Using Your System
Warning! Safety First
The following safety warnings must be observed at all times:
■
Due to the complexity of this system, installation of this
product must only be performed by an authorized DEI dealer.
■
When properly installed, this system can start the vehicle via
a command signal from the remote control transmitter.
Therefore, never operate the system in an enclosed area or
partially enclosed area without ventilation (such as a garage).
When parking in an enclosed or partially enclosed area or
when having the vehicle serviced, the remote start system
must be disabled using the installed toggle switch. It is the
user's sole responsibility to properly handle and keep out of
reach from children all remote control transmitters to assure
that the system does not unintentionally remote start the
vehicle. THE USER MUST INSTALL A CARBON MONOXIDE
DETECTOR IN OR ABOUT THE LIVING AREA ADJACENT TO THE
VEHICLE. ALL DOORS LEADING FROM ADJACENT LIVING
AREAS TO THE ENCLOSED OR PARTIALLY ENCLOSED VEHICLE
STORAGE AREA MUST AT ALL TIMES REMAIN CLOSED. These
precautions are the sole responsibility of the user.
■
Use of this product in a manner contrary to its intended mode
of operation may result in property damage, personal injury,
6
© 1999 Directed Electronics, Inc.
or death. (1) Never remotely start the vehicle with the vehicle in gear, and (2) Never remotely start the vehicle with the
keys in the ignition. The user must also have the neutral safety feature of the vehicle periodically checked, wherein the
vehicle must not remotely start while the car is in gear. This
testing should be performed by an authorized DEI dealer in
accordance with the Safety Check outlined in the product
installation guide. If the vehicle starts in gear, cease remote
start operation immediately and consult with the authorized
DEI dealer to fix the problem.
■
After the remote start module has been installed, contact your
authorized dealer to have him or her test the remote start
module by performing the Safety Check outlined in the product installation guide. If the vehicle starts when performing
the Neutral Safety Shutdown Circuit test, the remote start unit
has not been properly installed. The remote start module must
be removed or the installer must properly reinstall the remote
start system so that the vehicle does not start in gear. All
installations must be performed by an authorized DEI dealer.
OPERATION OF THE REMOTE START MODULE IF THE VEHICLE
STARTS IN GEAR IS CONTRARY TO ITS INTENDED MODE OF
OPERATION. OPERATING THE REMOTE START SYSTEM UNDER
THESE CONDITIONS MAY RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE OR
PERSONAL INJURY. YOU MUST IMMEDIATELY CEASE THE USE
OF THE UNIT AND SEEK THE ASSISTANCE OF AN AUTHORIZED
DEI DEALER TO REPAIR OR DISCONNECT THE INSTALLED
REMOTE START MODULE. DEI WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE OR PAY FOR INSTALLATION OR REINSTALLATION COSTS.

original equipment from manufacturer (OEM) factory remote systems. The Remote Start/Valet Take-Over sequence can be programmed to initiate with one to three (1-3) presses of one of the
OEM transmitter buttons. Consult with your dealer to determine
the transmitter button and the number of presses (1-3) that have
been programmed for this sequence. Spaces are provided below for
