Included in the Kit
Please review the installation guide before beginning the installation, especially the wiring diagram and the
programming options. It is very important that you familiarize yourself with the programming and operation of
the system, even if you have already installed an alarm system in the past. There are many great new features
that may be overlooked if the manual is not read: You would therefore not maximize the unit’s potential. Prior to
the installation, make sure that all the hardware components required to install the system are in the box.

Installation Points to Remember
o When working on a vehicle always leave a
window open.
o Never leave the keys in the car. Leave them
on a workbench with a window rolled down.
o If possible, remove the courtesy light fuse to
prevent battery drain.
o Inspect the vehicle for any body damage or
electrical problems.
o Make sure that all the switches and controls
operate properly.
o Verify that the vehicle starts and idles
properly.
o Never install a control unit where it could
interfere with normal operation or obstruct
service technicians.
o Do not disconnect the battery on vehicles
equipped with air bags and anti-theft radios.
o Always use a grommet when running wires
into the engine compartment.
o Never run wires through bare or sharp metal.
o Always solder and tape all connections.
o Never ground the control unit to the steering
column of the vehicle.
o When you probe /test the wires of a harness,
make sure you check the plug-in connector.
o The wires for the air bags are not always
identified on the harness (split loom or a
yellow tape). However they are always
identified on the connector.
o Keep the transceiver away from other types of
antennas (GPS/Onstar).
o Make sure all security equipment is installed:
The Valet switch, the hood pin and the
warning label.
Programmable Features
The unit was designed with flexibility and OEM integration in mind. The system gives installers the output
flexibility that every good installer is looking for; this unit can be customized and used for almost every possible
application.
With the integration of timed latched and ON / OFF outputs, this unit can single-handedly control virtually any
electrical system in the car.
The programmable features are as follows:
1. Siren or OEM Horn Output
• The system can be programmed either to control the OEM horn or to command an external high-power
siren.
2. Siren / Horn Chirp Timing
• This feature allows you to configure the duration of the horn/siren chirps generated by the system. The
horn/siren chirp duration can be set to any length between 10 ms and 250 ms.
3. Ignition-Controlled Door Locks
• OFF by default. This feature will LOCK all the Doors of the vehicle while the Ignition Key is in the IGNITION
ON (RUN) position and only when all the doors are closed (there is no recurrence of this action). The unit
will UNLOCK all Doors when the Ignition Key is turned back to the OFF position.
• If Ignition Lock Only is selected, the system will only LOCK all Doors while the Ignition Key is in the
IGNITION ON (RUN) position and only when all the doors are closed (there is no recurrence of this action).
• If option Ignition Unlock Only is selected, the system will UNLOCK all Doors when the key is turned to
the OFF position (provided that the Ignition key was in the IGNITION ON (RUN) position).
4. Passive or Active Arming
• (Passive with a 1-min. time out by default.) The alarm system on this unit can be set to active mode (in
which it will not arm itself automatically) or to passive mode (arms itself automatically) with a 1-minute
timeout.
5. Door Lock Pulse Duration
• (¾-sec. lock and ¾-sec. unlock pulses by default.) This system can be programmed to give either 3.5sec. lock /unlock pulses (this is used to control vacuum door-lock system, for instance on Mercedes) or a
single ¾ -sec. lock pulse with a double ¼-sec. unlock pulse (this is used for double-pulse disarm/unlock
systems, as in the Maxima, Pathfinder, and Volkswagen…)
6. Relock
• If you unlock the doors with the remote transmitter, but do not open any door or trunk within 60 seconds,
the doors will automatically relock.

Dome Light Delay
When the doors are being closed and the vehicle is armed, the module will check the dome light to detect
whether a door has been left open. If the dome light is on, the system will generate three chirps to warn the
user that a door has been left open (There is one chirp if Mode 1 – Function 5 – Option 2 is selected)
Retain Accessory Output
Retain Accessory output is activated as soon as key is turned to the ON position. When the key goes from ON
to OFF position, the accessory output stays ON and a countdown period of 10 minutes is set. The output is
turned OFF after 10 minutes or if a door is opened anytime during the countdown period.
Note: The Accessory Output is also turned off while starting the car.
Zone 2 Disable Output
The unit is equipped with a zone-2 disable output that can be used to immobilize the vehicle when the system is
armed. Zone-2 disable operates in addition to the built-in starter kill.
The unit will give a negative output when the system is armed (locked by remote); this wire can therefore
control an external relay to interrupt the fuel pump or the Ignition.
The starter kill circuit can be configured to passive mode (to arm automatically) with a 1-minute timeout.
Otherwise it can be configured to active mode (in which it must be armed by the user).
Note: Installation of a 2nd-zone disable requires an external relay (not included!).
Multi-car Operation
This allows the user to control two systems with one transmitter. (Both vehicles must be equipped with identical
modules)
The remote transmitter of the primary vehicle can control the starter kill system, the door lock and unlock
operations of the second vehicle. The remote transmitter of the second vehicle can also operate the primary
vehicle.
*To program a transmitter for a second vehicle under multi-car operation, you must press on
transmitter in step 4 of transmitter programming procedure (see page 4).
button of the
Resetting the Module
The system is equipped with a reset function that allows the installer to erase all transmitter codes and return all
programming options to their factory defaults.
To reset the module:
1.
Flash the hood pin switch (see on page 4) - the parking lights will stay on for up to 20 seconds.
2.
Immediately press and release the valet button 5 times.
3.
The parking lights will flash 8 times upon reset.
Note: After a reset has been performed, the system will set all options back to their default values (see the
programming page for default values) and all transmitters will need to be programmed again.

Closing Up
Use tie-wraps or screws to properly secure the starter Module and keep the wiring away from any moving parts
such as the Parking Brakes or Steering Column Shafts. Mount all switches in good and accessible locations
where they do not risk getting kicked or hit accidentally.
Most comebacks are the result of misunderstandings about how a product works or performs. Take the time to
properly explain all functions and features to the customers before they leave the premises. Doing this will save
time and money.
Always make all your connections before plugging in the Module, and be sure to test all functions properly
before closing up the installation.
