PRECAUTIONS: PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
This Remote Starter with Alarm and Keyless Entry System has been designed to be installed by
PROFESSIONAL INSTALLERS on fuel-injected vehicles with an automatic transmission ONLY.
• Never install this remote starter on a manual transmission vehicle.
• This system must be installed and wired through a safety switch so it will not start in any forward or reverse gear.
• Once you install this system, you must verify that the vehicle will not start in any forward or reverse gear, regardless of
the type of vehicle.
• Read the operation manual for operating.
• Do not install any component near the brake, gas pedal or steering linkage.
• Some vehicles have a factory installed transponder immobilizer system that can severely complicate the installation.
There is a possibility that this system cannot be installed on some immobilizer-equipped vehicles.
• Most vehicles have an SRS air bag system. Use extreme care and do not probe any wires of the SRS system.
• Disconnect the car battery before beginning work on the vehicle.
• Check behind panels before drilling any holes. Ensure that no wiring harness or other components are located behind
the panels that would otherwise be damaged.
• Do not use conventional crimp lock, bullet on any wiring. Poor wiring, i.e. taped joints will possibly introduce
unreliability into the alarm system and may result in false alarms or incorrect operation. We suggest soldering all
connection points.
• Install the wiring neatly under carpets or behind trim to prevent possible damage to wires.
WARNINGS:
1. As with any product that performs automatic functions, there are certain safety precautions that you must
practice and be aware of. Keep the transmitter out of children’s reach.
2. Do not leave anyone in the vehicle while running on remote control.
3. Alert servicing personnel that the vehicle can be started automatically.
4. Do not start the vehicle by remote while it’s in an enclosed area or garage.
5. Always apply the parking brake and lock the vehicle as you exit the vehicle.
6. The vehicle windows must be rolled up.
7. Should the unit malfunction, disconnect the fuse until the problem is corrected.
8. The use and operations of this system is the sole responsibility of the operator.
9. Some areas may have local ordinances that prohibit leaving a vehicle running on public streets.
10. It is not safe to remote start the vehicle if the vehicle is parked on a steep incline.
Do not start the vehicle by remote while it’s in an enclosed area or garage.

RED / WHITE WIRE –PARKING LIGHT RELAY INPUT —
The RED/WHITE wire is the input to the flashing parking light relay. The connection of the RED/WHITE wire will determine
the output polarity of the flashing parking light relay.
If the vehicle you are working on has +12volt switched parking lights, you don’t need to connect this wire.
This wire is already connected to +12volt.
If the vehicle’s parking lights are ground switched, cut the RED/WHITE wire and connect it to chassis ground.
WHITE WIRE — PARKING LIGHT RELAY OUTPUT
(+12 V 10A OUTPUT) —
Connect the WHITE wire to the parking light wire coming from the headlight switch. Do not connect the WHITE wire to the
dashboard lighting dimmer switch. (Damage to the dimmer will result). The limitation of the WHITE wire is 10 AMP max.
Do not exceed this limit or damage to the alarm and parking relay will result.
BLACK WIRE — SYSTEM GROUND –
This is the main ground connection of the alarm module. Make this connection to a solid section of the vehicle frame.
Do not connect this wire to any existing ground wires supplied by the factory wire loom, make the connection to the
vehicle’s frame directly.
BROWN WIRE – (-) HORN OUTPUT – FACTORY REARM (PROGRAMMABLE)
This wire provides a ground output to be connected to the horn of the vehicle. A relay must be used if the horn requires a
positive input. This output is only capable of 500 mA.
RED WIRE — SYSTEM POWER (+12V CONSTANT) —
The RED wire supplies power to the system. Connect this wire to a stable constant +12 volt source.
4 PIN ANTENNA, LED AND VALET SWITCH CONNECTOR:
The antenna should be mounted to the front windshield of
the vehicle facing down. It should be clear of any metallic
objects or tinting and as close to the center as possible.
The Valet switch and LED are mounted within this unit and
are connected with the ribbon cable.

Keep wiring away from moving engine parts, exhaust pipes and high-tension cable. Be sure to tape wires that pass
through holes on the firewall to prevent fraying.
CAUTION: Do not connect the wire harness to the control module until all wiring to vehicle is complete.
6 PIN HEAVY GAUGE WIRING CONNECTIONS
Remember, that when the system starts a vehicle it duplicates the functions of the ignition key switch! Below, we explain
the three basic functions of the ignition switch. Since this installation will require analysis of the ignition switch functions,
we recommend making the three connections below at the ignition switch harness directly.
VIOLET WIRE—STARTER OUTPUT
Careful consideration to the connection of this wire must be made to prevent the vehicle from starting while in gear.
Understanding the difference between a mechanical and an electrical Neutral Start Switch will allow you to properly
identify the circuit and select the correct installation method. In addition you will realize why the connection of the safety
wire is required for all mechanical switch configurations.
Failure to make this connection properly can result in personal injury and property damage.
In all installations, it is the responsibility of the installing technician to test the remote start unit and assure that the vehicle
cannot start via RF control in any gear selection other than park or neutral.
In both mechanical and electrical neutral start switch configurations, the connection of the VIOLET wire will be made to
the low current start solenoid wire of the ignition switch harness. This wire has +12 volts when the ignition switch is turned
to the “START” (CRANK) position only. This wire has 0 volts in all other ignition switch positions.
NOTE: This wire must be connected to the vehicle side of the starter cut relay (when used). For the electrical neutral
switch configuration, this connection must be made between the starter inhibit relay (when used) and the neutral safety
switch as shown in the following diagram. Failure to connect this wire to the ignition switch side of the neutral safety switch
can result in personal injury and property damage. SEE NEUTRAL START SAFETY TEST FOR FURTHER DETAILS.

RED WIRE (2) — +12V POWER INPUT
Remove the two 20A fuses prior to connecting these wires and do not replace them until the satellite has been plugged
into the control module. These wires are the source of current for all the circuits the relay satellite will energize. They must
be connected to a high current source. Since the factory supplies (+) 12V to the key switch that is used to operate the
motor, it is recommended that these wires be connected there.
Note: If the factory supplies two separate (+) 12V feeds to the ignition switch, connect one RED wire of the satellite to
each feed at the switch.
YELLOW WIRE – IGNITION 1 OUTPUT
Connect the YELLOW wire to the ignition 1 wire from the ignition switch. The ignition wire should receive “12 volts” when
the ignition key is in the “ON” or “RUN” and “START” or “CRANK” position. When the ignition is turned “OFF”, the
ignition wire should receive “0” voltage. The YELLOW wire must be connected.
PINK WIRE – IGNITION 2 OUTPUT
Some vehicles have [2] ignition wires that must be powered. Connect the PINK wire to the ignition 2 wire from the ignition
switch. The ignition wire should receive “12 volts” when the ignition key is in the “ON” or “RUN” and “START” or
“CRANK” position. When the ignition is turned “OFF”, the ignition wire should receive “0” voltage. If the PINK wire is not
used, cap the end of the wire.
BROWN WIRE –ACCESSORY OUTPUT (Heater /AC Output)
Connect the BROWN wire to the accessory wire in the vehicle that powers the climate control system.
An accessory wire will show + 12 volts when the ignition switch is turned to the “ACCESSORY” or “ON” and “RUN”
positions, and will show 0 Volts when the key is turned to the “OFF” and “START” or “CRANK” position. There will often
be more than one accessory wire in the ignition harness. The correct accessory wire will provide power to the vehicle’s
climate control system. Some vehicles may have separate wires for the blower motor and the air conditioning compressor.
In such cases, it will be necessary to add a relay to power the second accessory wire.
RS232 TWO WAY SERIAL DATA PORT CONNECTION:
This connector is to be used for Serial Data communications with Fortin and ADS/idatalink modules only!
DO NOT CONNECT THIS TO ANY OTHER WIRING!
This port will only operate correctly with Fortin or ADS/idatalink Modules.

WHITE / BLUE WIRE – (-) INSTANT START & TURN OFF INPUT –
This wire activates and turns off the remote starter each time it sees a momentary ground signal.
Normally used for testing during installation or when activating the module from an after-market system.
WHITE / BLACK WIRE – NEGATIVE SAFETY SHUT DOWN INPUT & HOOD TRIGGER
The White Black provides an instant
shutdown for the remote start,
whenever it is grounded. Connect
the wire to the hood pin switch
previously installed. This wire must
be routed though a grommet in the
firewall and connected to the hood
pin switch. If the pin switch is to be
used with an alarm system, connect
this wire with diode.

Important! This connection is a safety wire and must be connected as shown and tested as specified. Failure to do so
may result in personal injury or property damage. See detail of wiring in the following diagram. This wire may also be used
if the vehicle brake light circuit switches ground to the brake lights. An isolation diode must be used for ground switched
brake light circuits and must be connected to the output of the brake switch.
BLACK/WHITE WIRE – (-) NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH INPUT OR (-) ENABLE SWITCH INPUT –
1. When the BLACK/WHITE wire is grounded, the remote start unit is operable. When this wire is open from ground,
the remote start is disabled.
2. The optional “remote start toggle switch” can be added on to temporarily disable the Remote Start Device, it can
prevent the vehicle from being remote started accidentally. This feature is useful if the vehicle is being serviced or
stored in an enclosed area. To disable the remote start, move the optional remote start enable toggle switch to the
“OFF” position. To enable the remote start, move the optional remote start enable toggle switch to the “ON” position.
3. If needed, this wire can be connect to the PARK/NEUTRAL switch in the vehicle.
(See the TESTING YOUR INSTALLATION GUIDE)
IMPORTANT NOTE: This wire must have a “GROUND” to operate remote start.
WHITE / VIOLET WIRE – POSITIVE SAFETY SHUT DOWN INPUT – MUST BE INSTALLED
This wire provides an instant shut
down for the remote start, whenever
it gets +12volts. If the brake lights
switch in the vehicle switches +12
volts to the brake light circuit, connect
this wire to the output side of the
brake switch. This will allow the
remote start to shut down if an
attempt is made to operate the
vehicle without the key while running
under the control of the remote start.
In most vehicles, in order to shift gear,
the brake pedal must be depressed.
The brake input will in turn cause
the remote start unit to shut off.

WHITE / RED WIRE – TACHOMETER SIGNAL CONNECTION –
Note: You should connect this wire if you program the Start Feature “Tachometer Checking Type”, otherwise do not
connect this wire and tape the end.
Note: No connection of this wire is required, if you use the voltage or timer checking type mode.
This input provides the remote start system with information about the engine’s revolutions per minute (RPM). It can be
connected to the negative side of the coil in vehicle with conventional coils. In multi-coil and high energy ignition systems,
locating a proper signal may be more difficult. Once connected, to test for a tachometer wire, a multi-meter capable of
testing AC voltage must be used. The tachometer wire will show between 1V and 6V AC at idle, and will increase as
engine RPM increases. In multi-coil ignition systems, the system can learn individual coil wire. Individual coil wires in a
multi-coil ignition system will register lower amounts of AC voltage. Also, if necessary, the system can use a fuel injector
control wire for engine speed sensing. Common locations for a tachometer wire are the ignition coil itself, the back of the
gauges, engine computers, and automatic transmission computers.
IMPORTANT! Do not test tachometer wires with a test light or logic probe. The vehicle will be damaged.
How to find a tachometer wire with your multi-meter
1. Set the ACV or AC voltage (12V or 20V is fine.)
2. Attach the (-) probe of the meter to chassis ground.
3. Start and run the vehicle.
4. Probe the wire you suspect of being the tachometer wire with the red probe of the meter.
5. If this is the correct wire the meter will read between 1V and 6V.
IMPORTANT NOTE: No initial programming necessary. Default = voltage sensing mode
GRAY WIRE – (-) 200MA CHANNEL 3 (TRUNK) OUTPUT –
This will become a 1 second pulse ground by activating (button 3)
on the transmitter for two seconds.
The current capacity of this wire is 200 mA. This feature allows you to remote control the trunk release or
other electronic devices. (Relay may be required).
WHITE WIRE: 200 MA (-) GROUND OUTPUT WHEN RUNNING
This wire provides a negative output during the remote start process. It can be used to operate by-pass modules
that may be required in your installation. This wire will provide ground once the remote start process has been initiated
and will remain grounded while the engine is running.
PINK WIRE – (-) 200MA PROGRAMMABLE OUTPUT 2 STEPS UNLOCK OUTPUT
(Factory default setting) (See Alarm Feature Programming)
The 2 steps unlock feature will work for the most fully electronic door lock circuit. The vehicle must have an electronic door
lock switch (not the lock knob or key switch), which locks and unlocks all of vehicle’s doors. When wired for this feature,
pressing the disarm (or unlock) button one time will disarm the alarm and unlock the driver’s door only. If you press disarm
(or unlock) button two times within 3 seconds, the alarm will disarm and all doors will unlock.
Factory Security Disarm Signal Output –
This wire is designed to disarm a factory installed security system. This wire sends a negative (-) 1 seconds pulse upon a
remote start and remote door unlocking. Some factory systems must be disarmed to allow remote starting. In most cases,
this wire may be connected directly to the factory alarm disarm wire. The correct wire will show negative ground when the
key is used to unlock the doors or trunk. This wire is usually found in the kick panel area in the wiring harness coming into
the car body from the door.
Start Status (Shock Sensor By-Pass Control) Output–
This wire is designed to by-pass the shock sensor module. This wire will supply an output at all of times the remote start is
operating plus an additional 3 seconds after the remote start unit is turned off.
Key Sensor By-Pass Output –
This output is for a Key Sense wire by-pass that some Chrysler and Toyota vehicles need to activate remote start.
This wire comes on when remote start is activated and stays on for 20 seconds.
IM_FULL_50SL_REV-A

BLUE/BLACK WIRE – (-) 200 MA ACCESSORY 2 OUTPUT –
This wire provides a 200mA (-) ground output. This output will energize when the remote start is activated, goes away
while the starter is cranking, and then comes back on when the vehicle has started successfully.
YELLOW WIRE – (-) 200MA IGNITION 3 OUTPUT –
This wire provides a 200mA (-) ground output that becomes active 2 seconds before the remote start unit initializes, and
remains grounded while running.
IGNITION 3 OUTPUT
Some newer vehicles use a third
ignition wire which is required to
start and keep the vehicle’s engine
running. If this is the case, wire an
IGN 3 relay (not supplied) as shown
below: Do not connect any vehicle
circuits together, they are isolated for
a reason.

TRANSPONDER INTERFACING USING RELAY
If the vehicle has a transponder system installed, you will need to by-pass the system while the vehicle
is operating under the control of the Remote Start Unit.
To do this:
1. You will need a transponder key that’s already programmed to the vehicle.
2. Remove the trim around the ignition switch.
3. Wrap a thin (28 - 30awg) wire tightly around ignition switch 6 to 8 times and secure it.
4. About 6” down line make another loop of approximately 2” diameter.
5. Place the key inside this loop and secure it to the loop.
6. Connect on end of the (28 - 30awg) wire to pin (87) of the relay module.
7. Connect the other end of the loop wire to Pin (30) of relay module.
8. Connect the pin (86) of the relay module to the ignition wire from the ignition switch.
9. Connect the pin (85) of the relay module to the yellow wire of 20-pin connector
GM VATS KEY OVERRIDE
If the vehicle has the General Motor VATS system installed, you will need to by-pass the system while the vehicle is
operating under the control of the Remote Start Unit. To do this:
1. Measure the resistance of the resistor pellet on the ignition key then select a resistor within 5% of the key’s value.
2. Locate the pair of VATS wires in the vehicle, usually a pair of thin gauge wires running from the ignition switch to the
VATS control module.
3. Connect the YELLOW wire from Remote Start Unit to TERMINAL #85 of an external relay. Connect terminal #86 of
the relay to a fused +12 volt.
4. Cut (#1) wire (as shown), and connect the ignition switch side of the cut wire to terminal #87a of the relay.
Connect the other side of the (#1) wire to terminal #30.
5. Connect the previously selected resistor from terminal #87 to the second(#2) wire (as shown).

CHANGING THE BATTERY IN YOUR TRANSMITTERS
SLRF434: The transmitter uses one (1) 3-volt lithium ion battery (#CR2032) with the (+) side facing upward.
To replace the battery, you will need to use a small flat blade screwdriver. Locate the small notch on the lower
right side of the transmitter case next to the key ring. Using the flat blade screwdriver, carefully pry the top
case from the bottom case. It should snap apart after breaking the seal. Before removing the battery, note the
direction of the positive (+) terminal. Place the new battery in exactly the same manner, being careful not to
bend or damage the contact terminal. Snap the cases back together and then test the transmitter to insure
it arms and disarms the alarm.

TESTING YOUR INSTALLATION
Caution!! The follow procedure must be performed after the installation of the Remote Start Device. It is the responsibility
of the installing technician to complete these tests. Failure to test the unit in the following manner may result in personal
injury, property damage, or both.
1. Test the BRAKE shutdown circuit: With the vehicle in park (P), start the vehicle using the remote transmitter.
Once the engine is running, press the brake pedal. The vehicle should shut down immediately. If the vehicle
continues to run, check the brake circuit White/Violet wire connection.
2. Test the HOOD PIN shutdown circuit: Start the vehicle using the remote transmitter, Once the engine is running,
pull the hood release and raise the hood. The vehicle should shut down immediately. If the vehicle continues to run,
check the hood pin Blue wire connection.
3. NEUTRAL START SAFETY TEST:
1. Set the vehicle parking brake.
2. Block the drive wheels to prevent vehicle movement.
3. Sitting in the vehicle, turn the ignition switch to “ON” or “RUN” position. But do not start the engine.
4. Step on the brake pedal and shift the gear selector into “DRIVE” (D).
5. Put your foot over the brake pedal but do not press down on it. Be ready to step on the brake to shut
down the Remote Start Device.
6. Start the vehicle using remote transmitter.
a. If the starter does not engage, the test is complete.
b. If the starter engages, immediately step on the brake pedal to shut down the system, recheck your VIOLET wire
(starter output wire) connection. The heavy gauge VIOLET wire must be connected to the ignition switch side of
the Neutral Start Switch. If the vehicle you are working on does not have an Electrical Neutral Safety Switch, it will
be necessary to reconfigure the Remote Starts Wiring to accommodate this vehicle. The information concerning
the Mechanical Neutral Safety Switch provided below will help you to determine if the vehicle you are working on
has this type of safety switch and will provide alternative wiring methods to accommodate this situation.
MECHANICAL NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH CONSIDERATIONS
Mechanical neutral safety switch configurations differ slightly in that they do not offer the same level of safety when
installing a remote start device. Often when the ignition switch is turned off while the gear selector is in any position
other than park or neutral, the mechanical function will not allow the key to be turned to the start position or be removed
from the ignition cylinder. This configuration prevents mechanical operation while the vehicle is in gear but offers
no consideration for electrical operation. Because of this potential problem, this installation requires the additional
connection of a safety wire from the remote start device to the vehicle PARK/NEUTRAL ECM input or the vehicle key in
sensor. This connection will prevent remote start operation if the key is left in the ignition switch regardless of the gear
selector position.
IM_FULL_50SL_REV-A

PARK/NEUTRAL ECM INPUT
The Park/Neutral ECM input is the preferred method of installation. This not only maintains the integrity of the factory
circuit, it is also the easiest to install, provided the vehicle you are working on has this ECM input.
The installation required for this application (shown below), indicates a slight reconfiguration of the control switch wiring.
Shown is a typical GM Park/Neutral ECM input circuit.
To connect the Remote Start unit to the GM Park/Neutral ECM input:
Locate the Orange/Black reference wire in the “C2” connector found at the ECM in GM B Body vehicles or, locate the
equivalent reference wire in the vehicle you are installing the Remote Start Unit in.
1.Connect the BLACK/WHITE Neutral Safety Switch wire to this reference wire.
2.NOTE: If the optional remote starts enable toggle switch is installed, connect the one side the enable switch to this
reference wire and connect the other side of the enable switch to the BLACK/WHITE Neutral Safety Switch wire (H2/8)
of the Remote Start unit. The reference diagram on the next page shows a typical GM B Body ECM reference wire and
how it is to be connected to the Remote Start Unit.

KEY IN SENSOR CIRCUITS
If the vehicle you are working on does not have or you cannot locate the ECM reference wire, there are two alternatives
available. Although not preferred, the vehicle Key In Sensor may be reconfigured to allow a margin of safety and will
prevent the vehicle with a Mechanical Neutral Start Switch from starting in gear.
WE ADVISE THAT YOU MAINTAIN THE FACTORY CIRCUIT WHENEVER POSSIBLE.
The following two circuits may be used only if the above circuit is not available.
NOTE: When completing an installation using either of the following key in sensor circuits, if the operator inserts the
ignition key while the vehicle is running under the control of the Remote Start, the vehicle will shut down. This must be
explained to the operator as it is in contrast to the normal operation of a vehicle utilizing an electrical neutral start switch
and is inconsistent with the operation manual.
Additional information concerning Key in Sensor methods 1 & 2 are listed below and should be reviewed before
considering either alternative.
METHOD 1 will allow the safety required for the remote start unit and prevent the vehicle from starting while in any gear
other than Park or Neutral while the key is in the ignition cylinder. However, if the key is left in the ignition switch and the
door is left opened, the added relay will be energized causing a 150mA drain on the battery.
METHOD 2 will allow the safety required for the remote start unit and prevent the vehicle from starting while in any gear
other than Park or Neutral while the key is in the ignition cylinder. However, the original factory key in chime module will
not alert the owner that the key has been left in the ignition switch. In addition, this may also affect other warning tones
such as the light on reminder.
These situations should be carefully considered before altering the vehicle’s wiring and must be fully explained to
the consumer.
