder.
D. Cut this wire and connect the ignition cylinder side to terminal 30 of a
P&B VF45F11 or equivalent relay.
E. Connect the cathode (striped) side of a 4003 series diode to this same
wire, and connect the (non striped) side to the negative safely input wire
(GREY) (H5/3) of the remote start unit.
F. Connect terminal 86 of the relay to a fused + 12 volt constant battery
source.
G. Connect terminal 87 of the relay to the chime module side of the previously
cut wire in step D.
H. Connect terminal 85 of the relay to the driver’s door side of the pin switch
wire previously cut in step B.
33
.
.
TESTING YOUR INSTALLATION
Note: A second 4003 series diode may be required to maintain the integrity
of the hood open, shut down circuit. If this is the case, it must be installed
as shown in the diagram above. The anode (Non Stripped) side must be
connected to the GREY wire (H5/3) of the remote start unit. The cathode
(Striped) side must be connected to the hood pin switch.
METHOD 2
H5/3
To connect to the key in sensor circuit as shown for method 2:
A. Locate the control wire that connects the driver’s door pin switch to the
key in sensor switch.
B. Cut this wire and connect the ignition cylinder side to chassis ground.
C. Locate the key in sensor switch wire that connects the chime module to
the ignition cylinder.
D. Cut this wire and connect the ignition cylinder side to the Remote Start
Negative Safety Shut down wire GREY (H5/3), using a 4003 series
diode as shown above.
Note: A second 4003 series diode may be required to maintain the
integrity of the hood open, shut down circuit. If this is the case, it must be
installed as shown in the diagram above. The anode (Non Striped) side
must be connected to the GREY wire (H5/3) of the remote start unit. The
cathode (Striped) side must be connected to the hood pin switch.
AFTER THE CONNECTION OF THE NEUTRAL START SAFETY WIRE AS
INDICATED IN ANY OF THE PREVIUOS ALTERNATE CONFIGURATINS,
THIS CIRCUIT MUST BE TESTED FOR OPERATION.
Retest by following the steps outlined in the NEUTRAL START SAFETY
TEST shown in this manual.
