Installation Points to Remember
♦ When installing a manual-transmission
product on a vehicle with a manual
Transmission, always make sure that all
Doors will get the Unit out of Ready Mode.
Switch the wire used so that it is triggered by
all Doors.
♦ When installing a manual-transmission
product on a vehicle with a manual
Transmission, make sure that the Parking
Brake and Door Switch contacts work
properly.
♦ When working on a vehicle, always leave a
window open.
♦ Never leave the keys in the car. Leave them
on a workbench with a window rolled down.
♦ If possible, remove courtesy light fuse to
prevent battery drain.
♦ The PROGRAMMING ASSISTANCE BUTTON (PAB)
The PAB is mounted on the side of the
Remote Car Starter unit and fulfils the same
function as the Hood-Pin Switch. The PAB
will spare installers the effort of getting out of
the vehicle to access the Hood-Pin Switch.
The PAB works only when the Hood is up.
♦ Inspect vehicle for any body damage or
electrical problems
♦ Always solder and tape all connections.
♦ Keep the Antenna away from other types of
antennas (GPS/OnStar).
PS-3085SH Installation Guide
♦ Never install the control unit where it could

Harness Description
When connecting a Remote Car Starter, it is important to make sure that the connector with the
Ground wire is connected first, before making the 12-volt connections. Should the Unit be powered
up before being grounded, there could be serious damage to internal components of the Unit.
Be careful not to power up a Remote Car Starter before it is properly grounded. To avoid any
accident, it is recommended to pull out the Fuses from their sockets before the installation, and to
put them back during the very last steps.

This wire will allow the Remote Car Starter to
sense whether the Engine is running. The wire
requires at least 1.8 V (AC) and 1.6 Hz or faster
when the Engine runs at idle speed. Among
common references for the Tach wire are: the
negative side of the Ignition Coil, the Camshaft
sensor, the Crankshaft sensor or the Engine
Control Module (ECM).
Note: if the Tach signal is too low, the Remote
Car Starter will “over-crank”. Conversely, if the
Tach signal is too high, the Remote Car Starter
will “under-crank”.
Connect this wire to the installed Hood Pin switch
supplied. This input will disable or shut down the
Remote Starter when the Hood is up.
This wire must be connected to the Brake Light
wire of the vehicle. This wire must have +12 V
only when the Brake Pedal is down. This input
will shut down the Remote Starter if the Brake
Pedal is pressed.
This wire provides a +12 V output and must be
connected on the vehicle to the Parking Lights
wire that tests +12 V when the Light switch is in
the ON position.
Note: ensure that the voltage does not decrease
or increase when the dimmer control switch is
turned. If the voltage goes up or down, find
another Parking Light wire.

control). It can be connected to an external Starter
Interrupt Relay.
This wire should be connected to a Single Pole
Double-Throw Relay: this wire will connect to Pin 85
on the Relay, and Pin 86 will be connected to the
Ignition wire.
The Starter Kill output becomes active during
remote starts.
One benefit of the Starter Kill is the Anti-Grind
feature. Once the vehicle has been remote started,
the Anti-Grind prevents the Starter Motor from reengaging when the Ignition Key is inserted in the
Ignition Switch and accidentally turned to the
CRANK position.

When Running
The External Trigger wire can be used for remotestarting the vehicle with an external device. When
the vehicle is running, triggering this input will
activate Idle Mode. The External Trigger wire can
also be used to operate as a negative trigger with
the Trunk Pin-switch, the Key Sense wire or the
Door Pin-switch:
Option 1 Connects to Negative Trunk Pin. When
this wire is programmed for TRUNK PIN, pressing
TRUNK will activate a 1-second DISARM output. If
ground (-) is detected on the TRUNK PIN (the Trunk
has been opened), an ARM pulse will be sent 5
seconds after the Trunk is closes. An ARM pulse
will be sent 4 seconds after the TRUNK button is
pressed if the Trunk pin state is unchanged (The
Trunk was unopened). DISARM is sent only if the
system was previously locked and armed. If Secure
Lock is enabled, UNLOCK pulse(s) will be sent with
DISARM, a LOCK pulse and a REARM pulse will
be sent when the Trunk is closed or if the Trunk was
left closed.
Option 2 (Default: Engine Start/Stop): The first
Ground (-) pulse on this input will start the Engine,
the second Ground (-) pulse on this input will stop
the Engine.
Option 3 (Key Sense (-) Input): Connects to OEM
Key Sense Wire. When the Key is detected in the
Ignition Switch (Ground (-) signal on the OEM Key
Sense Wire) the Starter Kill will not ARM even when
it is set to Passive Mode. If Secure Lock is
programmed, LOCK and ARM will not be activated
while the Key Sense input is active (“active”
meaning there is a key in the Ignition barrel).
This wire provides a constant 500 mA ground output
while the Remote Car Starter is running. This output
becomes active at the same time as the Ignition and
shuts off when the Remote Car Starter shuts down,
e.g.: when the Run Time has expired, when the
STOP button has been pressed, etc. This output
can be used to activate external relays, bypass kits,
etc..

another: feedback may otherwise occur, causing
damage to the vehicle.
This input should be used in vehicles with negativeswitching Door pins or Dome Light circuits. Connect
to the Dome Light wire that tests ground when a Door
is open.
Caution! The installer should use either the positive

In Diesel Mode, this positive input will monitor the
Glow Plug Light: it will wait for up to 18 seconds
until the Glow-plug Light goes out before allowing
the Remote Car Starter to proceed to cranking the
Engine. Connect to the side of the Glow-plug Light
which is positive when the Light is on.

(Also known as the “wait-to-start light”.) The
purpose of the Glow-plug circuit on diesel vehicles
is to pre-heat the Combustion Chamber before the
vehicle is started.
When a Remote Starter is installed on a diesel
vehicle, the Glow-plug section of the Ignition
circuit must be activated and allowed to operate
before the vehicle is remote-started. For that
purpose, the Glow-plug input wire of the Remote
Car Starter must be connected to the Glow-plug
indicator light of the vehicle.
Caution! The Remote Car Starter will only accept
positive Glow-plug input signals, therefore
negative Glow Plugs should only be connected
using relays to invert the polarity.
A diode must be added between the negative
Glow-plug trigger on the relay and the negative
Glow-plug wire of the car. This is to prevent
feedback effects on the Glow-plug indicator light
on the instrument cluster: the light on the dash
would come on because of the feedback, even
though the circuit is off.
When the user remote-starts the vehicle:
• The Remote Car Starter will power up the
Ignition circuit and wait to engage the Starter
Motor while the Glow-plug indicator light is still
on.
• The Remote Car Starter will engage the Starter
Motor as soon as the Glow-plug light (+) goes
out.

o Maximum waiting time is 18 seconds.
If no Glow-plug wire is found on the vehicle, the
Glow-plug input on the Remote Car Starter may
be “timed out”. The Remote Car Starter will power
up the Ignition and Glow-plug circuits and simply
wait for the time-out before starting:
• Connecting the Glow-plug input wire of the
Remote Car Starter to Ignition will hold the
ignition ON for the maximum waiting time (18
sec., recommended).
• Keeping the Glow-plug input wire of the Remote
Car Starter unconnected will hold the ignition
ON for the minimum waiting time (3 sec., not
recommended in very cold environments).
Connect the Glow-plug wire to the Ignition wire
only after the Tach programming has been
completed: connecting the Glow-plug wire is one
of the very last steps in the installation process.

Flashing the Hood Pin Switch
Flashing the Hood Pin switch is a procedure that brings the Remote Car Starter into Programming
Mode. Once the Remote Car Starter is in Programming Mode, the installer will have up to
20 seconds to select one of the sub-menus. If the installer fails to select a sub-menu before the 20second delay, the Remote Car Starter will exit Programming Mode and the installer will have to
flash the Hood Pin switch once more.
Tip
As long as the Hood is up, you may use the
Programming Assistance Button instead of the Hood
Pin switch.

Remember:
Once the Parking Lights are ON (solid), you have up to 20 seconds to select a sub-menu. If you do
not select a sub-menu within 20 seconds, the Remote Car Starter will exit Programming Mode and
you will have to flash the Hood Pin switch once again.
The Programming Assistance Button
(A.k.a. the PAB.) Mounted on the Remote Car
Starter, this button can be used from within the
vehicle instead of the Hood Pin switch in the
Engine compartment. This will spare the
installer the trouble of accessing the Hood Pin
switch in the Engine compartment.
Caution
The Hood Pin switch must be installed and connected in order for the Programming Assistance Button
to function. The button will work only when the
Hood is up.
Programming a Transmitter
Before you Proceed
The Transmitter of the Remote Car Starter is not delivered pre-programmed: it must be
programmed after the wiring of the Remote Car Starter is completed. The Remote Car Starter has
the ability to retain up to 4 different Transmitter codes; if a fifth Transmitter is code-programmed,
the code of the first Transmitter will be lost from memory. To erase all Transmitter codes from
P. 12
Installation Guide PS-3085SH
memory, you must perform a reset of the Remote Car Starter (see Resetting the Remote Car
Starter, later in this Guide, for more details).
The Transmitter Programming Procedure
1. Flash the Hood Pin switch (see Table 1)
– The Parking Lights will stay ON for up to 20 seconds.
– Before the lights go out, turn the Ignition Key to the IGNITION ON (RUN) position.
– Immediately turn the Ignition Key back to the OFF position.
2. Press and hold the LOCK button and keep it down until the Parking Lights flash
5 times quickly.
– The Remote Car Starter has stored the code of the Transmitter into memory.
3. To exit: close the Hood.
Table 2: Programming a Transmitter
To program a Transmitter on the second vehicle for Multi-car Operation, you must press the
TRUNK and LOCK buttons simultaneously (instead of LOCK or UNLOCK) in step 3 of the Transmitter
code-learning procedure:
Entering Programming Options Mode
The Remote Car Starter is equipped with three custom programming Modes that allow the installer
to custom-fit the system outputs according to installation requirements. The Programming Options
are designed to facilitate interfacing with all vehicle types. (See section Table of Programming
Options later in this Guide.)
1. Flash the Hood Pin switch (see Table 1)
– The Parking Lights will stay ON for up to 20 seconds.
– Before the lights go out:
2. Press and hold the Brake Pedal,
– And press one of the following buttons on the Transmitter:
• LOCK..................to access Mode 1;
• UNLOCK..............to access Mode 2;
• TRUNK ................to access Mode 3.
The Parking Lights will flash and the Horn will honk once, twice or three times to
confirm entry into a Mode.
3. Release the Brake Pedal.

Tach Programming
About Tach Programming
If you press the START button before carrying out a Tach Programming procedure, the Remote Car
Starter will make no attempt to start the Engine and the Parking Lights will give 5 flashes.
If order to carry out Tach Programming, you may simply follow the Automatic Tach Programming
procedure.
The Remote Car Starter stores Tach settings regardless of the procedure used at the time of Tach
programming. All Tach settings are cleared when the Remote Car Starter is reset. A new Tach
Programming procedure has to be carried out only if the Remote Car Starter is reset.
Multi-speed Tach Programming
Tach signals may vary from vehicle to vehicle. The Remote Car Starter is designed to read a wide
range of Tach signals produced by recent Ignition systems. There is no necessary manual
PS-3085SH Installation Guide
P. 15
adjustment. Nevertheless, a Tach-programming procedure must be carried out every time a new
Remote Car Starter Unit is installed. This is because the Tach signals of certain Ignition systems
are sometimes too low or too high for the Remote Car Starter, causing failed start-ups at various
temperatures.
1. Flash the Hood Pin switch (see Table 1)
– The Parking Lights will stay ON for up to 20 seconds.
– Before the lights go out:
2. Press and hold the Brake Pedal,
– And simultaneously press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the Transmitter:
– The Parking Lights will flash 4 times.
– Release the Brake Pedal.
3. Start up the Engine and allow the vehicle to reach regular Engine idle speed.
4. Once the Engine is running idle, press the Brake Pedal and keep it down until you
hear the Parking Lights Output flash 5 times.
– Release the Brake Pedal: Tach Programming is now complete.
Table 5: Multi-speed Tach Programming
Note
The L.E.D. follows the Parking Lights during the
Transmitter Programming procedure.
At any time, close the Hood to end the Tachprogramming procedure.
Automatic Tach Programming
This simple procedure can replace the Multi-speed Tach Programming procedure:
1. Make sure that all the connections are properly made and that the Remote Car
Starter is powered up.
2. With the Hood up (ground on the Hood Pin switch line), start the vehicle using the
Key.
3. Allow the vehicle to reach regular Engine idle speed.
The Parking Light output from the Remote Car Starter will activate when the
vehicle starts and shut off once a Tach signal is detected.
4. Press the Brake Pedal and keep it down until you hear the Parking Lights Output
flash 5 times.
5. Shut down the Engine. Tach Programming is now complete.
Table 6: Automatic Tach Programming
Horn Honk Timing
Follow these steps to program Horn Confirmation:
1.

a. To increase the Horn pulse by 3 ms, press the LOCK button.
b. To decrease the pulse by 3 ms, press the UNLOCK button.
c. To increase the pulse by 10 ms, press the START or STOP button.
d. To decrease the pulse by 10 ms, press the TRUNK button.
5. To save the new settings: press LOCK and UNLOCK. If 3 honks are returned the new
settings have been saved.
Table 9: Adjusting Honk Duration
Otherwise close the Hood to cancel the changes.
For each timing change, the Horn will honk with the new settings, except in the
following cases:
• When the lower limit of 5 ms is reached, there will be a 1/4-sec. honk.
• When the upper limit of 200 ms is reached, there will be a 3/4-sec. honk.
A system reset will set the Remote Car Starter back to the default values: 30 ms.
Testing
Before putting back the vehicle together, it is recommended to check that the system operates
properly. The following testing procedures should be used to verify proper installation and
operation of the system. Before testing, make sure that all connections are soldered and that the
unit is plugged in.
‰ Make sure the Remote Car Starter properly enters and exits Ready Mode:
Setting the system to Ready Mode
1. Ensure that all the Doors are closed and that the Gear Shift Lever is in the NEUTRAL
position.
2. With the Engine already running, apply the Parking Brake and release the Brake
Pedal.
Make sure to release the Brake Pedal.
3. Within 20 sec. push LOCK, UNLOCK or START on the Transmitter.
The Parking Lights will flash 3 times quickly and remain lit.
4. Remove the key: the Engine will go on running.
5. Exit the vehicle and close the Door.
6. Press and hold either:
a. LOCK to lock the Doors and shut down the Engine or enter Turbo Mode ;
b. UNLOCK to unlock the Doors and shut down the Engine or enter Turbo Mode ;

Remaining in ready Mode
Once the vehicle is in Ready Mode, you can start and stop the vehicle at wish.
However, should any one of the following occur, the vehicle will exit Ready Mode, thus
disabling remote start capabilities until Ready Mode is restored:
• Door opened,
• Hood opened,
• Brake pedal pressed,
• Parking Brake disengaged,
• Ignition Key turned to the IGNITION ON (IGNITION ON / RUN) position.
Should any of the above occur, Ready Mode will be cancelled.

Mode. When setting the Remote Car Starter into Valet Mode, pressing the Lock button
will lock the Doors without activating the Starter Kill. (Refer to the User Guide for further
information on Valet Mode.)
‰ Idle Mode. Make sure the Vehicle properly enters and exits Idle Mode.
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.
Closing Up
Use tie-wraps or screws to properly secure the Remote Car Starter 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.

Supplementary Information
Fifth Relay Output (2nd IGN, ACC or CRANK)
Remote Car Starters of this series are equipped
with an on-board high-current programmable 5th
Relay that can be used to power a second
Ignition, Accessory or Crank wire.
The Unit uses 3 sets of pins; each set
corresponds to a specific function of the output.
In order to activate one of the three possible
functions, you must place the Jumper
(supplied) on one of the three sets of pins and
connect the 14 AWG wire to the second IGN. /
ACC. / CRANK wire of the vehicle.
Caution!
Only one set of pins can be used at one time.
Using more than one Jumper may result in serious
damage to the vehicle.
The relay output rating on this unit is 25 A at most.
Defective OEM solenoid switches can sometimes
draw up to 50 or 60 A, causing the 30 A Fuse to
blow. Always verify your circuit with an appropriate
measuring device.
Clutch bypass
In order to remote start a manual-Transmission vehicle, the Clutch switch must be bypassed.
Clutch safety switch circuits can take many forms. The most common types are listed below. When
testing to determine the type of Clutch circuit, it is recommended that you use a computer-safe
logic probe. Some vehicles may also have a separate or combined switch on the Clutch pedal for
cruise control. Usually, a cruise-control switch reacts at the moment you touch the pedal, whereas
a Clutch switch reacts only when the pedal is near the floor. Once the circuit type is determined,
you must recreate, with the Remote Car Starter, the electrical interaction occurring at the switch in
order to bypass the Clutch at the moment of remote starts. Relays are often used to accomplish
this. Always use the Ground Out When Running (G.O.) wire as the negative trigger on your Clutch
bypass relays, as it is only active during remote starts.
Never carry out a permanent Clutch switch bypass. Do not attempt a bypass at all if you are
unfamiliar with the use of relays and diode isolation.
Before any Hot Wiring attempts:
Test and record the way each wire tests in the following positions:
With the pedal up:
test the wire with the Ignition Key in the OFF position
test the wire with the Key in the IGNITION ON (RUN) position
PS-3085SH Installation Guide
P. 19
test the wire with the Key in the START position
With the pedal down:
test the wire with the Ignition Key in the OFF position
test the wire with the Key in the IGNITION ON (RUN) position
test the wire with the Key in the START position
With this information for every wire at the switch, determining what type of clutch switching system
you have will be easy.
Direct Feed:
The simplest type of system to test and bypass is the “Direct Feed” system. This circuit simply
interrupts the +12 V signal starter wire from the Ignition switch to the starter solenoid. There are 2
wires in this circuit, the “key side” wire which goes from the clutch pedal to the Ignition switch, and
the “solenoid side” which goes from the clutch switch to the starter motor. When the key is turned
to the START position without pressing the pedal, you will test 12 V only on one of the wires at the
clutch switch, this is the key side. When the pedal is pressed down, and the key is the crank
position, the other wire will now also read 12 V, this is the solenoid side wire. To confirm you have
a direct feed clutch switch, hot wire the “solenoid side” wire with fused +12 V, and the starter motor
will crank. Connect the starter output from the Remote Car Starter to the Solenoid side of the wire.
Note:
In the next two systems a Relay in the vehicle interrupts the start wire between the Ignition switch
and the starter motor. With the in the START position, and the clutch pedal pressed, the relay
energizes and allows the START signal to reach the starter motor. In these systems a wires from
the clutch triggers the relay, when the pedal is pressed. There will be another wire at the clutch
switch that supplies the signal to the trigger wire (either positive or negative, depending on the
system)
Negative Systems:
In a Negative system, when the clutch is pressed; a negative signal is sent to the relay, the relay
energizes, when the Key is turned to the START position the 12 V from the start wire is allowed to
pass through the relay and to starter motor. One of the wires at the clutch will test as negative, this
is the supply wire. The relay's negative trigger wire will only show negative when the pedal is
pressed ( some vehicle's also require the Ignition system to be powered). To confirm you have a
Negative system, hot wire the negative trigger wire by jumping it to a ground source with your
fused test jumper. You should now be able to turn the key to the START position and engage the
start motor, with out pressing in the clutch pedal. If there is nothing else connected to the Ground
Out When Running (G.O.) wire from the Remote Car Starter, the G.O. wire should be strong
enough to trigger the vehicle's clutch relay . If there are other devices or modules connected to the
G.O. Wire, a relay ( and diodes) may have to added to strengthen the negative current going to the
clutch bypass.
Positive Systems:
Very similar to the negative system, except that the vehicle's clutch relay is trigger by 12 V, instead
of a negative signal. In a Positive system, when the clutch is pressed; a positive (12 V) signal is
sent to the relay, the relay energizes, when the Key is turned to the START position the 12 V from
the start wire is allowed to pass through the relay and to starter motor. One of the wires at the
clutch will test as 12 V, this is the supply wire. The relay's positive trigger wire will only show
positive when the pedal is pressed (some vehicle's also require the Ignition system to be powered).
To confirm you have Positive system, hot wire the positive trigger wire by jumping it to a 12 V
source with your fused test jumper. You should now be able to turn the key to the START position
and engage the start motor, without pressing in the clutch pedal. A relay is needed to send 12 V to
the trigger wire from the Remote Car Starter during start attempts.
P. 20
Installation Guide PS-3085SH
Note on N/C systems:
There are different types of this system used by various vehicle manufactures, the following is used
to illustrate how these systems work in general.
Normally Closed (N/C) Systems:
In the previous two examples, the clutch was bypassed by engaging the clutch relay. In an N/C
system, a relay is also used to interrupt the starter wire. In order to bypass an N/C Clutch, one
must prevent the Clutch relay from engaging.
If the pedal is not pressed, when the Ignition Key is turned to the START position, the relay
energizes and interrupts the start wire. If the pedal is pressed, when the Ignition Key is turned to
the START position, the relay does not energize and the START signal reaches the Starter Motor.
In an N/C system, the supply wire is connected to the trigger wire of the relay at rest (Pedal not
pressed). When the Pedal is pressed, the connection is broken between the supply wire and the
trigger wire of the relay (disengaging the relay). To verify that you have a N/C system disconnect
the clutch switch, and the vehicle should start without the clutch pedal being pressed. When you
test the trigger wire with your logic probe, the trigger wire will test as 12 V or negative when the
pedal is not pressed, it should read as an open circuit ( or Float) when the pedal is pressed.
Please note:
Your probe may also show feed back from the other
end of the circuit. The Polarity of the Trigger wire
does not matter in this system: all you need to do in
order to bypass it is to use a relay to interrupt this
wire during remote starts.
Ignition-controlled Door Locks
This feature will LOCK all the Doors of the vehicle when the Brake Pedal is pressed while the
Ignition Key is in the IGNITION ON (RUN) position. 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 when the Brake Pedal is
pressed while the Ignition Key is in the IGNITION ON (RUN) position.
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 and that the
Brake Pedal was pressed at least once).
Secure Lock
This feature allows the Remote Car Starter to control certain OEM factory Alarm systems without
requiring the use of other wires for disarming the OEM Alarm. (Namely, this feature is designed for
OEM systems which use the factory Lock wire to arm the Alarm and the Unlock wire to disarm it.)
Standard Secure Lock
If this Option is selected, upon receiving a remote START signal, Secure Lock will UNLOCK the Doors
(disarming the factory Alarm); 1/2 sec. after remote start Secure Lock will re-lock the Doors. 4
seconds after shutdown, Secure Lock will re-lock all Doors (arming the system once again).
Please note that most OEM systems will not rearm the Alarm while the Engine is running, but will
still lock the Doors.
Smart Secure Lock
If the vehicle is initially locked, upon remote START the Remote Car Starter will trigger an unlock
pulse and a disarm pulse before the Engine is started. The Remote Car Starter will LOCK again
when the Engine is running, and LOCK once again 4 seconds after shut-down.
PS-3085SH Installation Guide
P. 21
If the vehicle is initially unlocked, upon remote START the Remote Car Starter will start the Engine
and arm the Starter Kill, but the Doors will not be locked or unlocked at any moment of the
sequence.
Lock Pulse Duration
The duration of the Lock and Unlock pulses can be configured as follows:
•
(Default) 7/10-sec. LOCK and 7/10-sec. UNLOCK pulses
•
4-sec. LOCK/UNLOCK pulses to control vacuum Door Lock systems
•
A single 7/10-sec. LOCK pulse and two 1/4-sec. UNLOCK pulses
for double-pulse disarm/unlock systems.
•
1/10-sec. LOCK and 1/10-sec. UNLOCK pulses
Engine Run Time
Use this Function to configure the length of time the Engine will be left running under remote
control. The Remote Car Starter will allow the Engine to run for either 4, 15 or 25 min. in Gas Mode
and 9, 20 or 30 min. in Diesel Mode. Standard default Run Time is 15 minutes in Gas mode and 20
minutes in Diesel mode.
Starter Kill (Installation)
The Remote Car Starter is equipped with a selectable Passive or Active-arming Starter Kill
circuit that will prevent the vehicle from being started with the Ignition Key when the Remote Car
Starter is armed. The Starter Kill wire will provide a constant 500-mA. negative output when the
system is armed (locked by remote control) and can be connected to an external Starter or Ignition
interrupt relay (see diagram below).
The Starter Kill circuit can be set to arm in either Passive Mode or Active Mode
Caution!!!
When installing the Starter Kill, it is extremely important that pin 86 be wired to Ignition: do not
jump it to pin 30 (damage to the vehicle could result).
Note: Installation of the Starter Kill system requires an external relay. (Not included!)
Passive or Active Arming
(Passive arming by default.) The Remote Car Starter can be set to:
• Active Arming: the Starter Kill will not arm automatically. Press the LOCK button to
arm and the UNLOCK button to disarm it.
• Passive Arming: the Starter Kill will arm automatically if it is not armed by remote
within a 60-sec. delay. Press UNLOCK to disarm.
• Passive Arming with 3-minute timeout: the Starter Kill will arm automatically after
3 minutes.
Resetting the Remote Car Starter
The Remote Car Starter is equipped with a reset function that allows the installer to erase all
Transmitter codes from memory and return all the Programming Options to the factory default
values.
Resetting the Remote Car Starter is not a required process. Most of the time, you can avoid
resetting by fixing the issue directly at the root of the cause.
1. Flash the Hood Pin switch (see Table 1)
– Once inside Programming Mode, you have 10 seconds to complete the next step.
P. 22
Installation Guide PS-3085SH
2. Press and release the Break Pedal 6 times (within 10 seconds from entering
Programming Mode).
3. The Parking Lights will flash 8 times to confirm resetting.
Table 10: Resetting without a Valet Button
On some vehicles (such as BMW and certain Volkswagen vehicles), resetting will not work if the
Brake Pedal is pressed while the Ignition Key is not in the IGNITION ON (RUN) position: you will need
therefore to hot-wire the Brake Pedal by manually jumping 12 V with a fused test lead at the Brake
Pedal switch.
1. Flash the Hood Pin switch (see Table 1)
– Once inside Programming Mode, you have 10 seconds to complete the next step.
2. Press and release the Valet Button 6 times or more until the Parking Lights start to
flash.
3. The Parking Lights will flash 8 times to confirm resetting.
Table 11: Resetting with the Valet Button
Events Logging
With this feature, the Remote Car Starter will play back the last 4 Start Failure Events Codes and
the last Intrusion Code via the Parking Lights or L.E.D.
Events playback
Ensure that the Hood is up, that the vehicle is not in Valet Mode and that the Ignition is
OFF.
• Hold down the Hood Pin-switch for 4 seconds.
• Release the Pin-switch. The Parking Lights will come on.
• While the Parking Lights are on, immediately push the Pin-switch 3 more times
(down-up / down-up / down-up).
The Parking Lights and L.E.D. will flash the five events stored in memory.
Table 12: Events playback
The first four playback codes are Start Failure Events. There is a pause after each event code is
played back. The system will play back the most recent event first, then the second one, and so on.
If there is no event at all to report, the Parking Lights will give one long flash.
