YOUR “CODE HOPPING“ TRANSMITTERS
The transmitters included with your new remote start system use the most advanced and
secure form of radio frequency transmission available on any current automotive remote
system. Some of today’s sophisticated auto thieves use a device known as a code
grabber, which will receive and store the signal from your keychain transmitter, and retransmit at a later time to unlock your system.
Your code hopping transmitters will change their signal every time the button is pressed,
so when a thief grabs then re-transmits your signal, the system will not respond.
If your transmitter button is pressed more than fifty times while it is out of range of the
vehicle (children playing with your keys), the transmitter will not operate when you return
to the vehicle, and will need to be re-aligned to the receiver. To do this, simply press the
lock/unlock button two times within a one second time period. The system will now
respond to that transmitter each time a button is pressed.
For reference the transmitter packaged with your system may not appear exactly as
shown below. This depiction is for reference only.
NOTE: As an option, this system has the ability to operate the vehicles horn which may
require some additional parts. If this feature is installed, the vehicle's horn will beep once
when you lock the doors, twice when you unlock the doors, twice when the Remote Start
feature is activated, and will beep during the car finder mode to allow you to find the
vehicle more easily in a crowded parking lot.
KEYLESS ENTRY
1. To lock your vehicle, exit the vehicle, close all doors, hood and trunk, then simply press
the lock button of your keychain transmitter. To unlock your vehicle, simply press the
unlock button of your keychain transmitter. As a keyless entry unit, for your convenience,
the parking lights will flash once when the doors are locked and twice when the door are
unlocked. If the optional illuminated entry feature has been added, the interior light will turn
on when the doors are unlocked and remain on for 30 seconds or until the ignition is
turned on.
Holding the lock/unlock transmitter button for 3 seconds will activate the car finder mode
causing the parking lights to flash and the optional horn to beep for 30 seconds or until the
button is activated again for 3 seconds or any other button is operated.
NOTE: This system has the ability to unlock the drivers door with the first press of the
unlock transmitter button and then unlock all other doors when the unlock button
is pressed a second time. This optional feature may require additional components. Consult your installation center to determine if this feature has been added
to your vehicle.
Additionally this system can be programmed to automatically lock and unlock the doors
with the turning on and off of the ignition key.

TURBO TIMER MODE
This system provides a means to cool down the vehicles turbo charger, if so equipped, by
allowing the vehicle to continue to run for a prescribed period of time every time the
vehicle's engine is turned off. This feature requires the system to be set up for turbo timer
during installation. Consult with your installation center to be certain this feature was
activated and how long the vehicle will continue to run, 3, 5, or 10 minutes after the ignition
switch is turned off.
To activate the turbo timer:
Anytime the ignition key is in the on position for more than 15 seconds:
1) Place the gear selector in park.
2) Set the parking, (hand), brake.
3) Be certain your foot is off the brake pedal.
4) Press the program/Push-Button switch 2 times within 5 seconds.
The parking lights will flash two times indicating the mode was successfully entered.
If your parking lights flashed four times, this indicates the turbo mode was on and is now
turned off.
With the turbo timer mode selected on, after you've arrived at your destination, while the
engine is still running, set the parking brake, pause 2 seconds, then turn the ignition switch
to the off position. The engine will continue to run the allotted time according to the
selection during installation.
If you do not want the vehicle to continue to run for one cycle, simply step on the vehicle's
brake, or release the parking brake, or activate the transmitter's start button two times in
succession. Any of these will cause the engine to turn off.
