be carried out once per remote start.
Example: if your Module is programmed for a run time of 3 minutes and your vehicle has been
running for 2 minutes already, pressing the START/STOP button will reset the counter to zero and the
Engine will run for another cycle (in this case, 3 minutes).
Advanced Features: Installation-programmable Options
The Remote Car Starter was designed with flexibility and OEM integration in mind. With its
programmable options, this unit can single-handedly control nearly any electrical system in your
vehicle.
Caution: The programming of your system should be left to a professional. Changing any
one of the settings may affect the operation of your Remote Car Starter. Please note that the
following programmable options may require additional parts and labour.
Passive or Active Arming of the Starter Kill
See section “Arming the Starting Kill” earlier in this guide.

Remote Door Locks
If your Remote Car Starter was installed with the Remote Door Locks option, you will have the
convenience of remote keyless entry. See section Arming the Starter Kill, earlier in this Guide, for
further instructions on remote door locking and unlocking.
Priority Door Access
If the Remote Door Locks option is installed on your vehicle, this safety feature allows you to
unlock solely the driver’s door with a single press of the UNLOCK button on the transmitter. Upon a
second press of the UNLOCK button within 6 seconds, all the other doors will unlock.
Ignition-controlled Door Locks
This is an added security feature. If your Remote Car Starter was installed with the IgnitionControlled Door Locks option, the doors will automatically be locked as soon as the ignition key is
turned to the IGNITION ON (RUN) position while the brakes are pressed. When the key is turned to the
OFF position, the doors will automatically be unlocked.
Ignition Relock
On Remote Car Starters of this series, when Ignition-controlled Door Locks are enabled and the
ignition key is in the IGNITION ON (RUN) position, should any monitored door be unlocked and opened,
all doors will be relocked next time the brake pedal is pressed.
Secure Lock
(Disabled by default.) Before your vehicle can be remote-started, the factory security system must
first be disarmed. The Secure Lock feature may be required on certain vehicle models with factory
security systems that automatically unlock the doors when the security system is disarmed.
To keep your vehicle protected when the factory security system is disarmed for a remote start,
Secure Lock will relock your doors as soon as the vehicle is started. Once the engine is shut down
by remote or after its runtime has expired, Secure Lock will also rearm your factory security system
and relock the doors.
Remote Trunk Release
If your system was installed with the Remote Trunk Release option, you can open your trunk by
pressing the TRUNK button for 3 seconds on the remote transmitter. The OEM-style alarm will be
disarmed until the LOCK button is pressed.
Safe Start
If this feature is enabled, the user must press the START/STOP button twice within 3 seconds to
remote-start the vehicle. This will eliminate accidental remote starts, e.g. when children are playing
with the transmitter.
• To remote-start your vehicle if Swap Start Mode is selected, press and release the PANIC
button. While the LED on the transmitter is flashing, press LOCK.
• The AUX 2 output can be activated by pressing the START/STOP button.

is shut down by remote control), then shut down the engine.
If your vehicle has an automatic transmission, proceed as follows to set the system to
Turbo Mode:
1. With the engine already running, press the LOCK, UNLOCK or START/STOP button on the
transmitter until the parking lights come ON.
2. Remove the ignition key from the ignition switch.
The engine will continue running.
3. Exit the vehicle and close the door.
Press the TRUNK button; this will lock the doors and confirm that the vehicle is in Turbo
Mode. The engine will shut down after 60 seconds.

Troubleshooting Poor Transmitting Range
Many factors may affect the operating range of the transmitter. Some of these are:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
The condition of the battery in the transmitter.
The operating environment (for example: downtown radio-frequency noise, airports, cellular
phone towers…).
Metal: any type of metal will affect operating range. This includes the vehicle itself.
The shape of the vehicle can affect range as well (vans in general have less range).
The shape of the roof and A-pillars brings about considerable radio-frequency deflection (in
this case, the signal from the remote control). As a result, the direction in which the vehicle is
facing in relation to the remote control can affect the range. Straight on (standing in front of
the vehicle) generally gives you the greatest range; the second best performance is from the
back. Using the remote control from either side of the vehicle will usually give the lowest
range.
The range will be significantly lower in a crowded parking lot than in open space.
Always hold the transmitter high, approximately at shoulder height.
The operating range will be somewhat lower on vehicles equipped with an aftermarket or
factory alarm.
