Remote Start Shutdown/Startup Diagnostics
Learning Hardwired or Data Tach (not needed with Virtual Tach)
If the remote start activates but fails to stay running, the remote start module has
the ability to inform you of what may have caused the remote start failure. Before
performing the shutdown diagnostics it is important that you let the remote start shut
off on its own i.e., let it attempt to start three times then shut down, if this is not done
and you press on the brake or use the remote, the unit will report the shutdown last
used to shut off the remote start.
To learn the tach signal:
1. Start the vehicle with the key.
2. Within five seconds, press and hold the Valet button.
3. After three seconds the LED will light constant when the tach signal is learned.
4. Release the Valet button and turn OFF the vehicle.
Important: This unit can learn the tachometer with the analog input or
through D2D using an interface module. The unit confirms which source
is used by flashing the parking lights.
When programming tach learning with:
• The analog Violet/White Tachometer input, the parking lights flash one time.
• A D2D interface module, the parking lights flash twice.
If the analog tachometer input on the system is connected to the vehicle, the D2D
tachometer input will be ignored.
Initializing Virtual Tach (not needed w/hardwire and data tach inputs)
Note: Virtual Tach is not recommended for diesel vehicles.
To program Virtual Tach:
1. After the install is complete, remote start the car.
2. If the car does not start on the first attempt, let the remote start attempt again
(three cranks may be required to start and run the engine).
3. Once the car starts, let the engine run for 30 seconds.
4. Use the remote control to shut OFF the remote start- that’s it! Virtual Tach is
programmed.
Virtual Tach handles disengaging the starter motor during remote starting – it does
not address over-rev. If the customer wants to have the over-rev protection capability, the tach wire must be connected.
Important: If the Virtual Tach mode over or under cranks, use the Bitwriter
to add or subtract the starter output time. You can adjust the output time
in increments of 50 milliseconds.
Reset and Deletion
If a feature/Virtual Tach needs to be reset or the remote controls need to be deleted,
use the following procedure.

Remote Start is disabled by Garage Mode. (see “Disabling the Remote Start System” section for more detail).
Disabling the Remote Start System/Garage Mode
Garage Mode is a safety feature that disables the remote start system if
the vehicle is parked in a garage, being serviced, or used by someone
unfamiliar with remote start systems.
When Garage Mode is ON, any attempt to start the engine, activate
Timer Mode, or enter Pit Stop mode is denied and remote start diagnostics
flashes the parking lights nine times.
Turn Garage Mode on or off:
1. Turn the ignition on then off.
2. Within 10 seconds, press and release the Valet button once.
3. The LED turns on.
4. The parking lights flash:
• Nine times quickly when turning on.
• Nine times slowly when turning off.

NOTE: Deleting a remote control does not reset the features or virtual tach, resetting
the features does not delete remote controls or reset virtual tach. The “Zap” feature
on the Bitwriter will not reset the virtual tach setting.

Turn the vehicle ignition to the ON position.
Within five seconds press and release the Valet button: two times to delete
remote controls, three times to reset the features to default or four times to reset
Virtual Tach.
Once you have selected the function step, press the Valet button once more
and hold it. The LED will flash and the horn (if connected) will honk to confirm
the functional step chosen. Do not release the Valet button.
Press the
button of a programmed remote control. The horn (if connected)
will honk confirming the feature has been reset/deleted.
Release the Valet button and turn OFF the the ignition. The horn (if connected)
honks to confirm exiting.
To perform shutdown diagnostics:
1. With the ignition OFF, press and hold the Valet button.
2. Turn the ignition ON and then back OFF while holding the Valet button.
3. Release the Valet button.
4. Press and release the Valet button. The LED flashes to report the last
shutdown for one minute or until the ignition is turned on, as shown in the
following table:

Reset/Delete will exit if:
• The ignition is turned OFF.
• There is no activity for 30 seconds.
• The Valet button is pressed too many times.
